Xposed Framework beautify your phone without modifiying any apk

xposed framework change your android look easily

What's excatly Xposed Framework ?
It's App that modify your Android User Interface like statusbar tweaks, display tweaks, navigation bar tweaks, phone tweaks, media tweaks, power tweaks, hardware keys tweaks, advanced power menu(I mean reboot to recovery, shutdown, reboot) changing icons, changing colors of statusbar, transparent notification bar, turning capacitive buttons for notifications and many many more awesome modifications & tweaks.

Let's describe in this way:
Xposed Framework app borrows with Xposed Modules.
Framework is heart of operation but Modules is the other major part of the operation.Also Xposed Framework can not operate without Modules and vice versa.
Each Module have different features that developed by different person.

Disclaimer: We(alcatelstar.blogspot.com) or developer of this APP are not responsible for any damage on your phone after installation this APP.
I recommend for some reason, please make a full Nandroid backup of your whole system.I think no high risk of hard bricking only soft bricking like bootloop.

How to install Xposed Framework & download Modules:

- first your phone must be Rooted [for rooting check - here and here]
- you need to download Xposed Framework from developer site - here
- Modules you can directly download from Xposed Framework or manual download as first download on PC or on Phone then install like normal app

1. So when you have already on your phone latest Xposed Framework.
2. Install apk file like normal app
3. Then you need to activate/install Xposed Framework:

xposed framework installation instructions

install xposed framework and modules

how to install xposed framework on android

4.As you can see on screen shot you need to reboot your phone to working Xposed Framework.

5. After rebooting launch Xposed Framework and go to Modules and you can install any Modules but not all are compatible and working.

6. I tried all Modules but for my Alcatel STAR 6010x only works GravityBox, Xblast Tools and some smalls like Advanced power menu.
But GravityBox have a set of amazing features that will work on most Android phones your phone.
7. Here's the GravityBox Module download from button & install.

xblast tools module xposed framework

8. After installation of Module you need and this to activate you will see notification with warning for activation.

9. Now you have installed Xposed Framework & amazing Module GravityBox.Experiment with features inside and that's it like a playing game no any modification on apk:)
note: don't forget to reboot phone after playing with Module to take effect.
note: If you don't like this app you can easily uninstall as you go to Xposed Framework app and go to first option Framework then "Clean up".

    How to increase volume of headset or speaker Alcatel STAR, Alcatel IDOL, Alcatel SPOP

    engineer mode volume increase alcatel idol, star, xpop, spop, tpop, mpop, snap, idol ultra, idol x, scribe easy, scribe x

    I want to share my knowledge about how you can increase volume of headset, speaker, loudspeaker etc. after dial the some specific numbers(code) on dialer which enter into "Engineer Mode".
    Actually this trick is very easy to do, every even inexperienced can do it without any problems.
    This trick is compatible with most Android based Alcatel One Touch models like Alcatel IDOL, Alcatel STAR, Alcatel SPOP, Alcatel IDOL Ultra and others.

    So you need to dial these numbers to entering into Enginner Mode*#*#3646633#*#*

    We [ALCATELSTAR.BLOGSPOT.COM] not resposible for any damage of your Androd(like bricking, corrupted/broken speakers headphnes) after using this tutorial.


    1. Dial on dialpad *#*#3646633#*#*.
    2. Slide your finger left twice and enter into option Audio there are several options:
      - Normal mode(here's adjusts the music volume from the speaker)
      - Headset mode(here's for headset volume for Music, FmRadio etc.)
      - Loudspeaker mode(FmRadio, Incoming call volume, Loudspeaker on call etc.)
      - Speech Enhancement(not needed for normal user)
      - Debug Info(not needed for normal user)
      - Speech Logger(not needed normal user)
      - Audio Logger(not needed normal user)
    3. So for example, let's increase the volume for headphones of Music.
    4. Enter into "Headset mode" go to "Type" drop-down menu and select Media(for FmRadio is FMR).
    5. Then go to "Level" and select Level 6(it means that the latter level when the goal of increasing and decreasing the sound of Vol +/- buttons).
    6. Now on "Value is 0~255" almost the end where is located and increase on my Alcatel STAR value is "128" increase with 10, 20, 30 but important remember don't increase to maximum risk to damage the speaker of Phone.
    7. As you see in the end there is another option with value "Max Vol.0~160" on my phone's 140(on other Alcatel phones may be different values) if my value at first option is at maximum you can increase and this but don't touch only in a pinch.
    8. I hope to understand you my long guide of increasing volume on Alcatel phone's.
    note: on Normal mode-> again for music is "Media".
