Thank you very much its working for me with 1st method
Btw... I have just tried this out on a different phone. Photos app shows unlimited free uploads (analog to yours). However - the storage is being counted!! It's NOT working for me.

Can you confirm that it really works after you have uploaded a big file/video for example?

Just upload a big video file, go to your Google drive quota, search for big files. If it does count towards your quota you will find the video file listed there.

I'm pretty sure Google recently updated google photos to prevent the thing from working in their apk. Try combinding it with pixelify magisk module to spoof fingerprints.

    Simple mod to back up all your photos in Original quality to Google Photos without it being only in High Quality.

    Requirements: Root

    1st Method

    Instructions:
    1. Download Root Explorer
    2.Download the Nexus.xml file
    3. In Root Explorer go to system/etc/sysconfig
    4. Paste the .XML file there
    5. Change to file permissions to 0444 (read only)
    6. Clear Data/Cache from Google Photos
    7.Reboot
    8.Enjoy unlimited original photos backup

    For those who this method doesn't work, there's another method I've found.

    2nd Method

    For this method you'll need BuildPropapp.

    Download the app from the file I've provided or from playstore.

    Open the app , At top right corner you'll find a pencil icon. click on it, You'll see a list of codes.

    Now you can either manually find the following values or use the find option in the menu from top right corner.

    Change The Following Values:-

    <strong>ro.product.model=Pixel 2 XL </strong>
    <strong>ro.product.manufacturer=Google</strong>
    <strong>ro.opa.eligible_device=true</strong>

    After changing the values. Click on save icon and close the app.

    Again wipe the user data of Google photos and reboot your phone.

    That's all...

    There is a third, easiest option
    Use the provided magisk module

    Nice mod but it's always a bad idea to play to hack Google services...

    I see thanks for the clarification but is there anyway to revert back.. i didnt make any backup for my build prop ..can you help ?

    U used the module I provided? Just go into magisk manager app, and disable the module, and reboot

    1st parking and wait for people try out

    Edit: it actually works. But it adds on top of your current google drive storage (my max storage 19GB + extra 11GB from this mod, total I have 30GB now)
