And if your device is running on x86 use x86.zip
2. Check your android version.
Second things are to know about what android version your phone is having. To know this Go to phone settings - about - Android version. You will see android version listed there. However this is a very simple task, it can happen that you already know it.

- If you have a updated lollipop 5.1.1 you will need to download and flash xposed sdk22.
- And if you are running on beautiful maverick called marshmallow (android 6.0) you are going to use xposed sdk23
For quick reference.
Android 5 = SDK21
Android 5.1 = SDK22
Android 6.0 = SDK23

Example 2. I have arm CPU and my android version is lollipop 5.0 so I'm going flash sdk21 arm.zip.
