Have any of you put Nova on it yet and if so how is it? Do you loose any functionality from the phone? Also, do all the Nova functions still work like adding many blank home screens without having to put a widget or app on it? I hate stock where in order to get a new home screen you have to put something on it. I like to have blank home screens to run live wallpapers. So, Nova folks, please reply. Thanks

Same here. No problems.
It even still lets me "Knock Off" the screen like I did on my G3. :)

No problems here either. In fact, it's better. I set a gesture to double tap to lock. Much easier than trying to adjust my hand to reach the lock button.

Would to explain how you did this? I use nova as well. Well, least for my Moto x 2013, I just ordered a Nexus 6 from Att. going to add Nova once it arrived .

You need Tasker to create the action of system lock. Then go to Nova settings, Gestures and buttons, double tap, task actions and then select the system lock option you created in Tasker. Not sure how to do it if you don't have Tasker.

Really? I didn't think Nova had that. Thanks
On the Prime version you can use the Gestures option for the double tap action and have it do the screen off app.
Use the "Screen off and Lock" app by Katecca on the Play Store.

I used a upgrade early option (basically Att next) It says "Over night shipping : next day" Free" BUT the estimate says 11/28-12/02 haha I guess I have to wait till i get a confirmation number. Just saying its getting ready to ship

I use Nova. It's the best launcher to use with stock Android or an AOSP rom IMO. It doesn't hiccup with the N6 and runs well with Lollipop. I have mine set up as close to the stock launcher as possible, minus the persistent search bar at the top of every screen.
