Install activity launcher from playstore.

inside activity launcher search and launch:

cn.nubia.theme.local.ThemeActivity
this will show the preinstalled themes. choose "colorfull international" for round icons.

cn.nubia.gamecenter.settings.records.RecordSettingActivity
this will allow to switch the quality of the screenrecorder from sd to full hd.

com.qualcomm.qti.qcolor.QColorActivity
this will let you choose between all 8 color modes of the screen.

cn.nubia.factory.ChooseFpsActivity
here you can enable 120hz for the screen. It will apply once you leave the menu. standard settings and the refreshrate notification won't show the new value.
you can see that 120hz is working by dimming your screen and toggling between 144hz and 120hz and entering recents screen eachtime you changed the value. The brightness of the grey Background in the menu will be different.
To use the standard refreshrate settings again you must enable "default auto Fps" in the hidden menu.

cn.nubia.factory.FactoryTestQuickFan
here you can see the actual fan speed. Yes its + - 15k rpm.

You can create shortcuts to these menus by longpressing on the desired Activity.
Tested on global 4.05 rom.

there are allot more hidden features like battery percentage in status bar, fingerprint calibration settings and battery stats. But they don't seem to work properly.

cn.nubia.theme.local.ThemeActivity
this will show the preinstalled themes. choose "colorfull international" for round icons.[/U]

This right here makes such a huge difference for me, I normally don't like having icons on my home screen, I generally use Linux CLI Laucher and just quickly type in whatever app I want to open, but because you can't change the launcher on this phone, I'm stuck using the default one, so I only have some icons in the dock, and one of those icons is YouTube Studio, which uses a gear icon, and all the rest of the icons that were applied by default for the other dock apps I use are all square so I just had one random icon that didn't match, and this solved that.

This is a golden find right here, really good job on this.

Just to confirm that the 120Hz is real, can you go to https://testufo.com/ and see what results you get?

Also, can you post the output of "adb shell dumpsys display" ?

Guys I changed my theme and I now have the rounded icons. If I want to go back to the default square icons, how do I do that? I deleted cache and data for the launcher but it didn't change the icons back to the default square ones. Any idea?

I attached the screenshots. It doesn't list any theme or icons that were the original square ones. Any ideas how to go back to the original stock ones?

"simple clouds" enables the squares. and if you mean they looked differently whic i can't tell i think only a factory reset will restore.

Wait I don't get it, how does changing to round icons make your life so much easier?

I think there's a normal non-hidden interface for screen recording quality under more features > supersnap

Worth noting that you don't need to install activity launcher or anything, really, if you have adb (which my device came with by default(!) but you can get through developer options)

Just make sure to separate package name from activity name, e.g. :

am start-activity -n cn.nubia.theme.local/.ThemeActivity
am start-activity -n com.qualcomm.qti.qcolor/.QColorActivity
etc.

(also works as "adb shell am start-activity -n cn.nubia.theme.local/.ThemeActivity"), etc

I'm sure my guide is easier
and you would'nt be able to guess any of these things inside adb. so you need the app in first place to find these things anyways. i dont understand what you try to prove. It doesnt make sense to use adb for such easy things you can do inside an app. it's like you're saying "you dont have to go into settings to turn on wifi i can do it with adb" :silly:

you're just jelly i found this stuff with some guys on telegram and there is no credit for you. you would'nt find anything in your adb if i didnt post this. get your mind right before you say this is worthless. my phone didnt come with adb i don't know whats wrong with your device... don't even bother replying it makes no sense and i will not go further in detail with you.

Wow. No good deed goes unpunished, eh?

Nobody's trying to steal anyone's credit. I'm just saying that some folks like myself who do not want to install anything (so as to keep the device pristine as possible) would maybe like to know of alternate ways to trigger activity. The am way works anywhere, not just on the Nubia activities.

Let go of the jealousy and the flames, man. Just trying to help people out. Take your credit, upvote yourself, be happy. The world has enough strife and complication already to get into pointless bickering.

i didnt start the fire (...Worth noting that you don't need to install activity launcher...)
as you see it's worth something, or there were no such commands for you to type inside adb.

made me a lil angry, it's fine.

I don't have the phone yet, however I'm already trying to catch up.

So are all those icons change possibilities available? they look pretty good.

Yes. You can follow the instructions on this thread to gain access to the hidden themes already present on the device. Also, you can download the theme.apk app from the Chinese ROM that allows additional options https://forum.xda-developers.com/nu...d-magic-5-software-limitations-t4088015/page4

    yes but it doesnt allow 1080 p you can see this by checking details of the Recorded video. it will only be full hd once you choose it in the hidden menu.
