Hello everybody, here's a small tutorial on using/installing Xposed Framework, probably the most innovative concept for Android lately. But what is it?

The developer calls it "a framework which gives you the possibility to modify your ROM - without modifying any APK (developers) or flashing (users)!"

 

The advantages?

  • No need to modify any APKs. This means:
    • No need to decompile, change things in smali, compile, sign, ...
    • It will work for odexed and deodexed ROMs.
    • Your mod is not bound to a specific version of the ROM. Unless there is a major change in the methods called for a certain functionality,¬†your mod will continue to work even when you upgrade your ROM. Hell, it will probably even work with different ROMs.
    • Multiple mods can be installed at the same time, even if they change the same package. So you can use these battery icons and those quick toggles. Even hooking the same method twice is possible. Of course, this only works properly if the mods are not trying to do incompatible things.
  • It does its magic at runtime. That means you can implement options to let the user decide if they prefer the bikeshed to be painted in red or blue. Or you can have some extra logic for certain ROMs without building different mod versions.
  • It can be disabled easily without having to reflash.
  • It's open source.

 

Well, let's start this tutorial then!

 

1. First of all, you need a rooted device. If you haven't rooted your device yet, make sure to make a backup before you do it. It's a fairly easy process, a tutorial on rooting the A50P can be found on XDA:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2353806

 

2. Download the installer here: http://dl.xposed.info/latest.apk

 

3. Enable 'Unknown Sources' in the Security section of your device's settings if you haven't done it yet, and install the APK you just downloaded.

4. Open the Xposed Installer, tap on Framework and 'Install/Update'. It will ask you to reboot, so do it.

5. If your device boots up well: congratulations! Xposed Framework is installed :D

 

6. Now you'll have to install modules. Modules are seperate APK files you have to install, and they add functionality to your device using the framework. Modules are managed through the Xposed Installer app you installed earlier, so don't remove it!

There are two ways to get modules:

  • The official repository: open the app and tap "Download". Here you can find and download several modules, just tap on the module and tap the Download button under the description. Aferwards, install the APK like you're used to and reboot your device to see the effects. You can also sort all modules and search them. This is probably the easiest method of finding modules.

  • XDA-Developers: you can search the forum, there are lots of modules that aren't added to the official repo yet. There's also an index of modules here:¬†http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2327541. These modules will come in the form of an APK download: download and install the apk file and tap the notification that appears. You'll be taken to the Modules section of the main app, now turn on the module by checking the box left to the module you just added. To see the changes, reboot your device. Optional settings can be accessed by tapping on the module itself in the Modules section of the app
