Xposed Module GravityBox Updated With Support For Android Oreo

rovo89 released the beta version of Xposed framework for Oreo earlier this month. To make their Xposed modules compatible with the new release of the framework, developers have been working hard on updating their modules. Developer C3C076 has now updated his popular Xposed module GravityBox with support for Oreo. 

GravityBox will only work on ROMs based closely on AOSP. Heavily modified Android skins of GraceUX, MIUI, HTC Sense won't be compatible with GB. C3C076 has recommended users not to use GB with heavily customized ROMs (like Dirty Unicorns, AOSiP etc). 

The list of features in GravityBox is as follows:

--- Lockscreen tweaks
--- QuickSettings tile management with additional tiles
--- Statusbar tweaks
--- Navigation bar tweaks
--- Pie controls
--- Power tweaks
--- Display tweaks
--- Phone tweaks
--- Media tweaks
--- Hardware/navigation key actions
--- GravityBox Actions - interface for 3rd party apps
--- Notification control (per-app notification LED/sounds/vibrations)
--- Fingerprint launcher
... and many more

Since this is the first release of GravityBox for Oreo, there are certain features which may not work. I have summarized the same below:

Known Issues

  • Navigation bar tweaks may not work on the Google Pixel devices
  • Expanded Desktop may not work on  Android 8.1 (it was found to be working on Oreo 8.0 though)

Changelog & Points Worth Noting

  • The data activity indicators for mobile data are now shown beside the cellular icon instead on top of the icon (the data indicators for WiFi are still shown on top of the icon) 
  • GravityBox will work with SELinux set to as Enforcing
  • Custom wallpaper and color options are currently not supported for Oreo 8.1
  • Reordering of tiles in the QuickSettings panel is no longer supported. GravityBox now only shows options for enabling/disabling GB specific tiles and setting their protected mode (if protected mode is enabled, the user won't be able to use the tile on a secure lockscreen) For reordering QS tiles, you can use the stock tile management

The free version of GravityBox will give you access to almost all the features. To get access to features of notification control, and backing up and restoring GB settings, you will have to buy the premium version for $3.29 (Rs 210). You can download the first beta release of GravityBox for Oreo from the links in the source.
