Despite the fact that officially upgrade to Android 9 Pie can only smartphones Google Pixel and Essential Phone, owners of all other devices want an available way to get it. To do this, just install the updated Pixel Launcher assembly.
How to install Android 9 Pie
– Before uploading a file, you must allow installation of applications from unknown sources. To do this, go to “Settings” – “Security” – “Unknown sources” and activate this function.
– Now download the APX-file Pixel Launcher, which is located at this link. You can download the file directly from the smartphone, which you plan to “upgrade” to Android P. For this purpose we activated the function “Unknown sources.”
– After the installation is complete, in the window that opens, select Pixel Launcher to use by default, by clicking “Always use.”
– Because Pixel Launcher is not the default system application, you will need to grant it some privileges. To do this, go to “Settings” – “Applications” – Pixel Launcher – “Permissions” and open the bootloader access to calls, built-in storage, and geolocation services to determine your location.
