Been settled in with my 4a, but just cracked the screen. Had to make sure GB was 11 compatible before switching to the 5a. Had no idea this was available.

Amazing stuff. Was reading some other posts of ppl that find this mod a MUST. Got me thinking...have I really been using GB since Galaxy Nexus? GB on the GN!? 1st device w/ no physical nav, 2nd(?) device with 4g (following the droid bionic(?)), few hour battery. Yes, that ol thing.

Anyways, I think it's been that long. If it's been available that long, then I AM remembering correctly.

Much appreciated!

Yeah this dev is synonymous with Xposed and has been around for a long time. Feel very lucky to have been able to enjoy his work for so long and it is amazing how he has kept it going and added to it over the years!

I also had a Galaxy Nexus and have fond memories of it. Used to have a ROM on it from Jellybean days called JBSourcery that was amazing! So many unique mods and tweaks. The old glory days of flashing lol

Hi
I have added the 'ringer mode' tile in the quicksettings
My device (oneplus 8t) has an alert slider which controls the ringer mode, and the above tile works only when the slider is set to 'ring' mode
Is there way to make in work in any position of the slider?
Thanks in advance

@C3C076

Sorry if I have mentioned this before but is there any chance of adding the feature to hide the VPN security warning that is stuck in the bottom of quick settings when using an app like Adguard? Some custom roms have the option to hide the warning and there is an xposed module called dark tricks that had that functionality but doesn't seem to work on A11.


Thanks!
I too would like to request this feature. Im using CloudFlare's 1.1.1.1 and the lock/key icon wastes space in status bar. Im less annoyed by the info under the quicksettings tiles.

New stable Magisk (24.0) is out. Has anyone been running Magisk Canary with Zygisk-LSPosed and GB on A11, or is GB only compatible with Riru?

It works for me on A11 with Riru-LSPosed-Magisk 23, but I'm starting to feel like I'm getting behind on a lot of advances if I don't update what I can update.

GB 11.0.5 is running fine with Magisk 24001 and LSPosed-v1.6.5-6327-zygisk-release.
may i ask what is/was the correct order when switching to lsposed-zygisk?

i guess it is ..
- backup gravitybox settings & screenshot gravitybox-module-scope in lsposed,
- disable lsposed-riru (from magisk manager), thus disabling gravitybox (and other modules),
- enable zygisk in magisk manager, thus disabling riru core as well, or disable riru-core manually as well,
- reboot,
- uninstall lsposed-riru,
- install lsposed-zygisk,
- reboot (?),
- enable gravitybox within lsposed, configure correct scopes just like before (checkmarks),
- run gravitybox and check if everything works just like before, also other modules if any,
- uninstall riru-core?

or a i missing something important? just wanna "understand" the workflow with all the dependencies, so it’ll be a smoother process once lsposed-zygisk(-stable) is out. :)

My pie control button are shifted upward relative to icons actually displayed. I'm on Fairphone 4 wondering if some option I could tweak to align them? Maybe the thick status bar is causing this?

There is also "Verbose logs" section in EdXposed Manager / Logs. You should look there as it is where everything about EdXposed initialization is logged.
Whenever I try to install the riru edx module it says 'riru not installed' (riru26 is installed). Someone somewhere else said to use riru21.3 but when i try to install that (or many other older versions from git) magisk says "Unzip error". I have tried different combinations but always get one error or the other.

I thought the zip error would be an easy fix, but nothing is making a difference.

I can't use my phone without my trivial little GB mods, so I'm stuck on my cracked 4a until I can figure this out for my 5a.

Help, someone, please!

probably a re-qustion
Interesting. This means SDK number is still 11 on DP as otherwise module would refuse to work. Anyway, I have finally found some time to update my OP7Pro daily driver to Android 11 just to find out how many features of GravityBox are broken on it. I am not happy about running this on my daily driver as it feels so incomplete so will have to find some time for improving OxygenOS compatibility in the first place, before digging into Android 12 (I have Pixel 3a which I suppose can use for that?) Free time is luxury for me these days so I am not brave enough to give at least some estimate. Just to assure all I am still planning to continue with this project but things may not go as fast as my users were used to years ago.


