Do you remember Lucid Launcher? We featured this indie launcher a few weeks ago right here on the XDA Portal. XDA Senior Member powerpoint45 made a video series detailing its creation. And then on Valentine’s Day, the developer decided to update the application and add some love in the form of a few new features. The application also changed its status from alpha to beta, so it should be considerably more stable.

unnamedUnlike the previous batch of updates for Google’s apps, there are no directly user-facing changes that we have observed thus far.

However, the update brings a couple of crash fixes that could potentially make your browser experience a tad better, as well as a more mysterious fix:

You may remember that just recently the HTC Droid DNA gained the ability to dual multiple ROMs thanks to an unofficial MultiROM port. So for the folks who’ve been wondering how this may be of benefit, there’s now a Sense 5.5-laced build of Android 4.4.2 that’s been ported over from the HTC One to the Droid DNA that may serve as a fine starting point.

Now it’s time to continue this journey and further ‘Holo-ify’ your device.

Not too long ago, XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s Xposed Framework (thread) was updated to add support for several new platforms. Among those to benefit were MIUI users.

Naturally, however, not every available module works perfectly on dramatically different ROMs such as ones based on MIUI.
