I am on Samsung Galaxy note 3 SM-n900 Android 5.0 Stock Firmware (API-21). I am able to install xposed framework easily on Kitkat and Jellybean, however, i want to be on lollipop and cannot figure out how to get xposed on my device. i flashed CWM recovery first, then i installed this file "xposed-v84-sdk21-arm.zip" via CWM and my device is stuck on samsung logo forever!

here is the link

I was able to flash exposed framework on Cyanogenmod 12.1 but not on samsung lollipop

  • Search for xposed-v75-sdk21-arm.zip, or a version lesser than 75 if it doesn't work.

  • I'm running CM12.1 with xposed-v75-sdk22-arm. I'm unsure as if it will work for you, but you may want to give it a try. Also, the Xposed dev made a framework uninstaller, which is flashable as well.

  • Xposed runs on my deodexed CyanogenMod.

  • My advice, as I said, is to try with v75 or lesser. Plus, you shouldn't need to flash your ROM, since the dev made that uninstaller.

  • The Xposed Framework causes the bootloop. The uninstaller removes the Xposed Framework.

For Samsung Stock ROMs (based on TouchWiz UI), you have to flash the Arter's Xposed for Samsung Lollipop 5.0.x deodexed ROMs or Wanam's Xposed for Samsung Lollipop 5.1.x/ Marshmallow 6.0.x ROMs, instead of the rovo89's Xposed which is basically for AOSP & CM-based ROMs.

  • That's because ART came into effect since Lollipop.. See the title of that thread.. It says Xposed for "Samsung Lollipop/Marshmallow". Why don't you just believe and try it ? :) :) If it doesn't work, I'll delete my answer.

    @abbie , if you are so sure we're all wrong here, why don't you answer your own question and elaborate how the correct procedure is, plus where to find the "official builds" which you say are "out you guess"? Your current comments are rather suited to scare people off instead of helping you.

  • Ever since Lollipop 5.0, Samsung ship their stock ROMs with a heavily modded ART. That the primary cause for original Xposed framework not working well on Samsung stocks.
