So if I'm on Beta3 with Holydragon kernel already installed I will need to flash stock boot img before flashing xXx? Not a big deal but I was hoping since it's a module that wouldn't be necessary
Nope, you can flash over custom kernel. Just take your time choosing your options in the script [emoji106]

Thank you. The only thing I'm trying to figure out now is where exactly to put the config file. I've read the thread and I keep seeing to put it in the xXx file on the sd card. Do I create this file? And where exactly do I put it? I don't really understand what "on the sd card" means since there isn't one.

I have the smoother scrolling enabled and I installed the ROM. Everything is great except I don't like the smoother scrolling. I want to revert only this feature back to stock. How can I do it? Do I need to update the profile and re-install the ROM or can someone give the build.prop changes made by this tweak please.

May I ask what made you want to revert? Why are you not liking the smoother scrolling? What did you notice in difference?

yes, yes...it works now!
i flashed Stock OOS through TWRP, and i am back in my phone, with all data/information intact.
you saved me some panic, @kiran8631 !

i need to try xXx v4.4 then, because maybe it's v4.5a that has the issue?
i don't know.

i like this xXx.NoLimits and i want to go back onto this.
however, the xXx_PROFILE version is v14 now but if i want xXx ROM v4.4 , i need PROFILE of v13
so, curious about this too....whether the v4.4 ROM works on v14 PROFILE.= ?

Can I ask you, or anyone who may know, which rom images do they recommend to flash stock that will not erase storage? Especially for Oreo, which is what I'm running? I know there are a bunch available here I the forum. Just wanna make sure if I ever run into an issue where it's necessary.

Here is what to do.
1.Download Magisk zip and config file
2.Edit config file using Note Pad ++ with your options
3. Put both files on your SD card (Internal Storage) this is where everything downloads to (look in your file app)
Do not put theses files in a folder as if you were setting up to do the conversion ie the "root of the SD card"
4. Flash Magisk file in TWRP it will find the config file and create the xXx folder.
5. After flashing, you can move the config file to the xXx folder as it will now look for it if you make changes.

Thank you so much. Just reflash Magisk, put the files in the right spot, Then just flash no limits in TWRP and I should be good.

i was stuck in a TWRP bootloop after flashing v4.5a,
but since then, reflashing the stock OOS ROM and also removing/reflashing Magisk has brought everything back to normal.

now, when i flash v4.5a , some of my Apps simply don't run anymore.
i don't know what causes it, because i have kept same profile as v4.2, ie. disabled kernel tweaks, tweaked Google at Pico level and disabled Wakelocks = 1, etc. etc.

anyone know why v4.5 is preventing some Apps from running?
i'm running stock OOS Kernel too.

It seems to be a "magisk-problem" as it was mentioned few pages back.
I had no issues by dirty flashing. But later on I tried another rom, but went back to oos, as I don´t wanna miss xXx-module anymore, did a clean flash and ran into the same issue. Flashing magisk again (and xXx once more) did it for me. Didn't need any uninstaller as it was recommended in other posts.

    xXx NoLimits ☆ for OnePlus 6/6T

    About xXx NoLimits


    xXx NoLimits is an OxygenOS Stock ROM enhancement for OnePlus 6/6T (Enchilada)


    xXx NoLimits is not a Rom itself but it's a Magisk Module which works exactly like all my previous Roms except that it does not include any OOS Rom components like Firmware, System, Vendor partitions or the Kernel. Therefore the size went down to about 200MB+. In combination with the OOS stock Rom it still provides you with all options you might have used already with my previous Rom versions.

    As a Magisk Module running on top of the OOS stock rom, xXx NoLimits works 100% Systemless and provide you with plenty of options to be selectively installed. This way you get most of the typical things you usually have to collect and install one by one all out of the box.

