Download this file and put it in your phone's Tasker folder.
In Tasker, ensure you have Beginner Mode disabled, then tap the Home icon and select Import then import this XML. It'll create a new project tab with the profile and the two tasks.
This profile will disable Loc Svcs after 2 minutes of screen off time when using battery, and re-enable it after 10 seconds of your screen being on or charging. The rationale behind this is each time Loc Svcs is re-enabled, it sends a location request, so if you are just waking your phone for a couple seconds to check the time and notifications, it will save battery by not bothering to re-enable Loc Svcs.
NOTE: Requires Secure Settings. The Xposed Disable Location Consent module is highly recommended as well, as it will disable the annoying confirmation dialog when toggling Loc Svcs.
Secure Settings Plugin for Tasker: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.intangibleobject.securesettings.plugin
Xposed Disable Location Consent Module: http://repo.xposed.info/module/com.mohammadag.disablelocationconsent
NOTE: the tasks are configured for Android 4.3 and below. In 4.4, Google renamed the Location Services settings, so you'll need to edit the Secure Settings line in both of the tasks to the 4.4 compatible settings. In Secure Settings, it's under System+ Actions, Location Mode. So for the Location Off task, you would choose "device only", and Location On would be "high accuracy" or "battery saving" (depending on if you want GPS or not).
edit: If you want to retain location services when certain apps are running (like Google Maps for navigation), long tap one of the conditions in the profile, then tap Add, Application, select your apps (like Maps, Earth, Yelp, etc.), then at the bottom, tap Services and Invert.
I'm a die-hard Google Music fan (been subscribed at the $8 price since it launched), and it's been moving in this direction lately. The functionality (mostly) works, which is good, but the UX... it's just pointless. This is my library's artist view. I think you can spot the problem right away. Why on earth does so much room need to be used when it should just be a list of artists? It doesn't have an image for most of them (and you can't add your own), and even then I don't know what 95% of the artists look like. The last few updates have been moving more and more in this direction, sacrificing functionality for looks (read: padding everywhere). The side menu doesn't pop open by default anymore, you can't make it do so without an extension, and you can't even choose the default view when you load the site.
At least the functionality that's there works just fine though; if I add a song to my library it just appears and everything is good, and there are no issues managing playlists.
EDIT: If anyone uses Xposed on an Android device, you can get the functionality (but not theming) of that extension using XGPM.
That's not even necessary - just use an app. It doesn't need to be part of the OS. Here's one and this is the one I use. Both have the functions that the OP wants.
Then you just need to use this Xposed module to disable the built-in one if you're on lollipop. Problem solved :)
Edit: I welcome a discussion on using Xposed vs an app to add a feature... Xposed seems like it would be more memory efficient because it's "built in", but is it really? At the heart of it, an Xposed heads-up module is doing the same stuff as an app anyway, but it uses root access, which is less secure.
Try installing Xposed framework and using this: http://repo.xposed.info/module/com.devadvance.rootcloak2
That said, it's always going to be a cat and mouse game. Don't count on this to work forever. Here's a list of apps that root cloak works with btw
if you're into rooting/roms/etc... there is an xposed module called app settings that lets you restrict permissions for an app. i think i am probably just going to uninstall the UFC app since it is really annoying with its constant notifications and if i want to watch something i will watch it on my PC or TV, not my 5" screen.
xposed app settings - http://repo.xposed.info/module/de.robv.android.xposed.mods.appsettings
If you're running xposed, install this module: http://repo.xposed.info/module/com.mohammadag.disablelocationconsent. BTW, it isn't showing up when you toggle GPS but when you toggle network location.
Or you know, install uBlock Origin if you are on PC. On Android install Youtube AdAway.
3dot menu mod - Adds a button to access the menu of any app.
Tinted Status Bar - Changes status bar to match the app you're in (or it can be transparent)
For what it's worth, there's an xposed framework module that does just this- even if it's a fair bit more inconsistent than the iOS equivalent and doesn't work in Chrome.
I remember min min guard being a bit controversial when it was first launched as it was so effective at blocking ads inside apps. The Dev took a lot of flak from other developers as it was restricting revenue on their apps.
Iirc correctly he an abandoned it or altered the app. Maybe someone else had more details.
