ALL MY ISSUES ARE GONE!
flash this updated stock kernel https://www.dropbox.com/s/q9uabseln4vc2ec/boot.img?dl=0
with this app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.mkrtchyan.recoverytools
Tested with today's cm12.1 nightly edit: it requires today's cm12.1 (14/05) nightly due to ramdisk changes!
People have been complaining about this for as long as I can remember, yet OnePlus continues to ignore us.
Anyway, if your phone is rooted, you can use jOnePlus Tools to change the quick settings accent color. Sadly you can only change the QS color.
Install NoLED and you'll have your notifications again. I remember using this on the Samsung Galaxy S and man was it sick. Nice to see madmack is still updating his app after all these years.
Use this to see what really is taking up all that space. Then you can use the file explorer or something like that to delete the files. The same thing happened to me, this is is how I solved it.
Just so we're all clear, niggles is actually a word and doesn't mean what it sounds like. Thanks OP for expanding my vocabulary today. I hope you find a solution to your clock/notch problem.
I got used to this browser on my S7 and I just can't use any other browser since then. Better UI than Chrome IMO but what's even more important is that you can use different ad blockers with this browser.
If anybody wanna try it, it's on the playstore:
Example: Stock camera vs GCam 6.1 on the OnePlus 6:
Google writes excellent camera software. Much of what makes a phone camera "good" or "bad" is the software. The Google camera also has unique features that you may or may not care about.
But as an unofficial port, things may be broken and nothing is guaranteed.
You can have both cameras on your phone at the same time if you want to take comparison shots yourself.
You can easily enable the native call recorder with the app jOnePlus Tools and if you have a computer available and know how to run adb commands.
If I remember correctly the native call recorder is disabled due to legal issues in other countries. Recording calls is not legal everywhere. But I might be wrong on this.
Anyway, here is the Link to the app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.jroot3d.joneplustools
This wishlist doesn't make much sense in real life… The CPU on the OnePlus Two will almost certainly be the Snapdragon 810, which will be the CPU of the flagship season and will ship with the Galaxy S6, the next HTC One, etc., not the Snapdragon 805, which will be outdated by then (especially since the 810 is the first high-end 64-bit chip). 3900 mAh is too high… batteries are pricey and this is a sub-$500 phone after all. Maybe something like 3300 mAh, which is higher than the top phablets (Note 4 and Nexus 6).
The rest seems nice: I'm totally fine with the 5.5" 1080p display, and I wouldn't like to see it increase to QHD for no reason. 3GB is enough too. I don't think the Two will ship with the IMX214, they'll probably feel the need to upgrade to a newer chip like the 21MP IMX220, which costs something like $8 more per unit (sources: 1, 2). Of course, I can't complain about front-facing speakers. :) And I'd really like to see those bezels shrunk and the capacitive buttons ditched as in your mockup. Don't expect the 64GB version to stay at $350 though… I'd expect it to cost at least $400 or $450.
Oh, and Qualcomm Quick Charge pl0x.
This was posted on XDA, 960 fps video showing how the OP5 panel refresh is inverted compared to Pixel and S8: https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipM6j4v40_vCZVgxAJeN2R_VHKet9YN0JOYHu9ZrE8As78qo6IfIlMLWY5NXF1lUEA?key=UUZCekR4TWY0ak56TWtKZ1UzTUhHb2t0WC1ZekFn
That's not proof, but speculation. It's very easy to understand why the settings app largely looks the same: Oxygen OS wants to maintain a consistent look.
I do notice on the Oreo beta that the settings pages themselves are Oreo style. Battery, Storage, etc.
I'm not saying you're wrong, just that it isn't proof. People have stated that it doesn't have Oreo APIs, which I think is a bold claim without proof. If OP isn't including all the Oreo APIs, that's a big deal, but I've seen nothing that proves that.
Side load it. You have to manually update it when updates release though.
Use activity launcher from the play store to launch it the first time, then there's a button to show it in the launcher. Or you can set a quicklink with activity launcher.
Settings > Display > Notch display to hide the notch but it still keeps icons in the blanked out space.
