So after owning g2 on att..we had same issue. Please disregard if its been posted. If you didn't know already here you go. This does not require root.

1. Go to the market. Download Launcher Pro
2. Don't open it. We're using it for a huge benefit it's always left a back door open for us devs..
3. Press on empty home screen to bring up widgets.
4. Scroll to find the activities in form of launcher pro icon
5. Press on It once It will bring up a huge hidden menu..
6. Scroll down to Home
7. Press home and scroll down to hidden menu themes provider (or the first hidden menu themes etc you see)
8. Press it once.
If you did this in the correct order it will bring a nice sweet blue icon on your home screen ..you can put it in a folder but keep it. Press on it to now have your theme picker.
9. Google LG world apk..download It and now enjoy your themes etc..

I hope this made you smile.
Peace.

Any chance for problems if rooted and modified with g3 tweaksbox? I was going to apply a theme, but don't want issues from the changes I made with xposed.

Gave it a shot and yes it does work with exposed. No issues yet.
If I remember right, it's the first "Theme" that shows up in that menu. It's not what the OP called it.

What themes are you talking about? I mean, you don't mean any cm themes do you.

Lg has themes available similar to like what Miui has but nowhere near as good. Most are pretty lame actually... probably why they dropped them from US varients, but there's a work around.
This topic should have probably been placed in the Themes and Apps forum, but here is some more detailed info on the subject.

I've tried a few. One for the g2 locked my phone up hard and made it totally unresponsive. Theme did stick after a battery pull and was fair at best. It was interesting to play around with for a bit but like i said, most are pretty weak.

Correction duly noted. Thank you. I posted off top of my head. I thought it said what I posted. But important thing is the process is quite painless.

I also add this is for version of sprint that does have the theme apk or home themes hidden. I don't know why. But this does not require root and is for stock Rom. Or out of box fix. Yes it can be moved to themes and apps if mods feel I've posted in error. Again just trying to help keep this sprint version level with the experience of the rest. The stock themes do suck. But the option is also great to have. Peace. And thank you all for your help.

Hope my post didn't come across as snotty. It wasn't my intent if it did ? and thanks for getting this over to the Sprint forums.
I agree, it's a cool option to have. This type of stuff is always fun to tinker with.
