Hi All, So frustrated...the process is straightforward yet I have tried it several times without success.
The problem is that even after running the batch file the connections status stays "Disconnected". I have ran adb commands to my phone before with Minimal ADB (for immersive mode), so I know the phone connects and the drivers work.

I have ran the Andromeda's batch script file this two ways (dont know if this matters)
- while having the Minimal ADB & Fastboot installed
- after installing ADB with the 15-sec ADB Installer, I uninstalled the Minimal ADB first

The command window appears and disappears too quickly so I cant provide a screenshot with the contents. One thing I've noticed is that after running the batch file the device connection appears as "unauthorized". However, I can get it back to reconnect by unplugging and replugging the USB cable back.

I have tried to uninstall-reboot-reinstall (Substratum and Andromeda) and uncheck-reboot-check USB debugging (OEM unlock is unavailable in my phone). No success. Dont know what else to do :`( Any ideas???

Running Galaxy S9, Android 8.0, Tmobile, Snapdragon on original stock theme. Windows 10.0 Home (build 16299).
When you click on the batch file to start it don't run it as administrator, just click open. Sorry if you've already figured it out.

I really hope it will be possible in the future to update overlays without tether, this is really a pita because of the amount of updates for just Google apps that are released. Having to tether and reboot 2-3 times to just update apps multiple times a week is a little excessive. Even the Play Store and other major built in apps get updates very frequently. sometimes multiple times a week. This is a problem with the play store especially because if its update it breaks updating for all apps until the overlay is uninstalled.

I just wish Google would release a black theme, seriously how hard is it to do this for at least just the Google branded apps.
Here here, dark mode I would love.

And

They just release tetherless mode sungstromeda mode. Can build enable and uninstall overlays without pc on Samsung. For now only Samsung. It's legacy mode so is different to install overlays but no PC needed.

Since the latest update of Substratum when I run the batch file it completes like normal then when I go into the substratum app it only shows 2 overlays instead of the full list under manager, can't uninstall my overlays and not sure how to fix this.

I am surprised that this came out for Samsung devices before even stock Pixel devices. It also will not work with Oreo on Samsung devices, so that is a pretty small subset of users. The overlays work well when I did use them, there are just too many variables that can affect them. Also when items like the Google Play services had updated and broke play store updates, I would not even know this until I went into the play store and tried to update/install an app.

Hi all, this is a simple series of clean up commands for when you migrate to the new version of Substratum 990+, AND are on a Samsung device.

Newly compiled overlays will be readily visible on 990+ on Samsung + Andromeda users.

These commands are to be run INSIDE adb shell!

Uninstall all INACTIVE overlays:

Code:
for item in $(cmd overlay list | grep '\[ \]' | sed 's/\[ \]//');do echo ${item} && pm uninstall ${item};done

Uninstall all ACTIVE overlays:

Code:
for item in $(cmd overlay list | grep '\[x\]' | sed 's/\[x\]//');do echo ${item} && pm uninstall ${item};done

Uninstall all INVALID overlays:

Code:
for item in $(cmd overlay list | grep '\-\-\-' | sed 's/---//');do echo ${item} && pm uninstall ${item};done

Hello! I do not understand anything ... I wrote earlier about the connection problem
Updated the Google Play Market substratum. To andromeda is connected, via baht
He does not want to substratum. Though with the root at least without them. Previously, everything worked. And after the last algorithm I can not start at all. There are no pirated programs. He demolished all topics and substratum from andromeda, reinstalled

    Instructions for Windows

    Step 1 - Download your file for your current operating system!

    Andromeda App 6.0.0 (Windows): https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=1395089523397937511

    Step 2 - Install the mobile clients from the Play Store

    Play Store (Substratum v839+): If you have not yet, please install the main app! https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=projekt.substratum

    Play Store (Andromeda): You can install the latest Substratum on Android Oreo, unrooted, and it will prompt you directly (can't link due to paid addon)

    Step 3 - Load up the Andromeda Desktop Client or Script!

    1. Enable "USB debugging" on your device
    2. Install systemwide ADB drivers on your PC
    3. Connect your device to your PC
    4. Download the desktop client ZIP archive from the link below
    5. Extract the downloaded archive file and open the extracted app
    6. Press any button to start/stop server
    7. Wait for the process to finish, then you can disconnect your device from your PC
      You will need to do the instructions above every time you reboot your device.

    Andromeda v20 has been rolled out, and we have a key few things that need to be noted!

    I would like to clarify that the sneak peek of Andromeda and root a few days ago was not designed to be a way to replace rooted substratum builds, or to convince that root + Andromeda is the way to go.

    As a small number of users seem to be using Andromeda on a rooted device, it is simply just one rooted call that executes the same environment as if you plugged your device into the computer. Just like the current rooted Magisk plugins/scripts that require you to execute "su andromeda" by the community in XDA.

    To those who used to run masquerade and substratum back in the day, the calling package usually suffered the most because it caused a heavy configuration change due to "assetSeq" code from CMTE. As we are now using direct shell calls, the configuration change is lighter than the previous implementation but still exists, thus, a more reliable way for us was to "offload" the configuration change from the main substratum app.

    You do NOT need to (re)purchase Andromeda, and I would personally just stick with rooted mode on substratum for free if you are on Oreo, despite the configuration change explanation above, as Android O's Dynamic Overlays are faster than "assetSeq" and more reliable.

    However if you're unrooted, the recommended method is to definitely give Andromeda a try!

    One more thing, running the script no longer automatically runs substratum. As we have new plans of the app very soon and it shouldn't just be reserved for substratum!

    As promised, this is the major Substratum update that will prompt you guys to download Andromeda.

    11AM EST is the rollout time for the articles and the Andromeda addon APK!

    I'm glad that a lot of people are interested. Unfortunately I'll apologize in advance if I couldn't get to your PM. My inbox just flooded like no tomorrow! Haha

    Mac, Windows and Linux clients are all done, including the universal UI (alpha). So if the universal UI doesn't work, there will be a fallback.

    The Andromeda app is also done and privately tested ATM. Substratum is getting patches up and ready and will be done today or tomorrow, then the full announcement for the huge update will be pushed AFTER our scheduled XDA portal post is done :)
