Android Xposed Framework and Installer for 5.0, 5.1, 6.0, 6.0.1
Android Xposed Framework and Installer

Xposed is one of the most beloved tools an Android enthusiast can have, as it allows for all sorts of modifications to extend the functionality of our favorite devices. If you don’t like getting your hands dirty by compiling & decompiling different System files, then Xposed Installer is the perfect App for you. You can perform all the changes to your choice in just few clicks. Xposed is an essential app required to run various different Xposed Modules to add extra functionality to your Android device such as Changing Statusbar Icons like Xperia,iOS, Greenify or any other.

Few users didn’t update their device to Android Marshmallow as Xposed Framework was not available for Android M after the launch of Android Marshmallow. Its been a while now, since Xposed Installer is available for Android M. Without wasting much time, lets get started. This guide works with Android Lollipop too. After Android Kitkat, one cannot install Xposed directly in their device. Due to too many restrictions & updated from Android Lollipop, Xposed was installed in parts. First we need to flash the Framework which hooks into the system & then the installer that uses the Framework to change system files.

For Samsung devices: Xposed for Samsung Lollipop & Marshmallow.

Prerequisites:

  1. You must have a Rooted Smartphone: How to root any Android device in one click.
  2. A Custom Recovery like TWRP/CWM: CWM for Mediatek | Nexus | Motorola.
  3. (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.

Step 4. Select the zip & Install. Wait for the Installation to complete. Now, Wipe Dalvik & System cache. Reboot your device.

Step 5. You will now have to install the Xposed framework APK on your Android device. Using a file manager, navigate to the location where you had saved the APK and install it. If you get an error saying “Unknown installations blocked” similar to below image, Just Goto Settings App > Security > Enable Unknown sources.

FAQ’s

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. Refer our other guide about installing Xposed in Samsung devices.

Error in some Sony devices: 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.

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

Thanks to XDA’s rovo89 for his awesome work in Xposed Installer for Android devices. If you found any issues while installing the zip file. You can ask us in the comment section below. If after flashing the zip file, your device doesn’t boot, Install Xposed framework remover zip from above link. If after installing zip, Xposed is not working, Install different zip file from (ARM,ARM64 & x86).

      Why can’t people read the article first. There’s a different xposed version for Samsung devices. First uninstall the Xposed Framework using the uninstaller zip then read the article again.

    Hey,

    I followed your instructions (using TWRP), but when I rebooted (or try to turn on) my phone (Samsung S6), it just doesn’t turn on. The blue notification LED and ‘Samsung S6, Powered by Android’ bit comes up, then goes black and doesn’t boot.

    I can uninstall the .zip using the uninstall file, but I really want to have xposed.

    Anyone know what my problem is?

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      As I have said, there’s different Xposed for Samsung devices. You can find the link in first para. Anyways, here’s link Samsung Xposed

  • Syrinx

    Thanks for the guide, I will try it as soon as possible. But first I have a question: I am using a Samsung Tablet 2 10.1 with CM 13 and custom recovery. Should I use the a samsung specific xposed zip or the one given here?

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      Given here. As you have changed the OS to CM, you can consider your device as stock Android device like Nexus devices.

      • Syrinx

        Makes sense. But although I did everything as described, it still says my device was not supported after opening the afterwards installed apk. I flashed the zip through the external SD BTW, did this make any difference?

        • Devs-Lab Staff

          May I know which zip file you have flashed?

          • Syrinx

            Sure, I took xposed-v85-sdk23-arm zipped as it is, since it was recommended as the most common one.

  • Hehehe

    Asus zenfone 2 laser (ze500kl) .6.1..what exposed can i used ? .help me .

    • Devs-Lab Staff

  • ND

    I have a nexus 6 device on CM13.0 20160402 nightly build. I downloaded v85 arm (32bit). tried above steps using TWRP. When I launched xposed app, and entered the framework menu, it says – not compatible with SDK 23 or your processor architecture armeabiv7a, and below that libdvm.so not found.

    so I uninstalled the app, as well as uninstalled the framework and tried a version 79 arm (32bit). still ran into same issues.

    I even tried a 64bit installation, got a error that its compatible with my platform (device is 32bit), so I couldn’t flash it.

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      Nexus 6 is a 32-bit device. Some MM devices are creating issues with Xposed.

      We’ll soon share a complete procedure. Btw yeah, this will work in any Marshmallow device.

  • Walt

    Nexus 6 running stock 6.0.1, rooted with later TWRP. Which version should flash? I’ve tried 3 different ones, but got an error each time. Thanks in advance.

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      6.0.1 64-bit

    • Glock

      Is the error saying “short write”? If so, it’s because you do not have enough space in your system partition. Marshmallow uses nearly all of it. You have to remove some unused apps from the system partition and free up at least 10 MB.
