Hi folks,


I've seen on the forums that people are modding their LGKeyguardEffect.apk to be able to get more weather effects on their lockscreen for years. Yesterday I tried the same thing and after looking around in the decompiled app, I discovered that this app is actually reading a boolean from build.prop to determine if the extra effects should be enabled or not. The effects that will be unlocked are sunny and cloudy.
Instead of hacky smali edits and breaking the app signature, you can just add "ro.product.brand_dsny=true" to build.prop and reboot. If you updated to Android 9, the line must be "ro.product.lge.brand_dsny=true" because LG changed that for some reason. In case you're wondering: dsny stands for Disney, yes.
Don't forget to enable the feature under Settings - Lock screen & security - Customize Lock screen - Weather animation


This mod is confirmed to work on:
  • LG G7: Android 8.0
  • LG G6: Android 7.0
  • LG G4: Android 7.0
  • LG V30: Android 8.0
  • LG V20: Android 7.0, Android 8.0
  • LG V10: Android 7.0

I expect it to work on more LG roms with LGKeyguardEffect version 1.0.02


A very simple Magisk module can be found in the attachments that does the work for you

You can search for com.lge.effect in your installed apps list in settings

If the value is read, the mod will work. Else it will just get ignored

confirmed working on my LG V20 H990DS running Android Nougat
confirmed working on my LG V20 H990DS running Android Nougat (7.0) (H990ds10k_00_OPEN_ESA_DS_OP_0117) rooted with Magisk 18.0.
Making changes with build.prop with Build.Prop Editor from Play Store but nothing has changed. Then I just flashed the zip module with Magisk and voila, it is working good without any hassle.
Thank you. I love this kind of lockscreen weather animation, just like my old HTC Sensation on a few years back.

The more you know!
I never had to mess up with LGKeyguardEffect on my G4 H815. Guess devs enable this tweak on all custom ROMS? I do have the v1.0.02 weather effects app.

Woah I didn't expect it to work even on that device, great news!
Is your device running Marshmallow or Nougat?
And AFAIK this tweak is a first. I know a dev has included it in his magisk module after I posted about it, but that's all
