Do you encounter that issue in certain apps? On my G7, I can't seem to replicate any touch issues in the navbar area when hiding it.
I think I encountered it in Whatsapp where the message box is at the bottom of the screen, If i tap right in the middle of the chat box, the keyboard would not open, but if i tap slightly at the top section of the chat box, the keyboard show up just fine.

Bit of a small update on both Vivid Green and Vivid Teal themes:

- Changed Wi-Fi logos on both status bar and QS tile. Took a bit of work so not sure how many others I'll be changing. Let me know if there's any ideas on styles.
- Added colored app notification badges.
- Fixed the backgrounds of the icon selection in settings.

Since I've had a few recommendations on Orange themes, I'll make that my next one. In the meantime, there is the Orange accent from the updated Velvet settings apk which I think was posted on Reddit.
Is it possible for you to add a non adaptive icon shape where all the icons appear like they did in android 7.1 nougat

Hi all,

I've figured out how to change wallpaper for LG's Desktop Mode using theming for UX9 devices. Not sure how many people actually use it but it's still pretty neat just to play around with.

Firstly, I've made a few sample themes which just apply new wallpapers. These are attached and are:
  • Vivid Desktop Wallpaper (Windows): Applies the Windows 10 wallpaper
  • Vivid Desktop Wallpaper (MacOS): Applies the MacOS Monterey wallpaper
  • Vivid Desktop Wallpaper (Wing): Applies the LG Wing wallpaper.
  • Vivid Desktop Wallpaper (Win11 Dynamic): This applies the Windows 11 wallpaper. The "dynamic" name is because it changes depending on whether day/night mode is active.
Like my other themes, make sure to install using a File Manager (are NOT Play Certified) and since they are technically the same app, you must uninstall it before installing a new one.

To apply:
  1. Unplug your USB C dongle.
  2. Install, go to "Wallpaper & Themes", click the "Icon" button on the bottom of the page, click "Vivid Desktop Wallpaper" and apply.
  3. You do NOT need to restart for this
  4. Close Settings (may glitch the wallpaper and require force stopping Home or restarting to fix otherwise).
  5. Connect your USB C dock or HDMI dongle
  6. Enjoy.
Edit: Updated version (V2) is now able to change the popup window bars to follow night mode. I've also added a new sample, "Win11 Dynamic" which also changes the wallpaper depending on day/night mode. This feature is also be included in my theme, "Vivid Monet Green".

Edit 2: It is possible for the wallpaper to get stuck, usually to the app drawer background if it is opened while it is transitioning to day/night mode. To prevent this, do not touch anything while it is switching modes (~5secs). If it happens, force stop LG Home.

Since wallpapers are pretty personal, I've also made a small Windows BAT script so you can use your own wallpapers using my Vivid Desktop Wallpaper theme. This uses APKTOOL to add in two wallpapers and then recompile the theme. As such, you can only have one of these installed at a time (see above).

I've tested this with a variety of pictures and while I haven't encountered any problems, I strongly recommend you to follow my instructions.

Wallpapers requirements:
  • Resolution: Ideally 1920x1080p but I have tested up to 4K, might have a performance impact. Make sure it is 16:9 otherwise it won't fit properly.
  • Format: PNG, JPG or WEBP (other formats not tested, ONLY USE THESE FORMATS)
  • Must have two pictures to apply (desktop wallpaper and app drawer wallpaper). Please note, these are applied as is so if you want a blurred app drawer background (as is by default), you will need to apply yourself (I recommend a photo editor like Gimp).

To use:
  1. Unzip the "Vivid Desktop Wallpaper (Tool)" file to any location
  2. Copy two pictures into the folder with the "VividDesktopWallpaperTool.bat" file
  3. Run the "VividDesktopWallpaperTool.bat" file.
  4. Once it is completed, the theme generated will be called "Vivid Desktop Wallpaper (Generated).apk".
  5. Transfer to your device
  6. Uninstall the "Vivid Desktop Wallpaper" theme (if already installed).
  7. Follow the instructions in the previous post
Edit: If you run the program and get a "Completed Successfully" message but no theme is created, make sure to install Java for Windows and try again.

Edit 2: As above for V2, popup window color now follows day/night mode. I've omitted the ability to change the wallpaper depending on day/night for now (for ease of use) but may add it in the future.

I finally have a theme in the Play Store called "Vivid Monet Green"! My aim for this theme was to add my favorite theme features along with a green-accented style that is similar to Android 12's Monet system. Here's the link:

- https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.vivid.pastel

Alongside my usual features (like Velvet volume bar transparency), I've also added new ones like dark mode popup windows and a green notification Sidelight. I'm really happy with how the Desktop mode theming came out, it looks much nicer in night mode now. There's a lot more changes so check out the listing for the full list.

I'll keep using XDA but I've always wanted to have a theme on the Play Store to show off just much unique features can be done with theming that haven't really been used before. On a sidenote, I've added in the dark popup windows (works in both desktop and normal mode) to Vivid Black Notifs V4.

