Though Google announced lots of new products in the latest I/O event, the most anticipated one was the next version of android ; Android M. Google obviously didn’t name it properly but we all knew it would be code named as M, as the previous versions were in alphabetical sequence. Just after after Lollipop, the Android M sets a trend in the technological lounges.
Google has already released the developer preview builds of Android M for the Nexus lines and the round-headed geeks were able to extract the Android M built-in launcher, ringtones, wallpapers , apps and even boot animation for the public. Here you can download the Android M properties and try it on your phone running above KitkKat.
As far as I tried, the ringtones and boot animations are almost similar (or the same) to the Lollipop ones. But the new Android M launcher is a great replacement for the trebuchet (if you’re using CM) or the stock KitKat/Lollipop launcher. The Android M camera is obviously perfect for a hassle-free photography but some features say, HDR will force close.
Here I combine the Android M Apps, launcher, wallpapers, ringtones and boot animation along with the installation guide. Make sure you’ve got a rooted phone (that’s why you’re reading this huh?) and a touch with any root browser, I prefer root explorer.
