    Oh yeah, did I miss any gems exclusively in F-Droid? I had Autostarts, but Clean Master pretty much replaced it although neither successfully manages startup/background in Lollipop...

    *Found oandbackup but just noticed Lucky Patcher can backup and block ads via HOSTS. No need for AdAway or F-Droid then.

    I use the Xposed framework to apply a few tweaks to my Android phone.
