I have AT&T and the setting is in a menu the carrier hid, I suspect it's the same on Verizon.
To get to it, download QuickShortcutMaker from Google Play, open and change the search to 'Normal Search' and search for Knock. One of the options that comes up will say Settings and KnockON under that. Click it and hit 'Try' (or Create if you want to make a desktop shortcut to the menu) and the option to turn off should be in that.
Mildly convoluted, but it works.
Thanks for the gold!
I use Textra! Way back when I had a jailbroken iPhone, I used the messenger app called biteSMS. These guys are the same developers. Quick reply, quick compose, send delay, emoji, and more!, and very clean and minimal.
There is also a root app that lets you pick and choose apps to allow in Multiwindow in a nice and easy UI instead of messing with the build prop.
1) get a canadian G4 and get a proper receipt so you can use your warranty. If you don't buy this phone with warranty you might need an insurance because there is a well known defect which can turn the phone into a expensive brick.
2) If you're not a clumsy person get a leather back and don't use a case. The phone feels great in the hand and looks way more sexy when not wrapped into some kind of condom
3) Don't get the QI charging stickers -> they raise the phone by ~0.5mm and lift the back a bit of the phone so that it's not flush with the camera anymore. I modded my brown leather back with one and couldn't stand it. A big waste of money for something you don't need.
4) Get spare chargers for the car / work and you're fine. The usage time varies but when you're not playing games and stuff you can easily get 3 hours SOT over 1 day of usage
5) Here your cable amazon link
Textra is also another fantastic alternative. It's free with unobtrusive ads, but is well worth the $1 for its functionality. Scheduled texts, bruh.
I thought this was worth sharing here for those who don't keep in the loop on XDA.
As you'll probably be aware, camera's on AOSP ROM's are mostly always a bit crap due to locked down propriatary drivers and apps like the G4's. However Codeworkx who is the person solely dealing with the G4's official CM branch recently started working on a modified version of Qualcomms Snapdragon Camera App to better take advantage of the G4's awesome camera.
Laser focus and high ISO modes work and the picture quality is nearly as good as stock (IMO.) ~~Shutter speed and~~ RAW mode is basically the only thing missing now. ~~are yet to come, but looking at the git you can see codeworkx is already working away at shutter speed, so here's to hoping~~
Samples (these aren't my pictures, credit to IIIIkoolaidIIII on XDA)
Edit: Codeworkx recently posted the V6 update which includes shutter speed!
If you use this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=multitouchpro.tests
And try to touch the far left and right sides of the screen does it still not register? It's almost like LG put a buffer on the left and right sides that won't accept taps, it's kind of annoying in some cases. If you start the tap closer to the middle and drag outwards it'll register all the way to the edge of the screen so it can obviously read touch in that area -- it just won't read a tap.
On a side note which settings are you using on touch screen booster?
Edit: I see the settings screenshot now... Using the app does seem to make a difference but the far edges of the screen are still less responsive than I'd like. It's a really minor thing though I guess.
Edit 2: Still a couple missed taps. Don't remember ever having misses on my Note 2.
You can also use my app Key Plus to change the Volume Up double tap to toggle flashlight, launch any app or custom shortcut. Does not need root.
I use SwiftKey for every android I owned in the past 3 year. I can't do without the predictive ability of it especially for the right to left languages.
I have been using swiftkey since galaxy s2. I like it a lot more than other keyboards especially when i type 3 langaues on the keyboard
Could you please test my app Key Plus for LG? It is developed for phones with buttons on the back (G3, G2, G Pro 2, minis) and will let you customize the Volume button "press and hold" apps (QuickMemo+) when the screen is off. Works without root.
With the screen off:
You can also double tap certain empty areas (most notably the status bar) to turn the screen off.
I find that if you have bluetooth ON before you start the car, it connects automatically. If you forget to enable bluetooth before you start the car, you have to connect manually. It was the same case with my G3.
I also use an app called Bluetooth Connect & Play. It automatically starts your music player back up as soon as it senses a bluetooth connection to a pre-specified device. Works like a charm.