Congrats on Play store release!! and thanks a lot!!🥳

    Hi all,

    I have a few themes in this thread with a few features shared. These include:
    - Google Feed added to Home​
    - Translucent volume bar (except for Full Black variants)​
    - Circle and Square icons available in Icon Shapes​
    - WiFi Icon changed (except for Vivid Google Feed)​
    - Matching Icon Badges in Home Screen (except for Vivid Google Feed).​

    To summarize the themes available:
    - Vivid Green: Applies the Velvet Green accent (both night and dark)​
    - Vivid Teal: Applies a dark teal accent​
    - Vivid Google Feed: Doesn't change the accent (so stays Blue for most users) but adds the features from the other themes.​
    - Full Black varients: For both Vivid Green and Vivid Teal, there is a Full Black variant which sets OLED Black in a number of UI elements as well as YouTube.​

    Vivid Teal is my personal favorite (although Vivid Green looks great with Dark mode). In addition, for those NOT using the official Velvet UI update (but have installed the Accent Color change apk's), using the Vivid Green theme allows the perfect use of the Accent Colors menu since Green becomes the default accent.

    NOTE: Since these themes are not uploaded to the Play Store, you will need to install using a File Manager (or app other than the default Downloads app). Thank Google for that :(. Also, if switching between a theme and it's Full Black variant, make sure to uninstall first or it may not work as intended.

    Let me know if anyone has any issues and enjoy!

    Edit: Added "Vivid Green (Full Black)". Pay attention to install instructions as it won't work if "Vivid Green" themes are "updated" between variations.
    Edit 2: Changed Youtube background to full black (when using the Full Black variant)
    Edit 3: Inadvertently activated Velvet switcher on some devices (which is buggy). Fixed
    Edit 4: Changed Wi-Fi icons
    Edit 5: Changed Vivid Google Feed to not change volume bar (use Vivid Volume Bar if desired) and also changed notification dots to match the regular blue accent
    Edit 6: Removed pop-up modification (applied to old volume bar) from Vivid Google Feed. If desired, install the regular version of Vivid Volume Bar

    "Vivid Black Notifs" adds some of the features from my full black theme variants and is designed to be used alongside any theme. Apply from the "Icon" tab in the theming menu. There are two zip files and an app included:

    - Vivid Black Notifs (No Navbar): Adds full black (or black with notification dividers) notifications and hides the light white pill on AOD.
    - Vivid Black Notifs (Navbar): Same as above but also hides the navigation bar.
    - Vivid Black Notifs (Navbar Only): The "Nav Hider Only" version will just hide the navbar (useful for full gesture navigation) while "Nav Shrink Only" will revert the navigation bar handle to the pre-Velvet UI update size. Won't do anything otherwise.

    These are variations of the same app so make sure to uninstall it before installing another or it may not apply properly.

    On a sidenote, I've also been working on an Android Studio template for UX9 themes. It's still pretty daunting for beginners but should help heaps in getting started. I'm still finetuning it but would that be something you'd be interested in? Let me know :)

    Edit 1: I've updated the themes to also adjust YouTube's background to be OLED black (same as the Full Black varients of Vivid Green and Teal). Also added in a preview picture. These are the V3 versions.

    Edit 2: The updated V4 versions now have the popup window color follow night mode. This feature was first added into my theme "Vivid Monet Green".

    After a suggestion on a new color, I've created another theme to add a darkish-teal accent. Features are the same as above (where applicable). Don't install both of the "Vivid Teal" themes at the same time but can be installed alongside the "Vivid Green" themes.
    Edit: Mixed up some files, fixed the black notifications (on "Vivid Teal" only).
    Edit 2: Added the accent to the same apps as Vivid Green (Gallery, Music, QMemo and File Manager)
    Edit 3: Added a fully black background on Youtube (when using Full Black varient)
    Edit 4: Inadvertently activated Velvet switcher on some devices (which is buggy). Fixed
    Edit 5: Changed Wi-Fi icons to a more ASOP style.

    Just applied the new ones. To me these look lot better than the old ones. Cheers(y)

    I've updated the non-black versions of my themes (Vivid Google Feed, Vivid Green and Vivid Teal) to add a transparency effect to the volume bar. See the screenshots below.

    Edit: Converted this to a standalone version (apply from Icon section of theme settings). I've also included a version which disables the "Adjust by App" option and makes the volume bar much shorter.

    Edit 2: For Velvet UI users, I've also created a similar theme called "Vivid Volume Bar (Velvet UI Only)". This makes the volume bar background transparent, removes the gradient color and to change color depending on night mode. For non-Velvet UI users, this will have no effect and you should use the other theme.


    Edit 3: "Vivid Volume Bar (Velvet UI Only)" updated to v2, uninstall old version first. Day mode colors adjusted to be more consistent depending on the background. Also added the night mode popup windows feature initially provided on "Vivid Monet Green" (available on the Play Store). In addition, there is now a navbar hide version if desired. Non-Velvet UI version is not being updated because I cannot test it anymore (my phone has the Velvet UI update and cannot be reverted) but let me know if anyone wants to try it.
