Hello, I could not install normal Xposed because the SDK version is 26 so I followed rova89's method to flash Xposed framework via recovery mode. I put this in cmd adb sideload and it installed correctly but after a reboot I cannot get out the Samsung loading screen. I can only go to the Downloading target... page with POWER+VOLUME DOWN+HOME and cannot boot into recovery mode (TWRP) anymore. I tried using Samsung Smart switch to initialize the device but it said SM-A520F cannot be initialized.

On Samsung A5, you cant take out the battery so I cant power off the phone either. I tried flashing TWRP again using odin and its still stuck on "SAMSUNG" loading page. Would be great if someone can help me with this. Thanks!
