Hello guys!
I wanted to clear up some confusion among new people on how to root, unlock bootloader, install twrp etc.

All credits go to @pvineeth97 for his great work on the g4c (h525n).

Let's start:
1. First off all make a backup of your phone's data.
2. Downgrade to android lollipop (https://forum.xda-developers.com/g4/general/rom-android-6-0-marshmallow-lg-g4c-t3314927)
3. Unlock the bootloader (https://forum.xda-developers.com/android/general/guide-bootloader-unlocked-t3637155)
4. Flash twrp (https://forum.xda-developers.com/android/development/recovery-twrp-3-1-1-lg-g4c-t3612956)
5. Flash marshmallow (https://forum.xda-developers.com/g4/orig-development/twrp-flashable-stock-mm-rom-g4c-t3670765)

optional:
6. Flash lineageOS (https://forum.xda-developers.com/g4/development/rom-lineageos-14-1-t3668489)

Hello. I am trying to install TWRP so that I can install Lineage OS on my LG G4c. However the aboot file link is dead and the bootloader unlock thread is closed. What should I do? Is there currently a way to install Lineage OS on G4c?
