I got to the point when it only FC's when I press the volume buttons. Much like some other person,I forgot his name. (Sorry bro). Still messing around with it though.
Im totally new to all this android stuff (just switched from iOS, yeet yeet) and I don't completely understand how to do this....So...i installed the ROM, put the Nexus UI in the /system/ folder, then deleted regular ui out of the /system/priv-app/SystemUI folder, then put the nexus ui in there and it just kept saying System UI has stopped OVER AND OVER no matter how many times i rebooted. OP said i needed to change permissions?? What permissions? And what does FC mean?
How do you get it to only crash when you press volume down? Cause i can live with that.
My current skill consists of knowing how to root and flash things, simple basic understanding of ROMs and a little knowledge of the benefits of rooting. Like i said i'm new.

FC means Force Close.
Move the UI to the /system, then Change permissions to 644( I think) then move it to priv-app. Reboot and it should work

So how's it coming on the bug fixes? Is there an upcoming version change? I want to install this on my fiancee's phone but she'd have my head for the bugs that i'm willing to put up with. She was quite cross with me when i told her my phone was still at 82% after being unplugged for 10 hours today. Which by the way if anyone is wondering how i achieved this...Greenify.

I've been meaning to work on this but my school load has increased for exams. I will be able to work on it this weekend though.

Not to go offroad from the original post but how exactly are you using greenify. Im new to android (yeet yeet) and i have greenify but idk how to use it properly, what freezing the apps does, how it works, anything. So its basically sitting on my phone blank.

Well, definitely have to be rooted for best effects. That's the first thing.
When I launched greenify it didn't find anything to hibernate. So i manually selected apps that I knew was constantly running and now it just auto hibernates them. So look into your application manager and see which apps constantly run (facebook, facebook messenger, hangouts, etc) try even manually force closing or stopping some apps from running and see which ones instantly load back up without you doing anything else, then go into Greenify and hibernate those apps.
As we speak pretty much the only things running is most of the Android OS stuff, and well Plex (kinda like using that as a remote or portable movie theater for the bathroom) <--bad potty humor

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.

Hey everyone, I'm just wondering what's different about the Nexus UI from the one we have in this ROM?

It's not the interface of the Nexus. The Nexus UI is stock Android, while we're stuck with Sammy's to-Touchywiz. Different notification bar, toggles, just overall better with the stock UI.
I understand its stock but the term Nexus UI has just been used this whole thread haha. Obviously the UI from another phone isn't going to match up perfectly but it can be modified to work right?

Alright....Im starting to get tired of trying this over and over. I set the permissions to 0644 like i was told and when i replace it, it reboots then gives me a System UI has crashed error that i have dismissed over 100 times that pops back up the very second i close it. What the hell do i do?

The dev. Is messing with the code, shouldn't be long now. But some functions will work, whole others won't.

Every device is different, it'll work on some devices, but not on others.

    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.

    And remove the old system UI right? Do we put it in the system/priv-app/SystemUI folder or just system/priv-app?
    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
