Punisher, 31 Mar 2015Can you check if screen mirroring on chromecast works properlyI don't have any devices to cast to, except a Laptop, but on using the app 'Mobizen' via internet, on Windows 7, I was successfully able to mirror the phone.
Do note that it still doesn't work offline via local network. I think they are behind on this issue but you can also try the app 'Weline'.
I should add that I didn't try USB method as it is 99% guaranteed to work and I'm using Connectify on PC to host a network.
ES File Explorer is awesome because it asks for root permission and then easily accesses the external SD card.

As for lollipop part i dont know how UI looks like for connection mode. But it must be almost the same. As for not detecting on auto you must go there in settings and mark that option. For ftp part. You cant transfer from pc to phone if that is on SD card. It cant be done. But that is only for SD card. I know that in Kitkat there is some ways you can transfer if that something comes from same map as original app. Lets say es file to es file but it must be the same map. However that doesnt work with wireless ftp. Now you can check if that is resolved in lollipop. But you can always transfer to internal memory which is very stable. More then MTP
Punisher, 02 Apr 2015I don't really understand the question. What is blocked? After lollipop upgrade : When i connect my phone to laptop through USB cable, its not showing "pc connection" notification to select mtp mode or lg pc suite mode in mobile..
I asked for any other methods is there to transfer files between mobile and laptop.. someone suggested to use airdroid and es explore over wifi.. Using es explorer app i am able to copy files from phone to laptop. when i copy laptop files to phones its throwing error something like blocking.

My BIGGEST gripes with the update being,
1. Apps take insane amount of space (system size grows with apps installed)
2. Memory management has gone bad (Dead Trigger 2 lagged like hell today)
3. Camera shutter sound is permanent (how lame can that be)
4. Sometimes, the lock screen misbehaves on MTP (repeatedly switches itself ON and OFF unless you unplug the USB)
5. Lock screen widgets removed (again, lame)
6. World clock home screen widget removed (another lame move)
7. Modified the APIs such that call recording has stopped working (though I somehow managed to get it working via unstable beta version of the app from skvalex)
But there are many improvements too, IMHO, that make them worthy of an upgrade. Most notably, there are under the hood enhancements that make the app faster to run, albeit a slow 'first time run'. Better notification system. There is much detail to glance in a single screen than what was possible before.
The rest can only be experienced on using it.

Use ftp instead wireless. There are plenty of apps out there. Airdroid, wifi transfer etc. I use es file explorer but its more complicated.
Asus is my favo brand as well, it's time to check for a new phone in June-July.
No update yet, a KitKat4.4.4. for D405 wud be good enuf.

