INSTALLING TWRP on LG G2 (VZW, AT&T, TMobile, KT, d802, others)

I do not now why I am posting about LG G2 a lot. So here’s one of those posts about LG G2, I hope it helps you.

TOOK THE OTA AND GOT STUCK IN RECOVERY LOOP? DERP, DONT TAKE OTAS, DUH. ANYWAYS, IF YOU CAN’T GET INTO DOWNLOAD MODE AFTER OTA, DO THIS…!!

GUIDE 

First off, if you have issues with ADB not connecting, try THESE DRIVERS 
The install is super simple, and you have two or 3 options.
Download the img for your device:
AT&T IMG DOWNLOAD THE NEWEST VERSION ONLY!!! as of writing that is 2.6.3.3
Verizon IMG DOWNLOAD THE NEWEST VERSION ONLY!!! as of writing that is 2.6.3.3
TMobile IMG DOWNLOAD THE NEWEST VERSION ONLY!!! as of writing that is 2.6.3.3
Korean Telecom IMG DOWNLOAD THE NEWEST VERSION ONLY!!! as of writing that is 2.6.3.3
d802 IMG DOWNLOAD THE NEWEST VERSION ONLY!!! as of writing that is 2.6.3.3
For other models, click HERE and scroll down to find the files beginning with d2, and see if any of the folders sound like your model.
NOTE FOR THESE DOWNLOADS! READ ME! UPDATE! Ok, so if you look in the download page for your device and you are getting a zip file, this is a flashable zip, but it cannot be treated the same as an IMG file in this guide. You need to flash an older one that is a .img file, and then use that to flash the newer zip.
YOU MUST ALREADY BE ROOTED! follow This guide to do so if you aren’t. BE AWARE THAT THIS ROOTING METHOD ONLY WORKS BEFORE TAKING THE OTA. IF YOU ARE UPDATED AND UNABLE TO ROOT, FOR NOW THE ONLY WAY IS TO FLASH BACK TO STOCK AND ROOT BEFORE THE OTA, THEN TAKE THE OTA, THEN INSTALL TWRP

NOTE THAT ALL GUIDES BELOW ARE REFERENCING THE VZW img file. Be sure to replace it with whatever version you downloaded!
ABSOLUTELY DO NOT FLASH ANYTHING NOT MADE FOR YOU PHONE SPECIFICALLY!

So Here it Begins!
OPTION 1 *RECOMMENDED* The way I tested it in #lg-g2 Possibly safer as loki runs some safety checks first. Download loki from github here Click download zip on the right. and go into the bin folder of the zip. push loki flash and the img like so:

Code:
adb push loki_flash /data/local/tmp/loki_flash

adb push openrecovery-twrp-2.6.3.2-g2vzw.img /data/local/tmp/openrecovery-twrp-2.6.3.2-g2vzw.img

adb shell
(IF YOU DONT SEE A # prompt, type su to get it.)
cd /data/local/tmp

chmod 777 loki_flash

./loki_flash recovery /data/local/tmp/openrecovery-twrp-2.6.3.2-g2vzw.img

exit

adb reboot recovery

————————————————————————————-

OPTION 2 via dd. Push just the recovery img like this:

Code:
adb push openrecovery-twrp-2.6.3.2-g2vzw.img /data/local/tmp/openrecovery-twrp-2.6.3.2-g2vzw.img

adb shell
(IF YOU DONT SEE A # prompt, type su to get it.)
cd /data/local/tmp

dd if=/data/local/tmp/openrecovery-twrp-2.6.3.2-g2vzw.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery

exit

adb reboot recovery

——————————————–

OPTION 3 easy, untested (as of time of writing) install it from goomanager on the phone! This aparantly does work bu you have to manually browse to the file or something… anyone who’s tried care to clarify?
I tried and cant figure out where you find the recovery. I recommend Option 1 or 2
———————————————-

*Be Sure to Comment if any link’s not working.*

Troubleshooting:
If you get “Failed to open aboot for reading.” when following method 1, Be sure you have the # prompt, not $. If you rooted properly you should alutomatically have # in shell, but if not just type su to get it. then run the flashing command.

If you had confusion based on the pushing steps because the two img names listed in the command were different, my bad. the filenames changed while I was writing from test version to final, I missed replacing the first name in the commands. Look at the post again as it is fixed now.

If adb reboot doesnt work, make sure that “exit” command fully exited you out of the adb shell prompt. you should be at standard command prompt for that. type exit again if you arent, or heck just open a new command prompt.
