Xposed framework on Android 6.0 Marshmallow? Developer says he is "on a good way"

Xposed framework on Android 6.0 Marshmallow? Developer says he is "on a good way"

It won't be a grand overstatement to claim that Xposed framework is to the tech-savvy Android community as to what the Holy Grail was to the Medieval man - everything is right in the world if you can get your hands on either. The framework, which is mainly developed by recognized XDA developer rovo89, allows for almost unprecedented control over Android, not to mention the bottomless pit of customization options the various Xposed modules offer.

Those devoted tinkerers who have already jumped on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow will probably be quite content to learn that rovo89 has already made some progress on the cumbersome task that is porting the framework to the newest version of the OS. It seems that won't be that easy since Google has modified the source code in many ways, and simply locating the changes is slowing down the developer from porting all of his ART modifications to the new version of Xposed. 

In his own words, the conversion is "more difficult than 5.0 -> 5.1" and has led to numerous issues that are currently hindering the progress. As usual, no release dates were given, but we wholeheartedly hope that Xposed fans will have reasons to celebrate in the near future.

I used to feel that way, but I haven't even rooted my device in over a year and I don't notice. What do you use it for?

Xposed was one of the first to intruded a full fledged permissions manager through modules. Also a good adblocker like adfree can prevent pop-ups and spam links from being displayed which further reduces the chances of one installing rogue apps

You can deny me custom ROMs, but just not Xposed. It gives an entirely new meaning to Android. To get the best experience with this magical stuff, get A phone on stock Android or a GPE.

Xposed is DEAD... and main thing is nothing interesting is in there..

Gravity box, wanam xposed, youtube adfree, physical button music control, lucky patcher, protected apps, smart booster, ussd inbox, xupdown, xblast tools, prevent force stopped apps from running, status bar download progress, etc are just some of the modules I use on a daily basis. All I can say is xposed gives your phone OS the level of control not achieve able by any app

Only used xposed on KitKat... That's when it was on its best IMO. Seeing how things are going, though, I may give it a try once again on marshmallow.

Hell yeah! I sure hope it's ready by the time my OnePlus One gets Marshmallow...otherwise, I'm sticking with lollipop until it's ready.

I installed multirom on my phone and have it dual booted with Marshmallow, and Cyanogenmod 12.1 with xposed installed! That's how I'm using it at the moment until xposed supports Marshmallow! :P
