CONGRATS TO @davidporter1010 ON THE FIRST EVER ROOTED LG G6!!!

Video review by @davidporter1010 https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=de...&v=alH4YEiV5bc


A message to those with other variants of the G6:
The H870 International variant and the us997 are the only ones with an official bootloader unlock from LG.
Should there be a time where your flashing mechanisms get cracked, simply mention my name on this thread or via private message and I would be happy to create a thread with TWRP for your device.



WHAT IS TWRP?

Oh come on, you know what it is - don't try to fool me!
In case you're serious, though...

Team Win Recovery Project is a custom recovery for Android devices.
It allows you to back up and restore your data, flash custom ROMs to your device, repair broken file systems, and root your device.

BUILD 4
You can donate here to help me buy a us997 and that way I can further contribute towards development:

FULL STEPS FOR OBTAINING ROOT
Follow LG's bootloader unlocking instructions here before you begin!

1. Download the latest TWRP .img for your device from this thread

2. Use the same fastboot tool you downloaded in the LG unlock instructions to flash TWRP using the command:
Code:
fastboot flash recovery twrp-x.x.x-x-us997.img
* Replace x.x.x-x with the actual version you are flashing!

3. Enter "fastboot reboot recovery" into the fastboot tool

4. Swipe to allow modifications, then hit wipe and tap format data, type "yes" and press enter

3. Install SuperSU, or Magisk to gain root and make system bootable, or just flash
no DMvertity opt file to make system bootable without root

8. Go to [Reboot] -> [System].

Wait 2-5 minutes for your device to finish setting itself up.

try this

HOW-TO INITIALIZE TWRP: (for new phones)
1. If you completed Part 1 successfully, you should be in TWRP now. At this point, you will reach the screen asking you if you want to allow system modifications.
2. Select "Keep /system RO". (Don't swipe right or you may not be able to boot into system if you failed to complete next steps. However, you can swipe right to allow modifications if you are confident that you can complete next steps.)
3. Go to "Wipe" menu of TWRP and you will find "Format Data". Press "Format Data" and type "yes" to continue.
4. Go to "Reboot" menu and Press "Recovery" to reboot TWRP.
5. Download the latest dm-verity and force encryption disabler zip on your computer.
6. Transfer the zip to your phone.
- Option 1: MTP: Connect your phone with computer and just copy the zip to internal storage. (similar to how you transfer files when in system.)
- Option 2: ADB: Connect your phone with computer and run command "adb push /path/to/zip /sdcard/".
- Option 3: External SD: Copy the zip to an external SD and then insert the card to your phone.
7. Go to "Install" menu of TWRP and flash the zip.

TWRP is initialized and fully functional at this stage. Now you can either reboot into system or root, flash custom ROMs via TWRP.
