[Guide] How to Port Pixel Navigation Bar Animation to Your Phone (Updated to 7.1.1 Final)

After I posted the Pixel Navigation bar animation mod for Nexus 5X / Nexus 6P, I have received a number of people’s messages, they were asking me to port the animation to their Roms. So I have tried on some custom Rom and succeed in 7.1 Rom, like Oneplus One with AOSP Rom, HTC M8 with CM 14.1, and Nexus 6 running UBERSTOCK Rom, but failed with all the 7.0 Roms, maybe someone could pointed out if the failure is API related.

Developers has found the code of this new partial screenshot function in the AOSP sources, and succeed in activing it on custom roms for Nexus 4. However it was also hidden in the latest Android 7.1.1 DP1, you just need to modify the SystemUI.apk to enable it.

As the Camera X author no longer update his mod of Google Camera 3.2, I just modified the New Google Camera 4.2, active its hidden features for Nexus 5X, which is Smartburst and 240 FPS slow motion video. If you are using Nexus 5X, it definitely better than the stock Camera.

The new Google Camera v4.2.022.135443920, AKA the Pixel Camera, can be updated through the Play Store, this is an official release version, not from the Pixel system dump, so it’s more stable and clean.

The Android 7.1 system dump appeared, lots of APKs required 7.1 to run. I decompiled the Camera APK, changed the min requirements to Android 7.0, and everything works, especially the new manual exposure feature, I tested on my Nexus 5X with Android Nougat, it should works on Nexus 6P too.

We know about that both of the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P has the same rear camera hardware, the Sony IMX377EQH5, but only the Nexus 6P’ Google camera has the Smart Burst and 240 fps slow motion features. Why Google didn’t enable those features on Nexus 5X?
