÷ Step by Step to Safely Root LG V20.
1- Step by Step Guide to Safely Install TWRP Recovery on LG V20.
2- Download and transfer the SuperSU V2.78 zip file from the download link above to your LG V20.
3- Connect your phone to the PC and open a command window on PC.
4- Issue the following command on the PC to boot your LG V20 into TWRP recovery:
adb reboot recovery
5- Once in TWRP recovery, tap on Install and select the SuperSU zip file that you transferred to your phone in Step 1 above.
6- After selecting the .zip file, slide you finger on the Swipe to Confirm Flash button on screen to begin the flashing process.
└ This will install SuperSU and patch boot image to not force encrypt your LG V20 on boot. But since your device is already encrypted, you need to format Data once to decrypt it. If you do not want to decrypt though, then skip Step 6th and 7th below.
7- Once SuperSU is flashed, go back to TWRP main menu » select Wipe » Advanced Wipe » tap on Data and then slide your finger on the Swipe to Wipe button.
└ This will decrypt your LG V20 and DELETE all data on the device.
8- Since we wiped the device in the step above to decrypt it, you need to flash the SuperSU zip once again (follow Step 4th and 5th again).
9- Once done, go to TWRP main screen » select Reboot » select System.
That’s all. Your LG V20 is now rooted and decrypted. To verify, download Root checker app from the Play store.
