If anyone can provide me with framework-res.apk, SystemUIGoogle.apk, and NexusLauncherRelease.apk from Pixel 4 or Pixel 5 families I would greatly appreciate it. They need to be from January 2022 OTA.

I'm on Android 11, Pixel 5.

I downloaded Pixel.Tweaks.Helper.v1.0.

But I am unable to see the option to set background colors?

Did I miss any steps, or?

    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.
