    Descendant is a customised Android that aims to add useful tweaks over Android 9.
    We didn't fill the system with tons of features. We think less is more.

    • Wipe data unless willing to risk bugs
    • Flash in TWRP (don't flash gapps unless you want bugs -- pixel gapps are included)
    • Flash twrp zip and/or magisk if desired.
    • Reboot and enjoy


    I actually can't list all the additions.
    It would be a huge wall of text, that every user would probably not even read.
    So, check it out with your own eyes in our gallery and in our blog.

    Preloaded applications
    Pixel Gapps (from DU)
    Kiwi Browser
    Open Camera


    No squeeze gesture -- don't yet have Elmyra merged.

    Does call screening have any problems with this rom? Also, can you make the brightness slider on the notification dropdown disappear?
    No, call screening is working here. No way to remove it and probably won't be a way.

    Okay super confused as to why even after disabling vibration for plug/unplug I'm still getting vibrations. This is pretty annoying because i use ACC and when it cycles 90s on, 10s, i get the buzz every single time.
    You're right, I'll figure it out.
