Don't spread FUD. Tillie has always been an anti-capitalist hacker, and their intentions have always been about freedom of information; they have always disclosed their hacks publicly on Twitter, so none of this is news.

The hacks have pretty much all been due to bad systems admin practices (default passwords, etc). Lawnchair has nothing to do with any of that.
Actually, there are a few that might disagree as not everyone has Twitter or follows what's on it, so when someone see something like this info ie. on Telegram for the first time as in my case, I do find it a bit of a concern.. so saying someone is spreading "FUD" when the info is there and the link to read about then yes it could make one wonder..

Well, I didn't know any of that, first time I even heard the name Tillie Kottmann, hence why I asked all those questions. Also to see what other users who were unaware of this think. Hardly spreading "fud" when I'm only trying to get people's thoughts, perhaps from some who are more in-the-know like you. Also criminal activity is criminal activity, his intentions may be good (for now), but no predicting what he might do in the future... Hence why I'm sceptical of Lawnchair and the new developers at the moment, until more info comes out.

Hello, I have just installed Lawnchair for the first time on my device with Android 11, I installed the alpha build I downloaded from their telegram channel and set it as recent provider with Quickswitch. It is working well, except for small bugs. I notice that is not possible, for the time being, to customize the icons of the folders, which is quite important for me. Is this feature missing because it's an alpha build? It will be added in the future?

I have Lawnchair 2 10.0 Alpha 8 installed and I can't get the notification counter to work, only dots...
Surely it's a bug because the version that is downloaded from the playstore works well but does not support the gestures of Android 10...
Can anyone see the notification counter in this release (10.0 Alpha 8)?

it is ALPHA. the playstore version is 2 years old abandoned software.

Sure I understand, but the option to show the counter is there and if it doesn't work you don't know if it's due to a launcher bug or something else...

1. If I click on the search bar (bubble?) it pulls up a search screen... how do I make the background dark and the text light on this screen? Or vice versa? Currently it's light background with grey text which is kinda hard to read..


2. How do I make it so the search finds apps on my device? Back on Stock with the real pixel launcher i could start typing "Pay" for example and it would find the PayPal app

So just tried v11 and it's still a bit too barebones for me. Though looking in the git repository it looks like a lot of the features I like will be in the next build.
Until then can I use v9 with android 11 ROMs? This is where I find it's getting a bit confusing. Are the new version numbers indicating the minimum android version or exact android version, i.e. is v9 to be used with at least android 9 or only android 9?

Hello, what the latest version of Lawnchair will work on my Google Pixel 5 phone? No matter if it is a stable, beta or alpha version. Is anyone able to give me the number of the latest version that will work for me and install on my phone? I currently have version 2.0.2589 installed and I could not install the newer version because the phone displays a message that it does not support this device, etc.

Just so you are aware, Tillie uses she/her pronouns.

    I know this is probably a 'naughty' question but can you kindly give a rough timescale for Pixel 2, for those of us who find your work very exciting? Hours, days, weeks or months? ?
    You should get a first taste of Pixel 2 features pretty soon ;)
