Patch for rounded corners and camera notch on OnePlus6/6T
There is a thread about fixing the round corners and camera notch blocking the time and icons on the top bar of the Volla phone. That thread links to this patch which also has patches for other phones including the OnePlus6/6T.
The patch at the time of writing this does the following:
- Increase side margins of the panel to push the icons/clock inside the round corners.
- Increases the height of the panel to match the notch making the camera blend in.
- Shifts the panel below the camera notch for visibility when pulling down the panel.
The repo includes before and after pictures and instructions.
When I tried to apply the patch it did not work because it did not correctly detect the phone. It turns out you can just pass the device name to the script and then it works.
So where it says
for example with a 6T you would use
The device name needs to match the case and spelling of the .diff file in the patches folder

I don't own a 6T, however it's a good news for owners.
Something i noticed though, with patch, the messaging icon disapears behind the notch, could you make a "blank" zone behind the notch for no icon to be unvisible?
Or maybe you could switch places of this icon with another (on the right or the left) less important?
I assume owners would like to always see this one ^^

@keneda There is an easy way to make the notification icon reappear: Enable the automatic location. This will cause the notification envelope to appear to the left of the notch... (location icon will be hided behind the notch).
@keneda You are totally correct that it does hide at least one icon but that is still better then before.
In the original thread they talk about different solutions and this was just a simple hack changing the margins. I think there are people working on an actual fix for this that would skip the middle area. The panel is created dynamically from the right with a percent applied to each icons location. So you can not simply assign a blank icon behind it since it moves as you turn things on and off like bluetooth, wifi, cellular data.... The hack solution is to either assign the icons you want visible to be on the right at the beginning or just pull it down a tiny bit and it becomes entirely visible.

Not everyone using uTouch for privacy will consent enabling GPS just for an icon... I wouldn't.
I saw a similar topic for VollaPhone, and i'm quite sure an icon switching "hack" was given there.

@stanwood @Keneda I noticed that my Envelope is only just a tiny bit covered by the camera notch and that is because I always turn on show percentage on panel in the UT tweak tool. My hidden icons are sound and network. If it had a sim card and cellular data turned on it would hide the cellular data icon a little and the envelope would be fully visible.
EDIT: I should also note that I use AM/PM not 24hr for my clock which also pushes the envelope further to the left.
