The LG G4 has a lot to prove, given that last year’s LG G3 was among the best smartphones of 2014.

Desk Clock from Android 4.2 Available for All AOSP JB ROMs
Ever since Google revealed Andriod 4.2 on the 29th of October, many of us have been waiting to get our hands on the goodies introduced in the latest version of Android. Shortly after the announcement of the new Google Nexus 4 and Nexus 10, the goodies started rolling in. It started with the Android 4.2 keyboard, followed by the camera and gallery apps. Now that the Nexus 4 system dump is available, things are only getting started. The latest Android 4.2 app to join the early leaks club is the new Desk Clock and we’re in love with how it looks!

(Sorry, no ICS or earlier.)
For the download link and installation instructions, head over to the forum thread and give your Desk Clock app the revamped Android 4.2 look!
