Elixir 2.5 is available

What is new

  • Reboot toggle: choice list with OK button and a new Shutdown option
  • Statusbar icon can display internal storage usage
  • Device information: the telephony row can display information about WiMAX network if available
  • Running processes/services: processes can be ordered by network traffic or current network traffic
  • Displays information available in Android 3.0, 3.1, 3.2

New reboot dialog

The new dialog contains a choice list where you can select the reboot mode and you have to click on the OK button to do reboot.

 

The reboot toggle now works on devices which don't have a built-in reboot system command.

Order processes by network traffic

If you order processes by network traffic then total, received and transmitted traffic will be displayed for every processes.

 

The order by current network traffic option displays and uses the total traffic since this screen appears so this feature
is good for determining which processes uses network right now.
