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...
Understand Your Sleep Patterns with ElectricSleep for Android
Tossing and turning in bed is the reality for many adults nowadays. The amount of stress that we are put under during our waking days far outweighs any ability to completely rest at night. There is a full branch of science dedicated to studying and understanding sleeping patterns that people go through every day but since not all of us have PhD’s to study and understand what really goes on, we have to depend on other tools to try and make some sense out of our sleeping patterns. XDA member jondwillis has created one of these tools that will allow you to better understand (and even improve) the way you sleep. The device will record any movements that you make during a light sleep night and will sound a gentle alarm to wake you up. The app will record all the data and you will be able to study it, understand it, and hopefully use the new knowledge acquired to improve on your sleeping patterns.
If this sounds like something you may need to use, please drop by the thread and provide some feedback for the dev, so that the app can be improved and fixed if bugs are present.
In an effort to spread its popularity, I though I would share my open-source app, ElectricSleep here. It has been in beta for a couple months and is starting to get pretty stable and more and more feature rich.
You can find more information in the application 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...
