I just can't wait for Google to upload an official Nougat image for our beloved Shamu, so I compiled this from the source.

V4 Flashable ZIP: https://mega.nz/#!qkpBHQwY!9fWIu36NCDtP4NXnTnWE_FblWlk9vrwNtDE13eJbocA

Obligatory screenshots: https://imgur.com/a/cXrnH

Working
As Shamu is a supported device, most things work well here:
  • Booting
  • Cellular (Calling, SMS and data)
  • Audio
  • Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth
  • GApps (see below)
  • Easter egg :p

Not working (?)
  • Not working on Verizon, as reported here
  • There are probably more

GApps
This build has dm-verity enabled. With the stock kernel, GApps will not show up, or a warning is displayed when booting. To solve this, either use a custom kernel or use FED-Patcher.

After installing OpenGApps, you may encounter force closes during the Setup Wizard.

You can just skip setup without editing the build.prop. Just tap on the four corners of the screen, starting from top left, clockwise. Do it right, and you'll get sent to home screen.

Afterwards, to get rid of the Play Services force closes, go to Settings > Apps > Three dot menu > Show system and find Google Play Services. Enter the Permissions menu and grant all the permission it needs.

If apps requiring WebView force close, try excluding "WebviewGoogle" using the gapps-config config file. Details are available here.

Sources
This build was compiled on a modified tree. See the changelog for details.
Vendor blobs are downloaded from https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/blobs-preview

- Updated to 7.0.0_r6/NRD90U. So you want the shiny new build number? Here you go!

Flashable ZIP: [url]https://mega.nz/#!f4wSnTDL!3ifsV_qC_r-MJ-y45yDcwemkgTGY_jTr_OObHRktC-M[/url]
- The product name is now "Nexus 6" instead of the default "AOSP on Shamu". The modified device tree is available [URL="https://github.com/zhaofengli/device_moto_shamu"]here[/URL].
- The navigation bar editor is now accessible in System UI tuner. This is done by reverting [URL="https://android.googlesource.com/platform/frameworks/base/+/72195a011128d1c516149763c4c156539a470ed5"]this commit[/URL].
- I found out that I checked out the master branch for a handful of repositories when playing around. This is now fixed.
- This build was compiled with external/icu at [URL="https://android.googlesource.com/platform/external/icu/+/683055d9b50491dedbadea4e8ffb484e99e4f52b"]683055d[/URL] (the current master). This is to get RIL working.
- Developers: See [URL="http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=68556855&postcount=10"]this post[/URL] for a full explanation of the solution to get RIL working on 7.0.0_r1.

V1 - Initial build
Note: On a closer look, this is actually not a proper 7.0.0_r1 build. You should download V2 instead for a smoother experience.

I just can't wait for Google to upload an official Nougat image for our beloved Shamu, so I compiled this from the 7.0.0_r1 source. I can't take any credit for it, as this is built using the built-in build target, and nothing more.

Yes it does, you have to copy and paste but remove the <dot>

---------- Post added at 06:20 AM ---------- Previous post was at 06:11 AM ----------

Real question is, is this installed through factory recovery or can it be used through TWRP... Deff just tried TWRP and no success. will try flashing back to normal.
I removed the <dot> but it doesn't work.

looks like mega is having server issues... i got it though :D

Installing via TWRP will show a couple of warnings about the missing "log" function, but should still succeed nevertheless.

the log shown was simulating actions and then went to success. let me try again

Just curious why you're calling it "useless"?
Have you tested it at all, and if so, what works and what doesn't work?
Iirc, at the very minimum, you need to symlink vendor to system to get cellular connectivity working.

*edit*
Here is more info regarding the need for symlinking:

Thank you. Cellular connectivity is working, and the vendor blobs are present in the build. The exclamation mark on the screenshots are due to Google servers being blocked in China (which you can fix by changing the captive_portal_server global setting, in case if you are in the affected regions).

The reason I call it "useless" is that Google will likely get the official images out very soon, and this build will quickly become obsolete.

I will update the original post to include the test results.

So.. this probably force encrypts device, right?

    Try some build.prop magic to skip the Setup Wizard:
    Code:
    ro.setupwizard.mode=DISABLED

    Then, grant Google Play Services all permissions to get rid of the constant FCs.

    You can just skip setup without editing the build.prop. Just tap on the four corners of the screen, starting from top left, clockwise. Do it right, and you'll get sent to home screen.

    Hi folks, I've uploaded the V2 ZIP which is now a proper NRD90M build, plus some small changes. See the original post for details!

    You guys do know that the new kernel for the shamu has not been pushed to AOSP right? Nor have any of the binaries been updated for this device.
