Here are a few simple mods I've made to my stock VS98011A rom since I've owned the phone. They're pretty straightforward. Standard rules apply...Use these at your own risk, make sure you have a backup, flash them in recovery (I use twrp), blah blah blah
!!! Unless otherwise noted, these are for stock (odexed) VS98011A/12B
Qi Charging while the phone stays off
- I wanted the option to keep the phone off (and cooler) while wirelessly charging, but LG saw fit to make it boot the second you put it on the pad. This keeps the phone off just as if you were charging with a regular ac adaptor. This one will work fine on 11A/12B odexed/deodexed.
HiddenMenu and Dialer access enabler
- For some reason, Verizon omitted the HiddenMenus. The apk was absent and they disabled access to most secret codes via the dialer. This adds the newest version of LG's HiddenMenu/AAT apks and enables access via the following dialer codes:
##LGSERVICEMENU - Gets you into the main LG HiddenMenu
##PROGRAM - Verizon's specific menu
##AATEST - AAT menu
##FEATURE - Another VZW menu
If you're asked for a password, just enter 000000
If you break anything while playing in here, blame the person standing to your right.
Increased volume steps
- This is just something I've been doing to my phones for a while...30 steps for music/media and 15 for the rest (up from 15 and 7). There are a number of tutorials out there on this. I originally read about how to do it here
Thank you. I have been complaining about this with android for a long time. I used to hook my phone up at a bar and play music over the loudspeakers and most of the time one step up was too loud and one step down was too low. Usually had to bring my iPad to get it right.
The only one that will work on a deodexed Rom is the charging mod (as it's just an ini file). If I get some time, I can deodex the others, but you could also do so yourself if you don't want to wait. Are you sure you're running stock? These won't work with AOSP.
