    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.

    clock seconds I quite like, but the others are mainly animations which may float many people's Bismarcks

    *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 :

    Hello dynomot! :)

    [​IMG]

    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.

    Go on... let your wife root it for you and have some fun. ;)

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

    dynomot Well-Known Member

    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.



    PS- The cat died !!! Is Hawker OK ;)

    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 :)

    Last I heard was that Hawker is fine in his cave on Mount Doom in the Welsh Mountains. He's hibernating until someone pokes him with a stick! :security:


    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.
