Official stock Android 6.0 Marshmallow 20i files for the T-Mobile LG G4 H811 variant only. Included below: TWRP-flashable stock rom, boot, modem and bootloader zips. Stock 20i KDZ and individual images are also included.

20i NOTES...
1. *AntiRollback / QFuse V2* Safe to downgrade to 10N only.
2. Marshmallow bootloader requires bootloader unlock via fastboot

Requirements:
You must have TWRP 2.8.7+ installed to use these zip files. Thanks to Dees_Troy as always for that. Or you need LGUP installed to flash the KDZ in download mode.


Install Directions:
You can install stock 20i M with zip files in TWRP or flashing a KDZ in LGUP or LG Bridge. Due to the new 20i bootloader fastboot oem unlock requirements there is almost no benefit in using one method over the other.. both KDZ or ZIP upgrade methods work. If coming from Lollipop there is no way to retain TWRP or root since the new bootloader has a new unlock method.

To flash via zip in TWRP:
1. Download LG-H81120i-Flashable.COMPLETE.zip place it on internal or external sdcard (external preferred).
2. (re)Boot into TWRP if not there already.
3.* Backup current partitions: boot, system, data, efs to external sdcard if possible (optional but suggested)
4.* Up to you if you want to wipe data (TWRP > Wipe > Swipe slider) but not needed if coming from a stock rom.
5. Install LG-H81120i-Flashable.COMPLETE.zip (Install > select zip > swipe to confirm/flash)
6. After zip finishes you can reboot into M! (if TWRP asks if you want to install SU, HIT NO!!!)
7. If you want root or TWRP follow the bootloader unlock directions in the next section below.

To flash via KDZ:
1. Easiest way to flash the KDZ is just using the official LG Bridge tool. You can grab it for Windows or Mac HERE
2. Alternative to LG Bridge is downloading the 20i KDZ yourself from the Codefire directory link further below then following the LGUP thread HERE for a how-to on KDZ flashing. .
3. If you want root or TWRP follow the bootloader unlock directions in the next section below.


Bootloader OEM Unlock + Root:
Starting with the Android 6.0 20i bootloader it has to be unlocked, sorta like a Nexus, with fastboot. Previously only 'OEM Unlock' had to be toggled in Android Developer settings for TWRP or custom boot images to work.

1. Flash stock 20i using zip or KDZ. Boot into Android after upgrade to 20i.
2. Download the twrp-2.8.7.1-h811.img file HERE. This file needs to be on your computer and external sdcard*.
3. Download the latest SuperSu zip (2.67+) from HERE [Thanks to Chainfire] and stick on external sdcard*.
4. Confirm "OEM Unlock" is set to enabled in the hidden Developer Settings.
5. Enable "USB Debugging" in Developer Settings, connect USB cable PC <-> Phone... and send the following 3 commands in command prompt/terminal:
Code:
adb reboot bootloader  (phone reboots to bootloader)
fastboot oem unlock (this wipes ALL data!!)
fastboot boot twrp-2.8.7.1-h811.img  (phone boots TWRP)
6. For perm TWRP: In TWRP hit Install > Images... (bottom right corner) > select TWRP.img on ext sdcard > select "recovery" > swipe.
7. If you want root: Hit the Home button > Install > select SuperSU zip on external sdcard > swipe.
8. All done. Reboot into Android. (if TWRP asks if you want to install SU, HIT NO!!!)

*if you do not have an external sdcard to save SuperSU and the TWRP.img onto.. you will need to skip saving the files to sdcard until AFTER you fastboot OEM unlock and boot into TWRP. After fastboot booting TWRP you can use adb push to put SuperSU and TWRP.img onto the internal sdcard to install with TWRP. Or you can use the MTP mount option in TWRP and drag n' drop the files from the computer to the phone. You cannot store the files on the internal sdcard before the OEM unlock because OEM unlock wipes all you data.

Downgrade:
To downgrade you can use TWRP to restore your backups... and then just flash the matching bootloader zip and modem zip from my previous threads... or just check the CODEFIRE DIRECTORY link for previous stock files.

OR

Use LGUP HERE to flash a previous KDZ version. KDZ will remove TWRP but easy enough to reinstall that.

I'll be using this space to respond to some questions rather than posting throughout the thread where others may not see it. Everything should be pretty standard at this point though. These are 100% stock files.. not debloated or deodexed or anything.

