Android L theme available for Xposed devices

If you've wanted to experience the new Material design in Android L that almost everyone is talking about, this new Android L theme package might be for you. The only catch to this almost easy to install theme is that you need to have the Xposed Framework installed, which means you need to have a rooted device.

Android L and Xposed: Keep Calm and Wait for It

After CyanogenMod published its blog post about its plans for Android L support, Xposed Framework creator rovo89 is making a similar appeal to the Android community for a bit of objective analysis and a lot of patience. The summary of the situation is that Android L is still a fast-moving target that it isn't practical to work on polishing Xposed for it. The developer would rather release a version that works well a bit later, rather than one that is too early but barely functions.

Sony Tablet S finally receives the gift of root

With any triple-A Android phone or tablet, it's almost a given that root access will be achieved within days of release - or sometimes days before. But every once in a while one slips through the cracks, often a device that's got enough brand name of a little interest but is priced outside of most people's budgets. Lenovo's ThinkPad Tablet, which only got root last month, is a prime example. Sony's Tablet S has been available in the US for about five months and longer than that in Japan, but it's taken this long for the Android mod community to get around to giving it the root treatment. Tablet S owners, you can send your thanks to Dan Rosenberg, who's done this for a growing number of Android devices.
