About xXx NoLimits


xXx NoLimits is an OxygenOS Stock ROM enhancement for OnePlus 6/6T (Enchilada)


xXx NoLimits is not a Rom itself but it's a Magisk Module which works exactly like all my previous Roms except that it does not include any OOS Rom components like Firmware, System, Vendor partitions or the Kernel. Therefore the size went down to about 200MB+. In combination with the OOS stock Rom it still provides you with all options you might have used already with my previous Rom versions.

As a Magisk Module running on top of the OOS stock rom, xXx NoLimits works 100% Systemless and provide you with plenty of options to be selectively installed. This way you get most of the typical things you usually have to collect and install one by one all out of the box.

Advantages over my previous full rom concept
- Works independent of the current OOS Rom version
- Still working after OOS version upgrade
- Support OOS Stock Rom OTA's
- When a new OOS OTA is available, just run the OOS update, flash Magisk again and xXx NoLimits is still in place and working like before
- Complete Systemless - Don't touches system or vendor partition at all
- Debloating without touching the system partition.
- You can change debloat options and simply flash xXx NoLimits again without the need to install the OOS stock rom again.
- smaller and faster download
*
Must Requirements
- OOS Stock Rom with basic android setup in place
- A working Magisk in place
- Flashing in TWRP only

My focus with this Rom enhancement is to provide a smooth and snappy user experience with a decent battery life but also have some additional functions, tweaks and mods available which, for my taste, are missing in the stock OOS Rom.
*
This is not a commercial project but my hobby. I developed this for my daily driver device and I decided to share it with you.

xXx System Tweaks

I added several tweaks on different levels to make the rom faster and snappy.
These tweaks also improve multitasking and maintain the system to be constantly fast.
6/8 GB RAM can (and should) hold a lot apps and services in the background. If you like apps to popup in virtual no time I recommend you to not close them when you change to another app but just put them to the background. Also, when speed is more important to you than window animations you can reduce the 3 Animation scale values in the developer options and select the AKT Burnout Kernel Profile.
xXx Tweaks includes There are also several more features under the hood like:
WiFi channel bonding for the 2.4GHz frequency
ART Optimization
Detaching of modded apps
Disable Google Play Wakelocks for better battery life
LMK Tweaks to use all RAM down to about 700MB left for best multitasking
Kernel Tweaks
…and several more


Debloating
The rom provides you with the full range off not debloated at all (like OOS stock) to max debloated.
I also included a flash option to select Extreme Debloating. This will debloat the rom down close to a core Android level. You need to enable this option to take advantage of it.
The advantage of debloating is to gain even more speed and battery saving as less unused apps and services are running or even more free RAM to hold your favorite apps in background.
The downside is that you might miss certain apps or functionality but definitely nothing what will make your android unstable. All Google Apps are all available via Play Store as well.

Sound Enhancement
xXx NoLimits includes ViPER4AndroidFX by default unless you disable it in the flash options. I also included my favorite sound profile which you will love for sure as well. Otherwise select the full profile package as well.
Dolby Atmos is also available as an option and work side by side with Viper and the Stereo mod.


Systemizing Apps
For all who have issues with apps being killed in the background even they are marked as not to be battery optimized. If this happens, you won't get notifications anymore from that specific app and next time you jump to that app it have to be loaded again instead of still being available in Ram.

In order to work around this issue, you can now place your critical apps as apk file with any filename in the following folder:
/sdcard/xXx/apps
All apk files will be installed as system apps when you flash NoLimits next time.

Now your selected apps will behave like a system app and as system apps are excluded from battery optimization mechanisms, they are most likely not killed anymore in background.

Let's say you want to do this with Whatsapp and have Whatsapp already installed as user app. This is not a problem. You don't lose any data and if updates are available, they will be applied by the Playstore like always. The apps are installed system-less as part of the NoLimits Magisk Module and NOT placed on the system partition.