In GravityBox QS Management, within screen where you choose tiles there are 2 checkboxes. The 2nd one controls protection mode. Tiles that are marked as protected are disabled when device is locked. SO instead of disabling the whole QS, you can have some tiles blocked and some others not.
@C3C076 do you use A12 yourself or you are still on A11?
What is the "worst case timetable" for GB v12 release?

I'm not too familiar with setting up gravity box with notifications. I'm curious to how you can do it is there a way I can set up a text app to override the silence mode and use noise or blinking LED or everything or something so I can have my whole system on silent mode and still have an app show up. Also is there a way to make your Gmail notification show up for just one email address that you want or maybe multiples?

Yes. I also found it too. As I installed A12 and it turned out that GB no longer works this many attempts and searching for substitutes I gave up and returned to A11. Only because of the lack of GB. GRAVITYBOX I need due to network mode shortcuts (2G, 3G, LTE), Long Tap Back to Kill App, the possibility of changing the color of the navigation bar icons, changes of QS sizes and several other things that can not be replaced with nothing.I am waiting impatiently for the A12 version.

    READ THIS POST CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING ANY FURTHER

    Introduction
    The app utilizes Riru-EdXposed Magisk module which uses original Xposed Framework API created by rovo89.

    !!!!!! WARNING !!!!!!
    This module utilizes EdXposed Framework which is still in early development stage and may contain bugs or might not be fully compatible with the system of your Android device. I take no responsibility for any issues arising from using GravityBox with EdXposed and strongly recommend creating a full backup of your device before activating the module.

    Requirements
    - Magisk v21 or later
    - Riru v23 or later (Magisk module)
    - EdXposed Manager (Application)
    - Avoid using Resource hooking support if possible (Can be disabled in EdXposed Manager settings)

    Installation
    This procedure assumes you have working Magisk installation.
    1) Install Riru module in Magisk Manager
    2) Install and run EdXposed Manager app and download Riru-EdXposed module v5.1.3.x or later (currently Alpha/Canary)
    3) Install downloaded Riru-EdXposed module in Magisk Manager
    5) Reboot and open EdXposed Manager app to check if EdXposed works and is active
    6) Install GravityBox and enable it in EdXposed Manager
    7) Reboot and profit

    Required whitelisted packages
    In case you use blacklist/whitelist functionality of EdXposed make sure all the following packages are whitelisted (not blacklisted respectively) for full GravityBox experience.
    - Android System (android)
    - System UI (com.android.systemui)
    - Call Management (com.android.server.telecom)
    - Download Manager (com.android.providers.downloads)
    - Phone (com.android.dialer or com.google.android.dialer)
    - Phone Services (com.android.phone)
    - Phone (com.android.incallui) (OxygenOS only)
    - Keyboard app (e.g. Gboard) in order to be able to use "Volume key cursor control" feature
    It is strongly recommended to use Whitelist functionality for better performance as EdXposed hooks only smaller amount of processes.
    In case of running multiple Xposed modules consult their whitelist requirements with the devs of module.


    Feature highlight
    --- Lockscreen tweaks
    --- QuickSettings tile management with additional tiles
    --- Statusbar tweaks
    --- Navigation bar tweaks
    --- Pie controls
    --- Power tweaks
    --- Display tweaks
    --- Phone tweaks
    --- Media tweaks
    --- Hardware/navigation key actions
    --- GravityBox Actions - interface for 3rd party apps
    --- Notification control (per-app notification LED/sounds/vibrations)
    --- Fingerprint launcher
    --- Advanced tuning of Framework and System UI parameters
    ... and many more

    Compatibility
    GB's main concept is to make most of the preference changes to be done on the fly without need to reboot a device to achieve custom-ROM like experience.
    This means it is not possible to "completely deactivate" particular feature if it causes trouble on your device or if you installed GB because you want to use only one particular feature you can't find elsewhere.
    This results in issues on ROMs/devices that have parts that are diverting from default Android implementation too much, or are running heavily modified custom ROMs.
    If you experience weird issues after installing GB, even if you didn't activate a particular feature, it is not because of GB is broken, it is because it is not compatible with your ROM.
    It is very similar to a situation when you installed ROM built from source for Nexus to some Xperia device - it won't work.

