Before Magisk bought a major landscape change in the rooting community, we had the Xposed Framework. It provided tons of modules that completely overhauled the device’s software. Along with SuperSu, it ruled the open-source environment, until Magisk arrived. What Magisk did was, apart from providing various modules it also added the rooting capabilities. Slowly but surely, it took away the limelight from Xposed.
But it seems that this entire notion was wrong, and in fact, Xposed is well alive and kicking. All thanks to the developer solohsu, we might once again be able to use the Xposed Framework on Android Pie devices. He was able to port it on the Riru Platform ( created by RikkaW). With this platform combination, Xposed has set foot in a new era.
