On the OmniROM website, I saw that the OmniSwitch feature would only work for Android 4.4.x.

Having a long history of backporting apps and other features, I decided to have a go at this too. So here it is, OmniSnitch, a completely backported version of OmniSwitch. This has been backported to ICS and with a few changes will work on HoneyComb too. But having 0.1% of the android market, I'm not going to be supporting it.


FEATURES
(Same as OmniSwitch)
  • Enable/Disable
  • Start on boot
  • Animate overlay
  • Icon size
  • Opacity
  • Show/Hide memory usage
  • Show/Hide app name
  • Action buttons
  • Enable/Disable drag handle
  • Position of drag handle
  • Color of drag handle
  • Opacity of drag handle
  • Auto hide
  • Set favourites
  • Set favourites position


Downloads at end of third post.

Known Bugs

Apps cannot be killed by swiping or by using the action buttons. This has to do with permissions. I have tried installing it as system app but still it seems to have issues. If anyone can make it work, do post here. However, this issue should not be there if it is compiled and installed along with a ROM. So its not really a bug but a limitation of android(for now).


CHANGELOG

  • V1.0
    • Initial Release

Betas will have BETA tag at the end of the name.

ICS, JB or KK will be at the end if its only meant for that version.

On LG g2 stock 4.2.2 Rom closing app let omni snitch force close. Closing one app or all it is the same. But thanks for the app :)

Yes, killing apps don't work. Everything else works. That's a limitation for now. I'll try to find a reflection method to make it work.

I've tried reflection methods for ActivityManager.removeTask(...)
No luck. What happened was that I gave the app permissions (REMOVE_TASK) but it still said that the permission wasn't granted. Only apps signed with the ROM's signature (apparently) can use this removeTask method.

Do you have a different approach to reflection methods?
