WARNING: The stock boot image has dm-verity, which prevents you from booting if you swipe to enable system modifications!
SOLUTION:
Flash a root such as SuperSU or phh-superuser. You can also flash no-verity-opt-encrypt.zip.

Supported Models :
TP260 & MP260

Prerequisites :
YOUR BOOTLOADER MUST BE UNLOCKED

How to unlock the bootloader :
1-enable oem unlock in the developer settings
2-reboot to fastboot [adb reboot bootloader] then issue this command [fastboot oem unlock]
note: this will wipe your data]
-If you have problems with the device drivers installed , you will need to install lg bridge, you can download it from here:
http://tool.lime.gdms.lge.com/dn/downloader.dev?fileKey=PWZO7A26B9UW

How to flash Twrp:
BOOT INTO FASTBOOT MODE:
With your phone off, connect your usb cable to your phone while holding VOLUME DOWN to boot into fastboot mode or just type [adb reboot bootloader] in the adb terminal

ONCE YOU ARE IN FASTBOOT MODE:
Open a command prompt and type "fastboot flash recovery <path_to_recovery.img>” without the quotation marks.
Example: fastboot flash recovery C:/Users/John/Desktop/recovery.img
[don't forget to extract the downloaded recovery zip to get the recovery.img]

WHEN THE FLASH COMPLETES: (Takes about 2 seconds)
On your phone, unplug the usb cable and POWER IT OFF BY PULLING OUT THE BATTERY and putting it back in.

BOOT INTO RECOVERY MODE FOR THE FIRST TIME
HOLD VOLUME DOWN + POWER until you see the LG logo and then temporarily release the POWER button, immediately pressing and holding it back down until you see the white prompt [factory reset] screen. You will NEVER release the volume down button in this process!

Use the hard keys to select "YES" and then "YES" again to boot into TWRP

How to Disable encryption and flash super su [Install Root]:
1. In TWRP, go to Wipe > Format Data. Enter the keyword ‘yes‘, in the provided space and enter. This will wipe the automatically encrypted filesystem, and decrypt it.
2. Once the wiping is done, reboot back into recovery. Go to Reboot > Recovery.
3. When the recovery boots again, connect your phone to the PC and Enable MTP under the Mount section.
4. Transfer the downloaded ‘no-verity-opt-encrypt-**.zip’ and ‘SR1-SuperSU-v2.78-SR1-20160915123031.zip to your internal storage or EXTSD
5. Disconnect the device now.
6. Tap on Install. Now, navigate your phone’s storage and select ‘no-verity-opt-encrypt-**.zip’. Finally swipe the ‘Swipe to confirm Flash’ button on the bottom of the screen.
7. The flashing process will merely take a few seconds. And when it’s done, follow the same method to flash the root package – SR1-SuperSU-v2.78-SR1-20160915123031.zip
Wait 1 or 2 minutes after the zip files are done flashing then reboot system and PROFIT! Your phone may take 3-5 minutes to boot the first time and it might boot-loop once or twice at the Metro PCS or T-Mobile splash screen but don’t worry this is expected.

EDIT: So i messed up and apparently uploaded the 32bit TWRP by mistake and haven't built a bootable 64bit twrp in a while. I've been debugging building a 64bit TWRP based on an Oreo kernel.
I have uploaded RedWolf recovery which supports both 32bit and 64bit I'm sure of it this time. Sorry for the inconvenience and being a real d!^k to anyone who brought up having error 255 when flashing 64 bit builds in TWRP. This redwolf recovery will resolve such issues.

Do you have the lg drivers installed? It works for me on both Ubuntu and Windows 10

There is a 64bit TWRP available on the link in the OP. If your phone won't charge with 64bit TWRP, please stick with 32bit software until the issue is resolved. I have very little information on this, it happens on some TP260 and MP260 devices. Also Double tap to wake also doesn't work for some on 64 bit. There appear to have been multiple display models used in this device. It's not clear what other parts could be different and if that could be a factor. Hopefully we can resolve this issue soon. But I'm fairly clueless at this point. I tried updating my kernel to 10w and adding just dt2w and 64bit commits with no luck.

Hey, guys, hi. I'm having trouble getting into twrp. When I give it volume down + power release power and enter factory reset, I give it YES and then YES again, it restarts and the lock bootloader window appears. It doesn't go into twrp, I'm stuck there.

I apologize, I was able to go into recovery and do the rest of the steps. A thousand thanks to the creator of this tutorial!

Do not take official mp26010x, OEM unlock in Dev option is grayed out. Use the LG UP to flash kdz to mp26010j, then flash fastboot twrp3.2.1-0(64bit).
Profit!! ;]

Just ignore or disable ota notices.
