My phone is Sony xperia tipo dual st21i2 [Yes, its an old model].
I am facing problems installing xposed framework on this device. I installed the apk, when I try to install the framework, a window opens and says

Copying Xposed-disabler-recovery.zip..
Mounting\system writable...
Segmentation fault
Could not mount/system writable
Trying to continue anyway..
Segmentation fault

Failed to create a backup of /system/bin/app_process

Hi!

I can't find anything relevant to your device and xposed.

But a couple things...you are rooted? And you've verified root? The play store has root checker apps. I ask, because your error indicated xposed can't mount your system partition. Which will happen if you are not rooted. Or wrote protection is enabled. (Locked bootloader)

And do you have the current xposed framework? Here is the xposed framework thread. Its a good place to also post your error and see if anyone knows exactly what it means.

Good luck! 👍

My phone's rooted , but not with an unlocked bootloader. I was also thinking locked bootloader as a problem. But, you were talking about write protection. right? is it linked with locked bootloader?

Yes. Without a locked bootloader, or some exploit, you would be write protected. Making root pretty much useless. What custom recovery are you using? I can't understand how you'd be rooted with a locked bootloader....unless you did something to achieve root that works on locked bootloader.

Here's a useful post on your actual error....

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=52292102

I have never used it, so use at your own risk of course.

But again, if you are not actually rooted....xposed will never work. And if you are write protected...xposed may install, but anything you change will be undone after a hard reboot or power down. That's what I meant by root is not very useful without write protection disabled. Any changes you make to system will revert back to stock on reboot.

Well I dont really know very well about locked bootloader and all. This is my secondary phone. I have been using galaxy s3 gti9300, where the bootloader is unlocked. hm. I got to unlock bootloader.
I got root by this method http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1886460

That actually helped.
Problem now solved. Actually, it was a known issue. Someone told me to do not repost this issue.
And, I guess, the locked bootloader doesn't write protection enabled. I have installed xposed and rebooted two times now.

I read through some of the link you gave me about your root method. Some phones do exactly what I'm saying, changes revert on reboot. And oddly, not a single mention of xposed when I searched the thread.

I'd look at the links I already posted
...and if none of that helps, maybe ask in the thread that you posted about root....see if anyone knows anything about xposed and that method. Strange that there is not one single mention of xposed in over 300 pages in that thread. Lol

And just be sure that root checker, or another app that needs root actually work. Just cause you ran the root script doesn't mean its working.

Also... To check my write protection theory....try something that changes a system file, reboot and see if it is still changed. Like renaming an unimportant file on the system partition.... A media file maybe, in system/media. Use a file manager to do this. And if it works and its still renamed ...change it back to original name.

Yes, I have root, confirmed. Have used titanium backup and es file explorer. And I canged a system file, have downloaded an xperia theme (http://forum.xda-developers.com/xper...-dual-t2057997) and replaced the files in the /device/vendor folder with the ones mentioned. I guess, that confirms write protection disabled. right?

Yup...sounds good.

So again, you'll need to either check the xposed opening post, in the thread I linked, to be sure you have the right files and followed the instructions right on.......or ask for further assistance there.

Or you can ask about xposed in the thread you posted, where you got root from. Maybe xposed just doesn't work with this method.

I can only point you in those directions, as XDA Assist is not the place for support.....its a place for directions. As indicated in the purpose if XDA Assist thread.... http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2764768

Again, good luck! Hopefully people in these threads can narrow down your issue.
