Xposed Developer Rovo89 Answers Questions about ART Compatibility, Security, His Favorite Modules, and More in Reddit AMA!
If you haven’t already heard of XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s innovative Xposed Framework by now… Well, let’s just say that you have quite a bit of catching up to do. For the sake of the one or two of you reading this who haven’t yet experienced the framework’s awesomeness, Xposed essentially allows for various ROM-agnostic modifications to be performed at runtime—all without the need to ever decompile an APK.
With a platform as versatile and powerful as Xposed, many end users undoubtedly have lots of questions regarding both Xposed itself and the man behind the tool. Thankfully, rovo89 took a few hours out of his day yesterday to field a Reddit AMA with dozens of the community’s most pervasive questions.
The first question on almost everyone’s mind when it comes to Xposed is ART compatibility. As we already know, ART is scheduled to be the default runtime in the next version of Android. Luckily, rovo89 has already stated that ART support will come some time after this change is made. This was confirmed once again in the AMA.
Other questions asked concerned rovo89’s daily driver device (Nexus 5), whether he views Xposed as the replacement for custom ROMs (no), the framework’s name, security, his favorite modules, and comparisons between Xposed and Cydia.
