The largest new feature in Android 10 is the system-wide dark mode. Both Samsung and Google phones have it, so third-party support is everywhere. The only problem is that OnePlus has forgotten a way to quickly turn dark mode on and off.
You should imagine that a dark mode switch is on their task list, but for the time being it is still missing in the latest version OxygenOS Android 10 update. But the good news? Developer MOARStuff heard the misery of the OnePlus community and wanted to fill that void. He has created a root-mod app that gives you a Quick Settings switch for dark mode, so it's always a swipe and a tap away.
First you have to remove the OnePlus Dark Mode Toggler app from the Play Store. The developer has explicitly stated that the app is completely free of advertisements or freemium functions. He only does this for the community, so you should give him a thank you if you found this mod useful.
Step 2: Add dark mode to your fast settings
You do not even have to open the app. Simply swipe twice from the top of your screen to fully expand the Quick Settings menu, and then tap the pencil-shaped edit icon in the lower-right corner of the overlay.
The Quick Settings overlay is now expanded to the full screen. The bottom half contains your inactive tiles. You may have more than one page that you can access by swiping left or right along the bottom half of the screen.
Somewhere in those inactive tiles you will find one that & # 39; Dark mode & # 39; is called. Hold down this tile for a long time and then drag it to the top half of your screen and drop it between the active tiles. Now tap the back arrow on the top left to save your settings.
Now you can press the "Dark Mode" button that you have just added, then close the Quick Settings panel and you will see a root access request. Tap & # 39; Grant & # 39; here, and your theme will jump to dark mode with one tap. Tap again to return to the light mode. Having this new functionality is enormously beneficial. Let's hope OnePlus adds this to the official version of OxygenOS soon enough. Lots of fun!
The main reason you are here is to quickly select a switch to switch from light to dark mode. But since you have already installed OnePlus Dark Mode Toggler, you might want to see a few other cool things it can do.
Open the app to the main screen and you will be greeted with three consecutive permission requests. One asks for background information, one asks for your location and one asks for media. Press "Allow" or "Reject" for everyone and choose what works best for you. If you plan to use all functions, you probably want to give access to all three permissions.
I will give you a brief overview of each section about what options you can expect in the app. There are not many settings to complicate things, but enough to cover to give you a warning before you dive into yourself. View it below.
You can activate the dark mode or the light mode by pressing the corresponding button for each button. It is exactly the same as the tile for quick settings, but from within the app.
Allows you to activate the automatic day (light mode) and night (dark mode), so it works according to the actual time. That is why the location information is required so that it can know when sunrise and sunset are for your area. You can also set the time manually if you want to prevent your location from being accessed via the app.
You can set specific custom backgrounds that change automatically depending on whether you are in dark or light mode.
In this section you can add your own custom Substratum themes to complement your dark or light mode setting. You can also enable "Force-Dark Mode" to let all apps use the dark mode. Usually found in the developer options of your device, it is here for easy access.
