I did a test with the old original Xprivacy app
. Oreo 8.1, Magisk v23, Riru v 25.4.4
it works, but whole phone is slowed down. Every app is checked and Xprivacy popup asks you how to proceed (accept or deny internet/load/whatever request). It works how it should but sadly phone is slowed down and wallpaper doesn't load after phone bootup
it doesn't work, because: Every app just bypasses most Xprivacy functions, you only get a meaningless Binder Xprivacy popup. Xprivacy has no control over what apps do. Apps do what they want and don't ask for your permission
With Xposed Installer:
it runs perfectly, flawlessly. Using the good old "Xposed Installer" with Xposed Framework version 90-beta3, the original. You know every url and request every app does, if they scan your nearby wifi, if or when they use record in cam or audio, scan your contacts, request some device identifiers, you can whitelist the urls, internet requests and loads you want. All app requests logged, apps can't do nothing without your permission. Very useful because you can use (whitelist) the functions in any app that you use and want, and dismiss the rest that's bundled within the app (ad networks, telemetry requests, proprietary functions. resource-hungry unnecessary actions). In the new XprivacyLua these features and logs and this sort of control is not possible. This is why the old original Xprivacy is superior.
