To boot in TWRP –

Press the volume down and power button. As soon as LG logo appears on the screen temporarily release the power key and hold it back again. Make sure you don’t release the volume down key in the entire process.

Now use volume down key to move down to “Yes” and select power key to confirm this action

Again use volume down to move to “Yes” and confirm with Power Key.

As the bootloader is locked you’ll see this warning screen it’s normal. Press Power key to continue

For the first time when you boot in TWRP, it’ll ask for the password, click on “cancel”.

Agree to keep the system partition read-only by swiping the bar towards the right as shown above.

Now we’re in TWRP but there’s a need to flash “no-verity-opt-encrypt-5.1.zip” file otherwise, the custom recovery will be replaced with stock recovery in the next reboot.

To do this first click on “Wipe” as shown above

Now click on “Format Data”

Type yes and click on the “tick mark” to start formatting.

Now go back to the first TWRP screen.

Before clicking on Mount, as shown above, we’ve to transfer the no-verity-opt-encrypt-5.1.zip file to the sd card.

Download the file from below link and transfer it to a micro sd card.

You can also download the file to Phone’s Internal Memory.


Insert the micro sd card in your LG Aristo

Now click on “Mount”

“Tick” MicroSD to mount it.

Now go back again to the first TWRP screen and click on “Install”

Select “sdcard1” and locate the downloaded zip file i.e no-verity-opt-encrypt-5.1.zip

NOTE: If you’ve downloaded the file to Internal/Phone memory you’ll find it in “sdcard” folder, a folder just above “sdcard1” as visible in 2nd screenshot above.

Click on the file “no-verity-opt-encrypt-5.1.zip” to install it

To confirm installation, slide the bar towards the right.

Now we’ve successfully installed TWRP. As we’ve flashed no-verity.zip file the custom recovery won’t get erased on booting the phone in recovery mode.

Now that the custom recovery is installed rooting is just a one-click process. Follow the next tutorial to root your LG Aristo.

  1. Hey, I’ve gotten to the step where you have to hold down the volume key and select yes. However when I select yes, it shows the metro logo and goes right into the factory reset process again. TWRP hasn’t showed up at all yet. Every step so far has been followed correctly.

  2. I unlocked the bootloader and uploaded the recovery.img successfully but after removing battery phone is not entering TWRP mode .I followed the procedure but it always goes to factory reset not TWRP mode.
    Any idea please share .You can kindly contact me WhatsApp +2209965540

  3. I’ve made it to the third screen shot at the TWRP screen requesting a password for which I should click on “cancel”. However, the touchscreen is unresponsive. All I can do is use the power button to turn the display on/off. I can’t even power off unless I take out the battery. If I reboot normally the touch screen works fine. Is this because I am attempting this on the LG Aristo 2 LM-X210MA?

  4. I got an error message saying cannot determine image filename for ‘recovery.img’ what did I do wrong? Can anybody help?

  5. ive done all steps until 2nd page when i go to hold and restart it sometimes brings me to that white page asking to factory reset . it wont takae me to next part after idk what to do

  6. Hi. Thanks for the tuto. How or when can I send the no-verity.zip file to the internal memory without erase it with the process in the previous page?? My micro sd port is broken so I’m forced to use the internal memory

    • Use adb sideload command for this…

      this way you dont need to store the ZIP file anywhere in the phone.

      use command: adb sideload [c:\path_to_zip_file]\zipfile.zip

      in TWRP, select the Advanced Tab, then the Sideload function
