Hello, my name is Matheus and the day before yesterday i saw in XDA portal that someone (liudongmiao or rovo89, they didn't make it clear) ported Xposed framework to Gingerbread devices. For now, the only module i know that works is Xprivacy. As the op says,
XPrivacy can prevent applications from leaking privacy sensitive data. XPrivacy can restrict the categories of data an application can access. This is done by feeding an application with no or fake data. There are several data categories which can be restricted, for example contacts or location. For example, if you restrict access to contacts for an application, this will result in sending an empty contact list to the application. Similarly, restricting an application's access to your location will result in a set location being sent to the application.
Update:
Guys, rovo89 updated the 2.3 backport to final. Now, the major changes:
context menu in the modules list (for app info, support link, uninstall etc.)
hopefully fixed incompatibilities with a few ICS ROMs
workaround for a Paranoid lockscreen bug (appeared only under certain circumstances)
better error output if app_process is not compatible (that "Xposed is not (yet) compatible with Android SDK version ..." message)
several UI and navigation fixes
/data/xposed not longer exists, those files are now stored in the standard folder /data/data/de.robv.android.xposed.installer
This means you need to enable your modules again for this update
The flashable zip to uninstall Xposed in case of bootloops has changed and should work for ARM and x86 now - if a few of you could test it (especially with TWRP), that would be great. It is written to the SD card automatically (Xposed-Disabler-Recovery.zip). After it's flashed, the framework section should display that app_process is not installed.
The "cleanup" button is no longer needed. The "uninstall" button restores the original app_process binary. Uninstalling the Xposed Installer from Settings => Apps removes everything else.
Requirements: Xposed Framework and XPrivacy (must be the backported ones)and rooted gingerbread device.

Way to install
1. Install the apk's in the device.
2. Enter in Xposed framework
3. Enter "framework"
4. Select install and after it installs, reboot.
5. Go to modules. Tick XPrivacy box and reboot.
6. Now XPrivacy is set! Good to go.

But i saw there's not only this module compatible. I tried one for CRT effect, but it was a disabler of it. It did installed, though.

Confirmed not to work modules:
GravityBox
MoDaCo toolkit
XHalo module
AppSettings
XBlastTools

Confirmed to be working
XPrivacy (ported alongside with Xposed)
CRT disabler (inutile for us)
XVolume (thanks, Sniper Killer!)
App Settings (thanks, Xicor Yagami!)
Xposed Additions (Thanks, Envy-X!)
Xposed Statusbar text
KitKat music lockscreen
NetworkSpeedIndicator
Physical Button Music Control
CustomShare
Lockscreen Disabler
Notify Clean
BootManager
ReceiverStop
Guys, please help this thread reporting modules, working or not. This could also be the discussion thread for Ace-i's Xposed Framework.

Reserved for modules
I think anybody who confirms a module to be working should provide links to them too, it would be very helpful.

It's easy

Any module seeking to do something that was impossible before won't work

Like

CRT (Needs patched libs) Won't work
Tablet UI (There is no Tablet UI mod in Gingerbread) Won't work
Per App Settings (DPI changer) May work
Icon Themer - Great chance of working
Status Bar color changer - Great chance of working
Clock color Changer - Great chance of working

And I also assure you that no module (should) work without backporting (as XPrivacy was) IMO

So it would be pointless to try until they are ported

Xposed Additions

Xposed Additions works, except for the remapping buttons function. I wonder, if just changing the minimum sdk in some of the module may make some of them work, that won't now.
