A few months have passed since the LG G2 started receiving its update to Android 4.4.2 KitKat, and with it, G2 owners have been enjoying some new features and benefits. Unfortunately, the one of the most standout features seen in other LG devices, Split View, didn’t quite make it into this update. No need to panic, however. Those who have gotten used to the feature on the G2 previously thanks to a port from the G Flex can now enjoy it once again because XDA Senior Member xdabbeb has written a tutorial on how to get it back.
Written specifically to work on the G2, xdabbeb’s tutorial enables you to implement Split View into a ROM that’s based on the official KitKat firmware. In order to do this, you’ll need to know your way around smali and baksmali, and know how to make minor Dalvik and smali edits. Other than that, all you need to do is follow the steps provided and you should be well on your way. To help you get started, xdabbeb has also provided handy ZIP packages with all the files you will need during the process.
So if you’re a ROM developer who’s looking to implement Split View into your ROM, be sure to head over to the original thread to check out the tutorial._________
