WOW. Have fun arguing with Verizon's world class clowns CS Reps. You'll probaby have to call 5 times before a supervisor zero's out your cost for another new G4.

Sorry man, this sucks.

Thanks. Actually, they are shipping me another, overnight. Hope it makes it all the way to me this time. I just hate having to wait yet another day.

Got the Leather Back VZW. Because I like the leather look and feel. I Came from HTC EVO, then went to Note 3, to G3 (love this device) and my G4 arrives today (Yea me!)
Here is a no bake cake recipe.

What You'll Need:

1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 (8-ounce) containers frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided
1 cup confectioners' sugar
14 whole chocolate graham crackers
1 (13-ounce) jar chocolate hazelnut spread (like Nutella)
What To Do:

Line a 9- x 5-inch loaf pan with plastic wrap, overlapping sides of pan.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, 1 container whipped topping, and confectioners' sugar until smooth; set aside.
Break graham crackers into sections and gently spread hazelnut topping on one side. Place a single layer in pan, breaking as necessary to fit pan. Spread whipped topping mixture evenly over hazelnut and repeat 5 more times with remaining graham crackers and ending with whipped topping mixture. Cover with overlapping plastic wrap and freeze at least 4 to 6 hours.
Invert cake onto platter and remove plastic wrap. Frost entire loaf with remaining container whipped topping. Refreeze 1 hour, or until ready to serve. Let sit out 10 to 15 minutes before slicing.

Favorite color is orange, and my favorite song......thats a hard one, there are so many great songs, I'll get back to you on that.

Ugh this had to get dragged into the forums? Bad enough I have to see these on Facebook

My co-worker is having the same issue, I just told him to switch over to Hangouts for SMS.


I use 8SMS. I love it because I can dark theme it and have quick reply/view.




Thanks. The empty box was delivered here. It was stolen en route.

Who would deliver an empty box? You can go as far as finding out the delivery guy (always has same route) and get him fired. Do you live in a single house or an apt type building? If you live in an apt type building, I bet someone saw the delivery guy and signed for it, stole the phone and put the empty box outside your door.

Fed-ex delivered the empty box to our business. It had paperwork and bubble wrap in it, but I could tell the moment I picked it up that something was wrong. Someone had stolen the phone and taped it back up.

Man, this is getting ridiculous, but is usually caused IMO by low wages and a desire to get rich quick! They can sell that G4 on the black market for $500 cash easy. That's probably what they make in a month sorting boxing or packing trucks for FedEx!

figure I'll throw this in here to get some more eyes on it... http://forum.xda-developers.com/g4/help/best-store-to-import-h815-assistance-t3126761/

looking to possibly import a european H815 and looking to get the best deal possible... with some decent shipping. ebay and amazon are full of H815s but it seems many.. maybe all are the asian variants and not european. and many of the stores overseas don't ship to USA.. or if they do it's all very expensive.

2 possible sites I've found so far:

It's cheaper than Clove here, and is stated to be the EU version:

I keep finding new cool things with this phone. Probably because I'm new to LG, and everyone else already knows these :laugh:

When the screen is off, slide down on the screen (and hold) and it will show the time and status bar, while keeping the rest of the screen blank :good:

Yeah i knew that already and it's amazing feature. It let us see the time without having to unlock the phone ^^

This is what I loved about my S4 that they didn't put in my S5 which was the hand wave to give time/notifications

Why is everybody saying that the G4 has lagg? Is this true?


Verzonden vanaf mijn iPhone met Tapatalk

Everyone? Lol. My G4 has zero lagg. People just fill their phones with thrash and 1000000 apps running in background and then they say it's lagged, of course... lol.

    Hiya guys,

    I've been back from vacation for a few weeks, and we've been hard at work on root/unlock ever since.
    Don't worry, we haven't run off with the devices you guys provided for us.

    Currently, we've found a few exploits that lead to root - the trouble is finding the simplest one that works across all variants and is the most 'trivial' in terms of patchability.
    The reasoning for that is we'd rather save the easy roots for the first few OTAs, as they'll get patched nearly immediately, and keep the more complex ones for later when LG slows down their OTA cycle.

    All of our dev phones have root currently, so we're able to play around with root ideas without any issues.

