Hello guys,
If you've installed a rooted image like I did, maybe you just noticed that the author decided to get rid of LG bloatwares. But some apps are really useful and I don't get why he removed them. I am indeed refering to FM Radio and Quick Remote (IR) apps.

So, I did a backup of the two apk from my latest clean install.
Attachments below. May not work with all variants (as I read that US carriers removed these apps because of money/rights?)

Hope it will be useful to some of you. Cheers! :)
P.S. don't hesitate to ask if you're searching for an apk. Glad to help.

stock LG Browser apk available at post #10
LG Health and Health Agent apk available at post #21

What's the point to change the DPI for this app? The display is perfect.
I only changed those settings with Chrome to get the tablet mode and tabs bar on the top.

Oh I see. And what did you get? Am not in that sort of thing, so I can't imagine what your system looks like and I must say, no idea to make Qremote fitting the original display. Good luck!

Have you figured how to install the browser on the Verizon variant?

Hey, I accidentally removed my Live Wallpaper Picker and was wondering if you have a version that will work with the H815 variant?

I don't think that's going to help, my friend. Verizon and some of the other US carriers typically ground one of the wires leading to the FM module, which literally diverts electricity away from it so that it won't even turn on - and I bet that's what Verizon has done here with their G4 as well. A build.prop edit won't change it. All you can do is crack your phone open, get out a soldering gun, and try to solder a new ungrounded connection yourself (Skill level: Adam Outler).

Some carriers do this so that you are required to use streaming apps for radio instead like Tune-in Radio or Spotify, which burns through your data plan and makes them more money. You aren't the only one upset about this. There are a lot of petitions online to get carriers to reverse this practice. One is here: http://freeradioonmyphone.org/
