I just can't wait for Google to upload an official Nougat image for our beloved Shamu, so I compiled this from the source.

V4 Flashable ZIP: https://mega.nz/#!qkpBHQwY!9fWIu36NC...rwNtDE13eJbocA

Working
As Shamu is a supported device, most things work well here:
  • Booting
  • Cellular (Calling, SMS and data)
  • Audio
  • Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth
  • GApps (see below)
  • Easter egg

Not working (?)
  • Not working on Verizon, as reported here
  • There are probably more

GApps
This build has dm-verity enabled. With the stock kernel, GApps will not show up, or a warning is displayed when booting. To solve this, either use a custom kernel or use FED-Patcher.

After installing OpenGApps, you may encounter force closes during the Setup Wizard.

Afterwards, to get rid of the Play Services force closes, go to Settings > Apps > Three dot menu > Show system and find Google Play Services. Enter the Permissions menu and grant all the permission it needs.

If apps requiring WebView force close, try excluding "WebviewGoogle" using the gapps-config config file. Details are available here.

Sources
This build was compiled on a modified tree. See the changelog for details.
Vendor blobs are downloaded from https://developers.google.com/androi.../blobs-preview

Changelog
Code:
V4 - NRD90U - That's what I call "Useless"
Flashable ZIP: https://mega.nz/#!qkpBHQwY!9fWIu36NC...rwNtDE13eJbocA
- Updated to 7.0.0_r6/NRD90U. So you want the shiny new build number? Here you go!

V3 - NRD90S
Flashable ZIP: https://mega.nz/#!35Zl0QyY!gUYM79Fs_...2RA1B3EosKlSqk
- Updated to 7.0.0_r4/NRD90S, with September's security updates.

V2 - NRD90M - A proper build... and more!
Flashable ZIP: https://mega.nz/#!f4wSnTDL!3ifsV_qC_...jTr_OObHRktC-M
- The product name is now "Nexus 6" instead of the default "AOSP on Shamu". The modified device tree is available here.
- The navigation bar editor is now accessible in System UI tuner. This is done by reverting this commit.
- I found out that I checked out the master branch for a handful of repositories when playing around. This is now fixed.
- This build was compiled with external/icu at 683055d (the current master). This is to get RIL working.
- Developers: See this post for a full explanation of the solution to get RIL working on 7.0.0_r1.

V1 - Initial build
Note: On a closer look, this is actually not a proper 7.0.0_r1 build. You should download V2 instead for a smoother experience.

Where did you get blobs from?
Kernel source?

Blobs are from https://developers.google.com/androi.../blobs-preview

And as said, I haven't changed the source in any way. Kernel source is available at https://android.googlesource.com/dev...droid-7.0.0_r1

Edit: Wow, didn't look too closely. That's the prebuilt kernel, and the corresponding source hasn't been uploaded yet.

Real question is, is this installed through factory recovery or can it be used through TWRP... Deff just tried TWRP and no success. will try flashing back to normal.

Installing via TWRP will show a couple of warnings about the missing "log" function, but should still succeed nevertheless.
