Hi guys, I have been browsing this forum looking for updates on the development for this phone over the last few months and unfortunately it seems pretty stale to be fair. We have achieved root which is a good stepping stone but there have been no attempts at new roms or modifications of any sort so I would like to give you what I have achieved with my G2 Mini.

- Installing xposed framework and using G2 TweaksBox to modify everything to how I like it. As the stock rom is closely based on the original G2, all of the modifications you make will be the same however I cannot get rid of the SIM switching bar in the notification panel

After making these changes my experience of this phone has been greatly improved. I hope this information can help some of you who are desperately looking to modify the ROM to your needs.

*NOTE - You must have rooted your G2 Mini to install xposed framework*
@Vagelis1608 has pointed out that xposed does not work on ART, my bad.

@Garcia98 is working on a custom recovery that will work on locked bootloaders.

Also, I thought that if someone installs xposed on ART, it will get reverted to Dalvik.
Can you confirm if you are actually running ART with xposed active?

The next xposed update should support ART.

So is it safe to root the G2 Mini using Towelroot and is it full root or just half root (they say there ia half root but I don't know what it is). And then after will be the installing of Xposed framework on the phone, is that correct? And then after that ia installing the G2 Tweakbox? All these are safe to install?

Yes, all of them are safe.
So you can go ahead and install them
But, as always, you are responsible for what you do with your device.
