GravityBox for Xposed finally arrives for Lollipop

GravityBox can make a claim for the title of “most loved Xposed module” and most people would probably agree. If you have at any point in time tweaked your Android device using the Xposed Framework, then you will (at the very least) have heard of GravityBox. Simply put, it was a module that gave your stock ROM features that seemingly only custom ROMs could put out. But Android 5.0 Lollipop came and broke Xposed Framework compatibilities, leaving GravityBox users in limbo of whether they should jump to Lollipop.

Voice commands for WiFi, Bluetooth, Flashlight now works in Lollipop

Android 5.0 Lollipop has not arrived yet for a lot of Anrdoid users, but it is slowly trickling down to various OEMs (not as fast as everyone would like).

Android 5.1 update arriving next month with more fixes as usual

We already mentioned earlier this month that Android 5.1 will soon catch up. Why, the version is being developed for Android One and Nexus devices and we're certain the rest of Android Lollipop-running gadgets will get the software update too. Problem is, not all latest Android phones have received Android 5.0 yet. Google is still mum on the issue but HTC's VP of Product Management Mo Versi recently hinted that the next MR (Maintenance Release) will be next month.

Android 5.0 Lollipop ready for T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S5

The Samsung Galaxy S5 getting the sweet Android Lollipop update is old news. Even if Google has released the software and phone manufacturers have tested the version, it's really up to the network carrier when such will roll out to subscribers and owners.

The Galaxy S5 Google Play Edition was also rumored to arrived with Android 5.0.

ASUS rolls out new Fonepad 7 with Android Lollipop

ASUS recently introduced a new Fonepad 7. The phablet with model number FE375CL runs Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box so this means no need to upgrade from KitKat. This year's FonePad 7 is the first Lollipop-powered device from the Taiwanese manufacturer. This version looks very similar to the previous model but of course, specs have been improved. There's the 7-inch LED Backlight WXGA IPS screen panel, 1280 x 800 pixel resolution, 1.3 GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3530 processor, a 5 megapixel rear camera, and a 2 megapixel front-facing camera.

First-gen Moto G getting Android 5.0 in the coming weeks

Before 2014 ended, we said that Motorola would be rolling out Lollipop for the 1st gen Moto G. Weeks of waiting are over, well at least, we don't have to wait for long as Motorola recently mentioned that the software update will arrive in the "upcoming weeks". This is good news for owners of the first Moto G especially since the 2nd-gen was the first smartphone to officially get Android 5.0 Lollipop last year.

Rejoice! Xposed Framework for Android 5.0 is finally here

It was a sad, sad day for modders when Android 5.0 was launched and people started realizing that Lollipop broke KitKat’s long-standing compatibility with Xposed Framework. It made modders and tweakers actually want to go outside (for once) and take long walks under the falling autumn leaves. So it is with great rejoicing that Xposed Framework is back – after a fashion – and that it is ready to start taking on Lollipop challenges.