    GB is a complex module and is not suitable for 1 purpose scenario. This means, if you are running custom ROM built from source, and you are missing a certain feature, your best option is to go ask creators of those ROMs to implement those additional features. Supplementing missing features on well-known custom ROMs built from source by installing xposed modules (especially complex ones) is definitely not a good way to go and can cause more trouble than good.
    GB being a complex module, it shouldn't be combined with other complex modules often racing for the same goal. They can conflict/fight on the same playground and there's no way you can deterministically say which one's going to win. They can even lose both.

    So in summary:
    - this module is designed to run on vanilla or close-to-vanilla Android 11 (AOSP)
    - officially supports devices/systems it was developed and tested on
    - Samsung, HTC, MIUI, Xperia, Lenovo, etc. are NOT supported. It is not guaranteed this module will work on these at all so try at your own risk. This module is simply too complex to support all kind of ROM brands that were vastly modified by vendors.
    - DO NOT USE WITH CUSTOM ROMS MODULE WAS NOT EXPLICITLY DESIGNED FOR
    - I will not implement any exceptions that will adapt this module to a specific custom ROM. Please, do understand, it is unmanageable.
    - I will not provide any support for devices violating these compatibility rules

    GravityBox [R] has been designed for and tested on
    - Pixel 3a running Google OS
    - OnePlus 7Pro running Oxygen OS 11

    Reporting bugs
    If possible, please use Github issue reporting interface for reporting bugs.
    If you experience problems with certain feature, provide the full-detailed info that can help me
    to reproduce the bug and attach logs that can be exported from EdXposed Manager app.
    Real-time logging can be performed by using ADB: adb logcat -s EdXposed-Bridge

    In case you experience SystemUI crashes or other apps Force Closing, or device soft reboots, attach logcat from time
    crash occurs. (use adb logcat *:E or your favorite logcat app from Play Store).
    Please, don't attach big logs. Only the portion where error is clearly seen.
    Disable all other xposed modules before reproducing bug to make sure it is really GravityBox related
    Remember, this app was developed and tested on one particular device so it is not guaranteed that it will work flawlessly on yours.

    Multilanguage support
    Volunteers are welcome to translate GravityBox to other languages.
    Preferred way is to use GitHub interface to fork your own copy of GravityBox, make changes and then send pull request against original repository.
    Anoter way is to simply download this file: https://github.com/GravityBox/GravityBox/raw/r/GravityBox/src/main/res/values/strings.xml
    Use Notepad++ to edit strings and then send me edited file so I can include translations into next release.

    Source code
    GravityBox is opensource. Sources are available in my gihub: https://github.com/GravityBox/GravityBox/tree/r
    If you're a dev and have some ideas for additional features, feel free to fork it, work on it and send the pull requests.

    Support development
    Coding, maintaining and supporting this project costs me a lot of my precious time. If you find this project useful, you are more than welcome to support its development via donation. This form of support is meant to compensate for my time dedicated to the community + eventually, help me to afford newer device to keep up with AOSP evolution thus providing continuous support as Android evolves. Thanks!

    Info about premium features and PayPal transaction ID verification system
    1) Those who supported development via PayPal donation can use their PayPal transaction ID to unlock premium features.
    As of v2.9.5, there are three premium features:
    - Backup/restore of GB settings.
    - Ultimate notification control
    - Advanced Tuning

    2) If you contributed to the project by providing translations, code fragments, or by any other way
    you can apply for a free transaction ID by contacting me via PM.

    3) Be aware that there's a system that can identify potential transaction ID
    abuse. E.g. when one ID is being used by more users. Such IDs will get blocked automatically.
    In case you own more devices, you can use one transaction ID on up to 10 of them.

    4) If you are using your own custom builds of GB for personal use, you will get hash mismatch
    upon verifying your ID as verification system accepts requests only from official releases of GB.
    If you want to be able to verify IDs with your custom build, contact me via PM so I can setup
    a special hash for your build.
    If you are using a custom build that you provide for broader group of users (e.g. in a custom ROM),
    it is necessary to ask for new hash everytime your new custom version is released for public use.
    These rules are based on mutual trust so please, do not violate them.
