The LG G3 is truly a flagship device in all senses of the term. It’s stylish and elegant, and the Korean manufacturer spared no cost on the specs and hardware. That is why we like it so much. And the software – well, we think LG does one of the best versions of tweaked Android out there, bar none. One small issue may be that the LG G3 comes with a locked bootloader, hence custom ROMs used to be close to impossible to install. Not anymore.
The LG G3 was finally rooted in August, and just recently, another group of XDA developers have now provided for us a modified TWRP recovery that should enable users to flash custom ROMs. The project is dubbed as “Bump!”, and what it does is take advantage of the same vulnerability that the initial root used to be able to flash modified images.
The process is still a bit roundabout, maybe even a tad bit complicated, for non-savvy users. But for those who are comfortable around tweaking their devices, this should be pretty straightforward. The process requires that your LG G3 must be rooted, firstly. Then you need to copy the modified recovery image onto the internal storage of your device, then run a few commands to flash the image to your phone’s firmware. After that, it is just a matter of booting into the TWRP recovery.
