Default [QQ] Install backup after ROM update

After upgrading to Android 4.4.4 I noticed during the re-enbabling of Xposed it said something like, "backup already exists".

Does this mean it didn't back up again or it overwrote it? I don't know if 4.4.4 updated the executable replaced by Xposed but I'd like to know if the backup I do have now is of the correct version for 4.4.4 and not the previous backup from 4.4.3 (the date stamp of 1970 doesn't help).

Are you talking about OTA? Did you have to uninstall Xposed first? Because that would remove the backup. If you didn't have to uninstall Xposed before and the version numbers were still green afterwards, then app_process wasn't part of the OTA update. I had a quick look at hammerhead-KTU84P-from-KTU84M.c08cce45.zip and indeed it doesn't include a patch file for app_process.
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!

Yes the OTA but I sideloaded it with adb. I didn't do anything with Xposed before the update, which in hindsight was dumb, but if the file wasn't updated by the OTA I suppose I'm ok.

All Xposed said was that it wasn't running and to install/update and reboot, which I did.
