  • To make your work easier, Create a new folder on your PC and name it as lgv10twrp or other if you want, and transfer the TWRP file you downloaded above to this folder.
  • In the lgv10twrp folder, rename the TWRP recovery file to twrp — this makes it easy to enter the command for installing TWRP recovery below in this guide.
  • Boot your device into bootloader mode.

To boot into bootloader Follow this It is very simple and easy–>>

Open cmd here

Power off the device. Then wait for 4-5 seconds after screen goes off.

Press and hold Volume down + Power button together to enter bootloader mode. You will see FASTBOOT written at top.

This screen should be displaying the bootloader status as Unlocked, at the bottom of the screen. If it says Locked, then you need to unlock bootloader fo your LG V10 first, and for that see the link right above step 1 above.

-> Now, open the command window in the lgv10twrp folder, in which you have the modified boot and TWRP files. For this:

  1. Open that lgv10twrp folder and then left click on empty white space in the folder.
  2. Now, while holding shift key, right click on empty white space to get a pop-up as shown below.
  3. Now choose Open command window here option from that.

You will see a command window open up, with location directed to lgv10twrp folder.

  • Now Boot your device into bootloader mode by issuing the given command
adb reboot bootloader

Once you run the above command, it will enter bootloader mode / fastboot mode.

  • Now check whether your device is connected properly or not.Just issue the following command
fastboot devices

→ After issuing the commands, you should get a serial no. with fastboot written after it. If you don’t get fastboot written on cmd window, then it means your device is not recognized your PC.You need to reinstall adb and fastboot drivers, or change restart PC or use original USB cable.

  • You have a choice here. If you want install TWRP permanently, then use the following command:
fastboot flash recovery twrp.img

Don’t restart your device just yet.

The above command installed TWRP, but to prevent Android from removing it in favor of default 3e recovery, you need to boot directly into TWRP. Do one simple next step.

Note: you have to use the recovery image’s filename in the above command, which in our case is twrp.img, from step 2.

  •  Now Boot into TWRP recovery now by using the following command
fastboot boot twrp.img

→ Once you are in TWRP, allow it to mount system as read/write.

  • Done!!!That’s it. You successfully installed TWRP recovery on your device. To confirm, with device already in TWRP, tap on Reboot, and then on Recovery.

Your LG V10 should load TWRP recovery again.

  1. I got to the point where I get the serial # (with fastboot written next to it), But I trie to flash the TWRP but it says “cannot load”

    • I got it rename the TWRP file as TWRP only not TWRP.img
      If you renamed it TWRP.img then type this command:- fastboot flash recovery twrp.img.img

  2. My fastboot mode says “LOCK STATE – unlocked” but when I type in “adb reboot bootloader” it tells me “error: device not found”

    Any ideas?

    • Okay, I realized I was already in fast boot. Now when I type “fastboot flash recovery twrp.img” it works fine. I then type “fastboot boot twrp.img” and it says the following
