Xposed Framework has a lot of followers out there because of the unheard of level of control it gives users of Android devices. There are those who like to tweak their Android devices, and then there are Xposed Framework users. So count this all as good news, that the developers of said tool are now officially launching Xposed for Android Lollipop. It has been a long time coming, but it’s finally here.
If you have to ask what Xposed Framework is and why you might need it, then chances are you probably might not need it. Yet. Xposed Framework basically gives you a method of control over your Android device on a system level. Some of us would usually rely on a custom ROM to give us these necessary features, but Xposed Framework gives you all of these in installable modules.
Pre-release and unofficial builds of Xposed for Lollipop have been making the rounds, but now the developers say they are ready to officially support Android 5.0 or better. First requirement for Xposed is gaining root access, and also an installation of a custom recovery. These will usually void your warranties, so if you want Xposed, make sure you have considered it a bit.
You can now download the files you need from the official XDA thread. First you need to flash the framework (sdk file) via custom recovery, then you have to install the module manager (apk file). There’s also an Xposed Bridge API file that developers can download to create their own modules.
