* Do NOT update to Pie yet if you wish to unlock bootloader in order to root.
For bootloader unlock purposes, use the H930 Oreo KDZ versions with no later than July 2018 security patch: 20d or 20r.

Look at the names for dates in the title in that thread link. AFTER you unlock bootloader, then you can update to newer firmware (like this Pie).
Flashing a newer KDZ (like to Pie) will not re-lock your bootloader.
With unlocked bootloader, then on Pie KDZ you can install TWRP and root.

Stable TWRP 3.3.1 is recommended by our TWRP dev for Pie.

To install TWRP (or re-install TWRP on Bootloader Unlocked Pie) and root, PLEASE follow these instructions for success!

* If you've already updated to Pie with a locked bootloader, see post #2 for instructions on how to downgrade to earlier Oreo firmware to first unlock bootloader. Or downgrade back to most recent Oreo just because you decided you don't like Pie.


* If you have no desire to unlock bootloader or your bootloader is already unlocked, see full image KDZ and KDZ-based TWRP-flashable zips below.

* ALSO do NOT update to LG stock Pie yet if you wish to run LOS-16 "Pie" custom ROMs -- at least for now. See REASON HERE. Stock Pie update conflicts with LOS-16 Pie, even if you downgrade back to stock Oreo. After stock Pie update, your phone has been permanently changed/degraded when going back to Oreo for custom ROMs. Using Permissive kernel can overcome some of those issues, but you have been warned.

Whereas you do need to update to stock Pie first as a foundation before trying to install "Android 10" LOS-17 custom ROMs. However, those ROMs are still unfinished work in progress -- so if you don't like them and want to go back to the older stable LOS-16 "Pie" custom ROMs, then you've totally ignored the warning above. Again, stock Pie makes permanent changes.


NOTE: After installing Pie, if you get weird lag,
* try this fix. Just make a backup in LG Bridge. Nothing else. Somehow CREATING the backup (but not actually using it to restore anything) re-sets some stuff in Pie, so it acts like it should? I know it sounds strange but it works. Thanks to @thefpspower for the tip!
* OR If that doesn't work or you don't have access to PC, try this: go to Settings> Restart & Reset> Reset App Preferences. Thanks to @HoussiLAM for that tip. Both may do the exact same thing, I've not experimented to see.

Flash the "ROM" with latest TWRP. Flash Magisk. It's just stock KDZ but in TWRP-flashable version. Not debloated nor meant to be updated in the future. It's just a very convenient mechanism to have newer stock firmware instead of using dev patched LGUP to flash partitions, etc.

This version of the TWRP flashable zip has the new Pie encryption disabled and LG root checker removed. No encryption enforced, but you can encrypt in TWRP if you want afterwards.

The dev recommends formatting data before installing this TWRP-flashable zip: "format data before flashing, not wipe but format". That's your decision. Others have not.

*Stable TWRP 3.3.1 is recommended by our TWRP dev for Pie.

TWRP-FLASHABLE NOTES:

If those instructions above do not work for you for some reason, then go through these full blown steps (adapted from Section 6 of WTF Instructions):

a. Wipe Data – Factory Reset
b. Install – set storage to the External SD (if you have a microSD card) OR drag necessary files over from PC once in TWRP.
c. Install the TWRP-flashable zip
d. Install the stable Magisk zip.
e. Install @JohnFawkes AnyKernel 3 RCTD Remover (root checker disabler); this disables LG's firmware root checks, which may impede performance.
f. FORMAT DATA (Select WIPE, then FORMAT DATA, then select yes.)
Do NOT delete your OS, but you do need to FORMAT your data , not just "wipe" it this time. Otherwise you may get an encryption error when you boot up the first time. If you get any red mount errors, go back to the TWRP reboot menu and select reboot to recovery and try to FORMAT DATA again. Then, after successfully formatting...
g. Reboot – "Reboot Recovery" from TWRP reboot menu (choose to reboot back to Recovery). Now that the data partition has been formatted, TWRP needs to reload the recovery partition for usage. If you skip this step, when Magisk is installed again below, it may think that /data is still encrypted and set "preserve force encryption". This is also a good sanity check that LG encryption has been removed from /data.
h. Re-flash the Magisk zip again. (This is to make sure, due to Pie changes.)
i. Reboot – to System (NOW you are finally rebooting your phone! Until now this whole section has been done within TWRP.)


STRONG SUGGESTION: After successfully doing all this, when you finally boot back to LG Pie, install an app like this to easily facilitate rebooting to TWRP recovery in the future: Recovery Reboot. Allow it root privileges when asked by Magisk and put icon shortcut on your desktop.



Also, please make another TWRP backup.

Here's how to flash with LGUP:

----------------------------
UPGRADING LG V30/V30+/V30S TO PIE KDZ FIRMWARE WITH LGUP

1) Go into download mode (power off completely, then hold volume up button while plugging in USB cable)
2) open patched LGUP and flash PIE KDZ either via UPGRADE (to keep your data, but see Note about TWRP) or via REFURBISH or PARTITION DL. If the latter, then in the pop up box "Select All". Use the attached patched LGUP in this post.
* NOTE: YOU CAN NOT USE LGUP "UPGRADE" IF YOU HAVE TWRP CUSTOM RECOVERY. LGUP "Upgrade" is like a manual OTA and is only for pure stock (but you can have unlocked bootloader). If you have TWRP custom recovery and want to use LGUP, then use PARTITION DL OR REFURBISH which will NOT keep your data and will wipe out TWRP. Or use the TWRP-flashable zip (ROM) instead of LGUP, which will keep your data and will keep TWRP.
3) IF your bootloader is unlocked, it will remain unlocked. If it's not unlocked, then you will just be updating to Pie -- but will have to temporarily downgrade to early Oreo if you ever want to unlock bootloader for root.

HOW TO INSTALL DEV PATCHED LGUP

0. UNINSTALL any prior LGUP version. Seriously. Go to Programs folder and delete the LGUP folder if you must.

1. DOWNLOAD THIS DUAL VERSION OF DEV PATCHED LGUP, made by @tecknight:
https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=11410963190603845019
(Or use attached file from bottom of this post. Thanks to @tecknight! Please go here and click the THANK BUTTON!)

2. Extract LGUP_DualMode.zip to a folder on your PC.

3. Browse into the folder and launch LGUP_Store_Frame_Ver_1_14_3.msi.
Follow the prompts to complete the install.

4. In that folder, right click and select "Run as Administrator" on "SetDev.bat" to set LGUP to developer mode. READ THAT AGAIN.

5. Launch LGUP using the desktop shortcut. NOT from folder icon!

As mentioned before, use UPGRADE, REFURBISH or PARTITION DL modes. REFURBISH and Partition DL are probably best.



WARNING: In LGUP do NOT go messing with modes not mentioned in these instructions. Especially do NOT use Chip Erase.
I don't care what anyone else tells you. If you listen to them, let them help you recover from messing up your phone.

Quote:

3) ChipErase: Dangerous, This will erase IMEI/efs, Do not try this if you do not have a NV backup.


It's all fairly easy. Most people breeze right through this. But if you have any problems, go through this list:
  • Make sure you in download mode BEFORE opening the patched LGUP file.
    This is at the top of the list as some people forget to do that. The remainder are in no particular order. If that doesn't work,
  • Try different USB port,
  • Try different USB cable,
  • Try different computer.
  • Reinstall LG mobile drivers on your PC.
  • Reinstall dev patched LGUP again.
  • Reboot the computer.

If you ask for help, that's the list of items we are going to give you anyway.
