How to Root LG G3! [All U.S Variants]


It's finally here! After many people asking where the root method is for the Sprint LG G3 or any other U.S LG G3 variant it finally came out thanks to IOMonster and the team! Root allows you to get "admin" access to your phone. Without being rooted you are extremely limited, even with an Android phone. 

Root will allow you to install custom ROMS like Cyanogenmod, AOKP, Paranoid Android, and many other ROMS. You can also use root apps like Titanium Backup that allows you to backup and restore your app + app data, I use this app every time I get a new phone! 

Follow the simple guide below to root your Sprint LS990 or any other U.S LG G3 variant! 

1. Go into Settings > Security > and check mark "Unknown sources". 

2. Download Stump-v1.0.0.apk to your phone using the link below.

Download Stump-v1.0.0.apk

3. Install "Stump-v1.0.0.apk" by tapping on it. You can install a file manager app from the Play Store to find it. If you downloaded the apk directly to your phone it will be located in your "Download" folder. 

4. Open up the installed Stump app and tap on "Grind". 

5. When it says "Reboot to root", reboot your phone. 

6. Download and install SuperSU from the Play Store using the link below. 

Download SuperSU

7. Open up the SuperSU app and update anything with "Normal" if asked.

8. Congrats, your LG G3 is now completely rooted. Enjoying flashing ROMS, using root apps, and using your LG G3 to its fullest!

LG G3 Unboxing & First Look!

Check Out The Video Below!

With all the recent LG G3 videos coming out and all the positive things I kept hearing about the LG G3 I couldn't resist and headed to the store and bought the LG G3. I was most excited about the Knock Code and the QuadHD (4K) display. 

What's Included:
  • LG G3 (obviously)
  • 3000 Mah Battery
  • MicroUSB 2.0 Cable
  • Wall Charger
  • Manuals
  • Sim Card

How to Enable Immersive Mode on any Android App! [Root]

Check Out The Video Below!

With devices like the Nexus 5, Nexus 4, Moto X, and others that have software keys it's great since you can modify them to your advantage, but sometimes they just get in the way. They take up screen real-estate when you need it all. There are many times when I wish both the status bar and the software keys would just disappear, luckily for us Google has created a nice way to do that with certain apps. 

However not all apps are enabled to give you immersive mode (fullscreen). Luckily for us we can now enable "Immersive Mode" on any Android application, even the launcher if you want. While with MOD works with just about every rooted Android device it doesn't make much sense using it on an Android device like the Galaxy S5.

The Galaxy S5 doesn't have software keys and only has a small status bar that may get in the way from time to time. Devices that include software keys is where this MOD will make a true difference. 

Google Play Edition Android 4.4.4 ROM for Galaxy S4! GT-i9505/T-Mobile/AT&T/Verizon/Sprint

Check out the Video Below!

Today we're taking a look at the pure Android Google Play Edition ROM for Galaxy S4 GT-i9505, T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint variants. This ROM is based off the latest Android version, Android 4.4.4. This ROM is 100% stock, just like a Nexus device so you don't have to deal with Samsung's bloatware and useless features. 

Google Play Edition Android 4.4.4 has everything working including the camera, data, WiFi, and bluetooth. This ROM will give you a nice boost in storage space when comparing it to a Touchwiz based ROM. This ROM also comes rooted with SuperSU! 

Paranoid Android 4.4.4 ROM for Galaxy Nexus! GSM/Verizon/Sprint

Check Out the Video Below!

Paranoid Android 4.4.4 KitKat ROM is out for Galaxy Nexus GSM, Verizon, and Sprint This seems to be the final version for the all the Galaxy Nexus variants. This version is a very stable version that includes little or no bugs at all! 

This ROM includes the CyanogenMod Showcase, that allows you to theme your phone with more detail. It allows you to pick and choose what parts you want themed and what parts you don't. For example if you only want the boot animation and icons themed, you can! 

Paranoid Android for Galaxy Nexus also includes the nice immersive mode that hides the status bar and navigation key. To keep using the phone in this mode all you do is use the PIE control by swiping up from the bottom of the screen. 

XtreStoLite ROM for Galaxy S5! Debloated & Light

Check Out the Video Below!

XtreStoLite ROM for Galaxy S5 G900T, G900F, G900I, G900M, G900W8, G900L, G900S, and G900H is a very debloated light Touchwiz ROM. As usual we always get useless apps, add ons, and widgets from Samsung that we never end up using. We may end up using it once in a while when you want to impress your friends, but never on a daily basis. 

Luckily for us, XtreStoLite ROM is a light weight ROM that removes all the useless features and leaves the essentials. If there are any features that you really need you can easily install it from the Play Store. 

Junk like KNOX, a whole bunch of Samsung apps, and a sizeable amount of widgets all leave this ROM at around only 500mb. Touchwiz ROMS are usually around 1.3-1.5GB, that's a SOLID amount of storage you're getting back! 

Minimalism Icon Pack for Android! 600+ HD Icons & 14 HD Wallpapers

Check Out the Video Below!
Well it's been a while since I did a icon pack review so let's start it back up with Minimalism icon pack for Android! This icon pack is a simple look that are squared shaped. Minimalism icon pack supports all the popular launchers including ADW, Apex, Action, Aviate, Go, Holo, Nova, and Smart. 

There are currently over 600 HD icons available and for the icons that aren't supported they don't look out of place since they still have that square look. You can also request icons to be supported using the included Minimalism app. 

The app also includes 14 HD wallpapers that you can apply to your launcher, allows you to preview all the supported icons, contact the developer, and give the developer feedback on how his icons are doing. Overall there are a solid amount of icons supported that all look clean and simple.
