Xposed Framework For Android Marshmallow Getting Closer

October 26, 2015 - Written By John Anon

When it comes to those who like to root their devices, there are some staple apps, features and services that most, if not, all, rooted device owners will be instantly using. Of course, one of which will be SuperSU which is largely responsible for rooting a device. Likewise, installing TWRP is also pretty much guaranteed, as this is one of the features which will allow a rooted user the ability to flash other ROMs, features and also provide a decent level of backing up and securing your data. Then there’s the likes of the Xposed framework. Although, this is not a ‘must-have’ in terms of a rooted device (as you can live without it), too many rooted users, it still is a must-have feature as the Xposed Framework is one of the best rooter’s toolkits that you can find.

Well, with Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) now beginning to see its distribution down to smartphones, the race will be on for the likes of TWRP, SuperSU and Xposed to all increase their respective compatibility to include Marshmallow. This was a massive undertaking by the developers last year with the launch of Android 5.0 (Lollipop), and once again, it is likely to be a big undertaking this time around, due to all the emphasis on security and encryption that comes with Marshmallow. In terms of TWRP, the folks have been hard at work and have already released support for the likes of the Nexus 5X which does come running on Android 6.0. While in terms of SuperSU, that has also recently seen activity with a beta version becoming available for those running an Android 6.0 build on their device.

Now, in terms of Xposed, rovo89 has sent out a new statement detailing that the process of adding Marshmallow support is going well, which will be good news for those waiting on compatibility to arrive. However, with the latest update, rovo89 does not provide any firm details on when it will be available and instead just wants to inform the community that it is going well and progress is being made. As such, it does seem that it is still some time away. After all, it was not until about February of this year when the support for Lollipop became officially available.
