About xXx NoLimits

xXx NoLimits is an OxygenOS Stock ROM enhancement for
the OP7pro with OOS/H2OS based on Android 10




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 via Magisk Manager or TWRP (if decryption works)

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.
6/8/12 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.
xXx Tweaks includes:
WiFi channel bonding for the 2.4GHz frequency
ART Optimization
Detaching of modded apps
Disable ZRam & ZSwap
Disable Google Play Wakelocks for better battery life
LMK Tweaks to use all RAM down to about 700MB left for best multitasking
Rebuild Dalvik Cache
Universal GMS Doze
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.
Default setting is system less debloating. You can set IrreversibleDebloat = 1 to really delete selected bloat from the system partition.

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 Digital is also available as an option and work side by side with Viper and the Stereo mod.

Boot Animations
xXx NoLimits includes already a selection of different boot animations. You can also use your own bootanimation. In this case, simply copy the bootanimation.zip file to the /sdcard/xXx/ folder and set the option BootanimationinxXxFolder = 1 in the xXx.NoLimits.profile. Make sure all other boot animation options are set to 0 and that the filename is exactly bootanimation.zip.
With this setup you can replace the bootanimation.zip file any time and it will be in place with a simple reboot. No reflashing required in this case.

Bootloop Protection
If the android boot process takes longer than 3 minutes, the NoLimits module will be automatically uninstalled and the device will reboot without NoLimits.
This way you can riskless enable debloat options which might end up in a bootloop. If your device stuck in a bootloop because of NoLimits, simply wait max 3 minutes and it will reboot again without NoLimits.

YouTube Vanced self-healing
The Play Store is randomly checking if there are installed apps which are available in the Play store. If the Play Store find YouTube or YouTube vanced (same signature), it will add it to its database. From that point on, YouTube will be listed among all apps to be updated next time.
If you have enabled YouTube Vanced in the profile, NoLimits will check every minute and remove any YouTube reference from the Play Store database. Also, if YouTube was accidentally updated already, it will be automatically reverted to YouTube Vanced again.
In case you see YouTube listed in the Play Store, simply wait max. 1 minute and it should disappear again. If this don’t happen, check if your device still have root access, as without root, the NoLimits script stop working. In this case, simply reboot android and everything should be fixed again in about 1 minute after the reboot.

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.



How to uninstall NoLimits?

NoLimits will be completely uninstalled without residue when you select the respective waste bin symbol under the Magisk Manager "Modules" menu and reboot android.
The removal process triggers an uninstaller script which will revert Window animation speed, several disabled Google Services and Analytics items as well as all apps prior installed by NoLimits



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.

Latest xXx NoLimits Download
xXx NoLimits follow an unified "one installer fits all" concept.

Latest xXx NoLimits version is still working on this device and can be downloaded here in my OP8pro thread

Why is there no dedicated xXx NoLimits version for this device?

xXx NoLimits follow an unified "one installer fits all" concept and even I currently own the OP8pro only, I still take care that NoLimits remains compatible with older OnePlus devices.

Even though, this is a hobby project and I try to keep my time investments low. Therefore, my main efforts are focused on my daily driver which is the OP8pro.

I still keep my xda thread open for older devices, so that users can still help each other in the respective NoLimits thread.

Flash Instructions

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
  • NoLimits Installer should be flashed per Magisk Manager
    - On Android 10 it's highly recommended to flash via Magisk Manager


Prerequisite to flash xXx NoLimits - xXx.NoLimits.profile
Unfortunately, todays TWRP don’t support Aroma Installers anymore.
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


Flashing/Update Use Cases for xXx NoLimits

Important Information
  • If you remove or disable the Overlayfix Magisk module by Zackptg5 with NoLimits 10.x or higher in place, NoLimits will be removed as well during the next reboot to prevent the black screen issue. Then simply flash NoLimits again via Magisk Manager.
  • When flashing a new or other OOS ROM version with NoLimits 10.x or higher is in place, NoLimits and the OverlayFix module by Zackptg5 will be automatically removed during first boot after flashing the Rom.

Important Android 10 Information and Instructions
  • Generic Android 10 Upgrade/Installation Guide
  • Why Titanium and Root Explorers can't debloat anymore on Android 10
  • Coming from Pie, you need to uninstall NoLimits before you first boot to A10
  • Coming from Pie, you should remove all systemized apk files located in the /sdcard/xXx/apps folder to avoid bootloops
  • Coming from Pie, you should remove all theme overlays from Swift installer or Substratum
  • Use Magisk 20.3 or higher for Android 10
  • Wondering why OnePlus apps like Weather, FileManger, Wallpaper, etc. won't be debloated even though it's selected? Flash NoLimits via Magisk Manager and they get debloated!

Awesome! Thank you for not forgetting about us 6t users! You're the best

---------- Post added at 04:47 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:25 PM ----------

Any specific settings recommended for the included Google camera? Is there a OnePlus 6t settings file needed? It's a different version than I'm used to. Google Lens seems nowhere to be found
