Instructions for installing Magisk, edXposed and KMod FWA on Android 8.0+


- Version 2.8.1 (Stable version):


MD5: fbcb3fb3e33b2ee2fbae75c7c1378fd8


Change Log:

Known issues:
  • The customization is not applied correctly in the Settings section.
  • The circle of FAB button on the main screen doesn't apply color customization.


As I communicated a long time ago, now the Hooks update system (now called libraries) will not continue to update automatically. Updates will now be made on each version independently, and there will be no updates for all versions.

To update the libraries, you must enter the Updates section and click on the Update libraries option. At the moment, there will only be libraries for stable versions and beta versions published on weekends, however, in the link published below, I will publish all available versions of libraries in each version of KMod FWA.

List of available libraries:

Download Themes:

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.

Download from the index of themes

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:

  1. Log in to WhatsApp.
  2. Enter a contact's chat.
  3. You are inside WhatsApp.
  4. 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.
A: See this post for more information:


Looking for volunteers to translate the module into different languages, to publish in the next update.. Interested send me private messages.

  • English
  • Arab
