Xposed Framework Backported to Gingerbread
Posted October 3, 2013 at 05:00 pm by Will Verduzco
We’ve talked a considerable amount about XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s powerful Xposed Framework (thread). We’ve also extensively covered various modules that make use of the framework to deliver various tweaks and modifications simply and easily.
Naturally, one of the greatest features of Xposed is that it allows for these modifications to be performed at runtime and in a device- and firmware-agnostic manner. In other words, it doesn’t matter what device or ROM you have, as long as has the latest version of Xposed Framework installed. There is a catch, however. In order to install the (official) framework, you have to have Android 4.0 or later. Luckily, here at XDA when one user sees adversity, another sees opportunity. As such, XDA Forum Member liudongmiao has backported the Xposed Framework all the way back to API 10 (Gingerbread).
It is important to keep in mind that this is far from official, so there may be various incompatibilities. That said, liudongmiao is continually updating his work to keep pace with rovo89’s official releases. As such, it has now been updated to version 2.2.
If you’ve been looking to get in on the Xposed action on your Gingerbread device, head over to the original post.
