I have Honor 6X BLN-L21 variant running on Android Nougat, rooted with magisk. I'm using Gboard as my keyboard.
TO change my default system emojis, I installed Whatsapp emojis from magisk but the problem is the gboard is somehow showing android oreo emojis instead of the system emojis (which is whatsapp emoji pack). It's really annoying problem. I've tried everything from resseting gboard data, cache clear, uninstall/reinstall.
After uninstall/reinstall, for brief moment it shows system smileys, then a pop-up appears "Updating your typing experience", and then the emojis goes back to oreo emojis whcih is really annoying.
