Ok here it is: Xposed for the new @OvrDriVE root method. I have not tested method on VZW as i do not have their phone, but this still should being this is a Samsung Note 7.

As with any custom rom's, root, add-on's, you assume all risks with modding your phone. You have been warned.

Make sure you read all of my directions below, before you start posting errors with the install. Worst case you just have to start over with @OvrDriVE s installation.


Here is the way you can install xposed on your phone after you have root. I in no way have made any files or apks, I am just posting ways you get this loaded on your phone.

Please Thank the devolopers and others that have made all these files and apks possible..


The way is to install Xposed framework via FlashFire:

1. Download FlashFire, You can get it from the app store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.chainfire.flash&hl=en

2. Download the Xposed Installer Apk: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=58828974&postcount=1&nocache=1&z=3764362361329836

3. Download the Xposed Framework zip. <<< this is the file that you will be flashing via FlashFire: Xposed Framework.zip

4. Once you have all the files downloaded onto you computer/phone: you are ready to start. If you have'nt all ready copied all the files to your phone storage, do so now. If you did then you can move on to the #5.

5. Open FlashFire on your phone. Once it is loaded and open, click on circle with + button on the bottom right of the screen.
Then Click on Flash ZIP or OTA button.
Now select the xposed framework zip that you downloaded from #3.
Next you click the check mark on the top right of
the screen( do not change any of boxes on the left of the screen.<<< You Have Been Warned!!!!! .
Next scroll to the bottom of the screen and click the left button (flash button w the lighting bolt)
Sit back and watch FlashFire do its magic..

6. After #5 completes, you can now install the xposed installer apk from #2. Once installed open and check framework in the app and you should have this : Xposed framework version 86.1 (custom build by wanam / 2016709 is active.

7. Now go to Download in the xposed installer and download: Wanam Xposed 1.3.0 Made for Samsung Android 5 and 6 Roms by Wanam or you can download xTouchwiz by Wanam..

8. Once you downloaded it, install it, and then in the Xposed installer app- modules- you select the the app in #7 by placing a checkmark in the box on the right to activiate the modules.

9. Reboot your phone to activate the module.

10. Enjoy your efforts and customizing your phone:

Confirmed working on my VZW Note 7 running PH1 firmware, rooted using @OvrDriVE's method.

Edit: for clarification, I used the second method (flashfire) to do this, and it worked like a charm.

Side note, you won't find Wanam Xposed 1.3.0 Made for Samsung Android 5 and 6 Roms by Wanam on xposed, it doesn't exist. Don't use Wanam Xposed either, it's been discontinued in favor of xTouchWiz. I've tested it myself and it works great, it's made by the same developer.

Ok, 1.3.0 does exist on xposed app, and yes you can use xTouchwiz by wanam as well, both are good, xtouchwiz has alot of stuff removed that will not work with the new firmware but he also removed alot of stuff that he didnt think was needed, so you can try both out and you can decide what you want to use..I have used both and they both work.. Now unfortunately Wanam will not be updating any of these, but is only providing support only..

Apologies, looking at that module and it's description (saying it was only for lolipop) I figuredit wouldn't be good to install on 6.0.
I also went to it's dev page on XDA and it was stated that the module is no longer being supported.

So really this works just like normal except using Flashfire. I got scared thinking I would white knuckle it like the root. Any other module issues? Using several of them? I like some of the small play store tweaks and battery saving modules on other phones, I know wanam has the only safe 'do everything gravity box for touchwiz' stuff.

Im not sure why, but after installing this to my note 7, The "Android is optimizing # of #" comes up and it optimizes 1 app only... It won't go away and everytime I reboot It happens. I sort of want xposed, but if this is happening everytime I can just go without it....

It stays on or you just get the normal startup type message that lasts for a few seconds? Does it affect anything else? Seems minor.

Were you replying to me? It does 1 of 1 every boot. Its more annoying than anything really. Not worth the trouble. And if I uninstall it, the optimizing screen goes away. No one else is complaining about it so its just my problem.

So what xposed apps have been testing and what are all of you using? I haven't used xposed in a couple of years and the modules I liked seem outdated, and I'm afraid to use them. A lot of them say they are only for AOSP and to not use on Samsung and other modified forks. I was surprised at the amount of modules which were totally outdated, I'd say at least half or more were from 1-2 years ago or longer since they were last updated.

Biff I'm getting that issue as well. The first reboot it optimized all 359 of my apps, but now on every reboot it optimizes just 1 of 1 app, only takes a few seconds but it is annoying. I'm finding little utility in xposed anyhow so am not sure I'm going to bother keeping it. I didn't find the oldies but goodies like wanam, something to turn off the volume nag if too high, gravity box was very explicit not to use on Samsung, etc.

Yea I don't really seem to use anything is xposed anyways. The 1 of 1 thing is quite annoying! No one else seems to think that! I think im just gonna pass on installing this for a while..

I'm not getting the constant optimization like you guys. I did get all at once after adding it.

I'm using Amplify, GlobalS-health, Greenify, Play Store Changelog, XHangouts and Wanam's XTouchwiz, though very lightly on the last.

Optimizing apps on reboot went away after 4 or 5 reboots. Enjoying xposed but still hesitant to install modules.

Really happy about this work so far. Great job and good guidance!

Ran a quick "safe" test with xTouchWiz by moving the clock from default (right) to the left side. It worked (after phone restart).

Excited, I tried System/Disable tether provisioning... Restarted the phone. Works.

Awesome.

I also have the "Optimizing 1 of 1" issue previously mentioned, but it's not often I reboot, so not too worried. Wondering if there is a way to get a log for which file is being optimized. Always good to know what's happening.

Atleast I know its xposed that is causing this... I believe there is a way to get logs, but I am unsure how to do this or where to get it... I rarely reboot as well, but its just bothersome to see it doinh that.

Awesome module I discovered while trying to figure out how to get rid of the ugly roaming triangle this root puts on the signal bars. It's called Flat Style Bar Indicators, some free stuff and a very nominal cost for full version. I also see that the root took away the carrier name, which can be added back with this module. You can change any aspect of the status bar, it's very cool. I made my signal bars look like an iPhone, much easier and clearer to read.

Okay, I was skeptical at first, but realized I need to fly soon and wanted to stimulate the green battery icon in case security thinks this is a recalled Note 7. There's been so much press about the green icon meaning the phone is safe that *not* seeing one may have folks thinking it's not...

Results with this module exceeded my expectations. And no more voLTE...

Edit: Turns out this didn't permanently resolve the issue where VoLTE appears. It comes back and will linger until reboot. We'll need a real fix, either by a flashable zip or need/updated Xposed module.

    Hey guys. Did anyone else notice the phone get slower when you installed xposed?

    I only put in the modules discussed in the forum but my phone was slowing way down and some vr games stopped working entirely. I returned to a pre xposed backup and now Im back up to full speed. I wonder if maybe it was a battery saving feature or something.

    I'm just wondering if anyone else is seeing this. I would love to narrow it down so that I can reinstall and use exposed again.

    I may try to reinstall and test myself again later. I just don't have time now and I was wondering about everyone else's experience.

    Thanks in advance all.

    Xposed slowed me down as well, although I suspect that it's wanam modules slowing it down. I reinstalled and only have flatbar style and minminguard installed and running great.
