How to install xposed framework for lollipop 5.0
Step 1: Find Your Device’s CPU Architecture & Android Version
There are three different versions of the Xposed Framework for Lollipop devices, and each is designed for a specific CPU architecture. It can be fairly difficult to find your device’s CPU architecture, so if you don’t know this information off the top of your head, I’d suggest that you download a free app called Hardware Info.

Once you’ve installed Hardware Info, simply open the app and tap the “Processor” entry. From here, look for one of three CPU architecture types—ARMv7, ARM64, or x86. The exact location of these CPU architecture names will vary, but you should see one of the three somewhere under theProcessor category.
From there, head to the “About Phone” or “About Tablet” menu in Settings, then take note of your Android Version, as this will be used to determine the right files that you’ll need to download.
Step 2: Download Necessary Files
There are two core elements to Xposed—one is the Xposed Framework, which lays all of the groundwork, and the other is the Xposed Installer app, which allows you to download and manage modules. First up, grab a copy of the Installer from the following link, as this is the same for all devices:
XposedInstaller_3.0-alpha4.apk from this thread: Must be installed to manage installed modules, the framework won’t work without it.
No, it’s not using material design yet. Yes, there are more important topics for now.
xposed*.zip from http://dl-xda.xposed.info/framework/: Must be flashed with a custom recovery (e.g. TWRP) to install the framework.
SDK21 is Android 5.0 (Lollipop), SDK22 is Android 5.1 (also Lollipop) and SDK23 isAndroid 6.0 (Marshmallow).
I only support the latest Xposed version!
xposed-uninstaller*.zip from http://dl-xda.xposed.info/framework/: Can be flashed with a custom recovery (e.g. TWRP) to uninstall the framework.
The small .asc files are GPG signatures of the .zip files. You can verify them against this key (fingerprint: 0DC8 2B3E B1C4 6D48 33B4 C434 E82F 0871 7235 F333). That’s actually the master key, the files are signed with subkey 852109AA.
Step 3: Boot into Custom Recovery
When the files have finished downloading, the next step is to boot into custom recovery. To do that, start by powering your device completely off. This next part may vary, but for most devices, press and hold the volume down and power buttons simultaneously.
This will bring up Android’s Bootloader menu. From here, use the volume down button to highlight “Recovery mode,” then press the power button to select it.
Step 4: Install the Framework in Custom Recovery
Before you flash anything in custom recovery, it’s always a good idea to make a full NANDroid backup. That’s extra important in this case, since the Xposed Framework is in its early stages and may cause issues with some devices. Do not skip this step!
Then, to get started, go ahead and tap the “Install” button from TWRP’s main menu. Next, navigate to your device’s Download folder, then select the Xposed ZIP file that you downloaded in Step 1.
After that, just swipe the slider at the bottom of the screen to install the Framework, and when that’s finished, tap “Reboot System.”
Your device will take longer than normal to boot up here. This is because the Xposed Framework ZIP had to clear away some library files, which will need to be restored. Expect this process to take at least 10 minutes.
Step 5: Install the Xposed Installer App
When you get back up, it’s time to install the actual Xposed Installer app. Tap the Download Complete notification for the “XposedInstaller_3.0-alpha4.apk” file, then press “Install” and “Open” on the next two menus.
At this point, you should be looking at that familiar Xposed interface we all know and love. Head to the “Download” section to begin browsing modules, but keep in mind that some may not work on Lollipop.