If you're on the home screen, there's a gesture you can enable in the launcher settings that allows you to swipe down from anywhere to bring the notification tray down.
Or you can try Nacho Notch and I believe it has a setting to achieve what you want.
Use Opera VPN from play store. Set the region as Canada and it should work. I tried all other VPN/ Region combos but they didn't help.
There is already a free app for that, OnePlus doesn't have to include it, we can disable it if we want. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.xda.nachonotch
For me will be the second thing I would do if I get the OnePlus 6, first thing being to unlock the bootloader.
I use it every day to pay for my coffee and for the Yubico Yubikey replacement for Google Authenticator. Yubico requires me to tap an nfc-ready keyfob to my phone before it will generate Authenticator Codes.

It's actually way easier, install Oxygen Updater and search for updates. Works like a charm.
Edit: in the settings you can choose between incremental and full update. And incremental update is advised if you are on the lates OOS version.
You are both linking to the "wrong" apk though. Our device supports arm64, so it should be recommended to also install the appropriate apk: https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/pranav-pandey/pixel-wallpapers-2017-port/pixel-wallpapers-2017-port-8-0-0-pp-6-0-arm64-release/pixel-wallpapers-2017-port-8-0-0-pp-6-0-arm64-android-apk-download/
Check AIDA64: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.finalwire.aida64&hl=en This would ideally show the right details. Refer this video(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mcTAXsFHu5I) which shows that the 3T has Snapdragon 821, and a 3400 mAh battery.
I downloaded this one about a month ago on my 3T.
If you still using OPO2 listen to me carefully. Root the phone, flash Linage 15 (OREO) and you will be delighted.
Just last week I wrote a step-by-step guide for my friend who never rooted android and it went without a problem for him, so there is no reason you should be 3 major android versions behind on the phone that is perfectly capable of running latest system.
I was meaning to post it once I get more testing, but so far everything works - Fingerprint scanner, WiFi, BT, GPS, Camera, HW buttons. Only issue I run into is that you can't type to live search in the settings (but you can access everything). My phone now has 30% more battery life since Oreo has dozing + you can pull even more with greenify + on the top of that with magisk you can further make the phone feel like new flagship. Add Google Assistant, Pixel Launcher and it is almost like you have a new nexus.
Also, I covered how to do full backup, linked to video and other guides and used most up to date stuff. If you run into problems, you can message me. You can also do that if there is something unclear in that guide 🙂Or you know, enjoy probably the last patch this phone gets.
There's a dude named Benson Leung who's been all over Amazon reviewing usb-c cables and making sure they're up to spec and such. Here's an example at this link.
Also, here's a google spreadsheet of the reviews that he's compiled as well. Any of the approved ones should be good, so you can just go for price at this point. However, my impression is that they don't use the proprietary Dash Charge that OnePlus incorporates into their cables, so you won't enjoy that benefit when using these cables.
Disk usage, the single most underestimated app on the play store : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.diskusage
This helped me free several gigabytes multiple times already
A few test shots from today.
The lamp ones are taken at night, lit up by the lamp in the frame, and another one behind me. Both taken in "pro" mode.
The one of my dog, is taken in portrait mode, in daytime, with cloudy weather outside.
The camera is better than the OP3 I came from, but nothing spectacular.
I'd rather get a Type-C dongle DAC. Simple adapters are pretty trash in terms of sound quality, at least on my 6T.
I use this: https://www.amazon.com/HIDIZS-Portable-Headphone-Amplifier-Smartphone/dp/B07F2DTTGT/
It works. Here's what Pro version adds:
>• Material Design Injection > >• Higher Customizations > >• More themes! > >• Facebook iOS and Google Plus UI > >• Notification Filtering - filter out notifications you don't want to see (or notifications you only want to see) using keywords > >• Quiet Hours (Do Not Disturb) - turn off notifications during selected times > >• Power Saving Mode > >• Retain Last Visited Pages
Those are really just extra features. Free version works very well, without ads or anything annoying. Only ads you see are the Facebook sponsored posts but those you get also on the official app. IIRC, the "Hide sponsored posts" option is only available on Pro.
