GravityBox Xposed Module Now Android Nougat-Compatible

The GravityBox Xposed Framework Module is now compatible with Android Nougat, its creator "C3C076" announced earlier this week. The change comes as part of the 7.0.1 update to the module which is entirely open-source and available for download and inspection on GitHub by following the banner below. The Bratislava, Slovakia-based indie developer said that the latest version of the software was both made and tested on the Nexus 5 and Nexus 5X running the stock versions of Android 7.0 and 7.1 Nougat, as well as the OnePlus 3T running the vanilla build of OxygenOS 4.5 from the Chinese original equipment manufacturer. As is usually the case with software solutions delivered by the Android indie dev scene, GravityBox may behave unpredictably on any devices on which it wasn't tested and you're installing it at your own risk, though its developer's track record and general performance still suggest that no major issues are to be expected.

The Android Nougat-enabled version of GravityBox comes shortly after the Xposed Framework itself became compatible with this particular iteration of Google's ubiquitous mobile operating system. The software comes with the newest performance and compatibility tweaks and fixes from its creator and is available in the official Xposed Framework repository on GitHub. The module itself ships with a broad range of options allowing you to tweak your Android user experience, covering everything from customizable system buttons and wireless charging sounds to volume keys reorientation, lock screen rotation, and granular controls for the position of virtually every interface element of the operating system. GravityBox isn't the only Xposed Framework Module of its kind but it's regarded as one of the most comprehensive ones that are presently available for download from the World Wide Web and are regularly updated.

While the Xposed Framework took a long time to make the jump to Android Nougat, it should be available for Android 8.0 Oreo much sooner, meaning that GravityBox's transition to the currently latest OS build should also be more timely next time around. If you're able to install Xposed on your smartphone or tablet and are aware of the risks that come with it, GravityBox can serve as a versatile entry point to the world of Android modding.
