Get the OnePlus Launcher with its recent apps interface on any Android Pie device (stock/custom roms) [Root]

Posted by

Jst a few days ago, the team behind the Lawnchair launcher app released QuickSwitch, a Magisk Module that allows for rooted Android Pie users to  change the recent app overview provider from the default implementation to a supported third-party launcher. Of course, Lawnchair itself is compatible with this module, but a developer has modified the stock OnePlus Launcher as found on the OxygenOS9 builds for the OnePlus 5/5T/6/6T to be compatible with QuickSwitch.

Thanks to XDA Senior Member paphonb who modified the APK, allowing it to be installed on any device running Android 9 Pie so long as it’s rooted. Paphonb is also one of the developers on QuickSwitch and Lawnchair.
