Many of you already know that I have them all of my projects listed with their respective xda threads and download links on my website, but not all of them had an xda thread. So rather than cluttering xda with a new thread for each individual mod I make, I decided to put the smaller ones here

Binaries
  • Bash For Android Build Script
    This is the build script I made to cross compile bash for android. Feel free to tweak it and modify it however you like (if you make it better though, opening an issue and/or pull request with improvements on git would be awesome
  • Coreutils For Android (Main focus is Advanced Cp/Mv) Build Script
    Took me too long to figure this one out but this will compile coreutils 8.30 for android. I have it setup for cp and mv because I apply the advanced patches (or so it's called) which gives them a progess bar option (using the '-g' flag). cp and mv work fine but can't testify for the rest of coreutils, you may need to tweak some stuff
  • Keycheck
    Finally tracked down the source code for this. This will compile the keycheck binary so you can use vol key selections and what not. Uses a modified build script by @osms0sis. Instructions on the repo
  • Zip for Android
    This builds the zip binary, prepared for android by cloudchou @github in addition to a build script by @osm0sis that I modified for this. Just clone the repo, cd to jni, chmod the build script, and run it
  • Zipalign For Android
    This builds the zipalign binary, prepared for android by @osm0sis (with some slight modifications to the build script by me). Just clone the repo, chmod the build script, and run it

Mods
  • Bash For Android
    The title speaks for itself. This zip contains the latest stable bash binaries cross compiled for android
  • Codec Power Gating Disabler
    Another straightforward one. Disables codec power gating. It's needed for some audio mods like @chdloc's Biquads
  • Coreutils For Android (With Adv Cp/Mv)
    Unity mod for coreutils along with advanced cp/mv (progress bar functionality added - use -g flag)
  • Kernel Sepolicy Patcher
    Unlike most sepolicy mods out there, this one changes sepolicy at the kernel level - meaning no boot script crap so it'll work regardless of other mods/root solutions (or lack there of). You can choose between enforcing or permissive while flashing it - you can use this to switch at will to test stuff out or whatever
  • Notification_Helper Remover
    This comments out notification_helper from your audio_effect files. This prevents audio from cutting out/eq from stopping processing sound and may be needed for some system-wide eq apps like V4A or JDSP.
  • USB Policy Patcher
    This patches usb audio policy files so that you're usb devices will work with apps like V4A.

More will be added when I come out with them. For a complete list of all of the stuff I work on, check out my website linked at the top of this post

Earlier this week I got Android Auto in my car. I never considered that Viper4Android wouldn't work with it. I was hoping the USB Policy Patcher would fix that but it didn't. It looks like this is a problem for most, if not all people.

Has anyone found a way to use V4A while connected to Android Auto through a USB cable? If so, please explain what you had to do. Thanks.

The compiled zip is for lollipop+. If you want it for older, go to the bash build script link in the OP and compile arm binary for Api 19 (or older)

Thanks a lot for your time..
and Happy New Year...
but I just place in xbin without any other files?
i.e., /system/etc/bash/bashrc
/system/etc/bash.bash_logout
/system/etc/bash.bashrc
are not needed?
