It may seem that charging mode serves the only purpose of charging the phone when connected to PC, but it does more than that.

To Unlock the bootloader as well as to install a Custom recovery the phone should be in Charging Mode.

In charging mode, files cannot be transferred between phone and PC.


File Transfer Mode –

The Second USB connection mode is File Transfer or MTP mode. It will let you share files between your LG Aristo and Windows PC via USB Cable. In this mode, both the Internal Storage and SD Card (if installed) are available for file transfer.

  1. Only photo transfer works. PDF, music, etc DOES NOT. I know how to do this on every other phone I have ever had. It will only give a connection to DCIM or PHOTOS. MetroPC is no help- “not trained”.


    • If you change the USB connection mode from “Photo Transfer” to “File Transfer” then you’ll be able to transfer any file.
      When connecting your phone to PC, pull down the notification bar, tap on “Photo Transfer” and change it to “File Transfer”
