Xposed Installer is an app that allows you to make small adjustments to your device’s operating system. They’re small enough that they’ll continue working after you restart your device, but important enough to help you get the most out of any Android device.
Make the most of the customization possibilities of your Android device thanks to Xposed Framework, which you can install on your smartphone or tablet through the APK of Xposed Installer.
Modify Android without flashing a ROM.
With this module repository on your phone you can check out new functionalities on Android Lollipop or Marshmallow without having to mess around with the device’s ROM, therefore, the process is totally reversible, unlike what happens when we flash our smartphone with a ROM like Cyanogenmod, for instance.
How to use Xposed Framework
The first thing is to root our phone to become the superuser of the device on which we want to install Xposed Framework. Then we just have to download the APK of Xposed Installer, run it and access the different modules available. There are thousands of them, but probably the best place to find them all is the XDA forum, the community of mobile software developers. Requirements and additional information:
- Minimum operating system requirements: Android 5.0
- The installation of the app by means of the APK file requires the activation of the “Unknown sources” option within Settings>Applications.
It’s important to keep in mind that installing the Xposed framework may cause some problems. It’s not very common but if you’re not careful the app can disable your Android and force you to reformat it. So, follow the simple instructions that appear on the screen.
Once you’ve installed the Xposed framework and have restarted your device, check out all the different modules available. You’ll be able to see all the different names and descriptions of more than 100 different options on the app’s interface. Some of them are only aesthetic and allow you to change the color of your keyboard, while others let you disable the permissions given to apps you already have installed.
Xposed Installer is an interesting tool for Android users who want to take advantage of their device. In a way, Xposed Installer gives you the benefits of a customizable ROM without the messy downsides.
