    I purchased the app from play store and it showed as "Unsupported app version , Please download supported version from play store". Can anyone explain me why this is happening? I can't use this app even after purchasing loyally from the play store. Is this because of my device? My device is Oppo A5s, and is not rooted. Please help me.

  2. Richard Reed-avatar

    apk free download Absolutely cool app, you got to have a PC and a little bit of brain or you can't do this.

  3. Caden St John-avatar

    apk download I feel bad for the devs. This is a great way to bypass rooting your phone. Unfortunately people are stupid and can't figure out how to use the app. I use Substratum and Andromeda all the time, and I have never broken my phone beyond repair. Even if you brick your phone you can just run adb commands to remove the theme. So if you don't know what you are doing, don't try to use this app.

    mod apk Paid for an app thinking it will make my note 9 look different than others, with amazing themes and everything. No matter what I try or how many times I try, after installing the themes, it shows "system ui stopped working" and goes black screen. I had to reset my device more than 2 times to fix it. Utterly disappointed. Hoping to get my refund back!

  5. Alex Riddle-avatar

    andromeda aosp rootless 8.x apk Batch file doesn't work cause it can't find the correct path on my device. The Readme file is useless. Java client doesn't work (which is in alpha so I can forgive). To get any support they want you to download a 3rd party messaging app. This is already a 2nd app I downloaded just to use the 1st app. On top of that they ask you to pay sight unseen for the slim hope that this app will work on your device. The xda forum thread is full of unsolved errors and the most recent post is just "well it seems to be broken for now"

  6. Jaden Luu-avatar

    andromeda aosp rootless 8.x It's inconvenient that you always have to have your computer and your USB cable if you want to change themes! Can't it be easy as sungstratum on Nougat? Even it works perfectly, it wastes a lot of time and due to the March security patch of Google, it forces me to do a reboot and after that I have to reconnect my device and run the client again!

  7. Mihalj Hutkai-avatar

    andromeda aosp rootless 8.x apk download The Last version does not work properly. When I click on the icon my phone froze. I have issue with connection. I have to delete cache several times in order to connect. Tried to reinstall Andromeda and substratum but problem still exist.I did a hard reset the phone, but it's still the same problem. To install the themes I have to reset phone several times and clear cache in Andromeda app. OnePlus 3T, stock Oxygen OS. Please fix it. The previous version worked without problem.

  8. Jackie Chesser-avatar

    andromeda aosp rootless 8.x apkpure The support pages/chats have been extremely helpful. I have continued to play with the app after reading many guides online. There is more work than people may originally think required for this app, but support has been very responsive to help someone like me that is not extremely tech inclined. It does indeed work, but be prepared to put in work to get the results you desire!

  9. Nob Oddy-avatar

    andromeda aosp rootless 8.x apk cracked I'm giving it 5 stars for effort by a hard working team at least trying to bring us the ability to theme non rooted devices . I think people expect ease and perfection in a situation where theres no perfect solutions . Most of the people that complain don't realize the hurdles of overcoming non-rooted devices . Now for my review , it has a learning curve and don't expect 100 % results . If you learn how to use it as in connecting with the desktop client and following directions you can at least theme many apps which is a heck of a lot better than none . I have not been able to theme most stock apps such as dialer , contacts , navigation bar , system UI , settings and a few others . It does however theme google apps such as Gmail , drive , voice , play store and many others . Now for the people who bellyache and don't seek help I'm going to head to the support link for some help but I can tell you this is a promising app and I don't want my money back . I hope the dev will continue to support this app for those who appreciate it . Thanks developers and please keep this going . I

    andromeda aosp rootless 8.x free download useless piece of sh*"" i am a pentester working on rootless solutions and thought i will try this out and now it's.wasted so much of my time . 1. to begun with its not working on my realme 2 with android 8.1.0 with colorOS 5.2 and only two apps get themed with any theme or customization are play music and subtrantum itself nothing else . 3.they don't even let you refund ###########$## WARNING Don't BUY !!!!

  11. Aris Manzo-avatar

    The most recent update sucks. I had to do the "authentication" of connecting my phone to my PC 3X before i can finally make it to work. Waste of time and is an absolute nightmare to uninstall & reinstall everything only to find out that it doesn't resolve the issue. My S8+ is on the Oct security patch and worked perfectly well with the last few andromeda updates until recently. I don't want any apologies. I want quick resolution and make this work flawlessly like it did on previous updates.

  12. Neeraj Menon-avatar

    This app used to work perfectly fine but since the latest update it has become unusable. My setup is the same. When I run start_andromeda batch file from my laptop the script runs but substratum doesn't open up on its own like it earlier used to. When I manually open the substratum app and try to apply a theme it says substratum could not connect to Andromeda backend though when clicked on Andromeda app it shows green box with status showing 'Connected'.

