How to install the Android L fonts on any Android device

With Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, Google introduced a new font family for Android named Roboto. The company has been constantly updating the font with each new Android version making subtle but welcome refinements to it.

With Android L, Google has once again given its Roboto a major visual overhaul, which has been “refined extensively to work across the wider set of supported platforms.” Thanks to the Developer Preview of Android L, the fonts were already extracted for other Android users to enjoy on their device right away.

Stock Android does not feature any kind of clipboard manager, as seen on devices from LG and Samsung. While there are apps that replicate this functionality, they don’t feel native and have certain restrictions, thanks to limitations of the Android OS. In comes Native Clip Board Xposed module from developer DHM47, which as its name suggests, brings a native clipboard manager to stock Android.

LG G3 camera mod brings higher bitrate for 4K recording and 60FPS for HD videos

Thanks to OIS+ and laser assisted Auto Focus system, the LG G3′s camera is right among the best of what Android devices can offer. The images and videos, however, are ruined to a certain extent because of some overzealous post-processing from LG. Thankfully, a developer over at XDA forums has released a mod for the LG G3′s camera that bumps up the bitrate while recording videos and reduces the image compression to preserve the details.

Even though the Galaxy S5 runs on Android 4.4 KitKat, it lacks the lockscreen widgets feature introduced by Google in Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Samsung has not included any other similar feature on the Galaxy S5 as well, which is very much unlike its kitchen sink approach. Thankfully, if you have root access and are using Xposed framework on your Galaxy S5, you can easily reclaim lockscreen widgets using an Xposed module from developer goldie.

Thanks to KNOX, rooting Samsung devices released in the last one year or so has become an incredibly tough task. While rooting them is possible, it will end up triggering the KNOX hardware switch, which effectively voids the warranty of the device. Since this is a hardware level switch, there is no way to reverse this process or fix it later on.

Worse, carriers in the United States lock down the bootloader on their devices, which makes it near impossible for developers to unlock the device.

The One comes with a bootloader that can be unlocked using HTC’s official tool. Sadly, the tool does not support Verizon’s variant of the One because the carrier wants all handsets in its network to have a locked down bootloader.

New camera tweak for the LG G2 brings magic focus mode and 4K video recording

While the LG G2 comes with a relatively decent camera with features like Optical Image Stabilization, it’s still far from perfect. And some developers over at the XDA Forums have decided to change that by cooking a new camera tweak which brings tons of changes to the default camera application. This mod requires the LG G2 to be running on Android 4.4.2 with root access, so keep that in mind before proceeding.
