Install Xposed Framework on your Magisk rooted Aristo 2 / 2 +
Note: While it is nice to have Xposed Framework on your phone, as there are many tweaks available as xposed modules, that are not possible if the framework were not installed, there is one caveat I should mention. Xposed framework breaks SafetyNet, as it is not possible for Magisk to completely hide Xposed framework. So if you are running an app that tests if your phone is rooted, you may not be able to slide if you install xposed framework. OK, fair warning given.
- A rooted LG Aristo 2 or Aristo 2 plus running Magisk.
1. Download and install the Xposed Installer 3.1.5 (systemless)
android app from here:
2. On your phone, launch Magisk Manager
3. Touch the 3 horizontal lines in the upper left and select Downloads
from the menu.
4. Touch the magnifying glass then type xposed
5. Scroll down the list and find Xposed Framework (SDK 25)
. Touch the download
icon on the right.
6. A dialog will appear asking what you want to do. Touch the word INSTALL
on the bottom right side of the dialog.
7. Magisk Manager will display a Downloading
dialog and display the progress. Once the download is complete, Magisk Manager will flash the Xposed framework to your phone. When it is done, touch the word REBOOT
on the bottom right of the Flashing
8. Your phone will now reboot. Note that it is not unusual for the first boot after Xposed Framework
is installed to take more than 10 min to complete. However, when I flashed using this method, it booted up rather quickly.
Update: last time I tried this it took over 10 minutes to boot, but I did not have to do any additional reboots
9. Once your phone boots up, launch Xposed installer 3.1.5
, it will likely indicate that Xposed framework is not installed
. Don't worry, this is expected. If the installer indicates that Xposed Framework IS installed, you are not only very lucky, you are done !! Otherwise, continue to the next step.
10. Reboot phone.
11. Once your phone boots up, launch Xposed installer 3.1.5
again. Check Xposed framework installation status
. If it shows as installed, congratulations, you are done. If not, continue to next step.
12. Reboot phone again. Go back to Step 11
My experience is that it takes anywhere from 2 to 4 boots (usually 2 or 3) before the Xposed installer recognizes that Xposed framework
