Change Your Battery Stats Colors without a Smali Mod

You may recall that earlier this year, we covered a simple Smai modification by XDA Recognized Themer and Contributor iamareebjamal that allowed users to change their battery stats color with a simple Smali modification. Such a modification isn’t exactly groundbreaking, as it just changes the way a certain (though often used) Settings page looks. However, as Google and OEMs place an increasing emphasis on UI styling, customizing a page’s look is more valuable than ever.

Let’s say that you wanted to go ahead and apply the modification listed above. Unfortunately, the guide only showed users how to do this through a Smali modification. While the modification itself isn’t anything difficult to perform, you still need to go through several steps before it can be applied. You have to pull your Settings.APK, decompile it, search for a particular location, and edit it to your liking. Then once that’s done, you have to push it back to your device, reboot, and hope that you like the color. If you’re not happy with the result, you have to repeat the whole, tedious process.

Luckily for those who don’t want to spend all day looking for the perfect color to match their particular mood, iamareebjamal went ahead and turned this into an Xposed Framework module that does the exact same thing–but with much greater convenience. The mod can be applied like any other Xposed module, and once enabled, you simply pick your color from the color wheel in the module itself. You can even set a particular transparency and compare the old and new colors directly.

If you have wanted to modify your Battery Stats color, head over to the X-Battery Stats module thread to give this a shot.

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
