If you’ve been holding off on upgrading to Android Lollipop due to the changes made in runtimes between versions that have disabled Xposed, well get out your flashing tools and go for it as Xposed for Android 5+ is her – in alpha form at least.
The update reportedly works with older modules, so there’s no need to worry that you’re going to have to wait until both Xposed and your module developer get out of alpha testing although some modules that modify things based on frameworks used in the 4.x versions of Android might fail completely.
There’s no Xposed uninstaller or cleanup tool at the moment as development is focusing on getting the thing solid, so if you’re planning on installing it make sure to nandroid backup at least your system partition as that’s all that’s really touched by the Xposed installer according to the developer.
Xposed of course brings with it headaches for ROM developers as it modifies things behind the scenes and can butt heads with the way the developer has chosen to work the system, so if you’re going to used Xposed and a custom ROM, make sure that you disable Xposed before complaining to a ROM developer that something wonky is going on or you’ll probably get your head chewed off.
