In my search for a solution to disabling CABL on this phone, I wanted to take a look into all the LG hidden tests/settings. As the Verizon variant doesn't have this apk, I took it from an AT&T build, deodexed it and it seems to run fine on the VS980. I haven't been able to launch it from the dialer, but using the below will get you there. If you don't know what these tests or settings do, then you're better off leaving them alone, as there is the potential to mess something up.

Code:
am start -a android.intent.action.MAIN -n com.lge.hiddenmenu/com.lge.hiddenmenu.HiddenMenu

Thanks a lot !
I found this work on my VZW G2 ..Why VZW choose to hidden the phone test menu, so unconvenient.

I wonder if you can help me more about the APN MCC/MNC locked questions.

What is "CABL" and what is all in this hidden menu?? Can someone post a screen shot of it.

Thank you

No, it needs to be installed as a system app. As for the dialer code, it won't work because the corresponding broadcast intent wasn't built in the vzw ROM. If I have some free time I could do that, but it really is easy to launch it via command I listed above.

Could someone provide some detail on how this should be run? I downloaded the file and then the code above in my phone's terminal, but was told the file was not found.

put hiddenmenu.apk to /system/app
then set permission to еры file rw- r- r-
then reboot device
then do this using ADB
Code:
adb shell
su
am start -a android.intent.action.MAIN -n com.lge.hiddenmenu/com.lge.hiddenmenu.HiddenMenu

Voila :)

    Thank you for this tutorial. Finally got my Knock On back! For those noobs wondering, here is what I did: (NO PC NECESSARY)
    I put the HiddenMenu.apk in the system/app folder and permissions rw-r-r
    Then reboot
    Download and open Terminal Emulator app.
    First line type su, then hit enter
    Now type this
    Code:
    am start -a android.intent.action.MAIN -n com.lge.hiddenmenu/com.lge.hiddenmenu.HiddenMenu
    PAY ATTENTION TO ALL SPACES
    Hit enter and viola, hidden menu!

    Nevermind this worked.... anyone know how to "update touch firmware" from here?

    Yes, I just did it. Access the menu using the directions in the op. Then go to HW device test / Touch test / then Touch firmware upgrade...wait 10 seconds after doing it...done! Knock-on Restored!!

    I read every post and follow the directions. And I am super surprised that it work where everything else failed.
    Success on this ls980 Sprint after losing knock on.
