The dark mode is one of the latest design trends in mobile devices. Its complexity goes far beyond changing the color white for the black, but to be integrated into the system itself offers a new depth to the way we interact with our mobile.
Of series, the dark mode in Android is quite simple, and while manufacturers like Samsung have done a great adaptation with multiple programmable modes, brands such as OnePlus had even as a pending subject, the better. Although the company plans to do so in future updates, there are already apps that will fix it, as this one that we tested today.
The dark mode of OnePlus, arranged by this application
This is not the first time that a developer comes to solving the weaknesses of Android. Specifically with the dark mode since we first met DarQ, an application that allowed us to customize how dark our mobile phone to the maximum. Today, we know of a alternative to specialized mobile OnePlus, less powerful in customization but with greater reliability.
The application has been created by Tommaso Berlose, developer which we have already spoken on previous occasions for possession of one of the best security features of Android 9 to earlier versions, or the widget of the Google Pixel 2 in any mobile.
The application is nothing more open it shows us a series of buttons, to either activate or disable the dark mode manually.
The manual activation is not a big deal if we compare it with the great absence of Oxygen OS, as is the ability to automate the dark mode. We can choose a range of hours or program it directly to the sunset and sunrise (for which will require location permissions, to be able to know at what time is day and night).
Finally, and not least important, it offers us the possibility of having a quick setting in which informs us when to activate or disable the dark mode, as well as the possibility of activating it and deactivating by pressing the quick adjustment. It’s that easy.
What do I need to activate this application
For its operation, this application to dark mode for OnePlus requires that we use the tools of developers, as well as a command from the computer to give you a special permission to the application.
- It is necessary to have a PC with Windows, Linux or Mac with ADB installed.
- In case you use Windows, this is the portable tool that we recommend.
- We set up the application.
- Activate the mode and developer mode USB debugging.
- Connect by USB the mobile to the PC.
- Open a terminal in a folder that you have access to ADB.
- We write the following command:
- adb shell pm grant com.tommasoberlose.darkmode android.permission.WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS
What will be the command that we have added since the debug mode is to grant the application permissions to modify the settings of our mobile. This permission can only add without root using this command ADB for security reasons, and once we have granted permission, the application will be able to control the activation and deactivation of the dark mode.
Keep in mind that the permit will remain active even if you reboot the phone, but there is the possibility that after an update we have to re-activate it. Now you just have to enjoy.
