I am not responsible for anything bad that happens to your device. Worst case senerio, you lost all your data or your device end up bricked, in which case I am not to blame. As long as you are content with that, get on to flashing and don't forget to hit thanks.

What is this?

This is a universal mod for Pixel Experience. No more hasttle of modifying individual files again and again after each update. Just flash this mod and voila feel the Pixel. One mod for all the nightlies of all the roms based on LineageOS Source Code.

How does it work?

This mod is based on layers/overlay which is directly coded in aosp source. For noobs who don't know overlay, think of it as a theme that works without any theme manager. For more info read it in the official thread here.
  • Framework Overlay - Replaces Teal UI with Pixel Blue UI, enables Round Icons, and adds Nighlight QuickTile.
  • Settings Overlay - Replaces Default Icon with Pixel Settings Icon.
  • DocumentsUI Overlay - Replaces Default Icon with Round Icon.
  • NexusIcons Overlay - Adds more Round Icons to Pixel Launcher.
  • Tweak Prop - To enable Google Assistant and Blue UI in Gboard.

  • @TheStrix - For giving us Nougat and LineageOS
  • Google - For bringing Android and Pixel
  • Sony - For overlay/layers contribution
  • Xiaomi - For manufacturing the device
Version Information :-
Status: Alpha
Version: v2
Based: 7.x.x

Why do you even need this if you're using ANY custom ROM? Just use PixelUI theme with Substratum, or use it in Legacy mode if you're running AOSP or LineageOS.

Well for starters, it does not enable round icons, it does not work perfectly all the time, it does not chamge the settings icon, it does not change the files icon etc etc.

Besides this is a better way, all you need to do is flash one zip file. It also has build.prop tweak for google assistant and blue ui gboard. Use it and then compare it to substratum.

And the biggest issue lineageos does not support substratum and in legacy mode it does not work properly.
