In doing research on app permissions and cool "l33t hax0r" apps to put on a rooted phone, I stumbled across a category of app permission managers. They seem to be relevant to Android 1.x and 2.x, circa 2010.
The advent of Jelly Bean (Android 4.3) gave us a rudimentary app permission manager within Android, but not everyone got it, Google didn't mean to release it, and it was quickly removed from Android.
Is this category of apps no longer valid? Or are there just a new bunch of apps and I'm finding stale posts, articles, and information?
I found this article here on Android Stack Exchange, and the answers link to most of the apps that I have come across (modified Google Permission Managers notwithstanding).
The only modern/supported app of similar design is a module for XPosed called Xprivacy. However, XPosed is only for Samsung ROMs/devices. Is there something more generic?
I currently have some Samsung phones, and some of them are rooted, but not all the devices I am tinkering with are Samsung or rooted.
