Easily Replace Your Easter Egg with Eggster
Over the years, Easter Eggs have become somewhat of a staple in Android. And for many, these fun little semi-hidden bits of code add to the overall Android experience. But with so many different versions of Android and now so many Easter Eggs, the Easter Egg that comes on our device may not be the Easter Egg that we would prefer.
Luckily, XDA Senior Recognized Developer rovo89‘s Xposed Framework can be used to solve many problematic situations, and this is no different. Thanks to a new module by XDA Recognized Contributor and Themer iamareebjamal, you can now easily change your current Android Easter Egg with one from an older or newer version of Android. All you need to do is select a new Easter Egg, and it will be accessible in the same manner as you would expect from your device’s native Easter Egg.
If you wish to upgrade your Android Easter Egg to a newer version or simply go back in time to see how these Easter Eggs evolved, head over to the module thread and try out Eggster.
