Xposed Framework – Details:
Android has been a subject of customization and third-party modifications since the very start. Xposed framework, developed by XDA member rovo89, utilizes root to unlock a level of modification not seen before. Xposed allows you to modify system-end files and properties by using root.

Modules are available after the installation and you can manage them through the Xposed app.
