True... But I think that it should become the default behavior and not experimental (if only the one issue would be resolved, I tried to looked in to it and I think that the calculated height of the notification is wrong while heads up is displayed). Especially when grouping gets ported :)
Quick question concerning direct reply : with auto installed, hangouts reply works but doesn't get removed, is this because the notification shouldn't be removed, instead it should be updated with the reply sent ? I don't have a nougat device so I don't really know how it's supposed to work.
Another problem is that you can't click on notifications when the QS are expanded and the experimental behavior activated. That sounds unimportant at first, but I actually noticed it multiple times too and it's a bit annoying. That has to be fixed first. Also it's not compatible with LP.

Lol, I've been reporting this since I first downloaded this module weeks ago :laugh:, I gave up tho.

Does anyone have the experimental versions working on a Samsung device? The stable version works fine. It may be my rom. Any insight would be appreciated.

Im sure the module has given me unlimited photos for Google just like the pixel
Sme here, but before I even installed xposed
All I did was install N ify when I flashed CM13 to my G5

I got the unlimited photos before even installing xposed. It's the opengapps package that does it, not this module.
Wow, How has opengapps done that?

Late snapshots bootlooped on cm12.1 of some of my friends. Is 712 safe for cm12.1?
Test yourself. But make sure you can still revert.

To all: WiFi icon issues are known, and I spend the whole evening trying to fix them.. The landscape crash wasn't fully fixed actually in #712, I just accidentally hid it behind another catched crash, which now causes this issue.
The failure of my previous "fix" is funnily because of a bug in AOSP, which just never came to light.. In N, the relevant parts got removed anyway, and in CM13, the issue got fixed by the rom devs.
Since there is no stable and globally compatible solution, the enlarged first row styling will be removed, which means that you can still have only two items in first QS row, but there won't be a separator line and an expand arrow anymore.

Nexus 7 (2013)
HTC One (M8)
Ok, this works fine on my HTC m8 running S. Rom 7.5.0. Decided to try it on my LG G Pad 8.0, rooted with king root then SuperSU me pro and installed Xposed with flashfire. Other modules seem to work but this one does nil and zip on it. It's the stock 5.0.1 rom with selinux set to permissive and a locked bootloader. Any ideas?

Any hope of Pixel app launcher shortcuts coming to Android, the ones in action launcher 3 don't support all apps, they're just hard coded :/

Yeah opengapps automatically gives you unlimited photos storage, even if you haven't edited your build.prop

They would only be halfway posible; let me explain a bit:

There are two types of shortcuts: static and dynamic ones. Static shortcuts are declared as a metadata in the apps manifest file while dynamic shortcuts are updated at runtime via a new API which allows apps to add/edit/remove shortcuts. As you (hopefully) (already) know it's not possible to implement new APIs (classes, methods) via Xposed, so it won't be possible to add this API. Static shortcuts could be added, but (as the name suggests) they don't change and aren't 'context-aware'. It would also be required to hook every major launcher to add the required layouts, views and code to make them work properly. Additionally most launchers are obfuscated which requires a module update every time a launcher has an update.
In the end it's up to the launcher to implement app shortcuts, using a module would mean very much work for little result.

QS on lockscreen

Is there any way to show the QS icons here on the lockscreen?

@Maxr1998 Direct reply for Hangouts still isn't working for me; I only have the default button from Hangouts that opens the MM reply popup. I can't really show anything other than screenshots so is this worth opening in GitHub?

Also, did you guys just flash the 7.0 OpenGapps?

    Android N-ify - Use several features introduced in Android N on your Lollipop and Marshmallow device!

    Your device doesn't get an update to Nougat or you are just too impatient to wait? Then this module is what you need! Android N-ify allows you to use many of those new fancy features on older devices.

    Important: Read here about the future of the module!

    Supported features:
    • New notifications and quick settings
    • New recents design
    • Settings tile summaries
    • Quick Switch (Double-tap recents to switch to last app)
    • Use recents button to navigate through recents

    Planned features:
    • Updates & Improvements according to Nougat source
    • Quick reply [Progess: 99% (Available in snapshots {NOTE: The apps actually have tu use Quick Reply. Even though it's implemented doesn't mean everp magically uses it})]
    • New QS animation [Progess: 95% (Available in snapshots)]
    • QS Editor [Progess: 99% (Available in snapshots)]
    • QS Pages [Progess: 99% (Available in snapshots)]
    • Emergency info on lockscreen [Progess: 99% (Available in snapshots)]
    • App install source in app info [Progess: 99% (Available in snapshots)]
    • Navigation draver in Settings [Progess: 50% (making it compatible with LP and other ROMs)]
    • Night mode
    • New crash message design
    • New app installer design
    • N easter egg
    Yep, that will be a huge update when it's ready.

    IMPOSSIBLE features (so far):
    • Multi-window (I'm not talking about enabling the M Multi-window, I'm talking about the true N one)
    • DPI selector
    • Data saver
    • Tall recents. We can make them wider, but not taller.

    Features I'm not going to implement:
    • New navigation bar (Use the module Nougat Navigation Bar instead)
    • New Doze mode (my implementation would be basically the same as the ones in Greenify, ForceDoze, NapTime etc)

    Read the FAQ and Known Issues section below before posting a question or request!

