PIXEL 2 EXPERIENCE



As a Mi A1 user, I was stuck with Stock Oreo 8.0.0 without Oreo custom ROMs when I first bought my device. Kernel sources weren't released at the time so I decided if I can cook up a Magisk module that can bring me the Pixel Experience ROM without the need to install that certain ROM. What I did is to search around the internet which lead me to several mods on XDA, GitHub and other websites which have extracted files from the Pixel 2 devices. I've decided to gather them and compiled them all into a single Magisk Module. This module can be flashed with other devices on Nougat and above as well.

FEATURES
  • Customized Pixel 2 Launcher by @whataudoinghere
  • Modded Pixel 2 Launcher by @paphonb
  • Rootless Pixel Launcher by @azaidi
  • Ruthless (Pixel 2) Launcher by @shubbyy
  • Pixel 2 audio files (ringtones, notifications, ui, alarms)
  • Pixel system accent theme (in system/vendor/overlay/Pixel)
  • Camera2API support - to check if working, install the Camera2 Probe app via the Play Store
  • EIS support - to check if enabled, visit your Google Camera app's settings and look for Enable Video stabilization
  • Google Lens feature enabled in Google Photos app
  • Launcher Backup/Restore function
  • Enable Google Assistant
  • Adds Pixel-exclusive wallpapers via Google Wallpapers app (download Google Wallpaper Images to add more wallpapers)
  • Google Sans font family used in Google Assistant, Pixel Launcher, System Update window, SetupWizard text, number texts in Settings app in 8.1+ (Storage usage, Data usage, Battery percentage)
  • Enable Night Light support (feature varies on your ROM; option could be enabled on some while enabling doesn't do anything on others; thanks to @Soheil_rf for his overlay)
STEPS TO INCLUDE PIXEL 2 BOOTANIMATIONREQUIREMENTS
  • Android Nougat 7.0+
  • Magisk 15.0+
  • Remove all Substratum overlays related to Pixel Launcher
DOWNLOADS
  • NOW AVAILABLE IN THE MAGISK REPO
OLDER DOWNLOAD LINKSCHANGELOGPROPER STEPS TO UNINSTALL MODULE
  • In order to avoid bootloops after removing the module, you will need to remove all overlays. Go to Magisk Manager and uninstall the module then reboot to TWRP. Flash the Substratum rescue zip found here to remove all remaining overlays. You should be able to reboot without any problems afterwards!

  • Ringtone: The big adventure

The font change only shows up in Google Assistant as well as the system update window in Settings app as it works like that in Pixel 2. Also check your Settings > Display option and you should see the Pixel theme there. If not, try installing something from Substratum and it should show up.

What do you mean by installing something from substratum? I already got themes installed on substratum (disabled for testing the mod). And the font, indeed is changed

Enable a theme, like Swift Dark, or something. Then the Pixel toggle would show up.

Your "Pixel theme" is a rip off from a substratum theme.
I would recommend you to remove it because for this reason a few threads here have been already closed .
Otherwise it's a good Magisk module.

This is not a rip-off theme. This came from the Pixel 2. A generous member from the Pixel 2 sub-forums extracted files from the system/vendor folder and was kind enough to share it. Don't assume unless you've even checked first.

Here's a screenshot and a link to the thread of the files in question if you have further doubts.

I have checked it and the fact that it has exactly the same effect when the apk is installed, let me assume that it is another rip off.
I did not want to accuse you and apologize if it is not true.
The fact that it appears only after installing a substratum themes makes me still suspicious.

I wish that people don't act like they know it all without even making a magisk mod...

Thanks for this great mod! Everything works fine!
