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...
LGCamera Application Brings Better Camera Experience
While many people don’t base their smartphone purchases solely on their camera hardware and software, it is nice knowing that you have at least a competent shooter readily available when you need to snap a quick pic. For some, though, the camera software experience can be very important. As such, there have been a number of camera mods and applicaitons in the near recent past, and the hits just keep rolling.
XDA Forum Member RubberBigPepper has developed a camera application called lgCamera. Do not let the name fool you, it’s not sourced from an LG device. However, it works pretty well, and some users have even reported that it works better than their native camera software. While technically in beta, it potentially has a few bugs. However, RubberBigPepper has been especially receptive in fixing those reported by users, and most users report a good experience with it already. Some of the features include:
-Zoom control by Volume control buttons.
-Autoshutter can be activated by long press onScreenShutter button.
-Camera parameters control (white balance, color effects, flash modes, focus modes, ISO and etc.)
-Video quality control ( resolution, encoder, format mp4 or 3gp, bitrate, framerate).
-Audio quality control (encoder, sampling eate, bitrate).
The only major issue currently left is making the app compatible with all devices, but for most it works pretty well.
For additional information or if you’d just like to help test it out, visit the application thread for download links and more.

The LG G4 has a lot to prove, given that last year’s LG G3 was among the best smartphones of 2014. The Global Mobile Awards given out during the time of MWC 2015 named it the Smartphone of The Year (SOTY?) alongside the iPhone 6, and at the time of its release it packed the very best in Android specifications, from the powerful Snapdragon 801 to the class-leading 1440p display. The camera, battery life and feature set were also deemed...
You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though? 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...
