After waiting for almost one year, Xposed Framework have finally arrived for the Android Nougat based Custom ROMs. However this is an official version but still something is better than nothing right? Xposed framework was famous for the wide range of modules it had in store. It offered endless customization options and several other useful features.
It was not available for Nougat based ROMs till now but fortunately, some developer over at XDA has created a version of Xposed that supports most Nougat based ROMs and you can use a flashable zip file to install and use Xposed on your mobile.
Follow the below instructions to successfully install Xposed Framework on your Nougat based Custom ROM. Be sure to backup all your data and confirm that your phone has at least 50% of charge before you begin the process.

- Maintain 50-60% battery to prevent shutdown between the process.
