NOTE: You must unlock the bootloader first before installing TWRP!

App Install Method (Requires Root):

Download the Official TWRP App (root required):

Install the app and open it. Agree to the Terms. Select TWRP Flash. Select your device from the device list (H811, H815) and choose a version. The file will download to your Downloads folder. Browse to and select the file. Tap on Flash to Recovery. Find out more about the app here.

LG G4 (any model):

Unlocking + Fastboot Install Method (No Root Required):


The recommended way is to use FWUL - a simple adb/fastboot ISO which has all drivers etc included.

If you still want to use Windows you will need the platform-tools from the Android SDK on your computer. Find the Android command line tools section on the page linked and install the SDK tools package. From the SDK Manager, download only the platform-tools to get adb and fastboot binaries.

Windows users will also need proper drivers installed on their computer. You can try the Naked ADB drivers or the Universal ADB drivers if you don't already have a working driver installed

Your device needs to be officially unlocked by LG before it can flash custom images! (Hint: There is a completely unsupported method available for locked devices here: TWRP-in-FIsH for all locked G4 devices like: H810, H812, H818, ...)

To unlock your device you have to go to: http://developer.lge.com and follow all steps there to get and flash your LG unlock binary. You can NOT proceed withouth completing this step!

Download the correct image file and copy the file into the same folder as your adb and fastboot binaries. Rename the image to twrp.img and type:

fastboot boot twrp.img

This will boot up TWRP but for the moment in memory only. To complete the installation and making it persistent:

Copy the twrp.img to your device while still in twrp (e.g. with a file explorer or by typing adb push twrp.img /sdcard)

Flash the twrp.img with the twrp GUI to the recovery(!) partition (choose the button at the bottom named 'Image' to show the copied image)

done. You can now reboot into recovery again to check it has worked.

Note many devices will replace your custom recovery automatically during first boot. To prevent this, use the key combo explained in this FAQ to enter recovery. After typing fastboot reboot, hold the key combo and boot to TWRP. Once TWRP is booted, TWRP will patch the stock ROM to prevent the stock ROM from replacing TWRP. If you don't follow this step, you will have to repeat the install.

TWRP Install (Requires TWRP 2.8.4 or higher already installed):

Download the latest TWRP image file (.img) from the download link and boot TWRP. Go to install and find and select the Images... button. Browse to the image that you downloaded and select it. Choose recovery and swipe to flash.

dd Install Method (Requires Root):

Download the latest image file (.img) from the download link above. Place it in the root of your /sdcard folder and rename it to twrp.img. Run the following commands via adb shell or a terminal emulator app:

su

dd if=/sdcard/twrp.img of=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/recovery
