First of i need to thank @Singular777 for his k10 TWRP (i hope he doesn't mind me stealing it... great work man! http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=69381986&postcount=126) because i used that to port to k8.

So us k8 users now have a great TWRP 3.0.2 (almost) everything works. Well... all that we need for a proper root.

Download it from here:

if you have the k350n10e firmware:

for the k350n10f firmware:
http://viid.me/qrxYMo
for the k350n10g firmware:
http://viid.me/qrxOPE

k350F v10c:
http://viid.me/qiexpw or http://viid.me/qiexQW (try them both, on of them supposed to work)

k350k v10c (credits: voasl):

other versions: https://forum.xda-developers.com/lg-k10/development/mtk-portable-twrp-porter-t3536123

It seems like you are earning money on those links lol! :D
Does it? Are you serious, man??? FYI there were like 400 clicks and i "earned" less then a dollar... i worked my ass out (even after my phone was already rooted) for making MTK devices rooted and i think a made a good job... i presented the easiest and clearest method which is actually not bricking any devices... i built scripts to exchange ramdisk compression and port TWRPs for every different MTK LGs... i helped people in PMs, Facebook and TeamViewer... the least i deserve is a god damn coffee, don't i???

Not like you would deserve an answer on that comment anyways...

I don't know why did you get easily offended bro! Chill! I didn't say anything...I appreciate your work and if you setup a donation account on PayPal or something we will donate to you :) You are the nicest person here :) We say a big thank you for our helping our dev. Community on XDA :)

Earning money through links is a new thing for me lol so I was just surprised someone used it here on XDA! That's it ;)

Use the "fastboot boot twrp.img" command to get into twrp. You cant flash it. Read the rooting thread for more info.
I dont really understand what you want to post a tutorial about however i suggest you to read the other related threads i linked in the rooting thread and if you have any new stuff wirth a new thread then of course make it.

Please help, i have followed your steps https://forum.xda-developers.com/lg-k10/how-to/friendly-root-method-lg-k8-k10-t3531223, landed here only to discover you dont have my firmware. I went through the link from your last comment and cant make any sense of it.
My firmware version is V10b-AME-XX. PLS HELP

You have to port TWRP for yourself: https://forum.xda-developers.com/lg-k10/development/mtk-portable-twrp-porter-t3536123
then you can try to root depending on your firmware security patch date.

does it? Are you serious, man??? Fyi there were like 400 clicks and i "earned" less then a dollar... I worked my ass out (even after my phone was already rooted) for making mtk devices rooted and i think a made a good job... I presented the easiest and clearest method which is actually not bricking any devices... I built scripts to exchange ramdisk compression and port twrps for every different mtk lgs... I helped people in pms, facebook and teamviewer... The least i deserve is a god damn coffee, don't i???

LineageOS 15 on LG K8 - true or false?

@gottlasz , you have great knowledge and experience.

Can you verify the accuracy of the information on the following pages?

LG K8 Lineage OS 15 – Download and installation Guide

The article leads to the lineage-15.0-20170913-Unofficial-MT6735-64-bit.zip file from which I extracted build.prop.

In the build.prop file is information that it is prepared for Tecno Camon C7 - convergence parameters for LG K8.

From the first link you can open the page:
TWRP download for LG K8
on which is the link to TWRP-recovery-for-LG-K8.img.

It is puzzling for me that there are very many devices on this list [LineageOS 15 ROM Devices List – Android Oreo [UPDATED FREQUENTLY] with unofficial LineageOS 15.

What do you think about all this?

I think if its not on xda than its false... anyways it's just one of those sites collecting visitors with popular topics but no real value...
Our k8 is really sensitive. Its not gonna work with a ported rom. Someone with the nowledge should build a rom straight for the k8 but i guess we have to wait for it...
