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

A lot of the time, the applications' source code isn't even available, so how does it all work? We'll see that first, then take a look at a new tool that aims to make the process much easier, and finally compare it to the popular Xposed framework to see how they...
