Noto Emoji with Blobs enabled
This repository is intended to continue the development of the Blob emojis which have been abandoned by the original creators in 2017.

My goal is to upgrade the Blob emojis with a fresh style which is consistent to other emoji vendors.

Another thing is that this emoji set includes some emojis and ZWJ-sequences which are not part of the current emoji standard (although some or most of them are about to be included in the upcoming Unicode-standard), which means it might be one of the biggest emoji sets currently available! NotoColorEmoji fonts are provided by C1710's project.

NOTICE
You should use latest Magisk Manager to install this module. If you meet any problem under installation from Magisk Manager, please try to install it from recovery.

What program did you use to edit the Oreo emojis? I tried Emoji Tools but it doesn't work with the Oreo fonts.

I don't change any fonts. Please read the source code of my module first.

Can I downgrade the module?

I updated recently and I don't like the new Android Oreo Emojis.

That's the effect of my module. It prefers blob emojis in nougat than O emoji. So that we wouldn't meet fonts missing problem in other "replacing only" module.

If someone could blob-ify the new emojis manually, could they be added to this module? (or to a fork)

Sure. I will do anything possible for the person who would like to do that for community.

Here's an album I found on Reddit a while ago. It's impressive. https://imgur.com/a/yb13F

There should be a way to edit one of the .ttf files.

I'm not sure what you mean with blob or blob-ify, the emojis are just a font file.

Anyway, I decided to go a different way and used an app called Emoji Changer. It simply backups and replaces the font file using root. The downside compared to a Magisk module is, that the system partition needs to be changed. But this is no problem for me.

@simonsmh You maybe want to create more versions of your module, one for each emoji font (Android Nougat, Android Oreo, maybe more).

As I said, I installed the module and used and liked my Android Nougat emojis. Then an update arrived, I installed it, and had the Android Oreo emojis, which I don't like.

So, is it possible to downgrade a Magisk module in general?

I can't generally understand your meaning. Now does your device have both two emoji like the screen shot I posted above or you just can't see any blob emoji (Android N emoji) and you can only see Android O emoji?

To test it, please visit https://emojipedia.org/emoji-4.0/ and you should see that there is showing up blob emoji. While in https://emojipedia.org/emoji-5.0/ you could see that all the emoji comes from Android O emoji. That's the normal effect that this module does.

There are huge amounts of fonts replacing module, already made by other developer, only if you don't need emoji compatibility.
