I don't know what it happened .. i was able to change 2/3 times colors, now it didn't work anymore, rebooted, turned on/off, debug on/off.. i really don't know how change again colors
in adb i'm able to send command, but nothing change on the device

Any advice?

EDIT (SOLVED) maybe it could be useful to someone:

When i apply a color theme, then i should disable it to try another one, otherwise it stuck with latest color theme

example, if i try the purple one i send:

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

then i need to disable it

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

if i want to apply the ocean one (example):

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

and so on

As clearly written in instructions ?

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.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

Hello. I was able to use these commands to change to the circular pack. The issue is the lockscreen did not change. The battery indicator, wi-fi, and so on are still using the default icons. Would it be possible the change them as well?

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.

Hey! Thanks for this! But i need a bit of help - i'm a total noob when it comes to this - i do know how to flash my device but nothing beyond that.

How and where do I enter these commands in order to change the icons on my Xperia 1 ii?

Thanks!

FYI, what I did is this:

Enabled USB debugging in dev tools

Connected to my laptop.

Opened command prompt.

Entered each line (for rounded icon pack) one by one

Restarted device

Nothing changed - checked dev tools also - i have no "theming" category to select icon pack.

Where did I go wrong?

I don't have a X1 II but I do have a Xperia 1. In bottom of dev options of my device, I can change font, colours and icon shape. I am not sure if this is same in Xperia 1 II, you can give it a shot tho.

    adb shell cmd overlay enablecom.android.theme.icon_pack.rounded.systemui

    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 ;)

    Can I use adb to get 2 button navbar like android9?

    No the needed overlay isn't there.

    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

    Enable usb debugging, use minimal adb (Google)

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