lg g3 knock code xposed module for nexus 4 and nexus 5 nexus and me

LG recently launched their 2014 Flagship Android Smartphone, the LG G3 which is a follow-up to 2013 well-received LG G2. The LG G3 is a monster in terms of specifications and features. The device sports some really jaw dropping specs – a 5.5 inch QHD Screen with 538ppi pixel density, 2.5 GHz quad-core processor, 3 Gigs of RAM, 13MP Camera with Laser Auto Focus, Metallic body and more.

The major enhancements that LG G3 brought with this smartphone is to its User-Interface by considering the present Flat icons trend and other UX features. The UX features are really cool, unique and seems justifying the tag “Simple is the New Smart” as most of them starts with the word “Smart” and they are indeed. Even today’s the Knock Code is also one of the LG G3 UX feature. Thanks to the developer who emulated the same functioning for other OEM devices in the form of an Xposed Module.


Rooted your device then here is the LG G3’s security lock “Knock Code” for Nexus 4 and Nexus 5. Tested and working fine. Vexed up with the same old pattern, Pin locks then switch to this new security lock. The “Knock Code TM” enables users to unlock their device with a pattern of taps.  As our device screen isn’t an OLED display, the knock code works only while the screen is ON.

For a brief look on  how it seems and works go through the video below, featuring the LG G3 Knock Code and Auto Set Wallpaper.

 How-to ?

1. To enable Knock Code, your device must be rooted and have Xposed Frameworks installed and running. If not then go through the below links on how to root and work out with Xposed Frameworks.

2. Now tap this link from your smartphone to download the “Knock Code” Xposed Module, when download completes install it and tap the “Activate and Reboot” your device notification that pops.

3. After successful reboot goto the Knock Code app and tap the “change knock code” option to set a new Knock Code pattern.

That’s it, now lock your device and try unlocking it with a pattern of taps. Cool isn’t it, then why don’t you give it a try. And don’t expect much like the one on LG G3 as this module is just a replica.

    This is not G3’s knock code. How couldnt you notice? The greatest benefit of knock code is to tap while the screen is off and if you did it right it will bypass your lockscreen. With that Xposed module I still have to turn the screen on. Call it whatever you like, except Knock Code.

    • Seems like you haven’t gone through the article completely and considered this as an original knock code ported to your device. If so, it is not. It is just a replica and works only while screen is on. I even stated about “screen on” in the article and even the video above shows, how does this Knock code seems. Then how could you say that. And I have been using this knock code right from the day I posted this article and it is a great module.

        I’ve read the entire article. Your mistake is to title the article as “LG G3 Knock code for…”, and even stating that you can emulate it on other devices. It should really state from the beggining that this is just a very inacurrate replica. If you think about it, this is just a PIN code lock screen with only 4 numbers.

        • hmmm okay Vinicius. But before I gonna change the title of the post you first go through this Video http://goo.gl/BJdzK2 and then mine http://goo.gl/kFYZ4u and clear the below things.

          1. How many pattern numbers(4) are there on official knock code and here.
          2. What he does on the official knock code just the “pattern of taps” or something else that we couldn’t do over here.
          3. how does the pattern setup, UI and all look like, entirely different?

          The one and only thing with this replica is, it works ‘while screen is on’. Then how it could be entirely inaccurate replica. Clear me, then I’m gonna change the title.

            I already watched the video. And you answered your question yourself. If it’s not a perfect copy than you can’t say it is LG G3 Knock Code for “insert devices here”. You could say it is Knock Code alternative/imitation. It’s just simple logic, and also helps to not confuse your visittors.

            If you don’t wanna change it that’s ok. Looks like over 4000 people came here and nobody complained. I just think it would be the correct thing to do.

          • That is why we guys place screenshots and videos featuring the post content. Even then if you guys get confused then we can’t help. Please do comment but positively. Thank you, chill 🙂

            Well, that doesn’t help the fact the title is misleading, making me come here just to be frustrated. I’m not mad at you or anything. Positive comments can’t be forced, unless the article is accurate. You are welcome :).