I like Google Keyboard Custom Smiles app, it adds them to the "(:" emoji tab on the Google Keyboard, little bit more tucked away. Needs Xposed though
It actually looks better this way http://i.imgur.com/CblbsS9.png :)
Edit: posted on repo http://repo.xposed.info/module/com.mohammadag.xposedpreferenceinjector
Edit2 : Changed image to the one where I sorted the modules alphabetically.
If you're rooted, use xposed and use a module called snapshare
Alternatively, if you don't have root or are on lolipop you can try SnapMod
Try to avoid the 3rd party apps, all they do is cause problems.
An xposed module (app using the xposed framework) that allows you to manage permissions per app. Instead of just restricting an app's access to certain features (like location access) which may result in the app not working properly it feeds it fake data (random location).
If you want to use it you need to have a rooted android device with an app that allows you to manage root access (SuperSu). You then must download the Xposed Installer an app that installs the xposed framework on your device and allows you to download, install and manage xposed modules. In that app you can also download xprivacy.
Xposed Installer: http://repo.xposed.info/module/de.robv.android.xposed.installer
For anyone with xposed, you can download the module App Settings, and adjust your dpi slightly for Calendar to enable month view. Here's what it looks like on a LG G3.
XPosed + Xprivacy lets you do that. You can even supply it with dummy info instead of outright blocking the permissions to help keep down crashes
•Root your phone.
•Install xposed framework.
•Install xposed module xprivacy.
•Restrict said applications ability to access contacts at system level.
Otherwise, good luck getting around Google frameworks!
For people with rooted phones there's an Xposed Framework module to disable this called CrappaLinks. It does this globally (as Tapatalk sadly isn't the only App doing this) and also unshortens all links so you can use them with your installed apps (like YouTube for example).
So we're agreed that something simple like what font, smileys, or other aesthetic elements should be selectable on any system. Cool.
Five bucks says there's an Android mod that will import them.
Oh, cool, I found one.
This module already exists
Disable flag secure, I'm not sure if it works on Lollipop or not, it's a permission claiming the content you're viewing is secure which prevents you from screenshotting/recording, this module ignores this permission.
I'm glad you looked first. I would suggest emailing him, but that may or may not yield a response. Someone could make a kang of his project similarly to what Smooth system progress bars did. Good luck
I use Xposed + Twisty Switch on my 2013 Moto X, I don't know if that will work with a 2014 but it might be worth a try.
FWIW Updates to the Motorola Camera broke Twisty Switch, so you might need to remove all updates on the camera in order to get it to work. Or it might not work in any way.
EDIT If anyone ever checks back on this thread, I think I'd recommend the Tasker solution given below even though this is the top scoring post. I needed to create a Titanium Backup shortcut/widget to disconnect Motorola Camera from the Play Store so it doesn't get updated and break Twisty Switch, and I need to run this any time before I do automatic updates because the Play Store re-links it every day. The Tasker solution does get kinda weird (unless I'm doing it wrong, when I hit the back button from Google Camera it goes back to Motorola Camera, at which time Tasker launches Google Camera again, at which point I hit the back button a ton of times to get out of the loop), but I don't need to worry about Motorola Camera updates.
EDIT2: Make your Tasker task kill Motorola Camera first and then launches the Google Camera. Then things work smoothly.
> I think Mozilla should use a configuration option to enable/disable this , as leaking ssl keys based on env variable is defeating the entire purpose of SSL/TLS in a browser.
I don't (fully) disagree, but FWIW if I have the ability to set your path it's generally game over (with a few exceptions). Unless you are doing some serious privilege separation, hiding it in a browser's config somewhere is no more secure.
Maybe an unobtrusive eye icon that appears next to the SSL lock that isn't overly alarming to end-users or annoying to the point of needing a paddling?
for the rooted/xposed framework users out there...
Buttered Toast adds the Application name to any Toast notification displayed.
I've found it very useful when a random app shows a disconnected or error message toast while in another app.
The only workaround without root i found in the 5.0 and 5.0.1 days when it was really bad is to keep mobile data off unless you need it. toggle it on when needed and back off, make sure it's off when on wifi, etc... there is a great xposed module that helps called smart network. it lets you automatically turn off data with the screen, a delayed timer, and the option to turn on data and sync in user defined intervals should you use a data messaging service like FB or whatsapp. set it to turn on data and sync every 10 minutes and you still get messages in a timely manner and avoid the mobile radio active bug. that module was lifesaver on my Nexus 5 when i was running lollipop builds.
