About xXx NoLimits

xXx NoLimits is an OxygenOS Stock ROM enhancement for
the OP8/OP8pro with OOS/H2OS based on Android 10




xXx NoLimits is not a traditional Rom as it does not include any OOS Rom components like Firmware, System, Vendor partitions or the Kernel. It's actually a Magisk Module which enhance your OOS/H2OS ROM base with a comprehensive set of complementary apps, functions, tweaks and debloats.

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 a OOS based 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
- Working Magisk in place
- Flashing via Magisk Manager or TWRP (Magisk Manager strongly recommended)

My focus with this Rom enhancement is to provide a smooth and snappy user experience with a decent battery life with selected additional functions, tweaks and mods which, for my taste, are missing in the stock OOS Rom.

This is just a hobby and not a commercial project. I developed this for my daily driver device and I share it with you.

xXx System Tweaks

I added several tweaks on different levels to provide a fast and snappy user experience.
These tweaks also improve multitasking and maintain the system to be constantly fast.
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
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 of debloat options. From not debloated at all (like OOS stock) to max debloated.
The advantage of debloating is to reduce background load which potentially let Android gain more speed and save battery as less apps and services are running and leaves even more RAM to hold your favorite apps in background.
The downside is that you might miss certain apps or functionality if you overdo it.
Default setting is system less debloating. You can set IrreversibleDebloat = 1 to really delete selected bloat from the system partition but this is definetly not recommended anymore for Android 10 or higher.

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.

if you disable or uninstall NoLimits, all systemized apps are gone but remain as user apps to ensure apps like launcher etc. remain working.



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

Flash Instructions - xXx NoLimits OP8pro

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


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/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
  • Currently the OP8pro don't require the Overlayfix Magisk module by Zackptg5, but if required for any future OOS version, please note the following information

  • 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.

New Version 11.0 is available for Download

How to flash?
Read the flashing/update instructions in Post #3


Changelog for v11.0
  • v11.0 is the initial release for the OP8pro to be found here, but still fully work on the OP7pro
    - Anyhow, from now on I only own the OP8pro and therefore I'm not being able to test and fix issues for any of my previous devices
    - "No Support anymore for other devices" means that the latest version might work on other devices, but you have to help yourself in case you experience any issues.
    - I still left my xda thread for the OP7, OP6 and OP5 device family open, so users can still post there and help each other.
  • Added a new option to force a fixed low or high display refresh rate
    - Option is named DisplayRefreshRate =
    - 0 = Do nothing
    - 1 = 60hz on OP8 & OP7 device family
    - 2 = 120hz on OP8pro / 90hz on OP7T & OP7pro
  • Added tons of new debloat items to cover the new stuff on the OP8pro
  • Updated AdAway to v5.0.2
  • Updated OverlayFix by Zackptg5 to v2.1
  • Updated Google Dialer app to v47
  • Several other optimizations under the hood
  • xXx.NoLimits.profile is on version 55 and auto update itself from previous versions
