Xposed Framework
« on: November 25, 2013, 05:39:50 AM »
Well, how about this for the power of the Android Community.

Xposed Framework is your gateway into modding your phone with a rooted device. So popular is this framework, the Android community brought the developer an N5 and he has wasted no time porting it over to 4.4.

The downloadable .APK offers up hooks in the android system that specific modules can latch onto to change some low level (and previously unmodifiable) settings.

The user will need to install the APK, download the modules that they want to play with, enable them and then get to modding!

There are all sorts of options. Personally I have downloaded Advanced power Menu (gives options to reboot into recovery direct from power button) and Gravity box.

Notice from my screenshot:

Centered clock, battery %, lockring shortcuts and these mods are just scraping the surface.







Follow the specific thread for the N5 on XDA here:

Yup I'm using the Gravity Box module as I did on my N4. I've lowered the height of the Navbar, the menu button is always shown, KitKat battery icon with %, more QS tiles, Wi-Fi & Bluetooth now switch on and off with a single press (how it should be on Android), solid black background in settings and the extended Power menu. Lots of other features with Gravity Box too.

Battery icon with percentage and smaller Navbar.*



Solid black background in settings instead of Holo black/grey gradient.



Gravity Box settings.



*Softkeys altered with SoftkeyZ (root required).

Good post Jay.

I see you're also playing with Fauxs beta community.

This post has been sent to you from Harwich where I happen to find myself with my work today! Haha! #smallworld

OK, so I got the xposed framework installed, downloaded and installed gravitybox, enabled it and rebooted. But I keep getting an error saying the gravity box framework is not responding. Exiting.
What am I doing wrong? I tried uninstalling everything and starting again but get the same thing.

Danny, are you rooted? My bad in the original post as it seems root access privileges are required, I have amended it.  :-[

But...if you are were you prompted for root access?

Yes I am rooted. I granted root access to the xposed framework when it was installed, and I've made sureim running the latest versions of the framework and module. I've switched back to Dalvic from ART too, but still no joy :(

You need to activate the module, open the Xposed installer and select Modules, tick the Gravity Box module and reboot. Now try...

NOM, small world indeed... lol

I haven't tried Faux kernel yet, testing Franco atm. Joined Faux beta community ready for testing though.

I have already activated the module and rebooted. When I open GB it says 'Waiting for response from Gravity Box system framework' with a spinning wheel and then 'Gravity Box system framework not responding. Exiting'. I can press back at this stage but all I'm left with is a blank white screen with the GB header.

Another weird scenario, what Superuser are you using?

EDIT - What versions are you using?

Xposed Installer 2.4 beta 1?



And Gravity Box 2.7.6??

Fantastic post OP!  What clock/weather/alarm widget are you using?

Does Xposed work with ART?

Now they've resolved the whats-app issue with ART I was going to make the switch but read somewhere that it's not compatible with Xposed Framework yet? Can anyone confirm or deny this?

aagha, that widget will be Chronus.

S2 I don't think we are there yet with ART and Exposed, but I do know that there are API's in the code for the next version of android that all but confirm that ART will replace Davlvik altogether. Based on that, I would expct some compatibility soon....
