Part 2: How to install TWRP on LG K10

TWRP would be the best option available for custom recovery on LG K10. You can install TWRP Recovery in LG K10 device and root the device afterwards to make modifications in it. TWRP can be used by Android users to directly flash a zip file to the Android device where the files could be custom ROMs, MODs, rooting scripts, etc. This also helps in taking the whole device backup at any moment i.e. nandroid backup. TWRP custom Recovery is also used to run rooting scripts or even install SuperSU in the Android device.

In order to install TWRP Recovery on the device, simply follow steps given below:

Step 1. Make sure that you have installed ADB and fastboot on the computer. It is imperative to have the ADB and fastboot already installed on the computer.

Now, place the twrp.img file you have already downloaded in the folder named “Adb & Fastboot” on the computer you are using.

Step 2. Now, open the command prompt within the ADB & Fastboot folder by using Shift + Right click anywhere inside the folder and choosing “Open Command Window” as shown in the picture below.

Step 3. Once the command prompt window is open, have the LG K10 device connected to the computer to execute the command “adb reboot bootloader”, as shown in the picture below:

adb reboot bootloader

Now choose “OK” to allow USB debugging on the LG device for it to be properly connected to the computer. Having the “USB debugging” mode enabled on the LG device prior to this process is always better.

Step 4. The LG device will work in bootloader mode now. Execute the command “fastboot flash recovery twrp.img” to flash the TWRP. img file now.

Use the twrp.img name (name of the file downloaded earlier by you) in the command. Once the TWRP is fully flashed on the LG K10 device, reboot the device using the command “fastboot reboot” as shown in the image given below:

fastboot reboot

This will take few seconds before the TWRP custom Recovery is fully flashed on the device.

Here’s how you can install SuperSU and root LG K10 device using TWRP Recovery:

Step 1. First of all, download the SuperSU. Zip file from internet. This file contains the SuperSU app along with the binaries required to get root access of the Android device.

Step 4. In TWRP Recovery, click the “INSTALL” menu and then browse for the SuperSU.zip file earlier placed in the internal storage. Select the SuperSU.zip file.

Step 5. Swipe to confirm and install SuperSU at the bottom of the screen to initiate flashing.

Once the installation of SuperSU is complete, reboot their device. Choose the “Reboot System” option presented to you to reboot the device. The device will reboot normally in some time.

While the rooting process can be very smooth and simple, what’s important is to understand the complications associated with it, when the rooting process is done without proper prior precautions.

After you have installed TWRP custom Recovery on the Android device, perform a nandroid backup which creates an image of the system. The nandroid backup is a complete backup which can help in case you lose out on any data.
