What is Xposed Framework?

Xposed is a framework for modules that are able to modify the behaviour and looks of the Android operating system and apps. This means, that you are able to install modules which add custom ROM like features to the Android OS running on your device.

Xposed framework uses root access to directly access core Android resources and utilize them to run different modules on the device that bring new features to the OS.

So. why should you try Xposed instead of a custom ROM?

Sometimes custom ROMs can be buggy, overloaded or not even be available for your device. With the stock ROM running fine on your device, Xposed let’s you add the features you want without heavily modifying it. You can also combine Xposed with a custom ROM, to get even more features.

So Lets get Started
