Change Your Status Bar LTE Indicator with Xposed

LTE has slowly become the standard when it comes to mobile Internet in many countries. OEMs are always trying to include the newest hardware solutions, so having a phone or tablet with an LTE support is nothing unusual. As such, pretty much every flagship device ships with support for various bands of LTE.

By default, Android indicates which kind of connectivity is currently in place. This is shown in the top right corner of the screen, right next to the clock. Some OEMs prefer to display LTE, while others simply use a 4G icon instead. If you want to swap yours on the fly, XDA Senior Member hamzahrmalik prepared an Xposed Module that allows you doing this effortlessly. You can change your icon very easily, without recompiling the whole System UI of your ROM. Don’t let OEMs or carriers decide. Instead, you can make the choice for yourself!

Naturally, this module requires Xposed Framework to work. You can find the application and module collection in the dedicated Xposed Framework forum. To use it, your device must of course be rooted.

If you don’t like the way how your LTE connectivity is displayed on your device, head over to the 4G LTE Status Bar Xposed thread and change it right away. 4G or LTE: it’s up to you!
