SIM Unlock
LG G2 LS980


Must have:

1. Stock ROM (or Stock based)
2. ROOT
3. Drivers on PC
4. Connect phone to PC with USB-debugging


Instructions:

1. Launch Totalcmd.exe on PС
2. Go to Network -> ABD -> Your device

3. Copy All Folders from carrier to /carrier/
4. Reboot
* Confirm permissions on the phone
* You can use any Root File Manager to do the same... TC don't work on KitKat

To make APNs stick automatically:

1. Replace apns-conf.xml in Folder /etc/
2. Delete File telephony.db and mmssms.db in Folder /data/data/com.android.providers.telephony/databases
3. Reboot

To make MMS work (Not for sure, try Hangouts):

1. In dialer press ##443336772#, you will get a 6 digit SPC code, remember it! (can see it only on JB 4.2.2)
2. In dialer press ##DATA# , this will take you to hidden Data settings
3. Select MMSC
4. Hit Edit, you will be prompted for your SPC code, enter it
5. Now have 3 options: Set URL, Gateway, and Set Port. Set all
6. Reboot

To remove Bloat rename system aplications:

Activation.apk.bak
OmaDmclient.apk.bak
SPR_Skyfire_Observer.apk.bak
SPR_Skyfire_Toolbar.apk.bak
SprintExtensionProvider.apk.bak
SprintID.apk.bak
SprintTouch.apk.bak
Vtt-Sprint.apk.bak
xtra_t_app.apk.bak
Zone-Sprint.apk.bak
WIFIOffloader.apk.bak
* Look for them in app and priv-app folders
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

If Tethering don't work:

Follow this Guide
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

To stop Sprint Update notification:

1. Install Autostarts app from Google Play (this is a pay app and there may be other free apps that do the same thing but this is what I used)
2. Go to After Startup
3. Scroll down until you see Google Services Framework
4. There should be several of them. For me it was the third one. Tap it and read the bottom of the popup to find out. It will say Receiver com.google.android.gsf.update.SystemUpdateService. ..
5. Disable it (Grant Root)
6. Reboot
* Thanks for Marty
