The LG G Flex comes with a new feature called Split Screen, which allows us run two apps on the same screen alongside each other. Actually, it is not a new feature, Samsung initially introduced this feature on its Galaxy Note II, but with a different name, namely Multi Window, however the functions are identical. Unfortunately, only some apps are given permission to utilize this feature, such as Chrome, YouTube, Hangout, etc. Additional applications you’ve downloaded via Google Play Store will not be able to take advantage of this feature.
But now there is no need to worry, there are still ways to allow more apps to run in Split Screen Mode on LG G Flex, thanks to the D-FUSE, a recognized contributor from xda forums who find solutions to outsmart it.
An absolute requirement that you must have to be able to bring more apps to this feature is root access, obtain root privileges on the G Flex is not a difficult thing due to one-click root script from autoprime. Once successfully rooted, feel free to use any root file browser apps such as Root Explorer, to modify system file.
Here are some easy steps to add more apps to LG G Flex Split Screen:
- Ensure you have rooted LG G Flex.
- Install any file manager app that has a system R/W feature, for instance Root Explorer or ES File Explorer.
- Go to “/system/etc” folder and look for this file “com.lge.splitwindow.default.apps.xml”.
- Scroll down until you find “GMS” comment, you will see the Google app’s package name listed below.
- Add your own app’s package name there. If you have no idea about the app’s package name, go to Play Store and search for “Package Name Viewer“.
