This is a continuation of my other Pixel Mod post. This is a pixel mod for OPP3.

What's included:
-Pixel Accent Color
-Round Icons
-Luthepa1's Black Boot Animation
-Pixel Audio
-Pixel Launcher
-All Rotations (0, 90, 180, 270 degrees) Because I like it
-Night Mode

What's missing:
-DT2W - I enabled this and it was causing problem so it's a WIP
-Nav Bar - Almost done


If anyone could test this out and let me if it's all working for them, that would be awesome. For some reason, Substratum was needed to (somehow magically) enable Device Theme in settings. That was key to some of the pixel mod. But I tested later and was able to work without it. For some reason, this seems to bring night mode too. But I wanted to release this to see if the accent color and Icons were working for everybody else. :good:

If you want to manually set the Pixel Accent Color (Find my comment below - It's extensive) that should work. However, if you want a workaround that's simple, flash this workaround https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=673368273298969440
That'll have the Accent Color just like V2 had

Installed it, got a fail message in twrp when flashing but i got round icons (for icons that could already be changed in pixel launcher), night light and boot animation but no blue accent color or device theme option

Great job btw !

Edit : Substratum installed, before flashing your mod i had the dt2w option under display settings but now it's gone

All good here. I've not got substratum. So, I don't have Pixel Accent Colours (I think). Navigation bar as you said isn't on yet. Round icons working good.
Thank you. The Accent color worked for me, but suspected it was because of me getting Device Theme to work previously and enabled the pixel theme. So once I uninstalled and reflashed this mod, it accepted the Pixel Mod by default.

Was there an error message for you in TWRP?

I believe that error message comes from trying to flash something into the vendor. The blue accent color actually comes from a theme similar to what you'd see in Substratum. It's interesting. Google placed the apk for the Pixel Theme in the vendor.img. For some reason, when trying to flash there I get an error message sometimes and sometimes not.

Thanks for the feedback. I turned off DT2W for this mod. I had the switch enabled but it was causing some issues when I was attempting to make it work. Thanks for the feedback

Flashed but got an error 7. Night light and round icons working fine. Nothing else is active.

The issue with the Pixel Accent is this:
Originally the Pixel Accent was a modification in the Framework-res.apk. Now that's changed. It's actually a theme apk (similar to substratum) in the vendor partition. TWRP doesn't support modifying this partition which is what causes the error. I accidentally found a workaround to this I'm trying to isolate what it was

And i dont have Rounded Icons..... (On me Nexus 6p Android 8 DP3) --- screenshot --->

I am having the same problem with the Error 7 in TWRP. But flashing V2 yields the accent colors but V3 removes the accent colors but enables round icons

I solved it in the weather customization of the google app.

V2 and V3 go about changing the accent color differently. As a workaround in V2, i modified framework-res.apk. Normally this had the accent color, but instead it was now a reference code that just pointed to all the different shades of teal. I changed these to the pixel colors (there's multiple). This gave the accent but actually changed some things from teal that weren't supposed to.

I now have figured out how the Pixel gets its accent color, and it's not through framework-res.apk. It's actually an app placed in the Vendor, that works like an overlay/theme.

I've tried implemented this, but TWRP doesn't flash to the vendor partition. I need to find a way to enable the device theme setting that used to be in OPP1 AND 2 also so it can be selected.

If you want to use the Pixel Accent, extract the zip, go into the vendor folder and follow it until you find the PixelThemeOverlay.apk. You'll have to manually place it into your vendor folder, and you'll need to make that file structure. Folders need to be made with permission 755 and the APK needs to be 644.

After that install Substratum and apply a compatible theme such as Of Accents found in this forum. Reboot and possibly wipe cache. Go into Display settings and at the bottom there will be a setting called "Device Theme". Tap it and then choose Pixel instead of your Substratum theme. You can then disable your Substratum theme or even uninstall it. But if you uninstall the overlay, your setting will be gone. You'll still have the Pixel Accent Color

There's NO easy way in getting this I guess. Will give it a shot tonight.:cool:

    Can u tell that what variable or parameter affect round icon? cause i want a modified without round icon (original icon shape) by myself

    It takes place in Framework-res.apk. I'm not sure if this is necessary, but it use to be and I do it for good measure. There's a bool line named something like "Config_UseRoundIcon". Change the value from "False" to "True".

    The new thing is a new string. There's a string labeled "config_icon_mask" and the value is a big long code. The 6P and Pixel have different values, which makes sense being that they have different default Icons. Change the value to the same as Pixel to have round Icons (Also might need Pixel Icons app installed, I do also for good measure with this mod). For stock Icons, you return the value to stock.

    The value for Round Icons is this:
    M50 0C77.6 0 100 22.4 100 50C100 77.6 77.6 100 50 100C22.4 100 0 77.6 0 50C0 22.4 22.4 0 50 0Z

    The value for Stock Icons is this:
    M50,0L92,0C96.42,0 100,4.58 100 8L100,92C100, 96.42 96.42 100 92 100L8 100C4.58, 100 0 96.42 0 92L0 8 C 0 4.42 4.42 0 8 0L50 0Z

    I used MTExplorer to modify the Resources.arsc

    I can upload a mod with stock Icons if you want me to

    Great, I'm sure I'll wake up to a new mod, missed it a lot. Greet job mate. Keep it up.

    Anyone daring enough to try the last builds if this on OP4
    Probably won't work on DP4. Should bootloop. I'm downloading DP4 now, and I'll have a mod up soon
