In my LG-Optimus 4X after updated to JB 4.1.2 facing one problem with Display brightness.

Sometimes automatically brightness goes 100% after few seconds later coming to customized percentage(30%).

This problem occurs me sometimes suddenly an especially in locking or unlocking the phone using power key.
And then during call disconnecting times.

So please provide me a solution for this problem. ?

System Settings -> Wireless & Networks -> (More) -> Mobile Networks -> Use only 2G networks

To all my 4X HD friends that have GPS issues. You need to edit the gps.conf file and set the radio to STANDALONE...Lock times on Assisted GPS took up to 5 minutes, but on standalone it takes seconds! Mine came from korea and the gps conf had a bunch of european server information and I'm in the USA so I edited everything out except for north america.

If battery drain is an issue you need to uninstall the bloatware on the device. Get rid of anything google or LG that you aren't using because I left my phone on airplane mode overnight and the battery dropped 60%! After getting rid of apps I don't need the battery doesn't drop in % at all overnight.

All in all I'd say this phone kicks some serious A for $300. I hope LG will give a JB 2.2 update but for now I'm happy even though I had to do tweaking to get everything working nicely.

> In reply to ramyHR @ 2013-05-16 13:30 from ScKF - click to readThank you Rami for reporting this back, could you please tell me how to switch from 3G to 2G. is it from the hidden menu?. I really wish that LG fix that as soon as possible because this has something to do with the original functionality of the phone. Phone is there to make calls, so the problem of that the other party stops hearing us during a call is a catastrophic thing.

After few days working only on 2G networks, my phone calls are normal. No breaking the connection. I guess since the JB update, phone got too sensitive when switching from 3G to 2G duribg calls. No choice but to wait another update hoping it will fix things. Untill then, 2G + WiFi will do the work for me! :)

its part of the player and if they left it out or broke it you need to hope they fix it in a future update.

Download 'LG Supporting Tool' from www.lg.com or www.cnet.com
1. After installing lg supporting tool connect the mobile with the usb cable selecting lg pc suite
2. Start LG Supporting Tool
3. Wait for the tool to detect your mobile
4. Click on check upgrade
5. After finishing the upgrade checking Click on 'Start Upgrading' with a big pink label
6. It takes about one and half hour to complete upgrading depending on your internet speed

Caution: Backup all data and remove the memory and SIM card before upgrading. And do not disconnect it while upgrading.

So my jellybean 4x refused to play FLAC files with the default music player. It used to do it just fine with ICS but no more.

How are you dealing with it, other than PowerAmp? Are there any free apps or codecs that we can download to make FLAC work again? How about a port of old music player?

> In reply to HellPhoenix @ 2013-05-13 18:01 from Limy - click to readwel based on the info that is out so far 4.3 has nothing to offer but preformance improvements for people with a snapdragon 600/800 core which we dont have.
it is so far looking like a verry minor update even more so then 4.2



game lag is the fault of game devs that are plain lazy this is not a problem with the lg 4.03 rom and the games that lag can be counted on 1 hand.

video recording is fine for me so you must be doing something wrong. update your rom maby ?

web browsing not smooth are you kidding me? its flawless and flash is crap thats not android fault blame adobe and there crap support.
i use chrome and dont need flash at all.

slow response to screen rotation is actualy a android feature to prevent it switching to fast.
and its only half a second so if that really bugs you then you need to take a chipp pill.

it is NOT battery hungry you just like many others fail to understand the limitations of a modern quad core smartphone.
you can put on any rom in the world and it will NOT get more battery efficient because thats not possible.

and and so on is uselesss so far you havent made a single point that stands.
and yes i read you comment its just irellevant.

the fact that a phone can run software doent meen it shoult or that its better.

just enjoy 4.03 for what it is and if you dont buy another phone :)

> In reply to pino @ 2013-05-13 15:51 from iJe8 - click to readThe 4.3 isn't even introduced and you talk about it as if you were sleeping with it every night for a year.

There is a lot of potential to improve 4.0.3 ,here are some of basic ones(put the other aside):

-4.0.3(mine is v10e) lags like hell in 3D games.
-Video recording sucks in almost any situation (except outdoor with prefect daylight!)
-Web browsing isn't smooth specially with pages with flash ads.
-Slow response to screen rotations.
-battery hungry
And so on...

And i said even phones with 512mb ram and 1ghz single core are compatible with android 4.3 it shows that this version is really optimized with resources. did you even bother yourself to read my comment??

> In reply to HellPhoenix @ 2013-05-13 15:39 from pTii - click to readwhy? does it need it ? no
does it offer new features that are usefull to 4x hd users? no
does it make the phone faster? highly unlikely.
does it use less resources ? no
does it make the battery last longer? no

there is no point in it just like theres barely a reason to install 4.1 and 4.2 if you think different proof me wrong with facts if not accept that 4.03 on the 4x hd is a insanely stable and fast rom even with 2 cores disabled and is better then the direct competitors specialy for the price.

Beside, even phones with 512mb ram and 1ghz single core are compatible with android 4.3 so i think it will be a worthy update if 4x receives it.
