Just got this phone yesterday! Used the Jelly Bean Easy Root method on XDA and got rid of all the bloatware. WARNING...once removed, you cannot get them back. Not even with a factory reset.

Got this baby looking and behaving like a Nexus...well, there are some minor differences. Like with the settings menu....white instead of black. Not the complete Holo look. But after installing Nova Launcher, it looks sexy and behaves great.

It's no Galaxy S4 or Xperia Z, but if you're looking for a nice 4.5" smartphone at a low price, you can't beat it. Waiting for custom roms now. :-)

Hey guys. Help me out. I updated my L9 to Jellybean 4.1.2, now alot of my stuff isn't working. Like I can't lock the phone, it wont unlock again, you have to reset and reboot it, so it's permanently on now, can't enable sleep screen.

Also, my camera doesn't even start up.

My google chrome doesn't start.

Some games does'nt start.

What can it be?



I thought it might be java. I'm sending it back but I'm still curios.

Thanks, and I'm in South Africa.

Man...thanks to the guys over at XDA, you can make this look and behave like a Nexus 4! True, there are no ParanoidAndroid or other customs but just need to follow the steps to root and install CWM.

You can easily use ES File Manager to change the boot animation and add a add blocking host file. You can even go all the way and replace the ringtones and notifications.

Once that's out of the way, install the JellyBe4n'ish theme and use root uninstaller to get rid of the bloat. I may wind up getting this after all. The price is just too good to pass up.

for $200 i think its worth doing the extra work for it.

you will have to:
1.Root your phone using Lelus method. (Search XDA)
2.Install Voodoo rootkeeper
3.Install CWM recovery. (Search XDA)
4.Partition Sd card using CMD (Easy)
5.Install Busybox and Link2sd
6.Install and use directory-bind.

for queries mail me at axemanin@gmail.com

I'm currently rooted on LG P769 USA T-mobile version, unlocked network, 10G firmware, Cool Droid login animation as well. Transferring all apps to sd is possible.

regards,

Axe

Practical Speed of HSPA+ is pretty close to the speed of LTE.

I have one and i love it. I have had mine for about 4 months now and i needed it due to my vision going bad. it has a bigger screen than my previous model (samsung galaxy s blaze) but a slower processor. I love it and i would recommend it to anybody who wants a dual core phone that has a decent size screen. (4.3 inches).
