Default "Hidden" settings via Nova

I haven't seen this posted and thought I would pass it on.

With Nova launcher long press home screen > shortcuts > activities. Scroll through and select what you want and it'll put an icon on your home screen. 271 choices in settings. Many don't do anything. Probably the easiest way to disable cabl.

Or you can use activity launcher for that...

But beware! Don't test those settings randomly unless you have backup. I ended up with broken quick cover by changing cover type. Had to wipe my rom to get it work again

I'd imagine it'd work on other third party launchers also, I just happened to use Nova. Some of the settings aren't even applicable to the g2. It appears that lg modified a different device's rom to use on the g2 or they have a master rom and select features and settings to be visible on each device. Who knows...
