Tribute 2 Ls665 Camera Shortcut – Volume Down (Twice)
Many times it happens that there is a Camera moment, but by the time we launch the app, the moment is lost. As there is no dedicated camera key in Tribute 2, the camera cannot be opened in one single press.

LG Tribute 2 stuck at “Configuring Your Phone” – Volume Up + Volume Down + Power

The solution to this is Pressing Volume Up, Down and Power key at the same time. Now an option to skip step will be visible on the screen.
