Re-Bloat Your LG Revolution With Stock App Installer

While being rooted and having a custom ROM with all kinds of goodies are great, some users prefer the stock feel of their Android devices and like how they felt right out of the box—bloatware and all. It is with this in mind that XDA Senior Member mtmichaelson created an application to re-install any stock app that was removed with Gingervolt on the LG Revolution.

The application is pretty simple to use, and should be a process everyone is familiar with. Download the .zip, extract it, connect the phone, and run the installer. From there, simply follow the step-by-step instructions in the installer. It should be noted that the installer is in .bat format, so for now it’s for Windows only.

There are a couple of drawbacks, however. You must be on the stock kernel that comes with Gingervolt or on mtmichaelson’s own kernel. Additionally, some of the applications aren’t too compatible with being deodexed, and may not work. As, make a backup before doing anything, just in case something goes wrong.

You can find the full instructions, download links, and further explanation in the original thread

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
