So far, LG has only pushed the Lollipop update to the G3 in Poland, but that won’t stop others from enjoying it. If you have the European model (D855), Skin1980 from XDA has a surprise for you.
He put together a flashable Zip that’s even rootable. You will need the TWRP recovery installed and you will need to do a factory reset. If this is something that interests you, hit the source link below for full instructions, and be sure to consider giving Skin1980 a donation because I’m sure this took a lot of work.
We had a glimpse of something very unique from LG last month, and they are now official. If you’re looking to make a deeper connection with your smartphone, then LG’s AKA (pronounced “AW-kuh”) is the phone for you.
There are actually four AKA’s to choose from…..Eggy, Wooky, YoYo, and Soul. Eggy is yellow and falls in love easily. Wooky is white and always speaks in slang. Soul is blue and loves beer and music. YoYo is pink and the only female in the group. She loves hamburgers and coca cola.
With LG finally releasing the LG G Watch R and adding to the choices for a round faced Android Wear device, buyers will also get some more new technology from LG. For the display, LG used Plastic OLED, or POLED, a technology that the company sees as very important to the future development of electronic devices. LG recently added a new page on their web site explaining some of the benefits of the technology and dropping some hints about how they see it being used in the coming years. Read more
Last month we showed you a Gameboy emulator that runs on Android Wear smartwatches, and today we have some more exciting news for classic game enthusiasts. A two minute clip from Youtube user “EpicLPer” shows an Android Wear smartwatch running a PlayStation emulator playing the game Croc. The emulator is called ePSXe, and seems to play pretty well on LG G Watch’s Snapdragon 400 processor.
It’s a pretty small screen to be playing a game that was meant for televisions, but it’s an incredibly portable way to play your favorite games if you’re feeling nostalgic. You can check out EpicLPer’s video past the break.

When LG announced the child-tracking Kizon smartwatch, we weren’t really sure what carriers would pick the wearable up. Thanks to an FCC filing earlier today, though, we’ve got a pretty strong hint that Verizon will be offering the smartwatch later this year.
The filing lists the device with the model number LG-VC100, and some information from the Kizon PC Reset Tool confirms that it should be a Verizon variant of the watch. Verizon hasn’t made anything official, but I think we can expect an announcement sooner rather than later.