I'm pretty sure that's the Google Now Launcher. I think it's the default launcher in stock android, as it's what I've got on my old Nexus 5.
Try that out, see if it works for you.
If you'd like a free option, grab VLC: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.videolan.vlc&hl=en
It's well recognized as being able to play anything, do it well, and all while being open source.
ALSO, no adware, no ads. WIN WIN WIN WIN
I still rock a G4 to this day - bought a larger batter from amazon, and now I get 2 days out of the G4
Maybe this thread in which I also thought LOS was still maintained can give you some more information.
The LG G4 has been pretty much abandoned by everybody except the TWRP and AOSCP (CypherOS) guys. If you still want to use the phone, you should probably run AOSCP on it.
Afaik the only fix you need to apply yourself is a custom torch tile app link, because the default quicktile does not work. This and some bluetooth calling bug are the only things not working right, AFAIK. (Oh, and I think there was something wrong with Ambient Play, but I always had it disabled, so I not sure what this was about or if it has been fixed.)
As for what it means "mid-term":
You won't be able to run LOS 15.1, you won't receive device-specific (security and general) fixes anymore. If general LOS code will conflict with device-specific code there will be nobody to solve the conflict, so bugs could be introduced at some point.
Basically your phone won't become better at this point unless you switch to a different ROM (much like when the manufacturer abandones the phone and you don't switch to a maintained custom ROM).
Search the Play store for an app called Zedge. There are plenty of ringtones in that app and you can set them as notifications within the app.
Edit: Here is the link. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.zedge.android
Yes! It is called Ampere and is extremely useful.
When i tried it for the 1st time I got to the conclusion that my stock charger cable was able to deliver ~450mA while the cable from my powerbank went as high as 1100mA. Huge difference :)
apps designed for LG devices like Key Plus might be a good start.
The battery drain is pretty much the nature of the beast, however with root access there are a few tools available to help out with that although the results aren’t staggering. At least in my experience.
Just for a reference, most people seem to be getting avg 4-5 hours SOT with their devices here but of course ymmv.
You need to be rooted and use this app. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.dancingpixelstudios.sixaxiscontroller&hl=en
I use my Ps4 controller all the time with it and play games flawlessly on my G4.
If you try to just bluetooth pair it with the bluetooth menu and not the app the controller will start to input lag after 30 seconds.
Have you tried Nova Launcher? Or perhaps even the Google Now launcher? Personally I find Nova is the best option available, giving you plenty of control and customization options.

I contacted the uploader and introduced myself as the developer of Key Plus app which he featured in the video (Key Plus lets you toggle flashlight or launch any app/shortcut by holding Volume button, without root). Asked him about the settings he used on other phones to take the night shot. This was his reply:
>Awesome work on the app! It's the only 3rd party app that I thought was a necessity on the G4! I did adjust the other phones as much as the built in camera apps would let me. There were no shutter speed options on either the iPhone or S6 which was the main factor in getting a detailed night shot. Even with the ISO maxed out on the G4, the photos were just as dark as on the other two phones with a shutter speed under 10 seconds. It wasn't until about 20 seconds that I started to gather detail and brightness regardless of the ISO setting. I hope that info helps! And great job again on Key Plus!
Download the app Greenify.
Use that to disable any app on your phone, I use it for almost any app that i'm not regularly wanting notifications from, but that's just me.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nll.acr is working great on my lg g4 with marshmallow. No root. I'm using Verizon version. In the main menu, the second option helps adjust settings so recording works. It even works when using Bluetooth headset. Great cloud backup options too!
You can see how hot if gets using This mine has been up to 113.7°f in the last week. It feels like it's going into meltdown mode and drains battery like crazy.
Yes, In settings under Sound & Notification is Notification LED(tap the text, not the on/off switch) - You can change a few colours there otherwise a setting might be in the specific app you want to change.
You can config with this app - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.apptuners.keyplusapp (Not used it personally but others have commented so I saved it).
No, not with stock but I recommend Cinema 4k! Pretty awesome app for filming. It's free if you're ok with filming less than one minute per clip.
