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.

- Root your device (it is necessary)
- Install QuickSwitch from magisk downloads, as mentioned in our video.
- Install the modded APK from AndroidFileHost, but don’t set it as your default launcher just yet.
- With any other launcher, open QuickSwitch.
- Set “OnePlus Launcher” as your recent apps provider.
- Now set OnePlus Launcher as your default launcher.
