Getting the most out of our music is, for me personally, the most important aspect of listening to music anywhere. I can’t stand listening to songs through low quality boxes, and this is exactly the problem with many of our Samsung Galaxy S5 devices. It’s just not good in terms of real quality output. Sure, it gets the melody and voices out loud and clear, but the quality of it really is something that I’m not happy with.

So, what can we do about? Well, with the Samsung Galaxy S5 there’s really only 1 option, and that’s to gain root access, so that we then are able to install apps that will boost the quality of the songs that we listen to.

However, this doesn’t fix any hardware issue though, it’s just a temporarily fix, especially when you own a cheap phone or tablet, the following won’t help you at all.

Root Access To Get A Maximized Overall Song Playing/Output Quality

Because I want to be able to play any of the songs that I own in perfect quality, I’ll have to do the following every time I start up my Samsung Galaxy S5 device:

(Note: the following steps will require that you have already pre-rooted your Samsung Galaxy S5 phone, meaning that you need to already have root access by seeing the SuperUser or SuperSU icon, if you haven’t got this, then make sure to do it as soon as possible, otherwise you can’t follow the steps below.)

Step 1: Download and install Music Volume EQ. This app is an equalizer app, which allows me to fine-tune my audio settings. I can hear by the audio output of my Samsung Galaxy S5 what the problem is, and by using the equalizer I can modify the (low/mid/high) of any song to my likings.

Step 2: Get the Volume + Free app, it requires that you accept the terms and conditions every time when you want to open it, but other than that there should be no requirements to run this app (except for root access).

Once you opened this app, you’ll be able to completely adjust all volume settings. Keep in mind that it will do this for your entire Samsung Galaxy S5 OS, so if you do this you can only revert it by uninstalling the pap.

You’ll be able to adjust:

1 – Speaker Modifications

2 – Add Virtual Room Effects

3 – Modify some additional EQ settings.

4 – Change up the Volume levels

5 – Do a bass enhance.

So as you see, these are 5 great additional things that you can utilize to easily optimize your audio output of any of your songs, without being tech savvy or anything else.

It is required though that before you do this that you backup your data, (the same goes for when you try out the Galaxy S5 root) just in case. When I first started doing this, I completely messed up my sound settings, and I didn’t figure out what I had to change back. So if you can create a backup of the factory settings first, then you should have no issues like that, as there are so many things that you can change, it can be hard to track what setting output is incorrect.

Just a simple tip: That being said, another smart thing that you could do, is to actually keep a song open, and then just hit the settings tab and modify a couple of settings. That way you can hear live what the option was doing for the music output.

Step 3: Install the app called Speaker Boost. This is the final tool in my arsenal, which I just to finalize my settings and all 3 apps combined will definitely make sure that I have the most optimal sound output that my Samsung Galaxy S5 phone can handle!

With this app, you can actually bypass the maximum volume abilities on Samsung Galaxy S5, so you can literally blow up your speakers with this, so be careful with it! The reason why I put the volume over the maximum that’s allowed for my phone is because I noticed some distortion errors when playing certain songs, what happens is that the volume is too low, and therefore gets cranked somewhat.

The solution was to install Speaker Boost, and put the volume on 110% of normal, then afterwards I could go back to my Samsung Galaxy S5’s home screen, and adjust the volume back down as otherwise my eardrums would be dead in no-time!

Somehow this fixed my distortion issues that I had with many songs. So if you’re having that, make sure to install Speaker Boost for the simple sake of trying it out!

Verdict: I want to quickly wrap this post up, as I’ve got nothing more to say! These 3 steps combined with a rooted phone is everything that you need in order to be able to get the best sound quality when playing any of your songs on an Samsung Galaxy S5 phone (this will also work for tablets).