☆ Disable Data Auto synchronization when your screen is Off
☆ Switch automatically to 2G / Edge or any other mode when

☆ Switch GPS automatically to any mode when your screen is Off
☆ Turn Off your mobile data when your screen is Off
☆ Disconnect your current WiFi AP when your screen is Off
☆ Turn Off WiFi service when your screen id Off
☆ White list applications for WiFi and Mobile data
☆ WiFi SSID White list for WiFi changes
☆ Turn Off NFC when screen is Off
☆ Turn Off Bluetooth when screen is Off
☆ Delay options for each connection type
☆ Timers to activate periodically WiFi/Data/Sync while screen is Off
☆ Wait for screen unlock before turning ON services
Part of the 1.5 release is a Deluxe/Premium version, but the update notes say nothing about including ads. He's charging $2.99 for Premium, $9.99 for Deluxe, which hardly add any features (the unlimited replay feature was actually included previously for free). This is a really great module, but I almost want to uninstall it because of this.
1.5 update notes
Taking the time to read the linked app's comments makes it clear most phones don't support this (since, obviously, the hardware needs to support it -- having an API method isn't enough if all it does it return a constant). IIRC, though, it's probably something else since that method doesn't actually return pressure but calculates it based on detected touch points (at the extremities of your finger).
PS. An Xposed module has been around for quite a while to emulate this system-wide and make it act similarly to long tapping. Saves time if you get used to it. It's by the glorious /u/MohammadAG. Edit: you can actually use this even if you don't have Xposed, as a proof of concept app. Works better than the one linked in the article.
(I also think the whole "who did it first" debate is childish and only good to bait fanboys for clicks.)
If you've rooted your phone, another option is XPrivacy using the Xposed framework.
It will prompt you whenever an app tries to use any special permission, and you can specify whether to allow or deny the usage and for a specific time period (or as part of a permanent whitelist for the app).
You can actually do this. Install the Xposed Framework, then install the "PIN Shortcuts" module and set it to open an app like 'Emergency Panic Button (SOS)' when you type in a certain PIN. THe app will then send the SMS! Although, it does launch the app, so the kidnapper will probably be notified.
I suggest x-posting this idea to /r/xposedrequests so that maybe a dev will make a module specifically for this!
There's an xposed module that fixes that exact problem. Google should make it a default feature, I'm not sure if there's a reason why it is the way it currently is.
Hopefully I can manage to install Xposed on my emulator so I can develop a module like this today.
EDIT: Oh well, that was easy. Trying to make the module.
EDIT2: Hm, do you have a place for me to find the resources maybe?
EDIT3: Alright, got the module working. Will finish it this evening. I don't have time right now to edit the images.
EDIT4: Boom. There we go. Let me know what you guys think (and if its even working for you).
Snapprefs is the one I've heard most about, but I think there are a few others too. Snapprefs seems to do loads more than just silently saving media/taking screenshots. I can't really vouch for any of the modules since I don't use Snappchat. (And note, Snapchat is trying to prevent root and xposed users from using the app, but I did a quick google search and it seems to be more or less trivial to get around that.)
E: The stealth screenshot thing seems to be part of their "deluxe" features. I'm not sure what that means, probably that you have to pay for them.
> Aside from the non-free argument, DRM still has a fatal problem with not actually preventing piracy whatsoever. The only way to prevent users from ripping videos is to completely lock down their own systems, which will never happen for the tech-savy users.
On Android breaking DRM is easy. After rooting and installing the Xposed framework DisableFlagSecure module can be used to take screenshots and record any app, I tested with Netflix.
XPrivacy ftw! It enables very fine-grained control of permissions per app. It also enables you to, if you want, send fake data (randomized, or a user-supplied value) to apps that read GPS data, MAC, IP, IMEI, Android ID, GSF ID, Advertisment ID, Country, phone number, etc.
Now for some quick help for all those wondering about rooting. Do it while you still can. This method does not trip Knox.
Get towelroot by downloading and installing the apk. Open the app and click "Make it rain". Easy right?
