Hello,

I have installed Xposed Framework and Xprivacy successfully in my rooted stock HTC one (m8), everything was working fine but i didnt like how xprivacy bugged me whenever I updated an app. anyways I chose to disable the module.

So I went to Xposed app, disabled Xprivacy, I also uninstalled xprivacy manually after that in android's App management.

since then the phone keeps on restarting, it restarts and functions for a minute then automatically restarts.

I restored using a Nand recovery backup and now its working fine, but I still have Xprivaxy installed.



has anyone faced this issue? Also, does someone know a safe method to uninstall Xprivacy?


Thanks

Did you check if was already installed when you did the backup? It looks weird because TWRP does a wipe before restoring data, so Xprivacy should not be there anymore. Yoy can also try to wipe manually the data partition, but you will have to start config, install & update apps again from scratch.

I knew xprivacy will still be there after restoring because i took tge backup when it was installed.

The phone doesbt restart now but i want to uninstall Xprivacy, any idea how to do it without making the phond restart every minute??

Try to install it again and enable the module in Xposer, restart, then disable the module in Xposer, restart once more and then try to uninstall it.

Do a full restart every time, so disable the fast boot option in energy settings.

Good luck!

This is weird, I tried to install, enable, configure and then I uninstalled without any problem.
I'm using ARHD 8.0, but it's almost totally stock.

I'll try to check what files are installed with the package, and maybe you can try to remove them manually using filemanager from TWRP.

I'm sorry, I tried a lot things and I can't replicate your problem. Even if I try to uninstall it with the module enabled in Xposer does it works.

I've been reading at: https://sourcegraph.com/github.com/M66B/XPrivacy the uninstall methods and are the same we tried.

If you want to uninstall XPrivacy, you have two options:

1. Disable XPrivacy in the Xposed installer
2. Uninstall Xposed using the Xposed installer

I think I can't help you with this

Maybe you could try to uninstall and reinstall Xposer and see what happens...

Thanks for your assistance mate, I uninstalled Xprivacy again, this time I didnt disable the module in Xposed before uninstalling the App, I just uninstalled Xprivacy, it worked, no issues

So I guess an advise for anyone disabling or uninstalling Xprivacy would be to take a NAND backup of the phone before uninstalling incase the restart issue happens.

Thanks to all.

Great! I'm glad finally you get rid of that module!

Make a Nandroid backup is always recommended for everyone having rooted devices, it takes less than 5 mins and saves a life...
