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.
NOTICE: The LG G5 H830 currently has flashing locked!
You will need to use a tool to get around this limitation. At the moment, Team Win nor myself cannot provide anything for this.
The community, and user @tungkick has however provided an alternative method of flashing, which can be done via a full firmware flash using a TOT file.
See here for instructions: http://forum.xda-developers.com/tmobile-lg-g5/development/root-h830-t3384526
A message to those with other variants of the G5:
Should there be a time where your flashing mechanisms get cracked, simply mention my name on this thread or via private message and I would be happy to create a thread with TWRP for your device.
I have device trees ready for ALL variants of the G5, pending their unlock!
WHAT IS TWRP?
Oh come on, you know what it is - don't try to fool me!
In case you're serious, though...
