EDIT: the OP has now edited the thread topic at my suggestion to clarify he's only interested in the the T-Mobile LG V30. Initially it was for ALL LG V30 and his initial post thus had misinformation, which he's now corrected.
Progress Towards Root/TWRP/ROMs (not achieved yet)
I predict Root/TWRP/ROMs will be achieved when the US998 and H930 are placed on the LG Developer Bootloader unlock list.

So far what I have gathered is that like the LG G6 the fastboot commands have been removed
There is in fact one fastboot commands still active and that's fastboot flash all,my proposal is that we modify a otas boot.img and root the boot.img then flash that ota package.
I don't know anything about development just throwing a idea out there
And neither of those LG V30 phones have ADB flash commands removed, so you are not correct there.
Oh, you are probably ONLY talking about the carrier-branded models.
Only the carrier-branded
models of the LG G6 and LG V30 have the ADB flash commands removed. The official carrier unlocked models are not crippled in any way.
The LG V30 official carrier unlocked models (US998*
and H930) released by LG directly (and also sold by some 3rd party retailers) have full ADB commands and will be the "developer" models with full root, TWRP, custom ROMs.
These two models will be released end of October and sometime soon after that (hopefully very soon), will be placed on the LG Developer Bootloader Unlock list.
Within a WEEK after that you'll have root, ROMs, TWRP, kernels for the LG V30. That's what happened with the LG G6, which has TONS of dev work.
June 29, placed on the LG Developer Bootloader Unlock List, by first week of July -- BOOM!
So, you might want to edit your thread title to to be CARRIER BRANDED LG V30?
Your thread title says "not achieved yet". Because when the LG V30 official carrier unlocked models (US998, H930) get root, ROMs it WILL be achieved.
You are probably talking about the carrier branded models -- but it's like saying all cars have gear boxes in the wrong location for shifting gears on the open road. Well, not all cars have "stick shifts" at all. Some have automatic transmissions. You need to clarify you are only talking about the gear boxes of cars which have manual transmissions -- where you would be shifting gears while driving.
This has all been discussed in the LG V30 "Unlock bootloader and Root" thread.
Everything you need to know about this topic was posted back in early September
in posts #6
Because even then -- a MONTH BEFORE CARRIER RELEASE -- we knew what LG was doing with their 2017 flagships. I posted information so people could plan accordingly. If you wanted root for sure on LG V30, you knew what to buy.
In that thread, I suggested at least twice that someone open a CARRIER BRANDED ROOT thread, if they ONLY want to talk about that
. But no one has yet -- unless you change (edit) the title to this thread? Over in the T-mobile LG G6 thread -- which also has the so-far useless bootloader unlock -- there was 23-page root bounty thread, but after six months has been abandoned as a lost cause.
Again, the carrier unlocked LG G6 models have two pages of root, ROMs, kernels, recovery.
It's only the carrier-branded 2017 LG models which are crippled.
The official carrier unlocked US998 will be sold by LG, Best Buy, Amazon, B&H Photo and possibly other retailers. Not to be confused with the U.S. Cellular model US998 which is the "unofficial" carrier unlocked model. The U.S. Cellular US998 will not qualify for bootloader unlock as it's sold by a carrier.