Next, get SuperSU from the play store. Install it and then run it. It should prompt you to update the binary so try to proceed with the normal installation. If you have an unlocked bootloader, great, do what you prefer. It may ask you to disable Knox. The past 3 times I attempted this did not work without FIRST rebooting then going through the binary update and lastly you should be able to disable Knox this time.
The last apk you need to grab is the latest stable release of the Xposed installer. When you run it, you will need to go to the "Framework" drop menu and select "install/update". It will probably require a reboot before you can install/enable modules.
You have to enable the modules you wish to use by checking them in the " Module" section of the drop menu. Some have configurable options and some don't.
As for performance and battery life. I have seen a good considerable difference in battery consumption but that is probably because of so many modules and apps I have installed. I have a Zero Lemon 7500mAh battery on my phone and I can usually go 2 days on it. If you see a battery drop, disable modules you don't need.
I have yet to see a module freeze my phone, excessively drain the battery, overheat my device, hog memory, or do something it isn't supposed to (relating to permissions).
I hope this helps some of you out there. The modules on the imgur link are the ones I use 24/7 so if you have questions, shoot away.
Not without using something heavy-handed like the App Settings Xposed module, which gets in there and "physically" removes calls to Java functions that would produce audio. Android simply doesn't permit background and foreground volume levels to differ. 😔
Has anyone tried ActivityForceNewTask, Advanced Power Menu+ or SnapColors? They're not on the list and I don't have my PC right now.
Edit: SnapColors added to the working list.
There are tons of dual screen or window in window mods in the Xposed Module repository. If you're running CM11S rooted, you can install the KitKat version of Xposed. If you're running CM12 Nightlies you'll need the Lollipop Alpha version of Exposed.
You can do pretty much anything you imagine with Android.
If you're rooted you can install the Xposed framework (http://repo.xposed.info) and load the module AppOps, that allows you to restrict permissions on a per-app basis.
Apart from that I heard people using SnoopWall and LBE Privacy Guard but I didn't try either myself.
AdAway blocks all ads, including in app ads.
Edit: Oops, YouTube ads aren't blocked by regular AdAway, I forgot about that. I highly recommend YT AdAway for this:
If you have a rooted device this is really easy
Download and install Xposed installer framework
Install YouTube background playback
Restart device and use YouTube like a media player
Here's a Xposed mod which adds this to Androids with Xposed Framework
Probably not as good/accurate as Apple's, but still pretty neat that it works with current touch screens
No. This module removes the Flag_Secure permission in applications that prevent you from using the screenshot function, Snapchat doesn't use this, it allows you to take screenshots but alerts the other user.
What you're looking for is Snap Prefs this module allows you to take screenshots without the sender receiving a notification, and even allows auto saving of all images, plus various other tweaks
If you're on kk and have xposed there is a module called "immersive mode don't panic" and you can disable the annoyance of these messages :)
No worries, you're not bothering anyone. Here is the link for the xposed repo with the installer's apk. Under the Download tab search Blurred System UI (it'll be the one by Serajr)
Hide Apps Xposed lets you hide apps from the app drawer, and GravityBox [KK] lets you change the number of rows and columns on the homescreen. I don't know of any that would turn the app drawer into something that scrolls vertically though.
>the weird thing is that for Niantic root=cheating?
I'm not into Pokemon, though have you seen all the Xposed modules for Pokemon GO?
Can't blame them for blocking rooted phones.
Doesn't Snapprefs let you do pretty much the same thing? You can share any photo with Snapchat, which just opens that photo in Snapchat like you just took it in the app.
I use this one on CM12.1: http://repo.xposed.info/module/com.smartmadsoft.xposed.disablesuindicator
Apparently it works on CM13 as well: http://forum.xda-developers.com/xposed/modules/mod-disable-su-indicator-cm12-t3056432/page2
For those of you running Xposed there is a module called Suggestions Toggle, which is exactly what it sounds like. A simple double press on the text field disables or reenables word suggestion/learning.
Iirc there is an Xposed module called lockscreen shortcuts that does that. It doesn't introduce a new lockscreen, just patches the native lockscreen to include shortcuts.
@all of you who want a cursor move feature without changing the keyboard itself: try this xposed module (StatusCursorControl): http://repo.xposed.info/module/com.zst.xposed.statuscursorcontrol
You can move the cursor by wiping on the statusbar, you can also change how many characters you move if it's too fast or too slow for you.
