If you are looking for a way to flash Xposed Framework on Galaxy Note 8 running Android Oreo, you have spotted the right place.Xposed Framework

Xposed Framework is capable of turning your stock ROM into a custom ROM without actually flashing one. The Xposed Framework has thousands of modules which require root access to work on a phone. For the past few years, Xposed Framework has almost killed the need of flashing a custom ROM on Android smartphones. So, if you are the kind of user who doesn’t want to flash a custom ROM and still wants all things custom, Xposed Framework is your choice to go with.

To flash Xposed on your Galaxy Note 8, you need a custom recovery and the root access. The custom recovery will be used to flash the Xposed Framework on the phone. After installing Xposed Framework, you will install the Xposed application which displays all the modules and also allows the users to install them. From the Xposed application, which is sort of a manager, you can choose whatever module you want to install. These modules require root access to run properly.

There have been thousands of modules developed for Xposed to date. When it comes to picking up a few useful modules, you will find Gravity Box, Greenify, Youtube Background and some other similar modules on top. So, if you are already tired of your Android Oreo-powered Note 8, it’s time to add a few colours to it. Follow the steps below to start customising your Note 8 with the help of Xposed Framework now.
