The LMT Pie is that circular menu you get when you press on your screen with the help of the LMT app by noname81 it’s there to replace the navigation bar found in Nexus or other devices. It can also be used for shortcuts to apps you would only like to appear when you press on a certain point on your device. I think the Pie is great, you can have a full screen setup with no buttons whatsoever, just hide your navbar Bring it back up with the Pie. It can be adjusted to show up anywhere you want; for example along the right or left side or in the center of your screen. You can also adjust the width of the field, that is good when you only want your pie to appear from let’s say pressing on the right side of the statusbar up until 200 pixels down. Anyway, it can be adjusted in many ways. You need to be rooted to have this app though.
A lot of people get confused when they’re trying to change the colors of the LMT Pie. One common issue that tend to happen is, when you enter the color code of the desired color you want, you do get the color, but you have white borders around each tab, which, most people don’t want. The description can be quite confusing to some – It was to me too. But once I read it through, I figured it out. It can be especially tricky to people that are new to LMT. Just follow (and understand) the steps below and you’re good to go – it’s very easy.
1. Open up the LMT app
2. Go to the Settings tab.
3. Go to Pie Colors and tap it
At first this might seem overwhelming, but stick to this tutorial.
Colors & Opacity
You can either choose the colors using the sliders up top and then tap Click to add color or you can type in your own colors’ code for example #43a2c4. If you want to add an opacity level (Transparency) to your color, you have to add two digits right after your color code. If you for example want you pie to be 50% transparent it would look something like this #43a2c480, as you can see, the number 80 was added on at the back for 50% opacity. The transparency levels can be seen down below with their codes.
FF 100% E6 90% CC 80% B3 70% 99 60% 80 50% 66 40% 80 30% 33 20% 1A 10% 0 0%
#ARGB & Arrangement
#ARGB is the color code you enter for each of the color options for the pie available. You need to replace #ARGB with your color code. As for arranging them, it is very important that you arrange them according to the order below, otherwise it won’t work. If you want to let’s say change only the color of the clock, you cannot simply put the clock’s color into that field since it will think that you want to change the color of the Pie Overall Color.
#ARGB – Pie overall color
#ARGB – Selection color
#ARGB – Pie Icons color
#ARGB – Clock color
#ARGB – Notifications color
#ARGB – outline (border) color
To change the color of the clock, you have to change the color of the elements above the clock as well. Everything in the text line should look like this:
#ARBG (Pie Color), #ARBG (Selection Color), #ARBG (Icons Color), #ARBG (Clock Color), #ARBG (Notifications Color), #ARBG (outline color).
All you gotta do now is, replace the #ARGB with your own color value, let’s take the color value #43a2c4 from above again for this example:
#43a2c4 (Pie Color), #43a2c4 (Selection Color), #43a2c4 (Icons Color), #43a2c4 (Clock Color), #43a2c4 (Notifications Color), #43a2c4 (outline color).
Oh yeah, don’t put the brackets + description in the text field, it’s just to show you what colors it changes. It should look like this for you:
#43a2c4, #43a2c4, #43a2c4, #43a2c4, #43a2c4, #43a2c4
Basically now the whole pie is blue, even the icons – which is pretty pointless. So just change the colors to what you want.
Very simple, right?
