Glad I stopped by to see what's going on before I decided to update to March build. Should I hang around Feb build for a bit?

Hello!

Like I've already talked about, Google, on Android 12 March build, has made a drastic move. They've decided to silently move to Android 12L or 12.1 or whatever Google has decide to name it...point is, Android 12 has moved from API 31 to 32.

And what does this mean? It means that the Addon Features "FULL version" is not compatible anymore even on newer Pixels.

For the time being framework-res.apk can't be decompiled...it can't even be installed in order to be decompiled. This means that, until Apktool gets updated I can't do anything in order to update the FULL module version to March build.

On the other hand, and since this happened, I think I'm going to drop this module logic, as it is, and move to a new one where all "exclusive features" will be based on xposed hooks (it works with Lsposed zygisk version). @siavash79 has already started to work on it and there's already some test versions available.

You may test them it if you want to.

Also, you can flash LITE Addon Features version module zip along side those test versions...that's my current setup while running March build on my Pixel 4a.

Just go to this post and check it out, in case your interested.


Cheers!

I'm having a strange issue before I even get to flashing the LSPosed module - flashing Addon Features v21 Lite version seems to disable battery percentage. I've tried setting/unsetting in SystemUI Tuner, also installing the LSPosed module and fiddling with battery settings to see if that would help. Is this known behavior with 21 Lite, or a new issue? 4XL on March update. I took a logcat of trying to toggle "always show percentage" in SystemUI, but I'm unsure if it'd help.

Feel free to contact me here or on Telegram (same username) if there's anything I can do to debug. Thanks for the awesome work as usual and my apologies for having to rush in with a problem.

That's odd. On the mod Full version I had an overlay that did that, it disabled the option on settings. I did it since it wouldn't make much sense to have it there doing nothing, since the option was overriten by the exclusive feature on ROM Control.

But, in LITE version, since that exclusive feature doesn't exist, I've removed that overlay so that the option would appear again on system settings.

So, please check /data/adb/modules/AddonFeaturesForPixel/system/product/overlay/ for a disable battery overlay. If it's there, just delete it and reboot your device. It shouldn't exist but...based on your report maybe it's there.

Cheers!

That was most certainly the problem. Deleting the folder fixed me right up. Thank you!

Hey Typhus,

Is there a way to make the module use other modules that modify the font or is there a way I can force it to on my end? I never realized that some modules were t getting applied when the module became active, resulting in boxes and weird dots instead of the normal "..."

The screenshot attacked, you'll see boxes but if I disable the your module, I'm able to see what it says due to the symbols fix module.

Thanks

From this day on, Addon Features Module will no longer receive any updates. It's the EOL for it.

BUT....


I'm pretty sure you all noticed that @siavash79 has been working with me for some time now and we've teamed up to come up with a module that will try to, not only have everything Addon Features had, but MORE.

HOW!?

By creating
a new project, called "AOSP Mods".

That project will be a mix between a Magisk module and Xposed module (using Lsposed zygisk version).

For now, the 2 projects are still separated (Addon Features and AOSP Mods) but the final objective is to merge them into a single module.

So, you may still use
Addon Features V21 LITE version module zip but, in order to have some of the "exclusive features", that were present on FULL version, working, you'll need to flash AOSP Mods as well.

So, let's all just move on to the new AOSP Mods thread and start to have fun together, shall we?

See you guys "on the other side".


Cheers!
 
Hey @Typhus_ , could I ask how the network icon changing worked in your mod? I see that AOSP mods has the the ability to change the battery icon, but not the network icons yet. Are both the battery and network icons changed the same way, or is changing the network icon more problematic than changing the battery icon? I loved the Zig-Zag style in your mod and I'm trying to figure out how long of a wait it could be before we see it in AOSP mods as well.

That has already been ported to AOSP Mods.

    What is this?

    This is a Magisk module that adds the following cool custom features to any Pixel device (from 3a to 6 Pro) running stock Android 12 Pixel ROM:

    • Enable/Disable Google Sans font system wide
    • Adds Icon Styles and Icon Shapes overlays from Android 11
    • Fonts options
    • Enable/Disable Combined signal icons
    • Pixel 6 Wallpapers (requires an extra module, please check downloads section)
    • Adds 2 button mode navigation (it was removed on Android 11 but I think some users like that navigation mode, so I add it)
    • Adaptive sound 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*)
    • Enable/Disable SystemUI Tuner
    • Enable Game Overlay for all Pixels by default (although, if something goes wrong while playing games, you can disable this feature)
    • Enable/Disable dual tone battery meter (it only works on icon portrait mode)
    • Enable/Disable showing the number of unread messages on status bar notifications
    • Reduce Status bar height (and option to correct left padding on devices with the notch on the left)
    • Enable/Disable more themed icons on launcher (some apps don't have a themed icon so it won't work for all apps)
    • Enable/Disable left shortcut on Lock screen
    • Enable/Disable camera shortcut on Lock screen
    • Enable/Disable gradient effect on QS Tiles and Brightness slider
    • Hide gestures navbar pill (using transparency)
    • Colorize gestures navbar pill with dynamic accent color
    • Dark Themes from Android 11 Addon Features
    • Choose QS number of rows
    • Brightness slider padding and thick track options
    • Enhanced Google Dialer (to enable stuff like Call Recording and etc.)
    • Enhanced Smart Space (to enable stuff like Flashlight, Earthquakes options, etc.)
    • Enables some newer Pixel features to older Pixel devices (things like Live Translate, Haptic feedback settings, etc.)
    • Enable/Disable option to reduce QS Tiles text size (works better on some QS Tiles themes)
    • Option to install Tap Tap (a great app for devices without Quick Tap and even for the ones that have it)

