Work on Xposed Framework for Android 7.0 Nougat ‘Still Going On’

Xposed Framework

In a quick update posted on the official Xposed framework thread over at XDA, developer rovo89 has said that he is working on adding Nougat support to the framework. 

His update does not provide any details whatsoever about how long we have to wait to see an official release of Xposed framework for Nougat, but considering he did not post about any issues on porting the framework to Android 7.0, it seems that he is making steady progress.

Just in case you’re wondering, work on Nougat support is still going on, please be patient.

While not confirmed, it is likely that we will see an official or unofficial release of Xposed framework for Nougat before the end of this year.

Do remember that even when Xposed for Nougat is released, almost all modules for the framework will have to be updated to make them compatible with the new version of Android.

Update: rovo89 has provided a more detailed update on his progress on Xposed for Nougat.

Current status for Nougat: Hooks are generally working now. However, they’re still unreliable for inlined methods and when JIT is used (which is often the case). I had given a few technical insights here. I’m currently thinking about the different situations that need to be handled and I create unit tests for them. Then I need to fix those which are failing or even crashing the device – ideally without recompiling the whole ROM like in previous versions. Not sure if the latter is possible though.
