@Krowne Hope you are doing well. It's refreshing to see a new version of KMOD. Thank you.Version 2.8.3 (09-02-2021 - From WhatsApp 126.96.36.199):
Required base 188.8.131.52 or higher.Fixed a bug that prevented opening WhatsApp 184.108.40.206.Fixed other bugs.
First of all, note that whenever you install an update of any Xposed module, you must have EdXposed Manager open and then install the module with EdXposed Manager open. After accessing the list of modules, and disable KMod FWA. Reboot the device (never software reboot), then activate KMod FWA and reboot. If your device has Android 8.0+, please enable permissive SELinux mode from KMod settings and reboot. If after restarting you still don't work KMod FWA, open it and try to enter WhatsApp, to check if now the configuration works.So what i need to do to use xmod ? I tryed many ways but not Work.
PLZ somone explain step by step. Thanks
@Krowne Hope you are doing well. It's refreshing to see a new version of KMOD. Thank you.
I would like to report a bug, I am on the latest KMod 2.8.3 and Whatsapp Beta 220.127.116.11. Gallery is not opening on Whatsapp. It crashes. All other functions work fine even the privacy settings. I tried to clear cache of both KMod and Whatsapp. I even tried other compatible stable/beta apks of Whatsapp and also reinstalled. I did everything I could. Gallery isn't opening on Whatsapp. But I can still share media directly from Gallery to Whatsapp. If I disable KMod, Gallery opens on Whatsapp without any issue.
Is there any workaround or is it an isolated issue on my device, Samsung S8. I use HadesRom Android 10, Samsung OneUI 2.5. Latest Magisk and EdXposed.
Thanks again, Krowne.
It's strange, because in all this time, WhatsApp never closed when I opened the gallery. In addition, it is strange, because KMod never touches anything related to the gallery, except that it's something of the customization of the layouts of that section, which doesn't detect an ID correctly, although I did it so long ago, that I don't remember if that there is in that part any customization. However, if you could provide me with a registry and the exact version of WhatsApp and its mobile architecture, I could try to investigate if I can buy a little time.I have the same issue since last year. I couldn't navigate through media, links and docs of any chats.
Just want to highlight that the release.zip package of the required Riru core version https://github.com/RikkaApps/Riru/releases/tag/v21.3 is no longer available. Perhaps can post a legit source here? I had to download from a questionable source.
PLZ Post all Links we need to use xmod. Links of correct Xposed Module, Manager, and Riru PLZ
Thanks. I used xmod since Long Time. First time not Work for me
They are in the previous post that I answered you.
You have the Magisk link to download, and once installed, EdXposed Manager is installed, however here you have the EdXposed Manager download link in case you want to download it.
Note: I recommend installing EdXposed Manager version 4.5.4 to be able to access the list of modules. Although on the main screen it says that EdXposed Framework is not installed, it will be installed.
With the exact versions I said, it should work flawlessly because I'm using it right now in Oreo.does this mean kmod still doesn't work with latest riru and edxposed? I have the same trouble as that dude above where It says I don't have xposed installed. I have tried doing the exact step as you mentioned above, no avail.
anyway, are you aware about LSPosed ? are you going to implement their work to kmod in some time?

Thanks for the info. Could you also try to provide me with a log of when it crashes?Whatsapp 18.104.22.168-210413003_minAPI16(arm64-v8a)-nodpi
Device: Samsung Galaxy S8 - Exynos - ARM 64-bit
ROM: HadesROM based on Android 10, OneUI 2.5
Kernel: Hades Kernel, SELinux Status: Permissive
EdXposed 0.4.6.4 (4563) YAHFA
Not only this version of Whatsapp, it happened with 2 other previous beta versions too.
My issue is only when I try to access Gallery from Whatsapp. ( i.e. Attaching a media directly to a chat on Whatsapp.)
When I share a media from Gallery to Whatsapp, no issues.
If I disable KMod Module, Gallery opens fine.
If you need any other info, please let me know.
I hope this gives you some clarity on the issue.
You are right with your logical reasoning, but it is also true that:With the exact versions I said, it should work flawlessly because I'm using it right now in Oreo.
I plan to make the module from scratch, with all the latest versions of everything, but not at the moment, because I don't have time. I have other jobs going on, and I don't have time for everything. And since KMod FWA works in the version I said, and many other older modules as well, I'm in no rush to start the project again.
I don't think it is compatible with LSPosed, because I am not going to adapt the module to a multitude of framewoks that are being released and that I am not going to use. If they are compatible with Xposed, then KMod FWA will be.
They don't seem to think about how many old modules worked perfectly, and they haven't been updated for years. And that now with the strange updates to Magisk and new Frameworks, now it has to be the modules that adapt to something that has worked for so many years?
Don't get me wrong, I'm not at all against updates, as you say they fix bugs or contain improvements. But since they do, what minimum to maintain the essence on which they have been working for years? At least on the Android versions that have been working so far. If Android 10 or 11 needs updating, as it doesn't work, then make the changes only for those versions, not for all the versions that have been working so far.You are right with your logical reasoning, but it is also true that:
1) frameworks updates, and maybe the creation of new frameworks too, are like KMod (or other modules) updates: for security or new features reason!
So, why shouldn't they update or innovate them?!
2) following your logical reasoning, all of us should stick to the now, unfortunately, outdated original Xposed framework (incompatible now, on newer Android version), without innovation and/or other features that following new technologies...I know that you are still on Oreo, and the creation of KMod module are yours, but....
PS: obviously you have your own life and it's difficult and/or you need time to interely rewrite, or update, the code; I understand this
Q: I installed an update, and KMod FWA is not recognized by Xposed.
A: This is usually normal on some devices.
Disable KMod FWA from the list of Xposed modules, perform a normal restart (not quick), enable KMod FWA again in the list of Xposed modules, and do a normal restart.
Sometimes, disable and enable KMod FWA the list of Xposed modules, and do a normal restart is sufficient.
Q: Why it doesn't work in some versions of WhatsApp?
A: This only works in official versions of WhatsApp higher than that specified in the requirements.
It may also be that your Android version doesn't have integrated customization, and that is the reason why there is no customization in WhatsApp.
Q: Installed and activated the module, why the changes do not apply to WhatsApp?
A: Maybe you have not successfully activated the module, deactivate, activate, and then restart of device (normal restart, not by software). You may also be using a version of WhatsApp not compatible with the module.
Q: Can't download themes from the cloud?
A: At the moment this option is not available, you can upload your themes to external and share servers.
Q: Where was it saved, or where should I save new themes to load them into KMod FWA?
A: Used to place their themes on your SD card or internal memory, in the /KMod/Themes route. Make sure the directory exists before placing, if doesn't exist, open the module for create directories.
Q: I have changed the application icon, and no changes are applied.
A: After changing the application icon you must restart your device. If it still doesn't change the icon, you may be using a launcher who does not support changing the application icon (such as Nova Launcher).
Q: I have updated KMod FWA and several options have stopped working.
A: If this happens, then go to KMod FWA Settings, select Delete cache, and press Apply changes in KMod FWA.
Q: I have activated the option to see a Toast of the people who connect and disconnect, but it does not work.
A: These notifications will only be displayed when:
- Log in to WhatsApp.
- Enter a contact's chat.
- You are inside WhatsApp.
- Do not keep the online status hidden.
When these four conditions are met, then you should see when the contacts you have entered into your chat are connected or disconnected.
If you comply with the four conditions, but leave WhatsApp, force the closure of the application or enter KMod FWA, you must repeat the four conditions to make it work again.
Q: I have problems related to privacy options.
