New Xposed Mod: BlinkFeed Back to Top

This small mod enables the back button to scroll to top in BlinkFeed just like the home button would if BlinkFeed was your home screen.
=> This lets you choose a primary home screen other than BlinkFeed with still being able to scroll to top with a single tap (at the bottom of the screen, tapping the statusbar always works).
Note: HTC enabled this from stock with Android 4.2.2

As with any other mod, you must accept using it at your own risk.

If you want to try it, follow these steps:
  1. If not done yet or included in your custom ROM, install the Xposed framework as described in this thread (requires root)
  2. Install the attached APK and activate the module in the Xposed installer (this is also described in the framework thread)
  3. Reboot
ChangeLog

Code:
1.0
- Initial release
Hope you enjoy and let me know. Great thanks go to rovo89 for this fabulous framework.

Just an FYI, you can tap on the notification bar in stock sense 5 to bring you back to the top of Blinkfeed.

Did you install Xposed for the first time for this mod? The TV app is working fine here, so it would be nice to get some logcat output to be able to clarify

Indeed, you can single tap on the notification bar to back to the lastest.

For any apps HTC made are supported with this function (eg sms)

You are my hero! Scrolling to the top was what had me on the fence between loving and hating blink feed.

Indeed, that works out-of-the-box. I changed the OP to let people know this eventually in advance of rooting. Personally, I still would like to see HTC enabling the functionless back-button for this like they did with home. Unless this happens, I will keep on maintaining this mod so people can choose.

OP, would you consider developing a module that allows the back button to exit the app drawer?
