This is another Xposed framework for Samsung Lollipop 5.0.x.

By using the products below, your device's warranty becomes void. This means that any software that is under protection of Samsung Knox stops working. An unintended impact on your device may occur as well, e.g. boot loop, bricked devices, etc. Please make sure that all the risks are on your own.

* Odex/Deodex supported
* No debloating is needed
* only for Samsung TouchWiz Lollipop 5.0.x SDK21 arm
- Users looking for Samsung 5.1 or higher (SDK22~) will want to go here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/xposed/unofficial-xposed-samsung-lollipop-t3180960
- arm64 is not supported. It is only for arm (32bit)

0. Back up with whatever method you prefer
1. Install the XposedInstaller application

2. Install the attached xposed-v***-samsung-5.0.x-sdk21-by-dkcldark-arm.zip file via recovery.

[Change Log]
* v87.1
1. Synced with the official Xposed v87 (details : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=69777118&postcount=40)
2. Applied wanam's XposedBridge change. It's not necessary at the moment but I decided to include it to make my installer more future-proof.
(details : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=62377738&postcount=2)

* v86.2 : Fixed where NovaLauncher crashed
* v86.1 : Merged 'requestConcurrentGC' version and 'non-requestConcurrentGC' version. Also deals with 'appStartupBegin' variant as well. All the checks are done at runtime.

I'm having the force close for Nova Launcher. Reverting back to v85 to see if it's back to normal...

edit: yup, 85.0 still works fine. VZW Galaxy S5 on 5.0.1 stock, rooted, BL unlocked

I am new to Xposed and I want to check it out. I have got a Galaxy S4 model i9505 with latest official stock ROM 5.0.1 unrooted.
Can someone tells me if the install procedure will work as is, and if this version is compatible with my phone?

Thank you
