The problem is fixed. We are just waiting on a little more feedback from our Alpha testers on the build.

Hopefully this thing comes out soon. My Nexus 5 just got the Lollipop update over the air.

Also worth note - even Android has now ditched the excessive use of strong, dated gradients. Hint, hint. :-)

LOL.  This again!?! 


Yeah, well, the problem still exists and makes my eyes sad every time I use the XIM app. Since OBsIV had originally defended the design choice with the fact that the Android settings app used a similar gradient, I want to call out that the Android settings app has also forsaken said gradient.

Please upgrade to the latest Beta under Release Candidates within Downloads (version 20141114). It fixes the Lollipop issue.

Confirmed, XIM4 Manager for Android version 20141114 does indeed work.

I went ahead and updated my XIM4 with the Beta 2014114 Firmware as well, no issues so far.

Good work guys.

Do I need to uninstall the current manager? In the topic for the updated one, it has "Please UNINSTALL prior versions of XIM4 Manager before installation.", but it's under the pc link. Does it apply to android as well? or can I just install over the top?

Also if I have to uninstall on android before installing the new one, do I lose my configs? or are they stored elsewhere?

Thanks :).

Please uninstall. No, you won't lose your Configs (they are stored on your XIM4). They only way to lose your Configs is if you do a Factory Restore (instead of Upgrade) of your firmware.
