F*ck me... This stupid mobile app... I just spent 20 minutes reviewing a module and tried to post it and it said "You don't have access to this page". I lost about 15 minutes of time writing it.
And I'm using the premium app too.

Ok... Adding an abbreviated module review...
I am running stock rooted Rom with S-off. I have tried many of the Xposed modules and have not been all that impressed.
I am more of an "aesthetic mod" person. I like changing the colors of the statusbar icons, the notification colors, the quicksettings colors and layouts, etc.
I was running Sense 6 toolbox for awhile (which worked erratically depending on which software update you had installed), but that did very little. I think I managed to change my battery icon to add the % to it... And I think I changed the colors of the icons (but all of them to the same color, not individually).
I ended up uninstalling Xposed completely. After a week, I couldn't stand it (I just really get bored with white statusbar icons and the limited theme options that come with native Sense).
I found however an amazing module. I have been using custom ROMS for years, and this module allows you to mod virtually everything you could want.
You need to have root though. This module was started in XDA a few months ago, but it has since moved to the Play Store.
It's free, but it has paid "tiers" of added mod abilities or themes (I don't know exactly as I just use the free version.....). And one really sucky downside is that every time you switch to a different menu, you get a toast prompting you to donate. It's annoying as hell for the first 20 minutes, but you get used to it.
And anyway, this mod is incredible if you like to change things like statusbar icons or colors, notifications (colors and background), quicksettings colors...And a lot if other stuff I haven't even gotten into...(menu/scroll animations, etc).
It's called "Xtended Settings" and it is the most comprehensive Xposed module for Sense. Other than the annoying donation pop-ups it would be perfect. And I am just using the free version... I didn't even know what paying for the silver, gold, or platinum levels would allow you (theming packs or who knows?).
Anyway, if you are into changing colors, layouts, backgrounds, of your stock Sense ROM, I'd check this out. I honestly thought if have to wait until I changed to a custom ROM before betting able to do any of this.
However, notwithstanding everything above, all of this may be of no consequence in a few weeks as we get Android L, since Xposed only works with Dalvik and not ART....But I guess we'll have to wait and see....
