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

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

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.

if you change from blinkfeed as Home to another page, the home button oesn't do it. but I guess most people don't realize yo ucan just tap the status bar, regardless of what page is your home page >_>

Since 4.2.2 the home button always brings you to the top. Same goes for the back button. And it also quits app drawer.
HTC is listening. lol.

    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

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

    This is an excellent idea. Back button in BlinkFeed works anyway from 4.2.2 on, so let's give this code new sense. But won't promise any EST, in upcoming week maybe
