Hello people.

So after a long search, I managed to find the method to install TWRP on my LG Magna H502f V10a.

To do this, he must first root phone with the method: LG ONE CLICK ROOT:

- Install the latest drivers for LG: https://sourceforge.net/projects/avi...2.exe/download or drivers LG Verzion: https://sourceforge.net/projects/av....2.exe/download

- Download LG One Click Root 1.3 (Graphic UI): http://forum.xda-developers.com/lg-g...lipop-t3056951

- Unzip the archive

- Enable Usb debugging on your phone . (General > About phone > Software information, tap Build number seven times and then go to Settings > Developer options and turn on Usb debugging)

- Connect your phone to pc.

- If the phone not Recognize, try to switch entre MTP and PTP options.

- Launch LG ONE CLICK ROOT and be guided to the end of the procedure.

- Once completed you will SUPER SU installed on your device.

- To check the status of root you can download ROOT CHECKER from the play store.



Step 2: UNLOCK THE BOOTLOADER and TWRP INSTALL:

- To do this, first download both files (I specify that it is for the H502f) https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bwm...dPQkV2a2M/view

- And download and install TERMINAL EMULATOR from the play store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...al.androidterm

- Copy both files and uboot.img and recovery.img in the root of the internal memory of the phone

- Go to TERMINAL EMULATOR and run the following commands (after getting the root right):

su
dd if=/storage/sdcard0/uboot.img of=/dev/uboot count=1024
dd if=/storage/sdcard0/recovery.img of=/dev/recovery count=32768
reboot recovery

And you're in TWRP 2.8.7.1 and there you can make a backup just to have a little backup in case pending a Custom ROM which I hope will happen soon.

Thank you.

Root alternative method
Hey...you can also gain root priviliges by using the Kingroot apk ...Also in my device (Lg H500) instead of TERMINAL EMULATOR, i did use the pc connection and adb shell
(in order to avoid typing)...
But all these are details....The tutorial is 100% correct and confirmed...Cudos

Exclamation Help!!
Hello, i have a problem with the installation of twrp and unlocking the bootloader. When i type the command "dd if=/storage/sdcard0/uboot.img of=/dev/uboot count=1024" in the emulator, it says, "not valid direcory or location". I tried to change the location of the files, although i am prety sure they are where they are supposed to be. I am desperate

Are you about to have:
1- unzip the archive (for both files: uboot.img and recovery.img)?
2- copied the 2 files .img in root of the internal storage memory of phone (not sd card) ?

Copy both files to the internal storage (storage/emulated/0/) and use these commands


dd if=/storage/emulated/0/uboot.img of=/dev/uboot

dd if=/storage/emulated/0/recovery.img of=/dev/recovery

That works for me.
