Developer Xposed framework hint at early release Lollipop version




It seems that the Xposed framework will soon be suitable for Android Lollipop. This popular tool for hobbyists still does not work with the ART runtime that Google introduced at the Lollipop versions, but developers have gotten the framework running.

On the forum of XDA Developers has one of the main developers a screenshot posted a Nexus 5 running on Android 5.0.2. From the log shown it can be seen that the Xposed framework now runs on Android 5.0 and higher, codenamed Lollipop, coupled with the ART runtime. This suggests that Xposed is quickly released to users, though there is no announced date.

Until now, there was still unclear about whether Xposed would be suitable for the ART runtime. The developers indicated only compatibility for ART will develop once it through Google would be set as default. That’s been the case with Android Lollipop: in previous Android versions was the use of ART still experimental.

Xposed is a plug-in framework, that allows Android users to extend the functionality of the operating system without having to work with applications. For example there are plug-ins to customize privacy settings or block ads. To install Xposed is root access required.

A couple developers said last week already know that they are working on an alternative Xposed Android Lollipop as El Pollo. That project is still at an early stage. It is unclear whether the imminent arrival of Xposed Android Lollipop ensures that the creators of El Pollo stop the development.
