Hi ,

Apologise. I only installed a version and works fine except weather. However, what's the difference between red and blue? Is it purely just drawer colour or something that I think I read.

How do I know what version I am currently on, red or blue?

I am not rooted if that helps in which I'll need.

Thanks!

Does rootless bridge also use nexuslauncher in its package? Because if it does, the blue ruthless is blocking it. Cmiiw

Thanks I'll just download the latest red version then and install it. Will the weather work straight out or do I need to do something? As currently it's not working I just have the time.

First time in 10 years not using HTC phone so struggling a bit with this p20 ha.

Cheers

When you will install then you will get a popup for a extension named pixel bridge, install it ,if it doesn't get installed then you have a pixel launcher installed in your phone remove it and then check your SD/internal/download folder and install bridge

    Hello there!
    I started a project based on @azaidi's Rootless Pixel Launcher. I have cherry picked some features from various developers and added few of mine to create a fully working and customisable launcher. This launcher also includes the new P style dock by Google (as seen in the Android P DP1 Launcher).
