Implement Split View in Your LG G2 KitKat Rom with Automated Installer
Some of you may have remembered a story on the Portal a few weeks back about a great tutorial on implementing the Split View feature into your own LG G2 KitKat ROM. Although welcomed by the LG G2 community, it wasn’t a very efficient solution as it required a ROM to be modified accordingly every time you have a fresh ROM installed, and it could only be undertaken by those who know their way around smali and baksmali editing.
XDA Forum Member GrAndAG has developed an automated installer of said mod that may provide an alternative method for those who may not be able to complete the tutorial. Based on the aforementioned tutorial and mod, the installer comes in the form of an APK, which once installed and running, automatically implements the Split View mod into your ROM. Because the installer handles the entire process–including the disassembling, patching, assembling, installing, and the odexing–all you need to do is press the ‘Create MOD’ button and wait for about 15 minutes or so for the installer to work its magic.
So if you haven’t had the time to go through the tutorial itself but would still like Split View on your LG G2, be sure to check out the Split View installer thread for more information.

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
This month was a big one for Android 5.1.1 updates, as you can see from last week's roundup and the barrage of posts on the portal's front page in the recent past. So far we are seeing the lineup of Wear watches, the Nexus 4, Nexus 9, Nexus 10, Nexus Player, and a handfull of others slowly make their way to the latest Android. While waiting around for updates may be fine for casual users, this is XDA; we have OTA download links...
