Thanks for the awesome app! Could you please add an option to convert the ussd messages to notification or toast messages instead of blocking them completely?

This is exactly what I was looking for, and works on my phone - Thanks a lot!
I request you to release the source if possible, it would be greatly appreciated.

Do not Block USSD messages

Please make it open source, a lot of people will appreciate that.
I second that!
Also @veagles can you make that app convert the USSD messages into notifications/toast messages instead of just swallowing them?
I would just like to have a history of USSD messages, I don't necessarily want to block them, I just need to know what call costed how much in my prepaid phone.
Or just please make the app open source, I can republish the app with necessary changes...

Addon works on Lollipop. I'm using Z3C, stock rom, and xposed for lollipop alpha2.

There's a small issue though - after every reboot I need to start Ussd blocker and turn it OFF and ON again. Otherwise it doesn't block, even though it's ON (after a reboot).

I've attached the cat and xposed log for your infomation.

i've been running ussd blocker with xposed for lollipop, but since june 29 11pm eastern the messages are now popping up again but this time they prompt me to Save or Cancel. If i hit save it saved it into Hangouts as if it were a text. I use H20 wireless. anyone else experience this? maybe H20/At&t changed how they send balance updates?

Same thing happened to me... the automatic messages how show "Cancel or Save" and aren't captured by USSD Inbox". If I dial *777# (I'm on airvoice), that USSD messages are captured by USSD Inbox.

Supposedly the USSD Notification app can handle these prompts, but it didn't work for me when I tried it =(

EDIT: Just found out that these new message are actually Flash SMS messages (not USSD). With this new knowledge, I installed "SMS Filter" by Tsvetan Nachev. Saved one of the popup messages, and added that source number into SMS Filter's block list. No more popup! =D

Same issue here. However it's working when, after each restart, I goto USSD blocker and disable & then enable...then it works.
Using Z3C stock 5.1.1 w/ xposed v70 by romracer.
