Download link is in the thread, do not use the "Download" section in XDA DEVDB, my network has some problems with it for now.

After nearly one year's silence, SwipeBack is now back alive, known as SwipeBack2.

SwipeBack2 is the continue of SwipeBack. It has still the basic feature, swipe-to-return gesture, inspired by the library SwipeBackLayout written by @ikew0ng(a.k.a. IssacWong, 碎星iKe, 碎iKe). It provides a smooth, nature-like and highly customizable swipe-to-return gesture. This module is initially a wrapper of SwipeBackLayout in Xposed, and was welcomed widely by Xposed users. Gradually it has gained much new features that is more than SwipeBackLayout.

If you have installed the old SwipeBack, please uninstall it first, and then you can install SwipeBack2

* Swipe-to-return gesture
* Per-activity settings which means you are able to customize settings on <strong>each page of each app</strong>
* Experimental hacks for Lollipop (may not work, use with caution, do not turn it on globally)
* More experimental features are coming in future releases.

Note that SwipeBack2 is now only a rewrite and a port to Lollipop (but it still works on ICS/JB/KK). It has many work to-do, as:
* Pure-gesture mode (disable scrolling effects, enables compatibility with apps that consist of Fragments but not Activities, and can work with Browsers)
* Fully-costomizable trigger area (at <strong>any</strong> position on the edge, to fix compatibility with apps that has a gesture like drawers already)
* Automatic bug report and crash log submitter
* More (<strong>advices are always welcome)

SwipeBack2 is free software released under the terms of GNU GPLv3. Source code available at

- Fix icons
- Add ability to show a settings shortcut to the current app activity in notif bar
This is a minor release. We will go to fix several bugs in the next few weeks

- Fix crashes in main app UI
- Fixes for apps with wallpaper

From Xposed Store:
From Google Play Store:


Q: Why renamed to SwipeBack2?
A: Because SwipeBack2 is completely rewritten, and is refactored to have a better stability and flexibility. And another reason is, that SwipeBack (us.shandian.swipeback) is blacklisted by Alipay because of the unsecure SwipeBack, so I just renamed it to SwipeBack2 (info.papdt.swipeback), hoping that it will not be blacklisted any more.

Q: Would you add feature X / fix bug X?
A: Feel free to send emails or open issues on GitHub page. I may not have time to reply to you all, but I will take a look at bug reports and feature requests and have the resonable ones implemented in new releases.

Q: SwipeBack is great! Do you accept donations?
A: Well, not now.

Not for me, works as it should. Everything fine. Just have to experiment a bit with the Lollipop Feature, few Apps don't like it as stated in the App.

Cannot get it working on a Nexus 5 with CM12, I don't know if I'm doing anything wrong but I don't think so. Just installed, enabled it on Xposed and restarted. It's not CAF, so it may be fault of the rom. What android and rom are you using?

Just disabled every other module and it's working now. I will try to find which one is causing the problem and report it because it may be useful to someone.

Im glad someone revived this amazing module ... please keep it updated ... i will keep giving feedback and any bugs if i find on this thread

Edit 1 Bugs-

1. While swiping back on Whatsapp it goes back perfectly from the Chat screen to the Chat list. But while Swiping back on other apps like Gallery or Instagram. It doesnt swipe back. It goes to Home Screen.

2.After Swiping back the Recent app page shows wrong thumbnails .. it shows the Home screen as thumbs instead of App last state. (Screenshot Attached)

3.Also after restart i got a has stopped ... i may have said the term wrong .. but it was something regarding Location.

4. SB2 force closes if Global settings option is pressed.

I have unistalled old Swipeback and Freshly Installed this.

I love this app and will continue to send feedback to make it best.

Kitkat - LG G2 D802 International Model - Stock Firmware.

Been waiting for this module to work, thx for it. Unfortunately there are some bugs, the Gmail animation is fine but the rest are broken with in the status bar, like in the video (nexus 4 stock 5.0.1 and Franco kernel) . Keep up the good work
