Xposed Framework on CM 12.1


What is Xposed Framework ?

Xposed is a framework for modules that change the behavior of the system and apps without touching any APKs. All the modification are done in memory, hence deactivating the module/s revert back the change/s followed by a reboot. Easy !! With Xposed modules a new level of android experience can be achieved.

This post shows how to install Xposed on CyanogenMod-12.1 As there is still no Official release of XposedInstaller and framework for L-5.1, super alpha version is used from xdadevelopers. Credit goes to the developers; @rovo89 for his original work Xposed framework, @romracer for bringing the Xposed framework to Android 5.1  and @C3C076 for his further contribution
