Jim Silver,

Thanks for your reply! Just to confirm, you able to disable/enable location services without installing xposed just root and e robot, and no toast notification?

Also, how would you rate e robot in comparison with Tasker? Is it safe to install?

Lastly, I'm not sure why Tasker can't do this either I'm baffled.

E robot is good, very good dev - author of widgetsoid which I have been using for years

Sorry, I may have been a bit confusing, what I have set e robot to do is to change the modes of location from battery saving to high accuracy and then back again to battery saving. This is working well for me with my set up.
