Xtended Settings brings previously flash-only mods to app

Xtended SettingsXtended Settings is an app that brings several previously flash-only mods for the HTC One M8 (and potentially other HTC Sense-based ROMs) into one app. Xtended runs in conjunction with the Xposed framework, which at the moment means you’ll need to be running a ROM using the Dalvik runtime instead of ART as the newer runtime is not yet supported by Xposed.

The cool thing about Xtended Settings is that, unlike a flashable mod or an entire ROM, these can be done from the Xtended Settings app and in most cases do not require you to reboot the phone.

Xtended Settings works best on stock ROMs, as thats what the framework mods for each of the settings was designed for, so AOSP and highly customized Sense ROMs may have issues with these Xposed changes functioning.

The list of mods available is a very long one, which I’ve included below, so grab some popcorn and read on:
