Here is how i got it to work without a Custom recovery
follow my steps perfectly
Found these instructions in Italian on how to install without recovery (i edited and translated them to work correctly):
This Guide will show you how to install Xposed Framework on the LG G Stylo with Android
Lollipop 5.1.1 without recovery!
Busybox installed on the device: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....busybox&hl=en
Script Manager: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...tmanager&hl=en
Package needed Xposed Boost Stylo.zip: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24052804347813218
1- Download the package by pressing the link
3- Put the contents of the folder in the root of internal or external storage of the device (no sub-folders).
4- Install Xposed (the apk is among the file you just put into the device) BUT do not open it
5- Open Script Manager and navigate to the installer file (script) and chose script, su then press save .
6- now select the same script and press run and choose the option according to what you want (Yes/No)
7- Wait for the script to finish, now go to Xposed Installer apk that you installed before and select soft reboot (it will turn off just power back on)
8- After restart and you may use Xposed properly
PS: procedure performed perfectly on Boost LG G Stylo which as you know does not have recovery mod, should work on other 5.1.1 phones