Ofc root is needed for xposed.
That's the best part of Android: even if it's not in stock you can get it. If you use Xposed, try this module. If you are unaware of Xposed, it requires root, but otherwise is insanely awesome.
Xposed Installer + Modules:
ES File Explorer
Hype Machine (closed beta)
Reddit Sync Pro
There are bunches of other fantastic ones. The best way to find new ones is to just browse around in the Xposed Installer app.
I've had it on the beta for a few months now: http://i.imgur.com/xW3ml94.png
Ignore the fact that the status bar is the same color, that's an Xposed module.
There is an Xposed module available to do it for SMS if you are using hangouts for SMS.
It works only for SMS messages and NOT for IM messages.
But yeah, google really needs to up their development hangouts. It really needs to implement some form of quick reply into the app. If the one thing that it SORELY lacks right now with respect to other IM apps, it is features....
Works like a charm. Requires Android (and not being afraid of tweaking the system) though.
For general ads (even in-app, not just browser based) http://adaway.org is all you need. Requires root, but that's easily obtained. Also Android only.
> I honestly wish I could also turn it off in the pull-down quick-settings panel.
Qs X tiles per row module can do this as well as gravity box and possibly N-ify.
Have you looked into XInsta? It does a good job of hiding ads most of the time. Not sure about disabling the Explore tab, although you can disable side navigation.
There once has been a module called Xtended Navbar or something similar and it did exactly what the V20 does, but it hasn't been updated forever and stopped working for me a long time ago. But it certainly is possible.
There might be another way: http://repo.xposed.info/module/com.elynx.pogoxmitm can rename your pokemons iv on the fly while the requests are travelling through your phone.
If I understand right, its not using a server and thus you don't have to the certificate stuff. Instead the dev found a way to manipulate the data flow directly.
We could use this technique to extract spawns and send it somewhere to a map (whoever implements this, pls allow custom/multiple server)
We could use this for every data sent to phone, gym color, gym location, stops location etc. And all that, the go app does not even know its exposed.
The only thing they can do is making a trap and detect that ingame and reports home.
AFAIK the only way to successfully block ads on youtube is using Xposed with Youtube AdAway. This would require your phone to be rooted.
Feel free to correct me if I am wrong.
>AFWall+: restrict apps from accessing access your data networks
The only way to receive MMS without leaving your mobile data perpetually on for any random app to use it.
A god-send for those of us who grandfathered onto the 200MB AT&T plan, :p
Some Xposed modules to add to the list:
Customize Swype's keyboard with custom colors (like getting those symbols back on the Material Theme)
Directly install APKs on a per-app basis with an install prompt (leaving unknown sources always disabled)
Disable security when you connect to a certain WiFi SSID. 100% effective; not flaky like Tasker or other apps
if you have Xposed installed there is a neat module for that. http://repo.xposed.info/module/com.p1ngu1n.volumesteps
it lets you set any amount of increments you wish, which makes it easier to find the optimal volume when you listen to music.
that would the xposed module smart network. it allows you to disable mobile data but set an interval to allow data to toggle on for a set time for account sync at a user defined interval like every 10 minutes.
☆ Disable Data Auto synchronization when your screen is Off
☆ Switch automatically to 2G / Edge when your screen is Off
One that's not really talked about much but I really appreciate is called Eye Preserver.
It's a simple module which slightly increases the brightness levels for auto brightness at lower brightness settings. So if your device's auto brightness (it works with adaptive brightness too) is too dim at the lowest brightness, this module tricks the system into thanking the room is a little bit brighter than it is by increasing the lux value passed to the system by the ambient light sensor. It only modifies brightness settings below 180lux, so it is only for the lower end of the brightness spectrum, but it's fantastic for devices that are just set a little too dim at the lowest auto brightness setting.
True silent mode- just lower the volume one past vibrate and you get silent mode like you had pre-LP
Gesture navigation- use it for just one gesture, slide down on the right edge for back, very useful on a phone as big as the N6
thanks, where can I find it?
on the website I only see 2.7 or older
EDIT: found it :) thanks!
GravityBox[LP]: A godsend utility to tweak the interface and get most of AOSP, in my experience.
Flat Style Colored Bars: Uniformed look in the status and navigation bar, doesn't matter if the application has material design or not.
