Brief information and benefits of TWRP recovery
The TWRP (Team Win Recovery Project) is an open source community development project. With the flashing TWRP your device can install any firmware, start your smartphone, change zip files for settings, Xposed modules for settings, root and unroot processes in one click. You can also make a full backup of Nandroid and restore it later, flash the image file with a single click, remove bloatware, overclock and underclock. The TWRP allows you to easily erase, cache and delete data after flashing an image file to display changes and correct minor errors caused by caching.
To install TWRP, your LG Velvet 5G LM-G900EM phone must have an unlocked starter charger. This means that you first need to unlock the bootloader to install the root of the device, as well as to perform any configuration.

It is therefore in the user’s interest to follow the instructions very carefully in order to avoid any incident with your device.
Installing a custom ROM firmware and flashing it will definitely void your device’s warranty and AndroidWeblog.com cannot be held responsible for invalid warranties or limited devices.

Your phone should be at least 70% charged or you may experience complications during the experiment. Don’t take any risks and load them up completely.
If you’re installing a root of your phone or a custom ROM, it’s good practice to back up your phone. Back up all your media such as photos, videos and everything else on your PC and your contacts in the cloud.

Steps to flash/install TWRP 3.4.0 recovery on LG Velvet 5G LM-G900EM
Step one: Suppose you have already downloaded the platform tools from the Android SDK (SDK Manager) to your PC. The platform tools include the required ADB binaries and fast downloads.
Step two: Make sure the drivers are installed on your computer. Then proceed to the next step.
Pay attention: If the development settings and USB debug settings are already enabled on your device, as suggested in the Benefits section, just skip steps 3 and 4 and go directly to step 5.
Step three: Now enable the development settings on your LG Velvet 5G LM-G900EM device. To do this, go to Settings -> About and find the construction number, then click 7 times on the construction number, which will activate the development settings on your device.
Step four: If you already have a USB debug, skip this step. Otherwise, open the developer settings and enable the USB debugging option.
Step five: Now open a command prompt on the computer/ADB terminal and just type the command :
Step six: The unit must not be switched to Quick Start mode. Now copy the downloaded TWRP.img file in the mandatory section to the same directory where the ADB and rapidboot binaries are located. Rename the file to twrp.img and enter this command:
Quick start flash recovery twrp.img
then execute this command, enter:
Step 7 (important) : Some devices may not automatically replace the customized recovery upon initial start-up. You can perform a shortcut on Google to put the device in recovery mode. After executing the quick start commands, press and hold the appropriate key combination to enter TWRP mode. Once the unit is started in TWRP mode, the stock ROM is automatically patched by TWRP to prevent TWRP from being overwritten by a stock recovery.

How to install LG Velvet 5G LM-G900EM/install Magisk or SuperSU
Make sure you have downloaded SuperSU or Magisk Manager (link in the required section of this article). Then go through the steps.
Attention: You can use Magisk Manager or Super SU, but only one, so choose well. If you’re not sure, go to Magisk Manager.
Step one: Move the downloaded SuperSU or Magisk Manager file to the internal memory / SD card of the LG Velvet 5G LM-G900EM smartphone.
Step two: Now all we have to do is start the recovery. You can also back up the ROM via the TWRP interface. However, I recommend making a backup copy of the ROM. Because if the process fails, you can make the ROM blink.
Step three: Press Install and then navigate to SuperSU.zip or magisk.zip and drag the firmware confirmation file (at the bottom of the screen). The Magisk/SuperSU flash process has started and will take a few seconds.
