How to Enable Multi-Window on Android M! [Nexus 5/ Nexus 6/ Nexus 9]

Check out the video below!

Android M was just announced a few days ago, but Google forgot to mention the hidden feature, multi-window! Yes, Android M comes with built in multi-window all you need to do is enable it. Since Android M is currently only available for the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, and Nexus 9 devices this guide will work if one of those devices is running on an Android M Preview build. 

While Android M is still months away from being officially announced to the public and multi-window isn't a true "official" feature the multi-window feature still works. However, I have experienced a few bugs with multi-window, but it's still 100% usable!

Remember your supported Nexus device muct have Android M Preview installed on it!

Depending on if you are running on Windows, Mac, or Linux/Ubuntu and what device you have follow the directions below!

Type in the commands and press enter after each line. 

Windows:

    Nexus 5:
    cd Desktop
    cd AndroidMPreviewMultiWindow

9. Open  the folder called, AndroidMPreviewMultiWindow. This is the folder you extracted in step 4.


10. In this folder you will now see a file called "build.prop". Open it up using a text editor. I recommend Notepad++ for Windows and TextEdit for Mac.


11. Find the line "ro.build.type=user" and change it to "ro.build.type=userdebug". Now save the file.


12. Go back to Command Prompt or Terminal and type in these commands. Press enter after the end of each line.

adb shell

cd system 
chmod 644 build.prop

Linux: 
./adb-linux push build.prop /system/
./adb-linux shell
cd system 
chmod 644 build.prop


13. Now go back to your device and select "Reboot" > "System". If TWRP asks you to install SuperSU select "Do Not Install". 


14. Your device will now boot up like normal, but now you will have multi-window enabled! Don't worry if you get a warning screen with "invalid boot img", your device will still boot up.


15. Your done. Open a few apps, select the recents button, and then tap on the black square to multi-window the apps!

How to Install Android M Preview on Nexus 5!

Check out the video below!

Android M Preview is out for the Nexus 5! Android M Preview brings a lot of enhancements that Lollipop lacks in like the ability to control app permissions, extreme battery saver mode, and even the option to backup app data! Android M Preview just about fixes everything that was lacking in Lollipop, just like what happened with KitKat and JellyBean. Luckily for people like us who want to try out the latest Android version, Google has released Android M Preview that allows us to experience Android M!

Remember, Android M Preview is a PREVIEW build. It is not an official build. Do not use Android M Preview as a daily driver until you have tested it in a controlled environment. I have been using Android M for the past few hours and it is pretty stable, but your experience may differ!

Note: This will wipe your phone, backup any important information before continuing!!

Follow the guide below to install Android M Preview on Nexus 5!

How to Enter Galaxy S6/S6 Edge into Recovery Mode!

Check out the video below!

Entering the Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge into Recovery Mode is a fairly easy process that will only take a few seconds to fully complete. But why would you need to enter into Recovery Mode? Firstly, it depends on if you are on stock Recovery or you are rooted and have a custom Recovery such as TWRP. Stock Recovery is much more limited to what you can do, but the main reason would be if you bricked your phone, stuck in boot loop and need to do a factory reset to get out of it. 

For users who have a custom Recovery like TWRP then you have a much wider array of options! The biggest use of custom Recovery is the ability to flash custom ROMS and zip files on your phone! Popular ROMS like CyanogenMod and AOKP! You also have the options to backup your entire phone that you can use as a restore point if something ever happens to your phone! 

Follow the guide below to enter the Galaxy S6/S6 Edge into Recovery Mode. 

1. Press and hold the power button until you see a pop up, then select "Power off".


2. Now press and hold the volume up, home button, and power button all at the same time until you enter into Recovery Mode. It will look different depending on if you are on stock Recovery or on a custom Recovery.



TWRP Recovery:

Stock Recovery: 

3. You're done. You have successfully entered the Galaxy S6/S6 Edge into Recovery Mode. Have fun installing customs ROMS, backing up your phone, or even a factory reset!