It is not necessary that after every update phone becomes buggy and leggy. moto g get 2 updates to KitKat and lollipop but works great.
How cool is that
Must say its first time so long on 100%
Android27, 27 Mar 2015True, I see what you mean.
The FIRST OS is the best because, the optimizations are specific... moreAt that time lg o2x was the best phone with nvidia in the game. Adreno was still weak. But as i said froyo was good on that phone jusy froyo.
For L90 i dont think thay Lg have a clue how L90 is good value for the money from that series and if they do they made a misstake because of upcoming lg budget phones. You dont see ir on sprint, magna etc. They offer less. I will soon buy an Zenfone 2 when its released because of what you get for that money. Its a risky move because of intel as soc but i will give it a try. The reason why i will buy Z2 is because its future proof.
Punisher, 27 Mar 2015I dont think phones that comes with latest OS out from the box at launch are uograde to later ... moreTrue, I see what you mean.
The FIRST OS is the best because, the optimizations are specific ONLY to that particular device and furthermore, the exact model. So yes, it's true that the upgrade isn't THAT bug-free to begin with.
FYI, the Kitkat version was VERY similar to the G2, and thus the Lollipop version too, appears uncannily similar to the G3 interface. I think they just ported the ROM with a few customizations here and there. Maybe, to please old time users so that they would recommend new/potential users an LG offering (like the upcoming Magna, Spirit, Fino)
Still, because I'm staying in for the long haul, I'd prefer to stick to the latest update before finally considering a downgrade or a switch to CM12.
I find this Lollipop update a bit slow compared to the original Kitkat version. So if one is mulling over whether one should upgrade, then I suggest that one should not. Except for the cosmetics, there isn't any reason to upgrade.
Any other update related questions are welcomed.
I'm on 5.0.2
Oh, and BTW, I never knew you had the unfortunate opportunity to use the infamous Optimus 2X. Ah, I just can't push it out of my mind. That measly amount of RAM, Heating furnace like Nvidia chipset and last but not the least, horrible update cycle. I'm glad someone stole it. Frustration can only be transferred from one person to another.
Android27, 25 Mar 2015Hmmm...then you might not have had an update, yet. Why, what happened to your old LG phone ... moreI dont think phones that comes with latest OS out from the box at launch are uograde to later OS as it would be phone with out of box OS. Its just a makeover or remake of upgradet OS. Its not optimized in same way as newest released phone with latest OS out of the box. If you know what i mean. I had one Lg before it was optimus 2x. Yes it had 2 OS upgrade but it was toxic every way with every update and upgrade. That phone would stay at froyo as it was made for froyo from the beginning. The reason im saying this is that if something doesnt work with l90 lollipop. There is no guarantee that they will maintain it. Now if you buy for ex lg flex 2 that phone is already made from lollipop and other phones etc. This is something ive noticed with phones that i never thought of before. They are made for first OS with all gimmicks, widgets etc and all works for that OS. Now ig they upgrade OS that stop to work at 80% of cases. Because its made as remake OS
Android27, 25 Mar 2015Nope. Do a hard reset after updating to LP, or if you're on KK, then try restarting the phone.Thanks for advice,i will try it,but i am worried about that problem because i bought my phone two and a half months ago and this kind of problems are usual for older phones
Punisher, 23 Mar 2015No mine is d405 international unlocked.
Im not sure i will upgrade untill i see V20***b*** or... moreHmmm...then you might not have had an update, yet.
Why, what happened to your old LG phone ? I'm suspecing something terrible happened, or else, updates aren't that toxic.
I could've continued with my old ways, but I finally managed to jump the other side. Still, it wouldn't matter. Really, Lollipop would make not much of a difference except for eye candy (more on that later) so you're better off without taking the risk (if you are on root access)
Now that I'm done with backups and all that, I should update my comments regarding the update.
I used 'Superbackup' to create backups of nearly EVERYTHING. Calls, messages, contacts and even apps. The folder where the backup was parked, weighed in around a GB worth of data.
Tried updating via phone but unfortunately it ran into problems soon after the download finished. The update came to a halt within the first few seconds of the process with a strange 0x1111000 error message and so did my life. The process exited itself with a message that I'm on root access and hence, no updates for you.
A big punch to the face, if you consider how trivial the issue seems.
I gave it one more try by first unrooting via 'SuperSU' app (knowning that it still does not reset the LG RCT counter) hoping to get the update to working but strangely, it began downloading the garangutan file AGAIN !
I almost gave up but before doing so, for the sake of throroughness, I thought I should give it a last try, only this time using the LG Tool on my Laptop and NOT via phone. So this time around, the update weighed in around 1107mb and fortunately, IT WORKED !
So now I'm on Lollipop, however I still performed a factory reset just in case it ran buggy with all that data but no, everything went fine. I have a few observations though,
1. Swiping up from the bottom to access Quickmemo is GONE. (dunno of some new shortcut)
2. Tapping on time/date at the top notification bar doesn't takes you to its setting
3. Home screen rotation GONE
4. I miss this badly but swipe animation in lockscreen (old LG G2 style) is GONE TOO
5. An option to download one free dictionary, but who uses stock dictionary anyway
6. Lockscreen widgets GONE (well, that's bad)
7. Face unlock buried deep within settings (nobody should use it anyway)
8. Home screen swipe effect, the default one on Kitkat, GONE
9. Apps take longer to install, but quicker to launch
10. Keyboard upgraded with more customizations including swype
11. Sliding the volume sliders don't play the preview anymore (but play inside settings)
12. Notifications settings for apps under sounds added
13. Tapping battery icon under settings won't take you to stats (trivial)
There are many more settings that I'm discovering at the time of posting, but my GREATEST GRIPE is that they removed widgets for lock screen. I prefer using stock settings to a third party app. Why fix what's not broken ? Anyway, the UI is really something to experience. Much easier on the eyes, hence little to no distraction.
Except a few cosmetic changes, there isn't much of a difference in moving from Kitkat to Lollipop, though it is a bit early to predict. It is commendable that the update isn't as buggy as those who commented (on the D410 page) made it out to be, but I do not miss the 4.4.2 days much.
Hope this helps.
