Xposed on Lollipop has been a iffy matter for a long time with many useful modules being MIA since google’s latest release. However the advent of Gravity Box is big news because this can mean that Xposed devs are slowly adapting this new platform and coding structure that has been set forth in Google’s latest iteration of Android, particularly in the way the root permissions to the file system are being handled. So without further ado, let’s see what gravity box has to offer and how we can get it to work on your Android Lollipop device!

- This module is designed to run on vanilla or close-to-vanilla Android 5 (AOSP)
- It supports “Google devices” like Nexus, HTC One Google play edition, and others running vanilla Android
- Also supports Motorola Moto G Dual SIM running stock Lollipop
- Samsung Touchwiz, HTC Sense, MIUI, LeWa, Xperia, Lenovo, etc. are NOT supported. It is not guaranteed this module will work on these at all so try at your own risk. This module is simply too complex to support all kind of ROM brands that were vastly modified by vendors.
- DO NOT USE WITH CUSTOM ROMS LIKE CM, AOSPA, ROOTBOX, AOKP, SLIM, CATACLYSM, OMNI AND THEIR OTHER CLONES… IT MAKES NO SENSE AND CAN CAUSE CONFLICTS AND UNEXPECTED BEHAVIOR.
To use this module, your phone must follow these conditions,
- You should have a device running Android 5 that’s based on AOSP Android.
- Your phone must be rooted (XposedInstaller requires root to be able to install framework into system)
- You should have a working custom recovery allowing you to make a backup before installing Xposed framework. This is very important in case you mess anything up!
- You can get the GarvityBox apk from here.
Move the downloaded GravityBox apk, rename it to GravityBox.apk and install it.
Alternatively, you can download the latest GravityBox directly from Xposed Installer (search for GravityBox [LP] module).
Make sure GravityBox app is installed into internal memory. If it was installed into phone storage or external storage,
move it into the internal memory first (applies only to devices having additional or external storage)
Run Xposed installer, go to Modules menu and activate GravityBox by checking the checkbox
Launch GravityBox from app drawer or from Xposed installer and set options as desired/
