Ok, I need some help. I just installed the rom over stock. I installed the correct xposed file. It was working great for a couple of hours and through a few reboots. I installed an xposed module to turn off USB and MTP notifications while plugged in. Now it won't boot. It is stuck at the LG logo. I have tried getting into recovery and nothing works. Any ideas how to get into recover? Right now it has been sitting at the LG logo for 7 minutes. Should I just wait a see if it starts up eventually?

EDIT: Ok got into fastboot and from there into recovery. Gonna try reflashing the rom and if not I'll just go to my backup until I can factory reset and reinstall

EDIT: Whew, looks like reinstalling the rom worked... it is optimizing and hopefully all is well. Thanks the OP for the rom.

Are you in the right thread?

Lol yours is funny so it nulls out the nasty sarcasm
It wasn't meant to be nasty... I grinned the whole time I was typing it... I may have even chuckled a tad bit.

BTW, if I was being nasty it would have looked more like this...

Just a quick update... I've not had much time but I do have the time working correctly now, however I've reintroduced the long booting times so I am working on that before my next release, it's all kernel related... As for official support, I've never asked @Dees_Troy to support the device nor will I as I could trade it in any day (never know when I'll see a new device I like)

TWRP 3.0.0 Has Been Released

Common sense isn't all that common

Didn't know they released already. I've not synced my sources with them in a day or so. I've been waiting for them to officially launch 3.x before I released mine.

Cool, I just saw and read it earlier, your current one is pretty damn good as it is now so I can't complain... Was merely just bringing it to your attention... Thank you for all the hard work...

    This requires you to have an unlocked bootloader which will wipe data if you have not unlocked already.

    Recovery does take some time to boot It has taken up to 45 seconds for the TWRP curtain to show for me

    To get to bootloader without adb:
    Turn device off
    Hold Vol Down
    Insert USB plug while plugged into your PC
    Hold Vol Down until fastboot pops up

    Instructions:
    If you have issues with adb or fastboot follow this post: HERE
    If bootloader is unlocked:
    reboot into bootloader
    Code:
    adb reboot bootloader
    fastboot flash recovery twrp-2.8.7.1-h901.img
    fastboot boot twrp-2.8.7.1-h901.img

    If your bootloader is locked:
    enabled developer options
    in developer options "Enable OEM unlock"
    reboot into bootloader
    Code:
    adb reboot bootloader
    fastboot oem unlock
    fastboot reboot-bootloader
    fastboot flash recovery  twrp-2.8.7.1-h901.img
    fastboot boot twrp-2.8.7.1-h901.img


    Known issues:
    You get to see that it's not truly 2 displays
    Time is not saved from Android to Recovery
    Display does not turn off when it times out

    I've messaged @KAsp3rd to include it in his OP.

    ONLY PERFORM IF YOU HAVE ALREADY FLASHED TWRP AND CREATED AN EXTERNAL BACKUP!!!
    1. Hold Volume Down
    2. Hold Power button until you see LG screen
    3. Release Power button and then rehold Power button
    4. Follow on-screen prompts to perform a Factory Reset (If you have TWRP, this should not actually factory reset, but there has been one case of it doing it, that's why I suggest keeping a copy of your backup on your computer), may take a minute to boot into TWRP
    5. Enjoy TWRP without fastboot

    EDIT: On hold until verified on latest TWRP/more devices.

    Device tree is here https://github.com/KAsp3rd/android_device_lge_h901

    Compiled using omnirom 5.1 with 6.0 bootable/recovery

    Get superSU from chainfire http://download.chainfire.eu/supersu

    Thanks to @TheJesus @shabbypenguin @Dees_Troy @_that @bigbiff @helicopter88 @savoca @autoprime and anyone I've forgotten.

    android has a file /system/etc/install-recovery.sh when you boot up it overwrites teh recovery with stock, chances are its doing that.

    boot into fastboot, flash it, then use

    fastboot boot twrp-2.8.7.0-h901.img

    that will drop you into recovery (it takes like 30 seconds) form there you can do a syou wish, then click on reboot system and it will remove that file so youll have twrp always.
