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...
Make The Best Out Of Your Android Device With V6 Supercharger
I would normally go into a big rant on how certain apps for Android are not necessary because of how efficient Android is at managing memory and apps, whether active or not. Apparently, there is always room for improvement as shown by XDA member zeppelinrox V6 Supercharger and everything included in this thread is something that, if you have the time to go through the whole thing, is worth a read. The dev has created various tools and guides that will essentially allow you to make your device far more efficient than it already is when it comes to memory usage and even battery usage. One of the perks of using this tools is that you will not longer have to wait for your home launcher (whichever this may be) to finish redrawing your screen. This means less waiting in between doing different tasks such as browsing and chatting, or even writing. As stated earlier the thread, the first few posts by the OP in particular, are full of information that you must sit down to read if you are interested in learning a few things about the inner workings of Android.
Please leave some feedback for the dev as it will be highly appreciated.
This script will rearrange and optimize android’s OOM groupings so that the lowmemorykiller will work the way you want it to.
You can find more information in the original thread.

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...
