LG K30 Screen Mirroring to Roku, Samsung TV, Fire TV Stick etc.

For Screen Mirroring a wired connection works best. There is hardly any frame rate loss and the best part is it works without an internet connection. However, the bad news is that these days quite a few Android smartphones offer MHL / Slimport / Micro-HDMI support.

These days, wireless screen mirroring is getting more and more popular. With the advent of Smart TV and Wireless Display Adapters, MHL support looks like a thing of the past.

Now Let’s talk about LG K30.On K30 we don’t get the cast option which is found on Motorola and other Android phones with stock vanilla android. Screen mirroring was possible on LG K20 plus after flashing Lineage OS Custom ROM. However, there is no root available for LG K30 as of now. So, we cannot flash a Custom ROM on LG K30.

The bad news is that K30 is not compatible with MHL as well. Else we would have mirrored our screen to the TV without Wifi/Internet. The wired connection is also more stable with less lag.

Thus, we have to resort to other options for screen mirroring/casting on K30.

In this post, we are going to mirror the LG K30 to the TV without using Chromecast. So let’s get going

I have tried dozens of app on the play store to mirror my K30 on the TV screen.

The majority of them are completely useless and filled with ads. The only app which did a commendable job was “Cast to TV -XCast” from Inshot Inc. After all, it has got a 4.7 rating from 130k users.

Download and install the app from the Play store app or using this play store link.

This app works with Roku, Chromecast, Fire TV Stick, Xbox, Apple TV, Android Smart TV & DLNA devices.

LG K30 Screen Replacement Guide – lmx410mk, lm-x410asr, lmx410pm

LG K30 has a curved edged 2.5D glass display with no Gorilla Glass or Panda King Screen Protection. A curved edge screen is more prone to damage than a flat one. So, it’s better to use K30 with a screen protector and case.

However, if your K30 glass or LCD is already damaged then the only solution is the screen replacement. A phone screen is made up of 3 parts. The outer glass, touchscreen digitizer and the inner LCD.

Now in most of the cases, the glass breaks but the touchscreen does work. In this case, the outer glass can be replaced with a newer one. If the impact is severe, then the digitizer and/or LCD would break. In such a case we need to change the LCD which includes the digitizer as well.

There is one more option which is the easiest one and can be done by a non-professional at home. The last option is to get an LG K30 LCD with Frame. Let’s check out these 3 methods of LG K30 screen replacement.

Follow the detailed guide to replace your broken K30 glass with a new one –

1. LG K30 Glass Replacement – Outer Glass Lens without Touchscreen Digitizer

LG K30 Screen Replacement

In more than 90% of the cases, only outer glass breaks and touchscreen digitizer remains intact. In such a case, you would like to save money by replacing the outer glass only. It sounds great but is quite difficult to implement.

This new glass can be replaced only after removing the broken glass using a heat gun. The LCD film is quite thin and may get damaged while removing the broken glass.

To do this job you would need to hire a professional and you may end up spending more than the cost of LCD. Moreover, it can never match the precision of the factory fitted glass.

However, if you wish to give it a try, you can get the LG K30 glass lens for around $10.
