i’m not sure what version of android your oneplus 6t is running but setting navigation bar to black works on my android devices and, more importantly, stock AVD. here’s the exact place where this style is defined for all API21+ devices:

unless you can figure out why this style directive is ignored by your phone, there’s not much i can do to help.

i usually don’t bother with vendor-specific bugs that can’t be reproduced on an AVD for obvious reasons, i.e. i can’t acquire every device under the sun to figure out why this specific fork of android, a horrible platform itself, is broken in this particular way.

This Oneplus 6T (A6013) run android 9 (OxygenOS 9.0.14).

Parameter > Display > Theme : dark

It’s probably a vendor-rom regression but in that case, is it possible to give a force black option ? Or a “use cover color” option for control bar like in open source Amaze file manager ?

“force black” is what the app does already. the color itself doesn’t matter, it could be any rgb value.

i’m not aware of any other standard way to adjust navigation bar color and honestly would prefer to not add hacks because of one possibly broken device.

however, i promise to take a look if a clean enough PR is submitted over this.

if that file manager is open source you can try figuring out how it sets the color, otherwise its not really helpful.
