HIT THANKS IF I HELPED
1) It's not easy to decrypt stock LG firmware for that. Would be easier to download a stock based rom and grab it from there.
2) It's not that simple, you have to set permissions for system apps as well.
To OP: Go SMS should work fine. You just need to go into the advance settings and make sure it's checked off to be your standalone messaging system and there is an option to add your own MMS settings, which should be all you need.
Many other texting apps have custom settings for MMS options too. Hello SMS, Go SMS, ChompSMS, Handcent, Textra, Slide Messaging, and Evolve SMS all do if I remember right.
Edit: Sorry, can't read. I thought you were having MMS issues, not SMS. But yea, that's odd. You don't normally need the stock Messaging app anymore to send SMS.
You might have to reinstall your entire OS. Gotta make sure you know what system version you are on as they are slight differences between the carriers and regions the phone was sold from.
