LG Tribute HD USB drivers are necessary for ADB mode, Diag Mode, and Download mode.
The most common use of ADB mode is unlocking the bootloader and download mode is used for flashing a stock ROM. The Diag Mode is used for CDMA programming.
Even though the bootloader of Tribute HD can’t be unlocked, at least we can use the ADB mode to enable adoptable storage. This feature was added in android marshmallow and addresses the low internal storage problem to a big extent. This way we can adopt a part of sd card as internal storage which can be used for storing apps and game data.
