Since someone i trusted took a zip i made(dont know who) and uploaded it to the public figure i might as well post the original zip.
credits for the leak cant be given due to nda's, jobs, etc. just be grateful :)

apks need to be installed to system for google now page to work as well as wallpaper picker best bet is to just flash the zip as it is. or place the apks in the correct locations with correct permissions

Force closes for me, tried installing both as a normal APK and pushing to /system/priv-apps/NexusLauncherPrebuilt and setting permissions. (Galaxy S4 TouchWiz 5.0.1 Rooted, Xposed)

Any suggestions?

Attachment added since AFH is down for maintenance.

So without root this can't work properly I take it?
You just need a way to flash it or push it to /system/priv-app/NexusLauncherPrebuilt. You don't need to be rooted to actually use it.

The path should be /system/priv-app/NexusLauncherPrebuilt (don't know if that was just a typo here) but so far it has only been tested on Marshmallow and Nougat, it may just be incompatible with Lollipop. You may try flashing it if you have the ability to do so.

I checked the path, it is correct. I also tried flashing it with the same results. I know that the apk is lollipop-compatible as it does not throw a package parse error at install. Something else must be causing it to crash...

I was on the Google app beta stream, so I even tried opting out of that and installing the release version, that did not work either... so it's not an issue with the Google app.

Also force closes for me running DP5, Nexus 6p. I'm not having much luck on G+ getting answers to wether or not other preview users are having the same issue after flashing the zip.

Strange. I've tried a few times now, always with the same result. Flashes and installs fine but as soon as I try to access the home page I get constant force closes. I'll have to give up and troubleshoot in the morning.

Maybe try a different zip, I've tried 2 different ones trying to get rid of the dock problem.
