    Also opened up this thread for discussion.
    If there is something you see that should be added to this sticky, or perhaps be made a sticky itself, let me or another guide know and we can add it ;)

    Hello! I have an LG G3 on Boost Mobile and I was wondering if it's okay to flash ROMs made for the Sprint variant? Thanks in advance

    Unfortunately not. I'd say it should work though. Best of luck if you want to try it :)

    I have a couple questions and need some feedback. I have a LS990 from sprint. My old G3
    3 was destroyed and so I am now in the waiting phase to receive my new G3. I rooted and installed TWRP when I first received my G3 (one time) but its been well over a year. When I get my new G3, I would like to install TWRP and have it rooted like my last one. I just want to confirm from what I read in the OP in the link below, one of the methods will root and install bumped twrp at the same time? I'm not sure when I receive my new phone whether it will have lollipop 5.0 or 5.1, does that make a difference? If it does install twrp, will it be the latest version? Thanks again for the feedback, I would like to be ready to get this done when my phone arrives.

    This is the link I found, would this method work in rooting and installing twrp?
