LG G2 battery drain after Kit Kat upgrade (self.lgg2)
submitted 1 month ago by ravendmensah
I just updated my T-mobile to Kit Kat OTA and now that the update has installed, my battery life is terrible. Phone has been on for 30 minutes and it has dropped from 100% to 90%. For this phone, it is unusual. It says that my phone will stay on 3.5 hours. Is anyone else having this issue? Now I am regretting updating at all.

This is very weird, I tought Kitkat will give you more battery saving than older OS. So Im also installing this Kitkat update on my LGG2 and guess what? It drains my battery too lol. Now I want go back to 4.2.2, this Kitkat update is nonsense, 2x battery drain!

Same to me but i found a SOLUTION. Uninstall the LG weather theme (has a bug) and install the Weather and Widget app (set at settings not to use GPS for location), app is found on google play store.
Additional tip is to set battery save mode at settings - location. Battery is perfect after did that.
Go in settings, general, battery click on expected time remaining and it will give you a list of apps that has ate the most percentage of battery. Mine was google play services. I did a factory reset. Dont update the google maps because that seemed to be the cause of my problem. Hope it helps
Thanks all for your suggestions.
I turn off GPS and battery back to normal. Why GPS is so hungry ?
Do you have hangouts installed and do u use it? My battery was AWESOME until I started using hangouts frequently. Google play services just raped my battery. after uninstalling hangouts my battery is mostly back to normal.
vzw stock Rom 422 xposed. I use greenify on some apps and was getting about 30 hrs total life with 3+ hours screen on time before installing/upgrading/using hangouts and about 12-15 after. Google play services would consistently be responsible for 40% battery consumption with 5000+ wakes. the next closest would be android system with 500 wakes and 25 to 30% battery...
this is all with the same usage habits.
imo hangouts and other Google apps destroy battery life. after uninstalling hangouts my battery life immediately returned closer to normal

Thanks for your suggestion!
I'm afraid that I'm afraid of screwing up my ZL's apps' configurations. Haha
I don't want the update to destroy my satisfaction with this device.
I'm just being paranoid. Ha. I'll update later n.n
Btw, have you seen an improvement in battery life? How about RAM management? I had to use a tweak to make the system really use the 2GB of RAM, before, it closed too soon/fast any minimized app. You might have not noticed this, but you can try this: pick 2 folders containing a similar amount of data of some 500MB each, of audio and video respectively, compress them with 2 different file managers (Es and Root Explorer, for example) use one for each folder. Then open a site with your browser, then open NFS MW and play some races till you see the notification for the compression jobs telling you the compression is done.
If you are playing and no notification shows up in some minutes, it means the jobs were killed by the system. Also, you can minimize the game and see the progress of the jobs from time to time. Minimizing should not reload the launcher.
This all will take you less than 10 minutes and the performance of the game should not be affected. If the jobs were killed by the system you'll see a .tmp file in the folder where there should be the compressed folders. This will mean that the system can't handle that multitasking, that it's not well configured and the 2GB of RAM are not being used as they should.
Please, try this. If the jobs got killed I'll help you with the tweak. Then you'll see real multitasking.
*NFSMW cause other games are too lightweight.
Tweak and Customize LG G2 with G2 TweaksBox and G2 Xposed Modules

There was a time when rooting only allowed installing apps that require root access. System modding on Android used to mainly achieved with a custom mod or ROM and to flash them, we had to install a custom recovery on our device. With the passage of time, custom development activities in Android have seen radical changes. Our developers keep coming with new ways of customizing Android devices.
The most striking piece of development that has changed the way we can tweak and customize Android devices, was the introduction of rovo89′s Xposed Framework. This custom framework takes advantage of root access on Android devices and with the help of a module, modifies it through a placeholder framework to achieve desired effect.
Xposed Framework can be seen as a panacea for Android devices that can fulfil all your wishes. If you are an LG G2 owner and have already rooted your phone, Xposed can open the doors of customization to you. Today, we’ll see how you can tweak and customize LG G2 with G2 TweaksBox and G2 Xposed modules. The list of tasks these two Xposed modules can do on your LG G2 will surely overwhelm you.

LG G2 4.4 mod adds 4k and 720 120 FPS video! (self.lgg2)
submitted 1 month ago* by BERLAUR
Tested UHD -- it works! Output is 3840x2160. 40mbps. VLC doesnt like it, had to use media player classic to play.
For those lucky enough with the 4.4 update you can get the download here. This would also mean the the LG G2 is the only smartphone with 4k recording and OIS
With a bit of luck we might get the extra features from the LG Pro 2 ported to!
You can see some sample footage here:

This is the first time I've seen 120fps video on my 120hz monitor.
Oh my god.
Oh my god...
Why the * isn't this a standard? It's so smooth!

There's plenty of debate on frame rate. My answer as a vfx guy is that the professional movie pipelines simply aren't ready to do it yet. But dont worry, I'm sure by Transformers 7 we'll be seeing a High Frame Rate Imax 3D, at least for those types of movies.
I personally prefer 24 for narratives BECAUSE it's worse (hear me out). When I watch a movie at like 48 or something higher it feels like I'm watching a live event.. like I'm seeing the actors on a stage. This is great for sports, but I feel that it hurts narratives. I think having that distance from the movie, in it's imperfection, really helps to let your brain take over and aids suspension of disbelief.
That said. Yes 120fps is better in all ways aside from helping me get into a movie for any reason other than the "theme park ride" aspect of it.

What Is TWRP Recovery & How To Install & Use It On Android Devices [Guide]
by Haroon Q Raja on May 04, 2013
Till just over a year back, ClockworkMod (aka CWM) was the go-to custom recovery for pretty much every mainstream Android device. Things have changed a lot since, with a newer player entering the game and gaining a lot of critical acclaim, as well as a huge user base. TeamWin Recovery Project – or TWRP for short – is a fully touch-based custom recovery that was initially developed for Nexus devices, but has since been made available for countless other smartphones and tablets as well, in form of both official and third-party builds. Just like we took you through a very detailed tour of ClockworkMod recovery and its features, we’re going to guide you through all the features of TWRP right after the jump.
