What is this?

These are some Magisk modules that adds the following cool features to any Pixel 3, 4, 5 and 6 device running Android 12:

  • Enable/Disable Google Sans font system wide
  • Adds Icon Styles and Icon Shapes overlays from Android 11
  • Fonts options

  • Enable Voice access for all Pixel devices
  • Navigation bar options (reduce keyboard bottom space size, completely remove NavBar, invert layout*, set back gesture height*)

* -> These features are only available if "SystemUI module" is installed.

Downloads:

Addon_Features_for_Pixel_Visualizer_Fix.zip -> Install this module first (if you haven't installed it before). Afterwards, reboot your device and wait for about 1 minute before doing anything else. Really, I'm not joking, install, reboot and just wait. You see, this "Visualizer fix" module is only needed in order to add a missing permission to SystemUI. It only has to be installed once (obviously, if in the future you clean flash the ROM, you'll have to flash it again or you'll be missing that required permission). And, since it's only needed once, this module is deleted from the system after doing what it has to do. So, it's normal that you won't see it as installed after installing everything.

Android_12_Addon_Features_for_Pixel_V13.zip -> "Harmless" module that works on any Pixel device running on STOCK ROM, The features marked with an * above options, on Rom Control app, won't do anything if the SystemUI module, shared next, isn't installed.

Android_12_SystemUI_for_Addon_Features_V13.zip -> This is "THE" module! This module adds all xml and smali changes into SystemUI and framework-res. Without this module the "exclusive features" won't work. Also, this module could be responsible for breaking boot if it fails to work at your end. I've ran several tests on my device (a Pixel 4a) and didn't face any issues but, since this module replaces stock SystemUI and framework-res for modded ones, you could run into problems if some other module tries to do the same or it's simply incompatible with it.

Addon_Features_for_Pixel_More_Live_Wallpapers.zip -> Optional module. I've decided to remove everything regarding wallpapers from Addon features main module and create this one. I thought that it wouldn't make much sense to have a single module with almost 500 MB. So, this new optional module adds Pixel 6 static and live Wallpapers (obviously redundant for Pixel 6 users...) but, as well, it adds other Live Wallpapers that aren't normally available for download on Wallpaper & Style app (old stuff like doodle, conveyer belt, etc. from older pixels).


Notes regarding the "exclusive version" for Pixel devices:

  • DO NOT, I'll repeat, DO NOT flash "SystemUI module" zip on any other ROM besides stock Pixel. It won't work! If you want those extra features on your current ROM you will have to port them yourself. I explain how to later on this post.
  • Make sure that you're able to run adb shell as root before rebooting your device.
  • If something goes wrong after flashing "SystemUI module", like if your device doesn't boot or something stupid, connect your phone to your PC during boot and run this:

Code:
adb shell
Code:
su
Code:
rm -rf /data/adb/modules/Modded_SystemUI && reboot

  • If you forgot to enable the ability to run adb shell as root, and if your device is on a "non-boot" state, the only way you can fix that is to remove all Magisk modules you have installed. That can be achieved by running the following commands during boot:

Code:
adb shell
Code:
magisk --remove-modules
  • If none of the above methods work to get your device booting, then you have to boot into safe mode. By doing so, Magisk will disable all modules for you (it doesn't uninstall them, just disables them). To force a boot into safe mode all you need to do is to keep pressing volume down button during boot animation. After the system boots into safe mode you can reboot your device to boot up normally (since all modules will be disabled). If you get stuck during boot animation again, just force another reboot (I've had to do that during my tests).

  • When a new OTA update comes please don't flash the "SystemUI module" until I say it's ok to do so. I mean, me or any other member who may have tested it. Why? Because Google may change things on stock SystemUI and/or framework-res between builds. When that happens, I have to recreate the module again to adapt those changes. Rest assured that I'll always test the module with new builds and update as necessary.

