    I tried but having issues with those permission icons, and this app almost not used so i don't see the need to theme this.:p

    can you show me a screenshot? maybe your carrier got its own set of icons which is not on hex yet.

    tried this triggers but I don't experience the FCs you said :confused:

    no, using hex will bundle you most Samsung 1st party apps, and hex is all about dark themes.

    i fixed this, can you confirm?

    you can only import hex color edits on hexified, not the whole setup, you can read the setup info on theme descriptions so you can copy it and use what they did on theirs. of course you have to download those 3rd party icons packs separately.

    fc or freezing when you change account?

    -Place your .ttf files inside hex/fonts folder

    -open hex app and choose Personalization

    -press Custom Font button

    -select your fonts to bundle

    -build your theme and apply

    -open Settings app Display settings

    -look for Font Style and Sizes option

    -apply your font



    *if you dont see the font there

    Download and "apply" SAMSUNG SANS font first on galaxy store then do the above steps once again.

    can you show us compasison graphs? saying its because of hex themes kinda odd if the drain was on os and system, and what theme base are you using? the high contrast theme or hexed plus?

    that will depend on the ui mode youn use, those are possible but not available atm with the current ui mode released.. but next future plugins can make that idea so thanks for suggestion.

    can you tell me more details? you mean you cant open Recent Edits and Settings icons on hex dashboard?

    -Place your .ttf files inside hex/fonts folder

    -open hex app and choose Personalization

    -press Custom Font button

    -select your fonts to bundle

    -build your theme and apply

    -open Settings app Display settings

    -look for Font Style and Sizes option

    -apply your font



    *if you dont see the font there

    Download and "apply" SAMSUNG SANS font first on galaxy store then do the above steps once again.

    what 3rd party apps? try to setup the hexed plus base instead and select more 3rd party apps, if you mean yoou selected many but doesnt work, try to restart your pohone, apply default theme, apply different themestore theme and apply your hexed theme again.

    we dont include those on the theme base and supprted apps because wallpapers are user preference, you can actualyy auto apply a wallpaper every after apply of hexed theme, check that on settings.

    1. hex uses samsung theme store, so if you got problems using it, this womt work, but can you tell me whats wrong and why you cant use theme store?
    2. hex doesnt include wallpapers on compilation, so you can use any wallpapers you want.

    that default base is just the edited contents of high contrast theme, i dont have any other reports regarding battery drain of that because of hex, can you try hexed plus base? note 10 got a special instruction for it to stick so read carefully.

    you can use this app offline, but let the app first use internet to verify the lisence, we only use the theme store to apply the theme, hex made themes are not sever based so i dont see the problem if you having issue downloading theme store themes.

    i thought that app was dead? :p i halted adding more 3rd party apps for now, im more focused on ading more features.

    no not possible, but you can customize its transparency on lockscreen settings.

    ----------------------------------------
    i will be more active again here from now on, what im working now is adding support for light mode, its a switch that can affect all possible ui modes but it will not be customizable as the dark theme, it will be always white with just changed PRIMARY COLOR..when that happen we can have 1 theme supporting both day and night mode.
    im also starting to make my new themes and plugins so be sure to check em out. :good:
    Would be nice a plug-in to make lockscreen elements transparent. Good lock works have a deal breaker: can't see the notification preview without interaction.

    Love this project, thanks for the efforts :) Small annoyance with Hex themes though - It really bugs me that when you install a hex theme, it changes the heading text color of ALL notifications to one unified color. E.g. before Hex i used to have green header for whatsapp, yellow header and icon for snapchat, etc. but after applying a hex theme, everything just becomes plain white. Is there any way to keep the app specific colors for notifications?

