The LG G4 has a ridiculously impressive camera, probably one of the best in the smartphone industry even after almost a year. However, there are some small caveats that are hard to understand. The camera officially doesn’t support recording 1080p videos at 60 frames per second. This is rather strange since the camera unit actually has enough power to do so. For some reason, LG has disabled it via software tweak.
This drawback is somewhat frustrating for a lot of people as they can’t get what they want. Luckily, the Android community is big and quite giving. An XDA user Nadeox1 created a simple mod that enables the 60 frames per second recording at 1080p. The mod was actually available even the phone was launched but it only worked on Lollipop. This one, however, has full support for Android 6.0 Marshmallow. You can simply download and flash this mode via TWRP on your LG G4. The creator has also left another zip file that will revert your camera to stock if for some reason your device behaves erratically.
In case you want to use the mod on your phone, you can do so by simply following the guide below. Do keep in mind that you must have a rooted phone with TWRP installed. If you do, let us proceed.
Install 60 Frames Mod on LG G4
- Root your LG G4 and install custom recovery > Guide.
- Download the 60 Frames mod and put it in your phone’s storage > Download.
- Reboot into recovery using the Quick Reboot app from Play Store > Download.
- Once you’re in recovery, tap Install and navigate to where you placed the zip file you downloaded earlier.
- Tap on it and swipe to install.
- Once your device is installed, simply reboot the phone.
Note: If TWRP asks you to install SuperSu, don’t let it. Doing so can send your device in a bootloop.
That was all, folks. The LG G4 will now have option to record 1080p @ 60 FPS videos without any hassle. In case you faced any issues, feel free to let us know.
