Be sure that whenever the Xposed framework is updated to support a new Android version, the popular module GravityBox is to follow. It has been under a week since we learnt Xposed is compatible with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and now GravityBox has been given the same treatment.

For those who may not know, the Xposed framework allows users to tweak certain parts of the UI without having to manipulate the whole experience. On the other hand, GravityBox is a multi-tool of sorts, which allows for multiple of these manipulations. And boy can this module do a lot.

The post from developer C3C075 has a long list of feature highlights, including an expanded desktop, status bar icon coloring, status bar brightness control, battery indicator style, low battery warning control, minimal brightness setting, lockscreen tweaks, Dialer tweaks, screen recording, notification control and more.


But there are a few things to keep in mind. The module is designed to work with vanilla Android 6.0 (or close to it). It is also still unknown whether this works with other manufacturer UI’s, but you can test at your own risk. The developer also states this should not really be used as a way to get missing features on third-party ROMs. In fact, he goes on to mention it’s not designed to run with non-stock ROMs, and using it can cause unexpected behavior. Therefore, no support will be provided if you choose to use GravityBox with these types of ROMs.

Interested? Just head over to the developer’s post on XDA Developers (link below) to learn all the requisites and steps for installing this software. Remember, any type of tinkering may void your warranty and/or harm your device, so I would advice that you do your research before proceeding. It will be only your responsibility if something happens to your phone.

Still pushing ahead? Happy tweaking!
