Xposed Framework for Android 5.0 Lollipop coming "soon"
The popular Xposed Framework, which allows for a wide range of customization tweaks to Android, sadly is not yet working with Android 5.0 Lollipop. Developer, rovo89 had previously commented about issues with development time and adapting the software to various new Lollipop features, but it looks like a release may finally be nearing.
Commenting briefly on the XDA Forum, rovo89 indicates that Xposed for Lollipop could be ready “soon” and that it is already “working very well”. Previously, it was not even clear if bringing all of the features over to Lollipop would be possible, but fortunately it seems that development has come along well and is working on his own Nexus 5, as shown in the screen-shot below.
Previously, compatibility issues with the ART run time, SE Linux security and a lack of time to commit to the project had been holding back a Lollipop version of the software.
We still don’t have a date set for release, but this is a much more upbeat outlook for Xposed fans than there appeared to be towards the end of last year. Hopefully it won’t be too long until Lollipop users can resume tinkering with Xposed Framework.
