“Complete One UI Project” is a Substratum overlay pack to fix annoyances in Samsung’s Android Pie software
Samsung’s One UI brings together several refinements, as well as Android Pie, to the custom UX present on Samsung devices. As a successor to Touchwiz and Samsung Experience, One UI brought features like improved usage with one-hand, a system wide dark theme and more, most of which we largely appreciated in our review for the same. But despite best efforts, software experiences still have room to improve, especially considering the fact that experiences center around subjective opinion.
Complete One UI Project by XDA Senior Member osuki9x aims to improve the One UI experience on Samsung’s Android Pie devices. The set of mods achieves this by utilizing Substratum overlays to fix the UI by attuning it to the needs of more users, as well as incorporating dark theme UI elements where Samsung hasn’t used any, and providing an icon pack that follows along the One UI styling. You get features like improved one handed usage when in folder view, a bottom placed Search bar and bottom App Menu for Recents for better one handed usage, increasing the number of rows in quick settings and more.
Other features for the mod are as follows:
- Dark Package Installer
- Dark Samsung Note
- Dark lockscreen notifications
- Dark Recent Apps menu
- Night Mode for Theme Store and Galaxy Store
- Removing bottom black bar in keyboard when using Gesture Navigation
- Remove multisim panel
- Reposition Close All button in Recents to the bottom
- Reposition Smart Capture buttons to the bottom

To use this modification, the developer recommends that users install Substratum alongside Andromeda to make it easier to manage and uninstall mod overlays. The mod set can also be used without Substratum, but it gets difficult to manage, and hence, is not recommended.
