Finally got a good working new phone. Rooted and XPosed. Anyone any tips for good XPosed modules?22
The last time I tried to root my phone, every method failed. Today I said fuck it. Either I'll brick my device or it works but fuck not having root access on my own fucking device.
It worked! I've got Xposed (😍) back and can finally run a root firewall and XPrivacy again 😍54
TL;DR: My devices all hate me and I needed to fix them all.
My Devices really love me.
I rooted my smartphone (LG G5) just yesterday. Everything went fine. Installed TWRP, SuperSU and some nice Apps that utilize root.
Today I was on the go (at CeBIT) and already had the Xposed Installer App on my phone, but didn't attempt installing it yet because I needed my phone for Maps and Messaging and the app had given clear warning about the bricking-potential.
So to the end of the day I get bored, send my last important Messages, installed the Xposed Framework...
... aaaand got stuck in a boot loop.
So I got on my way back home (thanks God I remembered all the trains I needed to take). On the way I had a lot of fun in the Recovery-Terminal and figured that I should be able to fix my phone with no problem at home because the installer made backups (unlike myself).
Coming back home and my pc was still running (should've shut down after installing updates).
The pc behaved odd and I couldn't shut it down properly, which led to cutting the power.
And upon booting my pc I got a ... give it a guess ...
...a bootloop (technically the animation just never ended).
So after I fixed my phone with my spare laptop (just transferred and executed the uninstaller for xposed) I fixed my PC too, which had an old broken dkms-driver.
The odd thing about this is, that this isn't technically a rant. I guess you can confirm that you can't find any swear words.
Because I ENJOYED fixing the devices. I already fixed my pc a couple of times was well as unbricking my rooted phones, so there was fairly little research involved.
I guess I'm now offically twisted.
Now, after my smartphone backups are transferred, I'Ll take my device apart and replace the camera glass which arrived today (and hope, no pray, that my sim card does still work after that)...
... after I blatendly copied a meme to get more attention. 😉3
Me: *Trying to get the mobile banking app*
App: Nope, you have a rooted device
Me: *disables root access for apps and adb*
App: Nope, you have a rooted device
Me: *Maybe a xposed module would help*
Xposed: Nope, you have android nougat
Me: *Maybe there's some LineageOS marshmallow rom for my phone*
LineageOS: Nope, just android 7.1
Updating Oxygen OS....
1. WARNING: You will lose root.... OK
2. Fastboot TWRP
3, Install TWRP
4. Flash Magisk
6. Reinstall xposed from Magisk Installer
10. Re-enable Gravitybox in xposed
All done... did i do something wrong?7
So I have flashed and rooted (superSU) lineageOS 14.1 thats running android 7.1.2 on my phone and now I read that this will trip safetynet and won't allow things like netflix, banking apps or pokemon go - I tried to install netflix and it worked, tried pokemon go and after granting GPS via privacy guard it worked too.
But still it seems that if I would now flash Xposed (which I didn't find a good build for 7.1.2 yet anyway) that it would actually then start tripping those protections and that I should go with "systemless root" via magisk.
How does magisk compare to superSU? I loved root some years ago because of xprivacy, adfree etc. which are actually modifying system files as far as I know and I would like to go as "extreme" as denying camera usage to apps, but not making them crash, so just like xprivacy has fake IMEI I would like to show just a black image served to the app, I remember there was an xposed module doing that, but how far can magisk compare there?
And most importantly is there a way to just hide superSU and xposed from all those detections?4
The biggest dilemma for me has always been whether to switch my Android device to a sleek beautiful customisable AOSP based ROM or keep the stock ROM with all the amazing drivers and features, but with crappy bloatware.
Been sticking with CM/Lineage for years, amazing experience with Xposed & Viper4Android, but at expense of things like 4K and slow motion video and other stuff.
I recently came across the "Xposed framework" for Android and it seems really really interesting to me.
I use it to playback songs on YouTube (app) while accessing other apps (simple but helpful) . Anybody else with any modules/experience/knowledge about the same, do comment, I wanna know more about it.7
Got a new Amazon Kindle tablet for cheap, 30$. Any suggestions on what I should do with it? I am thinking of rooting and installing Xposed modules.1
Has anyone tired resurrection remix rom for Android? its really great with so many mods and customisations.
you don't even think of installing xposed mods, once you've got it.
just installed official nougat build for my oneplus one1
