XDA Member Ports PlayStation 4 Remote Play Feature For All Rooted Android 4.0 Devices

XGELS Hits v2.0 With Custom App Drawer Tabs, New Notification Badge Options, And More

Google's official Google Now Launcher is pretty cool, but it's lacking the settings you'd find in Nova and other third-party launchers. There's a way to fix that if you're rooted with Xposed, though. Xposed GEL Settings (or XGELS to its friends) is an app that adds features to GNL so you can have the best of both worlds. This app just hit v2.0 and it's packing some new goodies.

ChromePIE is not a delicious browser-flavored snack cake, it's a module that adds swiping controls to Chrome, modeled after the popular LMT-PIE navigation bar replacement.

Stump Root Is A One-Click Root For Your LG G3 From Any US Carrier, Including Sprint

Love it or hate it, the LG G3 is one of the top flagship devices of 2014. With a set of specs that will make even the most jaded Nexus warrior a bit jealous, it's no wonder that the handset has gained a few fans. Unfortunately, LG's software customizations still leave a lot to be desired, and many users have turned to rooting their phone to take back some level of control over the experience.

XDA Developer Finds A Way To Enable Screen Casting On Most Rooted Devices

Right now, the ability to cast your Android device's screen to Chromecast is limited to a very small number of devices – mostly the newest Nexus devices and a couple of popular modern handsets like the Galaxy S5 and HTC One. That leaves a lot of users out in the cold who may want to check out the service.

Xposed GEL Settings Updated To 1.8 With Per-App Icon Selection And Folder Swipe Actions

I don't think the developer behind the Xposed Google Experience Launcher Settings (XGELS) module will be satisfied until he's made the stock Google Search launcher every bit as flexible as Nova and Apex. The latest update to the popular module adds even more customization options. Premium users can now assign custom icons to a single app or the app drawer icon, with or without a full icon theme applied, like most of the more advanced launchers allow.
