HTC Car Mode Xposed! [Lollipop Compatible]

Important Announcement!
HTC recently released the Car App as an update in the Google Play Store, and it currently isn't compatible with any version of this mod!
An update will be released to match the new version as soon as I have time to fix all the kinks the new version seemed to introduce (there are a few).
Please refrain from updating the app on the Play Store in the meantime if you want to keep the mod functional.

===

Additional settings and hacks for the KitKat HTC Sense 6.0/7.0 Car App, such as:

  • Bring back multi-tasking! ('Recent Apps', Status bar pulldown, and more!)
  • Release the 'Home' button to let it go back to the default launcher
  • Replace the 3-Finger tap gesture with Google Handsfree, Google Now or any custom app!
  • Turn Wi-Fi and GPS on or off at startup and shutdown
  • Bypass the exit confirmation dialog
  • Automatically close all apps opened from the Car App
  • And more!

Developed on the HTC One M8, but should also work on the M7 & M9.

Android 5.0 Lollipop and Sense 7 support added!

Changes: 
  • Fixed "Multitasking"! Yes, the "Recent Apps" button now works and doesn't break anything! Thanks to the brilliant RichmondoUK for pointing me in the right direction.
  • Removed GPS mods - it wasn't working as well as I had hoped due to android privacy overrides.

Changes: 
  • Added 'Exit mods':
    • Change GPS and Wi-Fi states on exit
    • Close apps opened from the Car App (either using a regular shut-down which doesn't always work or the more powerful 'root' method).
    • Moved the "Exit without confirmation" option under this category
  • Some code touch-ups
  • Still no fully-working multi-tasking mod, sorry... that's one tough nut!

Changes: 

A temporary work-around for a serious bug discovered in the previous version.
You can enable "Multitasking" and lose in-app dialer functionality, or leave it off and just turn on the Statusbar pulldown tweak (the multitasking button will still appear, just won't work).
