Change Your Navigation Bar to Look Like Android L with Xposed
Android L is a big thing. And in many ways, it’s perhaps the biggest release since Ice Cream Sandwich, as it brings tons of new API and end user changes under the hood. Android L is already available to download as a developer preview for Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013) users, and it should be ready for the public in the Fall. But in the meantime, you can enjoy bits and pieces from the developer preview ported to other devices with KitKat, Jelly Bean, and so on.
If you took a look at L screenshots, you undoubtedly noticed its changes to the navigation bar. It was redesigned to match the new Material design. Thanks to Xposed Framework and XDA Senior Member prithvee, you can now try the Android L’s navigation bar on your device. The module changes the look of the “standard” Android 4.0+ navigation bar to look like L’s modified offering.
The module is very simple and has no configuration options. To use it on your device, simply install the APK, enable it in Xposed, and reboot your device. The changes should be visible right away if you are running Android 4.0 or newer. Just be sure that you have Xposed Framework installed and properly configured.
