How to enable Always-on Display on Oneplus 7/7T series running Android 11.
For a long time, Always-on Display has been a feature on various smartphones. Ironically, before the release of OxygenOS 11, OnePlus devices did not have a true AOD implementation.
However, this popular feature was not included in the first Android 11-based Open Beta releases for the OnePlus 7 and 7T series. Now, Oneplus has also confirmed that Always-on Display feature won’t be coming for Oneplus 7 and Oneplus 7T users.
Once again, the XDA developer community has come up with a solution. The code for the always-on display mode was left in the initial beta firmware by the OEM, which may be used to unlock the function for these devices.
All we have to do, as discovered by XDA Recognized Developer Quinny899, is run the following command in a root shell to cause the OxygenOS “OPFeatures” framework to eject.-
setprop sys.aod.debug_support_always_on 1
After executing the command and then reloading the system UI (using
pkill systemui), the option to enable AOD will appear under Settings > Display > Ambient Display > Always on ambient display.
Keep in mind that the technique of restoring the always-on display indicated above does not survive a reboot. If you’ve already used Magisk to root your OnePlus 7/7T running OxygenOS 11 Open Beta, then follow the below instructions:
- Download the attachment from this thread.
- Note that although the attachment is a ZIP file, it is neither a Magisk Module, nor a recovery-flashable ZIP.
- Extract the ZIP file to get the script named
aodenable.shout of it.
- Using a suitable root file manager, copy the script to
/data/adb/service.d.( Developer have created a magisk module which can be found below)
- Set its permissions to
- Do a reboot.
- That’s it!
