Default Frequently Asked Questions - LG Optimus G (AT&T)

Frequently Asked Questions
LG Optimus G (AT&T)

This a short list of frequently asked questions in this device forum and the answers often given as a response. It should serve as a starting point for gathering knowledge and finding solutions to many common problems. Please only post in this thread with feedback on how to improve this document. Do not post "Thank you" type responses. If you have additional questions or require more help, try to find an existing thread or create your own. Do not use this as a general help thread.

Q1: How do I root/unlock this phone?
There is a guide in the 'General" subforum. Recoveries can be found in the 'Development' subforum.
Note: There is an " Everything" thread stickied in the 'General' subforum where you will find many of the goods for this device.
Q2: What is the best ROM?
Please refrain from asking questions about the 'best' ROM, kernel, launcher or anything else as the answer is subjective at best. Here is a reply from a Moderator Best/Fastest Rom
Q3: Do I need to do anything besides root/unlock before flashing a ROM?
Make a backup of your current ROM.
Q4: After flashing a ROM I am stuck on splash/boot screen- what do I do?
Try wiping data, cache,and dalvik as well as under mounts and storage format system then reflash. If you still have the issue go to the ROM specific thread and search there for an answer. If you have searched and the answer is not there then post the question, preferably in 'Q&A' subforum rather than the development thread.
Q5: I changed to a different recovery- where is my backup?
It can not be seen by a different recovery - either revert back to the recovery where your backup is located or make a new backup with the recovery you are now using.
Q6: How do I return to stock?
LGNPST. There is a guide in the 'General' subforum.
Q7: Why is my 'XYZ' app not working on this new ROM?
This is most likely not because it is a new rom. Best solution is to uninstall the app and do a fresh install, meaning not from a backup.
Q8: Why is battery life not so good on my phone?
We all use our phones a little to a lot different than someone else therefore there is not a 'one fix' answer. Try using a couple of apps such as CPU Spy and Better Battery Stats to help you identify the problem areas.
Q9: After flashing a rom, I get a pop-up saying ' Unfortunately the process Android.process.media has stopped. How can I clear that message?
Clear Data in media storage is usually all it takes. You may also re-flash the rom- when re-installing apps do not restore data.
Q10: MTP connection for my phone is on. Why doesn't my pc/laptop recognize it?
Try a different USB port and / or cable- try rebooting the computer (up to 3 times). Try USB port that is 2.0 rather than 3.0.Some Win 8 users report issues, consult Win 8 support. Uninstall and then re-install the LG drivers from Here

Pony,

I have a couple FAQ's that I'd like to nominate for your list (there may be additional answers that people will want to offer, but the answers are as complete a list that I can think of/find):

Q. After flashing the ROM, I get a popup saying "Unfortunately, the process android.process.media has stopped."
A.
1) Clear data for the Media Storage service
2) Reflash the ROM when reinstalling the apps don't restore data



Q. My PC/Laptop doesn't recognize that my phone is connected when MTP connected:
A.
1) use a different USB port
2) don't use a USB 3.0 port
2) use a different USB to micro cable
3) reboot PC/Laptop: may require multiple reboots of PC/Laptop (standard windows fix is to reboot 3 times, to see if it fixes the prob, before calling their helpless desk)
4) are you using an Windows 8 PC/Laptop? Change to a different computer
5) reinstall/manually install the drivers (http://www.lg.com/us/support-mobile/lg-E970)
