We are delighted to announce that starting on April 20th, a finalized deal with Google will make XDA Developers a software development division for the beloved search giant. This exciting transition will start as early as next week, where new XDA Talent Scouts from Google will browse our forums and reward the best contributors and offer them software development or design positions as well. A new set of XDA Forum Moderators from Google’s Legal Department will also make sure that...
Xposed Module: Preference Injector
XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s Xposed framework has been on every root user’s mouth for the last year or so. This revolutionary tool for customizing Android without actually touching the ROM itself has been a heaven sent tool for modders out there to share what they can do with their knowledge, without having to actually cook a ROM every time they want to implement a new feature. We normally feature them on the Portal and they even have their own XDA Developer TV segment called Xposed Tuesday. A major contributor of modules as of late has been XDA Forum Member MohammadAG, who has provided various other mods including a tinted status bar, recovery of the good old car dock mode, unlocking using NFC, and AOSP lockscreen on TouchWiz devices, among many others.
This time around, the module itself does not alter functionality but rather focuses on another aspect of Android modding: aesthetics. Settings for most Xposed modules can be easily accessed through the Xposed app itself. However, for some, going through yet another set of settings can be somewhat cumbersome. Well, our dev decided that it was time to make settings and preferences management more in line with the rest of the settings in the Android Settings.apk. So, he made a module to mash these together. The new module shows the settings for all Xposed modules in the Settings area, thus making the entire UI, a single, more unified version of settings.
The dev himself states that the addon provides no benefit or functionality, but it does make it easier to manage the settings for the entire device (global as well as for each individual module) a much simpler ordeal. The dev also warns of incompatibility with some TouchWiz ROMs. However, many people have already reported no issues with TW Samsung devices.
What are you waiting for? Get some much needed organization in your device and manage it all from one place. One settings app to rule them all… You can find more information in the original thread.

The lockscreen is a part of the OS that we see hundreds of times every day, whether we're using Android or iOS. The look of the lockscreen depends on the Android version, device manufacturer or ROM chef. In short, it differs for almost every user. Luckily enough, users can use third party alternatives that bring more features. One such application is Hi Locker, developed by XDA Senior Member thotran7989. Hi Locker can be found both on the Play store and...
Here on XDA TV we have a series we like to call Must Have Apps. These are apps that we think are so great and useful that you must have them. We’ve given this title to such programs as Pushbullet, Light Flow, Helium, the AROMA File Manager, ROM Toolbox and Pocket Casts. But today we have an app that surpasses them all. Former XDA TV Producer Adam Outler offers up a must have application. In this video, XDA TV Producer...
