Introduction
So the Android O preview brings navbar customizations to SystemUI Tuner. I had an idea to make it better and also available for Android N!

Today I'll be introducing navbar customization for Android N, WITHOUT ROOT.

Features
- Add custom buttons to your navigation bar
- Customizable navbar layout
- Tasker integration for contextual navbar
- Easy to setup
- No root or xposed required

Compatibility
- Not working on ResurrectionRemix, Beanstalk, AospExtended or anything that uses DirtyUnicorns smartbar (Need testers)
- Not working on Touchwiz (S8 is partially supported), EMUI, LG UX
- Working on Android 7, 7.1, O preview
- Working on LinageOS
- Working on Nexus devices
- Working on Sony Xperia devices

So After opting-in to the beta test there seems to be a regional restriction.
I even tried using opera vpn but still says not available. Is it working on oneplus3 OOS?

I'm guessing it's this:

adb shell pm grant xyz.paphonb.systemuituner android.permission.WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS

Thanks for making this app, OP. Check out my series of tutorials for potential uses of this: https://www.xda-developers.com/tag/android-o/

As for how to add custom icons, I figured it out here: https://www.xda-developers.com/how-t...-in-android-o/ and OP implemented it in his app

That's weird. I have all the countries ticked.
Can you try again? I'll try removing the beta restriction.
