Xposed Framework Module for the AT&T Galaxy S 4
Got yourself a brand new Galaxy S 4? Are you looking for some fun mods to make it truly your own? If you’re about to apply some custom “ROMs” that really happens to be more of a theme than a ROM, you should consider trying something new using the Xposed Framework instead.
Not too long ago, we talked about the relatively new Xposed Framework by XDA Recognized Developer rovo89 and how it enables end users to apply modifications that would otherwise require flashing update.zip files. In addition to making the experience safer for
guinea pigs testers, Xposed also makes the process significantly easier and less intimidating to new users, as long as the framework is present in the installed ROM.
Making use of rovo89’s tool, XDA Recognized Developer Nottach has released an Xposed module to give your device some added personality and features. Known as NottachXposed, this module overhauls your AT&T Galaxy S 4’s status bar, launcher, lock screen, framework, messaging app, and more. Here are some of the highlights:
Color all the things!
Circle battery icon option
Any color circle battery
Any color quick toggles
Show date with status bar clock
Hide headset apps notification
Hide headset connected icon
Any color signal icons
Any color status bar icons
Smart alarm icon options
Hide quick setting labels
Hide quick setting indicator bars
Fixes and optimizations
Other stuff I forgot
