Xposed for Lollipop is now available for root users [DOWNLOAD]



A few days ago we filled you in on the progress of the popular Android mod “Xposed” being developed for Android 5.0 Lollipop. All of those holding off on updating to Lollipop because of Xposed incompatibility, today is the day: Xposed for Lollipop is now officially available for download.

For those out of the loop, Xposed is a tool for root users that offers up countless ways of customizing an Android device’s software by use of “modules.” These modules provide users with software features normally only found in custom ROMs. Since Lollipop made the move away from Dalvik to ART, it broke compatibility Xposed and the developer was forced to rework everything to play nice with the new runtime in Android 5.0.

Before you get too excited, the developer notes that this is only an alpha version of Xposed and currently only works on ARMV7 devices running Lollipop. Should you fulfill those requirements, you can download the app from the XDA thread right here. Godspeed.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

      2. sorry, I was working. I am here now.

      3. It’s 5 o’clock on the east coast. Everyone is heading home to start their weekend.

      4. Driving in traffic.

  1. Xposed install is like step 5 in my root process. After get root, install Recovery, make nandroid, install AdAway, install Xposed.

    1. you wrote it already… :)

      1. It was removed as I used a bad, bad, bad word.

        1. Yeah that can be annoying. The Sailor words wanna come out often with me. :(

  2. HOORAY!!!

  3. So far/so good on T-Mo NOTE 4 & CM12………………..

    1. Edit:Framework not installing,will keep an eye on the thread for further development.

  4. I haven’t the need for Xposed any more. ROM developers have started including what I used Xposed for in their ROM’s.

    The only thing I’d use it for now is to change the navbar and Notification bar based on the app I use.

    1. I mostly used Xposed because I no longer use roms. I can see how being on a rom would eliminate the need for it though.

    2. You’re doing it backwards…

  5. Shut up.

  6. I’m shaking with anticipation to get Xposed on my N6. I’ve seriously missed it since relegating my N5 with Xposed to my nightstand as a clock.

  7. Good to hear. Personally, I’m not going to even look at swapping over until there is a lot of positive confirmation on XDA (much more than just the bleeding edgers that report “this is awesome!” Even when a side effect is something like losing the ability to make calls…)

  8. “for root users” #obvious

  9. I’d rather wait for the stable version. Anyway, we have lived without xposed before, correct?
