The LG Volt LS740 comes with loads of Virgin or Boost Mobile branded apps that basically hinder streamlined user experience. These apps are also commonly referred to as Bloatware / Crapware.

Here is an app that will help the Volt LS740 users in getting rid of all the carrier’s crap on the phone.

Downloads:

Apps that are safe to Remove:

– SmartShareProvider
– Picasa Uploader
– Lumen Toolbar
– Drive
– Google Play Books
– Google Play Games
– Google Play Movies
– Google Play Newsstand
– Google+
– Hangouts
– Swype

I’ve tried this on my phone, it works like a charm. If you are finding a way to get rid of the bloatware, then you might try it.

An LG L90 work also works for LG Volt LS740. The steps to access it are as follows.

Note: This assumes you’ve already rooted manually or with Towelroot and know what adb/fastboot is.

How to enable fastboot for LG Volt LS740:

First, backup your LG Download mode (laf) with this code, so you can use LG Flash if necessary.

  • adb shell
  • su
  • dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/laf of=/sdcard/laf.img.

Run the following code to zero out laf:

  • dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/laf
  • adb reboot

For whatever reason, you won’t be able to access fastboot via "reboot to bootloader" like most phones, so you’ve got to do a key combo:

  • Power Off
  • Unplug USB
  • Hold Volume Up
  • Plug in USB

You delete the laf partition, which forces fastboot mode and takes the place of download mode.

IF you want to return the phones download mode

  • fastboot flash laf laf.img

You can skip flashing the laf.IMG back before exiting fastboot if you wanna leave fastboot mode enabled instead of download mode. But be careful as without download mode you might not be able to recover from a brick.

So think about what you feel is more useful. In fastboot you cannot flash /system/ back because it is too large.

Disclaimer: This is what i did and it worked. Try this at your own risk, always assume anything you do on your phone will result in a brick and it will be unrecoverable.

This Stock LG Volt LS740 ZV4 Firmware / Rom has all the previous stuff, deodexed, zipaligned, etc, but now this one is lightly debloated and has gapps updated, even more exciting, now it updates the radio and the kernel (or at least it should) and you shouldn’t have to flash superuser. I haven’t had the time to test it but I’ve been really excited to release it to you all, so as with any other ROM, flash at your own risk and I cannot stress enough to make a backup of your current partitions. Enjoy.

Stock LG Volt LS740 ZV4 Firmware / Rom Download:

This ROM is rooted, deodexed, zipaligned, init.d enabled.

In case Superuser doesn’t work after flashing, here’s a flashable zip