Try Screen off and Lock It will allow you to lock the screen by tapping on the app. If you use Nova Launcher you can set the app to open on double tap.
try what /u/Matech said and use root+DiskDigger, I just tried it and I’ve found pictures I deleted ages ago.
It really depends on how big your hand is. You can download a keyboard like the one I have SwiftKey and use compact mode like this pic. The curve kinda makes it easy to hold the phone. How about you go to a local store and hold the phone in your hand? Because I can use it with one hand but my hands are the size of a soccer goal keeper hands.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.baloota.dumpster Try this or undelete. But if those couldn't recover anything..... There is a thumbnail folder inside DICM that keeps most of your pictures I low resolution in there good luck.
A few things. You said "same network". I take that as same subnet mask. That doesn't really affect much with the wifi problem.
My guess is, your place has multiple AP with the same SSID. In case like this, the phone would try to stick to the original wifi it is connected to, until it can't even connect. There could be other AP that has stronger signal but the phone wouldn't switch. I believe it is due to design. Say you're downloading stuffs and moving. They don't want your download to be interrupted because some stronger wifi signal appear and the phone decide to switch over.
Now to fix it, try this Best WIFI app.
as far as I know you can't use quick toggles with a screen lock, but you can get to airplane mode by turning on the screen and doing a long press on the power button, and you can change what the shortcut key does for the top button with the Key Plus app, since nobody needs quick memo on its own special shortcut.
Alright so here's what I've found:
Stack Overflow thread ,maybe someone more savvy can explain what's going on there
Stack Exchange thread suggesting xposed/other modules that have this function but those require root
Nothing about changing it if you're unrooted however
yeah, but any quick charge 2.0 will do.
for example https://slickdeals.net/f/9237655-tronsmart-quick-charge-2-0-4-8a-dual-usb-wall-charger-2x-cables-8?src=SiteSearchV2_SearchBarV2Algo1
dual port for 8 bucks. you can charge both your phone and spare battery.

I put the metal piece you see on Amazon on the inside of my back cover. It works fine for me.
There are many better apps than the stock LG music player. I use this one for example. It's so much better and you can also see how many songs you have
Try installing OS Monitor, let it run, learn to use it to track apps that use lots of cpu time.
I've found that logd runs amok on my G4, root and remove logd from running all the time is the only solution I found. Setting the log size in developer mode to 64kb helped a bit unrooted. logd used about 21% if my battery daily, so I killed it.
Google logd lg g4 xda
It will even show you apps that make internet connections, even ones that start themselves & run in the background.
Might have found a solution. Those who are also suffering from battery drain caused by google service play, try downloading GserviceFix app.
The battery on my phone acts a lot better now and I didn't notice any negative effect on the phone after using the 'fix'. Also, after you're done, it's better to keep GPS disabled and use it only when you actually need it.
Give it a try, see if it helps you
There's a root method and a non-root method for this.
So first, root method involves grabbing App Ops off the Play Store and installing and granting root permissions for it to install.
If you don't have root, luckily LG has one in built. You just need something to access it like Nova Launcher. You can also access it using this application: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.szalkowski.activitylauncher
Run the application, go under "All Activities", scroll down to settings (the first one) and expand. Scroll down until you get to something called "Access Lock" which should be under "About Phone". Long press the Access Lock and add to home screen. Now you can uninstall the Activity Launcher, and you have a permissions manager without root.
I just installed MacroDroid and it will do what you want. I set both my camera and gallery to 100% brightness when the app launches, and then back down to my normal 35% brightness when the app closes. Very intuitive to use, took all of about 2 minutes to set the macro up. Does not require root, but if you are rooted, it opens up more options
Your accelerator might be broken. Try an app like this one
If that doesn't work, it is probably a software problem. A factory reset should work..
In addition to what others said, you can also use an app to change app notification colors (I use Light Manager and it works very well for my needs - I have different colors setup for a few contacts that IM me, for example).
