    It is built from source for the LG Ultimate 2
    It is a newer version of TWRP built on cm12 sources
    It has the screen timeout completely disabled

    However it still works as the old version right, so if in the near future cm12 comes, will I have to use this or can I use the existing one I have

    I can't assure you that either of them work for anything since I don't own this device. If this one has any problems doing what is intended, I can fix it since it is built from source.

    Hold the power button + volume down button until the LG image appears. Once it does let go of the buttons then immediately push and hold them again until recovery boots.
    NOTE: The method above will arrive at the "hard reset" area, but when choosing hard reset, it will take you to TWRP (without actually resetting).

    With regards to your question, mine is still bricked beyond repair. Unfortunately, this version of twrp came out a little too late, and it might have been a different story.
