Xposed Framework compatible with Android 6.0 devices soon

The Xposed Framework is one of the most variable tools around when it comes to tweakers and tinkerers of the community. If you install this framework on an Android device you will get an open door to hundreds if not thousands of possibilities of changing the way your mobile system reacts and your apps work.

 

Xposed Framework

 

 

You can choose from hundreds of modules you can install, and they allow you to do different things such as enabling Force Touch on Android, YouTube background playback or even making smartphones water resistant.

 

Each Android version requires changes and the devs behind Xposed Framework must rebuild the framework continuously to keep up with the OS changes, and this can take a lot of time to complete. There is no version of the framework that works on Marshmallow at the moment, but it is being worked on.

 

Some devs are working on some new builds of Xposed Framework for the newest flagships around, which means that an up and running viable build for most Android 6.0 devices will be out soon.

GravityBox – popular Xposed module – available for Android 5.0 Lollipop devices

GravityBox, a popular Xposed module, is now available for Android 5.0 Lollipop devices. Xposed Framework itself was released for Lollipop devices a little over a week ago, and now one of the best and most popular modules is updated as well. This GravityBox version is an alpha build however, which means it can have bugs and glitches. Nexus owners will be happy to know about it however.

Xposed Framework available for ARMv7 devices in alpha build

Xposed Framework is now available for Lollipop in the form of an alpha build. The vague promise of “soon” is now a reality, even if the installation process is a bit more complicated than usual.

 

Xposed lollipop

 

In order to install the new Xposed version on your Lollipop device you have to flash the ZIP file by using a custom recovery that installs the framework. After doing this, you will have to install the Xposed APK in order to manage your modules. Most of the modules compatible with KitKat will work on Lollipop as well, albeit with a few modifications here and there.

This version of Xposed is an alpha form, which means that bugs and boot loops can occur. You will have to take a risk if you want to update your Xposed Framework to the most recent version and you should back everything up before attempting to upgrade. This version is compatible with ARMv7 devices only at the moment, which means Intel devices and ARMv8 64-bit devices will not work. The 64-bit version will be released in the future.

Xposed Framework for Android 5.0 could be Lollipop compatible sooner than you think

Xposed Framework for Android 5.0 could come to devices faster than you think. If you like to mod your device, you must have found Xposed Framework pretty useful already. You don’t have to flash new ROMs but you can customize your system and tweak the UI to your liking with little risk. You waited around for a while, but Xposed may now be coming to Lollipop as well, and soon.

 

Nexus 5

 

Xposed’s developer posted an update on XDA saying that the mod works rather well already. Rovo89 also added a screenshot where Xposed is shown running on a Nexus 5 with Android 5.0.2.

When you install Xposed Framework for the first time you will need root access, but after that you will get the possibility to install modules really simple. This is a soft-mod that can be reversed and it is basically powerful enough for any light modding you may want to do. There is one problem though, and that is Xposed does not work with ART runtime, the new Lollipop default version.
