XuiMod Delivers ROM-Specific Customizations via Xposed

If you own a device that happens to have a healthy ROM development section here at XDA, you more than likely have already tried your fair share of different aftermarket, community-driven ROMs. Unfortunately, changing from one ROM to the next generally means leaving behind certain ROM-specific features and customizations. Thankfully, we’ve seen a few methods in the past that deliver analogs of these ROM-specific features by leveraging the power of XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s Xposed Framework (thread).

XDA Senior Member zst123 created XuiMod to piece together a small collection of unique ROM-specific features from, along with a few tweaks of his own. The current build (1.1) supports the following features, as stated by zst123 himself:

  • Seconds in StatusBar Clock (eg. 10:59:59am)
    (Customizable with SimpleDateFormat and Boldable)
  • BatteryBar (grabbed from PACman ROM)
  • Transitions Animation (grabbed from Xylon ROM – xylon_grouper_011_12-08-2012.zip to be exact)
    (I found out later that it looks same as Nexus 7 2013 animation. Hmm. Google?)
  • ListView Animation (grabbed from RootBox)
  • ListView persistent cache (Please experiment with this. Slower phones will have more noticeable effects.)
  • Volume Disable in Lockscreen
    (Useful for those who have volume wake. Don’t want my pocket to change Ring Mode during meetings. Don’t want to disable volume wake too, my power button is dying)

Naturally, the credit to most of these features must go to their original creators, as well as the creators of the Xposed Framework. As such, zst123 has expressed gratitude to rovo89, Tungstwenty, C3C076, MoKee ROM Team, RootBox, Xylon ROM Team, and the PACman ROM Team for their contributions.

Head over to the module thread to get started.

What Do You Think About Fingerprint Scanners?

More and more phones are featuring fingerprint scanners, and with many promising developments and it being natively supported on Android M, we can soon expect to see them on smartphones everywhere.

There are concerns regarding security, but nonetheless the industry seems to be embracing it with open arms. What do you think?

What’s Next for Samsung and Its Flagships?

If we were to say that the Galaxy S6 was a leap of faith made by Samsung, we wouldn't be too wrong. After all, the device marked a definite change in how Samsung perceived the market and its own place in it, as it stood amongst the signs of decline which started with the critical reception of the Galaxy S5.
