Android Basics: How to Activate a Newly-Installed Xposed Module
The Xposed Framework is a very powerful platform on top of which smaller modules can run to make changes to the Android system. Installing modules is the same as it is with sideloading any Android app, but afterwards, you'll need to activate the module and reboot your device.
After installing an Xposed module, you'll receive a notification from Xposed informing you that the module hasn't been activated yet and that a reboot is needed. Depending on your device, this notification may or may not include a button that makes activating your newly-installed module incredibly easy.
If you're one of the lucky folks who have this "Activate and Reboot" button on their post-installation Xposed notification, simply tap this button and Xposed will handle the rest for you.
If the notification doesn't have such a button on your device, activating the module is still pretty easy. To begin, simply tap the notification, and you'll be taken directly to the Modules section of your Xposed Installer app.
From here, tick the box next to the newly-installed module, then use the drop menu at the top of the screen to head to the Framework section of your Xposed Installer app.
On this next menu, simply tap either "Soft reboot" or "Reboot" to finalize your work.
