If you enable or update an Xposed module and get stuck in a boot-loop, your options are limited. You basically just have access to recovery. I got stuck in this situation and had trouble finding out how to disable Xposed via recovery.

To disable Xposed completely from recovery,
  • Boot into custom recovery
  • Go to File Manager (usually under Advanced)
  • Navigate to /data/data/de.robv.android.xposed.installer/conf/modules.list
  • Delete modules.list
  • Reboot System

The deleted file simply controls which Xposed modules are loaded on startup. Deleting the file disables all Xposed modules.

After you reboot, all of your Xposed tweaks will be disabled. To re-enable Xposed modules, simply start up the Xposed Installer app. Then go to modules and make any change. This will re-create the modules.list file that you deleted in recovery.

There might be quite a lot of people who already know but this is for the benefit of those who don't know and end up wiping data and flashing everything from scratch.

A sensible flasher would download the xposed remover zip that's in the same op before installing.

You are suggesting to remove complete xposed framework instead of just disabling and enabling modules.

This doesn't work for me. I go to advanced, then file manager, then to the data folder, but then my only option is "up a level". I can't select more folders within the data folder.

This is not a problem when navigating on the sd card, only when navigating on the root of the phone.

Is the data partition mounted (select it under "Mount")?

I got stuck too, so uninstalled xposed.
Now, when I look in xposed, I cannot disable the modules (because they all say they need an updates XposedBridge). The checkboxes are disabled, so I cannot remove a specific module to test if that module was the culprit.

How can I disable some xposed modules, then reinstall xposed?
