Cheers old son!

GravityBox users can just go into Xposed Installer > Download and there is the option to update to the latest GravityBox, above, there.

For those who wish to try XuiMod, go to Xposed Installer > Download and select to download it from the list.

Typical. Trust the cheeseroller to get an easy ride!
Even rebooted to see if it refreshes, but still on old version.

I refuse to update manually now!

*Waves from the unadventurous Note 3 Forums - Hobbit tablet in hand*

Does GravityBox work on TW Roms ? It says not, but I guess I'm missing something (the continuing fun here perhaps ?).

Because I am (bored), not with my Note 3 (because it is a fine Hobbit tablet),and this is quite good :

GravityBox requires you to be rooted and Xposed framework installed. It is very configurable and is a major enhancement to any ROM, odexed or deodexed. There are loads of modules to choose from. I'm running it on the ported Google Edition firmware.

You need to come back to the S4 forum... I haven't had this much fun since the cat died!

My Note 3 is already rooted and I'm using the Xposed framework with XuiMod and Wanam Xposed with stock firmware (Still 4.3 ATM) - so there !

Seriously, I'm in the middle of writing a rooting guide from scratch involving links and pictures for the poor souls who think it is some sort of witch craft to root their devices, and yet want to do things only being rooted can provide. I live in a root forum, population - me, with the odd guest asking questions. I can only say- gawd it's hard work writing a guide for complete novices. At the risk of making Hawker and Syd unwell, I can only say your as daft as I am, Ironass, writing a comprehensive idiot proof guide to rooting is hard work. I salute you.

I know how you feel mate, i was in the same boat until the reprobates eventually turned up;-) i had even messages ironass to ask if copying his s2 guide would be OK (adding the necessary changes myself) thankfully that's when he told me he was already working on one :-)

When writing a, "Dummies Guide", never underestimate the human capacity for screwing up!

The S4 guide took about 2 or 3 weeks to compile and involved about 30+ re-writes before publishing, (and is still updated on a regular basis as situations change). Also, number the sections so that if someone has a problem you can refer them to the relevant information without a lot of explanation.

Xposed framework version 2.5 (final) is up!

"Rewritten framework installation/uninstallation
Uses interactive su (via libsuperuser) to provide improved compatibility with different Superuser apps
Better feedback when root access fails (doesn't freeze the app anymore)
Offers installation via custom recovery (CWM/TWRP), either flashing the file automatically or manually
Safemode to disable Xposed with hardware keys to get out of (most) bootloops
Compatibility with Sony/LG ROMs (4.3 and 4.4), Meizu ROMs (4.4)
Debug setting to disable resource hooking as a temporary workaround for incompatibilities with some theming engines (not all modules can be used in this mode)
There are also other improvements and fixes, especially many translations updates.
In case you get a message "Segmentation fault" during installation, you can now download an additional app which provides statically compiled versions of BusyBox (a lot bigger, but should work with every ROM). It's not needed otherwise.

Quick explanation of the safemode: It was developed by @Tungstwenty and makes it possible to disable Xposed by repeatedly pressing one of the hardware buttons during early startup. The phone will vibrate twice when the first key press has been detected. Then you have five seconds to press the same button four more times. Each key press will be confirmed with a short vibration; the final one with a long vibration. It creates /data/data/de.robv.android.xposed.installer/conf/disabled, which prevents most of Xposed's actions (e.g. no hooks are made and no modules are loaded). There's no 100% guarantee that this will get you out of a bootloop, but in most cases it should.
"

Download and update via Xposed app.
