How to install Xposed on any Android Emulators running 5.1.1 and up

This is step by step to install xposed on any emulators running Lollipop and above. Thanks to Sean Post at Facebook for contributing guide for Memu emulator but I have improved the tutorials.

Note: Xposed is tested and working on any Emulator running 5.1.1 and above but does not work on Bluestacks 3N running 7.1.2. The ROM was corrupted after installing Xposed.

For Emulators running Kitkat 4.4.4 and below, please use old Xposed Installer

1. First you need to install SuperSU 2.79 apk. Download SuperSU 2.79 APK below

APK is signed to prevent updates from Play Store
Don't use SuperSU 2.82 because It no longer have ability to replace Superuser and you will get occupied error.

2. Install SU Binaries as normal and reboot in order for the Xposed installer to work.

3. Download xposed at Then select correct sdk version for your Android version, select x86 and grab latest xposed version.
List of SDK versions.
Oreo                   8.1.0                   SDK 27
Oreo                   8.0.0                   SDK 26
Nougat              7.1                       SDK 25
Nougat              7.0                       SDK 24
Marshmallow 6.0                       SDK 23
Lollipop             5.1                       SDK 22
Lollipop             5.0                       SDK 21

4. Save the downloaded file in your shared folder and unzip the xposed to a directory on /sdcard/xposed (internal), or whatever you prefer.

5. Goto the directory where you unzipped the xposed and you will see META-INF and system directory’s.


6. From this directory go into META-INF/com/google/android and in there is 4 files select all those files and copy them to the the /sdcard/xposed directory or the directory where you unzipped the xposed

7. Edit the file and on line 162 (or the last exit 1 command in the file add # before it so it reads # Exit 1.

8. Go into terminal emulator and type the following su (enter) then cd /sdcard/xposed (or directory where you chose to unzip) hit enter then type sh (then enter)
Ignore errors if you got any

9. Reboot Emulator

10. Go to and download Xposed Installer APK from the attachment and install it.

11. Now run that app. If it says that Xposed is not active like this


…reboot emulator again, and it should say xposed is active!

Tested on:
Memuplay running 5.1.1

Memuplay running 7.1.2

LDPlayer running 5.1.1

Nox running 5.1.1
