3rd EDIT: Now available with H930 Open EU 21W and newer.
Korean variants also have it.
2nd EDIT: NOW LG has put this the DTS framework in Hong Kong H930DS 21w (and newer) as well as Verizon VS996 20i (and newer). But you still need root to fully enable it.
1st EDIT: @JohnFawkes says he can only confirm the necessary libs are in some newer KDZ. So, until LG puts the libs in other variant firmware, then this will only work with the variants that have the libs.
V30 DTS announcement on LG's Korea website. I will update this op as more information becomes available..
Fully enable DTS 3D stereo (root needed)
On recent V30 update with November 2018 and newer security patch, LG added DTS 3D stereo (mentioned in change log) but they seem to have messed it up. DTS does not appear as a separate entry and you can not turn it on/off. HOWEVER, with root, now you can. (ALL V30/V30+/V30S can be bootloader unlocked and rooted.) Credits go to the people quoted below. This mod may work with other LG series phones if LG also messed up the recent DTS 3D stereo implementation? Hopefully, LG will fix this in future update.
1st, you need V30 firmware with necessary DTS framework. (LG is now adding the feature to other variants, see note at top of post.)
2nd, you need root.
3rd, you need Build Prop editor. < I suggest that one.
1) Open Build Prop Editor, go into edit mode, scroll down to very bottom where there are empty lines and paste this entry:
2) Hit Save.
3) Reboot the phone.
When you go into Settings/Sound, you should now see a new category. Instead of "Hi-Fi Quad DAC", you will instead now see "Sound Quality and Effects". When you go into THAT, you will see new DTS and the already-existing Hi-Fi Quad DAC settings. See attached screenshots below and the conversation that led to this discovery...
The person who first pointed out the problem later posted the solution.
EDIT: @TotallyAnxious has now added this capability to her excellent ANXIOUS V30 Magisk mod, starting with v167. Thank you! However, that mod is only guaranteed compatible with North America variants, even though it may work with others. These do-it-yourself instructions can be done by anyone with rooted V30/V30+/V30S with appropriate stock firmware. EDIT: RIGHT NOW ONLY CONFIRMED WITH US998 20F and newer, VS996 20i and newer, Hong Kong H930DS 20w and newer
Again, hopefully LG will fix this in future update so it's also available on unrooted stock firmware.
