Hi folks,

I've just received my brand new Xperia 1 II and I don't want to unlock the bootloader and root it.

So, I've figured out that Sony haven't removed the Pixel themes overlays from the system.

IT WORKS WITH ALL XPERIA using android 10 ;)

Here's how to activate Filled, Rounded and Circular themes.

Code:
adb shell cmd overlay enable com.android.theme.icon_pack.filled.android
adb shell cmd overlay enable com.android.theme.icon_pack.filled.systemui
adb shell cmd overlay enable com.android.theme.icon_pack.filled.settings

Code:
adb shell cmd overlay enable com.android.theme.icon_pack.rounded.android
adb shell cmd overlay enablecom.android.theme.icon_pack.rounded.systemui
adb shell cmd overlay enable com.android.theme.icon_pack.rounded.settings

Code:
adb shell cmd overlay enable com.android.theme.icon_pack.circular.android
adb shell cmd overlay enable com.android.theme.icon_pack.circular.systemui
adb shell cmd overlay enable com.android.theme.icon_pack.circular.settings

If you want to apply a new theme or come back to default theme, you have to disable previously enabled one with:

Code:
adb shell cmd overlay disable com.android.theme.icon_pack.circular.android
adb shell cmd overlay disable com.android.theme.icon_pack.circular.systemui
adb shell cmd overlay disable com.android.theme.icon_pack.circular.settings

Reboot is needed to apply the theme on lockscreen.

You can also change the color accent with this:

Code:
adb shell cmd overlay enable com.android.theme.color.purple

and disable it with

Code:
adb shell cmd overlay disable com.android.theme.color.purple

Replace "purple" with black, cinnamon, green, ocean, orchid or space for other colors ;)

If you want to change icon shape, use this:

Code:
adb shell cmd overlay enable com.android.theme.icon.roundedrect

and disable it with:

Code:
adb shell cmd overlay disable com.android.theme.icon.roundedrect

Replace "roundedrect" with squircle or teardrop for other shapes.

If like me you don't like headsup notifications, you can turn them off with:

Code:
adb shell settings put global heads_up_notifications_enabled 0

Replace "0" by 1 to enable them back ;)

Guys how and where do I type these codes?
Do I need to unlock my phone or can I just do it using and ADB app?
And do you know how to get rid and/or edit the text on the apps? I could do all this easily on my OnePlus but it's nowhere to be seen in the 1ii

With root you can change everything, when I'll do my rom you'll get 8 various background colors.

Enable usb debugging, use minimal adb (Google)

You can't removed application name. Use an other launcher.

Code:
adb shell settings put global heads_up_notifications_enabled 0

Replace "0" by 1 to enable them back ;)

Just came for curiosity and found and amazing command :D
Applied to my Xperia 10 II.
Thanks @niaboc79!!!!
Just curiosity, if I reboot my phone heads up notification will be enable = 1 or will keep 0?

Hi folks,

Hello. Sorry if unrelated, but have you thought about porting gcam to Xperia 1 II, since there's only very few people on XDA having access to this phone.

The Xperia 1 II camera hardware and the photopro manual camera is excellent. But the stock camera app is very lacklustre. Seeing that this phone is S865 with sensor similar to S20 Plus, it should theoretically doable. Most people just want to point and shoot and get images with great dynamic range.

Hi @niaboc79, reeeeaaaaaally good work. Thanks alot for that.

What commands do I have to type in to get a full stock Pixel experience?

And is there a way to activate an overlay that gives me an OLED black settings panel?

No since stock or photo pro auto mode works perfectly, I haven't missed one picture since day one.

You'll get everything with my rom later.

But to let you know, you can't install an overlay without original signature key.

@niaboc79 Just got my Xperia 1 II. There is one thing that really sets me up... When I connect my phone to my Wifi 6 mobile hotspot from my computer which I use most of the time the phone connected but no internet access. Any other Wifi netfork is absolutely fine. Any ideas? I am on the latest Sony firmware flashed with newflasher v20 and then with performed a software repair with Xperia Companion. Any ideas what the problem could be?
