I’m still trying to figure all theme things out, but I managed to create and upload my first Theme apk. HOWEVER, I can’t seem to find it in the store. Even though it is for sale for a week now. Seller portal explained that I had created a R apk theme. I need to create a Q apk. How do I do so?
On the app store you will only see themes compatible with your phone (device), and you aren’t on Android 11 yet so won’t see the theme. 99.9% of customers aren’t on A11 yet so no one will see it
In the tool you will see at the top left you have created a 2021 or “R” or Android 11 version. Save it as a 2020 version which is “Q” or Android 10. You will need to go through the entire 2020 theme version though and check everything because the conversion isn’t 100%. For example, the dialer background images are completely different in the two versions. Good luck
Then update your theme in the Seller portal and add the “Q” binary APK.
Thank you! I appreciate the help.
Would someone using an android 8 (oreo) be able to use a Q theme???
If they are on Oreo, I think they will only see Oreo compatible themes in the theme app. Although, I am able to install an R theme on my Q device from GTS using the install tool, so I’m not 100% sure. With the November security update changing image formats from QMG to PNG in the APK files, I don’t know if older phones get this update; if they do they won’t be able to use newer themes. Sorry, can’t be of much help here, only way is to have customer test it.
