No update required for October OTA but a fresh install is required. Just disable the Substratum overlays then completely remove the Magisk module for this mod and reboot. Once you reboot flash the Magisk module and reboot. You can now enable the Substratum overlays and reboot if needed.

Android 12 stable is released for pixel devices. Are you going to update pixel tweaks? I would really appreciate it. 🥺

I don't have a pixel device to test with ATM. Once I get my P6 next week I'll see if I can port it over, but no promises. Also, the built in adaptive colors on A12 will likely cause some major changes to this mod. We will see how it all plays out in the next couple of weeks.

Actually, if someone on stable A12 could pull the following three apks and send them my way I would greatly appreciate it.

SystemUIGoogle.apk
NexusLauncherRelease.apk
framework-res.apk

First two can be found in /system/system_ext/priv-app/...

The last one is in /system/framework/...

Thank you in advanced.

Looking at this now...I will have to rebuild everything from the ground up for Android 12. Expect small incremental releases in order to put as much as A11 Pixel Tweaks on A12, but that's if I even get something working at all. I'm going to focus solely on the pixel launcher ATM and try to re-introduce some of the tweaks as I figure them out. So don't expect anything for Android 12 anytime soon. There is a lot of work to be done.

PS. If anyone figures out how to hijack the adaptive colors before me please share the how to. Would love to insert a color picker into that.

I only need the option to remove at a glance from home screen because with new widgets it looks terrible and messes the look of everything

so it would be nice if this was the first option that you could port 😄

A quick update for those waiting for A12 support. First I will only maintain one thread once I release the A12 mod. It will be located in the Pixel 6 Pro threads. I will put a link in the OP once it's released. So far I got most of it working with the exception of statusbar colors, search bar removal, at a glance removal and a few color issues with the light theme on the launcher. I am going to focus on fixing the color issues on the light theme and on the removal of search and at a glance. Once I get that sorted I will post it.

I just released this mod for A12. It is based on the November OTA for the Pixel 6 Pro. As of right now I have no confirmation if it will work on any other Pixel device. Link below.

    Okay guys, I just want to say that lately I've been burned out from android modding/theming and I just have no drive to keep doing it. Having said that, I will be taking a break from xda with the hope that I at least have it in me to keep updating this mod for every OTA. If what I saw on Android 12 DP1 is any indication of the changes needed for my mod to work on the official Android 12 release it will be a simple port; however, if there are dramatic changes needed to my mod I can not guarantee that I will continue with it past Android 11. Only time will tell, but I just need a break at the moment. Thank you all for using this mod and please continue to enjoy it!

    No update required for October OTA but a fresh install is required. Just disable the Substratum overlays then completely remove the Magisk module for this mod and reboot. Once you reboot flash the Magisk module and reboot. You can now enable the Substratum overlays and reboot if needed.

    will this tweak work on A12 DP3?
    No. A12 will need an update. I will try to support the official A12 release once it's out.

    Q & A

    Q: Will this mod work on other Pixel Devices?
    A: Each Pixel device starting with Pixel 2 has its own thread. Please check in the corresponding device forums.

    Q: There is no thread in the Pixel 3a or Pixel 3aXL forums, where can I find the mod for this device?
    A: The mod is exactly the same as the one for the Pixel 3(XL), go there for download.

    Q: There is no thread on the Pixel 4a or Pixel 4a 5g forums, is this compatible with those devices?
    A: Unknown, I have no way of testing on those two devices. If you would like to become a tester send me a private message. You must know how to use ADB and willing to suffer force closures.

    Q: When will this mod be compatible with the Pixel 4a and/or Pixel 4a 5g?
    A: I need someone on the latest firmware for those devices to send me the Pixel Launcher apk. It is located in /system/system_ext/priv-app/NexusLauncherRelease/. Once this file is sent to me I will be able to make this mod compatible with those devices.
