why .. an option to check manually would be fine..checking errors cosistently(or can make us choose cosistent or manual). only check log file manully to notify that 'this module' may have a problem/error..

If it checks it manually then couldn't you just as easily tap "Logs" and see for yourself?

I think a feature to check manually would be fine..checking errors cosistently Is not needed. (or can make us choose cosistent or manual). only check log file manully to notify that 'this module' may have a problem/error.. is it an appropriate idea?I dont know

You simply look at the log file. If something is wrong, you will see it without further explanations. Modules shouldn't write anything to the log if they are working fine (or just a very little bit). So I don't see how that should be analysed further. I understood your problem as "I couldn't check the log because the app crashed", and that will be fixed.

Xposed 2.5 beta
This is Xposed version 2.5 beta1. The main new features and fixes in this version are:
  • Rewritten framework installation/uninstallation
    • Uses interactive su (via libsuperuser) to provide improved compatibility with different Superuser apps
    • Better feedback when root access fails (doesn't freeze the app anymore)
    • Offers installation via custom recovery (CWM/TWRP), either flashing the file automatically or manually
  • Safemode to disable Xposed with hardware keys to get out of (most) bootloops
  • Compatibility with Sony/LG ROMs (4.3 and 4.4), Meizu ROMs (4.4)
  • Debug setting to disable resource hooking as a temporary workaround for incompatibilities with some theming engines (not all modules can be used in this mode)

There are also other improvements and fixes. In case you get a message "Segmentation fault" during installation, you can now download an additional app which provides statically compiled versions of BusyBox (a lot bigger, but should work everywhere). It's not needed otherwise.

Quick explanation of the safemode: It was developed by @Tungstwenty and makes it possible to disable Xposed by repeatedly pressing one of the hardware buttons during early startup. The phone will vibrate twice when the first key press has been detected. Then you have five seconds to press the same button four more times. Each key press will be confirmed with a short vibration; the final one with a long vibration. It creates /data/data/de.robv.android.xposed.installer/conf/disabled, which prevents most of Xposed's actions (e.g. no hooks are made and no modules are loaded). There's no 100% guarantee that this will get you out of a bootloop, but in most cases it should.

I will leave this version up for a few days for bug reports and to give translators a chance to add missing strings. Unless critical bugs are found, I plan to upload a final version to the repository (e.g. for auto-updates) some time next week.

Update: 2.5 beta2 includes some fixes in the root error detection, plus an indication that the installation mode text is actually clickable.

Update: The final version is out, please use it instead of the beta: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=9883

@rovo89: Will you be publishing the .zip version as well? Being eager, I flashed the .zip I linked to this morning for the heck of it, and it worked for me. I just tried the 2.5 beta 1 and it broke Xposed for me again. I just repeated what I did this morning to get it back again though. Also, out of curiosity, isn't it common to just have to install the .apk? (At least on my two other android devices and my Nexus 7 until I installed F2FS and Slimkat) Thanks again

The only thing I see under settings is Enable downloads. Am I looking in the wrong place?

Install the 2.5 beta 1 apk first. Then you can chose to install the framework as a zip rather than the traditional method.
