In the picture above we see a few things. There is what appears to be a development board with a phone running Android 5.1 sitting on top. This image was sent out via Cyanogen's Google Plus page with the statement "Cooking up something in the lab EarlyStages TopSecret". So what could this be. There are quite a few ideas floating around none of them substantiated. Of course the phone appears to be a Yu Yureka which is running Android 5.1 Lollipop, so the most obvious explanation is that they are simply working on the Lollipop update for the device.

Could this be something more? Could this be a Cyanogen branded Phone or Tablet? Is Cyanogen looking to get in on the accessories business with something like a wireless charger, or could they be getting ready to try try their hand at AndroidTV or maybe even Android Wear with a smart watch? What are your thoughts sound off below.

Lollipop fully integrates notifications in the lockscreen, but to view them when they come in you actually have to turn on your screen. Some devices like the Moto X turn on the screen giving you a view of your notifications with out you having to turn on the screen. Glimpse Notifications brings this to other devices. Glimpse turns on your screen so that you can view notifications when they come in without having to touch your phone.

It does this in a smart way though. It won't just turn on your screen every single time a notification comes through. You can set up the apps you want to see notifications for in your whitelist. All other notifications will be ignored by glimpse. Pocket mode senses when your phone is in your pocket using your phones proximity sensors. If it senses your phone is in your pocket it won't automatically turn on the screen. You can even set a time period for ignoring notifications this way your phone's screen won't light up the room when you are trying to sleep. Head to the link below to grab this app.

A new update to the Google App allows you to connect your PC to your Android Phone so that you can send commands to it. Once your phone is linked you will be able to do things like send directions to your phone, find your phone, send a note to your phone, set an alarm, or set a reminder. To initiate the command do a search from google such as "find my phone" and it will find your phone an present you with a map showing the location of your phone. There is a specific search for each command. Enabling this is pretty simple. Just update your Google app from the play store, turn on Google Now on your Phone, turn on Web and app activity, sign into your browser, and then just send information to your phone. Head to the link below for full detailed instructions.

As screens become bigger and bigger finding the power button on your device can also be more and more cumbersome. Some phones require you to shimmy the device down in your hand so you can reach a poorly placed power button that sits on the top of the device. The HTC One M8 comes to mind. Of course the latest round of flagships seem to have improved on this. The One M9 now has the power button dead center on the right side which is better than it being on top, but it is still oddly placed as it can easily be mistaken for the volume button.

The Galaxy lineup has had excellent placement of the power button in the last several flagships that have been released. The Nexus 6 and Moto X even had a pretty good power button placement. If you are however rocking one of those phones that has a less than ideal power button placement you will want to make use of an all new Xposed module by developer "looklookson". His module turns off your screen when you swipe up from the home button! The only downside is that it replaces the Google Now function. This module has been tested on the HTC E8 on Sense 6.0, but should work on other devices and firmware.

If you love customizations on your phone chances are you have made use of the Xposed Framework. Xposed allows you to apply pretty much any customization you could get with a custom Rom to your phone without the need to actually flash a rom. For Xposed Framework to work you only need to be rooted. The developers have had Xposed working on Lollipop for a while now, and have been slowly knocking out all the bugs. The latest release of Xposed brings the official version up to 3.0, but it is still in the alpha stages.

Changes:
- Fixed issues with replacing drawables
- Fixed NoSuchMethodError in handleInitPackageResources
- Possibly fixed some errors on ROMs that start in permissive SELinux mode and switch to enforcing mode later

While there may still be a few bugs left in Xposed it is stable enough to use now on a daily basis. Head to the link below to grab the download.

The ViperOne M9 Rom for the HTC One M9 brings the most customization to the M9. ViperOne includes a long list of themes, tweaks, and mods. Even with all of these mods, and customization options the rom is based on Sense 7 and you get to keep all the features of Sense. All variants have been updated to the latest carrier firmware in 1.3.0. The Rom also frees up 3GB of storage for S-Off users. All system and data apps have been updated. Venom apps have been updated to use the Sense 7 themer. The ability to customize status bar and header clocks with custom formatting has been added. The ability to customize the carrier label has been added. You can now hide the clock from the lockscreen, and there is now a brightness slider in the notification header. There are also lots of bug fixes included in this update. Head to the link below for the full changelog and download.

If you unwittingly took the update to 4.4.4 on your 2014 Moto X you more than likely lost root. Since then you have been patiently waiting for a new root method. The wait is finally over! The developers of the Mofo app have just released an update. 5.0 will remain blocked for now until a proper image becomes available. To root your Moto X download and run the motoverify. This will verify that your device is compatible for mofo root. Once your device is verified you will be asked to pay the fee. Mofo will then run to root your device! Head to the link below to grab Motoverify and get started.