Basically the OPPO R15 Pro on steroids.
R15 Pro camera samples:
Still worse than the OP3 with HDR+. But who knows, they might surprise us with a better sensor/processing/camera2api implementation. Although I'm expecting them to feed the hypetrain with "AI" buzzwords.
Rollouts are staged (a good practice to catch problems IMHO).
I use Oxygen Updater because I'm comfortable jumping the line. It immediately notifies you of new updates and lets you download them. You can install them in settings, no ADB required.
P.S. I love A/B partitioning. Update installs are super fast.
My OnePlus 3 changed the way I charge my phone. It charges so fast that I never plug it in at bed time. Whenever it has been a while since I charged and I'm close to my charger, I throw it on until this app notifies me that I have charged up to 80%. I still get great battery life so this appears to be working.
Ever since I got my first smartphone I came across SwipePad and have been using it ever since.
It's basically an app launcher which you can access from any app. It's gotten a bit buggy, but I've gotten so used to it that I can't switch.
If you are rooted and want to theme your device without buying a lot of substratum themes, swift installer is great. It's currently on discount.
From the description of the video:
Wired Display output through a Displaylink capable hub will often freeze and sometimes crash when the oneplus 5 is connected, and wireless display over miracast seems to not be properly supported either. What this means for the OP5 is that, in this current state, the phone cannot be docked and used like the s8 with Dex, making waste of the incredible specs.
To clarify, I have tried both the wired and wireless options for display output on the OP5 when it was stock, again when it was bootloader unlocked and rooted, and again with a few custom kernels, coming up with it not working properly each time. Therefore it's definitely not an issue with a rogue app or system setting/modification, but could be an issue with OxygenOS, as I haven't tried other roms.
I tried both displaylink presenter and displaylink desktop, though they're essentially the same app, and they have the same issues present.
If you have a Oneplus 5 and access to a displaylink or miracast compatible device, it'd be great if you could hook it up and give it a try, more info on the issue is definitely welcome.
TL;DW You should be able to get display output from the oneplus 5 wired and wirelessly, but due to what's most likely a software/firmware/OS issue, in my testing I can't get it working properly by any means, meaning it can't be docked or used for casting.
EDIT: Wording, also I hope /u/OnePlusUna , /u/Maggie-Song and the others can see this.
I'd use magisk now instead of supersu for root, as it has better ability to hide root and not trigger safetynet. Everything in your guide before that should be the same though https://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/magisk/official-magisk-v7-universal-systemless-t3473445
You can use Google Drive's backup feature and Google Photos also has unlimited photo storage for free. Use Google drive to backup everything except photos and use Google Photos to backup pictures.
The problem for many (including me) is not the removal of headphone jack. They could have provided an additional USB C slot so that I could charge my phone and have it connected to a headphone at the same time.
Otherwise companies could also have created an adaptor which supports both fast-charging and earphones. The only ones available on Amazon are those really cheap / dodgy ones!
If you install OnePlus Launcher 2.5.1 you'll get the old Recents style. But you do lose the Pixel pill gestures. I would disable automatic updates for this app in the Play Store if you go this route.
Edit: Warning, this may reset your widget and icon placements.
To revert: Open Play Store, search OnePlus Launcher, click Uninstall. Or Settings->Apps->See All->OnePlus Launcher->Click 3 button overflow in top right-hand>Uninstall Updates. Or try to install 3.0 https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/oneplus-ltd/oneplus-launcher-2/oneplus-launcher-2-3-0-0-180913182412-e068540-release/oneplus-launcher-3-0-0-180913182412-e068540-android-apk-download/
Just let me configure each setting individually! Is there an app that lets me do that? I'd be willing to root the phone for that feature.
Edit: I found one, but it requires xposed
Phonograph is pretty good, it is open source too, but the developer seems to be no longer working on it. However, the app is already very usable at current state.
There's a lot of options for music players on Android. Google Play Music is pretty good, and it can play local files, not just the stuff on Google Play. You can also try Shuttle, which is one of the best designed apps I've seen on Android, period.
