The stock recovery of LG Aristo only helps in doing a Factory Reset. It does nothing else. When we replace it with a custom recovery i.e TWRP we get to do a hell lot more. Thanks to messi2050@ androidforums for making this twrp file for LG Aristo.
The 3 major uses of TWRP are –
- Rooting – In case of LG Aristo, we can root the device by flashing Superuser or Magisk via TWRP.
- Flashing a Custom ROM – There is no custom ROM for LG Aristo as of now but we may get it in the near future.
- Creating a Nandroid backup – The most useful feature of TWRP is Nandroid backup. It is a complete backup of the system including apps, text, contacts, email etc. In short, it restores the phone back to the exact same state as before. If you mess with your phone it’ll come in handy.
