Disable the Low Battery Alert with Xposed
There are plenty of Xposed modules out there. Their purposes range widely from adding previously device-specific functionality to patching bugs, and everything in between. This is, of course, all made possible by XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s fantastic Xposed Framework (thread) . The framework allows developers to create a module APK that is able to make a modification at runtime, while leaving original files intact. Both a boost in ease-of-use and user safety, Xposed makes device modification into a click and reboot affair.
A new Xposed module from XDA Senior Member defim has appeared, and its purpose is to remove that annoying low battery popup alert that you are given when running low on juice. Yes, being notified that your battery is running low is generally useful. However, for those of us who actively look at the battery meter in our status bars, it’s a bit redundant. Furthermore, if you happen to be in a call when you receive this alert, it will generally turn on your screen, thus reactivating the touch sensor. For yours truly, this has resulted in accidentally ended phone calls, unintentional muting, and more.
The module will work on any ICS+ device with Xposed Framework installed. Simply install the module, activate it, and reboot. To tame your low battery alert, head over to the module thread.