As for the USB File Transfer thing, yes, you need to manually switch to file transfer mode when you connected to a computer. It's a security precaution to avoid exposing the files on your phone to the computer without your explicit permission. You don't have to switch it through developer settings though - you can just tap the "USB charging" notification to change the mode.
That's around the same as F-Droid right?
But the amount of apps could be a bit worrying for me.
Also if you only use such things, why have you decided to go with GApps and GServices? You know that there's MicroG available which is OpenSource and provides the functionality of GServices without Google stuff. https://microg.org/
What exactly are you looking for? The screens are still built-in "upside down" and this can't be changed because all OP5 devices need to use the same software+kernel and there is code in the kernel which flips display output by 180°. Every OP5 has this. Some see it, some don't, some are bothered by it, some aren't.
As you are using the OP3, install this app and flip your screen by 180°. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.crape.rotationcontrol Check for yourself. If you see jelly scrolling on the OP3 this way, you will also see it on the OP5. I notice it on my OP3 and it certainly looks weird, but I don't know if it would bother me on the long run.
Also all this "we dropped minijack to make it THINNER!!!" is pure bullshit. Here are 22 different phones thinner than 6mm and retaining 3.5" jack: https://www.gsmarena.com/results.php3?nThicknessMax=6&chk35mm=selected
Vivo X5Max for instance is 5.1mm thick and still has minijack.
I had to put a shell case on my OP3T not to "protect" it but solely to hold it more reliable. During the first few weeks I was freaking out every time when taking and putting it in the pocket, it is so thin (at 7.4mm) and slippery, it was insane.
You can make something that performs similarly. I have some camera batteries that are 11-16V with an Anton Bauer PTAP output. So I made a PTAP plug to automobile power port receptacle, and then bought a car warp charger. Using the car charger setup, I can do portable warp charging.
You could also make one yourself out of regular items like this:
Just wire a DC 2.1 plug for the DC receptacle, and then get yourself a car warp charger.
No, bluetooth is not a proper replacement for the analog jack. AptX-HD and LDAC are nice, and would suffice (at least for on the go listening) IF they could handle a stable connection. But they can't. Especially when you're outside.
I looked into it. If I wanted to go bluetooth with AptX-HD/LDAC I'd need a setup thats FAR more inconvenient than a simple 3.5 jack cable - A small portable bluetooth DAC/Amp that supports the codecs (Example), still a 3.5 jack cable and my IEMs, connected via bluetooth to my phone. Wow, where do I put the additional device now? Fucking clip it on my damn jacket?
All convenient "audiophile" solutions cost 150 bucks or much more, AND ONLY support normal AptX. For example the Plussound cables. Normal AptX is pretty damn horrible if you have good earphones, y'know. And no it's definitely not proper 16bit lossless.
So then there is the obvious solution. Do what many others do and buy some bluetooth headphones. But there is NO DAMN CHOICE of good headphones. All bluetooth headphones are midrange AT MAX, but already cost a shitload for the cheap quality.
Bluetooth is not, and will never be a proper replacement. There must be a new and proper music streaming standard before we can ditch the headphone jack for real.
Uninstall the OnePlus calculator and install the Google Calculator. It looks almost identical (at least on the OP3, I suppose it's the same on the OP5) but is has the separators.
Congrats on the transition! My highest recommendation is to download Nova Launcher Prime. I don't buy a lot of apps but this one is the best $5 I've spent as an android user.
It allows you to customize so much of the experience. It has its own sub and here is a good example of the flexibility of it
Try uninstalling the latest update for Android System WebView, which fucked over gifs/HTML5 video. Not sure how Reddit sync deals with YouTube video cause I use Reddit Is Fun, but opening any HTML5 video or gif in any app basically causes your phone to freeze.
TL;DR: Displays are calibrated to represent color accurately, which means being very white. However, at night or in a closed room with halogen lights, the screen looks blue because the rest of the light is reddish. That's the stereotypical blue glow of monitors. Some people just like the hue of the screen to match the rest of the colorspace around them.
