Custom ROMs and mods allowing you to tint system bars have always been popular. This has been especially true with the previous hype surrounding KitKat’s leaked images, as well as the upcoming changes in Lollipop allowing developers to easily set the status bar’s color.
Over the years, we’ve seen different implementations for this in various ROMs such as AOSPA, ThinkingBridge‘s Chameleon Engine and OmniROM. Flashing one of these custom ROM may not be feasible for all users, though. Luckily, the Xposed Framework allowed this feature to be made in a more portable manner. We’ve already seen Tinted Status Bar by XDA Recognized Developer MohammadAG and Tinted Translucent St. . . READ ON »

The status and navigation bars are probably the most commonly used areas of your device (that is, assuming you have a navigation bar), and they’re definitely two of the more heavily customizable parts using Xposed modules. Android 5.0 Lollipop will also bring refreshed navigation and status bars, with new, streamlined shapes for the icons.
A new Xposed module by XDA Recognized Developer MohammadAG aims to make your navigation bar even more useful, while also cleaning your status bar some more. Battery Home Icon replaces the normal home button in your navigation bar with a Lollipop-styled version, which also shows you the current battery level. The result is a battery indicator that looks like t. . . READ ON »

A couple of days ago, we talked about GravityBox receiving an update. One of the new features introduced in the update was “Heads Up mode,” which was discovered hidden somewhere in KitKat’s code. It’s a neat way of showing the notification in a floating window, implemented recently into CyanogenMod’s nightlies.
But if all you want to do is try out “Heads Up mode” on your device, you don’t have to install the GravityBox or pay for an in-app purchase. If you prefer a module with a single purpose instead, you might be interested in trying a module made by XDA Recognized Developer MohammadAG. This module is very simple and does its job superbly. If you want to test . . . READ ON »

LG’s KnockOn has been very popular on recent LG devices. This feature was then expanded on their latest device, the LG G3. Originally introduced on the G3, Knock Code then allows you to unlock with a knock pattern. But here at XDA, we don’t like features being device-specific, so we work on replicating the idea on other devices.
In this episode of XDA Xposed Tuesday, XDA Developer TV Producer TK reviews an Xposed Module that lets you unlock your device with a Knock Code. XDA Recognized Developer MohammadAG created the Knock Code module. TK shows off the modules and gives his thoughts, so check out this Xposed Tuesday video.. . . READ ON »

“Ok Google, write my article for me.” Well I guess it was worth a try. Users on the Google Experience Launcher have now gotten used to being able to say “OK Google” to launch Google Voice Search. Wouldn’t it be nice to have this functionality on third party launchers?
In this episode of XDA Xposed Tuesday, XDA Developer TV Producer TK reviews an Xposed Module that lets you launch Google Search with ‘Ok Google’ from your home screen on third party launchers. XDA Recognized Developer MohammadAG created the OK Google for Third Party Launchers module. TK shows off the modules and gives his thoughts, so check out this Xposed Tuesday video.. . . READ ON »

Just a few hours ago, we talked about an Xposed module that lets users control their wake gestures when used in conjunction with a compatible kernel. This wake gesture functionality most resembles HTC’s Motion Launch, which lets users wake their devices and launch various apps using simple gestures.
What if instead of launching applications using gestures, you’d like to use gestures to secure your device? LG offers such functionality through the Knock Code security system found on their newer handsets. But thanks to XDA Recognized Developer MohammadAG and the magic of Xposed Framework, you can use it on your device as well.
There are a few caveats with this implementation. For sta. . . READ ON »

One of the most useful features introduced alongside the Moto X was the “OK Google” hotword functionality. This was then brought to the Google Nexus 5, and later other Nexus devices, by way of the Google Experience Launcher. For the few who are unfamiliar, this feature allows you to issue certain commands entirely by voice. The Google Experience Launcher is great, but it’s not nearly as configurable as other launchers such as Apex, Nova, or other crowd favorites.
Just yesterday, we talked about how OmniROM added customizable hotword functionality into their nightlies. However, most alternative launchers are still unable to partake in the “OK Google” experie. . . READ ON »

XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s Xposed framework has been on every root user’s mouth for the last year or so. This revolutionary tool for customizing Android without actually touching the ROM itself has been a heaven sent tool for modders out there to share what they can do with their knowledge, without having to actually cook a ROM every time they want to implement a new feature. We normally feature them on the Portal and they even have their own XDA Developer TV segment called Xposed Tuesday. A major contributor of modules as of late has been XDA Forum Member MohammadAG, who has provided various other mods including a tinted status bar, recovery of the good old car dock mode, unlocking usi. . .

Here at XDA Developers, we’ve written about many topics. However, one particular topic has become extremely popular. Of course, I’m talking about the Xposed Framework by XDA Recognized Developer rovo89. With Xposed, you can customize almost every element in Android—and I dare you to question the word “almost.”
One of the most popular Xposed developers around, XDA Senior Member MohammadAG, created yet another interesting module. This time, inspired by iOS, he added a feature to scroll to the top of a list by tapping on your status bar. It’s quite useful, especially while using the phone app, as sometimes the list can be really long. This module doesn’t yet w. . . READ ON »
