[APK] Enable Double Tap to wake on your Nexus 6 with this app (root required)


Since the release of the Nexus 6, everyone has been wondering why would Google deactivate the double tap to wake feature – a feature that the Nexus 9 has.They instead opted for the ambient display.mode which is great and all but not as cool as double tap. Thankfully, XDA member ‘naxir‘ made an app that lets you do that and shared it with the Android community.

In order to make it work, you need to root your Nexus 6 and have an unlocked bootloader. Once you do that, all you have to do is install this APK and that’s it. Keep in mind that the Nexus 6 Doubletap unlock app is still in early stages meaning that you will find bugs. Folks are reporting that they need to re-enable the app after a reboot and that it doesn’t work well with the proximity sensor (phone could wake up in your pocket). Rest assured, ‘Naxir’ says that he’s already working on a fix today.

We’ll keep you updated once he releases an updated version of his app.

      You don’t have to be rude. Somehow the link didn’t work and I just fixed it. I didn’t steal it by the way, nor claimed it was mine.

        But you didnt credit the originator until people pointed it out. I am sure you have done this many times before. Now get off the computer, it is your sabbath, hebe,.

          I obviously forgot to include the link. His name is in the article and in the screenshot. Not here to steal people’s ideas. Thanks for checking though.

          Not Jewish by the way.