  1. Make sure that your Samsung Galaxy S3’s bootloader is already unlocked and that the unit is fully charge.
  2. Download the ClockworkMod Recovery Image as well as the Root Script.
  3. You may then install ClockworkMod Recovery on the Samsung Galaxy S3 by first downloading the files and saving them on your desktop.
  4. Get a USB cable and then connect the Samsung Galaxy S3 to your computer.
  5. Go to the ClockworkMod Recovery Image and Root Script files and transfer them to the root folder of your Samsung Galaxy S3’s SD card.
  6. Go to your Samsung Galaxy S3’s menu, click on settings, select power and then fastboot in order to turn off the Fastboot option.
  7. Power off your Samsung Galaxy S3 and then reboot it into the bootloader mode. Once it detects PG76IMG.zip file just click on Yes and then reboot again.
  8. To start the process that can root Galaxy S3, you first need to ensure that your SD card still has the Root Scrit file.
  9. Power off the unit and reboot it into CWM Recovery mode by holding down the Volume Down and power buttons simultaneously.
  10. Click on the Recovery option, select the option that says install zip from sdcard and then click on choose zip from sdcard.
  11. Go to the Root Script file, select it for flashing and then go to the recovery menu and click on reboot system now.
  12. Once the process is done, you will then have root access on your Samsung Galaxy S3 plus the CW recovery. This will then allow you to do any customization of your Samsung Galaxy S3 any way you like.


Skip the lengthy troubleshooting process and start using a one-click solution through the use of a software!

The Android operating system offers an escape route for folks who are sick and tired of the old-school closed source-ness of iOS.

Recent iOS releases have even adapted some of the best features of Android.

While it is true that Android is one of the most customizable operating systems out there, there is still a lot to be desired.

For people who love to customize and play around with their Android devices, there is rooting.

With 2 GB or Ram, and a quad-core Snapdragon processor, the Samsung Galaxy S6 is a fighter.

However like all other Samsung Galaxy S6 models (and most other smartphones for that matter), it comes with a lot crapware that can prevent the phone from running at it’s full potential.

And just as with other Android phones, there are plenty of reasons to root your Samsung Galaxy S6. When we say plenty, we mean plenty.

That’s why we condensed all of the benefits of rooting into 5 main reasons to root your Samsung Galaxy S6.

Reasons to Root the Samsung Galaxy S6

Block Ads

A lot of free apps come with a lot of advertising. Some Android games have so many ads that you’ll have a hard time actually playing.

Rooting Galaxy S6 allows you to use apps like AdFree and Ad Away, so you can enjoy a premium, ad free experience for free.

Freedom and Customization

The possibilities are endless with a rooted device.

You can do things like overclocking, which boosts performance at the cost of battery life, or underclocking, which sacrifices performance for longer battery life.

You can even install apps that are supposedly incompatible with your device. Just make sure to back everything up before you go start tinkering.

Remove Crapware

Removing Crapware has so many positive implications.

Every device comes with a suite of apps that you will never ever use. What’s annoying is that they sometimes sneak up and eat up your RAM even after you’ve closed them.

Removing Crapware will free space for more storage, boost your phone’s performance, reduce power consumption, and remove a major stressor from your life.

Use Custom ROMs

Most of you probably know that you don’t need to root your device to flash a custom ROM. All you need to do is unlock your bootloader.

Since unlocking your bootloader is usually part of rooting, so we decided to include it anyway.

Custom ROMs can improve your user experience and give you a ton of features that you probably can’t get anywhere else.

Conclusion

To sum it all up, you have can get better performance and greater customization options out of a rooted device.

The latest Samsung Galaxy S6 models, the M7 and M8, already have a lot going for them. Rooting them is easy, and a great way to make the devices perform even better.

LG G3 is a great tablet that offers good value for money, has different functions and features all the amenities of Amazon. LG G3 is a core operating system based on Android OS but highly modified to only access the Amazon services.

What does not satisfy some users is the lack of pre-installed Google Play Store. With this guide we want to encourage owners of LG G3 reach this goal. With a little work, you can finally have all the Google Play services available on your device.

