At least think, before replying.
He was referring to Android Lollipop 5.1.1, not Pandora 5.1.1.

Use the unofficial build of xposed for lollipop for 5.1. I can't offer much support for that build since it's buggy and stuff crashes. I don't want to get bug reports of stuff not working and it bring due to xposed malfunction. Use it at your own risk.

Sadly, you don't.
Xposed both for 5.0.x or the super alpha for 5.1.x (which is just the official alpha for 5.0.x re-wrapped for 5.1) are totally rough versions (with the 5.1.x version even rougher by virtue of having no changes to match the changes in the ART compiler that 5.1 brought), and both Pandora Patcher & iHeartRadio Patcher modules force their respective apps to crash under 5.1. Changing SELinux to permissive doesn't have any effect.

So we have to sit patiently for Xposed for Lollipop to mature, before Gamer765 can do anything to make his patchers work on the latest version on Android.

In the meanwhile, Gamer765 has built a pre-patched version of Pandora 6.0 which works as well minus the ability to select a download location, and theming, which is to be expected.

Thank you. I'll look for the prepatched version think that will do for now till official xposed is released for 5.1.1. Hopefully before 6.0 is out otherwise the waiting game starts again :?

This version of the Patcher is working flawlessly for me. No more error messages when I open Pandora. What was the problem with album art? I downloaded a new song, and the art came in just fine. I don't think I care if it is downloaded from another server or acquired from Pandora. I have unlimited data, and I'm streaming Pandora constantly... so, what's a few extra kb? Is that all? non-issue for me.

As I've done for the past few updates, I updated from the Play store to the latest version of Pandora. The past few versions would freeze/crash eventually, so I'm just waiting to see if that happens. That's a fault with the Pandora app, though, not the Patcher.
UPDATE: The Pandora app from the Play Store still froze/crashed twice on me. This always happens, and is fixed by sideloading the app instead. I'm starting to think that sideloading doesn't fix it... it's just cycling the app a few times, so I'm rebooting and trying the Play version again.


I do have one question...

What does this mean in the change notes:
Fixed broken conditional for automatic download

I didn't know there was an "automatic download" option. I presume that this has more to do with the existing "download on thumbs-up" and "sort into folders by channel" options.

Finally... the copyright year is still set to 2014 if you press the "i" in the patcher settings. Gotta keep that updated! :lol:

Good work as far as I can tell!

This version is working great for me! MP3 support is back working with no crashes at start. Just fantastic! As I always say, Thank You!

The issue with images was that Pandora stopped using bitmaps when showing artwork on the now playing screen and switched to views which contain artwork for all played tracks and extracting the corresponding artwork was going to be hard due to obfuscation. As a result, I resorted to taking the arturl which Pandora does provide with all the track metadata and build my own compact downloader. The downloader downloads to RAM and then immediately gets inserted into the track.
Sadly there isn't much I can do about the crashes/freezes because I can't reproduce it with both the patcher and the patched apk.
The automatic download I was referring to is the no prompt option where pressing the thumbs up button downloads the song without asking. The conditional was the check for whether the song was downloaded already to prevent renamed copies. For example a song titled Avicii - Silhouettes.mp3 would be Avicii - Silhouettes-1.mp3. So I forgot to change the download conditional from true to false for it to start the download.
