How to install Substratum themes on Android 8 Oreo mobiles without being root

Currently, the Substratum app stands out for offering us many alternatives to customize our mobile, especially if you have a custom ROM. However, in this new post we will teach you what you should do to install Substratum themes on Android 8 Oreo mobiles without being root.

Another important detail before starting is that these steps do not work with all mobile models, however we recommend that you try to see if you are lucky and your device is compatible.

Steps to install Substratum themes on Android 8 Oreo mobiles without being root

In this first section we will show you all the steps you must follow to install Substratum themes on Android 8 Oreo mobiles without being root. The process can be a bit tedious at first, so we recommend that you follow all the steps to the letter so that you can complete everything in a short time and easily.

  • To begin you must update the Google Play Store to its latest version , and then download two applications: Substratum and Andromeda. The latter provides us with all the permissions that we will need to install the themes without having to be a root user, but the only bad news is that you have to pay to download the application.
  • After purchasing the Andromeda app from the Google Play Store, you should test it to make sure it works. We also remind you that you can return the app without having to pay its cost, as long as it does not take more than two hours after downloading it. In other words, if you do this, they will refund the money you paid to download the app.

  • Now, you must download the PC version of these applications from the internet.
  • So, for Windows versions you must unzip the ZIP file and connect the smartphone to the PC using a USB cable. In addition, we remind you that you must have the Andromeda application open on your mobile and then you can run the executable file that was in the compressed folder.
  • On the contrary, if you have a Mac then you have to mount the DMG file as a single unit, then connect the mobile to the PC and then you have to run the app. In this case, you must search for the image using the file explorer.
  • On the other hand, if you prefer to use Linux, you must unzip the folder, connect the Android mobile to the computer, remembering to have the app open before. Finally, proceed to open a terminal and execute the following command “./start_andromeda.sh” in the directory where you had opened the ZIP file.
  • How do we know when we can access Substratum? Well, it is very simple, since you will see that the Andromeda app turns green, which guarantees us access to the Substratum application.
  • Finally, you only have to download and install all the themes you want from Substratum to customize your Android 8 Oreo device as you prefer and without having to be a root user. In fact, it is also possible to download such topics from some forums on the internet or from Google+.

Guide to learn how to use the Substratum application

Previously in the section above we showed you what you should do to activate the Substratum app and thus install its themes without having to be a root user. However, the interesting thing about this app comes when it is already installed. This is because you can start applying the themes that come in the app store.

To do this, simply download the themes, and then you can apply them as you prefer, which gives us a lot of freedom when it comes to personalizing our mobile.

In case you don’t know, the Substratum app works in layers. For this reason it will not be necessary to apply the theme completely if you just want to get some colors or buttons to improve menu navigation. However, we recommend that you select the layers you want to use and then press the ‘Compile and activate’ option.
