Tutorial FORGET FLASHING ROMS: USE THE XPOSED FRAMEWORK TO TWEAK YOUR ANDROID

Discussion in 'Mobile Modding Tools & Tutorial' started by Olu2nde, Nov 15, 2017.

    Many low-level tweaks can normally only be performed on Android by flashing custom ROMs. The Xposed Framework allows you to modify your existing system without installing a new custom ROM. All it requires is root access.

    Sure, you may want to flash a custom ROM like CyanogenMod to get the latest version of Android or use a wide variety of tweaks, but if you like the version of Android you already have, the Xposed framework is very flexible. Think of the Xposed Framework as building your own custom ROM for Android. Instead of downloading something like CyanogenMod, which comes with a bunch of new features baked in, Xposed lets you add just the features you want, one by one, through individual modules. No ROM flashing required. This article has a few examples of the things you can do, if you’re curious.


    How It Works

    The popular GravityBox Xposed module, which contains many useful tweaks in one package.
    To perform various low-level tweaks, developers have to modify system APK (app package) files. They generally release these changes as a custom ROM, which users have to flash onto their device.

    The Xposed Framework requires root access to install, but should be able to work without root afterwards. It extends the /system/bin/app_process executable to load a specific JAR file on startup. This file’s classes will be part of every app process on the system — even system service processes. It’s then possible to modify an app’s behavior at runtime — no ROM flashing or modifying app APK files required.


    Your phone will also need to be rooted. There’s no way around this, so if you haven’t rooted yet, there’s no better time than now! Every phone is a little different, so check out our rooting guide, and the XDA Developers Forum for your specific device for more information on how to root it.

    Lastly, keep in mind that–just like unlocking your bootloader and rooting–Xposed modules have access to deep system functions on your phone, and are a security risk. Only install modules from developers you trust, or search for open source modules and stick to those. Everything from here on out is at your own risk, so be careful and install responsibly.

    You can browse the different Xposed tweaks available at Xposed’s web site, and see lots more info and frequently asked questions on the Xposed forum at XDA Developers.

    Step One: Install the Xposed Framework

    The Xposed Framework is not available on Google Play, so you’ll need to install it through one of two other methods.

    Download from here :You must be registered to see links


    Step Two: Set Up the Xposed Installer and Download a Module

    Launch the Xposed Installer and you’ll be greeted with the screen below. You will need to tap the “Framework” option, then tap the Install/Update button to install the Xposed Framework. Then reboot your phone when finished

    Remember, Xposed requires root access, so if you get a prompt at this point from your superuser app. Grant Xposed Installer superuser rights to continue.

    Now that Xposed is all set up, it’s time for the fun part: installing modules. Xposed modules contain the different tweaks you can use to customize your system. Some are small, and only perform one function, while others are packages containing many useful tweaks. For this guide, we’re going to use a very simple example: XInsta, an Xposed module that adds an option to download photos from the Instagram app.

    Tap the “Download” section of the Xposed Installer and tap the search button in the toolbar. Search for “xinsta” and select the XInsta module that appears.

    Swipe over to the Versions tab and tap the “Download” button on the latest version. This will download and install the Xposed module in question.

    When finished, the module will be installed, but not activated. In the Xposed Installer, head to the Modules section (or just select the notification that appears in your notification dropdown). Check the box next to the module you want to activate, and reboot your phone.

    If you notice in the module’s description, it has one prerequisite: you need to give Instagram permission to access your phone’s storage. These kinds of things are common, so be sure to read the module’s description before you try to use it.

    To do this, head to Settings > Apps > Instagram > Permissions and switch “Storage” to On.

    Then, open the Instagram app and click the three dots next to a photo–if all went well, you should have the option to download that photo to your device.

    Congratulations, you just successfully installed your first Xposed module!

    Step Three: Tweak Your Module (if Applicable)

    Many of the Xposed modules you download will have their own interface, from which you can tweak different settings related to the module. You can usually access this by tapping on the module in the “Modules” section of the Xposed Installer. In other cases, the module may even come with its own icon in the app drawer, as seen below.

    Be sure to check out the settings for your modules. You never know what kind of goodies will be in there.

    You can also long-press on the item’s entry in the Xposed Installer to update or uninstall the module.

    Now that you’re up and running, we recommend browsing the Xposed module section to see all the things Xposed can offer. The list of the best Xposed modules is also a good place to start exploring. I highly recommend GravityBox, pictured earlier in this article, which collects of many useful tweaks into one customizable package.
