    I haven't tested the backup/restore/wipe functions yet but it installed fine & everything else seems to work.

    Mine seems to be boot lopping now after a reboot, may have to use download mode to restore it

    OTG, for twrp is the USB storage. But if it works in CM 12.1, then badass. Now I have less of a reason to trade up

    This is great! I'm glad my OTG patch is sparking some more development for the LG Volt. I still cannot believe it was such a dead simple fix, I wonder why LG left in all the code required for OTG but then deliberately turned it off in the DTS (Device Tree Source) file. During all my research into this usually the device has hardware support but lacks most of the code to turn on OTG, requiring a lot of code changes and add ins to enable.

    EDIT: v3.0.0 with OTG appears to work great here.

    Is it possible to flash twrp through twrp itself? The system UI is crashing at startup because of some setting I had changed in the blisspop display options and for some reason my current twrp is failing at backing up /data and gives me an E:createTarFork() process ended with ERROR=255
    Sadly I don't have a recent backup


    Edit: it worked Fine
    Thank badmofo for the update

    I flashed a new kernel and I cannot be sure if it's something I flashed but now TWRP is in a boot loop. It boots to the TWRP loading logo, blanks, flashes backlight twice, then reloads the logo. Anything I should test for before I try to recover through "download mode"?

    @Bad_MOFO_33 Ok I was able to recover my boot loop hell because somehow I could still get a shell with "adb shell" in TWRP v3.0.0 although it was looping it's load screen. I flashed the old v2.8.7.0 with OTG you gave me via the following command below. My bad kernel flash (I changed code I should not have) cause a bug or something to boot loop with v3.0.0. Not sure what to do from here, never had to debug a recovery so I dunno how.

    dd if=/sdcard/TWRP_OTG.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p17

    EDIT: My code change was different from the OTG change I made earlier. I was trying to get OTG plus charging working, the ACA Y cable. For whatever reason this change took out battery support, the device boots to the lock screen with a red X in the battery icon in the corner then goes to power off as if the battery was dead. My theory is that some value gets stored so when recovery loads it still believes the battery isn't there (or some bug). v2.8.7.0 doesn't react in this same manner, I just tested that fact with my faulty kernel change, it powers off but I'm still able to boot into recovery with v2.8.7.0. Could be some ultra rare bug no one will trigger normally but I'm really not sure.
