TWRP RECOVERY


TWRP Recovery v2.6.3.0
Team Win Recovery Project 2.x, or twrp2 for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. It’s a fully touch driven user interface – no more volume rocker or power buttons to mash. The GUI is also fully XML driven and completely theme-able. You can change just about every aspect of the look and feel.
You can download it here
DOWNLOAD:
TWRP

Instalation:

Flash via CWM.
for further details please kindly visit this orginal thread here

INSTALLING A CUSTOM ROM

Download the ROM image, which is usually a zip archive, and copy it into the root folder of your SD card.

Important: you do not unzip the .zip file - just copy it as is.

You can do it by

attaching the phone with a USB cable and selecting the option of mounting the SD card to be used as a drive on the computer
or

unmounting the SD card, physically taking it out of the phone, and inserting into your own card reader
or

downloading the ROM straight from the phone browser
Once you've copied the ROM image, you can proceed to flashing it

Flash It

The process of installing new firmware or low-level system software in general is called flashing.

We will be flashing the new custom ROM over the stock one that came with your phone.
And Reboot to recovery...
For booting to CWM recovery /TWRP recovery
Go to advance boot option in developer option and enable it
and long press power menu
for manual booting switch off the phone and
Press both volume + ,volume - and the home button together with the power button
release all buttons expect power button when we get a vibration and
release the power button after the lg logo has appered
this will let you get in the recovery menu

back up existing ROM (which you should do unless you've already backed up manually) from back up and restore

then
wipe data and wipe cache, which you should only do if you want to do a clean install, i.e. when upgrading from the stock ROM. Note: this does not wipe your SD card data - it only wipes the phone's internal memory.
and wipe dalvic cache too in advance option
and after that click in install from sd card
The ROM you downloaded should show up in the list. If it doesn't, make sure you've put it into the root folder of the SD card.
and click INSTALL

FAQ AND QUESTIONS

Code:
What is the root?

In the most literal sense, root is a part of a plant that typically lies below the surface of the soil. Rooting a smartphone is completely different: by rooting users can gain privileged access to Android’s subsystem (or root access). This is useful for accessing data, making backups, or changing the "base" of your smartphone, such as the Android (ROM) interface.

How does rooting work?

By rooting an Android device, you basically install a new kernel. A kernel is the conductor that will tell the software how to use the hardware portion of your device. Very simply put, the new kernel allows for more access and more customizable access to your devices hardware.

What is a Custom Rom?

A ROM is an Android-based system. This is actually the system that you use. TouchWiz is the rom developed by Samsung, the HTC Sense, etc ... We talk about custom rom (Custom) when the developer of the ROM is an independent group or individual. For example, CyanogenMod is a custom ROM for example, based on Android "pure".In detail, this is a set of consistent data with a chip ROM (read only memory), present on your smartphone.

What is CWM ?

CWM or Clock Work Mod is a custom recovery for android which repalaces the orginal recovery given by manufacture,It has more options and support than the stock one

What Does Custom roms do?

Custom roms has no boltwares and other apps which increases the RAM usage ,thus its lag free and smooth

Can you add also how to update official ROM, downgrade from v20 to v10, flashing baseband, reverting from custom to stock & vice versa.
What else, hmmm I'll post if I can think or remember.

There's a lot of guide scattered, hope this will be put in one place. So that a noob or new user ask common question will be point or be directed to this post.

And if ever this one will be updated and most of the howto's and common questions and guides then it would be nice this will be stickied. :beer:
