Team Win Recovery Project 3.0.2



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...

Team Win Recovery Project is a custom recovery for Android devices.
It allows you to back up and restore your data, flash custom ROMs to your device, repair broken file systems, and root your device.

i may be able to do it in a few hours as well but until then, I wanted to ask, is it not possible to fastboot boot <img> without flashing it? Only asking because that's what i've been doing lately with my huawei watch for testing without overwriting my recovery.

Same
Code:
fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.0.1-0-h830.img
target reported max download size of 536870912 bytes
sending 'recovery' (19560 KB)...
OKAY [  0.488s]
writing 'recovery'...
FAILED (remote: unknown command)
finished. total time: 0.516s
I wonder if we need to put the phone into download mode for it to take the flash... Not sure how to get there. The old hold volume up and insert usb cable trick from the G4 isn't working for me.

Awesome, anyone else? Looks like they really did lock it.
fastboot flash returns unknown command
fastboot boot returns unknown command

It seems that attempting to send an unsigned boot image returns in unknown command. I'm assuming that's just a generic error code returned by qualcomm secure flash due to invalid signature, rather than the command actually being unknown. (maybe fastboot does not have "invalid signature" return codes?)
