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.
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
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
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!
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.
