XblastTools for Xposed Brings Plethora of Visual Tweaks
Part of the fun of the Android customization experience is tailoring everything to our liking. Naturally, this extends to visual tweaking with themes, and the like. And if you like to get down and dirty with the options, you probably don’t want to settle for any given prepackaged theme, opting instead to select all of the parameters yourself.
To bring a cohesive and integrated theming experience, XDA Senior Member FemBlack has created XblastTools. The modification comes in the form of an Xposed module, and as such requires XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s versatile Xposed Framework (thread) to run. With the module installed, you are given a plethora of visual customization options including clock color, custom clock text, data color, rotation options, status indicator colors, RAM usage in the recent apps panel, CRT effect for screen off, notification ticker color, toast notification color, and much more.

If you’ve been looking for an all-inclusive visual tweaking tool, head over to FemBlack’s module thread and give this a go.

For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
