Enable Edge Features on Galaxy Note 5

Enable Edge Features on Galaxy Note 5

Want to enjoy S6 Edge features on Galaxy Note 5?  Today, we will help you do just that.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and Note 5 may belong to the same generation, but there’s a huge difference between the two, which is the edge screen technology offered by the S6 Edge. Note 5 is good, and the Stylus makes it even great. But why limit yourself?

Applauds for XDA members – Androidwizzard and thereassaad, who have worked hard collaboratively to create this cool MOD. You can now enable the same edge features from the S6 Edge+, on your Note 5. Well, the most happening downside would still be, that the Note 5 doesn’t have a curved screen. Apart from that, the functions work just the same way, but with the flat screen, in this case.

So what do you get precisely? The edge notifications, you can swipe the edge to launch apps, open edge contacts and circular contact actions, and you will also have the ability to choose whether to swipe out the edge from left or right. Install it and you find the other features yourself. Please note that, News Line and Night Clock won’t work.

The MOD currently support – N920C, N920L, other variants would supported in the future, for sure.

TWRP must be installed on your Note 5 to flash this MOD. You can grab it from TWRP website, and flash it using Odin flasher. Also, since the MOD uses modified framework files, you must have a deodexed ROM installed, the best would be dr.ketan’s ROM (How to Flash Custom ROM on Android). It is strongly recommended to take a Nandroid backup of your current ROM, just in case you want to go back for some reason, or it doesn’t work on your variant. Now, moving on-to the installation.

  1. Download the MOD from the XDA thread, or directly get it from here.
  2. Connect your device to the PC using USB cable, in MTP mode.
  3. Transfer the downloaded file to your phone’s storage. Now disconnect your Note 5 and power it off completely.
  4. Boot into TWRP recovery mode – Simultaneously, press and hold the Home, Volume Up and Power keys until you see the phone’s screen light up. Your phone will enter TWRP recovery mode now.
  5. Once you are in TWRP, go to Install. Browse and find the “Edge+feature_forN5_20151109.zip” file you have earlier transferred.
  6. Now, swipe the “Swipe to confirm Flash” button on the bottom of the screen.
  7. The process will finish within a matter of seconds. When done, tap on Reboot System.

Okay, that’s it! You have just enabled edge features from the Galaxy S6 Edge+ on your Galaxy Note 5.
