Android 10 updates are now underway for several devices, either officially or unofficially.

LG V30 is now getting the Android 9 Pie update

Despite LG pushed the fact that they had launched a software update center early last year, with many getting excited to finally receive quick updates for their LG devices. That didn't happen though, as devices have still consistently been slow to get updates to Android Pie. LG's mobile division has been losing hundreds of millions of...

[Update: US unlocked] An early Android 9 Pie beta also leaks for the LG V30

We've been focusing a lot on the many new features that are making their way to Android 10, but there are millions of devices that have yet to receive an update to Android 9 Pie yet. Back in April of this year, it was reported that the LG V30, LG V35, and LG V40 would...

LG V30, V35, and V40 are expected to get Android Pie within 3 months

Android Pie was publicly released all the way back in August of 2018 (exactly 242 days ago). Most major Android OEMs have since treated their flagships and mid-range devices with Android Pie, and some have even rolled out the updates to even cheaper devices. LG has been abysmal in this regard as their update plans...

Chrome OS Instant Tethering now supports 15 more Chromebooks and 30 more Android smartphones

Chromebooks are known for being lightweight and easy to use. This makes Chrome OS devices perfect for on-the-go computing.

Chrome OS has made this easy with a feature called Instant...

Enable DTS 3D Stereo sound on all LG V30 variants [Root]

There are a number of cases where an OEM is using hardware in their device but then goes in and uses the software to limit its capabilities. The enthusiast community here at XDA is well known for bypassing these restrictions, but then there's a case like LG. They have added (and even mentioned the addition...

Enable all lockscreen weather effects on the LG G7 and LG V30 [Root]

LG phones have a unique feature that displays weather effects on the lock screen of their smartphone. Most OEMs will just use a small icon next to the time or date, but LG takes things a step further and actually adds full visual effects to whatever lock screen image you have chosen. Over the years...

Google Camera with Night Sight ported to the LG G6, V20, V30, and V35

At the tail end of last month, we announced a dedicated forum for all of the Google Camera ports we had been seeing from the generous developer community. The forum has only been open for a couple of weeks so it looks a bit bare right now, but activity is picking up and some LG...

Enable Call Recording on the LG V30 running Android 8.0 Oreo [Root]

Call recording is a big feature for many people who routinely place calls for business purposes. It might be illegal in some places or require both parties to consent, which is why the feature isn't available on all devices. Luckily, some great devs were able to enable it for the LG V30 running Android 8.0...

T-Mobile LG V30 has been rooted, but the procedure is risky

LG Mobile has been losing millions of dollars every year and the way they are locking down certain carrier devices isn't helping them when it comes to the enthusiast crowd. Older LG devices sold at wireless carriers in the United States were locked down like normal, but the T-Mobile variants had bootloaders that were easy...
