Xposed Framework is one of the reasons why people want root access, since it allows us to change the app’s behavior without touching or altering the actual apk. Earlier, to acquire additional feature we have to modify the actual app, but with Xposed we can get it done in seconds by installing a module. And the good news is, Xposed is now compatible with the Amazon Fire 7″ (2015).
Once we managed to install Xposed Framework, we can start try some of the modules that have various features. You need to know, not all Xposed modules work for the Amazon Fire 7″ (5th Gen.), because some modules developed specifically for a specific manufacturer stock firmware or AOSP based ROM. While Amazon tablet has its own Operating System named Fire OS, and all the new 2015 released Fire tablet loaded with Fire OS 5 which based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.
Several popular Xposed modules such as GravityBox LP reportedly working on this tablet, although not all features are compatible. It is very reasonable, considering the GravityBox LP is designed to run on devices with AOSP ROM, not for highly modified Android like Amazon Fire OS. Therefore, you are strongly advised to be careful in choosing a module, installing an incompatible module might result in bootloop. You are also advised to have Xposed uninstaller package as a precaution, which could be used with the custom recovery.
Here are some Xposed working modules for 2015 Amazon Fire 7″ Tablet (5th Gen.) which can be obtained from xposed repository or from Google Play Store. Tested by several xda users, however, your mileage may vary.
- GravityBox (not all features tested)
- Obb on SD
A working modules for the Amazon Fire is certainly not just limited to the above list, you can try the others, but remember you must remain cautious.
