Default [APP] Flashable LG QuickRemote v8 for AOSP custom Roms

hello,
so this is my port of the QuickRemote flashable on all non-LG custom Roms.
it's been up on sefnaps thread for a while but i decided to make a new one to avoid confusion.
Thanks to:
@sefnap for the initial port
@FiendFyre for helping to bring the missing remotes back

Size:	174.0 KB
ID:	2491546

info:
-extracted from leaked kitkat build
-reduced size by removing unneeded help videos and optimizing pngs
-fixed all graphical issues because of porting
-works with all ROMs that have init.d support (or use universal init.d)
-widgets not working (yet)

installation:
-just flash the zip with your recovery
-it tries to detect the device, but if you still miss remotes you can flash AT&T or Verizon zips after the QRemote
-reflash after ROM not necessary on most roms
-if you have problems just let me know (with logcat in case of a crash)
-to clear things up: you don't need to change build.prop unless you have problems.
-your old remotes might get lost if you come from another QuickRemote apk
-does not work with ART


Changelog:
 
Quote:
V8:
-disabled widgets and non functional settings
-lowered min SDK to 16 (for testing)
-simplified internal EULA skip

V7:
-fixed missing remotes by setting additional props
-added optional operator overriding
-fixed AT&T U-verse remote not working (bug introduced by LG)

V6:
-PNG optimization

V1-5:
-stuff i don't remember

Download:
QRemoteG2_v8.zip
QRemoteG2_v8.zip (mirror)
QRemoteG2_v7.zip

Uninstall:
QRemote_uninstall.zip (flash in recovery)
Force Carrier Coding: (only flash if necessary!)
AT&T
Verizon[/SIZE]

old version (4.3):
 
QRemoteG2_slim3_unsigned.zip
info:
-reduced size to ~25MB by removing unneeded help videos and smoothing graphics
-all color problems should be fixed
-works with all almost all ROMs (480dpi), including kitkat, but has to be reflashed after ROM update
-if it doesn't work for you you can try using "universal init.d" or a similar app. (or ask your rom developer to add init.d kernel support)

What about those who have the script running from a previous version? Do we need to delete it first? I would appreciate an update instruction. Thanks for supporting.

update should work with no problems as it removes all files that could have been left by an old installation (except data).
i update the instructions

I'm going to go ahead and say that it's not very likely.
If you are on the international version, maybe, but I think there would be a kernel module missing, which would make it difficult.

You do specifically say KK but unless something has changed since a few days ago, this works fine on JB as well on my AOKP 4.3.

So feel free to try it people, but as always, if you're putting something in /system have a recovery plan
AT&T LG G2 - 4.3, AOKP
Samsung Note i717 - 4.2.2, Unofficial AOKP
Nexus 7 Wifi 2012 - 4.4.2, Stock Rooted (m-kernel)
Try my Alternative XDA CSS Themes (including 2010!)
