Hi Everyone,

if anyone is interested, you can get both aosp google dialer and people app to work on the G3. Here's how:

1. Download the zip
2. extract the files to your phone (sd card)
3. with a root explorer, copy them over to system/
4. set proper permissions (644) on both files
5. copy these files over to system/priv-app/ from system/
6. rename LGContacts.apk to LGContacts.apk.bak (or change the extension of the file to anything)

Blacked out dialer and contacts app - thanks for the findings, @Kameirus

The blacked out Google dialer is made by Thyrus here at XDA
And not sure who did the blacked out contacts/people apk..I found it in one of my phone modding folders

Install instructions are the same as above.

Wow thanks! I'll be curious to see if this works flawlessly for others before I try it myself. Those are the last two apps I need to change to get back to the AOSP feel, aside from "Settings" of course.

Did you guys use the files I provided? Did you rename it? The LGcontacts app to have different extension? It's important because it has the same package name as Google contacts and therefore Google 's contacts app won't show up.

for those who dont know..u need to create a shortcut activity for googlephone by using a launcher like nova..apex..etc
Well, thanks but I didn't need that and checked on stock launcher and they do show up both... Is it possible that it's due to different system languages? U can also try to rename the extension of the LG phone up (dialer), see if that works.

would not advise to rename lg phone app, as I did and got into an endless "com.android.phone" process stop. contacts app works though but phone app does not show on stock launcher.

Just install the google dialer with proper permissions and then hide the LG phone app in your drawer. Did this a week ago cause I missed my dialer from running PA on my G2. Also OP is that the 4.4.4 dialer? Cause android police had the older dialer up when I downloaded it. Had to rip the one outta the PA G2 rom I ran on my G2.

Also I am using nova launcher an do not have to create a shortcut. Just put the icon on my home screen and it opens up just fine.

So does this work? I got the Google dialer installed a few weeks ago but frankly hated it, could never get it to do what I wanted. Long press a contact to edit? No go. Plus all it did was launch the LG dialer in the end. If this fully replaces the LG dialer I Amy give it another try.

Phone shortcut didn't appear in the drawer for me, but I was able to add it to the stock launcher with "Activity Launcher" from the play store.

In the app, All activities -> Google dialer -> Phone (DialtactsActivity)

Any chance you got out of the infinite bootloop without having to flash the stock ROM? If you did let me know how. Thanks!

Yes, and it was a nightmare, took about 20 min. Reboot phone, and with one hand keep hiring the Ok button of the error message and with the other hand try navigating the menus one by one. Go to system /priv-app/.
Find LG phone app, lgteleservice or something like that, click it, install it, then I used room toolbox pro to convert it to user app and set permissions 644. Reboot and got out of loop. And then quickly renamed back the apk.
All the best and good luck.

This worked for me! All works good!!! I had some activities widget already on my F400s and it let me add the dialer.

Looks same as my Nexus 5 now! :) And finally got rid of the Korean on the stock dialer.

Happy! Thanks to the OP!

    On Nova, followed instructions, rebooted, and I have Contacts now in App Drawer but not Phone.

    I followed advice of others in this thread and created a shortcut using Nova for the Phone. Works fine; guessing the LG call screen is normal?

    (I started using Nova today and have no idea why I didn't do this sooner.)

    yeah, LG's in-call screen is normal. that's a 3rd apk, that i was not able to replace, it foreclosed as soon as a call arrived or you started a call.

    Uploading the Xperia stuff to box. All credits to the original developers. For home, I used the standalone app and the got the weather widget from the zip. Note: home occasionally fc's when I rotate the phone to landscape.

    Link: https://app.box.com/s/pygevdyisjtixeub790x

    Upload is done in about 10-15 minutes.

    Ps: I installed everything manually, there was no recovery when I installed them. They may not work with recovery, I never tried to flash them.
