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.

Prerequisites:

  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.

Installing Xposed Framework in Android M through TWRP

Installing Xposed Framework in Android M through TWRP

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

For Android Lollipop

  1. ARM: Download (devices that are running arm32 operating system like Galaxy S5, Note4 & others)
  2. ARM64: Download (devices that are running arm64 operating system like Galaxy S7/S6, Note5 and all their variants.)

For Android Marshmallow

  1. ARM: Download (devices that are running arm32 operating system like Galaxy S5, Note4 & others)
  2. ARM64: Download (devices that are running arm64 operating system like Galaxy S7/S6, Note5 and all their variants.)

Don’t know what to choose? Don’t worry, it won’t break your device if you install a wrong one. If you install a wrong one, the installer will simply tell you that you should go with the other version.

Xposed Installer APK

Xposed installer app acts as a middle man between Xposed framework & xposed modules which manages all the system functions: Download

Xposed Framework uninstaller

If in case things didn’t go as mentioned & your device ends up in boot loop, you might require this zip file that will bring back your device status to previous state: Download

Checkout: Top 10 Xposed modules for Android L & M

Credits: wanam

If in case anything goes wrong & your device fails to boot up, always transfer Xposed framework uninstaller zip along with Xposed framework zip in your Internal storage. If anything goes wrong, Boot into recovery & flash the uninstaller. Everything will be back to normal. If you get any lag, broken feature or any App force closing, post your Xposed logs here

  • Josh

    Samsung Galaxy S7 Canadian Model (SM-G930W8) with Marshmellow 6.0.1, 64 bit. Has anyone got Xposed installed and framework to work for it??? If so, where could I find the files needed? 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)

  • Philip Medley

    WORKED!!!

    901F Note 4; Had boot lock with suggest one however this one https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24572330218881467 worked. 5mins on Samsung ‘breathe’ screen and BOOM! This was by far the easiest tutorial to follow. you MUSt have a recovery tool though and make sure the Xposed unistaller is in is unzipped form.

    thank!

    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 ?

    Thanks

    Custom Binary blocked by FRP Lock

    • Geoffrey

      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…

  • Julio

    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!

  • Carlos

    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

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      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.

  • Mark

    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.

    • Devs-Lab Staff

    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 ?

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      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.

      If its Touchwiz ROM, you need to follow this method.