While LG Backup is great, it's not a great idea for the long term as the amount of data you have on your phone grows exponentially, and you'll likely only backup your phone once a week if you're extra paranoid. Here's how I do it instead:
Whenever possible, log into apps with either your Google or Facebook accounts. That way you won't forget the login details, and many of these apps have either "Sign in with Google/Facebook or use a local account" anyways, so that's safer.
Use Google's services to backup photos, calendars, and contacts.
WhatsApp has a backup-to-Drive service that you have to enable in settings.
Enable cloud saving in every game you play. If the game doesn't support it, email the developers. It's crucial and easy enough to implement with Play Games.
Apps like SMS Backup & Restore help you periodically and automatically backup SMS messages to the cloud (G Cloud is another good alternative, but the one I gave a link to is 100% free etc)
If you live in the US and other select countries, you can use Google Music to cloud backup your music.
If you don't, or if you just want to sync any other folder to Drive but also keep a local copy in your preferred location, you may use Autosync or similar apps.
For SMS I use a combination of SMS Backup+ and SMS Backup & Restore.
SMS Backup+ saves my texts on my Gmail account with an SMS tag, and SMS Backup & Restore backs up the SMS data and can upload it to a cloud drive service (Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.).
Both have worked well for me for years, are free and don't require root.
Definitely you can connect your ps4 controller to your phone via this app (needs root): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.dancingpixelstudios.sixaxiscontroller
About the second part, i think any wifi remote cast app could have latency.
I'm not sure how to do it on Android's default download manager or if it is possible to do it. I use ADM (Advanced Download Manager) as my download manager and set it up to save downloaded files in /storage/external_sd/Android/data/com.dv.adm/files.
The auto-brightness is junk from LG. If you're really into it, Auto-Lux is a great app to control your brightness. It takes some fiddling but it works nicely!
Works like a charm with multiple bluetooth devices. Dead simple to set up. I've been using it for the past 3 phones I've owned.
Disclaimer: I've never tried it with Pandora, but it works great with Google Play and Soundcloud. Give it a shot.
Turning off Wifi and stuff don't help that much. Let smart phones adapt to you. Its surprising how far they've come. - Turn on Battery Saving and get rid of apps that uses a lot of battery like Carrier Bloat, Facebook, and etc.
I'm sure Leather back was one of the selling point so I doubt that they would've sold it every where. With that said LG promo says Leather backs take weeks to make(due to some Vegan friendly leather processing method lolz). So they might have sold off everything off and hasn't made any in recent times. Besides if you want Qi or Quick Circle neither comes with Leather back only plastic.
Try quickly pressing Vol. Down twice camera launches immediately(well as quick as it can) and you can also set to take pictures as soon as it turns on as well(though it will take picture of what ever last camera u used). NOTE: U can also double press Vol. Up to get QuickNote launched or using app called KeyPlus to edit. (ie I have mine to turn on flashlight)
You can change the default gallery, just download one from Google Play.
Hope that helps...
P.S. - for Battery life to increase further you could root and use something like Greenify.
You don't seem to look very hard. Here's the one I use very nice no bells and whistles just the three nav buttons https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ace.jun.simplecontrol
It expands the screen size and makes the phone look bigger I enjoy not having the on screen buttons and so do many other people so you don't necessarily need to be so pretentious about it.
That's the only problem I'm talking about. I said nothing about "screen adjusts" whatever that is.
This is what I'm looking at: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jun.ace.piecontrol&hl=en
There also this which doesn't look much better: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=tk.eatheat.pie2&hl=en
I'm not using either yet, because like I said, they don't look good.
It also makes no sense since you are basically just moving the controls from the bottom of the screen to an ugly fan on the side.
Titanium backup is an app that allows your to backup the apps on your phone + any data associated with them. also restore said apps later and restore market status (i.e. if you installed via market).
I have gone thru 6 phones and 3 tablets in past few years, titanium made it so I was up and running in under an hour after turning on a new phone and downloading and installing titanium.
I'm using the Moonlight Streaming App (A new GeForce Card is required).
