Xposed Framework for Samsung Lollipop Marshmallow

If you would have used Xposed in your Samsung devices, you might be familiar with random bootloops & force close after installing it. Samsung made a lot of changes to ART without providing the sources so official Xposed doesn’t provide any support for Samsung devices & clearly says, Xposed framework will cause bootloops in Samsung devices, you must try unofficial xposed builds meant for Samsung devices.

If you are new to Android rooting, you might have heard people saying the first they install after rooting their device is Xposed framework as it gives them freedom to customize system files without installing custom ROMs. In this guide, we’ll learn How to install Xposed framework in Samsung devices without bootloops & other errors. This Xposed supports all other Samsung devices (GS5, Note 4/5, GS6E, GS6E+…) running Touchwiz Android 5.1.1 and 6.0.

Now what exactly is Xposed framework? Xposed framework uses root access to directly access core Android resources and utilize them to run different modules on the device that bring new features to the OS. The potential here is virtually unlimited, and many developers have already started switching to it for delivering their mods. So, how do you get the framework on your device? For devices other then Samsung, you can follow this method: How to install Xposed framework & Installer. Now lets learn about installing Xposed in Samsung devices. We’ll install unofficial Xposed in Samsung devices. Now, this unofficial Xposed version does NOT break support for any other device supported by official Xposed, which means it still support all devices supported by the official one, this version adds Samsung and XZ compressed odexes support.

Disclaimer:  Please follow this guide at your own risk. Devs-Lab won’t be held responsible for any bricked devices. We have tested this method in some our devices & it works perfectly fine.


  1. You must have a Rooted Samsung Smartphone. (What is Rooting?).
  2. A Custom Recovery like TWRP/CWM.
  3. Stock (Odexed and Deodexed) 5.1/6.0 Roms
  4. (Optional) Backup all your data & Apps before flashing the Xposed framework file to avoid data in case anything goes wrong or your device doesn’t boot up.

How to install Xposed framework in Samsung devices

Step 1. After Android Kitkat, one cannot install Xposed directly i.e just an APK. You first need to flash the Xposed framework. Similarly, we first have to flash Xposed framework in our Lollipop/Marshmallow device.

Step 2. Download the given files at the end of the post & transfer it in your Internal memory/SDcard.

Step 3. Now Switch off your device. Press & hold the required key combinations. For devices having hardware keys, the key combination is mostly Volup+home+Power button to boot into Recovery mode.

Step 4. After booting into recovery mode, Goto Install zip from SDcard (in CWM) or Install (in TWRP) & locate the Xposed framework file that you transferred in your device.

Step 5. Select the zip & Install. Wait for the Installation to complete.

Step 6. Now, Wipe Dalvik & System cache. Reboot your device.

Step 7. You will now have to install the Xposed framework APK on your Android device. Using a file manager like ES File Explorer, navigate to the location where you had saved the APK and install it. If you get an error saying “Unknown installations blocked” similar to this:

Android Unknown Sources
Android Unknown Sources

Just Goto Settings App > Security > Enable Unknown sources. Now install the Xposed app.

Step 8. To check if everything is done perfectly, launch Xposed App & goto Framework. It would show app_process and Xposed Bridge with some no. below Active.

Download Xposed Framework for Samsung devices

I already installed the Xposed app just need the zip to work, etc. Would send you compensation for your help! Need to get a feature working on phone for a disabled child and I’m new to this, thanks!

    I tried the 64 files for it but may have been just for 6.0 since it soft bricked and had Samsung logo for at least 30 minutes, so I luckily uninstalled to get phone back working. Too afraid to try again with expensive phone that doesn’t belong to me! (my brother’s)

  19. I have a Tmobile Note 5 marshmallow 6.0.1 rooted. I tried installing this but it will just get stuck in the tmobile screen, I waited for 15 minutes and nothing. Use the uninstaller and works fine? any other way I can make it work??

  22. Hello,

    I’, having an issue at Step 3. When I’ve Switched off my phone; and tried to launch Recovery Mode; I’ve a message in red appearing: Cutsom binary blocked by FRP lock.
    Each time I try to boot this message appears.
    If i try to reach the recovery mode, I got the messsage: RECOVERY IS NOT SEANDROID ENFORCING; followed by: Cutsom binary blocked by FRP lock.

    Any idea how to fix it ?