    You can see in the Screenshot everything is the same color regardless of the app.

    so when new overlays are added to Hexed+, is that still dependent upon plugin creators to update the plugins to be able to actually use them? with the recent Hex+ update that adds 7 new overlays, when I go to rebuild My theme, none of them actually show up.
    you can check those app that was added on the list on bottom of the FAQ, if you dont have those apps, you wont see it on the list.. remember every hex update you must rebuild your theme and re apply for the fixes and changes to take effect, if there's a new 3rd party added and if you have those apps, you can select it on 3rd party app list before you build a theme again.
    possible to select a live wallpaper like muzei?

    wallpapers are user preference, it doesn't have any customization on hex aside from applying a solid wallpaper after applying of hex theme

    nice idea, i can make this as a tweak but the statusbar icons may not be possible to remove on lockscreen.

    no we cant theme it or remove the color value that changes it, "samsung theme applied" got a different and prioritized color value for those header texts and not reading the stock values, any samsung theme you apply will have this and its not possible to modify it as far as i know. so i suggest to just color it with vibrant color so atleast you can differentiate the header texts from normal notification texts.

    Is there a way to permanently remove the wallpapers? For some reason every time I install hex the wallpapers get installed din my gallery for some reason. I tried going into the file manager and removing the folder from there but for some reason every time it comes back.

    additionally all the themes were perfectly though the only issue I've had consistently is that what's up always works for a brief bit and over time end up crashing. Any way for me to remove just the WhatsApp theme (individual apps)? Or would I have to reapply from scratch?

    Create a file named .nomedia and put it in the hex folder where the wallpapers are. This will hide them from the gallery.

    That doesnt fix is issues of wanting them to be removed completely. Which I would also like to see an option do only download parts of themes. As the wall paper I never use. Not even once and I have tried every theme that has come out for this.

      I have the exactly same error with the same message.

      I have had issues like this several times before, sometimes I get it t work, other times it won't work.
      BUT there is something wrong with hex.
      Becuase I can download and use the High Contrast Blue theme if I do everything from Theme Store.

      It's when the uninstall and install trough Hex setup, I get this error.

      But this error is a new one, earlier the error was always that I could not download the theme.

      HEXED PLUS RELEASED!!
      New Base! go beyond and theme more 3rd party apps with it.
      full list of currently supported apps here
      Go to Hex app settings and set it up for free.
      sUnHA3H.png

      #INTRODUCTION:
      The original theme bodhisattva_ is celebrating its 3 years now, from Nougat, Oreo and the present PIE android firmware.
      The theme simply introduced advanced custom theming for Samsung since they release Samsung Experience UI and Theme Store, by providing more apps supported on a single theme, hundreds of apps on a single apk, 3rd party custom icons on Samsung's default launcher. Since then the theme became a good starting point base for other themers and influenced them a lot, open doors for overlay install method and other things.

      Now on this Theme Installer App, A user can do whatever they want to theme bodhisattva_ design principles plus other cool mods and tweaks to make the theme experience more personal.

      #FEATURES:
      -Complete Theme Color Engine - change background, primary, accent, texts, Qicksettings and Notification colors to anything you like (dark mode base)
      -Font files bundle feature - Include your own .ttf font to be included on the theme - No PC/adb needed.
      -Tweaks and popular light Mods like navbar height, QS transparency, Rounded keyboard and many more.
      -3rd party app theming support like making Instagram and WhatsApp dark? Twitter lights-out and Gapps themes that's made from scratch,
      NOT RELYING TO BUILD NUMBER, no installer update required, update 3rd party apps and still use them without waiting for us to update.
      -UI Plugins support- you don't like theme bodhisattva icons? simply choose Default Mode preference and you can theme with OneUI elements,
      AOSP-Q (full aosp experience for Samsung - all first party apps) and other themers designs like Diliun, Paragus, Broly, ayos_dark Custom UI tagged as HEX UI plugins.

      #INITIAL SETUP: FOR REGULAR HC BASE(only one time, unless you delete the theme base)
      1. Apply default theme
      2. Open Hex application and grant storage permissions, follow on-screen instructions.
      3. Customize and Build your theme
      4. Reboot and Apply your Hex theme from themestore.
      *reboot is only a one time scenario, this is just to fix the statusbar icon colors, on your next theme build, no need to do anything else or apply default theme first, just build, install and apply.
      *Please read the FAQ on app for more informations.