    The builds above are outdated. New snapshot builds are available one post below.
    Only working on Android 5+. Might not work on ROMs that heavily modify code I'm touching with this module (I'm looking at you, TouchWiz, LG, and partially HTC).
    There are Snapshots available in the second post.

    FAQ / Bugreport Guidelines

    Snapshot users: There is a FAQ about Google Assistant and Direct Reply available.

    Feature xyz isn't working for me!!
    Good to know that something is somewhat broken for someone. I'll fix it in no time because I know exactly which Android version you use, which ROM and most important what went wrong. Many thanks for you detailed bug report!
    Now seriously, I get these types of reports way too often: When you report a bug, please first check the Github issues. If your issue isn' t reported there yet, open a new issue on Github and attach at least your Xposed log. Only post a logcat if an app (i.e. the SystemUI) crashes.

    People seem to have features that I don't have in my version?
    If that's the case then you are probably using an official version from the Xposed repository. These are considered stable and most features should work for everyone. If you want to have fun with the newest features have a look at the post above, there you can find snapshots that contain the newest chages.

    Can you please add feature xyz?
    First: I only add features taken from Nougat. If you want me to add something that isn't available on Nougat - No. This is no theming engine.
    If your feature is taken from N, first have a look at the "Impossible" section above. If it isn't listed there - Great! It will be implemented at some point if I consider it possible / reasonable.

    If you see another regulary asked question that isn't listed here yet please tell me.
    HUGE Update: v0.2.0

    It's finally here, the long-awaited update with new notifications, quick settings and recents! And before you ask, no, no quick reply yet, but it will hopefully be implemented in the next version! Same thing qith the quick settings: The QuickQS (Yes, that's how they are called in the code) aren't animated yet, but the most important thing is - they are there :D
    The recents also got a new look, they now fill the whole width and the "no recents" image looks just as in N! We haven't found a way yet to change their height. Oh, and the easter egg... see yourself :)

    Huge thanks to @paphonb for adding the new notifications and helping with various other implementations. Also thanks to all translators who help making this module accessible to everyone.

    Have fun experimenting around with the new features and open an issue on GitHub in case something crashes :)

    Known bugs:
    • Some "clear all" buttons aren't working, disable the tweak to fix that for now
    • On some devices the volume panel and heads up notifications don't use the full width


    - New notification design
    - New status bar header design
    - New Recents design
    - More double-tap fixes
    - Use recents button to
      - return to last app
      - return to current app
      - navigate through recents
    - Option to restart SystemUI
    - App theme switch
    - About screen in app
    - Option to force english app language
    - Dutch, Farsi, French, Korean, Polish, Russian, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian and Vietnamese translation
    Hey guys! I have a rather serious announcement to make and waited until after christmas to post it here (unlinke the guys over at CM ), so please put away the pitchforks.

    As some of you may have noticed there weren't many module updates in the past weeks. In fact my last commit is over a month ago. There are several reasons to this. It may disappint many people but that's the way it evolved.

    In short: I will stop developing this module.

    That doesn't mean it will be completely discontinued though. I won't push any changes anymore (except for translation updates) but the build server is still running, so if anybody wants to make some changes (or a collaborator) they will become available to everyone.

    My main reason to stop developement is that I'm not really interested in the module anymore. I already have what I originally wanted and what motivated me to continue (mainly the new notification design / animations). Now that this is done I don't really want to do anything new.
    I also recently flashed Nougat on my phone so I don't have a use for this module anymore and more and more phones receive an (inofficial) update for Nougat too.
    Another thing is that I'm mainly the guy who is responsible for framework compatibility, for making the module work on a wide variety of devices. The problem is that it's a rather boring and repetitive task. I basically have to decompile every SystemUI, find the issue and try to fix it or work around it. Fixing such an issue can take up multiple days because you have to install the new version, reboot, test it and report back. Different tine zones can slow it down even more. And with every new feature there comes a flood of new bugs and incompatibilities which want to be resolved. People posting duplicates or insufficient information (or just completely stop responding) don't help either.
    Then, as I just mentioned, there's the "problem" with Xposed that you have to reboot the phone every time you test a change, and if I'm not sure how something works or how to fix it it takes up multiple hours in which I basically just wait for my device to boot up.
    Also I want to spend time with other modules or apps that I've completely neglected while I was busy with N-ify. I'm currently develping a "normal" app with all the material beauty and animations and it's just way more fun than waiting and waiting over and over again. I also want to start working on LockMod again and support more than just styling the pattern (even though the rainbow shaders are fun).

    The 2 main contributors @paphonb and @Maxr1998 also won't actively develop the module anymore for similar reasons.

    I hope I didn't burst anyone's bubble or made somebody really sad. It's just the way it turned out to be. And as I said it's not completely abandoned, changes will still be built and will be available for everyone to download.

    Having this off my chest I want to wish everyone happy holidays (afterwards) and a happy new year!
    The changelog can be found here: https://github.com/wasdennnoch/AndroidN-ify/blob/master/changelog.md

    Thanks to @paphonb and @Maxr1998 there will be a new build every time a new commit gets pushed to the open source repository. Note that you have to uninstall the official version before installing a snapshot and vice versa. You can find the newest preview builds here: https://paphonb.xyz/site/jenkins/job/AndroidN-ify/
    These builds also contain experimental features, but you have to guess how to tap them - eh, unlock them.
