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...
WSM Tools Brings Impressive Customization to MIUI V5
Not too long ago, XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s Xposed Framework (thread) was updated to add support for several new platforms. Among those to benefit were MIUI users. With version 2.3, anyone running a MIUI ROM based on Android 4.0 or later could access the almost endless tweaks housed within the hundreds of Xposed modules currently available. Naturally, however, not every available module works perfectly on dramatically different ROMs such as ones based on MIUI.
In order to better meet the needs of MIUI users, XDA Senior Members BalcanGSM and BurgerZ created WSM Tools based on rovo89’s open source Xposed Framework. The project, just like Xposed, allows you to modify applications during runtime, without actually interfering with the application itself.
WSM Tools is compatible with both Xposed modules and modules written expressly for WSM Tools. Within the app itself, you can access two repositories of modules. You can access modules from the official Xposed repository, as well as a WSM-specific repo. Currently, there are 12 WSM-specific modules available, as well as an open API for creating more.
Naturally, you’ll need root access to install the framework, and thus far, it is only tested on MIUI v5. Make your way over to the application thread to learn more.

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...
