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

* -> 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_Pixel_5_or_6_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 (if you're using latest Magisk canary) OR replace the "-w" flag for "--disable-verity --disable-verification" (if you're running Magisk stable) 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, if running Magisk Canary, or replace the "-w" flag for "--disable-verity --disable-verification", if running Magisk Stable, inside the bat file to keep your data and disable the security flags )
  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:

Well, today I've received some good news. An user reported that the mod is working without the need to flash a different "SystemUI module" just for Pixel 5 devices.

On Android 11 there was a problem where I could not add the Network Traffic indicators feature showing on status bar. They could only work if set to be on QS header. On Android 12 that happened again on Pixel 6 models. So I thought that Pixel 5 devices required that too.

On Pixel 5a a different "SystemUI module" isn't needed. Can anyone confirm that on Pixel 5 it isn't needed as well, so I may remove the "Pixel_5_SystemUI" link on the OP?

I've attached some screens here so you may check, for yourselves, that this is working on a Pixel 5a.


Cheers!

Thank you for this dude, this is beautiful !! 🙌 😁
Using the P5 SystemUi Addon module..getting bootloop on the "regular" SystemUi Addon.

Could you send me the logcat when trying to use the "normal" one? Just so I may check if the problem is indeed related to network traffic indicators like it happened on Android 11.

Cheers!
 
Hi,

How did you do to have the two separate tile Wifi and Data ?
First:
adb shell settings put global settings_provider_model false
Then go:
adb shell settings put secure sysui_qs_tiles "wifi,cell,$(settings get secure sysui_qs_tiles)"
For wifi toggle i'm using this:
Make sure granting the app location access...

It works, no need to install wifi_qs, what is it ?

You won't need all that on next Addon Features update. ;-)

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!

and one question, so this mods will not work with full gestures on Pixel 5 GSI. it's fine with 2&3 buttons navbar, but goes into black screen when switch to full gestures.
any idea why?

anyway, thanks for your great work... it's awesome

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!

    Hello!

    SystemUI V11 module is compatible with January build, I'm already using it. Addon features is as well, but that one never gets affected when a new build comes out...

    Although I noticed some changes on some java files, fact is, it's compatible.

    Either way, I'll have to recheck stuff (in case I notice that something gets broken while using it).

    Now I just have to wait to see if January build for Pixel 6 devices brings new stuff, or not.


    Cheers!

    Lockscreen clock fix is an awesome addition.
    Great work.
    You should thank the devs at source code level. I'm just a dumb guy who ports it to stock.

    Like I've stated on the OP, if it weren't for them, none of this would be possible.

    Cheers!

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_Pixel_5_or_6_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 (if you're using latest Magisk canary) OR replace the "-w" flag for "--disable-verity --disable-verification" (if you're running Magisk stable) 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, if running Magisk Canary, or replace the "-w" flag for "--disable-verity --disable-verification", if running Magisk Stable, inside the bat file to keep your data and disable the security flags )
    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!

    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.

    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!