    Advantages over my previous full rom concept
    - Works independent of the current OOS Rom version
    - Still working after OOS version upgrade
    - Support OOS Stock Rom OTA's
    - When a new OOS OTA is available, just run the OOS update, flash Magisk again and xXx NoLimits is still in place and working like before
    - Complete Systemless - Don't touches system or vendor partition at all
    - Debloating without touching the system partition.
    - You can change debloat options and simply flash xXx NoLimits again without the need to install the OOS stock rom again.
    - smaller and faster download
    *
    Must Requirements
    - OOS Stock Rom with basic android setup in place
    - A working Magisk in place
    - Flashing in TWRP only

    My focus with this Rom enhancement is to provide a smooth and snappy user experience with a decent battery life but also have some additional functions, tweaks and mods available which, for my taste, are missing in the stock OOS Rom.
    *
    This is not a commercial project but my hobby. I developed this for my daily driver device and I decided to share it with you.

    xXx System Tweaks

    I added several tweaks on different levels to make the rom faster and snappy.
    These tweaks also improve multitasking and maintain the system to be constantly fast.
    6/8 GB RAM can (and should) hold a lot apps and services in the background. If you like apps to popup in virtual no time I recommend you to not close them when you change to another app but just put them to the background. Also, when speed is more important to you than window animations you can reduce the 3 Animation scale values in the developer options and select the AKT Burnout Kernel Profile.
    xXx Tweaks includes There are also several more features under the hood like:
    WiFi channel bonding for the 2.4GHz frequency
    ART Optimization
    Detaching of modded apps
    Disable Google Play Wakelocks for better battery life
    LMK Tweaks to use all RAM down to about 700MB left for best multitasking
    Magisk Health Check
    Kernel Tweaks
    …and several more


    Debloating
    The rom provides you with the full range off not debloated at all (like OOS stock) to max debloated.
    I also included a flash option to select Extreme Debloating. This will debloat the rom down close to a core Android level. You need to enable this option to take advantage of it.
    The advantage of debloating is to gain even more speed and battery saving as less unused apps and services are running or even more free RAM to hold your favorite apps in background.
    The downside is that you might miss certain apps or functionality but definitely nothing what will make your android unstable. All Google Apps are all available via Play Store as well.

    Sound Enhancement
    xXx NoLimits includes ViPER4AndroidFX by default unless you disable it in the flash options. I also included my favorite sound profile which you will love for sure as well. Otherwise select the full profile package as well.
    Dolby Atmos is also available as an option and work side by side with Viper and the Stereo mod.


    Systemizing Apps
    For all who have issues with apps being killed in the background even they are marked as not to be battery optimized. If this happens, you won't get notifications anymore from that specific app and next time you jump to that app it have to be loaded again instead of still being available in Ram.

    In order to work around this issue, you can now place your critical apps as apk file with any filename in the following folder:
    /sdcard/xXx/apps
    All apk files will be installed as system apps when you flash NoLimits next time.

    Now your selected apps will behave like a system app and as system apps are excluded from battery optimization mechanisms, they are most likely not killed anymore in background.

    Let's say you want to do this with Whatsapp and have Whatsapp already installed as user app. This is not a problem. You don't lose any data and if updates are available, they will be applied by the Playstore like always. The apps are installed system-less as part of the NoLimits Magisk Module and NOT placed on the system partition.

    If you want to add further apps, just place the apk files in /sdcard/xXx/apps and flash NoLimits again. Or if you want to remove some, or all apps simple remove the apk's or remove the apps folder and flash NoLimits again.



    xXx NoLimits Uninstaller

    You could simply uninstall NoLimits with the Magisk Manager uninstaller but NoLimits is also changing Window animation speed and disable several Google Services in order to block wakelocks and disable Google Analytics for all installed apps. These changes can't be done systemless. These changes are persistent stored on the data partition.
    The NoLimits uninstaller uninstall NoLimits and revert all changes back to stock settings.

    Uninstaller Exceptions
    GCam and Substratum apps are kept as people might still use these apps and want to keep them. They can easily be uninstalled like you do with any other user app.
    xXx folder on the sdcard also remain as you might have stored files in there which you might want to keep. Simply remove it with a standard file explore.

    How to use the NoLimits uninstaller?
    It can be flashed via TWRP or Magisk Manager.
    After flashing, the xXx NoLimits module will be removed and a NoLimits uninstaller Magisk module is in place instead.
    After rebooting, the NoLimits uninstaller completes all remaining tasks and automatically remove itself. Don't touch it. This process could take up to 5 min. when you had Google Analytics removal option enabled. The time depends on the number of user apps you have in place.
    I suggest to create a Nandroid backup in TWRP before running the uninstaller to be able to go back any time to the previous state.



