!!! I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY PROBLEMS THAT OCCUR WHILE INSTALLING/USING THIS !!!
This is a modified stock firmware. It is bascially how I run my own phone (with a few exceptions to make it more generic). I will update it if I make any major changes (likely with the kernel).
- Updated XCam to 5.2.4
- Removed a little more bloat
- Updated ART/IMS patch
- Updated Play Services/Play Store/Search to current versions
- Added Google TTS as default and removed LG's
- Updated G3 Keyboard
- Updated LG Apps and Gapps zips per above
- A few more minor changes that I can't remember
- Updated to 26A base
- Xdabbeb kernel v2.0.0 included
- OnDemand is still the default, but you can switch to a tuned interactive governor by creating /sdcard/interactive file (also turns on bricked hotplug mpdec).
- Force bricked hotplug mpdec by creating /sdcard/mpdecision file.
- Turn on CAF touchboost by creating /sdcard/touchboost file. If the file is empty, boost freq is 1036800 Hz. If you want a different one, just put the value inside the text file (no spaces). Valid options are (422400, 652800, 729600, 883200, 960000, 1036800, 1190400, 1267200, 1497600, 1574400, 1728000, 1958400, 2265600)
- If you use ART, flash the patch that fixes the race condition caused by ims when using this RT (still unregistered, may have 1/2 to 1 sec sms delay). There's a revert patch as well if you want to go back to Dalvik.

How to Install:
- Peform a full nandroid backup.
- If you already have a full 26A bootstack by going through a carrier OTA or the method here or some other method and are running TWRP 126.96.36.199, you may skip to step 5. Otherwise continue to step 3.
- If you are coming from 10b, 11a, 12b, 24a, 25a, 25b you must first update your entire bootstack to be compatible by flashing xdabbeb_vs98026a_bootstack.zip below after verifying the md5.
- This includes a thermally-governed TWRP 188.8.131.52 (thanks @drgravy).
- This process will wipe your laf partition to allow fastboot mode (thanks @JackpotClavin). This is a safety measure so that if anything goes wrong (aside from an aboot write failure), we still have a means to recover your phone to a working state. If you wish to learn more about fastboot mode, please search. There are countless resources that describe its use and benefits.
- If you wish to restore the Download Mode functionality ONLY after successfully installing this rom, you can flash the xdabbeb_restore_dl_mode.zip file below after verifying the md5 and that your aboot is v12b.
- After flashing the bootstack zip, reboot back into recovery (twrp has an option to do this directly from it's root menu > reboot > recovery). If you fail to do so and get caught in a loop, do the following to manually get back into recovery:
- Unplug the usb cable if it is plugged in
- Hold down power + volume down...the phone will turn off, but don't release them yet. It will flash LG logo for a split second and then turn off completely and stay off. You may release the buttons now.
- Press and hold power + volume down. when you see the LG logo release the power button ONLY and then quickly press it and hold again until you boot into recovery.
- Hit power twice to enter recovery
- Do a full wipe of system/data/dalvik-cache/cache within twrp. You should leave internal storage alone.
- Flash the latest firmware version below after verifying the md5.
- OPTIONAL: ALL of the removed LG & 3rd-party apps are in xdabbeb_vs98026a_lg_apps.zip and the removed Google apps are in xdabbeb_vs98026a_gapps.zip. Both are flashable and you can manually remove any apps you don't want before installing with WinZip, etc. ONCE AGAIN THESE ARE OPTIONAL. They are only provided as a courtesy to those who want access to the files. If you flash either of these and have problems, don't post in the thread...clean flash with the main firmware zip and run the firmware as originally intended.

If you don't know the difference between bump/loki and what it means with regards flashing other firmware, then don't download or use anything in this section. Do not ask questions about this in the thread regardless. If you wish to run a bumped kernel/recovery/26A aboot, then flash the bumped zip after flashing the main rom zip. If you wish to revert back to a loki'd kernel/recovery/12b aboot, flash the loki'd zip. There is also a separate laf restore zip if you wish to use download mode while using the 26A bootloader/aboot.

Donations are always appreciated!
Please provide any feedback pertaining to bugs or feature requests as I'll be actively working on this project.
Devs: I will be providing flashable zips for some of the mods included in this release so that users can flash them separately. As such, there is no need for and I don't want anything listed here to be shared, used or uploaded elsewhere.
