hello,Help with xposed on rooted but stock MM that wont boot loop? tried installing directly onto my current lollipop installation via xposed installer app, and it bootlooped on me. so i restored my backup but id like to try with MM. Its time for a fresh start anyway and too many things have ended lollipop support
MM post is in this thread totally crossed out but the lollipop one is still open... does this mean there are 0 working versions or ways for MM, or can i use the same process as lollipop? Is there any workable way? or a link to a step by step guide? looking to ultimately use rootcloak
Remove the how to dirty flash xposed instructions, it's outdated and isn't recommended since twrp is available.
Also easier to use is osf mount & Linux ext2/3/4 read since you can mount the system.img as read/write after convert it. Disk internals only allows read access afaik.
Creating a modified system.img is rather going to give you a faster flash and boot time on first flash will be improved greatly
instead of using disk internals.
Also you should never dd a system while booted.
quick sum up how I did it
osf mount http://www.osforensics.com/tools/mount-disk-images.html (has option to read/write images)
linux disk internals: http://www.diskinternals.com/ (better option if you want to extract, should keep permissions/symlink
download http://sourceforge.net/projects/ext2fsd/ for adding read/write ext2/3/4 support in Windows
Download desired firmware
convert it with Simg2img.
open osfmount locate to the converted spare image (raw) and press open.
before clicking OK on the bottom (or pressing enter) make sure to untick read/only in order for you to edit the system.img
If you feel that the image size is too huge you can decrease the free space. I think osf mount can do it. but I resized it in Linux
you might need to write -f before the size I did it and it worked.
now it's time to sleep 2 am

There was a report of force closes after modifying SM-G903F ROM, earlier in the thread.
The force closes only happen if you delete "Google Web View", since the new play store overlay (and nearly every other app overlay) is based on that app (in app purchases, news etc.).
Don't touch Google Web View and everything will be fine.
