Hi to best of my understanding, even if u enable the UE folder it does not guarantee that you would have VOLTE . VOLTE config files for the carrier JIO / AIRTEL must be there in the phone already else it will not support VOLTE.

Hence , even though u had enable UE it did not enable VOLTE as ur device did not have the VOLTE config files for AIRTEL / JIO .

Now I say because of ur mistakes u have been landed in a difficult situation with ur modem . DO NOT FLASH ANYTHING MORE ON UR DEVICE.

If u want to restore ur modem I would highly advice u to get a paid service from @ Unlock_LG on Telegram . He may charge anywhere between 10 to 30 USD and he is the best bet . I know the guy personally and except probably a few guys in China he is the most knowledgable and easily accessible . Also the guy is based out of Ukraine so ur supporting someone from the country. Also tell him that u had donated during the SM8150 firehose crowdfunding and see if he can discount u a bit on the service . You may also ask him if he could do a Cross Flash to India Version which may bring u VOLTE ( but CROSS FLASH is never easy so it may also break the Modem once again. TG user MAMA TAO has extensive knowledge on Cross Flashing )


For free solution , which can cause more harm than good u check the below Group

t.me/v50thinq 

User VL48 from the group could be ur best bet , @ SFPGuido ( original founder of the UE folder trick ) , Mama Tao , audietron , Enforc are some of the people who could give u free advice but then it may or may not work out .

What's the resale value of this phone right now? Had G8x for 6-8 months and sold it very soon after LG's announcement about shutting down mobile business (Got 18k back then ..almost same as my purchase price). Would've had it for a bit longer but hardly used the second usage because of battery life & Slow charging speed (Even if you're on a BT call, phone charging speed gets significantly low while it should've been based on device temp)

I have LG G8xthinq US edition.

For volte enable i have tried *#546368#850# - Field Test - Universal

Enable (it was not allowing to open so make one folder in local storage

"enable_ue" retsart ) - create a new profile allow all 4 option volte

& wifi calling after restart on phone setting (##4636##*)

it shows enable volte but Mobile Radio Power is off. i can turn it on but after few sec it automatic goes off.

- i have tired reset network settings

- done factory reset also

nothing works

previously it was showing mobile network not it's not turning on Mobile radio power

on radio band if i select any option it says unsuccessful.

Any pointer how to keep mobile radio power on ?

Sounds risky but .. Search for .. flashing Indian rom .. on your device.. that might solve all above ..

thanks a lot for taking out time and sharing the details. i will definatly connect with the guy you mentioned. 

Actually  it was showing volte when i tried *##4636##* but that option was no enable. 2nd i have tried BSNL sim before changing the setting it was working fine only issue with jio bcoz it need volte. even jio net was working fine though.

i have used jio calling app for few days to check and it was working but it need data & location all the time to connect the calls. And in india i found same model which have android 12 and it have volte option. so i guess i need to just rest the settigns which i have changed but it was changed on Field test mode so have to do it there only

Heard from one more guy recently from telegram LG group facing similar issues  . His initials is PS . Hope you are not the same one . 


Should be probably a battery issue as with age it deteriorate and is heating up as well due to which fast charging is being stopped by the ic or a problem with the charging port . 

G8X is EOL now but Remote Unlock LG on Telegram is still developing some good stuff for LG devices more so for LG WING & V60 but some of the features should also work on LG G8X .

@itonline

One user on TG has bought it from from https://www.patelofficial.com/productdetails?i.... and was mentioning improved battery backup . 

I do not know the buyer or the seller personally so take your own precautions if you are buying from the above link . Else ebay or Amazon.com would be safer bet but costlier considering forwarding agent would be required. 


Are the LG service center not having the spares available?

Also I had the LG mumbai service technicians mobile number from few years back .  Maybe he knows some genuine source from where you can get the battery . Sharing it via dm
