Download LG Optimus G Pro PhilZ recovery, a good TWRP/CWM alternative

LG Optimus G Pro F240 Philz Recovery

TWRP recovery is our favorite, but there is lot to like about the Philz recovery too, also called advanced version of CWM recovery. Usually, you don’t find Philz available for every device, though it is available for many devices, but unlike TWRP, it’s hard to expect the Philz recovery to be available first of all. Gladly though, Philz recovery is available for LG Optimus G Pro, Korean edition, model no. F240, running Android 4.4 KitKat. Btw, you need root access for this, so first make sure of that first!

You get lots of customization options with Philz recovery. It allows you to change the strength of vibration in the recovery, and takes screenshots, and also decide on the way you wanna you use the recovery, whether that be buttons-only mode, touch only mode, or a mix of them both. You can even decide the presentation of things, rows height for example. Version 6.57.9 of PhilZ recovery is available for LG G Pro F240, and it’s very easy to install because it’s available in APK file.
