Switch Your Phone Vibration Settings with Xposed
A couple of months ago, we featured an app called Vybe. This is an interesting and fun app that allows users to easily and freely customize the vibration patterns of incoming calls and SMS with no risky tinkering of system files. Although vibrations may not be the most important feature to personalize, it’s good to know that the option is there if you’re wishing for something different.
XDA Senior Member itandy introduced a mod called Android Phone Vibrator, which provides additional custom options for your phone’s vibration. This mod comes in the form of an Xposed module, so it must be activated through rovo89‘s Xposed Framework, which most of you would no doubt be familiar with. After a quick reboot, you’ll be able to access and activate a host of vibration customizations such as:
- Vibrate when an outgoing call is connected
- Vibrate when an incoming call is connected
- Vibrate when an incoming call is waiting
- Vibrate when a call has ended
- Vibrate during outgoing call at 45 second mark of every minute
- Vibrate once at fixed time after outgoing call is connected
- Adjusting vibration intensity
Itandy also includes a handy FAQ in the thread, providing a possible fix for an issue that some have experienced, as well as detailed step-by-step procedures to fix the problem.
If you would like to check this mod out, head over to the original thread for more information and download. The source code for the module can also be found at its Github.

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year. Not too long ago we featured a...
HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads. Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
