PACman ROM Logo

PACman ROM seems to be on a roll. After making its way to popular devices including the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, MyTouch 4G Slide, Samsung  Galaxy S II, HTC Desire S and Desired HDT-Mobile Galaxy S III and HTC One S, the popularity of this blend of CyanogenMod, AOKP, and ParanoidAndroid seems to be increasing. The latest devices to join the PACman club are LG Optimus 3D and HTC Droid Incredible, getting fully working ports courtesy of XDA Senior Members berni987654321 and zachf714 respectively.

Downgrade the LG Optimus 3D to Gingerbread

ics-for-lg-optimus-3d

Leaks can be both good and bad. They give users and developers to a chance to check out what OEMs have in store for their devices. However, they can be fraught with danger, like the dreaded Atrix 2 ICS leak of 2012. Sometimes, it’s difficult to downgrade to a more stable previous release. This happened to the LG Optimus 3D, and there is now a fix.

XDA Senior Member berni987654321 released a method that helps get users safely back to Gingerbread. When flashing to ICS, it changes a few of the partitions and makes it difficult to flash back to Gingerbread. Here’s berni98765431’s explanation on how it was fixed:

LG P350 and Optimus 3D Receive CM10 Ports

cm10

If developers have proven anything since the release of Android 4.1, it’s that it can run on just about any device. Recently, two LG devices have gotten the port. The first is the LG Optimus 3D, which is a dual-core device. The other is the much older LG Optimus Me P350, with it’s 600 MHz single-core processor.

XDA Senior Member keyur2maru released the unofficial CM10 port for the Optimus Me P350. The Optimus 3D received an official release from the CM Team, announced by Ricardo Cerqueira. The thread is maintained by XDA Senior Member mivv.

Both ROMs work fairly well. The official release doesn’t have a working or not working list, but users are reporting some occasional network loss, some iss. . . READ ON »

ICS Ported to the LG Optimus 3D P920

LG3D P920

The ICS rush is, for the most part, over with thanks to Jelly Bean coming to our devices like flies on sugar. Manufacturers have kept, after tremendously long delays, their promise to update devices to the frozen treat. However, due to the long time they have taken in doing this, many have fled what people consider “sinking ships” of devices that are seemingly forgotten by their manufacturer. The LG Optimus 3D (P920) is one such device that, to this date, has yet to see an official ICS firmware update. Any and all attempts to port ICS to the device have been through the magic of AOSP-derived projects. However, just like with HTC’s EVO 3D, the use of the 3D feature is limited, if existent at all.

Optimus 3D Gets an Easier Root Method

LG-Optimus-3D-withlogo

Some of the best mods, hacks, and leaks have been hidden on websites that XDA members don’t usually go to. Thankfully in most cases, those methods do eventually make it to the XDA forums where everyone can enjoy it. Sometimes its something new, like a leak for a device, but sometimes it’s an easier way of doing something we already know how to do. One instance is a Russian website that’s been hiding a much easier way to root the LG Optimus HD.

Posted to XDA by Senior Member Eklovya, the method should bring an easier alternative to root methods already in place. It should also work on most variants of the Optimus 3D, including the LG Optimus 3D Max P720, LG Optimus 3D Max P725 AND LG Opitmus Cube SU870.

Remove Notification Tray Music Controls on the LG Optimus 3D

Remove LG Optimus 3D Music Controls Notification

If you have an LG Optimus 3D, you’ve surely noticed the music controls in your notifications bar. While those may come really handy for quickly controlling your music playback, they can be a waste of space if you don’t listen to music much or would prefer to use a different media player. Unfortunately, even uninstalling the stock music player doesn’t really remove these controls. That’s why XDA Member [Headcrash] has shared a method to get rid of these once and for all.

The hack involves extracting and decompiling your SystemUI.apk file. For those who don’t mind decompiling and recompiling APKs, the method is simple, clear, and straightforward.

Easy Root and More for the LG Optimus 3D

Optimus 3D

As devices are released, the first and foremost achievement to be gained is root. First root methods are often messy and include a lot of ADB commands and complicated procedures. As development for a phone evolves, so does the root method—one click methods come out, and eventually simple guides are written that allow even the newest users gain root, recovery, and get ready for their first ROM and kernel flashes.

The LG Optimus 3D now has one such guide courtesy of XDA Forum Member MANBEARPIG69. The guide helps users through the first root using the Optimus 3D’s easiest one-click root method, and then shows users how to install ClockworkMod Recovery using ROM Manager. Of course, th. . . READ ON »
