Good news all!
For those who like to mod their Android devices, the Xposed framework is a revelation. You don't need to flash a new ROM, but you get a ton of customization options and system UI tweaks with relatively limited*risk. After months of waiting, Xposed may finally be coming to Lollipop.
Xposed requires root during the installation process, but then allows modules to be installed like any other apps.*These soft-mods are easily reversible and quite powerful. The*problem is that Xposed doesn't work with the new ART runtime, and that's the default in Lollipop. The*developer of Xposed has given us some hope with a new post on XDA—rovo89 posted simply "Soon...
Working very well already."
The screenshot included in rovo89's post*appears to show Xposed running on a Nexus 5 with Android 5.0.2. It seems like Xposed on Lollipop is about to happen.*Some people are really serious about Xposed, going so far as to stay on KitKat so they can keep using it. Whether or not you're a fan of Xposed, it'll be nice to have this all worked out.
