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...
Nook Color Running Honeycomb From SDK
By now, you are all probably aware of the existence of the SDK for the upcoming, tablet oriented Android 3.0 OS, aka Honeycomb. Since Google couldn’t wait for this to get out for the anxious devs out there, they went ahead and released it to the masses. However, the devs are not just happy to run an emulated version in their PC as this is meant to be mobile in nature, so a few members have been working hard at it and extracted the image for the OS. This was then turned into something flashable and was flashed into a Nook Color. XDA member deeper-blue shows us a video of the end result of that. Just as any SDK port, the new OS makes the device laggy, with tons of features missing (including camera and 3D acceleration). However, this is a nice proof of concept and a bright glimpse into the future that will be Honeycomb. The tables on this will likely turn by the time AOSP hits the shelves, so if patience is indeed one of your virtues, you may want to use it.
What do you think of this new OS so far? Do you think it is as rich and feature full as Google has claimed so far? Please leave us your thoughts.
graphics acceleration more or less working. The SGX driver seems too old for some buffer request of android 3.0, so right now the statusbar is invisible but still functional. Not sure if I can fix that or have to wait for the AOSP release.
What is not working… pretty much everything else, no accelerometer, no wlan, no sound. Haven’t started working on those things yet.

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...
