Xposed Framework have landed on Android 5.1 Lollipop. Now you can install and enjoy your favorite modules in every device that is updated to Lollipop 5.1. For almost a year Xposed Framework has not been available to Android Lollipop due to the fact the it came redesigned and with a new architecture.
So to be able to work on Lollipop Xposed Framework need to be updated. At first it seems like a “Mission Impossible” but the creator of Xposed named as rovo89 managed to update Xposed Framework to support Lollipop. These proved again that Android is awesome. The Android community is bigger and it’s growing day by day. The developers never stop creating new stuff and updating the old ones.
If you haven’t heard about Xposed let me say a few words about it. Think as it is a pack with tons of customizations. Thanks to Xposed you can tweak your system without needed to flash any Custom ROM. Xposed work with modules. Each module can be installed as a normal app and then activate it under the Framework.
Once rovo89 released an official update for Android 5.0.Lollipop, the creators of modules also start updating their work. So almost of the modules are updated to work on Android 5.0. Here is a list with the best modules working on Lollipop.
After Lollipop 5.0 Google released another big update, Android 5.1. It brings many improvements and bug fixes because plethora of bugs were reported in Android 5.0. It was the biggest update for Android Lollipop and brings many changes. Xposed Framework was also broken and it won’t work on Android 5.1. Once the update comes to various devices, rovo89 the creator of Xposed start working again to release another updated version to work on Android 5.1.
Until now there is no word when the official update will come but what was surprising is that another developer at the XDA named as romracer has released a new Xposed version which works only on Android 5.1. The new version is based totally on the files of the original framework and it’s totally legit because romracer has taken permission from the original founder of Xposed Framework.
So if you already updated your phone to Android 5.1 and are looking for Xposed Framework you will need to install the unofficial version. There is nothing to worry because the new one is based on the original files of Xposed and will work perfect.
