Well this one isn't so difficult but I though I'd share for those that have not worked it out yet.

The LG Device Test "HiddenMenu" is apparently on all shipping phones and it's simply disabled via removing the menu entry.

To activate you need to create a shortcut to this hidden menu. You can do this with most replacement launchers and apps like BetterCut.

Example using LauncherPro (others will use a similar method):
  1. Long press on home screen
  2. Select Shortcuts
  3. Select Activities
  4. Scroll down to and expand com.lge.hiddenmenu
  5. Select HiddenMenu (first entry)
  6. Enter Shortcut name
  7. Click on shortcut to launch
  8. Hit 'Thanks' below
Also now Logcat app:
  1. As above
  2. Scroll down to and expand LG Debug
  3. Select LG Debug (first entry)
  4. Enter Shortcut name
  5. Click on shortcut to launch
  6. Hit 'Thanks' below
Enjoy the vast amount of options and tests in there, and be careful as some are destructive.

Perhaps Useful:
  • Dim Capacitive Buttons: Device Test | Touch LED Brightness
  • Turn on Camera LED: Device Test | Camera Test | Torch Flashlight Preview

Wtf I just dimmed my touch buttons nice.

The brightess of the buttons was to bright for using the phone as a ebook reader at night the setting stays avyive even after exiting the test.

Btw is the thanks button only displayed on the site and not in tge xda app?

Thanx!

Device Test | Touch LED Brightness - all the way at the bottom.

Does not withstand a reboot.

Thx buttons pressed!!

The phone is getting better and better.
Only thing for me left to do is Root, No adds and delete couple of apps.
And try to fix the Lock screen lag when you power on screen.

What specifically is that? I use WidgetLocker and don't experience lag... does it taker a while with the stock one to become responsive? I can't recall that.