Also, if you believe the scientific research, looking at blue-white light at night screws up your circadian rhythm (sleep cycle). The idea is that the only natural source of blue-white light is the sun, so our bodies have adapted our sleep cycle around that. The studies show that making the screen temperature warmer, or redder, reduces or eliminates this problem.
As a software engineer that often works on pet projects at home into late hours, f.lux has been amazing for my sleep cycle.
Switched to simple gallery and haven't looked back. Free version is 10x better. Paid version is very inexpensive and extremely worth it.
Putting every other amazing feature aside, the best part imo is just the fact that it loads instantly.
IMO the best ones are havoc os (features and battery life), crdroid (features and battery life), PE (stock pixel os) and derpfest (lots of features and UI customizations).
Only thing you're "losing" with the ROMs is the ability to change double tap actions. You can get back these featues by using this app.
I use these: https://www.amazon.com/AD-ADTRIP-Headphone-Compatible-Motorola/dp/B07NVDT57C/ref=sr_1_7?crid=2Q4XEM70M98MZ&keywords=usb+c+headphone+adapter&qid=1559201583&s=electronics&sprefix=usb+c+head%2Celectronics%2C168&sr=1-7#customerReviews
They fit in really nice and tight in the phone and grip the headphone plug well too, lol
I'm not an audiophile but to me the dongle+headphone sounds the exact same as plugging the headphones straight into my iphone or computer
It's a staged rollout but you can use Oxygen Updater to bypass that and get it right away. The app gets the OTA from the official source so it's reliable.
There is a fix to this- im very sorry i cant remember the name. but there is a download from play store, that changes the slider's settings to exactly what you're looking for! I found this on my oneplus 2 after looong time of wondering bout the exact same thing! i hope i can find it for you so you will know- try this one https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nqk.vibratemodeextended&hl=en
The default launcher doesn't support that. You can use Nova Launcher with TeslaUnread to get what you want.
Today Weather has a widget that looks similar.
Plus it's a great weather app to use, overall!
Edit: forgot the Play Store link
Are you already using the modded Google Camera (Gcam), which lets you use Google's HDR+ processing on the OnePlus 3T?
Samples: https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipOfEGSEZ4HlK6fbAIiZ5PhrZT5Xr9yns-cHwy0_myLfMaAxOTlqY_NxW0bLoAlnww?key=OEk1SkNwQXR3VVhTaWQ5Ulc0Ti1feXZ1WmNyN2VR It even offers the portrait mode, although it is only limited to people!
I recently switched from the OP3 to the OP6 myself. In regards of the camera, if you don't take a faster focus speed into account and compare OP6 (stock camera) to OP3 (Gcam), it was more of a sidegrade.
GCam isn't quite ready for primetime yet on the OP6 (slow focus, blue tint in shadows), but the stock camera isn't bad in my opinion. Here is another album which compares stock and gcam on the OP6: https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipPpBRkAk_tzfZO18oh5gs28CF6m_5hvPt-JTucH6XMc_s_hGQogHdeBUN-lucevyw?key=MklZYXJ2T3FsazBENnVNOE5Pc0tWVkZ2T055bk1n
If you are not pixelpeeping, you won't find much of a difference most of the time. Stock is warmer compared to Gcam, and sometimes tends to overexpose. Gcam offers more detail in textures and skin, but as I said is still slow to focus quite often.
I was thinking of returning the OP6 at first, but got so used to its performance and display that my OP3 just felt really dated. My main reason to order the OP6 was that my OP3's display is slowly popping out of the bezel.
I've not down voted you, but I imagine it's because people disapprove of using RAM cleaners. They have been proven to be utterly pointless unless you need to force close an app. Keeping an app in RAM uses less power than making the processor restart the app from fresh every time, and if you do run out of RAM, Android has its own build in RAM manager that should keep everything in check anyway. There's a decent run down of it here.
TL;DR Don't use RAM cleaners. Even 'built in' ones are pointless.
Aside from that though, I unfortunately cannot help you with the accessibility access issue, as I use neither of those apps! Have a nice day :)
People saying it's shit don't say it because it's not on par with current flagships. They say it because it isn't much of an upgrade to the 2 year old OP3, which even surpasses it when using HDR+. If the mod would run as good on the 5T as it does on my 3 I would've switched in a heartbeat already...