NFC is off while phone is locked is done for security reasons. But if you want to enable it while screen is off, there's an xposed module called NFC LockScreenOff Enabler they'll let you configure if you want NFC to be on all the time, or screen on but phone locked, or when unlocked.
The old functionally is called "Notification Ticker", which has the notification messages scroll in the status bar. The new Lollipop type is called "Heads Up Notifications", where a banner pops down at the status bar. Personally, I prefer using the old ticker instead of heads up, as the heads up notifications take up way too much space.
Changing this over is not easy, unfortunately. There is no global setting for this. Some apps themselves offer an option to enable/disable heads up notifications, such as Groupme. However, not all apps do, especially not Google System apps. Additionally, just disabling the heads up notifications does not restore the notification ticker. So now the notification icon just pops up in the status bar without any scrolling message.
To restore the notification ticker and disable all heads up notifications globally, the only method I know of is installing Xposed and the Restore Notification Ticker for Lollipop Module. Works for Xposed 5.1 as well, in case you were wondering.
You can read it here: link
There are many useful modules that allows customizations, fixes and so on, which is why Android users love Xposed a lot. But lately the author hasn't been able to commit as much time to adapt it to newer version of Lollipop (even the 5.0 version is alpha or beta AFAIK).
TLDR - Xposed is awesome, everyone loves it. We all want it for newer versions of Android. I broke a lot of people's heart.
Jeg rootede min telefon da jeg fik den, og installerede Xposed framework og et modul dertil der hedder Xprivacy. Med Xprivacy er der godt styr på app permissions.
I just checked xposed, there is one that sounds like it's exactly what you're asking for: Notification Count - http://repo.xposed.info/module/de.bbukowski.notifcount (that's exactly what my default setup looks like on CM 11).
I can't stand the white color theme, the whole thing just looks like crap to me. I'll wait for a few update releases first anyways.
You need to disable the update service, which runs as part of Google Play Services.
I used 3C Toolbox and the Xposed module that allows tweaking addition things (like this). You'll need to install the Xposed framework too, which IIRC requires root. There may be another way of doing this, but already had those tools on my phone, so...
Once in 3C toolbox:
Google Play Services
App Settings for Xposed can do that on a per app basic (check resident/persistent), along with cool other things, like:
Needs a custom recovery (to install) and root though.
It is actually like having a custom ROM while keeping the stock ROM. The customisation options are incredible.
So modules I use:
Youtube adaway is one which is handy.
Boot manager to control apps which load on boot.
Xprivacy to control permissions of apps.
Greenify to save you a load of battery.
NlpUnbounce to reduce nlp wakelocks (more battery saved)
OK Google for 3rd party launchers (so it now works when I use Nova Launcher)
No Lock home (no pin unlock needed when connected to home wifi)
I have used Sense 6 toolbox to modify my notification area,like making it transparent, moved the clock to the middle, stopped the USB and MTP icons from showing, adjusted folder transparency.
Added a load of swipe gestures. Raise MMS size limit.
Quick flashlight (which I use a lot) is when screen is off, a long press on the power button turns flashlight on.
Check out /r/xposed for more info or XDA developers or the Xposed Module repo
Gravitybox can change many little things in almost all parts of your phone. This can be things like holding the volume buttons to skip tracks or modifying the looks of the icons in the status bar. It does lots of small things (of which some should imo be included in android anyway) and just lets you tweak your phone the way you want it. (Will update with more examples of what it can do later.)
Edit: I use gravitybox to:
And it can do much more! See here
/r/xposed post: http://www.reddit.com/r/xposed/comments/23z2jo/remove_screenshot_delay/
Ninja edit: no idea if it'll work on 4.0 and 4.1, the code is the same for 4.2+, but for 4.1- I did some blind coding.
I know you might be new to Android, but when you get more experience with the OS you might want to try rooting your device.
The feature you miss (tap status bar to scroll to top) is actually available on Android, but it requires that your phone be rooted and that you install the Xposed framework on your device. When you have the framework installed you can then download the module called Status bar scroll to top.
I think the feature is cool, but I currently have my phone set up so that double tapping on the status bar turns off my screen.
Do you have your phone jailbroken/rooted?