      These next features, also included in the MOD, indicates that framework-res and/or SystemUI were modded. This means that these next features will only work on devices running stock Android 12 Pixel ROM. I'll talk more about this later.
    • Enable/Disable Wifi + Cell QS Tiles instead of single Internet QS Tile
    • Battery Styles
    • Clock Customization
    • Network Traffic Indicators
    • QS Battery percentage independent options (show estimate time remaining or just percentage)
    • Dual tone Light/Dark themes for Quick Settings Panel and Power Menu
    • Album art on lock screen options
    • Music visualizer options
    • QS Quick pulldown with one finger (options are off, drag from the top left, drag from the top right and drag from anywhere on the top)
    • Revamped Screenshot service (it allows us to delete screenshot as soon as we take it and we can enable/disable screenshot shutter sound)
    • Show/Hide QS Edit icon on QS footer
    • Show/Hide Quick access Developer options icon on QS footer
    • Quick access Rom Control app by long pressing on QS Footer Settings icon
    • Edit Back gesture navigation height
    • Enable/Disable inverted layout for 2 and 3 button navigation modes
    • Enable/Disable carrier text on lock screen
    • Date, clock and battery click actions on QS Header (long click on clock goes to system time settings, simple click opens clock app)
    • QS Tiles animations and vibration options
    • Disabled icon blacklist on both status bar and lock screen(the icons can be disabled using SystemUI Tuner for those who don't want some icons to appear anywhere)
    • Override feature flags (This allows us to override feature flags manually using setprop persist.sysui.flag."whatever_flag_we_want" command)
    • Use 4G instead of LTE option
    • Resize navbar pill (normal, medium, big)
    • Tap to add or remove tiles in QS customizer
    • Enable/disable QQS Brightness slider
    • Enable/disable default QS Brightness slider
    • Auto brightness QS icon (on/off)
    • Brightness slider position (Top, Bottom)
    • Double tap to sleep on status bar
    • Double tap to sleep on lock screen
    • Enable/disable Double-line clock on lock screen and AOD
    • Enable/disable circle background on lock screen fingerprint icon (it only does anything on devices that have it, obviously)
    • Force accent color on ripple animation while unlocking with fingerprint
    • QS Tiles Styles
    • Edge Sense Plus MOD (it only works on devices with active edge sensor)
    • Battery Bar

      -------------------//------------------

    • Rom Control app (to setup all these options)

    Downloads:

    Download latest module version from HERE! Further updates can be done using Magisk Manager.
    For more info about updates, please read THIS POST.
    Addon_Features_for_
    Pixel_More_Live_Wallpapers.zip
    This is an 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:
    • Since V17 the installer mod detects if your device runs into a boot loop after flashing it. If it does, and this will happen on any device not running stock Android 12 Pixel ROM, it will force a new reboot and will try to boot your device running a mod "Lite" version. The "Lite" version is nothing more than a mod version where the only features available are the ones above the red line text.

    • If you want those "exclusive features", the ones after the red line text, working on your current ROM you will have to port them yourself. I explain how to later on this post.

    • Those "exclusive features" are based on xml and smali changes made on stock SystemUI and framework-res. Without these changes the, "exclusive features" won't work.

    • 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. If you want to try any other mod that changes SystemUI, or framework-res, there's an option on ROM Control that allows you to disable those "exclusive features". After disabling them, your Pixel device will reboot with a "Lite" version as well.

    • Make sure that you're able to run adb shell as root before flashing this module and reboot your device. Just in case something went really wrong and you need to remove the module manually.

    • If your device really refuses to boot, after flashing this mod, connect your phone to your PC during boot and run this:

    Code:
    adb shell
    Code:
    su
    Code:
    rm -rf /data/adb/modules/AddonFeaturesForPixel/system/framework/ && rm -rf /data/adb/modules/AddonFeaturesForPixel/system/system_ext/ && reboot

    This will only remove framework and systemui "modded" files. Without them, you're device will boot and the other features, that don't require modding, will work just fine.
    In fact, if you remove these files from the module zip before flashing, you can flash that modified zip on any device running any AOSP, or close to it, ROM.
    In case you want to completely remove the mod, you can just run this:
    Code:
    adb shell
    Code:
    su
    Code:
    rm -rf /data/adb/modules/AddonFeaturesForPixel/ && reboot

