The colors are for the big widget, however, in the next update, I'm going to try that also applies to small widget.

Thank you very much friend.
My mother will be very grateful.
She uses clear backgrounds and always asks me about this.
I use black backgrounds and I do not have that problem with the widget, but she does.
Many thanks from my mother :)

I was thinking maybe a blank/opaque overlay on the screen during calls, having an option to turn on/off on privacy

---------- Post added at 11:56 PM ---------- Previous post was at 11:55 PM ----------

Nice module, just some questions, what ist the best version to use it with at the moment? Is it normal, that i get popups like (translated) "your privacy settingsa could not be changed, please try again later"? The hide online status and delivered status seems not to work all the time. And i have problems that others can not hear my voice messages, showing them they are not on anymore... is this a whatsapp bug or something to do with the mod?

@Krowne Hello there amazing Dev/Team,

Your app is amazing works even on the latest beta builds. Small noticed if you haven't noticed them already:

1) When you mark to reply some text the status bar turns buck green(stock color)

2) When I select a photo to draw put stickers etc and send it to a friend , nothing is applied.

Thank you and keep up the amazing work.

    what ist the best version to use it with at the moment?

    It works the same in any version specified in the changelist or in the first post.

    Is it normal, that i get popups like (translated) "your privacy settingsa could not be changed, please try again later"?

    That's normal, that message is displayed, because you have the option to hide the last connection activated, but you can see the other one. Therefore, if you enter or have entered a conversation of one your contacts, and he have hidden your last connection, then you usually display that message.

    The hide online status and delivered status seems not to work all the time. And i have problems that others can not hear my voice messages, showing them they are not on anymore... is this a whatsapp bug or something to do with the mod?

    This question has two parts, which are different, and have no relation to each other.

    On the one hand, the option to hide online status is independent, and if you only have this option enabled, it will always work correctly.

    On the other hand, you have the option to hide received messages. I have explained in many occasions (it's a frequent question) that it's not advisable to use this option continuously, as it causes a delay in the received messages, both text and audio (if I had used the search engine there would have viewed).

    I want to clarify, that this is not a bug. It's the behavior of the WhatsApp servers, by not detecting message delivery.

    @Krowne Hello there amazing Dev/Team,

    This error is in the list of known errors. I'm sorry, but I've explained several times that, at this bug, I don't know how to solve it. :(

    Hello Krowne.

    Long ago I have asked about freezing gif files, etc. on my Z3. It was completely unrelated to Kmod, but since it was the first thing I have had problem with (when I discovered a bug of some kind), I asked here for help.

    So, if anyone's having any issues with video / gif playback in whatsapp, here's the resolution for that:

    Bluetooth issues

    When I install this mod, everything works fine except one thing. The Bluetooth loses every paired device once the phone is rebooted. Does anyone have this issue? I have an s8 g950f, magisk v.14, xposed 88.1. Please, I really want to use this great module. :(

    If you don't give me a bug log, I can't do anything about it, although I think it's going to be a problem with your version of Android with Xposed.

    It's absolutely impossible that you are receiving a notification to update to version 2.6.4, this doesn't exist at the moment, it's in beta phase of personal use. Upgrade to version 2.6.3, available in the same forum or in the Xposed repository.

    Oops! Looks like I misread it! It prompts me to upgrade to 2.6.3. Seems like the xposed repo's latest version is 2.6.2 which lead me to download this version.

      Enable resource hooks in lsposed settings and select system framework and whatsapp in module section. Confimed working for me.

      Well, I gave it a try, deinstalled ExXposed and install LSposed with your settings. I rebooted my phone a few times but it didn't work. Just decided to return to EdXposed but tried KMOD one more time with LSposed and suddenly it works !!:LOL:

      I'm don't really like that I don't know why it suddenly works, but I'm glad to return to KMOD:D

      • The circle of FAB button on the main screen doesn't apply color customization.

      ATTENTION!

      The Riru module v22+ from Magisk, doesn't detect Xposed correctly, therefore it's recommended to use version 21.3 so that everything continues to work correctly.

      As I communicated a long time ago, now the Hooks update system (now called libraries) will not continue to update automatically. Updates will now be made on each version independently, and there will be no updates for all versions.

      To update the libraries, you must enter the Updates section and click on the Update libraries option. At the moment, there will only be libraries for stable versions and beta versions published on weekends, however, in the link published below, I will publish all available versions of libraries in each version of KMod FWA.

      FAQ:
      Q: I installed an update, and KMod FWA is not recognized by Xposed.
      A: This is usually normal on some devices.

      Disable KMod FWA from the list of Xposed modules, perform a normal restart (not quick), enable KMod FWA again in the list of Xposed modules, and do a normal restart.

      Sometimes, disable and enable KMod FWA the list of Xposed modules, and do a normal restart is sufficient.

      Q: Why it doesn't work in some versions of WhatsApp?
      A: This only works in official versions of WhatsApp higher than that specified in the requirements.

      It may also be that your Android version doesn't have integrated customization, and that is the reason why there is no customization in WhatsApp.

      Q: Installed and activated the module, why the changes do not apply to WhatsApp?
      A: Maybe you have not successfully activated the module, deactivate, activate, and then restart of device (normal restart, not by software). You may also be using a version of WhatsApp not compatible with the module.

      Q: Can't download themes from the cloud?
      A: At the moment this option is not available, you can upload your themes to external and share servers.

      Q: Where was it saved, or where should I save new themes to load them into KMod FWA?
      A: Used to place their themes on your SD card or internal memory, in the /KMod/Themes route. Make sure the directory exists before placing, if doesn't exist, open the module for create directories.

      Q: I have changed the application icon, and no changes are applied.
      A: After changing the application icon you must restart your device. If it still doesn't change the icon, you may be using a launcher who does not support changing the application icon (such as Nova Launcher).

      Q: I have updated KMod FWA and several options have stopped working.
      A: If this happens, then go to KMod FWA Settings, select Delete cache, and press Apply changes in KMod FWA.

      Q: I have activated the option to see a Toast of the people who connect and disconnect, but it does not work.
      A: These notifications will only be displayed when:
      1. Log in to WhatsApp.
      2. Enter a contact's chat.
      3. You are inside WhatsApp.
      4. Do not keep the online status hidden.

      When these four conditions are met, then you should see when the contacts you have entered into your chat are connected or disconnected.

      If you comply with the four conditions, but leave WhatsApp, force the closure of the application or enter KMod FWA, you must repeat the four conditions to make it work again.

      Q: I have problems related to privacy options.
      A: See this post for more information: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=75503030&postcount=1772

      when your private life depends on a programmer or an app. there is no patience worth. nice to meet you KMod

      I also have a private life, and as I said many times this is a hobby, and I also said many times that I'm busy lately, that until June I wasn't going to be able to update, and even saying that, I've been working on something, but in a private way.

      If your private life depends on a developer or an app, I think you should look at it. (with all my respect).

      Another point that many ask me is the compatibility with Android 9 and 10. The module works for some people who use edXposed, if you are one of the people that KMod FWA doesn't work, it's not something I can solve, it's something that Developers of edXposed should solve, for incompatibilities with your devices. Therefore, it's not that KMod FWA doesn't work because it is not compatible, it's compatible, but your device with edXposed and KMod FWA is not.

      Note: The options to hide record audio and write don't work correctly in the latest beta versions.

      Lack of time

      I'm aware that I'm not updating the libraries, but there are some errors, and I don't have time lately to update.

      The project is not abandoned, but if stopped until you have some time (Maybe it's for a few days, or maybe for weeks).

      I apologize to everyone for it.

      I wish the days were of 34 hours... :(
