The Samsung Galaxy S6 has received a nice surprise today. It officially supports Xposed framework and Xposed modules on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. Xposed has been available on Android 5.1.1 for months, but not on Android 5.1.1 TouchWiz, only stock Android.
Samsung has made a lot of modifications to ART on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop causing compatibility problems with Xposed framework. This caused developers to delay support for the Galaxy S6 for months, but “wanam” has taken care of this problem by making Xposed work on Samsung Galaxy S6 running on the latest Android 5.1.1 Lollipop version.
Wanam is a known developer who creates various modifications for many Galaxy phones, one of the being the Wanam ROM and Wanam Xposed module. The framework has been tested on the SM-G920F version of the Samsung Galaxy S6 but the developer states that it should work on all other variants and even upcoming Samsung ARM64 phones. This is a good news for all upcoming Galaxy owners.
Wanam considers the framework as experimental, but it seems to be working fine. If you want to install Xposed framework on your phone, you should consider a few things.
- Deodexed TouchWiz Android 5.1.1 Lollipop ROM. It can be stock or custom.
- Custom recovery
- Download Xposed zip file to your phone.
- Turn off your Galaxy S6 and boot into CWM recovery.
- Make a backup and flash the file.
- Reboot your phone.
Now you can install Xposed Installer and then your preferred modules. Please note that not all modules are working on the Samsung Galaxy S6 at the moment.
