Notification icons
« on: July 02, 2015, 02:11:46 am »
I just did an core software update to my Droid phone ( Verizon - 23.11.38) and now my Aqua Mail new mail notification icons are all white in color. They used to be different colors based on the email account it came from. Any help?

Hi,
Unfortunately this is a limitation on system level coming with Android Lollipop 5.x.

Google's decision.

Android 5.0+ forces status bar icons to pure white even if an application uses color icons.

This only applies to apps marked as "designed for Android 5.0" (in the app's install file), and AquaMail is. It's necessary for color status bar and a bunch of other things.

Sorry for storming this thread, but I looked at sources and I believe we (I) can do simple Xposed module for it :)

Just I don't know how to name it. Something short and simple. "White-less Status Bar" ?

Super - hacker - man coming to the rescue, hooray!

I'd call it "color notification icons" or "the revenge of color notification icons" or "color icons II, the final fight"

( no, I have not been drinking )

But here is the $64,000 question -- would I be able to check for the presence of this module from my side?

Yes, easy way - check for package name, whether user has it installed.
Harder but proper way to be sure it is enabled - add some method like "isXposedModuleForWhitelessIconsEnabled" in X class (AquaMail's utils?) and return just false. Than I can hook this method to return true.

I can check for package name, no problem.

Didn't know that Xposed modules were installed as .apk files each.

I had to pospone it since I have other coding projects (IT university). Next week I will go home so I would be able to do it.

Sorry that I dig this old thread again:
Is there any news about this project?

We have a task for this but I'm not sure if it's in our top priorities right now.
