The three main people who helped to create the popular Xposed module Android N-ify have now decided to end their direct development involvement. The main developer behind the software, MrWasdennnoch, stated that the main reason for this decision was that he’s “not really interested in the module anymore.” He added that the two biggest contributors to Android N-ify, paphonb and Maxr1998, are leaving the project for similar reasons.
The first version of Android N-ify launched earlier this year, with the goal of giving phones that could not get the update to Android Nougat some of the features of the OS. In his post on the XDA Developers forums, MrWasdennnoch stated that now that he had completed work on the module’s new notification design and animations, he doesn’t want to work on anything else with Android N-ify.
He added that he had recently flashed Nougat onto his own phone so he had no personal use for the module he had created. It’s also quite time consuming, making sure N-ify works on a wide number of devices, which the developer says has turned the project into “a rather boring and repetitive task.”
While the main team behind Android N-ify may be moving on, the module is still available for download at the Xposed Module Repository site for anyone to access and use, and the source code is also available at GitHub.
