HUGE UPDATES INCOMING!

MARS will be available over GitHub Releases so You can easily Download ready-to-use Zips of MARS for Magisk. Also included are now OTA Updates for MARS over Magisk and the focus Changed to GSIs again. Use PHH AOSP 12 or PIXEL EXPIERENCE 12 by Ponces to unleash Your Xperias 😇
Hello, I have been following this project for quite some time. I would like to install it but I dont fully understand how the gears work. What do they do and what is the most reccomended way to use them? Thanks. :)

Edit: So I am guessing that if I install 1_MARS_SOM_BASE-GEAR_FIRST and 2_MARS_SOM_OVERLAY-GEAR_SECOND I will get Gear 3. So I will have the Base SOM and the system overlays?

I've tried different gears with Pixel Experience 12 (vndklite) and the current AOSP vendor image for my Xperia 5. Most of the things work fine. Without MARS, there is no automatic brightness for the display. With Gears 2 and 3, there is a button to activate auto brightness, but it has no effect. But this is the only major issue beside that the background settings crash as soon as I try to open the live background which are not so important for me.

Thanks for Your Feedback! Auto Brightness will be fixed soon. I'm in contact with PHH.
MARS will be unified again with the next Releases. I started from Scratch and cleaned out some Things. Update will come the next 24 Hours for the latest Pixel Expierence Release...

    It's really crazy to see almost no Development at all anymore... After doing that so many Years and after trying to create something new with My Patches, since back in the Nexus 6 Days am i hoping this one here will lasts for a long Time! We will see how the future of Android will look like...

    One Thing You could Me support with: Google Camera! Thats what a Pixel like Projects needs to be complete...

    BETA2 coming. Fixed all Bugs on Stock. Optimized a lot under the hood. Added Audio functions such as Monitor Rotation (Channels change on base of the actual rotation state), Google Pixel UI with Black Dark Mode, Audio Recorder, Pixel Launcher, Theme Manager and so on. Hope You will enjoy it! A Video Preview is also incoming!

    (PS: Please avoid using the Gesture Navigation since it's broken with the Pixel Launcher. QuickSwitch for Magisk may fix that, or you can try to install a third Launcher from the Play Store. Sorry for that!)