First you need to root LG G3 so y0u can activate root permissions:

– You need to download the app ES File Explorer from the Amazon App store. This app will allow you to upload and download files necessary for the root.
– Download the file from this link Google Play Store. Then unzip the files in any folder.
– The app ES File Manager will allow you to access root permissions, you have to go to “settings”, choose “Root settings” and select “super user”, “root explorer” and “mount file system”.
– Go back to the folder you chose for files Google Play Store and install the .apk file Google Services Framework.
– Once you installed the file, restart the tablet.
– Go back to the folder with the files Google Play store and look for the file vending.apk. Cut and paste the file into the folder System / AppDirectory.
– Hold down the left mouse button on the file vending.apk to go to properties. You will need to change the permissions by selecting the options “read” to “user” and “write” to “groups and others.”
– Install the file vending.apk.
– Go back to the folder with the files of Google Play Store and install the files gplay.apk. Finally, restart the tablet.

It ‘s done! Now you have access to the Google Play Store from your LG G3.

Security, spying, eavesdropping, etc. are now hot topics, getting sold like hot cakes. Finding a major safety problem in a smartphone is also a good way to get attention. Some time ago, there was supposedly a major leak in LG’s security Knox had been found – something that turned out not to be so, on a closer inspection. Today, the news went around the world that in some LG G3 devices, including the Galaxy S3 and LG G3, a real backdoor would be built, which can obtain remote access to the device.

A team of software developers, Replicant, said that a piece of software which the communication protocol of the modem of Galaxy S3 and LG G3 manages also implements a backdoor when rooting LG G3, allowing remote access to be gained to (parts of) the file of the devices. This backdoor may only be present on Galaxy devices from LG, and not in other Android smartphones. The indirect implication is that LG offers the backdoor as ‘built in’ feature.

Despite all the fuss, now several security experts say the least critical of the claims of Replicant. The ‘attack would make use of the backdoor is especially possible if a modified firmware is installed on the device. On a phone, with an official firmware, the method has been described by Replicant. This is how users can to get the device without using access.
Furthermore, the Free Software Foundation, as a platform for Replicant’s claims filed, according to security expert Dan Rosenberg, known as an organization that agitates against closed source software, it is unveiled that it includes LG’s additions to Android to run its own hardware properly. In other words, the claims would be a somewhat complicated way to “force” to publish its own code, which would make the activities of developers, including Replicant, a bit easier for LG. (Tip: Make sure to know how to to an LG G3 hard reset before trying anything else.)

The fork is also in the stem: there is therefore no open backdoor in Galaxy phones, especially if you are just running unmodified official software. Incidentally, the backdoor not only present on the Galaxy S3 and LG G3, but also not present on the Note 3, the S4, and last but not least present in S4 also.

For clarity, security issues are serious matters, which need to be seriously looked at when they do exist. If they only exist on paper in a situation which an ordinary user finds, seems to us the ancient imagery of the storm in the glass of water to apply.

Nothing lasts forever. Nothing lasts forever. Your rooting could theoretically last forever if you would like it, but it is said that this is the choice you really want to do. Many users, in spite of the effectiveness and usefulness of the rooting do not like the decisions irreversible, so look for a sort of back door to be able to change their minds if they were not satisfied. With this guide you can easily make special rooting and reverse the process at a later time, on your LG G3.

Requirements:

LG G3 with recovery.
Download the LG G3 Root files.
Do backup all data to avoid unwanted losses.
Battery charged at least 70%.

Process:

Copy the zip file for rooting on the inside of the SD Card of your phone and turn off the device immediately.
Press and hold the Volume Up and Power button to boot your phone in recovery mode. Release the keys when you see the LG logo appears.
Once the logo appears, press the Android Menu bott0one to start the recovery mode, and when in this mode, you can move using the volume keys, using Home to select and confirm the options you want.
Scroll to Apply update from SD Card and press the Home button to confirm.
Select the zip package of rooting inside of your SD card and confirm that you want to start the process of rooting.
Once this process is completed, return to the main menu and select Reboot System Now to reboot your phone.

Note: If you wish to remove the root, the procedure is exactly the same, just change the package: You will use that to unroot instead of the one used in the process as above.

Hoping that this has been very useful for you and for your LG G3, we hope that you will continue to follow with interest this and other sections of Android. it, relying on the material offered by the XDA Developers, the our colleagues infallible. See you soon.