  • In case your device gets caught in a bootloop, please provide me a logcat so I may try and look if anything can be done about it. To do so, during boot connect your device to your PC and grab a logcat with this adb command:

    Code:
    adb logcat > log.txt

    After grabbing the log, please open the txt file and search for "FATAL". Afterwards post here the lines where the "Fatal error occurred".


  • I've made these modules for my personal use and just decided to share with all XDA community. Having this in mind, there's no need for donations (although I won't refuse them if you want to buy me a beer). As for requests or whatever, I can only add more stuff when, and if, I have time for it. I'm a really busy man in real life so I can't promise anything nor ETAs.

Requirements:

  • Unlocked bootloader
  • Magisk Root | Magisk Manager
  • Stock December 2021 build, or later, running

Suggestion:

  • Uninstall all other modules you may have installed before installing SystemUI module zip. They could be incompatible with the "SystemUI module" thus making the device get caught in a bootloop. You may install them afterwards, one by one, just to make sure everything is ok.
  • If you're up to it, instead of disabling/removing modules, I recommend you to flash latest stock build through fastboot using flash_all.bat. In order to retain your data, remove the "-w" flag from the update command on flash-all script.

How to install?

  1. Flash both "Addon Features" and "SytemUI" Magisk Modules
  2. Reboot device
  3. Have fun!

Faced a black screen after flashing the "SystemUI MOD"? Then try this:
(This usually happens when an error about "TensorFlow lib" is shown on the logcat, if it's any other error, don't do this. Share the log instead so I may take a look)

  1. Uninstall both modules
  2. Enable 3 button, navigation mode on System Settings
  3. Flash both "Addon Features" and "SytemUI" Magisk Modules
  4. Reboot device
  5. Have fun!

If you're still having issues or if you want to fix that "TensorFlow lib stupid bug", which is responsible for not being able to use stock gestures navigation, then you'll have to do this:


  1. Uninstall all previous Magisk modules you had installed
  2. Completely uninstall Magisk (using the option on Magisk Manager app)
  3. Reboot device
  4. Flash latest stock ROM build through fastboot using flash_all.bat (remember to remove the -w flag inside the bat file if you want to keep your data)
  5. Root the device again using latest Magisk Canary (stable version works for the time being but latest Magisk Canary is more compatible with Android 12)
  6. Flash these two modules, and only these just to make sure no other module is causing conflicts
  7. Reboot device
  8. Hopefully it will work, so enjoy!

Video:

Check all Rom Control (with exclusive features) options HERE.

Note that this video was recorded when I've made this for Android 11. Some features may not be present (yet) for Android 12. The video is here only for those, who have never tried this on Android 11, may understand what to expect.


How's these "exclusive features" even possible?

All features that you see on Pixel Devices "SystemUI module" were reverse engineered from Proton AOSP and Evolution X ROM source code. The source code is available on the links bellow shown on the credits. This means that I've been practicing some hard core "old school" Android smali edition in order to get this working. So, yes, I have some credits about this but, if it weren't for the original developers and it's public source code, none of this would be possible. Thank them for this!

Smali, and xml, edition wasn't enough to get this working. After decompiling, changing/adapt the code and recompiling everything again, I had to find a way to make it bootable without messing with the original apk signature. And here is where VR Theme logic came in handy. So thanks for the original dev who brought us this feature.

As for ROM Control app....this was/is a project created by daxgirl and wubydax back in 2015! So yeah, I'm not bringing anything new here, I just followed their instructions in order to get the features working after editing smali/xml with the source code taken from PAOSP and Evolution X. The original app source code is also available on the link shared on the credits.

I've just combined all of the above into a Magisk Module and shared here so that we can get the best of both worlds....a stock ROM with custom features included.

Rom Control with "exclusive features" source code:

https://github.com/ElTifo/CustomSettingsForDevs/tree/Pixel4a_Android12


Want to port the "exclusive features" to your Pixel device running on other ROM? Here's how:

Credits:

Proton AOSP ROM team, specially @kdrag0n for all his work on Dual tone light/dark themes and other Proton AOSP helpfull commits.
EvolutionX ROM team, specially @joeyhuab

@daxgirl and @Wuby986 for ROM Control project and source code.
@Tulsadiver for showing me how to adapt VR Theme logic originally used on 3Minit Battery Mod by @gharrington.

