**************

Here's my "One Click" method to get TWRP onto the G4 H811.

Special thanks to the following:
**Originally script written and tools by avicohh, modified by MicroMod777 to work only on H811.
**Special thanks to Manh_IT and RenaKunisaki for help getting correct flash commands.
**Special thanks to Unjustified Dev for TWRP.
**Special thanks to Team Codefire and vn_mobile for root.

PREREQUISITES:
**Must be on T-Mobile USA LG G4 H811 10H. WILL NOT WORK ON 10N. DO NOT DOWNGRADE TO 10H OR YOU WILL BRICK.
**Must have LG drivers installed and USB debugging enabled
**Windows computer
**OEM Unlocked in Developer Options.

Instructions:
Step 1: Plug phone to computer.
Step 2: Unzip H811-One-Click.zip
Step 3: Press CLICK-HERE-LG-G4-H811-UNLOCK-TWRP.bat to begin
Step 4: Phone will reboot a few times
Step 5: Pull battery after 1 minute only when on screen instructions say so.

MD5: 7640484c4842cb883a702d0e09d89c9e

Issues: This might take a few tries to run if the LG drivers don't fully install in download mode.
***If you still can't get it to work, uninstall all LG Drivers, reboot and install drivers from here: LG drivers


MANUAL MODE:
Step 1: Copy recovery.img to your internal storage.
Step 2: Pull battery, put back in. Press and hold Volume up and plug cable in. (Enter Download Mode)
Step 3: On your computer open up your Device Manager and look for:
**Ports (COM &LPT)
****LGE Mobile USB Serial Port (COM?)
Look for the port number in COM#! ?=#.
Example:LGE Mobile USB Serial Port (COM3). So mine is port 3.
Step 4: In your One-Click folder press Shift/Right-Click-Mouse and press "Open Command Window Here".
Step 5: Type Send_Command.exe \\.\COM? Make sure the ?=Port number from Step 2.
Example. Mine is Send_Command.exe \\.\COM3
Step 6: Type "id" without quotes and make sure this comes up: uid=0(root) gid=0(root) context=u:r:recovery:s0
Step 7: WARNING, IF YOU GET THIS PART WRONG OR DON'T USE H811 YOU CAN BRICK!
*****Type Flash command only for H811:

dd if=/data/media/0/recovery.img bs=8192 seek=35840 count=5120 of=/dev/block/mmcblk0

Step 8: Type: LEAVE
**Phone will reboot
DONE.....

Enter TWRP:Must be OEM Unlocked in Developer Options.
**In ADB: adb reboot recovert
or...
**Pull battery, put back in. Press and hold volume down/power. When LG Logo appears only let go power for a second and then press again till factory reset screen appears. Do factory reset to boot into TWRP. If you don't see TWRP run program again.

so, i'm a little confused.....do you have to use low effort root first or do you just put your phone in download mode then run this script.?then by installing super su you will gain root?sorry i am so computer illerate.i have followed the low effort root page since day 1, have rooted other phones but like i said ...just not up to speed transferring files,running commands etc. so i have held off trying to root myself even though i am pretty sure i understand the directions.just wondering if this way might be easier,thx in advance for any help in clarifying this for me.

No, you don't need low effort root. This is essentially the Nexus way. Just follow instructions and it will flash TWRp. Once you successfully reboot into TWRP. Download SuperSU.zip and flash it and you have root, it's very easy.

If you want TWRP to flash rom's then you want this!

But you can also use this to get root, by flashing the SuperSu.zip from TWRP. This is way easier than having to download a 5gb system.img, and manually running all the commands for root in the other root thread.

Thanks for that good explanation! Guess you posted just before I did! :)

I just hope no non-H811 person tries to flash this and bricks their device. I put a big warning on OP. But as always somebody always doesn't read OP.

I had to run it twice on my phone and five times on my lady's phone, but after erasing data on both phones, trying to get into the recovery that wasn't installed, both are rooted and restored. Don't know why it went that way, but it doesn't much matter now that everything is well. Thanks again.

I think it was the drivers needing to load in download mode. Each time you ran it did it say to pull battery when it finished?

    So is this basically unlocking the bootloader?

    no, this installs twrp so you can either flash SuperSU for root or to flash a custom rom, this one comes to mind for some reason http://forum.xda-developers.com/tmobile-g4/development/rom-g4-h811-xtreme-rom-v1-0-7-28-15-t3167667

    the t-mobile phone has a very easy bootloader to unlock, go into developer options and check Enable OEM unlock


    i gave up. lol. I plugged in phone with USB debugging on. .bat goes through the whole process to where i have to unplug and pull battery even though on my my phone i see a 0% which is weird. Held down power and volume down key and when LG logo comes up i let go of power key for one second and press again. This just takes me to the factory reset screen. i give.

    How do I boot into TWRP without root? I tried the power + Vol down method and hit factory reset option and it literally did wipe my device.. Lol ?

    install Quick Boot from the play store and use that to boot into recovery

    you dont need root to flash twrp, you need twrp to flash SuperSU to get root
