Update: Xposed Framework V90 Beta 3 and beta 2 now available for download with more stability and bug fixes. The beta 3 now adds compatibility with Samsung Experience 9.0 Oreo ROMS. Google recently released latest Android 8.1 Oreo for its stunning Pixel and Nexus series phones. Some of the other Android manufacturers also pushed the newer Oreo firmware update like Samsung Galaxy S8, OnePlus 5/5T, Asus, Essential Phones, etc. Moreover, a lot of custom ROM developers for Lineage OS 15.1, Resurrection remix, AOSP 8.1 Oreo port, Nitrogen OS are now deploying 8.1 Oreo builds for supported devices. This also includes the developer support for various frameworks like Xposed, Magisk, SuperSU, etc.
Xposed Framework has been updated to v90 for latest Android 8.0 Oreo and 8.1 Oreo. We have already seen the latest versions of Magisk 15.2 and SuperSU 2.82 SR5 getting the Oreo support. Today, the developer rovo89 deployed another update with Xposed v90 for Android 8.0 Oreo (SDK 26) and 8.1 Oreo (SDK 27). Both the firmware come with different SDK version and need a different file for each. This is a beta version. The stable version is coming and will be updated with the same links.
Xposed Framework and its modules bring various tweaking, customization, and personalization options over the stock Android system. This includes Amplify, Gravity Box, Ad blocker, Ads remover for YouTube, Kernel tweaker, up clock, down clock, etc. There are several modules to choose from. You can also install Xposed as a Magisk module. This only applies if the module states it is compatible with Oreo. So download and install Xposed Framework for Android Oreo.
Before you jump into installing the Xposed v90 onto your Oreo device, remember that it is in beta state. Hence, there may be some bugs. However, users have reported it to be working just fine. Not all Android phones have been tested and may not work with every configuration. You will need to test your own device by yourself. Simply download the latest Xposed v90 for Oreo and head over to the installation instructions from below.
What’s new with Xposed v90 Beta 3?
- Another small update for Xpsoed v90-beta3 adds compatibility for Samsung’s Oreo ROMs.
- Also back-ported some changes from Android P to Oreo 8.0, which were previously only ported to Oreo 8.1.
- This might fix some app crashes. .
- Also, downloads are finally available via HTTPS.
What’s new with Xposed v90 Beta 2?
There’s a new Xposed Installer v3.15 available in the first post now. It fixes two crashes and provides two new features:
- Fixed a crash in download list search on Oreo.
- Fixed a crash when sending log on Oreo.
- “Optimize apps now” menu item, will trigger “cmd package bg-dexopt-job”. It’s available since Oreo and will start the job that usually runs once per night if the device is charging. If you feel degraded performance after installing Xposed, it might be because all apps are running purely on JIT and interpreter. That’s because Xposed needs additional information to identify methods it has to invalidate, and that information will be determined during the next compilation. If you want that to happen now, use this new feature. It took about 20 minutes on my Pixel. For more background, see here.
- Detection if Verified Boot (dm-verity) is active. If yes, any changes to the system partition will be detected and you’ll end up in a boot loop. The detection might not be 100% perfect yet, so if you notice false positives or negatives, please report a bug along with the output of “adb shell getprop”.
I’m also publishing v90-beta2 and uninstaller 20180117, available via Xposed Installer. Remember that the first boot will take several minutes.
