What is Edge Sense Plus?

Edge Sense Plus was initially just meant for the HTC U series. It let's you customize the squeeze action and adds some more squeeze gestures and features.
But with the Pixel2 and Pixel3 also coming with a squeezable frame I found a way to make it compatible too.
Since google locked active edge down to just only be able to start Assistant it will require a device rooted with magisk


Requirements

  • You need to run a STOCK based ROM, because Active Edge is broken on AOSP roms.
  • You need to be rooted with magisk to use it.
  • Install the Active Edge System Mod Magisk Module from the MagiskManager Repo and the EdgeSensePlus from the playstore and you are ready to go!

How does it work

To make it working on the Pixel3 I had to modify the SystemUIGoogle.apk that runs the ElmyraService (Service that processes the squeeze gestures).
I intercept the events and pass them to the EdgeSensePlus Application that starts the appropriate action then that you selected.
Some more adjustments were made, so the squeezing also works when you are in immersive mode, camera or when Google Assistant is deactivated/uninstalled.

Per app actions:

With the per app action, you can define different squeeze actions per app. So the chosen action will be executed dependent in what app you are currently are.



Double Squeeze: (Premium)

If you often accidentally trigger a short squeeze, that won't happen anymore if you map your desired action to the double squeeze gesture.
You can define a double squeeze interval, to ensure you are quick enough to trigger it every time.

Long Squeeze:

Missed a long squeeze action on your Pixel? Edge Sense Plus has it!

G-Sensor usage: (Premium)

If enabled, will be able to execute different actions depending on the current position of your device, whether it is flat or upright in your hand.
That way you can have six different squeeze gestures: short, long, doublepress in flat or upright device position.


Media control:

The media control will override your set squeeze actions while media is playing so you can control your media.
That includes play/pause, increase/decrease volume and skip to next and previous track.


Squeeze sounds:

Ever thought it would be funny if a squeeze of your Pixel 3 XL would make a sound, if it is a *click*, *oink* , *fart* or whatever you think of?
You can use any .mp3 file to make that happen!


Sidebar:

The Sidebar has 4 different panels, Applications, Shortcuts, Recent Apps (Premium), Quicksettings (Premium).
Panel colors are customizable

Instructions


You must be on at least Oreo 8.1 to to be able to use it. Root with Magisk is required since the magisk module is mandatory!
It is recommended to have a working TWRP backup in case something goes wrong. Check the FAQ for help too.
Like always: Flash on your own risk. I'm not responsible for any damaga to your device


  1. Flash the Magisk Module either in Magisk Manager or TWRP
  2. Install Edge Sense Plus
  3. Enjoy.



Downloads

Now also available via the MagiskManager Repo:


I recommend to install and update the Magisk Module directly via the MagiskManager repository directly in the MagiskManager app.
All releases will be also available on the GitHub repository

FAQ

Q: Will it also work on the Pixel 3?
A: Yes, it will. The Magisk module is multi device and version compatible. There is a separate thread on the Pixel 3 forum. though

Q: My device bootloops after flashing the magisk module.
A: Ensure you are on the latest Pixel 3 XL OTA. To get out of the bootloop, go to the magisk thread and install the magisk uninstaller and then reinstall magisk again.

Q: The magisk module zip is greyed out when I try to install it.
A: I have no explanation why it happens for some. Just flash it in TWRP instead of install it directly from the modules section in MagiskManager

I updated and flashed via Magisk Repo and rebooted.

"Android System Corrupt"
Just have confirmation about Pixel2XL and Pixel3 that it works so far.
But If it works on Pixel3 it should work on Pixel 3 XL too

But the magisk module does not modify system files, so your error message is weird.
If you flash the magisk uninstaller in TWRP and then flash magisk again, does the phone boot?