  13. Abel Cheung-avatar

    App works fine mostly (except occasional disconnection after prolonged phone use). But there's some issue with Andromeda Launcher on Windows (6.0.0); it runs successfully on native cmd, but if I use other terminal emulator (ConEmu for example), program quits with System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException. Here is the output: Unhandled Exception: System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: The console buffer size must not be less than the current size and position of the console window, nor greater than or equal to Int16.MaxValue. Parameter name: width Actual value was 71. at System.Console.SetBufferSize(Int32 width, Int32 height) at ConsoleApp1.Program.Main(String[] args)

    I was really disappointed on using this app. Even though it managed to theme my phone with various themes available but at last my phone got into a bootloop. Its sad for me I have not rooted my phone and there was no way that I could access my phone data. At the cost of my data which where really important to me I factory reset my phone which was really disappointing . I really doubt the stability of the substratum themes available in play store. I would not recommend this app to anybody.

  15. Brian B.-avatar

    Took a lot of patience to get this to work. The link on xda doesn't have the batch file posted 3.4. 4 stars for not having the proper links in the description. I had all the proper drivers and adb already installed. I had to find a link on YouTube for the 3.4 batch file. So update your post on xda.

    app immediately crashes when opened. exception message is 'outdated version please download current version from the play store. I've tried this multiple times. using various APK managers to reset app cache Mets data, etc. i can appreciate the team's efforts to try to keep this going. but this is more trouble than it's worth. I'm running os 8.0 on a Huawei mate 10 EMUI 8

  17. Lennart Stahl-avatar

    In theory it's great. Not in theory the app is broken since the last update for a lot of users and apparently no developer cares :/ (Me and many other people reported in the telegram chanel but as I said the developers seem to don't even read it) Thank you for the answer. I reported in the telegram group serval times and got no answer apart from "uninstall and reinstall" which didn't fix it. 🙁

    Just checked in, been a long time since purchased this disappointment of an app. Developer still being very arrogant, condescending and blaming users for issues. LoL don't waste your money. Notice the amount of 1 star ratings LoL

    When you install a theme that says support your android version everything works perfectly otherwise don't try to install any theme that doesn't specify your android version (like for example android 8.1 and android 8 they are not the same ) and you might not be able to use your phone until you format it which what happened with me one time

  20. A Google user-avatar

    Seems like a great app. I installed it and installed a few things through the app. Then I decided it's not what I wanted and deleted the app. I got a refund but realized the things I had installed on my phone via the app didn't get deleted with it. So I bought it again to uninstall the black theme. I finished that and now I wanted a refund again but it didn't give me one. Probably cause I bought it twice but I don't know how to request a refund. Thanks

  21. Yea No-avatar

    Originally, this was not working, Andromeda still won't stay open on my phone, however, that's not relevant to the themes working on a Samsung device. You still NEED this application to use Substratum and its themes with a Galaxy device I recommend buying 2 or 3 different themes that are the kind you want. I wanted pitch black so I got 2 dark themes. Select the applications you want to be dark/pitch black, install them, reboot your phone, see what works and what doesn't and uninstall the ones that dont work from there

  22. Anthony Nguyen-avatar

    Bought the app because it was promising considering the potential of theming non-rootes phones. However, the app was quite buggy and Google eventually axed it. I suppose I can't ding the devs for that, but the app shouldn't have been paid if the devs wasn't sure if this would last long. I suppose you could simply not update your phone, but I do not think it is wise to stick with older version of Android just for the sake of themes.

  23. CELTZYT-avatar

    After the latest update I can't even access it on my Galaxy s8. Whenever I run the command from the PC it works but then Andromeda doesn't open and in substratum it keeps saying that can't connect to the Andromeda backend. I was really satisfied with this app for how it was serving me for last couple of months but now I can't even go in. Plz give me a solution of how to fix this and use it properly again. BTW, I uninstalled and reinstalled both the apps but still didn't work

  24. HKPD-avatar

    Do not waste your time with this horribly made app. Customer support doesn't exist, everything's broken, you need to activate this from your PC everytime you want to use themes, and so much more things that users don't want to deal with. I wasted my money on this app and I'm trying to help everyone else save their money. Do not buy this app, you will regret it heavily.

  25. Saurabh Sharma-avatar

    This is really amazing application for customisation my OnePlus. However now it's not supported because I'm using android 9. So when this will be available.

  26. peter goebbels-avatar

    Awesome app! ppl like deep six just don't know what they are doing! In spite of their supposed "experience" they are even clueless about what "bricked" device actually means! Andromeda does exactly what it's designed to do & for people who need help - The Telegram Group is perfect for them. Awesome app + Awesome support.