    Regarding bootloader unlock, we're still on track for a global unlock for all G4 devices. That's still the plan, no changes there.

    Our current task is figuring out how to unbrick the phone should our exploit fail and land the phone in QHSUSB mode. If anyone has the emmc programmer files from LG for this, please PM me or autoprime.
    Other than that, I might need to solder some magnet wire to the EMMC pins for recovery in case we brick in the process of trying the unlock.

    Anyway, I'll try to answer questions as much as I can, but remember I have to be vague so LG (who's undoubtedly reading these forums) doesn't get any ideas and send over a forced OTA to patch something before we even release it... that'd be a giant bummer.

    Thanks!

    I sort of understand where you're coming from as the attitudes you describe are certainly found sometimes here on XDA, but I don't think the guy asking above sounded entitled or demanding. It's been several weeks since there's been a single word on any progress and so people are curious about where the devs are at. All of jcase's recent activity and tweets are about his HTC unlock, so has he just moved on? And we've heard nothing from the other team working on an unlock and a lot just want to know if they're even still working on it. Have they tried to find root and failed so they moved on and gave up? Are they still actively looking? Have they found something that might work for public release and they're just testing it out? People just want to know and so they asked, no harm done.

    I'm buying a new phone this week. I'm about to sink $600 into something which is a lot of money and root is a big factor of that decision. Asking for a simple update on whether or not devs are even still working on it is not out of line. Yes XDA is has its share of entitled and rude users, but just as worse are those who snuff out and stifle any conversation whatsoever any time it is brought up in any thread. Forums only survive when respectful conversation is allowed to occur.

    I don't generally give status updates, I have not stopped looking at the G4.

    DON'T OTA

    going to post this once... please spread the word into the other G4 subforums and any related posts anywhere.

    I'm not sure if this is cause for alarm... but just putting the warning out there... based on viewing the latest USCC and T-Mobile files... these recent OTAs for USA carriers seem to be implementing "antirollback" which means you can never "go back" to a lesser version. To simplify things... fresh out of the box all of your phones were at "0" and now after the OTA they're at "1". Both the TMO and USCC KDZ file's are based on the OTA which is a "1" so there's no concern of flashing an older KDZ by mistake... at least for now. Not sure what will happen with future updates.

    Can only confirm this on the TMO H811 and USCC US991... Still waiting on Sprint users to grab the OTA URL or zip name for me so I can inspect that... but I suspect all of the recent OTAs from AT&T, Sprint and Verizon also used the "1" update. The European/Asian/Etc variants still seem to be using the "0" version.. even after the recent updates. [Not every OTA will bump up the "version"]

    I can't say what this means as a whole just yet... Maybe nothing at all. But perhaps for those who wish to stay at that fresh "0" for now... try your best to avoid the OTA update. I know the intl phones can disable updates but this option has been removed in USA variants. There are talks of an app that allows you to disable apks on your phone... I haven't used it myself but perhaps for those who want to maybe block the OTA app (LGDMSClient.apk)... worth checking out. This is said app: http://forum.xda-developers.com/android/software/debloater-remove-carrier-bloat-t2998294
    apks to attempt to disable:
    /system/priv-app/LGDMSClient/LGDMSClient.apk (not in all phones)
    /system/priv-apps/LGUpdateCenter/LGUpdateCenter.apk

    Again.. I don't really know what any of this means just yet... just reporting what I do know. Spread the word.
    And for those who were forced to OTA.. or saying this post has come too late.. everyone knows to never ever OTA.. and the app to disable OTA has been around for a bit now. I'm sorry but..

    Cross fingers and hope I'm wrong :fingers-crossed:

    Phones with "v1" status confirmed:
    H811 10H
    LS991 ZV5
    US991 10C
    VS986 11A

    Here's another thread with more info on potentially blocking the OTA without root http://forum.xda-developers.com/g4/help/how-to-prevent-updates-g4-t3148650/

    Hope you had a fantastic vacation and I think I speak for everyone here on a big THANK YOU on this update. It's something we needed because some people are tearing each other apart like starved wolves here lol

    Continue to do your thing (and @autoprime) and (the majority) of us will still wait patiently:)

    Thanks and have a great day!
