lg-new-logo

You can find firmware for your LG device at a couple different site and today we will discuss of couple of them and ways you can identify which LG device you own. It is very important that you get the right firmware for your device. Lets say you have a LG V20 and you are looking for firmware well there are at least 5 different Model numbers for this device H910, H918, LS997, US996, VS995. The best way to figure out your model number is looking on the back of the device or under the battery and back cover. Another awesome method is to type in *#06# to your phone Dialer to get your IMEI or look in settings app and then about phone to find the IMEI that way. You can also get the IMEI from the back of the device under the battery its normally a 15 digit number like 356304044433231.

If you have your device IMEI number you can directly search LG server for firmware and more info on your device by using this link.

You need to change the XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX to your device IMEI number.

As you can see above there is a lot of great info in this XML file like the model number and even better for some device the URL for downloading firmware for this LG device based on the IMEI. This method of finding your device firmware is error proof since you found it with your IMEI you know for sure you have the right firmware straight from LG.

Some of the other site you can use to locate firmware for your device are listed below.

Whats your dream Android device?

Whats your dream Android device?

 

IMG_5182

Since we are talking about dream android devices we have to start with specs and hardware then we can move on to features. So here is my list of specs that would keep me using a phone for more then the 3 months i do now.

Screen Size:  I am the kind of person that watches lots of youtube on my phone so for me the sweet spots is a 5.5 screen like on the LG G4. I am also fine with 1080p but 4K would be awesome. Must have unbreakable glass.

Battery Life:  Super important to me because i am away from chargers most of me day so the battery on the Motorola Droid Turbo with 2 day battery life should soot my needs just fine. It of course must have turbo and wireless QI charging. Must have a removable battery.

Speakers:  For me the HTC One M9 with stereo front facing speakers is a true winner. This is the only way to go and I am super tired of cupping my hand behind the phone to be able to hear.

Camera:  For sure the winner in this section with the best camera is the Samsung Galaxy S6. I love this camera it shoots the best and fastest pictures and video in auto mode i have ever seen.

CPU: octo core snap dragon at 3.2Ghz with 4GB of ram. plus a 128GB internal storage.

 

SD Card: Must have a SD Card Slot so that i can increase my storage if i want to.

 

Features

1. Twist or double tap home to launcher camera. Really and camera short cut is fine with me but i like both of these

2. Finger print scanner to unlock the phone.

3. Motion gestures for screen shots. I love this feature on my Samsung devices.

4. Stock Android software from Google not skins

5. Built in theme engine that is also open for anyone to theme on.

6. No bloat ware only apps needed for the device to boot up. I can install any other app i want from google play store.

7. Knock on to turn on your screen with a double tap.

8. On screen home back and recent buttons.

9. Has to have flash light and tether toggles from the notification drop down.

10. works on all radio bands and carriers.

11. The reason i would want a unlocked bootloader is that it will make the longevity of the device last much longer and keep development happening.

12. Open Source will keep development coming with all the source code public.

I think with these specs I would be happen with my device for at least a year maybe 2. What would a device like this cost you may ask, well i dont really now but i would be willing to pay around $1200.00 for one. What would you pay for the ultimate smart phone and what features and specs would you absolutely have to get?

Its simple Just go to Towelroot.com and click on the upside down Y and the app will download to your device. Next you need to enable unknown source so that you can install the Towel Root app. Once install just click the Make it ra1n button shown aboove and you will have root access. Make sure you install Supersu & root checker apps to make sure root is working correctly.

Here is a video of me rooting my Galaxy S5 with the app

 

NOTE If the SU binary isnt updating correctly just reboot the device and check again.
