Customize your Galaxy devices a lot? You will want to try out Wanam Xposed then. It is a free Android application that can tweak lot of stock Samsung TouchWiz Android 4.2+ firmware. Yes, it is still workable on custom ROM as well. I am using it on Galaxy S4 custom ROM now. Here are some examples of the useful features that it brings – Call recording, 4 ways reboot (Reboot, Recovery, Hotboot and Download), secured Samsung keyboard, long back key to kill app, force disable camera shutter… Good stuffs are not free. It requires root access and Xposed Framework 2.2. Trust me, it worth the price.
Love to try custom Android ROM? CyanogenMod makes a special tool for you to ease the job. Yes, CyanogenMod Installer will help you to install CM ROM in easy step by step way. No root access is need. No need to unlock bootloader as well. Only stock firmware / ROM is needed as long as your Android devices are in supported list. Lot of the popular devices like Google Nexus series – Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2012 & 2013) and Nexus 10, Samsung Galaxy series like Galaxy S2, S3, S4, Note and Note 2, and finally HTC One. I am sure that more devices will be included soon.

Rejoice… The official Android 4.3 firmware for Samsung Galaxy S4 (both I9500 and I9505) is here. Yes, you can enjoy the latest and greatest Android 4.3 features and improvements from Samsung. However, it does bring one thing that I don’t prefer – KNOX support (which is not friendly with root access and custom modification = warranty void). So far we can’t reverse KNOX status now. The implementation is already in Galaxy Note 3 and pushing to Galaxy S4 latest firmware now. So far, India, Indonesia, Russia and Vietnam already received the update. Malaysia should come soon…
