Get Greenify-Like Functionality on Gingerbread with Xposed

Despite all of the advances that Android devices have made over the years, battery life remains as an issue for most of us who use our devices heavily while on the go. Luckily, there are a variety of tools available to help us manage battery life a little better. One such tool is Greenify.

Unfortunately for users of legacy devices, Greenify is only compatible with Android 4.0 and up.  And while the vast majority of users have already switched to newer OS builds, there are still those who can’t afford or don’t feel the need to upgrade to newer devices. And since the app is closed source, there isn’t a chance of backport.

Luckily, XDA Forum Member liudongmiao made an Xposed module designed to work with Gingerbread version of Xposed Framework. The module functions quite similarly to Greenify, but it doesn’t require more modern versions of Android.

If you are still using Gingerbread and want to optimize your battery life, head over to the module thread and give this a shot.

For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
