G4 camera mod 60fps+100%qualtiy+flash mod

LG did great with camera of its 2015 flagship device, the G4, but did you know you can take it to the next level all by yourself. The road’s not easy, you will have to install TWRP recovery on your G4 first, and then install the .zip file we’ve provided below. Of course, we have got the links to help you with TWRP recovery installation (see the guide below) but before that, let’s talk what improvement we’re talking about here.

Even though LG has upped a level in the camera department with G4, it still misses out on few basic features. Thankfully though, developers around the world have managed to overcome that haul as well. LG G4 has a shortcoming when it comes to the FPS rate while recording videos. The Full HD recording is done at yesteryear’s 30 FPS rate, but with this hack, you will be recording at modern 60 FPS rate. There are certain additional updates in the mod which increase the bit-rate and the photo quality to 100%. Also, you will be able to use the camera even after battery level drops to less than 15% (default), up to 5%. Credit for the mod goes to Pfeffernuss, thanks!

Note: The mod increases the file sizes of videos by a large amount. Keep that in mind.

LG G4 Better Camera Mod

Let’s see how to improve LG G4’s camera.

Downloads

The name of each mod says wat the mod does. All support 60 FPS recording, while bit-rate differ in each one. Install one of your choice. And, when you want to remove/uninstall the mod, and want the LG’s own settings back, simply install the revert to stock file.

Supported models

  • LG G4, model no. H815
    Why only H815 model no.? Well, you need TWRP recovery for this and only H815 has it available, because LG provides bootloader unlock for only this one, which is a must for TWRP installaiton.
  • Don’t try on any other variant of G4.
  • Don’t try on any other Android device.

Installation Instructions

Warning: Warranty may be void of your device if you follow the procedures given on this page. You only are responsible for your device. We won’t be liable if any damage occurs to your device and/or its components.

Backup necessary stuff. In case your device is wiped off while following the guide below, it’s good to have a backup of contacts, photos, videos and other files already saved on PC. Follow the instructions from #9 if you already have your device rooted.

  1. Unlock bootloader of LG G4. That’s a must, as without this, device remains locked by LG and you the user cannot install TWRP recovery. You will also get to install ADB and LG drivers in that guide, so we will skip the drivers part here.
  2. Install TWRP Recovery on LG G4.
  3. Download the camera mod of your choice from above. Better download all the mods, and the stock restore file.
  4. Connect your G4 and transfer all the downloaded files to your G4.
  5. Reboot into recovery mode.
    1. Open the command window at the location where you have the TWRP recovery. For this, while holding shift key, right click from mouse on the white space inside the folder. You’ll get a pop-up as shown below. Select the option: Open command window here
      open command windows here
    2. A command (cmd) window will open up. Now, copy the command below and paste it in command window, and then hit Enter key.
      adb reboot recovery
  6. Once you’re into TWRP recovery, choose “Install” from main menu and then select the mod file you want to install (that you transferred in step 4). Do a ‘Swipe to Confirm Flash’ at bottom to install the mod.
  7. Once done, go back to main screen using the Home button at bottom left, and then tap on System > Reboot.

You are now having a modded camera for LG G4 , enjoy 60fps recording!
