Default 2.4.1 to 2.6.1 install

I just updated my ROM to Beanstalk 4.4.285 and now xposed does not work. It is still showing up as being installed in the all apps list. The app drawer does not show it anywhere. My installed modules are still listed. I downloaded the newest version from the website but it says it is already installed and the signature is a mismatch. I can not uninstall as I do not have the app listed. Anyway to remove it to reinstall?

I'm confused, you say you can't uninstall it because the app is not listed but you also say it is showing in the all apps list. Do you just mean it isn't showing in the app drawer? If so, that doesn't matter. Go to the all apps list and uninstall it from there. Then install the update and it should work.

Have you tried turning it off and on again??

Going to Settings > Apps > Downloaded does not show it, swiping to the All column shows the Xposed Installer. Clicking on this only gives me 2 options, Force stop, and disable. There is no uninstall option button. I have Clear data, Clear cache, Backup.. but no uninstall

it sounds like xposed came with your rom. is this the case? if so, you may need to go to your rom's thread to get help.

It's a system app, that's why you can't uninstall it from settings. Either uninstall with xposed disabler zip in recovery or with titanium backup. Then install what you want.

The disabler zip doesn't remove the APK, it just restores the orignal /system/bin/app_process.
TB should work, even though the system app will probably come back when you upgrade your ROM.
Disabling the signature check means that the system APK remains there, which I think is not so nice. Plus, it's quite dangerous: http://www.xda-developers.com/androi...-you-shouldnt/

Long story short: These are some reasons why I strongly recommend not to include Xposed in ROMs. I won't give you further support, please ask for help in your ROM's thread.
Tired of updating your mod for every new ROM release?
You want give users the possibility to combine different mods without creating tons of different files for all possible combinations?
Then have a look at my Xposed framework - modifications without APK changes!
