Xposed Framework compatible with Android 6.0 devices soon

The Xposed Framework is one of the most variable tools around when it comes to tweakers and tinkerers of the community. If you install this framework on an Android device you will get an open door to hundreds if not thousands of possibilities of changing the way your mobile system reacts and your apps work.

 

Xposed Framework

 

 

You can choose from hundreds of modules you can install, and they allow you to do different things such as enabling Force Touch on Android, YouTube background playback or even making smartphones water resistant.

 

Each Android version requires changes and the devs behind Xposed Framework must rebuild the framework continuously to keep up with the OS changes, and this can take a lot of time to complete. There is no version of the framework that works on Marshmallow at the moment, but it is being worked on.

 

Some devs are working on some new builds of Xposed Framework for the newest flagships around, which means that an up and running viable build for most Android 6.0 devices will be out soon.

BetterBatteryStats – the app that tests and analyzes your battery function with Lollipop support

BetterBatteryStats has updated to v2.0 and it now has a Material look and full Lollipop support. The app allows users to test their battery and analyze the battery function of their smartphone or tablet.

 

Better stats

 

High battery drain can become a nuisance for most people, especially when they have no time to be keeping their phones plugged to a wall all day long just to let all the rogue apps run around in the background.

With this app you can analyze the behavior of your phone and discover applications that cause the drain while the smartphone should be asleep. This way you can implement corrective measures to save and improve your battery life.

The app spots drainers via information about the root cause and measures the effect of actions in order to reduce pain and detects changes in the phone profile and finds rogue apps.

Below you can find the changelog for version 2.0:

 

-all new and shiny, with light and dark themes
– Full Lollipop support
– Lots of I18N (see about dialog for credits)
– Added details about API stats to dumpfile
– System app dialog now links to the recovery ZIPs to be used as workaround
– Added import/export of preferences
– Added option to show/hide spinners
– Show SELinux Policy on System App dialog and Dumpfile
…. and much more (full change log: http://better.asksven.org/bbs-changelog/).

Among the most important updates are the import and export of preferences which help users who usually flash custom ROMs restore their data.

BetterBatteryStats can be found on Google Play Store and on XDA Developers.
