Based on [MOD] [GUIDE] SplitWindow for G2 stock KK roms thread. And post #60 in particular.


I would like to introduce SplitWindow MOD Maker application [APK]

Since now, the PC is not needed anymore to create the mod for your device. All necessary tools are included into the APK and can be executed on the phone. All tasks (disassembling / patching / assembling / making installer / odexing) are automatically done by single click.

I have to mention once more that the MOD itself is not mine, I've made just automated installer. So give the credits to xdabbeb (see the thread mentioned above).

Screenshots:









Requirements:
  • ROOTed device.
  • Custom recovery installed.
  • Time (about 15 minutes).
  • Backup of /system partition.

How to apply the MOD:
  • Install the APK attached below.
  • Run it.
  • Press the button [Create MOD] and go have a cup of coffee/tea. The process could take a lot of time. On PC it takes seconds, but on the phone it executes for minutes. For me it took about 10-12 minutes to complete.
  • After APK finished, you need to install created MOD via custom recovery. You can press [Reboot to Recovery] right inside the application to reboot the device into recovery mode.
  • Do not forget to make backup of /system partition when recovery is loaded.
  • Choose "Install" and select one of file located in /sdcard/SplitWindowMOD folder (with GPro2 or G3 theme accordingly).
  • Reboot in normal mode, open Settings->Multitasking and enable new functionality. Then long-press "Back" button and you've done. (If there is no Multitasking settings, anyway try to press and hold "Back" button. Maybe it will work without the settings.)

Some comments:
If you already have SplitWindow installed (previously created by this APK or elsewhere), DO NOT try to recreate the MOD by this application (or at least do not install the result). It will produce unpredictable result and the secondary installation could lead to bootloop. Use the APK on clean system (without SplitWindow functionality) ONLY.
If you successfully installed the MOD, just keep the MOD files (/sdcard/SplitWindowMOD/*.zip) in case you want to restore system from backup in install them again. You do not need to recreate these files each time. Therefore, the APK itself can be uninstalled.

There is no multitasking in settings. Is there a way to remove the apps that you don't really use? Reboot to recovery also doesn't work and says "no such tool", I have to do it manually through power options. When I ran the apk a second time and didn't delete the previous splitwindowmod folder I got stuck in a boot loop, just a warning for anyone who wants to try multiple times. I think all is good now though, works great!

If no Multitasking option is appear in settings after full installation of this mod and you successfully booted. you are lucky. Maybe your ROM is not compatible for this MOD.
There is no such way to remove the MOD from system except to restore from backup. But if the MOD actually works and not needed anymore, just switch its functionality off in the settings.
If the button [Reboot to Recovery] does not work, that's mean there is no command 'reboot' in the system. Strange, mine device does have such command.
SplitWindowMOD folder can be not deleted (it contains only 2 resulted files after each successful run of [Create MOD] action) between multiple tries to create the MOD. But yes, you should use the application ONLY BEFORE the MOD is actually installed. Otherwise, the resulted files are unpredictable and after installing such files bootloop is the most likely what you will get. (Added this notice into the first post)
After installation of MOD and if the MOD works well, you can uninstall the APK, it's not needed anymore, Just keep the resulted files from /sdcard/SplitWindowMOD folder in case if you want to reinstall this mod on clean (restored from backup) system. (Also added this notice into the first post)

P.S. I have no chance to check if this APK works on all LG G2 models, as I have only one of them - D802 20b CIS (it shown on screenshots).

Just tried it. Took 16 minutes to complete for me. Works like a charm on the new 20F base. I also don't have the multitasking button. It just works by holding the back button

Nice work m8. Glad someone else is developing apk's for our G2

Instead of "reboot to recovery" you might add "Install" and then it reboots to recovery and automatically installs the mod.
