Hidden Menu – ELT Test


ELT Test Automatic Mode –

In hidden menu, the second test is ELT Test.

I found it similar to the previous test but more time-consuming.

There are 2 modes, automatic and manual.

To start the automatic test I’ve selected the first option i.e. “1 time”. Click on “Test Start” to begin the process.

This test takes a lot of time so I’ve interrupted it in between.

Let’s proceed with the ELT test in manual mode.

ELT Test Manual Mode – 

In manual mode, the first test is LCD backlight test. I did it already in automatic mode so I’m starting with “Ringtone” test.

It tests the external speaker of the phone. The ringtone keeps on playing for 15 min at the highest volume.

The rest of the tests are also similar to the “Device Test” done before. So Let’s skip them and move on to the next option in the hidden menu.


Hidden Menu – Factory Reset

Go back from ELT test screen until you’re on the Hidden Menu Page as shown above.

The next option is to perform a factory data reset. We can do this from the Phone Settings itself. Its the one and the same thing.

Now again go back to the Hidden Menu Page


Hidden Menu – Log Service

The next option is Log Service.

You can enable or disable logs. The log can also be copied a sd card.

Log service is useful for Android Developers.

The last option is the Hidden Menu is “WVDRM keybox”. It does nothing when clicked.


Hidden Menu is just one of the Dialer Codes. There are 8 more secret dialer codes for LG Tribute HD.

  1. I was zv4. Unlocked the phone thru some 3rd party service for a fee. Had to use the hidden menu to add the apn and worked great on tmobile. As it was on wifi, it downloaded zv5 and keep asking me to upgrade. Did not want to do it for obvious reasons. Signed into google account and the update went on automatically. It basically locked itself back as it does not recognize my tmobile sim and i cannot access the hidden menu anymore to add apn. I am fuming. What a bunch of crap lg and boost, ghetto along with sprint. Can i downgrade to zv3? I hate this phone to go into the garbage as i will never use sprint or boost.

  2. I need help unblocking my LG Tribute HD through boost mobile.. I wanna go through a different plan and I need help. Please boost or someone.

    Thank you,
