[GUIDE] Enable "Double Tap to Wake" on Nexus 6 Without Root

 
The long became fashionable function, wake up the phone or tablet with a double-Tab is not given in the Nexus 6 of the house, though there was information that Google had originally planned. With a little tinkering, but it can be reinstalled. The device must not be rooted for this operation, but the boot loader unlocked (OEM Unlock) and the TWRP recovery should be installed.

Installation:

  • Makes a backup of the file  /system/lib/hw/power.shamu.so
  • copies the modified power.shamu.so in the directory / system / lib / hw /
  • Set attributes of the file to 644
  • Done
The required file can be found in this post in XDA forum .
Kickedface will be not responsible for damaging your device. Please really make a backup of the file so that you can return just in case, back to your original configuration. Such changes take place naturally at your own risk.
For years I personally find the double-Tab2Wake history already a great feature. Especially for larger devices (like earlier with power button on the top of the phone), it is a pain to unlock the device easy (or only with one hand). I would probably install this modification as the first official act. What do you think?