Thanks for this! I got the black screen on installing SystemUI, but since Magisk Hide is removed from Canary, I'm reluctant to install that now. On stable v23.

But, my only reason for wanting the SystemUI-module is to get album art back on lock screen, but it doesn't seem that that's included on the A12 variant for now. At least it's not a mentioned feature. Will it be included in the future?

I'm trying to implement that feature. For the time being is still unavailable. But, yes, that's a feature that I too really want.

After uninstalling all other magisk modules besides the "safe" module, I've tried installing the SystemUI module with no luck. My phone bootloops, and I boot into SafeMode to uninstall Magisk. Am I missing something? Any suggestions?

Disable gestures navigation and flash the SystemUI module. If it works it means that you're facing the TensorFlow lib issue that I've talked about on the OP.

If that works, which most likely will, to fix it permanently you'll need to reflash stock ROM.

Hello!

Both modules have been updated to Version 5 and the links are now available on the OP.



What changed?

  • Added Android 11 Icon Styles and Icon Shapes overlays
  • Added ProtonAOSP Fonts overlays
  • Option to enable/disable Wifi and Data separate Tiles, instead of Internet Tile
  • Reduced screenshot overlay PIP time after taking a screenshot
  • Added more themed icons
  • Updated Rom Control app

Hope you may enjoy this.


Heads up:

  • The icons and fonts overlays gets disabled after a reboot or a SystemUI restart. Don't know why. So, after a reboot you'll have to change those options again.
  • The icon shapes, sometimes, require us to disable theme icons and enable it again after choosing our desired shape. Don't know why as well...

Yeah, this kind'a sucks... but, if I find a solution, I'll fix it on next version.



Cheers!

Yup, that worked! But as soon as I re-enable gesture navigation, everything breaks and the phone fails to boot instantly (not sure if that's expected?). Do you have a workaround?

Great work with the mod, however!

Hello!

Both modules have been updated to Version 6 and the links are now available on the OP.


What changed?

  • Added Album art on lock screen options
  • Added Music visualizer options (requires Addon_Features_for_Pixel_Visualizer_Fix.zip)
  • Force Google Sans system-wide is now optional
  • Enable/disable combined signal icons on status bar
  • Added center clock fix to the right (for Pixel 3a models)
  • Updated Rom Control app


Heads up:

  • I still wasn't able to understand what causes the fonts, icons and icon shapes overlays get reset upon reboot or SystemUI restart
  • Install Addon_Features_for_Pixel_Visualizer_Fix.zip first. Afterwards, reboot and wait for about 1 minute before doing anything else. Really, I'm not joking, install, reboot and just wait. Afterwards you may install the other 2 modules and reboot
  • The visualizer fix is deleted from the system after doing what it has to do. So it's normal that you won't see it as installed after finishing all this. That fix is only there to add a missing permission to SystemUI. It only has to be installed once (obviously if on the future you clean flash the ROM, you'll have to do it again)


Anyway, hope you may enjoy this.

Cheers!

My only worry is using Magisk Canary since Magisk Hide is gone... I haven't looked into solutions for that yet.

Just reinstalled and followed the first set of instructions again for V6 (which I did for V5 as well), and everything is working flawlessly with navigation gestures. Not sure what changed or helped.

Spoke too soon. Got black screen after an hour. Did everything fresh as in OP and now it works.

Man, that music visualizer is damn cool!! Thanks ☺️

Heads up for anyone wondering, the Dec 2021 pixel update does not seem compatible with this version of system_ui (bootloop on pixel 4). Wait for the module to be updated before flashing. If a log file or any other information will help you update the module let me know.

    @Typhus_ small request. I'm not sure how you have your hide navbar setup but if it modifies navigation bar height in android system could I make a suggestion?