Feb 16 2016
I have edited the OP to suggest the 2.8.7.1 TWRP over the 3.0.0-0 version for now. I have had a few users in IRC tell me that after flashing 20i, unlocking bootloader, installing twrp then flashing CM13 causes some issues with data not mounting and some mention of "cannot find crypto footer". Will talk to dees_troy tomorrow hopefully and see what's what.... not sure if it's a TWRP issue.. or an LG issue or wat. But just in case.. using a known good working TWRP is the best bet for now.



Q & A:
Q:
I know the answer but, updating via LG Bridge will loose Root/TWRP right?
If that the case which i know it is, is there a way to root in Marshmallow? Or is just safe to flash the files but stock recovery?

A:
due to the new bootloader unlock on 20i it is possible to flash stock unrooted 20i and then bootloader unlock and install TWRP/root. Directions for bootloader unlock are in the OP!

Just installed all this along with the latest xposed.

I had OEM unlock checked before I flashed.

Check out this post. Stated you need OEM Unlocked in Developer Options first:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=62104913&postcount=3

Also to get to TWRP: completely shut down the phone. Remove the battery if you need to. Then when it's off, hold down Power and Vol Down buttons together. Then when the LG logo appears let go of Power Button for a second (still holding down Vol Down) , then hold the Power Button and Vol Down again. The factory reset screen comes back, click yes and yes. It will reboot into TWRP. (this is if you know for a fact TWRP is still there)

I could have sworn I had it checked. I always have it checked.

Especially on a phone that will let me.

Now what do I do? Its just bootlooping the LG screen.

You wouldn't have it checked if you flashed the complete zip above. I'm guessing you would need to wipe all (except internal and/or sd card), then reflash the complete zip, boot into system. Check OEM unlocked in Dev Options. Then reboot back to recovery, flash SuperSU.

I'm thinking this would make it work, not sure though.

    I'll be using this space to respond to some questions rather than posting throughout the thread where others may not see it. Everything should be pretty standard at this point though. These are 100% stock files.. not debloated or deodexed or anything.

    Feb 16 2016
    I have edited the OP to suggest the 2.8.7.1 TWRP over the 3.0.0-0 version for now. I have had a few users in IRC tell me that after flashing 20i, unlocking bootloader, installing twrp then flashing CM13 causes some issues with data not mounting and some mention of "cannot find crypto footer". Will talk to dees_troy tomorrow hopefully and see what's what.... not sure if it's a TWRP issue.. or an LG issue or wat. But just in case.. using a known good working TWRP is the best bet for now.

    I see you didn't follow me advice ,:eek: i hope some one can confirm about downgrading doesn't produce a brick using the 10n KDZ. So that way we/us users can downgrade and Root/TWRP without a problem.

    ---------- Post added at 03:27 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:25 PM ----------



    This is awesome News, can you provide Steps? (Commands and so on) so others can follow without a problem?
    Thanks man

    Here are the steps I took to achieve root on the TMO MM update

    used adb to boot into fastboot mode- adb reboot bootloader
    fastboot boot (recovery image location/name ... I used twrp-2.8.7.2-h811.img located on my desktop (I just dragged and dropped the twrp image into the command window) This will boot you into a "temp" TWRP recovery, flashed the TWRP 2.8.7.2 zip located on my SD card
    rebooted from the "temp" recovery into recovery (that I flashed) then installed the SuperSu 2.6.7 zip. REBOOT SYSTEM
    6
    Updated zip is now added to the OP.. old one has been removed.

    as for those currently screwed... sorry :X I didn't think including 2 partitions I did would have messed with the OEM flag. In fact.. they don't directly.. but perhaps some sort of chain of wiping. What appears to be happening is persist and rct partitions from the KDZ get flashed which must be wiping the other partitions related to OEM Unlock... so due to flashing SuperSu 2.67 it patches the boot.img which causes the boot error... OEM Unlock is no longer set but needs to be due to the custom boot.img now required for root on Android 6.0. C-c-c-combo breaker. :(

    The new zip should hopefully no longer wipe the OEM Unlock toggle. Anyone who flashed the zips but didn't flash SuperSu.. you can probably boot just fine but you'll have to re-enable OEM Unlock bfore being able to use TWRP again.


    How2Fix:
    For those who flashed SuperSu and need a fix: you'll have to flash the 10N KDZ using LGUP to get android booting again then toggle OEM Unlock... then reinstall TWRP through Download Mode. Then reflash the new COMPLETE file.
