Unfortunately there was a memory leak in Android 5.0.x Lollipop. Thankfully it was fixed in Android 5.1. However, at the time of this video Xposed Framework doesn’t have Android 5.1 support. So you are faced with a choice of fixing the memory leak or running your Xposed Modules. Or are you? In this episode of XDA Xposed Tuesday, XDA TV Producer TK reviews an Xposed Module that adds the Android 5.1 memory fix to pre 5.1 Lollipop devices. The module...
How to Access Your Android Device Like a Pro Using SSH
Ever wanted to have to have unrestricted file access to the /system partition of your Android device through the comfort of your desktop PC? How about wireless mounting to be able to copy files to and from your SD card via WiFi? If even that doesn’t tickle your fancy, what about shell access to your device via the same WiFi network?
Luckily for you, XDA forum member AdamOutler has put out a guide geared towards advanced users that shows you how to do precisely that.
Most of the time you don’t need to access the restricted areas of your phone. Sometimes it’s required. I like to use SSH/sftp as it is very compatible with everything.
Here are some of the benefits of using this technique:
- Dual mount ( you can copy to and from the phone while using the sdcard)
- wireless mount (copy to your sdcard without cable)
- wireless root shell (root terminal access)
This guide will allow you to do the following things:
- modifying data partition
- grabbing APKs from your phone
- unlimited access to all data
- full, unrestricted access on your /system partition
Given the potential risk to incapacitate your device, you are best off proceeding with caution. Continue on to the guide thread if you’re willing to take the risk.

The camera, battery life and feature set were also deemed...

A lot of the time, the applications' source code isn't even available, so how does it all work? We'll see that first, then take a look at a new tool that aims to make the process much easier, and finally compare it to the popular Xposed framework to see how they...
