Hi guys, I just wanted to find out whether xposed works properly on the galaxy S5? The reason why I want it is to block the in game ads, I wouldbt mind them if they were a bit smaller but the game becomes unplayable with the size of some of the ads! I read somewhere that it can softbrick your phone, is that true? If is is, then I think I'll leave it

Never found a report like soft brick by using xposed.
But found so many reports about crashing with S-health & private mode by using xposed.
I'm not a developer or a master.
Wait for answer from others.

Install AdAway for blocking adds https://f-droid.org/repository/browse/?fdid=org.adaway. Don`t think or heard of Xposed ever bricked a phone.

+1...... though I find Adblock plus works best for me. (sent from a healthy s5 running exposed framework)

You shouldn't block adverts. Just pay for the full version. You're decreasing the income for talented programmers, which will make them run away from Android.

And what do we do if they don't offer a pay version and subject us to ads anyway? I'll buy an app just to get rid of ads. It's a way to get people to buy apps that works. But if they're going to force me to have an obtrusive ad bar with no way to get rid of it? Yeah, I'll block them.