    Pixel 4. Stock/rooted Android 12.
    Android System:
    navigation_bar_frame_heightset to 1
    navigation_bar_heightset to 1
    navigation_bar_height_landscapeset to 1
    System UI
    navigation_home_handle_dark_color
    navigation_home_handle_light_color
    Both set to 00000000

    This hides the navigation panel behind the handle, makes the handle clear, and still leaves the panel under the keyboard with the down arrow.


    I've already made a similar approach. V12 will have that option, as well as, to get it colored with accent color (if we can set transparency, we can set dynamic accent color... 😉).

    Cheers!

    I've noticed an issue with the tap to wake function after updating. If I get multiple notifications I can't wake the device with a tap. I have to touch the power button. No clue if its related to this mod or not.

    Please, download both V12 versions again. I've re-uploaded both files (earlier today) that fixes all bugs reported when V12 was released. Everything is ok now.

    Cheers!

Afterwards, reboot your device and wait for about 1 minute before doing anything else. Really, I'm not joking, install, reboot and just wait. You see, this "Visualizer fix" module is only needed in order to add a missing permission to SystemUI. It only has to be installed once (obviously, if in the future you clean flash the ROM, you'll have to flash it again or you'll be missing that required permission). And, since it's only needed once, this module is deleted from the system after doing what it has to do. So, it's normal that you won't see it as installed after installing everything.

    Android_12_Addon_Features_for_Pixel_V13.zip -> "Harmless" module that works on any Pixel device running on STOCK ROM, The features marked with an * above options, on Rom Control app, won't do anything if the SystemUI module, shared next, isn't installed.

    Android_12_SystemUI_for_Addon_Features_V13.zip -> This is "THE" module! This module adds all xml and smali changes into SystemUI and framework-res. Without this module the "exclusive features" won't work. Also, this module could be responsible for breaking boot if it fails to work at your end. I've ran several tests on my device (a Pixel 4a) and didn't face any issues but, since this module replaces stock SystemUI and framework-res for modded ones, you could run into problems if some other module tries to do the same or it's simply incompatible with it.

    Addon_Features_for_Pixel_More_Live_Wallpapers.zip -> Optional module. I've decided to remove everything regarding wallpapers from Addon features main module and create this one. I thought that it wouldn't make much sense to have a single module with almost 500 MB. So, this new optional module adds Pixel 6 static and live Wallpapers (obviously redundant for Pixel 6 users...) but, as well, it adds other Live Wallpapers that aren't normally available for download on Wallpaper & Style app (old stuff like doodle, conveyer belt, etc. from older pixels).


    Notes regarding the "exclusive version" for Pixel devices:

    • DO NOT, I'll repeat, DO NOT flash "SystemUI module" zip on any other ROM besides stock Pixel. It won't work! If you want those extra features on your current ROM you will have to port them yourself. I explain how to later on this post.
    • Make sure that you're able to run adb shell as root before rebooting your device.
    • If something goes wrong after flashing "SystemUI module", like if your device doesn't boot or something stupid, connect your phone to your PC during boot and run this:

    Code:
    adb shell
    Code:
    su
    Code:
    rm -rf /data/adb/modules/Modded_SystemUI && reboot

    • If you forgot to enable the ability to run adb shell as root, and if your device is on a "non-boot" state, the only way you can fix that is to remove all Magisk modules you have installed. That can be achieved by running the following commands during boot:

    Code:
    adb shell
    Code:
    magisk --remove-modules
    • If none of the above methods work to get your device booting, then you have to boot into safe mode. By doing so, Magisk will disable all modules for you (it doesn't uninstall them, just disables them). To force a boot into safe mode all you need to do is to keep pressing volume down button during boot animation. After the system boots into safe mode you can reboot your device to boot up normally (since all modules will be disabled). If you get stuck during boot animation again, just force another reboot (I've had to do that during my tests).