I know apologists might come and tell you otherwise, but none of those will provide you with actually good quality shots taken with the OP5/T. YouTube comparisons don't count in my book as they rarely show the real quality and exif data.

I used a tripod and BT camera shutter and took some quick comparison photos using different camera apps and settings with the latest OTA. I wish I had done this before and after the OTA, but such is life. Off the bat it looks like HQ offers the best results. Admittedly I'm not a photographer and have no idea if this is a good test or not, but you can clearly see some major differences in terms of noise and clarity. HQ looks the best to me. If you care to checkout the album click here: https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipN2KN_dXOGfuufLX0gaoOB14wEBu_S1QgQ9ioJzzvAFGpzUwbOtKkOfa5jeaIO7-w?key=TnA4VmxPenNaNWx1VW81WjlNUy1VYzNmWWRJbHd3
If they follow the pattern from previous devices, they will share the same camera hardware with the OPPO R15 Pro. It has a slightly larger main sensor compared to the OP5T, but still the very same useless second sensor.
>that would be the dummest move ever
That's to be expected from OnePlus.
>The R15 Pro, however, is a lot more inexplicable in its choice of a 20MP secondary snapper - the same found on the Oppo R11s and OnePlus 5T. It is not black and white, has practically the same field of view as the main one, so there are no ultra-wide or zoom capabilities. Not only that, but it has the same f/1.7 aperture, its sensor is a bit smaller at 1/2.8" and it has smaller pixels, at 1.0µm, compared to the primary 16MP snapper. That means that it isn't that much help with low-light shots either. So, it seems that its main purpose, beyond playing the PR numbers game, is providing depth information for portrait shots.
Of course this is pure speculation so far, but the past showed us that this will probably happen.
There are tons of dual screen or window in window mods in the Xposed Module repository. If you're running CM11S rooted, you can install the KitKat version of Xposed. If you're running CM12 Nightlies you'll need the Lollipop Alpha version of Exposed.
You can do pretty much anything you imagine with Android.
Works fine. I have one. Adhesive doesn't leave a residue if you need to ever take it off.

Reach ability cursor is your friend.
Quick Settings in the play store adds tiles. There is a tile for screen timeout that allows you to change screen timeout to a host of options very quickly, inclusive of 10 and 30 minutes. Works on my 6t.
Navbar apps is what you're looking for: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=pl.damianpiwowarski.navbarapps Great for changing either every app to a dar nav bar, or even better, change it to adapt to your current app. You can even get the keyboard extension so that your nav bar blends in with your keyboard!
Encrypts your traffic and sends it through one of many servers around the world so your traffic is hidden/anonymous. Not sure how good this VPN is though. I just bought NordVPN and while they are secure and trusted, the experience has been unpleasant. Speed crawls now, half the time apps can't connect unless I force stop and clear all data, just a general pain in the ass. Unless you are really concerned about hiding your traffic don't bother.
If you got this update could you please state your country.
I'm in England and have not got it yet.
EDIT: If you want to update, get ExpressVPN and get a week trial by supplying your email. Set to either Germany or Canada(depending on which is the closest) and you should receive the update then.
Normally, the app would be installed under a second (hidden) user or profile which allows 2 instances of apps to run at the same time. In this case, OnePlus hard coded the package names for the apps you can use in Parallel Apps.
If you use a Sandboxing app like Island for example, it allows you to install different versions of the same app by installing the other into the Work profile. It does the same thing as OnePlus only allowing you to "parallel" more than just the ones they're offering.
It also stops apps from accessing private information (such as phone numbers etc) which parallel apps doesn't do.
I had the same problem but in reverse: it synced the settings from my old Nexus 5 so every day at 11pm my phone would go on silent and there was no way to disable it - I'd have to just toggle the alert slider all the way up and back down, or wait until 9am. If you're okay with doing that then check out this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.aiuspaktyn.nodisturb
60% is waaaaay too much. Have you tried clearing the cache of Google Play Services and rebooting? That tends to be a solution for some people experiencing this.
