If you’re looking for multiple reasons to root your Android device, Xposed Framework is the only reason you need. This incredible hub of mini-apps enables you to install almost any kind of feature you could possibly imagine in the form of modules. In order to install Xposed Framework on Android, you need a rooted device and the right version of the app.
Although the Xposed Framework has been out there for a few years now, it is now available for all Android 6.0 Marshmallow devices. But before you can run Xposed Framework, you need to install it based on the right CPU Architecture.
Step 1: Find out the CPU architecture of your device
To install Xposed Framework on your Android device, you need to select the correct version based on its CPU architecture. To find out the CPU architecture of your device, use an app called Hardware Info. The app is available on the Google Play Store for free, so download it with the link below.
Once you have installed the Hardware Info app, open the “Processor” tab and view the CPU architecture type of your device. Once you have discovered the CPU architecture of your device (ARMv7, ARM64, and x86), go ahead and download the appropriate Xposed Framework version.
- Xposed Framework for ARMv7 Marshmallow devices
- Xposed Framework for ARM64 Marshmallow devices
- Xposed Framework for x86 Marshmallow devices
Apart from the Xposed Framework file, you also need the Xposed Installer app to get the software working. You can download the Xposed Installer .APK file for all Android 6.0 Marshmallow devices below.
Step 2: Install Xposed Framework on Android with custom recovery
Once you have downloaded both the files, reboot your phone into recovery mode to install the Xposed Framework .zip file. Power down your device, then press and hold down the power and volume down button to enter recovery mode.
If you have a custom recovery such as TWRP installed on your device, press “Install” and then select the location where you have saved the Xposed Framework .zip file. Tap on the file, press “Install Image” and then swipe to the right to confirm flashing. You can then press the “Reboot System” button and proceed forward to the next step.
Step 3: Install the Xposed Installer app on your device
Once your device finishes rebooting, it’s time to install the .APK file you had previously downloaded to your device. Go the “Downloads” app on your device and tap on the “XposedInstaller_3.0_aplha4.apk” file and install it as usual.
Once the installation completes, you can go ahead and fire up the newly downloaded Xposed Installer. However, since the service in alpha testing, not all modules will be compatible or work properly with Android Marshmallow.