    • If you forgot to enable the ability to run adb shell as root, and if your device fails to boot, you can fix that by removing all Magisk modules you have installed. That can be achieved by running the following commands even without root shell 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 it's possible that the MOD will force boot with Lite version. 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 boot loop, 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 Android 12 Pixel ROM build, or later until February 2022 for "FULL" version compatibility
    • Any AOSP, or close to it, Android 12+ ROM on any device for "LITE" version only (not fully tested...some devices/ROMs may not work)

    Suggestion:

    • Uninstall all other modules you may have installed before installing this. They could be incompatible with the module thus making the device get caught in a boot loop. 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 "Addon Features" module
    2. Reboot device
      If your device/ROM is fully compatible, everything will be ok at first boot
      If not, your device will auto-reboot after first failed boot attempt and boot again with the Lite version only
    3. Have fun!

    How to update?

    1. Open Magisk Manager app
    2. Press the update button on"Addon Features" module
    3. Reboot device
    4. Have fun!

    Video:

    You may check what to expect from this module HERE.

    Note that this video was recorded when I've made this for Android 11. Some features may not be present for Android 12 and others can be that didn't exist for Android 11. 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 "exclusive" features that you see on the list above 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.

    Hello!

    Addon Features has been updated to Version 19 and the new release is already available for download through Magisk.


    What Changed?

    • Enhanced Google Dialer (to enable stuff like Call Recording and etc.)
    • Enhanced Smart Space (to enable stuff like Flashlight, Earthquakes options, etc.)
    • Added some newer Pixel features to older Pixel devices (things like Live Translate, Haptic feedback settings, etc.)
    • Added 2 more QS Tile Themes (thanks to @Liranazuz5 )
    • Added option to reduce QS Tiles text size (works better on some QS Tiles themes)
    • Updated ROM Control app

    Notes:

    • If Call Recording isn't available as soon as you open the app (after flashing the mod), please close it, remove it from recent apps screen and open it again...that should do it.

    • This new version will clear both Google Dialer and Android System Intelligence apps cache and data. I don't mind about this, since I haven't got nothing major on both apps data and cache, but some user might so...you've been warned.

    • LITE version is available for download on GitHub for devices where the boot loop script still refuses to work properly. Battery percent option, on system settings, is now available again on LITE version. Sorry for that...I totally forgot about it.

    Hope you may enjoy this.

    Cheers!

    Hello!

    Both modules have been updated to Version 11 and the links are now available on the OP.


    What changed?



    • Added more java date string types on clock date customization
    • Added signal icons styles (don't know why but when enabling them, Rom Control app crashes...well, whatever... 🤷‍♂️)
    • Fixed some icons not appearing on lock screen status bar (they can be disabled using SystemUI Tuner for those who don't want them to appear anywhere)
    • Enable/disable carrier text on lock screen
    • Added date, clock and battery click actions on QS Header (long click on clock goes to system time settings, simple click opens clock app)
    • Fix Network Traffic on QS if set to QS header only (now it's only visible if fully expanded and on the top right)
    • Force user selected font on more UI places
    • Added Landscape battery style and left battery text option
    • Use less blur and zoom on lock screen album art
    • Added QS Tiles animations options
    • Enable/Disable vibration while touching QS Tiles
    • Allow overriding feature flags (this allows us to override feature flags manually using setprop persist.sysui.flag."whatever_flag_we_want" command)
    • Added Voice Access for all Pixels (you can turn it on on Accessibility options and control your device with voice commands)
    • Updated Rom Control app


    Hope you may enjoy this and I wish you all a happy new year! 🤘 :devilish: 🤘

    Hello!

    Addon Features has been updated to Version 17 and the new release is already available for download through Magisk.



    What Changed?

    • Introduce "Avoid boot loops script" (many thanks to @siavash79 and @HuskyDG)
    • Added 4 more, and improved some, QS Tile Themes (thanks to @Liranazuz5)
    • Added 2 more fonts (JetBrains Mono and Roboto Source)
    • Updated ROM Control app


    Notes:

    From now on if the device fails to boot, after flashing the module, the device restarts itself one time and it will boot with a mod "Lite" version.

    What does this "Lite" version mean?


    • It means that every feature, that requires framework-res.apk and/or SystemUI modding, won't be available on ROM Control (I'm talking about the features after the red text line on the OP)

    • It also means that Addon Features should now work on Android 12 L and Android 13. Yes it will be a "Lite" version but, hey, better that than nothing, right?
    • In theory, the module should now be compatible with any device running an AOSP, or close to it, Android 12+ ROM. Haven't tested it but chances are that it is. Again...it will be the "Lite" version.

    • ROM Control now has an option that allows you to disable all those "exclusive features". If you do disable them, then you'll be able to use any other module that changes SystemUI (all stuff from @Tulsadiver and Renovate Ice from @mwilky). You can also do it just for testing purposes to understand which features would be available if you flash this on 12 L and/or 13.

    • If, by any chance, the mod still refuses to boot, after the "auto reboot in case it fails", then you'll have to remove it manually as I've explained on the OP.

    Hope you may enjoy this.


    Cheers!
