Hmmm, where to begin...
First off, you need to be rooted in order to install XPosed. If you aren't comfortable being rooted, then you needn't look any further into this and the rest of my post is a waste...
If you are ok with rooting your phone, then let's go down the rabbit hole!
There are a lot of mods here on XDA. They typically require root access or a custom recovery (TWRP or other) to install. These work really well, but once you install them, they are very difficult to uninstall. And if you install a second mod, it might break your first mod. This makes it difficult to troubleshoot issues.
The XPosed Framework
allows modders to make customization packages (mods) which do not technically modify your system files. A good way to think of it is that these changes are done in an emulated way. You can install and uninstall mods without fear that their impact will linger on your system. It's a very powerful and robust modding system and, in my opinion, the way to go for people not wanting to go fully into flashing ROMs.
There is a giant list of XPosed Modules
that you can try out. I'm not here to make a review of all the various modules out there, but look for those specifically for KitKat and for TouchWiz (Wanam XPosed
is a good place to start).
If you have any more questions on XPosed, just let me know!
Hope this helps!
