Do you think about installing TWRP recovery as your main LG G4 custom recovery image? Great news for all LG G4 users who were searching for a working guide on this topic as I am here to help them.
By installing a custom recovery on your LG G4, you can create Nandroid backup, you can flash custom ROMs and mods that are already available or that may become available in the near future, remove bloatware, flash .zip files, ensure root access, overclock the CPU and more and yes, I strongly believe that a custom recovery like TWRP is the ideal choice.
In order to get started, you need to know that warranty may be void if you follow the procedures given on this page. However, only you are responsible for what it happens, so make no mistake. I won’t be liable if any damages occur to your LG G4 or to its components.
In order to avoid losing all the data from the phone, take a full backup of your phone and keep in mind that this guide is for one device only – for LG G4 and no other Android handset. Before staring, also unlock the bootloader of your smartphone, enable the USB Debugging option by going to Menu – Settings – Developer options and no less important, you must check the battery status of your handset: if there is less than 60% power left, then be suee that you have to plug in the charger and take no chances as you might end up with a bricked device.
Also make sure that you can use a computer, laptop or desktop and there, disable the security protection because as it might interfere with the flashing operation; after that, just install Android SDK and only now, you are ready to go!
