Xposed Module is a popular module for the smartphone enthusiasts who like to root their smartphone and customize the smartphone to our liking. Talking about Xposed Installer and the Xposed Module, we have known that the development of the famous Xposed Module came to a standstill last year as the developer behind Xposed was caught up in other commitments which delayed the release of Xposed for Android Nougat which came just before the release of Android Oreo, eventually. However, the developer behind Xposed has been very active ever since and we have seen that the Xposed Module for Android Oreo has already been released.
Now, we have already known that there is another alternative for Xposed which was released a few years ago and has become popular ever since. However, if you don’t know about Magisk then we will give you a brief overview of Magisk and the difference between Xposed. Now, the Xposed Module is a system-dependent method of customization which means that you will have to install the Xposed Module from your recovery which should be a custom recovery like TWRP. This means that you will have to unlock bootloader and install TWRP recovery in order to install Xposed Module.
However, Magisk, which is the best alternative to Xposed can be installed even on the Stock Recovery which means that it is a system-less method of customization and thus, installing Magisk on your smartphone will have no harms or effects which can not be guaranteed in the case of Xposed Module. Thus, people have been going towards Magisk Installer from Xposed due to its compatibility with Stock Recovery as well as the systemless approach.
Also, as we mentioned above, Xposed Module developer, famously known as rovo89 on XDA Forums, released the Xposed Module for Android Oreo along with the source code for the developers to port the Module. Thus, the developer of Magisk, topjohnwu, has released the Systemless version of Xposed which is compatible with Android 8.0 Oreo. Now, it is worth noting that this is not the first time that the systemless Xposed version has been released by the developer of Magisk but it is appreciable as it was released in just a few days after the official release of Xposed for Android Oreo.
Talking about Systemless Xposed for Android Oreo and its features, it should be noted that this module is present in Magisk Installer so you will need to have Magisk Installer in order to get Systemless Xposed for your device running Android Oreo and further.
You should also note that installing Systemless Xposed on your device will pass SafetyNet which will help to use applications like Android Pay, Samsung Pay and other banking applications that currently restrict access if you have a rooted device