  23. i got a samsung s6 edge+
    SM-G928F which version do i need
    i did the xposed-v85.1-sdk23-arm64-custom-build-by-wanam-20160530 but that gives me a bootloop
    Custom Binary blocked by FRP Lock


    • Hi, I have the same model phone as yours and when I rooted it, I had to enable enable oem unlock in developer options. However, when you turn this back off and reboot the phone, it gives this binary blocked by FRP lock.

      Solution I found for this was to reflash the stock rom using ODIN and re-root the device but keep the enable oem unlock on in the developer options…

  24. I just succesfully flashed my Galaxy S5 ( SM-G900F ) running Lollipop 6.0.1 via TWRP . no bootloops or anything. thank you Dev-Labs , i was having issues with the official xposed framework but this worked perfectly fine!

  25. I have a s5 plus g901f stock rom.
    It gets stuck in bootloop when installing this framework. the uninstaller works,.

    what can i do to get xposed framework to work .


    De Bouwer

  26. I have a 6.0.1 Samsung Note 4 N910T and I tried to install the recommended Marshmallow framework for the Note 4 and it still boot loops. I’m not sure if I’m doing something wrong I already have the uninstaller so I fixed the bootloop problem. But I just want to know if any of these frameworks will actually work for my phone

    • Because of too many changes made by Samsung over Android, its hard to get Xposed working in it. You can try this framework file: Download. Let me know if you face any problem.

  27. I was wondering if you could help me too. I am running 6.0.1 on my n910f note 4. It is rooted and I have twrp all working fine. However whenever I try flashing xposed framework it get locked up it doesn’t even go into boot loop. It stays on the galaxy note 4 screen before the Samsung boot logo. I always end up having to restore from twrp. I am using the newest arm version from sdk23. This is my first time flashing this framework but I’ve never run into problems like this with rooting or even flashing roms. Any help would be great.

  28. I’ve downloaded xposed and now i’m stuck.
    it doesn’t boot up, after i did install it in TWRP and than pressed reboot.
    It doesn’t let me go in recovery mode also, and it won’t let me see my files from my sm-g920f samsung galaxy s6.
    Could anyone please help me ?

    • That’s really weird! Which Xposed version you flashed? To get your device working again, boot into fastboot & boot using recovery (boot recovery recovery.img in ADB) then flash uninstaller zip.

  29. Ana how about a Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900T carrier T-Mobile, will this method work without to boot loop my phone?

  30. im still getting force close after installing the zip i have samsung s5 stock rom. it randomly works sometimes but its a hassle to deal with. ive followed all steps and dont know what to do. any help is appreciated thanks.

  31. hello i have recently updated to 6.0.1 on my s5 i have followed this method completely but phone will brick after installing the zip file. ive been troubleshooting myself sometimes it will work if i install the zip twice. but if i do anything such as uninstall an app or have multiple apps running is force closes the phone and is stuck again. i dont know what else to do without installing a custom rom. any help is appreciated thanks.

  32. …okay so this is probably the 10th time ive tried doing this. On sprint Note 4 N910P Stock rom 6.0.1 (just upgraded firmware). From what i read i thought it was 5.1.1 that was giving most people their problems since i had it installed before that version but i for the life of me cannot get it to work on 6.0.1. Any suggestions, this build didnt work, just stuck on boot screen.

  33. Finally I can make it runs on my i9300 (galaxy S3) running CM13
    Here is a little step (use at your own risk but mine just working fine)

    0. Make a backup !! (a MUST)
    1. Install the latest Xposed (xposed-v85.1-alt-sdk23-arm-custom-build-by-wanam-20160530.zip)
    2. Install the latest APK (XposedInstaller_3.0_alpha4.apk)
    3. Reboot

    Tested it with some modules and working just fine 🙂
    Thanks alot for wanam, b.eslabon (for pointing me out), XDA team and who ever you guys out there who has created this !! 😀


  34. Im so sorry, it was my mistake @Peter
    Indeed, my I9300 has the same problem (Sdk23 and Armeabiv7a not compatible)
    Now we just can wait and hope you guys can make it happens 😀

  35. @Peter
    I’m also using i9300 with CM13 and I just did the install and it running flawlessly
    Maybe you did something wrong when installed ? Choose the right zip, there are 2 Zips for L and M
    Hope it helps 😀

  36. Hi

    I have a custom rom on my galaxy s6, xtrestolite marshmallow. Should I be following this guide or the one not specifically for samsungs? I’m asking because it’s not the stock rom and this guide specifically states for stock Samsung Roms.