On a rooted Android device you can force a language on per app basis using App Settings (don't know which Android versions are supported)
On a jailbroken iOS device you can use App Language Switcher (it says it's compatible up to iOS9 but it works like a charm on my iOS10 device)
You can see on the upper-left that there is a pointer indicating that the user is holding the "Switch Apps" button. In the regular/non-rooted Android, holding that button does nothing, modifying that button's function requires modification to the SystemUI which can only (safely) achieve by using Xposed framework and a module that modifies it.
Sure no problem. (Edit: Sorry I wrote this in a hurry)
For MEmu I used this link:
For my phone with 6.0.1 I used this link:
The 5.x/6.x version differs slightly. Both methods might cause bootloops, lockups but I haven't experienced that yet.
If you experience a lockup in MEmu this guide should help you to reset it in case of emergency.
The modules you want in MEmu are RootCloak and Security Bypasser. After installing activate them from the Modules menu and restart your phone or emulator.
In Rootcloak add the entries:
I want to explain a bit further about MEmu.
During the process of setting up Xposed Framework it requires to write/edit some files in the system folder. Normally on the phone you'd be sent to a custom recovery screen where it will install these files for you. Since you're running in an emulator this will cause you to see the boot screen of MEmu and you'll be unable to see the progress of it.
This is how I installed it:
If you're rooted, you can also use an xposed module to make it continue to play in the background without any extra steps. It is kept very up to date as well:
Also, if you have Xposed installed, there's Download Redirection which puts everything you attempt downloading through ADM, with an option to whitelist apps you don't want using it.
Essentially its 720p+ streaming video, you could even see the quality ramp up when I started playing Fruit Ninja. It let me use the feature on 4G and it was sucking 600KBps (4.8Mbps) at times.
Screenshot showing bandwidth: http://i.imgur.com/KsNNsVL.png
I don't think this is the instant apps feature seen at IO, this is apps running in a virtual machine, streamed to your device.
I prefer AdAway (root only), with YouTube Adaway (xposed mod, specifically for ads in YouTube) as an addon.
MinMinGuard is a great one for an all-in-one adblocker, with per app settings, but I normally just use AdAway as that makes the adblocking system-wide.
First result in Google:
Since this doesn't support 5.1+, another way is this:
Xposed is a framework that enables small applications called "xposed modules" to change things in your device.
It's mostly device independent.
You can read about installing it here.
You can find that module I've mentioned here.
Remember to perform a nandroid backup before flashing anything!
Yep that's one of my favorite features, but supposedly developers don't use it because it goes against the material guidelines. If you're using Xposed, check out lolistat. It matches the navbar color with the status bar for every app, and since it uses the native api, it works seamlessly.
Read my responses to the rest of this thread, the summary is:
Just because anyone can audit the code doesn't mean that anyone does.
Just because some people audit the code, doesn't mean that they are qualified to say if it's secure or not.
Just because researchers (qualified ones) have decided code is secure doesn't mean that it actually is or that they haven't missed anything.
And while the code is hosted on github, the download you get it from is at xposed.info which doesn't have an https certificate for their domain...
For those of you running Xposed, the Niwatori module has implemented this idea in a way that works a lot smoother than the shell command / Tasker method.
They disable screenshots because an application could sit in the background and then take a screenshot when you open your banking app. Yes, it's a security feature. Also any screen recorders will just show black when you are recording and the app is open. If you want to get around this, you can install this Xposed module: http://repo.xposed.info/module/fi.veetipaananen.android.disableflagsecure
It should work because you are still on KitKat, also why are you still on KitKat?
Yes it is possible, but to do so requires XGPM which is a xposed framework module which requires xposed framework to be installed which requires root privilege.
There's an xposed module called Flat Style Bar Indicators which allows you to customize many different things about signal icons, battery icons etc. along with this. If you have root access and xposed you can install the module, activate, reboot, make sure to thoroughly go through and disable what you don't want and if you have questions feel free to ask and I'll be more than willing to help. But after you activate the module, go to carrier, and it should already be activated, but that's where you'll find it. Here's a screenshot
>Resources-related incompatiblity on newer CM12-based ROMs
I have been working on the Remove Battery Saver Warning Color module. Testing if this once and for all fixes the imcompatability with CM12.
If you're happy rooting your phone, you can use Xposed with the APM+ module.