    • When a new OTA update comes please don't flash the "SystemUI module" until I say it's ok to do so. I mean, me or any other member who may have tested it. Why? Because Google may change things on stock SystemUI and/or framework-res between builds. When that happens, I have to recreate the module again to adapt those changes. Rest assured that I'll always test the module with new builds and update as necessary.

    • In case your device gets caught in a bootloop, please provide me a logcat so I may try and look if anything can be done about it. To do so, during boot connect your device to your PC and grab a logcat with this adb command:

      Code:
      adb logcat > log.txt

      After grabbing the log, please open the txt file and search for "FATAL". Afterwards post here the lines where the "Fatal error occurred".


    • I've made these modules for my personal use and just decided to share with all XDA community. Having this in mind, there's no need for donations (although I won't refuse them if you want to buy me a beer). As for requests or whatever, I can only add more stuff when, and if, I have time for it. I'm a really busy man in real life so I can't promise anything nor ETAs.

    Requirements:

    • Unlocked bootloader
    • Magisk Root | Magisk Manager
    • Stock December 2021 build, or later, running

    Suggestion:

    • Uninstall all other modules you may have installed before installing SystemUI module zip. They could be incompatible with the "SystemUI module" thus making the device get caught in a bootloop. You may install them afterwards, one by one, just to make sure everything is ok.
    • If you're up to it, instead of disabling/removing modules, I recommend you to flash latest stock build through fastboot using flash_all.bat. In order to retain your data, remove the "-w" flag from the update command on flash-all script.

    How to install?

    1. Flash both "Addon Features" and "SytemUI" Magisk Modules
    2. Reboot device
    3. Have fun!

    Faced a black screen after flashing the "SystemUI MOD"? Then try this:
    (This usually happens when an error about "TensorFlow lib" is shown on the logcat, if it's any other error, don't do this. Share the log instead so I may take a look)

    1. Uninstall both modules
    2. Enable 3 button, navigation mode on System Settings
    3. Flash both "Addon Features" and "SytemUI" Magisk Modules
    4. Reboot device
    5. Have fun!

    If you're still having issues or if you want to fix that "TensorFlow lib stupid bug", which is responsible for not being able to use stock gestures navigation, then you'll have to do this:


    1. Uninstall all previous Magisk modules you had installed
    2. Completely uninstall Magisk (using the option on Magisk Manager app)
    3. Reboot device
    4. Flash latest stock ROM build through fastboot using flash_all.bat (remember to remove the -w flag inside the bat file if you want to keep your data)
    5. Root the device again using latest Magisk Canary (stable version works for the time being but latest Magisk Canary is more compatible with Android 12)
    6. Flash these two modules, and only these just to make sure no other module is causing conflicts
    7. Reboot device
    8. Hopefully it will work, so enjoy!

    Check all Rom Control (with exclusive features) options HERE.

    Note that this video was recorded when I've made this for Android 11. Some features may not be present (yet) for Android 12. The video is here only for those, who have never tried this on Android 11, may understand what to expect.


    How's these "exclusive features" even possible?

    All features that you see on Pixel Devices "SystemUI module" were reverse engineered from Proton AOSP and Evolution X ROM source code. The source code is available on the links bellow shown on the credits. This means that I've been practicing some hard core "old school" Android smali edition in order to get this working. So, yes, I have some credits about this but, if it weren't for the original developers and it's public source code, none of this would be possible. Thank them for this!

    Smali, and xml, edition wasn't enough to get this working. After decompiling, changing/adapt the code and recompiling everything again, I had to find a way to make it bootable without messing with the original apk signature. And here is where VR Theme logic came in handy. So thanks for the original dev who brought us this feature.

    As for ROM Control app....this was/is a project created by daxgirl and wubydax back in 2015! So yeah, I'm not bringing anything new here, I just followed their instructions in order to get the features working after editing smali/xml with the source code taken from PAOSP and Evolution X. The original app source code is also available on the link shared on the credits.

    I've just combined all of the above into a Magisk Module and shared here so that we can get the best of both worlds....a stock ROM with custom features included.
