Xposed Installer v3.1 + Framework v86
Xposed Installer v3.1 + Framework v86
Requirements: Android 5.0+ | 5.1+ | 6.0+ | ROOT
Overview: Xposed for Lollipop/Marshmallow is finally here!
XposedInstaller_3.1.apk from this thread: Must be installed to manage installed modules, the framework won’t work without it.
Framework xposed*.zip Must be flashed with a custom recovery (e.g. TWRP) to install the framework.
SDK21 is Android 5.0 (Lollipop), SDK22 is Android 5.1 (also Lollipop) and SDK23 is Android 6.0 (Marshmallow).
I only support the latest Xposed version!
xposed-uninstaller*.zip Can be flashed with a custom recovery (e.g. TWRP) to uninstall the framework.
The small .asc files are GPG signatures of the .zip files. You can verify them against this key (fingerprint: 0DC8 2B3E B1C4 6D48 33B4 C434 E82F 0871 7235 F333). That’s actually the master key, the files are signed with subkey 852109AA.
– Bootloops on Samsung stock ROMs. That’s due to Samsung’s changes to ART. There are unofficial builds that work around this by deodexing and adjusting the ROM.
– Sony seems to have shipped some ROMs with corrupted services.odex (the embedded .dex is invalid). Those ROMs will bootloop with a “Fatal signal 6” or “No pending exception expected: java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException” error, which I unfortunately cannot fix (see https://github.com/rovo89/Xposed/issues/64)
– Dell ships (at least) their Venue 8 7840 with a non-standard version of ART that is somewhere between 5.1 and 6.0 which obviously isn’t supported by Xposed (see https://github.com/rovo89/Xposed/issues/77)
I have uploaded a new official installer (version 3.1) in the first post.
This version is based on @DVDandroid’s fork. Special thanks to him and the other contributors for their work!
Download the correct framework ZIP for your architecture/Android version
Install/uninstall Xposed directly from the app, no custom recovery required (but obviously you must still make sure that you can reflash your ROM in case something goes wrong!)
Many changes under the hood for better stability, compatiblity and code quality
Note that this version is not on repo.xposed.info for the same reason 3.0 wasn’t there: It would show an update notification to all users, including those who are still on ICS/JB/KK, for which I don’t have framework ZIPs (yet).
Unfortunately, working on the installer required much more effort and time than I had expected. Therefore, no official systemless for now. Instead, I’ll target Nougat next.
More compatiblity with ROMs that use a Resources subclass for e.g. theming, like most Huawei stock ROMs (*)
Incorrectly compiled modules are now rejected, the warning which started to appear with v84 is now an error
A bit of general cleanup and minor fixes
(*) In the Xposed logs, it would usually say “XyzResources doesn’t extend XResources” in such cases.
If you had to select “Disable resource hooks” in Xposed Installer in the past, it’s now worth to try again without this workaround.
On Huawei devices, Xposed should now work with and without their theming engine enabled.
Next step (planned for the next version): Official systemless Xposed for Marshmallow. I have already started working on that, but I don’t have much time and making something robust takes a while.
Note that the systemless installation will require SuperSU 2.76 or higher. That might be considered a disadvantage compared to the unofficial versions, however I think that it’s the better way. @Chainfire put a lot of effort into developing and testing a solution that works reliably on virtually every device. Whenever new devices and Android versions pop up, he’s fast at making SuperSU compatible. I think it totally makes sense to build upon those achievements instead of maintaining a fork of them or even reinventing the wheel, which could in the worst case even cause conflicts. I’ll rather spend that time focusing on Xposed development itself, not on dealing with all kinds of different bootloaders etc.
