Xposed Framework is one of the most interesting projects available for Android. Almost every ROM, no matter whether it’s stock-based or not, can have extra features enabled or have existing features fixed. And the most interesting part of Xposed is that it works with almost every device, as well as most of the currently used Android versions.
One feature that can easily work in some ROMs but is often disabled is call recording. The Android OS can easily use your device’s hardware to record incoming and outgoing calls. To enable this feature, you need a software solution. One such solution was created by XDA Senior Member pyler who developed an Xposed Framework module that enables call recordin. . . READ ON »

While we are all wondering when Google will decide to officially release Android L and its Material Design-laden goods, those who own significantly older devices are in no way under the false impression that they will receive the update directly. One such device is the Motorola Droid X, which was released way back in July 2010 but is still used by quite a lot of people here on XDA.
This phone originally shipped with Eclair, and now it has received a pretty stable port of CyanogenMod 11, thanks to XDA Senior Members Palmbeach05 for his early work, Aaahh for the initial release, and m.ksy for maintaining the port. Yes, that’s right, a 4-year old device can run KitKat, and run it quite well. Initial port. . . READ ON »

Around the time of the OnePlus One‘s release, the CyanogenMod team decided to use refresh their Theme Chooser. One of the new functions that has been added is an ability to change the font, system-wide, without messing with /system/fonts folder. To change your system fonts using this new functionality, the font must be made as an application. If you have a favorite font somewhere on your PC and want to use it on Android, now you have a chance to do it really easily.

This past week was quite a frenzy for Android fans, with Google I/O bringing a number of announcements regarding Android and its expansion to our wrists, cars, and living rooms. Perhaps the most significant was Google’s unveiling of Android L. The L release is slated to bring a rather significant departure in the Android UI, taking us from transitioning from Holo (first seen in Android 3.0 Honeycomb) to the new Material Design.
The Android L Developer Preview was launched for the Nexus 5 or a Nexus 7 (2013) last week. But while the rest of us twiddle our thumbs in anticipation of its launch in the Fall, there are some things we can do to give our device the L look, such as installing the apps ex. . . READ ON »
