I have xposed running on my Nexus 5 lollipop 5.0.1.
After downloading and enabling a couple modules my phone is now stuck in a bootloop.
I tried clearing dalvik and cache it didn't help.

Is it possible to disable xposed from recovery?

EDIT: Solved.

Boot into Recovery (Power + Volume Down)
TWRP > Advanced > Terminal command
Create a file /data/data/de.robv.android.xposed.installer/conf/disabled, which causes Xposed to be bypassed:

Code:
touch /data/data/de.robv.android.xposed.installer/conf/disabled

Didn't work. Still stuck in bootloop.

It was between two modules. Can't remember the first one but the last one was XInstaller.

Anyway, got it solved using the below method:

Boot into Recovery (Power + Volume Down)

Create a file /data/data/de.robv.android.xposed.installer/conf/disabled, which causes Xposed to be bypassed as well:

XInstaller seems to be causing a few issues, and I don't think its the app itself but the apps it allows you to install instead. I had the same issue after installing xInstaller. But now that you figured this out maybe I can try a few other apps out like xstana which for somereason refuses to install on lollipop devices...

After disabling it I flashed the new xposed-arm-20150308.zip and installed XposedInstaller_3.0-alpha2.apk (I was on alpha1 previously)
Re-enabled xposed (deleted "disabled" file) and all is working fine now.

This thread definitely either needs to be made a sticky, or the contents needs to be in one of the already made sticky threads IMHO

Cheers

//edit

I tried this out on my phone to test (my xposed stuff is working just fine) but it doesn't seem to have disabled xposed at all?

Ex, app settings still functions (set my play store to be at 480 DPI and it's still opening in 480 DPI as it should...)

I made the necessary file you said with fx file manager, not through TWRP recovery though... I don't think it should make a difference though how I made the file, just that it's there.

Maybe my permissions on the file are messed up, I just thought of that..

//edit 2

Yup my perms were messed up, xposed is now disabled for me. Cheers for the info, now I know what to do when some shady looking module backfires on me lol

Exclamation
Just to report that the method failed on a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge (SM-G925F).

I created succesfully the disabled file, but I was still having bootloops.

So I thought I forgot to set the file to 755, but then TWRP told me:
Code:
Updating partition details...
...done
E: Resource (font)-(fixes) failed to load
Kernel does not have support for reading SELinux contexts.
MTP Enabled
Now I hope to fix everything by reflashing the firmware again...

After successfully disabling xposed in order to get the device to boot, how do we reenable it? Because after uninstalling the module which caused the problem the framework is "not active". A reboot did not work.
