The LG V10 is a premium phone with lots of exciting features. Some of the most absorbing features are the second screen and two selfie shooters, both sitting immediately above it’s primary 5.7 inch Quad HD panel. The second is a 2.1 incher IPS panel that sits just above the main screen. Moreover, the device comes with some unbeatable specifications. It’s a power house from LG and has been one of the most sought after device for the tech reviewers across the globe.

Not many Android enthusiasts have access to this device for now. However, we already have the TWRP recovery available for this device and here we are with yet another tutorial for the V10. Now you can install the TWRP on your device in no time. The listed recovery file is compatible with H901 variant only.

Once you install a custom recovery, you can then flash the SuperSU package, in order to gain root access on your device. Before we begin you will need to unlock the bootloader on your device. We already have the guide available for that purpose. Moreover, you need to setup adb and fastboot environment on your PC for this guide. If you are new to this process, then we will help you successfully install a custom recovery and finally root your device.
