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...
Ubuntu Ported To Nexus One
The Nexus One has finally joined the likes of many Windows Mobile devices with this recent release that provides it with Ubuntu (a Linux distro) support. This hack was made possible and available by XDA member zedomax, who managed to pull this off with very little support for hacks of this nature. The software he produced can now be used by anyone who owns a Nexus One, as long as they also have busybox installed on the device.
Here is a quick cut out of the quide:
Over the Independence Day weekend, I was able to install both Debian and Ubuntu to run on my Nexus One.
I spent about 5 days straight of craziness, even trying to get it working while my friends were barbecuing tri-tips and firing off fireworks in the background. Well, let’s just say I started the challenge to myself of being able to run Ubuntu couple days back and it literally drove me crazy. I couldn’t stop myself until I got some kind of results, not just being able to run Ubuntu under Chroot command line.
My original goal was to actually run WordPress and make a portable smartphone web server (which I did with the Palm Pre before) but I ran into MySQL being a jerk and not being able to create a new socket for some reason. (If anyone has some advice on that or help me on it, please don’t hesitate to e-mail me at zedomax at gmail dot com.)
You can get more information and the full details in the port thread.

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...