I rooted my phone to use the PS3 Controller without any OTG cables.
And I use the Smart Gameklip to mount my phone. The phone sits relatively safe in it, even shaking the controller is no problem.
I'm streaming [email protected] without any stutters. Lag is noticeable, but not much.
[email protected] is possible, but I get stutters every few minutes. A 5Ghz WLAN Router would probably help with this problem. I only have a 2,4Ghz Router and this is enough for [email protected]
I'm trying Lux and it's working very well.
The light sensor in the device is really good and you can tell it to be dynamic or just to adjust when the screen turns on.
Gravity Screen ON/OFF https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.plexnor.gravityscreenofffree&hl=en
I used to use this on previous phones and it worked great. Haven't tried it on my G4, but worth a shot.
I used the LG Software that came with my phone to do it. Just keep in mind that it'll replace any texts you sent from your G4, not add the ones from your old phone onto them.
Lama is a great free alternative to Tasker (which is good in its own right). While the UI may not be a slick as its a lot of the functionality is there such as multiple location based profiles (ex: having your phone on loud when you are home and auto switching to soft when you leave the house/auto silence at work/time of day/etc).
A lot of car chargers like this show up as a data cable instead of a charging cable, meaning its going to limit your charging to usb speeds instead of wall wart speeds.
Check what the charger says it outputs, then use ampere while its charging to see what its actually outputting.
You can make a data cable turn into a charge cable by shorting a pin, but by the looks of that plug, it doesn't look like it will be easy.
Here's a decent article with good links. Not sure if it goes into the differences between data cable and charging cable though
Copied from their website:
"Xposed is a framework for modules that can change the behavior of the system and apps without touching any APKs. That's great because it means that modules can work for different versions and even ROMs without any changes (as long as the original code was not changed too much). It's also easy to undo. As all changes are done in the memory, you just need to deactivate the module and reboot to get your original system back. There are many other advantages, but here is just one more: Multiple modules can do changes to the same part of the system or app. With modified APKs, you to decide for one. No way to combine them, unless the author builds multiple APKs with different combinations."
I had the same issue, however all of my devices are saying that. If you go to the play store on your computer it shows that the app requires Android 2.2-3.2. I ended up installing the latest version from ApkMirror
Magisk it is used to root devices by not modifying /system partition, thus making it to pass SafetyNet checks needed by some apps like Netflix and others that will not appear as available on devices detected as rooted (you can hide root from apps easily in Magisk). It still needs something additional to be flashed, but it is just one thing to add. You are asking a lot of questions, I really cannot answer them all. The guides I gave you should tell all that you need (mostly adb and fastboot) and also give you links for whatever you need to download. If you have not used a custom recovery before, then you should read here (it also gives some information about ADB as well) https://twrp.me/FAQ/. TWRP is a touch recovery, you can use it to flash zip files that are prepared to be used with TWRP.
I also found this on XDA https://www.xda-developers.com/how-to-install-twrp/. Read as much as you can and at least all the links I gave you, you seem to be really new at this.
install that, it's an alternative app market. On there you'll find voodoo carrieriq detector. While you're there you might pickup an app called adaway which is very good at stopping ads in apps as well as on the web (assuming you have root)
If you have had camera app set to record to microsd card (instead of internal storage), you may take out the card, connect to computer with some reader. On computer, there are many softwares available that allow to recover data. If you have not take much pictures/videos after deleting, you have chance to recover.
There are two kind of softwares to recover data: ones that try to recover data based on information left filesystem structures and the ones that recover data based on knowledge of contents (for example how jpg images are structured inside). You will want to use the later - it has higher chance to recover images. I have used this one in past (on Linux, but it is available on Windows and Mac too): http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec and it worked for me.
If the photos are on internal storage, you will have to rely on android apps. I have no experience with those. See advice from KissFromAGhost in other comment.
I use Syncthing to sync all my data (photos, videos, download folder, WhatsApp folder etc) to my desktop computer and my server. When my G4 started to bootloop, I did not lose anything, which was a relief.