If that doesn't work, and you aren't adverse to rooting, you could try this. In combination with that and a custom kernel I consistently have 0.1-0.3%/hr idle drain, 42 hours of time on with ~8 hours of SOT.
You can install DRMInfo from Play, which will tell you the Widevine security level of your device. If you're L3, then you're limited to SD playback. This was the case for the OP3 and many other devices, and for all custom ROMs, as far as I know.
Only L1 devices can play back content in HD. And only the factory, possibly with authorization from Google and/or others, can generate the crypto keys necessary for L1 status.
I use one of their smaller widgets (4x1 I think) and I made the background transparent. http://i.imgur.com/Ys9PcxO.png
Yeah dude was wondering why in my Phonograph music player app, it said no equalizer found. I'm using this app this guy recommended it is pretty good, no ads https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.pinpong.equalizer&hl=en
But there is! The app Notification Slider
It works exactly the way you would want it to and can be customized. I just wish that I could set it to down being silent and the top being full ring.
I keep going back to Deep Darkness - lovely theme with a lot of apps properly skinned as well.
Good mentions in the threads already, like Swift Dark and Euphoria Dark.
I am just nitpicking, it's got all the major features. As far as i can tell its missing LCD setting, Notification drawer settings and advanced reboot.
Features included: Buttons, Status Bar, Themes (I tried to theme Status bar with CM12 theme, it works), Privacy Guard, Display (except LCD), Root.
I just restored all my apps with data using TWRP (Nandroid), haven't had any issues so far. Marshmallow is buttery smooth.
EDIT: Just noticed an issue, if you are someone who uses screen pinning with hardware button enabled, you cant unpin it. it requires you to press recents and back to unpin (which can only be done through Onscreen nav bar).
2nd EDIT : 2nd Edit: In regards to the notification toggle edit, the UI tuner from stock android works, so we must be able to use Custom Quick Settings
If this method still works, it's even easier. :) As of last week, it was still working.
>If you install OnePlus Launcher 2.5.1 you'll get the old Recents style. But you do lose the Pixel pill gestures. I would disable automatic updates for this app in the Play Store if you go this route.
>Edit: Warning, this may reset your widget and icon placements.
>To revert: Open Play Store, search OnePlus Launcher, click Uninstall. Or Settings->Apps->See All->OnePlus Launcher->Click 3 button overflow in top right-hand>Uninstall Updates. Or try to install 3.0 https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/oneplus-ltd/oneplus-launcher-2/oneplus-launcher-2-3-0-0-180913182412-e068540-release/oneplus-launcher-3-0-0-180913182412-e068540-android-apk-download/
Battery Charge Limit (Stops charging at a desired level) - https://f-droid.org/app/com.slash.batterychargelimit
The latest version is only available on fdroid, otherwise you can find an outdated version on xda.
In case you might have missed this, the Google Camera HDR+ port has made this device even better!
Some photos I took recently with the mod https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipOfEGSEZ4HlK6fbAIiZ5PhrZT5Xr9yns-cHwy0_myLfMaAxOTlqY_NxW0bLoAlnww?key=OEk1SkNwQXR3VVhTaWQ5Ulc0Ti1feXZ1WmNyN2VR
Don't spread misinformation like that. It's not an extra pixel feature, screen recording is built into Android 11.
Here's a quote From android.com
"Built-in screen recording. Finally.
Screen recording lets you capture what’s happening on your phone. And it’s built right into Android 11, so you don’t need an extra app. Record with sound from your mic, your device or both."
While I (obviously, haha) think that OnePlus does make the best Android devices there are to buy, you should have one thing in mind – the OnePlus 6 is gigantic in comparison to your 5S.
These are their dimensions:
I believe that you will get used to Android pretty fast and on the hardware side there are only changes that require little to no adaption, maybe except that your fingerprint reader will be on the backside.
But seriously, about the size thing – please use a friend's phone that is comparable to the OP6 for a while so that you can see if a phone that big is something for you. OnePlus does not currently offer phones in an iPhone-size (apart from the OnePlus X, which is a great phone but outdated by now).
