If you remember, I shared the LG UI 3.0 home launcher app and AccuWeather widget from the Optimus G. And now we are back with the latest version of the LG Home launcher ported to other Android devices. The new home replacement launcher is from Optimus G Pro, the latest flagship from the same brand.
The launcher from the Optimus G is a bit different from its older version and to some extent it reminds of the Xperia Z launcher, especially when it is in edit mode. The launcher supports 7 homescreens that can be embellished with the widgets and shortcuts of your choice. It also supports themes which can be downloaded from our link below.
On the top of the homescreen, you have a static Google voice and web search bar and a + icon that is used to edit/add widgets to the screen. The AccuWeather widget from the Optimus G Pro further enhances the beauty of the launcher.
Besides, we also have a bunch of new live wallpapers from the Optimus G Pro that can be installed as normal Apk files. Make sure your device is either on an ICS or Jelly Bean firmware.
(Inside the weather folder, you’ll see a file “WeatherMultiCPbin.apk”. Copy this to “system/app” directory using root browser. The main weather app can be installed normally).
LG G2 Lockscreen for All Android Devices
How to Install
Download all files from above and copy them to a single folder. Extract the zip file and then copy this folder with Optimus G launcher and widgets to your device. Install the apk files. Please be noted that to make the launcher and weather widgets to work, you must have a rooted device. If the installation of the launcher app fails via normal method, you will have to push the launcher and weather apk files to system/data directory on your device. You can do it using a root file manager. When the files are copied, fix the Permissions to rw-r–r–.
If you do not know how to fix Permissions on Android devices, read this tutorial. You can also refer to this guide to get it working.

The “LG G2 Lockscreen for All Android Devices” link leads to “Root LG G2 on the Latest OTA Update [Verizon/ AT&T/ Sprint/ T-Mobile]” page, so where I can find the Lg G2 lockscreen???
hello, i am a luky owner of a lg optimus g pro. but it’s really too big for my hand. so i’m thinking to pass to s4. but i hate touchwiz… can i install the entire ui of lg g pro on s4? and also the accuweather app with all the themes? pls reply soon. i have to pick a decision and give a reply to someone who is interested in my lg g pro. thank u very much. 🙂
Hi Amanda, Galaxy S4 is a good device but TouchWiz really irritates. If you are looking for new device and also LG interface, I strongly recommend you to get an LG G2. I bought it a week ago and among all my devices, including Nexus 5, Note 3, HTC One and S4, it’s the best. 🙂
Yes, i know as well lg g2. But a mobile of wich u cant remove battery its almost a minus… but it only this. Over the others aspects i know it is better. And also in estetics. It’s mayor. But… i dont know… i love so much also s4… and i would like to experince its use at least one time. I almost change a phone on every 3/6 months. Not cause im rich, but cause i exchange them with others. Im sick with tech and smartphones. I have no chance to get sane from this 😉 so, by the way I’m almost a nerd inside girl, lol, i love to make changes even on devices. So the idea of take a s4 and put on it the ui of lg made me go insane ahahha i have to do it! 😉 so canu please reply to my question?it will work?or not? 🙂 thank u very much and sorry for my not perfect english. I’m from italy. Bye
Okay, you’ll be able to install the LG Launcher on the S4 after rooting it.
Thanks for reply 🙂
does this launcher replaces the stock one or it is alternative?
I installed it on 4.2.2 but home keeps fcing.
Try reinstalling it after wiping cache.
it does not support status bar transparency, can you add this function?
Is it possible to change my lg optimus G UI with this lg optimus G pro UI ? If so, how?
Could they be applied in ROM ICS 4.04?
I could test it only on JB because none of my devices has ICS. Should work on ICS, give it a try.
I applied in LG Optimus Lte with custom rom 4.0.4 successfully. Thanks DroidViews.