Slickdeals.net is a great place to get deals on Amazon for Aukey chargers.
Slickdeals had a great deal today on an Aukey quick charge charger. You could, any maybe still can, buy it for $10.
google voice essentially gives you a new phone number that you can have forward calls/text to whatever number(s) you're currently using. it's now almost entirely integrated with hangouts so all your calls/texts are stored in the same place, whether that's the hangouts app on your phone or https://hangouts.google.com (or gmail, or via a chrome extension).
i don't actually know much about the setup now as i started using it before g+ or hangouts existed, but try going to https://voice.google.com and seeing what they tell you about it.
i'm pretty sure you actually still need the google voice app installed to make calls from the regular phone app, but you can always place/receive calls via the hangouts app over wi-fi or lte.
Usually different USB ports on the same external battery have completely different amperage outputs. I guess just make sure that you are always using the highest amperage output. One thing that you could do is buy a voltage and current meter from Amazon they're like $7 to watch the power flow through your USB and you could test.

It's directly to the left of the earpiece speaker. I bought a cheap tempered glass screen protector off Amazon that covered it and I had the same problem. I ended up buying one that has a cut out area to where it doesn't cover the sensor or the camera. Here's the one I bought...Skinomi Tech Glass - LG G4 Glass Screen Protector w/ Lifetime Replacement Ultra Thin .33mm Thickness Tempered Glass - Clear 9H Hardness w/ Oleophobic Coating - 99% Clarity and Touchscreen Accuracy https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00XWQTXG6/ref=cm_sw_r_other_awd_YU1XwbAJHBCES
Most of OPs questions have been addressed, but I'll still chime in. The case I personally went with is the Diztronic one. I also went with the Yootech screen protector. And I bought the cheapest SD card off Ebay that I could find. I only paid $10 for 128 GB.. and it seems to be working just fine. It was a gamble that seems to have paid off.
I purchased this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00RG4KBWU?
The only issue is that if you have a pretty much any case, you should take it off. Might have better luck trying to find one that may hold up to 3.5-3.7 inch wide phones.
Its and Orion XT8 and I used this variable transmission filter to bring the light down to about 10%. But it was so ridiculously bright that I would have gotten a better pic and more details getting it closer to 5%,
Well, as I said, I'm really careful with my electronics (I'm too damn poor to go replacing these things all the time). This is only my 2nd smartphone (just upgraded from an old iPhone 4s ~4 months ago, which I had for over 4 years, with nothing but a tiny chip taken out of the bottom of the screen). But, I have dropped it off my lap a couple of times (onto hard flooring), and once out of my hand, onto rough concrete. Along with the tempered glass screen I use, I've never once had any reason to believe that either of these two cases would let me down.
Now, were I clumsier (hey, it happens), or if I spent more of my time in ways which would pose more threat to my phone, I would absolutely have gone with more protection. If, say, you're a lineman, and you spend a large portion of your workday up in a cherry picker, you would definitely want something that's going to offer a lot more drop protection. But overall, these cases both work perfectly well for me. Plus, they're cheap!
(Now watch, now that I'm saying all this, it's gonna end up in a toilet or something, and I'm going to really regret not getting a fuckin' Otterbox!)
When you get it, remove the adhesive backing and lay the sticker on the phone first and line up the contacts. Use a few very small pieces of tape to hold it in place. Then press the battery cover down on top of it. Once you've got it stuck on there, pull the cover back off and apply the sticker on top of the charging pad. It might take you 10 minutes to do this if you're being slow with it. It's really a 5 minute installation.
It looks like there is now a screen + frame assembly that is available via Prime, link below.
Here is a link to my original post.
I always had this problems with lg and Samsung usb cables. I didn't even bother taking them out of the box anymore. The charger itself seems to last for ever tho. I bought this set twice one for me and one for my brother (Samsung). They fit in nice and very durable.
If you have a leather back, I've suggest this Ringke case. It doesn't add much bulk. The side material is soft TPU, but the back is solid.