  27. JareDamn-avatar

    Did not work at all when I downloaded and open it said" Unsupported app version detected. Please reinstall the Andromeda app from the play store." Then it kicked me out of the app it really is disappointing because I really wanted to customize my Android 8.0.0 LG G6 and I usually wouldn't pay money to customize my phone but this time I decided to do it and it didn't even work, well lucky for me Google still was able to give me a refund I would be retrying if this problem is fixed

    I unistalled it due to some issues, and still I had to reinstall it back and remove all the overlays manually one by one, as my mobile gets stuck during each uninstall. I need my money back, and there is no refund option and I installed it for second time.

    I have run the batch file and now it shows connection status as connected but the substratum app does not work. It always shows that verification failed try to force close and open the app again. I have tried reinstalling both apps rebooted and tried but still no success. I am using Samsung galaxy s8

  31. A Google user-avatar

    9 out of 10 reviews say this app doesn't work. So instead of offering refund, the developer wants you to join telegram for support. This is a tricky scam they're doing. They will waste your time so that you won't be able to ask for refund after the 2 hour limit. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY! YOU WILL REGRET BUYING THIS APP!!! *Your reply to my review only strengthens my point. You like to argue with your customers instead of being polite, courteous and helpful. But it's too late anyway. Your reputation is screwed, as the app reviews show. People see right through your BS, so please go ahead, pound that last nail in the coffin! Thanks for helping me show everyone exactly just how pathetic you really are as a developer!* *You can keep lying if you so choose, it doesn't matter to me, you've already lost me as a customer. What you are doing now is called denial. But your customers aren't stupid. Eventually they'll all walk away, and your app will disappear very quickly!

  32. Archit Mehta-avatar

    Nasty UX 1) Installed this app when I had EMUI 8. 2) Once I learnt the app isn't compatible with my phone. I immediately requested a refund. But that didn't happen. 3) Almost an year later, I'm still waiting for the refund. 4) AS PER GOOGLE'S POLICIES, THE DEVELOPER CAN REFUND WHENEVER! 5) Can't belie the developers are so arrogant and are willing to lose future customers over simple refund. 6) Other people have faced these issues 7) I even made a promise to buy their launcher after refund to support their work. 8) Gratitude towards your customers works better than sarcasm.

    Payed, downloaded , doesn't work, can't be refunded ...

  34. Jimmy Jimenez-avatar

    I've never had a problem with the app, I see a lot of other people that does but to me must be user error, I have a note 9 and not sure what happened but I can reboot my phone and keep linked with substratum, before I thought you had to run command again via PC

  35. Eric Sullivan-avatar

    I originally purchased this app with the intention of running the Swift Theme through Substratum on my LG Stylo 4. I got an original refund when I uninstalled the app the first time. I was talking with some supporters of the app on Telegram and decided to give it another shot. Then I found out my device is not supported without a PC but Samsung devices can use Sungstromeda without root or a PC. I requested a 2nd refund as I dont own a computer and this app wont work for me but the developer refused and claimed this review to be "bullying"

  36. Aditya Kadiwal-avatar

    I have little exclamation marks when I'm in the overlays tab for any theme. When I try applying it, it either says Substratum cannot talk to Andromeda backend or it just crashes and says Your system reloaded substratum resources. Didn't work at all. Edit: I did a factory reset and it started working. Thank you.

    Apparently I had LuckyPatcher installed and it had been causing interference with the Andromeda app. Once I uninstalled Lucky Patcher and reinstalled Andromeda, the App started working. thank you for your cooperation. Now I just need to figure out the Adb device drivers part, somehow.

    Legit wasted my money, I installed this to make my interface look different, but all just in vain. Installed a theme, didn't work, booted, rebooted, nothing worked. Infact it had to be rebuilt again after the reboot. Very disappointed.

  40. Joel Zou-avatar

    hi developer, i wanted to try it so i did the purchase of this app and followed every step and was successful in changing the theme( well most of it ) but my device started acting weird so i uninstalled the apps and did the refund oblivious of the fact that i will need the app to remove the i was forced to pay again to reinstall the i cant get a refund..i was wondering if you will be kind enough to do a refund for the purchase i had to make. waiting for your response Thankyou.

  41. Jason Ronimous-avatar

    Worked great for a while on my Note 9. Eventually several Google apps stopped working and I had to remove this app to get them to work again. Neat concept but not recommended.

    the windows app that you find in tutorial its not commjng with all the files are needed and i had to search older version with all the files, and this one is not working every time and is freezing at connection and you have to wait 2-3 minutes until it start to work

  45. Gus Krokos-avatar

    not working as supposed to.. needs constant connection to a PC to keep it synced with substratum, and even when it is connected the end result is not as it should be.. better root the phone than pay for this

  46. J. Tisdale-avatar

    It works. You need knowledge on how to apply the themes you cannot just apply them without knowing what you are doing. This app has low rating because people want plug and play.

