The Xposed Framework is a favorite of power users, as it allows modifications to apps and the System UI, making for a better user experience than what one would otherwise get on an un-modded ROM. Fans of the framework have been left hanging for months, though, with a host of factors leading to development being stuck on Marshmallow. A post on XDA-Developers has announced the release of Xposed for Nougat, however, and ROM modders can finally unclench in relief.

Android Oreo was released in August and that makes this a redundant development—only on paper, though, as Oreo boasts of just a 0.2% distribution at the moment, with Nougat clocking in at close to 18%. Marshmallow has the largest distribution with 32% and there's a chance that this, the lack of Xposed on Nougat, is a reason for that, with a few users being reluctant to use software without the modification abilities offered by the Xposed Framework. 

The Magisk Framework has been a worthy substitute—albeit without the plethora of options Xposed offers—and there's likely to be a divide between both, with users who have a preference for customizability opting for Xposed, and ones with the need for Magisk's Safetynet bypassing ability opting for it. That's all good, though; more options never hurt anyone.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
