Wanam Xposed is an Xposed Module that allows you to add a lot of new features to your Samsung device. It works on Samsung devices with stock or stock-based custom firmwares and Android 4.2 or newer. It allows you to change the battery icon and colour, change the carrier label, enable call recording, disable automatic SMS to MMS conversion and a lot more. Wanam Xposed requires that Xposed Framework and Xposed Installer should already be installed. How? Read our tutorial: How to Install Xposed Framework on Android Devices.
Wanam Xposed makes it extremely easy to add or remove features, or make modifications. It also requires no flashing, and is easily reversible, which reduces the chances of bricking your device or needing to re-flash your ROM in case something goes wrong. Below, we’ll run you through what needs to be done in order to install Wanam Xposed on your Android phone or tablet.

Backup and Other Important Tips
The tutorial is on the next page, but first, please take a look at the following tips and important points you need to take care of. These are important, as we don’t want anyone losing their personal data or apps:
Always backup your important data that you might need after you install a new custom ROM, an official software update or anything else. Make a backup for just in case, you never know when anything might go wrong. See below for some tips on how to backup data:
- Download and keep Xposed-Disabler-Recovery.zip on your SD card. In the unlikely event that an Xposed Module prevents the phone from booting, you can flash this in recovery to regain access to your phone.
- Backup your Apps. How? –> How to Backup Android Apps.
- Backup your SMS messages. How? –> How to Backup/Restore SMS Messages.
- Backup Contacts, Gmail and Google Data. How? –> Sync with Google Sync.
- Backup Call History. How? –> How to Backup Call History.
- Backup WhatsApp Messages. How? –> How to Backup/Restore WhatsApp Messages.
- Backup APN Settings: GPRS, 3G, MMS Settings. How? Note down everything from: Settings > Wireless & Networks (More…) > Mobile networks > Access Point Names.
Samsung users can also back up data using Samsung KIES. If you backup data manually, you get more options what to choose from and it is very easy to move data across Android devices from different manufacturers, i.e moving Samsung Galaxy Note backup data to HTC One X.
If you already have a custom recovery (ClockworkMod, TWRP etc.) installed on your phone, we strongly recommend a backup using that as it creates a complete image of your existing phone set up.
A few more optional tips that you should remember:
1. Having problems connecting your Android phone to the computer? You need to enable USB debugging mode. See here: How to Enable USB Debugging — for Gingerbread, Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean.
2. Make sure your Android device is charged up to 80-85% battery level. This might help you: How to Check Battery Percentage. Why? Because, if your phone goes off suddenly while installing a custom ROM, flashing an official firmware update or installing mods etc. — your phone might get bricked or go dead permanently. No one wants that, right?
