Pie Controls for All Devices Froyo Onward
Not too long ago, we featured a couple of Xposed modules aimed at emulating some of Paranoid Android’s functionality on other ROMs. The first gives you an experience similar to Paranoid Android’s open source Halo interface. The second gives you per-app controls for things like dpi, language, and much more. Due to requirements inherent to the Xposed framework, only devices running Ice Cream Sandwich or later could participate.
Now thanks to XDA Senior Member EatHeat, you can have an experience relatively similar to Paranoid Android’s Pie Controls on any rooted device running Froyo or later. It is important to point out, however, that this is not Paranoid Android’s Pie Controls. As such, you won’t find all of the same features and configuration options. However, EatHeat’s implementation allows for a good amount of tweaking, both cosmetic and functional. EatHeat’s Pie Control allows you to customize visible applications and buttons, color, inner and outer glow, trigger parameters, vibration, and more.
Normally, this is a paid app on Google Play. However, EatHeat has generously made this available for free to the XDA community. Make your way over to the original thread to get started.

However, many websites can’t let it go - and in some ways, we are one of them - but only in response to claims that we think affect consumers...
The Xiaomi Mi Note Pro, announced on 15th Jan 2015, is Xiaomi's attempt at moving beyond the entry-level segment and targeting the higher end of the market which is usually Apple territory. At its heart, the phone follows on the Xiaomi philosophy by providing great specs at a great price. Talking about specs, the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro is a marked improvement over the Mi Note. While the dimensions and screen size remain the same, the resolution has received a...
Google is now sending out the first wave of invites to its new wireless service, Project Fi. Users are already signing up and have shared the process with us. So far, it is clear that Project Fi users can have their Google Voice number transferred across if they wish, which will automatically move their Google Voice credit over as well. What we have learned so far is that after a Voice number is transferred you will lose some functionality, but you will...
