Download VirtualXposed & Use Xposed On Your Non-Root Android

A rooted Android smartphone is more powerful than regular Android smartphones and offers a chance for the device owner to customize it in both appearance and functionalities. Xposed is one of the most popular and frequently discussed things over the Android community for several years. Xposed is something like a platform that can be equipped with modules. Basically, it helps root users to fabricate their devices using installable mods( Modules) to have maximum performance and high-end appearance on the devices. Modules are hooked to the framework via Xposed Installer. VirtualXposed is also doing the same but in a different way without requiring root access, unlocked bootloader, or any other third-party modification on the devices.

How Does VirtualXposed Work

VirtualXposed is based on VirtualApp and epic (Refer Github for further clarification) and create virtual space. In that virtual environment, users are able to run the Xposed and install Xposed modules via the pre-installed Xposed Installer on the VirtualXposed.Unfortunately, VirtualXposed has some defects when compared to Xposed such as,

  • Inability to modify the Android system which prevents system-related modules from working properly on the virtual environment
  • Inability to support theming modules

  • Download VirtualXposed APK on your Android device (Currently supports Android 5.0 to Android 10.0)
  • Open VirtualXposed > Tap on the Drawer Button at the bottom of the home page(Or long click the screen)
  • Go to Settings > Settings > Advanced Settings > Install Google Play services

Final World

Some of the users are complaining about VirtualXposed for not working on Android 10. If you encounter such an issue try Exposed/TaiChi APK which is developed by the same developer, Weishu, which doesn’t need virtual space/MicroG to run Xposed modules.