Good luck on finding your daily driver!

Root is required of course. If you are on Stock Cyanogen OS then no, the phone is not rooted if you do not root it yourself.
I have gotten dash charge cables from Amazon without issue, I just chose the one that had the most reviews. They're not super expensive, this one is $7.29
Have you checked if it charges with the same amperage? In another thread they took an usb-c extension and while the phone said dash charging (3500mA) it charged with a lower current (50-25% lower).
You can use the App Ampere to check it.
The problem is the AGPS data server.
You can get an external AGPS grabber. I'm using "GPS Fix", but every time that I open the GPS app I need to open the GPS fix first and wait like 15 seconds to get the AGPS data and a good GPS lock.
When you change from high accuracy to Device only you are telling your phone to ignore AGPS data and use just the GPS signal from the satellites.
USUALLY this is SLOWER and it has lower precision. Especially in cities with not a lot of sky visible. BUT, if the AGPS data is just not there (or just wrong), ignoring the AGPS data is a lot quicker and using a bogus one. This is a huge problem from OnePlus and they have absolutely no escuse to get this wrong.
just deleted the GPS fix to see if the update solved this. Still too ealy for a veridict, maybe in a couple days.
EDIT> No, it did not solved the issue. If you want a no hands approach i suggest changing from "High accuracy" to "Device Only". If you can deal with opening an app every time that you want to use the GPS, I use this, where you can reset AGPS data, download the right data and get a fix really quick. I'd say don't bother to get the paid version, for me it didn't helped with the Oneplus problem.
Tapet. It has a lot of cool wallpapers and will cycle them as often as you like. Anymore I just have it cycle through a folder of cool AMOLED wallpapers I downloaded.
its the deezer music streaming app, I can't get spotify from where I live and deezer is the only service that's available, I really like their interface really smooth and almost material designed.
I use this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=frinky.volumeKeys.music.controller
This only works when the screen is off but this is the only time I need to skip a track with the volume buttons anyway.
No, it's not a bug. It's both the fault of the app developers and OnePlus.
It's OnePlus' fault since they are giving the same model number to the US and EU OnePlus 3T that they gave respectively to the US and EU OnePlus 3 (A3000 and A3003).
It's the app developers fault since they only read the model number and fetch the specs from a database (well, they do this to speed the process up). So, when they detect A3000/A3003, they show you the OP3 specs.
Try AIDA64 instead.
It's not a Pixel exclusive, but it'll depend on OnePlus to either enable them or not. So, safe to say that we don't know.
You can install and use some circular icon packs. I've been rocking Click UI for years now, and I believe there are other icon packs that are free, just got to look them up on the Play Store.
*OnePlus 6 HDR+ vs. Stock *
Last but not least, these shots are mostly boring and just for testing purposes. My own verdict will come tomorrow.
So I found this article
According to it, apparently 4G+ and LTE are the same thing, just different terminologies used in different counties. Obviously, I have no idea if the information in that article holds any weight or not (I'd rather wait to hear back from OnePlus).
Maybe OnePlus programmed the OS for the 3T to display 4g+ instead and forgot to make it display LTE for us Americans?
This is what my [email protected]+ produces:
I would love to switch to the OP5T, but only if the issues with HDR+ from the OP5 are actually gone. So far the OP5T samples were mediocre at best and not worth the switch.
I bought this one. Works perfectly! Just keep in mind it is certified for use in China and not anywhere else in the world.
It seems to have gone up in price since I bought it... Probably only the Canadian exchange rate. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Official-Oneplus-3-original-5V-4A-Dash-USB-fast-quick-wall-charger-adapter-Dash-Type-C/32706047938.html?spm=2114.13010608.0.0.gt5oyI
this is a great site to compare them side by side: https://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=8647&idPhone2=8733&idPhone3=8720
looks like the XL 2 has a .5" larger screen, higher PPI(great for VR), and slightly larger battery. But considering its almost 2x the price the OP5 def blows it out of the water in terms of performance/price.
