Xposed is a very complex framework for Android devices with root access. It provides a horde of possibilities on Android device that you’ll get your favorite features in any ROM. The best part is that you don’t even need to write a piece of code or compile/decompile an APK. The Xposed framework will do everything for you without messing up the apps. It’s as easy as installing an app and activating it.

Android Nougat has brought many changes to the Android ecosystem and it’s really hard for the developers to cope up with never-ending changes. The jump from Marshmallow to Nougat was a major one when it comes to technicality. There were a lot of things modified in the latest ART version and it’s making hard for the Xposed developer “rovo89” to make a stable Xposed version for Nougat. Many people were worrying if they’ll ever see Xposed on Nougat. Particularly, Xposed for Nougat has become a new question in everyone’s mind.

The Xposed developer has recently shed hopes on Nougat support when he said he’s still working on it and didn’t give up. According to him, the update still needs time and he’s working as much as he can on the Xposed integration to Nougat. Currently, the developer is working only a few hours (5 hours as per his update) a week on the Xposed project and he said it would take hundreds of hours to bring Xposed to Nougat.

So, you can still keep your hopes on Xposed for Lineage OS 14.1. We’ll update you on the Xposed build status and downloads actively on this page.
