LG G Pad 7.0’s high end specifications make it a great tablet device to play with. We have got this device powered up with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 400 Quad Core CPU clocked at 1.2 GHz accompanied by a RAM of 1 GB and 8 GB internal storage. A 3.5 MP camera is fixed at the back and a 1.3 MP camera shooter is fixed on the front of a 7.0 inch IPS display with 216 ppi. Under the hood we’ve got a huge 4000 mAh battery and the device can be found running on Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box. If you happen to be a lucky G Pad 7.0 owner and you also happen to be an Android power user, you would definitely love to explore the vast world of Android where no limits can be found. A very good way to test your device is by tweaking it at a maximum level, for this purpose you may take a start by flashing small tweaks, MODs, different customisations and obviously, a plethora of a custom ROMs that is available for this device out there. But to pave a way for all the customisations on your device, you need root access and then a custom recovery. You will be wondering about both these things right now, but let us move forward and you’re going to understand all.
Root access on your G Pad 7.0 will allow you to explore the root directory of your device and load root required applications to enhance the capabilites of your device, while a custom recovery can do the similar from the boot menu of your device. It will simply allow you to flash tweaks, MODs, custom ROMs and the most important part, it will allow you to create or restore Nandroid backup. You can also wipe cache and dalvik cache, a number of other features is there to try out. When it comes to custom recoveries, there are only two big names CWM and TWRP, and when it comes to pick up the best one, I personally love to go with TWRP since it has a great and easy to use UI. Luckily, latest version of TWRP, TWRP 22.214.171.124 is now available for LG G Pad 7.0 V400 & V410. In this guide, we will flash this latest TWRP 126.96.36.199 on the LG G Pad 7.0.