If you want to add further apps, just place the apk files in /sdcard/xXx/apps and flash NoLimits again. Or if you want to remove some, or all apps simple remove the apk's or remove the apps folder and flash NoLimits again.



xXx NoLimits Uninstaller

You could simply uninstall NoLimits with the Magisk Manager uninstaller but NoLimits is also changing Window animation speed and disable several Google Services in order to block wakelocks and disable Google Analytics for all installed apps. These changes can't be done systemless. These changes are persistent stored on the data partition.
The NoLimits uninstaller uninstall NoLimits and revert all changes back to stock settings.

Uninstaller Exceptions
GCam and Substratum apps are kept as people might still use these apps and want to keep them. They can easily be uninstalled like you do with any other user app.
xXx folder on the sdcard also remain as you might have stored files in there which you might want to keep. Simply remove it with a standard file explore.

How to use the NoLimits uninstaller?
It can be flashed via TWRP or Magisk Manager.
After flashing, the xXx NoLimits module will be removed and a NoLimits uninstaller Magisk module is in place instead.
After rebooting, the NoLimits uninstaller completes all remaining tasks and automatically remove itself. Don't touch it. This process could take up to 5 min. when you had Google Analytics removal option enabled. The time depends on the number of user apps you have in place.
I suggest to create a Nandroid backup in TWRP before running the uninstaller to be able to go back any time to the previous state.



Further improving user experience

The Kernel Tweaks option provide some further optimizations for better performance. I recommend to use the SmurfKernel by @pappschlumpf.
I'm running this combo with Kernel Tweaks enabled myself and my device is awesome fast, lag free and battery friendly.

Important Notes when using the Rom:

    - To change the theme go to settings > Vanced Settings.
  • xXx NoLimits must be flashed with TWRP
  • Working Magisk in place is a must requirement
  • Rom with basic android setup must be in place already
  • Dolby Atmos and Always on Display don't work yet on Android Pie
  • Flashing Xposed (Oreo only!):
    - With Xposed in place, your SaftyNet check will fail. No patch or workaround can solve this.
    - When you selected Xposed, after the first Android boot you need to to wait about 2 min. until the Xposed Installer App was installed and then reboot once to initiate the Xposed framework and get a green screen in the Xposed Installer.

Flash Instructions - xXx NoLimits OP6

Flash Instructions


xXx NoLimits is not a Rom itself but it's a Magisk Module which works exactly like all my previous Roms except that it does not include any OOS Rom components like Firmware, System, Vendor partitions or the Kernel.
In combination with the OOS stock Rom it still provides you with all options you might have used already with my previous Rom versions.

Must Requirements
  • OOS Stock Rom with basic android setup in place
  • A working Magisk in place
  • Flashing in TWRP only! (no inside Magisk flash support)

TWRP Source
All files and instructions to get TWRP up and running you will find here:
Special thanks to lollyjay for creating the instructions and joemossjr for the unofficial TWRP
https://forum.xda-developers.com/one...-twrp-t3801558

Prerequisite to flash the xXx NoLimits Rom - xXx.NoLimits.profile
Unfortunately, the current available TWRP don’t support Aroma Installers yet.
In order to still provide you with the possibility to choose your favorite options to be flashed the rom is using a file called “xXx.NoLimits.profile” as a reference for all your individual settings.

If you just flash the xXx NoLimits rom.zip without placing your individual edited xXx.NoLimits.profile to the sdcard default settings are used for flashing. This means you can just flash the xXx NoLimits rom but if you like to set your own preference presets you have to either edit the file or you extract the file from the rom.zip and copy it to the /sdcard or /sdcard/xXx folder on your device.

The xXx NoLimits installer detects automatically if you have the “xXx.NoLimits.profile” on your sdcard or not. If not it will use the presets from the profile included in the rom.zip. So the priority is the profile on your sdcard. If you install the rom via OTG you can also place the profile to the root of your usb-stick and this will have priority over the profile on the internal sdcard storage or the rom.zip.

Basic Instruction how to edit the “xXx.NoLimits.profile” you will find inside the file.
Just one more important information. If you are editing the profile on your Windows PC you must use Notepad++ otherwise you destroy the required file format.

You can download the xXx.NoLimits.profile here
