GravityBox Officially Available for Android 4.4 KitKat

The phenomenon of the  XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s Xposed Framework is undeniable. After all, it brings lots of modules and freedom of choice, without installing custom ROMs. Just over a week ago we informed you that one of the most popular modules, GravityBox by XDA Senior Member C3C076, was being updated to support KitKat in beta form and add in various new tweaks.

The module’s KitKat update is no longer in beta status. As we mentioned before, the developer decided to split his project into two parts: The first branch is dedicated only to Android 4.4 and is being actively developed. The second branch is for other systems, and will be eventually dropped in time.

What has changed? KitKat required a lot of changes, especially in status and navigation bars. For example an old method of changing the battery style and plenty of of other small KitKat compatibility fixes and adjustments were required. Luckily, C3C076 fixed almost all bugs, and only Motorola Moto X needs to have some things polished out because of differences between AOSP from Google and the ROM provided by Motorola.

GravityBox is one of the most versatile Xposed modules, and should become a great addition on almost every phone. If you are looking for a complete tweak box, make your way to the development thread and give it a try.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
