GravityBox Xposed Module Updated to Support KitKat

Android

We have been writing about Xposed a lot lately, and this is all well deserved. Most of you have either heard about it, or have already installed it. Xposed Framework gives almost unlimited freedom in adding your favorite features into almost any ROM, no matter if it’s custom or stock. Xposed was recently updated to support Android 4.4 KitKat. And now, many of these modules¬†can be used on Nexus 5 or other devices running KitKat.

One of the most popular modules comes from XDA Senior Member C3C076. We are naturally talking about GravityBox, a tweak box for Android greater than 4.1. Since our last article about this project, quite a few things have been added and refined. The most noticeable change was adding an experimental support of KitKat, which took place in version 2.7.4 .

The developer also informed us that he will create an exclusive branch for KitKat devices as soon as his Nexus 5 is delivered. C3C076 mentioned also that he will focus mainly on KitKat project. Because of this, Mediatek devices, for which originally GravityBox was developed, will be eclipsed by ongoing development for newer devices. To use this module, your device must be rooted and newest version of Xposed Frameworks must be installed.

If you want to add some excellent features known from custom ROMs like CyanogenMod or Paranoid Android, make your way to development thread and give GravityBox a try.
