LG Tribute Empire Developer Options & USB Debugging – lmx220pm

The Developer option is present in every android phone and is made available for Android Developers. It contains a huge list of options that can do more harm than good if messed with. So, It’s kept hidden by default.

The good thing is that we can enable it quite easily. The 2 useful options found in the developer options are USB Debugging & OEM Unlock. To unlock the LG Tribute Empire Bootloader, we need to enable both of these.

In this post, we are going to turn on Developer Options, USB Debugging & OEM Unlock as follows –

LG Tribute Empire Wireless Charging – How to Enable

LG Tribute Series is a budget series from Sprint. It’s synonymous with the Aristo series from the MetroPCS. LG Tribute Empire and Aristo 3 are the same phones with different model numbers.

Being a budget phone wireless charging feature is missing from the Tribute Empire. In the true sense, wireless charging just saves you from the hassle of inserting the USB cable into the charging port. It’s not that you can charge your phone remotely over the air.
