One of the major reasons why traditional installation methods did not work for Pixel 2 duo is because it follows A/B Partition system. You cannot install Xposed by flashing via TWRP or by installing the zip via Magisk Manager. Both methods will fail because Pixel 2’s internals are laid out a little differently than other Android devices we have seen so far.

Steps to Install Xposed Framework on Pixel 2 [XL]

  1. Make sure you have downloaded the necessary Xposed Installer Zip file from the downloads section above.
  2. Download and install the Xposed Installer v3.1.4 on your Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL: Download Xposed Installer v3.1.4.apk
  3. After installing the app, simply open it one and close it.
  4. Open a File Explorer of your choice and go to the following location:
    /storage/emulated/0/Android/data/de.robv.android.xposed.installer/cache/downloads/framework

    Or the above could also be interpreted as:

    /INTERNAL STORAGE/Android/data/de.robv.android.xposed.installer/cache/downloads/framework

    You will most probably have the above folder structure on your device. If not, create it. Most probably you might need to create the ‘downloads‘ and ‘framework‘ folder;  others would already be in place.

  5. Copy the downloaded Xposed Framework zip file inside the ‘framework‘ folder [the location mentioned in the above step].
  6. Open the Xposed Installer app > Tap on the ‘Settings‘ icon in the top right corner and select the ‘Show outdated versions‘ checkbox.Xposed-for-pixel-2
  7. Close the app and re-open it again.
  8. After re-launching the installer, click on the installer and select ‘install‘.

  2. Tried this, now my phone just hangs on the G boot…given it 30 minutes. Any suggestions on how to fix it?

    • I am assuming that, by G boot you mean the boot logo screen. 30 Minutes is too long of a wait. Should not take more than 5 minutes (at worst). Did you place the files in this directory: INTERNAL STORAGE/Android/data/de.robv.android.xposed.installer/cache/downloads/framework ? It may not be available, you need to create it.Did you create the folder?

      • You’re right, it wasn’t there, but I did create it.
        I finally fixed it by using TWRP to reinstall the image and wiping the cache. Phone is back up, with all my data in place…Time to make a backup before trying again.
