Android Nougat: How to Enable Hidden Navigation Bar Tweaks

With the final release of Android Nougat, Google has introduced some new features but it has also removed some of the features that were in the developer preview. One that many people really enjoyed was the nav bar tuner. XDA user AL_IRAQI has created a flashable zip that allows you to get that feature back.

Now you’ll see a menu for your system UI tuner in your settings. In this menu you’ll find options for the night mode feature and the nav bar. You can modify the buttons on your nav bar and even specify the amount of space in between them.
