there's an xposed module named "youtube adaway" that is supposed to get rid of adverts. i have not installed it though, but you can try.

It can't detect WiFi networks if it's off.

Just curious, but if your Wi-Fi is set to always scan, as it is out of the box, maybe it would detect your network when it came in range?

Totally spit balling here. I don't use xposed and turn off always scanning myself.

1. that turns off wifi when not in range? And turns it back on when it is in range?

2. to block youtube ads?

3. switches from data plan internet when not at home? and turns off data plan when at home?

4. multi-tasking feature? like on the note 3 (split screen)

5. multi-tasking feature such as mini video player? (like in the youtube app, but have it running at all times)/play a recorded video and facebook at the same time. Also can it set as a gesture, to turn a video into a mini video player?

Just a FYI, I had these features on my jailbroken iPhone 4. I really want them on my android device too. If someone has discovered these, please do tell. Thank you in advanced.

Yes, I have that too but when it is enable. It doesn't always block the youtube ad, I rebooted the device too.
Thank you.

Most of your needs are covered by tasker. Ie you can set your phone to turn off data and turn on wifi when the modem detects the antenna cells that work in your house...ez peasy

It's an app from play store

No problems when activating Xposed Modules on my 1+1, with PA 4.45 !
X MoreTimeText is my favorite, instead of GravityBox (if you don't want all the others settings !)
