As some know Greenify is app that hibernates user apps to free up more RAM and CPU Performance. I've noticed that lots of Users want to Greenify system apps but Greenify only allows to Greenify user download apps. Not everyone know how to Greenify system apps but some do, so therefore I want to spread knowledge, but there are limitations.

********Requirements *************
•Root
•SU Permissionsc
•Greenify *Donation Version*(As this method doesn't work with the Free version)
•Your Device (works with almost any Android device, preferably with Google Play)EDIT: Only for Android 4.0+
***********************************

*******Instructions ****************
★Before we continue, as with any guide, this guide doesn't promises Guarantee that it will work with all devices or cause any problems, so I or the Developers of the app are NOT responsible for any damage made to the device or the user.★

1) Install Donation Version of Greenify from any of your sources.
2) Give Root Permissions to the app
3) Go to the “Greenify Wizard" by pressing the “+" in the Upper Right hand corner.
4) Press the “Search" button located in Upper Right Hand corner.
* This Will take you to the Home screen *
5) Now, you can select any SYSTEM app in the Drawer or Home screen, once the app is launched press the Greenify notification in the Notification Drawer.
6) Greenify will warn you that System apps are not recommended to be Greenified, click “Insist". The app should now be greenified.
7) To continue greenifying system apps repeat Steps 3-6.

I hope this help some people, so if you like hit the “Thanks" button or give a reply.

How about including a list of system apps you have successfully/ safely hibernated here.. I think it'll help much.

Xposed Framework helps, but its not required to Greenify System Apps. I recommended, though.

I have noticed that when clearing a system app’s it will disappear from Greenify. I am going to contact Oasis Feng about this bug (not much of a bug since its experimental).

Thanks for the Advice. Now I am building a List for AOSP System Apps and CyanogenMod System Apps. Hopefully I will get a list of working apps for some popular individual ROMs.
