Please make a backup of the apk and /system/fonts/NotoColorEmoji.ttf before following the instructions.

Note: Not all of the emojis present in iOS 9.1 are currently supported.

Instructions:

1. Download the ttf file and install manually or download the flashable zip (Be sure to rename AppleEmoji9.1-caiosilva96.tff to NotoColorEmoji.tff)

2. Install the modded Google Keyboard.

3. Enjoy!

Files:

- Modded TTF or Flashable ZIP
- Modded Google Keyboard , armv64 download here

Thanks to @DespairFactor, @neonixxx, @caiosilva96 and @tccool987

Q/A
Q: Why are some emojis black & white?
A: Here's the solution and if you're on Lollipop you can download this flashable zip.

Q: My Google Keyboard is a system app and I can't install the mod.
A: Uninstall the app (with an app such as Titanium Backup) and install the mod

Q: Gesture typing and/or autocorrect is broken after installing the mod.
A: I'm still working on a fix for this, but for now switching the keyboard language to English (UK) will fix the problem.

Q: Whenever I delete some emojis, a different one appears, so I have to press backspace twice to delete.
A: This is because the emoji requires two unicode values. Sometimes when backspace is pressed, one of the unicode value is deleted, not both. I'm not sure why this happens, hopefully someone will come along and help solve the mystery...


Changelog
29/10/2015
- Added secondary keys, flags and numerical symbols (1, 2, 3 etc.)

I have modded Google Keyboard to include the new iOS 9.1 emojis! Please make a backup of Google Keyboard apk and /system/fonts/NotoColorEmoji.ttf before following the instructions.

Note: This has only been modded for KitKat and above. I'll update this post for Jellybean and others within a few hours

I am really hoping that you will list down step by step what you did so that I might be able to make you as my guide


Thank you
I did everything OP said.
BUT before flashing this, delete any mod you installed for emojis, and restore your original ones, reboot, then proceed to flashing.
Now do a backup for your Google keyboard (just in case) and install the one provided by OP.
Good luck :)

I do have busybox, though I never knew the purpose of it. I just install it and don't bother it. But I can't seem to have the iOS 9.1 (but other emoji can, for example Samsung, Google)

I had the same thing but that was because busybox was not installed correctly .... Did you went in the app busybox and then install ?

Maybe you did flash it right, try swiping between all the pages of your emojis.
I flashed using recovery I'm on 5.1.1

Developer is working on a fix https://www.reddit.com/r/Android/co...i_are_now_available_in_emoji_switcher/cwasg0l ;)

Edit: Found a possible fix, you probably don't have enough space in your /system/ partition.
Best is to convert some Google system apps to user apps with titanium backup to free up some space

    Why are some of my emojis black and white?

    I can give you a solution for this but it's quite technical and you need to have slight XML knowledge (easy). You ready? Here we go!

    - Go to /system/etc/ and open fonts.xml in an editor.
    - Locate this entry:
    <family>
    <font weight="400" style="normal">NotoColorEmoji.ttf</font>
    </family>​
    - Move that entry (cut and paste) below this line (This is the 95th line or somewhere near there.):
    <!-- fallback fonts -->​
    - Save file.
    - Make sure permissions are 644 (-rw-r-r).

    - Now open /system/etc/fallback_fonts.xml in an editor:
    - Locate this entry:
    <family>
    <fileset>
    <file>NotoColorEmoji.ttf</file>
    </fileset>
    </family>​
    - Move that entry (cut and paste) below this line (the line is at the beginning of the xml after the description comment.):
    <familyset>​
    - Save file.
    - Make sure permissions are 644 (-rw-r-r).

    - Reboot.

    good news...
    today, I've successfully build new fonts that support all new emojis (everything works just like emojione fonts) and works on 4.4+ of course...
    so here's additional release :
    - new modded font : googlefont, appleiosfont, and special twitter 2.0 font

    will be ready NEXT MONDAY! :highfive: :victory:

    ????
    Prepare for a huge update soon

    I'd like to ask you guys a question. The update is ready but I'm not yet able to make the diverse emojis "popup" when the default one is chosen. So should I release it with all the emojis being in one list, or would you guys wait until I'm done?

    Thanks for all the support!!!
