POSTS TAGGED: LG G2
Posted September 19, 2014 at 01:00 pm by Will Verduzco
Over the last few weeks, we’ve seen quite a few flagship (and former flagship) devices get to enjoy multiboot goodness. And as can be expected, the vast majority of these come in the form of unofficial ports of XDA Recognized Developer Tasssadar‘s popular MultiROM multiboot solution. Now, we can add one more notch to MultiROM’s metaphorical belt, as the LG G2 has just been added to the list of (unofficially) compatible devices.
This unofficial MultiROM port comes courtesy of XDA Senior Member patrik.KT, who brought Tasssadar’s multiboot solution to the LG G2. This implementation works on both the D805/6 and D802 models, as well as LGD and JDI panels, but there . . . READ ON »

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, auto. . . READ ON »

OEMs have been coming out with some pretty innovative cases and folios for their devices recently, two of which being the the LG G2 QuickWindow case and the LG G3 QuickCircle case. Both cases feature a screen, which when connected to their respective devices, display a range of handy information that you can quickly glance at without having to go through the actual phone. However, because they’re two entirely separate accessories, the apps they run are not interchangeable between the two.
Wanting to get a taste of LG G3 QuickCircle apps on the G2, XDA Forum Member Ashrockr managed to port some of the LG G3 QuickCircle apps to the LG G2 QuickWindow case. The ported apps include the:

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, y. . . READ ON »

The LG G2 was always destined to have a difficult time thanks to sibling rivalry with the very similar Nexus 5, which was released shortly after the G2. Unsurprisingly, many consumers opted to wait for the Nexus-branded device over over the G2, despite the latter’s slightly better specifications. Despite this, many have chosen the G2, and it has amassed a loyal fanbase and development community.
One such G2 user, XDA Recognized Developer dr87, recently received a few requests for help from others in the community regarding the process of updating their custom ROMs to make full use of the 4.4.2 Android sources. In response, he posted some useful information that should help othe. . . READ ON »

Over the last few months, we’ve seen Android 4.4 KitKat roll out first to the Korean variant of the LG G2, and then to various US carrier devices such as Sprint’s, AT&T’s and T-Mobile’s. Many were left wondering when the Verizon LG G2 would get its turn. Then just about two weeks ago, a leaked build appeared for the Verizon variant. But now, the update is finally here in official form, though it isn’t quite as easy as a standard OTA update.
Just like we saw in the T-Mobile update, the Verizon model’s update is not yet available as an incremental OTA update. Rather, it is currently available in the form of a 2 GB complete installation can be installed directl. . . READ ON »

Although it’s nearing its first birthday, the LG G2 is still a very high end, flagship-level device. As such, it has been shown some official KitKat OTA love in various regions, starting all the way back in November of last year for the Korean version! But while T-Mobile, AT&T, and Sprint variants of the G2 have all received their official 4.4.2 OTAs, the Verizon model has apparently been left out in the cold.
No, unfortunately an official Android 4.4 OTA for the Verizon LG G2 is still not here. However, we at least have a very highly functioning leak. And now thanks to XDA Senior Member xdabbeb, who describes the process in great detail, you can install it on your own Verizon LG G2.

Right at the tail end of 2013, the Korean version of the LG G2 started receiving its official OTA update to Android 4.4 KitKat. After that, we knew it was only a matter of time before the update would make its way to carrier-branded variants of the device. About two months later, we saw the update appear on the AT&T version of the G2, which was promptly followed by the T-Mobile variant. Then five days ago, the update appeared on various Canadian carriers. Now, the update has arrived for the Sprint LG G2.
The OTA comes in the form of a 618 MB incremental update from firmware version ZVA to ZVC—though Sprint decided to “rename” the update to ZVB in its provided literature. Aside from upping the A. . . READ ON »

The LG G2 offers some pretty nice camera performance out of the box. Thanks to its 13MP sensor and optical image stabilization, both pictures and 1080p video come out crisp and clean. However, this is XDA and we don’t ever settle for what’s given to us by the OEMs. Instead, we tweak and modify our devices to make them as good as they can possibly be.
XDA Senior Member xdabbeb recently created a handy mod for the LG G2 that gives it substantially improved camera capabilities. The stock camera application available for the device allows it to take 1080p video at 60 fps. But with xdabbeb’s mod, you can now capture 4k Ultra HD video at 30 fps or standard 720p video at 120 fps. In addition, this mo. . . READ ON »
