When we talk about customizing smartphones, it is very much possible that we hear of the Xposed framework. It has been there since the early days of Android OS. Basically, with Xposed, the user gets control over the system and other tailor-made apps. They can customize the apps as per their needs. The Xposed framework makes use of this module called the GravityBox.
If you want to perform a tweak on any aspect of your device, then GravityBox is the tool you should look for. With this module, a user can hide status bar icons, customize the lock screen appearance, add shortcuts for the hardware keys on the smartphone, etc. You can refer to GravityBox as a one-stop solution for customizing the Android device. The scope of customization spreads into devices running both the custom and stock ROMs.
The official Xposed Framework was last released for Android 8.1 Oreo. After that, an unofficial port of the Xposed was carried which goes by EdXposed. The first version of EdXposed was released for Android 9.0 Pie. The EdXposed is based on the official API of the original Xposed Framework. The latest iterations of the GravityBox module is based on EdXposed.
Now, GravityBox is also available for devices running the all-new Android 10. In this post, we have brought you the latest GravityBox for Android 10. It is a must to have a rooted device to try out the new GravityBox. Besides, you need to have the latest Magisk to flash Riru and EdXposed.
Though Android 10 stable iteration has been released, the same cannot be said about the latest GravityBox for Android 10. This means it is the first release of GravityBox based on the Android 10. So, expect bugs, glitches, and crashes with this Beta release of the GravityBox. Obviously, in the coming days, the devs will set everything right.
