Xposed Framework for Lollipop: Installation Guide

It was like a valentine day gift for some who got Xposed working on their phones running on Lollipop. The developer has been working hard to provide the most popular android framework to the Lollipop users and TaDa! Here’s it.

If you were missing your favorite Xposed module only because you’re running on a Lollipop based phone can install the alpha build of the Xposed framework, which was released a couple of days ago. As mentioned, the build is currently on alpha stage and may possible cause bootloops once you flash it.

Certain Samsung users running on stock ROMs have got boot loops and it’s not suggested to try if you’re on stock ROM unless the developer provides a fix or new build.

However, I personally tried it on my Moto G running on Lollipop and working without any flaws. The installation isn’t so direct and you need a custom recovery like CWM or TWRP to run Xposed in your phone. Let’s see how you can install Xposed Framework on your phone running in Lollipop android version.

Pre-requisites

#. You need full root access with SuperSU or SuperUser installed.
#. You must have a custom recovery to flash the additional files.
#. Make a Nandroid backup before proceeding to next step as it’s highly risky.

How to Install Xposed Framework on Lollipop

3. Now choose the zip file which you have downloaded and flash it.

4. After flashing the file, wipe Cache and Dalvik. Then reboot system.