      #TROUBLESHOOT:
      Theme applied but all/some selected third party apps not working or didn't get dark.
      -Restart device
      -Apply default theme
      -Download and apply High Contrast theme (yellow)
      -Apply HEX theme (High Contrast theme II Sky Black)

      Theme applied but some apps like Dialer and Settings are not fully themed
      -Apply default theme and delete High Contrast Theme II
      -Download again High Contrast Theme II and APPLY it.
      -Open HEX and click Build button it will redirect you to apply Default Theme, apply Default theme.
      -Build your HEX theme again, apply and check.

      #FUTURE PLANS:
      -Add more 3rd party apps to get themed with user color choices. - done but still work in progress to add more.
      -Fully Implementation of UI PLUGINS to give limelight for other Custom Themers work. - done, but more ui mode plugins coming soon!

      Dev priorities for Hex Core

      Our Work Info :

      Hex Installer is the official alternative to themeGalaxy app.

      The idea is to provide Hassle free/Seamless theming solution for Galaxy OneUI devices without compromising any of the customization features. All my work primarily based on "Do It Yourself" concept. I believe everyone can make the theme for themselves if a right tool is provided. And we hope that you will find #Hex as your right tool.

      RoadMap and Priorities for our future Updates:

      1. Hex UI Plugin support that extends the different UI options.
      2. AOSP Q UI plugin for Free

      3. Experimental options to include background and dialpad images (WiP)
      4. More safe tweaking options
      5. Add more third party app overlays. We're going beyond High Contrast theme.
      6. Make #Hexified more interactive and interesting place to theme.
      7. Providing default day/night ui mode customization.
      8. Add Custom QS Toggles
      9. Make Hex+ possible on Android 10 - OneUI 2.0

      We never intented to obstruct any of the official themers work and themes and that's not the motivation of this community as well. We are trying to provide a custom theming solution to the people who are really willing to spend their time to theme their phone.

      Overall, every other part of jiotv is good but can you change the videoview background to black.
      late reply but ill try to tell this to rohit shetty, hes the one contributed the jiotv hex edit.
      Hi envy, is there any version of your Guilt theme without the frames around it? Would be lovely.
      guilt theme or icon pack? agony icon pack is the no frame version of guilt.
      Is there a way to permanently remove the wallpapers? For some reason every time I install hex the wallpapers get installed din my gallery for some reason. I tried going into the file manager and removing the folder from there but for some reason every time it comes back.

      additionally all the themes were perfectly though the only issue I've had consistently is that what's up always works for a brief bit and over time end up crashing. Any way for me to remove just the WhatsApp theme (individual apps)? Or would I have to reapply from scratch?
      I dunno about this but hex installer doesn't even include a wallpaper on any form on its themes, the auto-apply wallpaper is just a feature to make wallpaper auto-apply after you apply the theme that wallpaper is not bundled to hex. :confused:
      what would be the reason my build and install button doesn't react?
      you didn't install any theme base needed, high contrast theme 2 or the hexed plus theme base.
      Using hex+ with stock colors shows no phone icon on the dialer screen when using 2 Sims.

      Thanks YouTube notifications have unrealdeble text for the actions.

      it's now fixed for two sims on bodhisattva, and aosp ui modes, soon plugin makers will also fix their own.. just rebuild and reapply your theme for fixes to take effect.
      Hey there! The previous problem solved already. But I got a new problem now. I think my Google assistant broke as after applying mod

      So it always make my screen freezes & shows Google app stop responding. No matter how many times I restart & reapply, even I tried downgrade Google app, still can't get it fix
      are you using a cuatom launcher? for some reason google app and hex edit messing up the google app, try to reboot and see, or just deselect google app on hex then rebuild your theme.
      Hey I'm a really big fan of all your hard work! I'm tempted to try out hexed+, but I have a couple of concerns, because it's been a long time since I really modded my phone, and I'm paranoid about doing this to my main device.

      If I install hexed+, is there any way to completely revert back to the original theme. And if there's and update to the hex app, do I need to disable and enable the theme again?

