I get a lot of requests to remove the NavBar. I'm posting this mod at each phone's forum themes section. TWRP flashable zip. Restore zip will be created in a folder named ozop on your sdcard.

Pixel 8.0 November update
https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=673791459329061051

Pixel 8.1
https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=673791459329061778

Installation instructions for those of you that have root, but do not have TWRP. Busybox must be installed first.

1. Download the enclosed vrthemeADBversion zip and readme.txt for copying and pasting purposes.

2. Unzip the vrthemeADBversion zip to your sdcard. Rename folder to vrtheme

3. Put the readme.txt on your PC where you use adb.

4. Download appropriate NavBar Gone zip. Unzip and copy the system folder that is inside the vrtheme folder to the root of your sdcard.

5. On the root folder of your phone, find the data folder and create a folder inside it named tmp

6. Copy the vrtheme folder you earlier extracted to your sdcard to newly created data/tmp folder (/data/tmp/vrtheme)

7. On PC, with your phone connected and in file transfer mode, open CMD prompt and type "adb devices" without quotes. If your serial number comes up you can proceed.

8. Copy and paste the command lines from the readme.txt (include quotes)
adb shell su -c "mount -o rw,remount /system"
Hit enter

First time you will be promoted by SuperSU to give adb permission.

Copy and paste the second line in readme.txt
adb shell su -c sh /data/tmp/vrtheme/installtheme.sh

Wait until everything runs, after a pause of a few seconds your phone will reboot and your NavBar should be gone.

THANK YOU. works great (flashed zip in TWRP).

Are we going to need a monthly zip after every OTA update? Any tips on how to make this ourselves. Looks like this would make a great Magisk module.

Depends on the update. Most don't evolve the framework-res.apk and SystemUIGoogle.apk and that is what is modded. Once flashed, you have what you need to make a magisk module. Pull those two apks and there you go. This is device specific though.

My mod passes safety net so maybe you can still accept ota's.

I flashed this on the final 8.1 build and it bootlooped, but the ozop restore zip fixed it. Did they change something with the apk's?

If someone will upload SystemUIGoogle.apk and framework-res.apk from 8.1 Dec Final I'll make a NavBar Gone and some other mods as well.

Here are the files from 8.1 December. I've been unable to get apktool to work well with them, and making any mods to them lead to boot issues. They both had some undefined terms, and some 9.png issues.


I hope you are able to make it work. I specifically am hoping for the 30 dpi NavBar and more qs tiles.

I have an Aroma for you to try. Install the base at the bottom first. There are NavBar height and column mods you can flash after that. I'm not on 8.1 so this has not been tested.

I installed the base, followed by 6qs columns, followed by 32 NavBar. No problems at all, everything flashed properly and is working properly. Thanks so much for putting it together, I really appreciate it.

Some features of your normal aroma package are missing, of course. Most of the options seem to work, but the navbar icons are a bit messed up. I used the Lite Blue Navbar icons option. Picture attached.

    Columns, my mistake

    Thank you for the files. I normally go down to 32 dip but I'll include a 30 dip as well. Please remind me if I forget. My aroma will include, 4 as stock, but 5, 6,and 7 column options.

    I forgot to take those off. 8.1 navbar icons aren't working. Stock restore isn't either. I'll take those navbar icons off and fix the stock restore.

    Edit:
    Stock restore and Navbar swap hopefully work on this version.

    You installed my Aroma, how?

    Through TWRP, just have to remove pin/fingerprint and boot into TWRP, then it doesn't require decrypting
