Hey Gang.

I was super happy coming home with my brand spanking new G3 phone, until I realized that the feature I'm probably using the most - OSP (On-Screen Phone) is seemingly missing.

Is there a way to get this working on the G3? Can it be ported from G2?

Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks
Kingkeld.

I followed the instructions on the following thread and now LG OSP works with my G3.

The relevant post on the thread:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...4&postcount=17

I also installed the LG OSP APK on my G3.

Download link for LG OSP APK:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/pdqgzpqy1x....lge.osp-2.apk

Download link for the D855 folder I created (copied from G2 folder and changed model name in all required places):
https://www.dropbox.com/s/cg526mu5rlgy3tw/LG-D855.rar

Detailed instructions:
1. Copy the files from the models available that represent the best your phone and paste them into your model's folder. If it does not exist, create it.
2. Rename the xml file to your model's name, in my case it was P930, which is also the folders name (not sure if this is critical, but to be safe just do so).
3. Open the file with notepad (notepad>open or right-click then edit).

You should see these tags:
Code:
<on-screen-phone id="P930" version="2.0">
<model>LG-P930</model>
<name>P930</name>
I renamed all these (there were named "720X1280"). Fill these tags with the model of your phone, again.

In short, I made a new folder named D855 and copied all the files from the D802 folder to the D855 folder.
Then I renamed the d802 xml file to d855.
I opened the xml file in notepad, did a "search & replace" for d802 to replace it with "d855".

You should do the same for your G3's model number.

@Splashy2k

Thank you very much for this post... Downloaded the files, installed apk but where on the phone do I have to copy the LG-D855 folder?
Or do I have to copy it into a folder on my PC?

Have a good one.

You need to copy it to a folder on your PC: My Documents\LG OSP\Phone_skin directory

Thanks a million! It works perfect.
Wonder why it's not in the G3 by default...

Your my hero of the day.



P.S.: I hope you don't mind if I share this in another forum?

Will this work on the D850 the way you set it up? If it won't, how would I go about making it work?

Quoted from the post I was referring to:

1. Copy the files from the models available that represent the best your phone and paste them into your model's folder. If it does not exist, create it.

2. Rename the xml file to your model's name, in my case it was P930, which is also the folders name (not sure if this is critical, but to be safe just do so).

3. Open the file with notepad (notepad>open or right-click then edit).

you should see these tags:

Code:
<on-screen-phone id="P930" version="2.0">
<model>LG-P930</model>
<name>P930</name>
I renamed all these (there were named "720X1280"). Fill these tags with the model of your phone, again.

In short, I made a new folder named D855 and copied all the files from the D802 folder to the D855 folder.
Then I renamed the d802 xml file to d855.
I opened the xml file in notepad, did a "search & replace" for d802 to replace it with "d855".

You should do the same for the D850.

I done all as you explained but when I tried to detect my G3 D855 via OSP on PC via USB, it keep saying cannot detect.

It asks me to select PC software option in the USB connection mode in the phone or via Settings/PC Connection , but I do not have the option.

Is this the reason?

It should be on the Media Device (MTP) option, it works for me.
If it still doesn't work, try another USB port on your PC.
