We all know by now the LG G4 has risen up to the challenge from other high end flagships and established its name as one of the phones to beat this year in terms of specifications and performance. And as it goes with any flagship there’s always room to improve.
Now this improvement may not always come from the manufacturers. Instead the public has to turn to the one person who can help them bring out the best in their device, the developers. One such tool that allows extended customization of the smartphone usability without imposing much strain on the hardware or messing around with stock settings is the ever popular Xposed Framework.
Now for those beginners put there who don’t know what Xposed is and what it does. Xposed is a framework for modules that can change the behavior of the system and apps without touching any APKs. It means that modules can work for different versions and even ROMs without any changes (as long as the original code was not changed too much). It’s also easy to undo. As all changes are done in the memory, you just need to deactivate the module and reboot the device. Multiple modules can do changes to the same part of the system or app.
This tutorial will show you how to install and use Xposed Framework on your rooted LG G4.
