ForceStatusBar example

App for enforcing status bar in attachment.
If there is any problem with this apk please contact me and I will reupload fixed version.
Installer can ask about enabling Unknown Sources which is required.
I may later publish this on Google Play if there will be request from more people.
Rest my apps for Boyue in raw version:
* IOBooster (On my device I achieved twice faster dictionary browsing)
* Refresh Screen on status bar touch.
* Dictionary Icon on status bar (which opens dictionary in portable window).
* Audiobook player icons on status bar (backward, pause, forward, bookmark) for controlling audiobook without displaying any window.
* Automatic Text To Speech for dictionary.
* APP for Controling frontlight and temperature (I can make adaptive light too)
* Automamtic Wifi enabler and disabler on selected apps (when app starting and closing).
* QuickBookmarks for Chrome
* Menu key shortcut in notifications.
* Plex Controller (more functions than native plex client like small steps backward and forward)
* forcestatus bar for all apps (cpu & battery friendly).
I fixed (not mine) apps: Os Monitor and ChallengerViewer which now working properly on Mars.
I don't have time to publish everything together but maybe later one after one.

Update:
v1.0.1 - stability improvements

Now, I am trying to find a good launcher to use. I do not want to use Relaunch (I don't see the point of having a file manager for a launcher). I am currently using E-Ink Launcher, which is nice and simple, but I'm interested in trying out the Onyx Boox launcher. I Can't seem to find an APK anywhere. Would anyone know where I can download it?
Link to the second launcher you're using?

Also, what do you all use for icon packs that are similar to Boyue's stock app icons?

For those who're desperately waiting for the google play update, maybe you can install yalp store. It's basically a lightweight play store which can be easily installed on almost any device.

I didn’t know about yalp store. Thanks. It will update all the apps I have installed on my Likebook Mars. That’s all the Play Store I really need - and without the extra battery drain of the extra google apps.

Has anybody tried listening to the audio ? I tried via headphones and the 3.5mm jack and the quality was awful. This was using the built in music player and also Youtube in Chrome.

Today I tried a pair of bluetooth headphones and it paired fine and told me it was using the audio profile but no sound came out of them despite turning up the volume.

I guess, I'll just play music from my phone but then I kind of wonder why they bothered to put a 3.5mm jack on it.

Q: Is it legal to use Yalp Store with my own Google account?

A: No. Yalp Store violates §3.3 of Google Play Terms of Service. Your account might be disabled, robbing you of any apps you have purchased.
Source: https://github.com/yeriomin/YalpStore

Quote:
3.3 You agree not to access (or attempt to access) Google Play by any means other than through the interface that is provided by Google, unless you have been specifically allowed to do so in a separate agreement with Google. You specifically agree not to access (or attempt to access) Google Play through any automated means (including use of scripts, crawlers, or similar technologies) and shall ensure that you comply with the instructions set out in any robots.txt file present on the Google Play website.

A shame, but it did sound too good to be true. Sadly the only evidence the developers offer against this happening is essentially: (we think) nothing bad has happened to users of this yet (because we haven't heard otherwise).

Thanks for uploading that! I can't speak for anyone else, but I'd also be interested in seeing the others, especially: refresh screen on status bar touch, app for controlling frontlight, automatic wifi enable/disable.

Figures. It’s perfect for e-ink. Fast and the fraction of the size too.

New update! 1.0.3-2018101818. Auto-refresh on third party apps fixed. A new "app store" added besides Play Store. Those are the main changes I have seen.

I got update BYRead-V1.0.3-2018101819 last night. BySettings was renamed UserSettings, Settings was renamed Android Setings, and a new App Store appeared. I found Google Play Store in this app store and installed it, but it would not run. I then checked the gear icon in the Apps Settings and found the "Enable Google Framework" option. I turned this option on, but Google Play Store still does not work. When I tap the icon, it does not run. Is there anything else I can do to get Google to work? I have an early model that did not get Google Play earlier.

Did you reboot after these actions ?

I have been listening to Spotify with my 3.5 mm earphones, and it sounds just fine. I also listened to Hearts of Space via hos.com on Sunday night with FlashFox, and it also sounded fine.
