THIS MODULE ENABLES UNLIMITED FULL RESOLUTION UPLOAD IN GOOGLE PHOTOS
REPORTS SAY IT DOESN'T WORK

Update 3 – Uploads May Still Count Against Drive Storage

We’re hearing reports that this trick was discovered by the team over at OpenGapps a few months back and was quietly patched by Google already. In that case, applying this trick will still result in uploaded photos to apply against your Google Drive storage (ie. it doesn’t work). We haven’t confirmed this ourselves, but if/when we do we will update the above tutorial.

Update 4 – Google Photos Unlimited Storage Not Working, Pixel Wallpapers Still Work

I have confirmed that photos uploaded in “original quality” using this trick still count against your Drive storage. My Drive shows that I uploaded 0.2GBs of photos and videos from yesterday. This means that the trick was patched, likely when it was discovered by the people over at OpenGapps. It’s strange that this trick somehow still triggers Google Photos into showing you the original quality onboarding message, though.

 Thread will be updated to look nicer. Atm I was in a hurry to post this for everyone to use

Edit: I will upload my module without Pixel 2 XL build.prop later as an alternative (just the nexus.xml)

Not sure where else to put this, but if you just want the wallpapers, you only need the following in the XML (which I named google_wallpapers_2017.xml):

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<config>
    <feature name="com.google.android.feature.PIXEL_EXPERIENCE" />
</config>

This is meant for the unlimited Google Photos (now patched, xml named google_unlimited_photos.xml):
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<config>
    <feature name="com.google.android.apps.photos.NEXUS_PRELOAD" />
    <feature name="com.google.android.apps.photos.nexus_preload" />
</config>

You do not need any of this:
Code:
    <!-- Enable Zero Touch Provisioning support for 2016 and newer Nexus devices. -->
    <feature name="com.google.android.feature.ZERO_TOUCH" />

    <!-- Allow Google unbundled tethering entitlement app in background -->
    <allow-in-power-save package="com.google.android.tetheringentitlement" />

    <!-- Allow ssr detector service in background -->
    <allow-in-power-save package="com.google.SSRestartDetector" />

    <!-- Allow ramdump uploader service in background -->
    <allow-in-power-save package="com.android.ramdump" />

    <!-- These are telephony components that need to run in the background -->
    <allow-in-power-save package="com.qualcomm.atfwd" />
    <allow-in-power-save package="com.qualcomm.embms" />
    <allow-in-power-save package="com.qualcomm.qti.telephonyservice" />
    <allow-in-power-save package="com.qulacomm.qcrilmsgtunnel" />
    <allow-in-power-save package="com.qualcomm.qti.ims" />
    <allow-in-power-save package="com.qualcomm.qti.radioconfiginterface" />

Somebody should make a new thread for a "Pixel Wallpapers Enabler" module.