      Also, will the adb process mess up something like Android updates? I know it likely won't, but I just want to be sure.

      Again, thanks for your time and work.
      the guy who answered you is correct, and adb method is long gone already and the theme will appear on store pretty fine now.
      Thanks for your reply! I don't see any FAQ about hexed+. What excactly is the difference between hexed and hexed+? It says in the overlay list that hexed is able to theme about 60 apps, whereas hexed+ can theme over 100. But I can only theme seven apps when installing a theme. Is the hexed+ app different from the hex app? Sorry, I'm confused.
      what 7 apps? you must select them on 3rd party-list before building a theme.
      Any idea when we might be able to customize icons too?
      I don't know if this feature will be added really, different apps use different values for their icons, and we cant make a universal code to fix them all without issues, this explains why twitter, Reddit, twitch and other apps got a black background underneath them, removing those background can make the app fc, but Saty my partner got plans now to make a Samsung launcher replicate that support 3rd party icon packs, lets seee where that idea leads to.
      Deliun plugin problem?
      Volume bar color error?
      contact the plugin maker on email.
      Great App. Quick question. Is Hex breaking the OneUI notification badges? I have switched to OneUI launcher, but icon badges on notifications are not showing? Thanks;
      see home settings options maybe you turned it off.. hex edit got notification badges perfectly fine.
      Good Day Devs! Is it okay if I ask overlay for One Hand Operation+? Specifically for Task Switcher and Quick tools. I attached the screenshots for reference. Thanks
      not working for more 3rd party apps for now, im focusing on adding more features and adding more ui modes.
      Everytime I run Hexed+ it reverts back because of the trial ... I've followed instructions on applying it and going back to hex'd and rebooting but it never sticks
      re install the hexed plus base, it shouldn't revert.. and dont modify it on any form manually, themekeeper service will not work.
      Is there a way to just apply the dark theme to apps without messing with my theme?
      hex is still based on Samsung themes, we cant to that, but after build try to uninstall all 1st party apps you don't like to get themed on troubleshooting, but FYI, some 3rd party apps relying their background values on framework edit of hex..
      hi all.
      is thiere a way plz to get statusbar themed and keep everything themed by stock samsung night mode????
      Sent from my SM-N975F using Tapatalk
      no, but try applying hex theme then uninstall all on toubleshoot section leaving the systemui only, but i dont guaranty thats the thing you will like
      I did not buy Hex installer yet, I still has this simple " and maybe stupid" question before I do that!!


      Can I install the hex themes without this step

      "-Download the High-Contrast Theme II: Sky Black (blue one) from the theme store, but DO NOT APPLY."

      And this is because I can't download or apply any theme from the theme store other than the default theme (samsung account doesn't work in my country!!!)

      Samsung Note 8, Android Pie
      that high contrast theme skyblack is already preinstalled on all samsung pie phones, if not just use the hexed plus base.. its hex app own theme base.
      Without sounding disrespectful, I would like to ask that as well. Can a theme only be applied to apps?
      no, read my replies above
      From where to download fonts to use in hex? And which format?
      As I downloaded zip and ttf format, both not showing up in hex.
      -Place your .ttf files inside hex/fonts folder

      -open hex app and choose Personalization

      -press Custom Font button

      -select your fonts to bundle

      -build your theme and apply

      -open Settings app Display settings

      -look for Font Style and Sizes option

      -apply your font



      *if you dont see the font there

      Download and "apply" SAMSUNG SANS font first on galaxy store then do the above steps once again.
      It looks like documentsui.apk is not themed yet. Any plans?
      it is, on hexed plus base.
      FYI, after updating and rebuilding:

      The most current and new Galaxy store version FCs on settings and has some visual quirks.
      already fixed on new update, rebuild you theme and re apply.
      Excited for the updates to the AOSP plugin this morning but the wifi icon is still bugged for me on my verizon s8. Some nice updates to hex though!
      can you show me a screenshot?
      -------------------------------------


      Soon to be added a cool preference tweak:
