The ability to customize and personalize your device is something we know and love, most oftenly offered by the android operating system. Although the amount of mods and customizations we can apply to our android devices are countless, there are android users among us who are constantly searching for even more, and digging deeper. That is where Xposed comes into play.
Xposed uses your device’s Root access to access the deepest levels of your operating system, allowing apps to make modifications to the core parts of the operating system. As a side dish to go with the main course, there are what’s called “Modules” to complement the framework. These modules can be downloaded within the Xposed Framework app, and can also be downloaded as an APK on the Xposed repository website or the XDA website.
Once you have downloaded modules that suit your taste, you would have to select and activate them within the Xposed Framework by selecting the “modules settings”, then rebooting your device, rinse and repeat. There are many unique Xposed modules that offer modifications that take customization to the next level. Examples of these include AD Blocking for websites and the YouTube app, changing statusbar/navbar looks, and some useful utilities that prove to be very helpful. While Xposed is great and all, there are some factors that users like you and I should take into consideration. Xposed is not supported on some ROMS and android versions, such as android 5.0 Lollipop. If you do not know what you are doing, I would advise you to do your research before playing around with Xposed.