    Further improving user experience

    The Kernel Tweaks option provide some further optimizations for better performance. I recommend to use the SmurfKernel by @pappschlumpf.
    I'm running this combo with Kernel Tweaks enabled myself and my device is awesome fast, lag free and battery friendly.

    Downloads - xXx NoLimits OP6

    Latest xXx NoLimits Download
    xXx NoLimits follow an unified "one installer fits all" concept.

    Latest xXx NoLimits version is still working on this device and can be downloaded here in my OP8pro thread

    Why is there no dedicated xXx NoLimits version for this device?

    xXx NoLimits follow an unified "one installer fits all" concept and even I currently own the OP8pro only, I still take care that NoLimits remains compatible with older OnePlus devices.

    Even though, this is a hobby project and I try to keep my time investments low. Therefore, my main efforts are focused on my daily driver which is the OP8pro.

    I still keep my xda thread open for older devices, so that users can still help each other in the respective NoLimits thread.

    In combination with the OOS stock Rom it still provides you with all options you might have used already with my previous Rom versions.

    TWRP Source
    All files and instructions to get TWRP up and running you will find here:

    Prerequisite to flash the xXx NoLimits Rom - xXx.NoLimits.profile

    Unfortunately, the current available TWRP don’t support Aroma Installers yet.
    In order to still provide you with the possibility to choose your favorite options to be flashed the rom is using a file called “xXx.NoLimits.profile” as a reference for all your individual settings.

    If you just flash the xXx NoLimits rom.zip without placing your individual edited xXx.NoLimits.profile to the sdcard default settings are used for flashing. This means you can just flash the xXx NoLimits rom but if you like to set your own preference presets you have to either edit the file or you extract the file from the rom.zip and copy it to the /sdcard or /sdcard/xXx folder on your device.

    The xXx NoLimits installer detects automatically if you have the “xXx.NoLimits.profile” on your sdcard or not. If not it will use the presets from the profile included in the rom.zip. So the priority is the profile on your sdcard. If you install the rom via OTG you can also place the profile to the root of your usb-stick and this will have priority over the profile on the internal sdcard storage or the rom.zip.

    Basic Instruction how to edit the “xXx.NoLimits.profile” you will find inside the file.
    Just one more important information. If you are editing the profile on your Windows PC you must use Notepad++ otherwise you destroy the required file format.

    You can download the xXx.NoLimits.profile here

    - Saftynet Fix for Pie OB3
    - xXx Nolimits Version back to Build Number to fix Bank app issues
    - Added Digital Wellbeing
    - Added IceBox freeze/unfreeze speedup patch
    - xXx.NoLimits.profile updated to v10
    - All apps updated to latest

    Hey guys and gals,

    Instead of posting a new version of xXx NoLimits, I would like to inform you that I decided to stop the development of xXx NoLimits for all devices. This means that the current v2.9.2 is the last version which I posted here on xda.

    This decision was growing over quite some time now and was triggered by 2 main reasons.
    • Since about one year, I’m extremely busy with my job which essentially reduce my available free time for my family, friends, private duties and my hobby to the weekends. This is a non-commercial hobby project and my priorities are family and friends first. This situation might change and I start a new project, but for now that’s the way it is.
    • xXx NoLimits is my hobby and the main driver for continuous development was that it has been great fun for me to develop and maintain this project. But now it’s more of a duty than having fun.

    I started with xda in 2008 and posted my first project on xda in 2015. At this time most of the xda members was very educated, eager to help each other and most of them was hitting thanks when somebody helped them or a new version was made available.

    Today it feels like most people are less educated and at the same time complexity increased a lot. Now we have encryption, increased overall security measures, a vendor partition, a/b partitioning, a shared partition for kernel and recovery, Magisk roms etc. So the demand for education to successfully flash Rom’s and stuff increased a lot, but instead of educating first to a certain level, users right jump from nowhere into rooting. Instead of reading first and searching for a suitable solution, it’s obviously easier to post questions as issues arise. If somebody helped solving the issue, often not even a thanks is applied to that post.

    My special thanks to all loyal users and donators of xXx NoLimits and the ones who strongly help to support other users.

    Even though there will be no updates anymore, xXx NoLimits is a Magisk Module which supports Oreo and Pie Rom’s. So it could be further used like it is for quite some time.

    I will be still around here, but might be not as active as before.

    Cheers
    xXx
