Meet Extras For AA Collection, the most advanced way to tweak Android Auto's look
Extras For AA + Wallpapers For AA =
In case you missed it, I've made another Substratum Theme for Android Auto to personalize the default background. Check out Wallpapers For AA now!
1. Extras For AA
Extras For AA is the first theme of the collection. It was born to be a theme to personalize some elements in Android Auto, and now it is a very comprehensive theme that can tweak a lot of things inside Android Auto.
Here's a preview of what this theme can do:
CUSTOM BAR MODES
Custom bar modes!
One Button? Two Buttons? Three Buttons?
One Button: navbar is just launcher icon
Two Buttons: combine launcher icon with the recent app or notification icon
Three buttons: combine launcher with notifications and recent app
Madness Mode = Clock instead of launcher icon
+N = + Notifications
+Q = + Quick access app
H = Horizontal
V = Vertical
Other modifications available:
- Reduce or remove bottom bar/status bar of AA
- Personalize the look of 3rd party apps menus like navigators (AmiGo, Sygic, 2GIS...)
- Swap the launcher button with the clock, thanks to madness mode
- Pick your favourite gradient and apply it to what you'd like! Bar, widget, heads up notifications and even custom bar modes!
- Customize colours of various things such as accent (bottom widget), bottom bar, caption of apps, heads up notifications, notification center...
- Choose between all the status bar customization
- Much much more!
There's an entire document covering most of the options available. Check out now more previews!
If your device can't run Substratum Lite, download the specific version of Extras For AA which is called Legacy. This version is optimized for old devices that can't run Substratum Lite.
If your device can run Substratum Lite, go for normal one!
2. Icons For AA
With Icons For AA (previously Extras For AA Icons Special) you can personalizse:
- Exit Icons
- Status Bar Icons
- Bottom bar Icons
- More to come!
3. Animations For AA
Third and newest theme from the Extras For AA collection. With Animations For AA, you can personalize:
- App switch animation
- App enter animation (Android Auto 6.1+)
- App exit animation (Android Auto 6.1+)
- Notification animations
Icons For AA and Animations For AA have no Legacy version
Substratum is very limited on Android 11 and for the time being it can only apply very light modifications to user-installed apps. This is out of my control and I don't know whether it will be fixed or not. Extras For AA has so many modifications and making a very light version for Android 11 is just not worth it. Icons For AA and Animations For AA will mostly work fine.
For some reasons, Synergy won't apply themes outside of the phone's screen. This has been an ongoing issue since OneUI 1.0 and unfortunately I don't think it will be ever fixed. Blame Samsung!
You can technically install Substratum on Android 6, but it relies on a old implementation that is not compatible with the actual Substratum. Android 6 is not supported.
