Fabricated crashes when selecting Android system, I am rooted aswell. Does anyone have a fix? If it's relevant, I am on Android 12L, derpfest rom
Maybe you should try flashing the latest release : 1.1.0. It's only two weeks old so probably more up to date! If it crashes, you can file an issue on the developer's github page, which I have linked in the OP. Good luck!

How To Hide Navigation bar completely ( To support 3rd party navigation apps )

1. Change navigation to 3 button navigation in Setting --> System --> Gestures --> System navigation

2. Install navigation app ( e.g Fluid navigation gestures or vivid navigation gestures ) and enable and configure it before rebooting the device

3. Flash below magisk module and reboot the device

Now you can use your favourite navigation apps like Fluid navigation gestures or vivid navigation gestures app
Thanks for the great advice. ProtonAOSP ROM wasn't working with hiding the navbar after Jan. Picked up the Vivid Nav one and the module you shared helped without a hitch.

Thanks again

Is it just me or the APK can't be installed? https://github.com/zacharee/FabricateOverlay/releases/tag/1.0.2

It says There was a problem while parsing the package.

*I downloaded it from both my Pixel 5 Chrome browser, and also my PC's browser

    I faced the same issue with the latest release too.

    I'm not sure if the package is corrupted, or something actually 'blocked' it during my download. Very weird.

    Is it possible to test putting a zipped version here, and I will try downloading it?

    Let me know if it worked!

    Update: This only works if you are rooted now, since the January 2022 patch.

    Hi guys, I've seen several posts asking how to remove the Gesture Pill. It's easy if you're rooted, but it's also possible if you're not rooted.
    Here is a step by step guide. There is also a huge amount of UI mods that can be made using the same method.

    1. Download the Shizuku app from the Playstore
    2. Start the Shizuku app by running the following adb command:
    adb shell sh /sdcard/Android/data/moe.shizuku.privileged.api/start.sh
    3. Download and install FabricateOverlay release from Github.
    4. In FabricateOverlay click “Add Overlay”
    5. Choose Android System
    6. Click “Add”
    7. Set “android:dimen/navigation_bar_height” to 1. Apply. Save. Tick.
    8. Set “android:dimen/navigation_bar_frame_height” to 0. Apply. Save. Tick.
    9. Enjoy!

    Let me know in the thread if anything is unclear.

    Thanks to @squee666 for an alternative solution that does not affect the keyboard! Try it out!

    i think the other question is what kind of other good tips/tricks can be done with this apps?
    Hi, some people on reddit have compiled a spreadsheet. It is incomplete but it's a start: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1n3-EbZWS18TzDErelJIB_1lPLtih7eJ5VVx0djHOIFs/edit#gid=0

    Alternatively, if you are not in too much hurry, I am currently trying to write an app that will make the non-root tweaks easier.

    Hi guys, is anyone interested in an app that makes the overlays a bit simpler? You would still need to install and start Shizuku, but then you could do a bit of theming without root. I have almost finished making an app that allows you to change a few colours without root using a colour picker. For instance, the Material You colours and the drawer colours. I made it for fun but I can share it. If people are interested, I can gradually add more features. Let me know and no worries if not, I know this will probably only interest those of you who are not using a third party launcher in any case. ;-)

    From Reddit
    Somehow I managed to hide the navigation bar while KEEP the keyboard gaps.

    #Android system

    set "navigation_bar_height" to 1 px.

    set "navigation_bar_height_landscape" to 1 px.

    save then enable.

    Edit: set to 1 px instead of 0 to fix the camera lag issue then switching modes.

    #System UI

    set "navigation_home_handle_dark_color" to 00000000. (only the first 2 hex matters, 0x00rrggbb for 0% opacity)

    set "navigation_home_handle_light_color" to 00000000.

    save then enable.

    after activating the layout, switch light/dark theme to make it actually take effects.


    Using this now works perfect also fabric overlay a right battery drain when actively using

    Actuall you don't (really) need the apps ... you can generate and enable/disable these overlays via adb:
    Code:
    > adb shell
    > su
    # cmd overlay fabricate --target android --name ChooseYourName1 android:dimen/navigation_bar_frame_height 0x05 0x00
    # cmd overlay enable ChooseYourName1
    # cmd overlay disable ChooseYourName1
    # cmd overlay list
    #
    # cmd overlay fabricate --target android --name ChooseYourName2 android:dimen/navigation_bar_height 0x05 0x01
    First command generates the overlay (named ChooseYourName1), second command enables it, third command disables it, fourth command shows a list of all overlays.

    Just type:
    Code:
    # cmd overlay
    And you can see what other command line args are supported.
