I'm using systemless Xposed Framework module (v90.2 beta 3) of Magisk Framework (v17.1) on a rooted OnePlus 6 running OxygenOS v5.1.8 (Android 8.1.0).

I'm having an issue with Xposed Framework and Play Store. Play Store crashes whenever I try to browse for an app, or install, or update an app. This problem has affected others users as well with no solution from rovo89 or topjohnwu as of yet.

I tried to identify the issue in logcat, just like the user here but miserably failed to understand what caused the crash.

The issue goes away so long as I keep disabled Xposed Framework from Xposed installer or from Magisk Manager.

How do I fix this problem?

The developer of GravityBox Xposed modules, C3C0, suggested to use official and original Xposed Framework (flashes system partition and breaks Safety Net). They confirmed it working alongside Play Store, but on Android 8.0 though.

Alternatively, as suggested by Izzy and beeshyams in site's chat room, one can try Yalp Store from F-Droid, as an alternative to Play Store and as an interim solution. It fetches apps' updates and new apps directly from Play Store. It also provides sufficient information regarding the app to be installed, such as What's new, permissions, Exodus privacy report, and so on.

    As long as you either have no apps using Play License Check or original Playstore does at least that without crashing, Yalp (or its fork Aurora) are fully sufficient (even better: cleaner, more straight-forward, no ads). Logged in with your G-account it can even update paid apps. I use it myself (as on my only device with GApps, Playstore refuses to update my apps saying "no network", but manages to update itself and PlayServices fine ¯_(ツ)_/¯). – Izzy Nov 3 '18 at 12:11
  • Remembered to mention that safety net test fails just by using Magisk Xposed. No fix AFAIK – beeshyams Nov 5 '18 at 6:48

    @Izzy remember I was complaining about Aurora crashing occasionally, I updated and ever since then, I never encountered that problem again ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°). BTW I love Aurora UI and theming, besides no annoying stuff to self update unlike GPlay. – xavier_fakerat Nov 5 '18 at 17:25
