Late last week, the developer of Xposed — rovo89 — released a new version of the framework that offers improved compatibility with ROMs from Huawei and other Chinese OEMs. The version 86 of the framework now also rejects any incorrectly compiled modules thereby preventing you from applying them.

Lastly, the framework packs in some general cleanup and bug fixes. Along with the release of the framework, rovo89 also detailed his future plans for it. He now plans on working on an official systemless Xposed framework for Marshmallow. While work has already begun on it, the developer does not promise any release timeframe. He does, however, note that installing the framework will require the use of SuperSU 2.76 or higher. In case you cannot for the official version of systemless Xposed to be released, you can grab the unofficial build of the framework made by developer topjohnwu. This is a pretty massive update to the framework that packs in lot of underlying changes. An official change log of the framework can be found below:

Thanks to latest SuperSU, the mounting process is MUCH simpler, and compatibility should massively improve

Path has been changed to /su/xposed/….., so don’t even need to bother image mounting issues (Require Xposed Installer App update!!)

app_process will now determine XposedBridge/xposed.prop pathes at runtime (compatible with both system and systemless)

Since SuperSU is now a mandatory requirement, using shell-script-like updater binary (same as SuperSU) should be feasible now. Removed platform dependent busybox binaries

Side benefit for using shell script: the zip can be flashed though rom zips like SuperSU does

Installation now handles “data un-accessible in recovery” (devices using proprietary encryption methods) much better

Flashable zip now support both system installation and systemless installation (see OP for more info)

Xposed now configurable with .xposed files, similar to SuperSU (see OP for more info)

Added universal uninstaller, the uninstaller can now uninstall both system and systemless installed Xposed. Also platform/sdk independent.

[XposedTools] XposedTools now support new “bundle” mode, which will create an all-in-one zip like I released v86.0. Previous individual modes are still working fine (didn’t break compatibility)

[XposedTools] Added build uninstaller zip as a new action
