Add Profile Support to Jelly Bean ROMs

The Android OS has been undergoing extensive development for over five years. Through the years, we’ve seen many useful features added, and many of these features were implemented in AOSP, while an equally large number have come from custom ROMs.

One of the main features added recently is profile support. It’s quite a useful feature to have on shared devices such as tablets. Every user can customize his or her profile with favorite apps and settings.

Not too long ago, we talked about a handy Xposed Module by XDA Senior Member safet.me to bring this to earlier Android versions. But if you still prefer to use APKTool, you might want to visit a thread by XDA Forum member durancharles27. With this guide, you will learn how to add profiles to various areas in your ROM such as the power menu or settings page. The method is really easy, and requires you just a few minutes of your time.

While far less convenient and seamless, using methods other than Xposed yields a few advantages. These allow the mod to be integrated into your personal ROM easily without adding additional applications and wasting space. Furthermore, you can do this without having to revert to Dalvik.

To learn more, make your way to the original thread and gather all the necessary information.
