Step 2 : Reboot into Recovery Mode.
Well, it was already said that it requires access to root, so if you are not having a rooted Phone then do root your Phone and then reboot into recovery mode.

Step 3 : Flash Xposed-Arm ZIP File Downloaded from above link.
After transferring the downloaded files into your Phone’s internal storage or SD Card storage and rebooting into recovery mode, depending on the recovery installed, the options would change. So the basic steps would be clicking on “Install Zip” and selecting “Xposed-Arm.zip” and installing it. the Flashing process would begin and within some time the “Xposed ARM” would be flashed to your Smartphone, once it completes flashing the Phone would reboot or you can reboot it manually (once it gets flashed)
Step 4 : Install “Xposed Installer_3.0 Alpha APK File”
Once you install the Xposed ARM file from the recovery and reboot the Phone to normal mode, go to the File manager and install the “Xposed Installer 3.0 APK File” like you install any normal android app manually. So that’s it you’ve successfully installed the Xposed Framework in a Phone operating on Android Lollipop.
Since this is an Alpha version of the Xposed Framework, you might face some issues, in case you face some do post out here so that we can work on it and find a solution to the problem being faced.
