Anybody able to manipulate the SettingsProvider.apk?

I need one which sets "Disable HW overlays".

Hello Oma,

I think there's a build.prop setting for that, I'll check if I can find it back.

Would it fit your needs ?

 

Cheers.

Yes, when it will set a permanent trigger.

Result is here:

/data/data/com.android.settings/shared_prefs/com.android.settings_preferences.xml

But it will be overrided (I guess by the apk) on reboot.

The variable I was referring earlier is: sys.hwc.compose_policy

It is set to value 6 in build.prop for most Rockchip devices, I was expecting to "Disable HW overlays" by changing from value 6 to 0. 

I tried on a live tablet, doing a getprop on that property returns the same value no matter if the setting is checked or not. Making a setprop to 0 does not change anything.

I also tried changing the build.prop in a firmware, flashing it and booting on it, no change either.

I'll have a closer look at the Settings and provider APK and will keep you posted.

Cheers.

This looks like a good undocumented Android trick, nice findSmile
