A "hard reset" would not change the /system partition, which is where the .apk originates. Since you deleted the system app, I'm going to assume that you have root access. After installing the .apk, I recommend manually pushing it to /system/priv-app/ (command: adb push LGAlarmClock.apk /system/priv-app/, replacing LGAlarmClock.apk with the full path to the ....

Make sure "ok Google" detection is on for every screen. Do this by opening the Google app, navigate to settings > voice > "ok Google detection" and make sure the "from any sceen" option is enabled. Hopefully this solves your problem.

It seems that LG removed the entry to the setting on LG G3. Whether it's accidental or not, it's unclear. There are many reports stating the same issue: on LG G3 Sub-Reddit I have an app that asks me to go to "Apps with Usage Access". The app instructions tell me to go here: "Settings >> General >> Security >> Apps that access Usage Data". I am not ...

This works for both Vista and Windows 7. I've tried it on both. 2 - Install the downloaded software ...