Run the root is not always easy, but it allows you to have full control of your device. Today we see how to root the LG G3 on Windows with a few clicks. This guide is for anyone who has an Android version 4.3 or higher.

To run the root on any device you should always make a backup of your data, you can use LG Kies, if something goes wrong times the root process of the LG G3.

Check the USB cable
Be aware that the most common occurrences of failed attempts at rooting stem from a USB cable, frayed or disconnected and a low battery, so make sure that the cable is securely connected, and at least 50 percent of the battery remaining before continue.

Enable USB debugging
In addition to controlling the USB cable and battery, also check under Settings -> General -> Developer options and check the USB debugging so that the phone can connect to the computer.

If you do not have options for developers, head to Settings -> General -> About phone and tap 7 times on Build number in order to unlock options for developers.

Installation on the PC Kingo
Now download the program Kingo on your Windows computer, run the file Android_Root.exe and follow all instructions to properly install on your Windows computer. You can download the LG G3 Root file here.

Root with Kingo
Once installed, open Kingo and connect the device, the application will recognize instantly, giving you the device name and model number. You will see some notes on the root process, as well as the status of the root in the upper left corner.

Once you are ready to root on your LG G3, click on the big button ROOT. The program will start working with the entire root process for about five minutes in all.

Installation MtkCamera on your LG G3

During the rooting process, the device will automatically ask you to install an application called MtkCamera, which is the exploit used to gain root access by the processor.

Make sure that “I understand That this app may be dangerous” is selected and press the Install button to proceed. Do not worry, this file is completely safe and absolutely necessary root.

Check Root State
When your LG G3 restarts the process is complete, and Kingo tell on your PC and the root procedures were successfully completed. You should now see the SuperSU app on the device, which grants permissions for applications that require root access.

The LG G3 was rooted even before being release. An update pushed away this easy-to-use exploit feature. With the following instructions you can root your LG G3 right away.

LG G3 Root: How it works

Android is known to be based on the Linux kernel and this is where the rooting happens. It changes the very core of the phone which gives you administrator access to your phone options. Manufacturers are usually not interested to offer additional support to users who root the device. Although rooting is reversible, handle your phone with care after the process is complete.

The LG G3 is one of the few smartphones that was rooted even before release. Since manufacturers usually provide no way to officially make the root process, hackers are dependent on the exploitation of existing vulnerabilities in the firmware. This is also the case of the LG G3, which could be very simply activated via an exploit. With the current software version you get root access by following the instructions presented below. The root works with any LG G3 whose base band is called I9505XXUAMDM.

Download the following files and unzip them into any directory:

– The current LG G3 USB driver for mobile phones
– The files needed for the LG G3 Root. (password: djembey2013)
– The LG G3 flash tool Odin

To download them all, visit a tutorial to root LG G3, which’ll show you where to download all the root files.

Install the LG G3 drivers on your computer.

Turn on the LG G3 and boot it

In the Odin mode, press and hold the Volume Down button and the Home button. Hold the Power button of the phone and a warning message appears. Confirm this with the Volume Up button. If you see a big green android, you have done everything right.

Now connect the LG G3 with the computer

It should install a driver so that you can find a “LG G3 Mobile USB CDC Composite Device” in the USB Controllers tab of Device Manager after installation.

Now start Odin and remove all ticks down to “Auto Reboot”

If the LG G3 is detected, one of the displayed above flat boxes should have a bright blue coloring and lettering in the form of X: have [COMX]. (See picture)

Click on the button “PDA” and select the file “I9505_CF_AUTO_ROOT_MODIFIED.tar.md5″.

Flash it with a click on “Start” in Odin. After an (automatic) reboot, the LG G3 is rooted. In the App Drawer you will find the Super-SU app.

Make it look like a normal device

In order to do this for the LG G3, you have to repeat steps 2 through 6. After clicking on “PDA”, this time select the file “I9505_OFFICIAL_STATUS_MOD.tar.md5″ and click “begin”. The device will reboot and start fresh with an official ROM that also gets the official firmware updates from LG G3. This can remove the root access, however.

Please note that that even if the rooting is usually a safe procedure, you might risk your warranty, so you perform all these actions at your own risk.
