Thanks for the guide!
Could I make a couple suggestions?

1) Explain what profiles are. A quick Google search didn't really tell me about it.

2) Tell difference between uninstall vs clean.

3) Advise how to uninstall and clean all overlays.

4) Let us know how to automatically toggle from one theme to another (such as day/night theme)?

No you don't "need" it but it can making installing overlays faster. Only thing it does with root. Root isn't always stable either, I've seen it ask to install Andromeda because I lost root to subs. Magisk issue not subs though.

1. Profiles are like backup & restore, you can create profiles and use whichever one you like. For eg: If I want to apply nineteen's theme in the day and Sai's Oreo Theme at night, I can easily switch between both by using profiles for the same.

2. Uninstall and Clean are more or less, the same. Both of them uninstall your installed overlays.

3. Refer 2. ^

4. As I said in 1. and also explained in the profiles' section. Folloe the guide and you're good to go!

Android P Beta
Can this be used with the beta of Android P? Im currently using a non rooted Pixel XL so if it can I'm assuming I would follow the non Samsung Oreo instructions? Thanks in advance for the info.

Depends, On Oreo yes many themes do. Nougat there are some issues but can be themed mostly.

Screenshot is Oreo, theme: Sprite but there are many themes for Samsung now, Valerie, Victory, Flux, Swift..etc etc

note 8, not rooted, t mobile, themes and everything were working great, and now, no themes work any longer; I uninstalled all themes/substratum/andromeda, and still themes wont fully install. I go through the process, overlays appear to install, but then the final overlay, usually substratum, takes a very long time to process, then the inevitable error message, and reading the logchar, its usally an overlay or 2 that are a problem. after rebooting and trying again

to install a theme, and skipping the "bad" overlay, still ends up with an error, and theme doesnt install or apply..
Using Substatum 997..
weird how things were fine for a long time, and just stopped working

thanks for any help!
