The PurpleDrake is a professional root tool that now works on all variants of the LG G3. It’s a fairly foolproof script that includes all the dependencies you’ll need for getting your phone rooted easily.

This PurpleDrake is a Lite version. That means it can only root your LG G3. If you are T-Mobile LG G3 owner, please use the full version of the PurpleDrake Tool, since it will not only root your device, but also install TWRP, and prevent your root checker from showing your phone as rooted!

For those who feel your LG G3 is not loud enough to hear the ringtone on a crowded place, here is a guide from XDA forum to increase the headphone and speaker volume.


  • A rooted LG G3. Check out our rooting tutorial.
  • Install a good root file explorer app from the market (such as ES File Explorer)
  • Text Editor

How to Boost LG G3 Volume:

  1. Open a root explorer app and navigate to the /system/etc/ folder.
  2. Here you will find the original volume configuration file for your phone. Backup the original “mixer_paths_qcwcn.xml” (D855) or “mixer_paths.xml” (D851) file by copying and pasting them to the external storage. You can later restore the original volume settings by restoring the files to the folder.
  3. Open “mixer_paths_qcwcn.xml” (D855) or “mixer_paths.xml” (D851) with a text editor.
  4. change this green value to your liking:imageimage


Now you should experience enhanced and louder speaker volume on your LG G3.

In case you feel the volume too loud for you, you can edit the volume values yourself.

Did you delete the LgHome.apk on your LG L70? Then look here.

Yesterday I accidently deleted my LGHome.apk file on my LG L70, after my phone rebooted, the only thing i saw was a black screen and i couldn’t do nothing, i could only receive call.

Finally after messing with my phone for a few hours I installed the LG launcher to get my phone back working.
