One of the major reasons why people (including me) root their phones is because of the Xposed Framework. It is insanely powerful, yet, so simple to install and use. Any type of customization you can probably imagine is probably already available through the Xposed Framework. After a long wait, Xposed is finally available for Android Nougat devices; both the 7.0 and 7.1.1 versions. It is very important to note that this not the official version from the Original Developer rovo89. The team behind Purify OS Custom ROM has taken upon this task of porting the Xposed Framework to the latest Android version.

This article is continuously updated as support for more modules are added with every update for Xposed Framework for Nougat. Do come back for more!
Xposed Modules for Android Nougat
Below is a list of all the Xposed Modules that work properly on the Android Nougat 7.0 and 7.1.1 devices:
MinMinGuard can completely remove both the ads inside apps and the empty space caused by those ads.

MinMinGuard successfully removes that black space, which extends the app window and makes your user-experience better!

8. NSFW Gboard
Google’s Gboard won’t let you search for NSFW GIFs, but this Xposed module changes that.
This module is based on MohammadAG’s Instagram Downloader that is no longer supported. On Marshmallow devices, please enable storage access to Instagram (Setting -> Apps -> Instagram -> Permissions).
10. Power Nap
Power Nap for Xposed is the best app for saving battery. When your screen is off, Power Nap maximizes your device’s deep sleep time by stopping services, alarms and wakelocks from waking the device when the screen is off. This means you can leave Wi-Fi/data on and still get the notifications from apps you have whitelisted, while all others are unable to wake up your device, leading to an increase in your battery life.
