Ten days into the new year and we finally have this good news. Xposed framework is one of the most seamless way for users to tweak their Android-powered OS. The framework for Android Oreo 8.0 and 8.1 was released this week. Thanks to rovo89 for this cool update.
The number of people willing to root their device has considerably decreased over the last few Android versions. This is because many root features like Screen recording, Battery saving and themes are now supported in new Android versions without root.
A thing to be noted is that rovo89 took longer to release Xposed for Nougat than Oreo. The framework for Nougat was released in October whereas Android Nougat was available in 2016. Considering the time, rovo89 has done a brilliant job when releasing Xposed for Android Oreo.
The framework is under beta testing and expected to have a lot of bugs. Users who wish to use this framework prepare yourself to handle some bootloops. Rovo89 reassured that the updated beta would fix once he can zero-in on the cause of the problem. In the meantime, he asked users to report on any problems that they face while using this system with Xposed.

You might face frequent app crashes, and if it gets too much you can uninstall it by flashing the uninstaller. Users running Android Oreo 8.0 should flash the zip file with SDK level 26 while Oreo 8.1 users will need the zip file with SDK level 27.
You can install Xposed on your device by following one of the steps
- Download Xposed manager apk and the correct Xposed zip
- Boot into custom recovery and flash the zip
- Install the apk
This method is for users who have rooted their device using Magisk. There’s a dedicated Magisk module that will install Xposed systemlessly.
- Open Magisk manager and click on downloads
- Scroll down until you find Xposed and click download
- The installation process will begin soon
We did some research about Xposed feedback and users were quite satisfied with it. Some users felt that there was no new Xposed modules in this update and while others were complaining that SafetyNet was getting breached (obviously).
Let us know if Xposed works on your device.
