There may not be much in the way of custom ROMs for the LG G3, but thanks to a developer on XDA, there is still a great app for customizing the stock ROM. From changing the LED notification light, to the status bar icons, to the LG Launcher, there’s tons of customization options to check out (the full version does cost $1.49, fair warning). To get this to work, you need to root the LG G3, install the XposedMod installer, then download the G3 Tweaksbox app from the Play Store and customize away.

Without further ado, here’s how to get it all set up.

I. Root the LG G3

    • Check with the developer, but I don’t believe it works with 5.0

            And the model is AT&T D850

          • Unfortunately it looks like the program isn’t working with Android 6.0 so you’ll have to check with the developer to see if he has a new one. Sorry good luck!
