LG Nitro HD Gets Lightning Zap Script with Various Tweaks

LG Nitro

Not every Android device is everything it could be. If they were, we would have barely any reason to hack and modify them. There is always a little more performance that can be squeezed out and a little more battery life to attain. Most of the time these tweaks are added to ROMs, but in many cases there are also scripts to help get the job done. The LG Nitro HD has a new script that will help add performance and battery life.

Posted to XDA by Senior Member thomas.raines, the script goes by the name of Lightning Zap. It promises to bring increased performance across the board for LG Nitro HD users as well as improved battery life. The full list of features include:

Unbrick Guide for Soft Bricks on the LG Nitro HD

LG Nitro HD

There aren’t many things in the world of Android that can inspire more fear than a bricked device. And for inexperienced users, soft bricked devices can be just as scary as actual hard bricked ones. And even if not explicitly scary, seeing the boot animation repeat itself over and over again or not going past the splash screen can be quite frustrating.

Usually troubleshoot is the same for everything: either flash a new ROM or restore a Nandroid backup in recovery. However, there can be complications, especially if one doesn’t make a Nandroid backup and doesn’t have a fresh ROM handy on their SD card. This is a problem that can be easily fixed on the LG Nitro HD. XDA Senior Member mattman86. . . READ ON »

Unbrick Your LG Nitro HD

LG Nitro HD

Simply put, bricking your device sucks. There is nothing quite like that gut-wrenching feeling when you hit the power button and the device just doesn’t turn on. It’s like being on a horrible roller coaster in a theme park called You’re Screwed, and leaving there can be a pain. However, for a lot of devices, there are fail safes. Many Samsung devices have their USB jigs, HTC devices can fix themselves as long as you can get into HBoot, and so on. The LG Nitro HD has now joined the club of devices that can, in fact, unbrick.

CWM and De-Odexed System Partition for the LG Nitro HD

ATT-LG-Nitro-HD

Not too long ago, we added the LG Nitro HD to our forums. This was done with good reason, as LG’s LTE-enabled, 720p-capable, and dual core-toting beast is one of the most appetizing devices available for AT&T—at least until the Galaxy Nexus (possibly) arrives for the carrier. Now, all we need is some development activity to back up the great hardware.

Kicking open the doors for development activity, XDA forum member bytecode64 successfully ported ClockworkMod 5 Recovery to the device. Next, the Nitro HD had its /system partition de-odexed thanks to XDA forum member kernelpan1c, making it easier for ROM developers and themers to create the modifications they do best.