The port covers might be a turn-off for some, but I like it. I don't like that exposed ports pretty much turn into dust bunny colonies after a while.
came from a HTC M7 with a dock that I could slip my phone into very easily. Missing a dock right now as well. I'm considering this with a Qi sticker http://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JRGOKQ8?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s00
I got the Joby and attached that to a regular camera tripod.
Remote trigger is a generic bluetooth.
I was thinking about ordering that, then, I realized that I want to get the strap. So, I ordered this instead, Amazon VR, should be here by tomorrow or Monday.
Makes sense. My friend uses this one as his commuter our in LA. I've never asked how well it works, but since he bought it a few months ago, I haven't heard any complaints nor has he tried another one. He has a Nexus 5 btw.
And while the back cover isn't quite closing 100% (apparently that is an issue with this particular sticker), I have a case on the phone and it's not noticeable. I haven't done any performance tests as I only have a wireless charging car dock, but AT&T customers, this is absolute proof that a third-party QI sticker will work with your G4.
This is really the only bumper case I can find. No black left for me to buy.
Here are some pics of the case: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=61333789&postcount=109
Thanks - I've been using this...
Its a little awkward sometimes I find but it did okay last night for sure.
I got the Spigen "Rugged Armor" case.
It doesn't seem particularly bulky (maybe a bit less so than the Spigen case linked to by jakeeispro) and works with the leather back, although it may pop off awkwardly occasionally while trying to take the case off. Adds enough space to protect the camera & sensors too. It's a great case, feels just like the "Bounce" one I got for my Note 3 which prevented cracks from relatively high drops and I can see it being very reliable daily use case.
The kickstand is okay and kind of gimmicky, but in my experience it hasn't gotten in the way at all (I expected it to get snagged in things all the time). If closed, it doesn't easily open unless you want it to, which is great.
You will get LG Bridge, get your G4 into Download Mode(phone off, vol down as you plug in the USB cable) and it will auto detect and update it to stock 6.0. After this is done you can start again.
This time you will boot into TWRP instead of flashing it. While in TWRP you will flash either SuperSu or Magisk, I prefer Magisk nowadays. Reboot into your fresh 6.0 with root, install Magisk manager/SuperSu manager and install Flashify and use it to flash TWRP's .img (flash recovery image>choose file)
Through Flashify you will boot into recovery (3 dots top right>Boot recovery) to make sure it's installed properly because if you use the button combination and you DON'T have TWRP installed and you go through the LG menu that tells you it will wipe EVERYTHING, it will actually wipe everything instead of booting into TWRP.
After this is done, get your LOS and Gapps and proceed to factory reset in TWRP and flash your OS and Gapps and root if you like. Let me know if you need more help.
The official Apple android music client is not great. (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.apple.android.music)
Use Doubletwist: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.doubleTwist.androidPlayer
As long as you have a good size SD card, you should be good to go.
Many times, it's an issue with high resolution contact images. If you don't have many contacts, try to remove their images, or use some of the free apps to fix that problem. Here's one https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ru.ivary.ContactsSyncFix
Try this. Install QuickShortcutMaker: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sika524.android.quickshortcut&hl=en
Search for the shortcut called "KnockOn". Then click "try". If it's turned off, toggle it on.
LG hid this option from the regular settings and I don't know why it sometimes toggles itself.
Equalizer FX. Pro on Google Play
Edit: Tested it with Poweramp (disabling its equalizer) and Amazon Music and it did nothing at all.
This app also works well:
It's possible you might need to calibrate the internal compass, or have sensor issues. The app liked to above can help with diagnosing those.
I don't know if this will solve your problem but try another music player. This one for example is waaay better than the stock LG music player.
Forcing the screen off is the wrong way to go about it. You need to kill the app so nothing is preventing your phone from sleeping.
I haven't tested it but try this sleep timer. Set YouTube or app to close after certain time.
I needed to disable LTE on my ATT G4 (now on 6.0) due to battery life issues. Thought it would be impossible without root until I found this gem: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=you.love.v10.hidden.settings&hl=en
This app isn't v10 specific luckily. Give it a shot! Works for me.
