Xposed Framework 2.2 Brings Module Repo and 4.3 Support
We’ve talked quite a bit about the the Xposed Framework recently. And that’s with good reason, as Xposed allows for an unprecedented amount of safe and easily reversible modification that would otherwise require extensive and burdensome APK modification. Thankfully, XDA Recognized Developer rovo89 (with help from Recognized Contributor Tungstwenty and others) created Xposed, allowing us to make the changes that we need at runtime instead of dealing with APK decompilation and smali editing.
Since Xposed’s initial appearance, we’ve seen the framework progress with a better installer, various bugfixes, and whatnot. However, there was still one fundamental piece missing: an integrated module discovery experience. Luckily, this has now been rectified, as Xposed Installer now features a module repository, which can help you discover and download new modules, as well as make sure that the modules you have installed are fully updated. The latest update also provides compatibility with Android 4.3.
Head over to the framework thread or simply update Xposed through the Xposed installer to get up to speed with the latest update. If you wish to browse the repo from the comfort of your web browser, you can do that too at the official Xposed Repo site.[Thanks to Tungstwenty for the heads up.]

I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. 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...
