- Tasker integration for contextual navbar
- Easy to setup
- No root or xposed required

Compatibility
- Not working on ResurrectionRemix, Beanstalk, AospExtended or anything that uses DirtyUnicorns smartbar (Need testers)
- Not working on Touchwiz (S8 is partially supported), EMUI, LG UX
- Working on Android 7, 7.1, O preview
- Working on LinageOS
- Working on Nexus devices
- Working on Sony Xperia devices

So After opting-in to the beta test there seems to be a regional restriction.
I even tried using opera vpn but still says not available. Is it working on oneplus3 OOS?

Kindly write the command here which we need to give to grant permission, tried both terminal emulator and adb, but unable to do it,

I'm guessing it's this:

adb shell pm grant xyz.paphonb.systemuituner android.permission.WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS

Thanks for making this app, OP. Check out my series of tutorials for potential uses of this: https://www.xda-developers.com/tag/android-o/

As for how to add custom icons, I figured it out here: https://www.xda-developers.com/how-to-add-custom-icons-to-the-navigation-bar-in-android-o/ and OP implemented it in his app ;)

What's the error you're getting?

That's weird. I have all the countries ticked.
Can you try again? I'll try removing the beta restriction.

Don't enter "adb shell" in your command. Type "su" then "pm grant xyz.paphonb.systemuituner android.permission.WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS".

OP's app works perfectly. It's actually incredible how well-polished it is for an alpha app. Tasker support right out of the gate? Hell yes.

so I just type "su pm grant xyz.paphonb.systemuituner android.permission.WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS" ?

I figured it out
su ,enter
then the rest ,enter
thanks

Yup. "su" first, then the pm grant command. Note that this is only if your device is rooted. If your device is unrooted, then you can enter "adb shell pm grant xyz.paphonb.systemuituner android.permission.WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS" all at once in the command prompt/terminal on your computer.

I'm rooted running Lineage OS 14.1 on a ZTE Axon 7. I installed this app from the Play Store and followed the instructions to copy the command and paste it into Terminal Emulator. When I pasted and ran it in TE, it says /system/bin/sh: adb: not found

Ideas? Does TE need root permission and if so, how to make it ask? It didn't when I opened it or when I ran the command.

Please read the few posts before you! You have to remove "adb shell" when you are entering the command in Terminal Emulator. Also, you have to type "su" as your first command to grant TE root access.

    The latest beta release (0.5.0) will include Tasker event plugin, which allows you to trigger Tasker event when pressing button.
    This is a heavily requested feature, so I will post a tutorial here about how to use it.

    1. Configure a custom button as you would, but this time, set button type to "Tasker event" instead of "Keycode".
    2. Open tasker and press add in profiles tab
    3. Select "Event"
    4. Select Plugin -> Custom Navigation Bar
    5. Click on pencil icon to edit event
    6. Select the profile you have the button set up. If you set up the button you want in "Navigation bar" section of the app, select "None"
    7. Select the button that you have set up. If the option is greyed out, check if you done step 1 correctly
    8. Save the event and add an action for that tasker profile.

    Note:
    When pressing the button first time, if a dialog pops up, select "Custom Navigation Bar" and press "Always"

    But remember, this is a large feature that requires many changes in the application code base. It might be buggy or breaks something.
    And thanks for all your kind supports. :)