  54. Fivemilacc-avatar

    Literally doesn't work Edit: After waiting 2 days for a fix, and still not getting one, I can now conclude that the customer support is non-existent. After answering their questions, they went idle, and I didn't hear from them. Don't waste your time on this app

    Didn't really work that well so uninstalled it, which caused outlook to crash. Reinstalled (losing the option to get a refund) and removed each theme item individually to fix it.

    It's awesome man. Perfectly working on my Sony Xperia r1 plus Android 8.0.0. I wish there will be a way by which we don't have to require pc in order to activate Andromeda server. But it definitely worth it.

    Still works, but only when I don't open Andromeda itself. When launching the app, it stops responding.

    Doens't work since last few weeks. Can't install overlay ,it gets stuck while installing overlays everytime. Such a waste. So much time wasted to get this app work right.

    This app works great! Just have to reinstall every time I restart the phone. The app just gets hung otherwise.

    It works perfectly on my phone. I'm using xperia xzp and I'm loving it even more because of this.

    I reintstalled this after Substratum wasn't working, and now the script will not open Andromeda. It does not like the November update, perhaps.

    The app and the main one isn't working. Even after following all instructions in the xda developer forum, I am unable to get this to work. I want a refund.

    The app works but gets regularly disconnected. Lots of issues in Oreo. Hopefully it'll be fixed soon.

    Yes this needs an update since it doesn't work with the new Samsung updates.. But the theming still works.. So i'll keep it to 5*!

    The app is getting stuck immediately after giving it access from the client..... It wasa working perfectly before. Tested on Nexus 6P(Oreo 8.1)

    Why it always disconnects after rebooting my phone, every time i need pc to run the script to use substranum, very dissappointing with this app due to this😞

  82. Best Yet-avatar

    Total waste trying to find an overlay to work. An hour later the refund button is gone. I went back to press refund and there was no button.

    Turned out to be great initially but with the new changes in Android OMS policies this has become very frustrating to use.

  84. Tod Imanuel-avatar

    I paid it and i can't even install the app. I've rebooting my phone 3 times and nothing seems to work. I use galaxy s9

  85. Kushagra Kasbi-avatar

    Works great on my Note 8. If you love customisation and don't want to root then this is the app to have.

    Good app Happy to use it but one thing that hurt me is :/ design a file that we can run in android it self i dnt have pc i selled out last year due to some financial problems im sure im not alone here bring this sh to android easily please otherwise all good :)

  87. Imtaz Hussain-avatar

    I need full refund. Keeps giving me error even after following every step to the word given the tutorials and instructions.

  88. Tommaso Ercoli-avatar

    The themes don't work after reboot and i have to connect the device to a PC every time to make them work.

    i have been trying to download the andromeda desktop client for 2hours and counting. it is still searching for mirrors. this is a paid app. wth. you cant give a link that actually works? again.. this is a paid app.

  90. Pradeep Miraje-avatar

    purchased this app in my Nexus 5x, after couple of months getting some security update, it stopped working on my phone. Total waste of money..

  91. Karan Patel-avatar

    Cant Even add my device to Andromeda pc. Worked well year ago. Now its worthless app to purchase. You won't be able to apply substratum theme using Andromeda

  92. Pankaj Azad-avatar

    Theme no longer works after power saver mode of samsung galaxy a5 2017. The substratum shows all overlays are installed. Rebuilding and reinstalling didn't help. Please guide...

  93. Charanjeev S-avatar

    Rubbish. I've not yet been able install / use it. The desktop client just doesn't connect even after several attempts.

    Not working on honor 8. Disconnect immediately after unplugging from pc. Only stays connected while connected to pc

  95. Aman Mishra-avatar

    My MI A1 crashed applying theme using Andromeda + substratum...Now I have to reset my mobile and I have to definitely loss my all data ... It's a warning to others...

  96. Caeser Gaming-avatar

    I have installed this app today... After connecting this successfully ..whenever I try to install app it isnt working... What a waste of time ...

    When I was on 8.1 it worked beautifully. Of course it doesn't work on Android 9.0, nor does it promise to.

  98. Joe Heffron-avatar

    Only functioned a single time: Substratum constantly complains of 'cannot connect to the Andromeda backend' while applying overlays.

  99. nailclipper-avatar

    Doesnt work on my a7 2018. Used another installer and the theme worked. Doesn't help that the telegram support chat just ignores my questions. Can I get a refund? I already got the theme I want working with another installer.

    Great to see that us unrooted people still have a way to use subs. Great work as always. Now I can use themes again after the J7 Oreo update!
