Hi all!

We're back again, and have something great to post for everyone!


What is this?

Glad you asked!
This is a followup to Stump ( ) that allows you to flash Bump'd boot images to your LG G3.

But wait? I thought you said this is an unlock?!
It is! You can flash anything that's been Bump'd, and Bump'ing a boot image is easy to do, and I'll put a post on XDA on how to do that in a week or so once I have all the details finalized.
Most ROMs you'll want to download will be pre-Bump'd, so as an end user there's nothing you need to worry about.

Is this similar to Loki?
No, you will not need to ensure your firmware version matches exactly with the ROM you have. You will only need to make sure that the ROM you downloaded is compatible with your carrier.

What carriers is this compatible with?
This is compatible with all LG G3 variants. Look for a post in your XDA subforum with Bump to download. If the download link does not have your model in it (i.e. for ATT you'd download a D850 image), then make sure you're downloading from the correct forum post.


How do I use this?


  • You must be rooted for this to work! Any root method that works for your device will work.
  • A working ADB installation and familiarity with it. This thread is NOT the place to post questions about how to install/use ADB. Posts asking such questions will be deleted.

  1. Download the file linked below to your computer
  2. Set your phone to Ethernet (needed for VZW!) mode, and copy the downloaded file to your phone's INTERNAL SD Card
  3. Open a command prompt window on your computer, and run these commands one at a time (YOU WILL GET AN 'out of space' ERROR ON THE ZERO PART, IGNORE IT!) - copy and paste them if you must :
    adb shell
    dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery
    dd if=/sdcard/twrp- of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery

Easy, right? You can now get into recovery as follows:
  1. Power off the phone, and unplug USB
  2. Hold Volume Down + Power
  3. Continue holding both Volume Down and Power until you see the LG logo, then the "System Recovery" screen (if you have Bump installed, it won't erase your data, don't worry!) This is different for VZW, no need to release power button!
  4. Press Volume Down and then power to select "Factory Data Reset"
  5. Press Volume Down, then Power to confirm
  6. Congrats!

Thanks for this guys. Cannot wait to see what this phone is capable of. Donation will definitely be coming from me when i have some time in front of a PC. Been moving, so all my time is already allocated for me by my wife. Thanks again. Never lost hope.
