As all rooted users Android users know, the popular Xposed framework is one of the tools users who have rooted their devices can use to differentiate their Android experiences from that provided by Google and other OEMs. The developer of Xposed(rovo89), has now pushed out an update to the framework, supporting devices running Android Oreo.
It has been noted that the previous update from Marshmallow to Nougat took over a year, owing mostly to the changes in app runtime made by the then new Android version. While the changes were welcome, the update to Nougat came at a time when Android Oreo was on the cusp of release. Rovo89 has been much faster, developing this new release just a few months after Android Oreo became publicly available.
The new framework now supports phones which run Oreo, including the Google Pixel, Pixel XL and sequels, the Huawei Mate 10 series of phones and HMD's Nokia 8, among others. To install the Xposed Framework on Android Oreo after rooting their devices, users will have to download the Xposed Installer for either 8.0 or 8.1 as appropriate, and then install it on your Android phone.
It is worth noting that the Xposed framework, being in Beta isn't stable yet. rovo89 notes that there have been a few app crashes he has experienced that occurs from time to time, but these haven't impacted the user experience overmuch. Users are directed to report bugs which are reproducible, and an updated beta will be out to smoothen out issues as time goes on. Are you planning on rooting your Android phone and modifying it with Xposed? Let us know in the comments below.
