GESTURE NAVIGATION WITH THIRD-PARTY LAUNCHERS IN ANDROID 11 (NO ROOT))

Good morning everyone. First, I hope I am in the correct section to post this. I’m not a developer, I just want to share what the ultimate solution was for me. This process worked great for my Xiaomi Mi 9 (cepheus) with MIUI on Android 11 and also with AOSP ROMs, I am currently on Evolution X. NO ROOT REQUIRED.
I must clarify that in the AOSP the navigation by gestures works very well, but I applied this method to remove the space that is on the keyboard, I attach an image to explain myself better.​

Before After

►►► HOW TO USE GESTURE NAVIGATION WITH THIRD-PARTY LAUNCHERS IN ANDROID 11 ◄◄◄

1. First it is important to have one of the apps:
– Infinity Gestures
– Fluid Navigation Gestures (I chose the Pro version)

2. Reboot your phone in recovery mode.

3. If you use:
Orange Fox: You go to MENU > MOUNT and check the boxes for CACHE, SYSTEM, DATA.
TWRP: You go to MOUNT and check only the boxes for CACHE, SYSTEM, DATA.
In both cases the ENABLE MTP option is activated, check it just in case.

4. Use MinimalADB & Fastboot or if you want, Platformtools to open a command console.

5. You write without quotes

, you hit ENTER and you wait for it to detect your phone.

6. Without quotes, put the command

Code:

"adb pull /system/build.prop"

and hit ENTER.

7. In the MinimalADB or Platformtools folder you will now see a file with an unknown extension called “build.prop”. You give it RIGHT CLICK > EDIT or RIGHT CLICK > OPEN WITH > NOTEBOOK (or any other editor of your choice).

8. You go to the end of the file and ADD without the quotes a last line that says

9. SAVE the changes and CLOSE the editor. You return to the command console.

10. In the command console you write without quotes

Code:

"adb push build.prop /system/"

and press ENTER.

11. Now you have to reboot your phone. Once it starts you will see that you no longer have the navigation bar (buttons).

12. You open the gesture app that you have downloaded, you block it so that the task is not deleted (apply the padlock), you grant the app all the permissions it asks for. In addition, you must go to APP INFORMATION > BATTERY SAVER and there choose the first option “NO RESTRICTIONS” as well as see that the AUTOMATIC START option is ACTIVATED.​

NOTE: This point applies to MIUI, in the AOSP it is not necessary.

13. Enjoy gesture navigation with third-party launchers on MIUI and space on the keyboard for AOSPs.
