Android 10 Launcher for Android 9.0+

Google has made an interesting change on Pie release: moving the recents app screen, along with the (was new) swipe up gesture to the stock launcher. Following that change, the Lawnchair team has released the QuickSwitch Magisk Module which allows you to change the "stock" launcher to a supported one that you prefer.

So let's get to the point. A week ago Google has released Android 10 along with its new, improved gesture navigation. It's much better than the gestures on Android Pie. Today, I'm happy to announce that you can get the new gesture navigation on Android Pie too with this port and the QuickSwitch Magisk Module.

Features
Video preview
- Clean stock Launcher3 base
- Android Q gesture navigation
- Swipe down for notification drawer
- Dark theme
- Google Feed (dark theme now included), YAY!
- Simple icon packs support (no dynamic icons/icon masking)

Installation
1. Install the QuickSwitch Magisk Module
2. Download and install the Launcher APK
3. Open the QuickSwitch app, select the launcher and reboot
4. Set it as the default launcher
5. Open home settings, select "Developer options" and then enable gestures in there

Download
Unified build
- Q_Launcher3-v1.3-debug.apk
- Q_Launcher3-v1.2-debug.apk
For Android Pie
- Q_Launcher3-Pie-v1.1-debug.apk
- Q_Launcher3-Pie-debug.apk
For Android 10
- Q_Launcher3-10-v1.1-debug.apk
- Q_Launcher3-10-debug.apk

Notes:
- This launcher requires the QuickSwitch Magisk Module to function properly. It should work as a normal launcher alone but that's untested.
- Unfortunately, the back gesture is a part os SystemUI and can't be achieved in this port, but you can use apps such as Fluid NG to replicate it.

It's not working for me. I've done all the steps. The name of the launcher linked here is "Quickstep" in my default apps settings. And choosing that makes it so I can't even close any app, it just reopens the app immediately. (like there is no home screen).

And I guess you don't mean the lawnchair settings? I thought that at first but there is no gestures option in the developer settings in lawnchair (latest beta).

Works flawlessly on my Xperia Z3 Carbon 7.0 Pie.
It would be nice with a dark background option.
Nice work, mate.

In addition to being selected in QuickSwitch, this launcher needs to be set as the default home app as well for the gestures to work.

That’s being worked on. Will come later in a few months.

Is quickswitch currently working on stock Android 10 rooted? And would following the steps and installing your debug launcher for Q still allow new Android 10 gestures to work?

Although untested, it should work as this launcher is the same one that stock Android 10 provides with only a few changes. Just make sure you download the one for Android 10 and it should be fine.

Awesome, there is no need to uninstall the original pixel launcher correct? And also great work!! You have done fantastic work over the years, the modded community wouldn't be the same without you!

Does the Pixel launcher from Android 10 come with new gesture animations, and are you planning to port it?


Also, for the people who have been using this launcher, what is your method of replicating Android 10's Navigation bar? I've tried Fluid NG and the Home button doesn't seem to work when Navigation bar is hidden. I'm on Xperia X running Lineage OS 16 (9.0).
