I'm really loving the look of this. Great work!

Not sure if youre collecting enhancements or bugs but noticed a couple of things:

Long press power button only has power off option.

And in settings grid view I'm seeing this icon in the middle of the screen:
View attachment 3299306

Stock AOSP only has power off, but in the next update I will add reboot and the other options back.

I will look into that icon for you though

I do very much love the ROM... but a couple other bugs i'm noticing, the Dialer App doesn't seem to show your favorite contacts under the "Speed Dialer" option. I've about 9 favorites but only one appears and it's not the first one, just randomly selected one.

Another bug is when using Google Play Music, it randomly force closes and when it comes back up, AudioFX and Soundalive both force close.
Plus also when going into Google Music to select which AudioDSP app to use, no matter what what you select Soundalive always comes up.

Nexus 6 SystemUI
I am providing anyone who is feeling risky to try this on their device. In most cases it has not worked, but on occasion it does. Once it starts working, it will work until you do something to your system. There are occasional SystemUI crashes when the signal is changing, but it restarts itself after a couple of seconds. If you are going to try this, PLEASE BACKUP YOUR PHONE. This is very important in case it fails to work. The problem is that it keeps crashing, so it is very difficult to do anything.

Nexus 6 SystemUI Test

Move the file to /system/priv-app/SystemUI and set permissions.

I can't seem to install the systemui using your method. It always crashes on me when I move it and change permissions, which I have to reboot to do anyway. Any chance you or someone else could create a zip we could flash to install the systemui?

I've been running this for several days wo any issues. I love the look and feel. It would be nice to get rid of the google widget. I changed to Apex launcher to do that but would rather have the "stock" one. Also prefer my old Samsung keyboard to the default one. But otherwise great. Anyone have backup suggestions? Was doing nandroid and titanium backups for a full solution prior to this and lost safestrap.

Nova Launcher is better. Light, fast, and you can disable the search bar.

Use FlashFire for your flashing/backup needs.

I use L launcher. Same exact thing as google except full customization. So you can disable google now. Alternatively you can uninstall google to remove google now.

Move the SystemUI to the system folder first then set permissions there then move it from system folder into the system/priv-app folder

In the systemui folder just move in there and replace the original. SystemUI. This will work for some but not other. If it FC your only means is to put the stock one back in then try a flashing it. Its actually a good Idea to always flash the SystemUi because when it FC your kinda screwed.

I have most of the FC issues fixed with the Nexus UI. I have been working on this a long time! I actually had a zip to flash asop apps and theme but since this rom is posted I will just pass my stuff to OP. He is doing a nice job! I have the AOSP settings mostly working but there is still problems with that. Probably just easier to them the stock one to look like it

It works now! Thanks for your help!

Now that it works the only problem I'm having is the battery saver pops up even when my phone is above 85% (I haven't tested with higher) saying that my phone is low on charge. It appears randomly when not plugged in unless I enable it and disable it, which isn't THAT big of a deal, but if it can be fixed somehow that would be great. Every so often I get an FC, but not often enough to concern me. Just a quick tap on "OK" and all better.

You can just swipe it away and it won't come back unless you put it back on the charger.

    Hey everyone. I'd just like to apologize for my absence. I've been busy with school and stuff and I haven't really had time for updating this ROM. I've actually switched to T-Mobile and got a G4 but I still have my S5. I just don't know how long I'll have it though. I will be attempting to update it to OG5 but I'm not sure how long that will take. I just want to say thank you for all of your support.

    I've decided that I am also going to work on a mod app.
