Thank you @shunjou for helping RS988 to go official!
This is the official support thread for TWRP for RS988.
Installation from Stock:
**If your bootloader isn't already unlocked, go to the LG Developer website. You'll need to create an account. You can get the necessary ADB and fastboot tools from the Android SDK Platform Tools.**
If you wish to flash a stock ROM, you MUST flash a root .zip such as SuperSU to disable dm-verity and storage encryption! If you later decide to install a custom ROM, and didn't disable dm-verity on stock, you will have to COMPLETELY FORMAT your internal storage. Don't risk it.
1. Reboot into the bootloader with the command "adb reboot bootloader" and issue the command "fastboot flash recovery twrp-x.x.x-x_rs988.img", replacing "twrp.x.x.x..." with the location of the TWRP image on your drive.
2. Once it is done writing the image and says "finished," detach all power sources and remove the battery. This step is important—if you reboot into the system instead, TWRP will be overwritten by the stock recovery.
3. Reinsert the battery. Then start the phone, holding down both the Volume Down and Power button. When the LG logo appears, quickly release and re-press the Power button, continuing to hold Volume Down. This should bring you to a Factory Data Reset screen.
4. Confirm "Yes" on the two prompts (don't worry, no data will be deleted—we've overwritten the stock recovery) and you will be in TWRP.
Make sure to follow these steps as written, and make backups if necessary. You wouldn't want to risk saying "Yes" and actually wipe your data, right?
