How to get transparent theme on Android 8 to 13 custom roms

There are many electronic devices other then PCs aka computer which install and loads operating system out of them most popular one is keypad mobile phones after that we got smartphones when Apple inc's founder steve jobs released iPhone which has GUI - graphial user interface operating system named iOS from iPhone 2 that may
look basic considering now but back then it's cool and gorgeous which gone through alot of improvement and changes to make it's interface look and feel better for user friendly experience on the go.

But, iOS is closed source so third party developers can't customize it directly or indirectly as it don't support due to that people has no choice other then to utilise same pre-defined user interface at that time search engine giant Google released an operating system named Android then released it's source code for free on AOSP aka Android open source project that any one can use to build thier own version of Android with different custom features, options, themes, skins, tweaks etc.

Fortunately, Android is known for free ecosystem known for customization more then security which is why many mobile companies and third party developers who are unable to use closed source iOS begin building thier own variant of Android with optimizations in different aspects which are known as custom roms like Xiaomi's MIUI, FIUI, LineageOS, HiOS, Omni etc.

Thankfully, custom roms comes with support of thousands of themes which you can choose or even make one your self to get user interface that you like isn't? amazing? but in case of stock Android aka pure AOSP roms available on Google's Pixel or LineageOS available with extra added features you will not get custom themes support, isn't disappointing?

However, Google back in year 2016 at the time of Android 6.0 marshmellow provided facility to custom overlays due to that few developers created many custom theming engines to customize user interface over lays of Android out of them Substratum is most popular theming engine which has thousands of awesome overlays build by third party developers around the world.

Substratum magically change boring light or dark mode system user interface into several dazzling designs using third party custom over lays available in format of apps but in order to do that your Android device must be rooted else it won't work including that it voids device warranty.

Even though, many people especially geeks risk thier device warranty to install substratum theming engine and try custom overlays but right now they only work on old Android operating systems starting from 6.0 M to 10 Q as Google for whatever reasons preventing stock users in installing custom overlays which may be new Android versions like 12 and 13 don't yet have compatibility with Substratum.

Generally, each person have his own user interface choice which is why hundreds of custom overlay came in to effect to apply on theming engines like Substratum out of them have you ever tried transparent one? that remove visible colors of user interface to show background of every options and tiles it will look fabulous right?

There are large percentage of people who like and use transparent Substratum themes but unfortunately they are right now only available on old Android versions due to that new Android 11 to 13 version  users has no choice other then to use stock or any different substratum themes which are not fully compatible now.

Anyhow, recently we found an transparent theme module named ClearLineage developed by @programminghoch10 that uses RRO aka resource runtime overlays for Android 8.0 to Android 12 custom roms including that it even support Google Pixel 1 to 5 and ProtonAOSP who was also working to bring transparent theme support for Android 13 soon but in order to install it you must be rooted via Magisk or Lygisk then install LSposed a module repository custom version of Xposed framework.

If you already have Magisk or Lygisk with LSposed installed on your Android powered smartphones then it's super easy to make your device user interface transparent in few seconds using ClearLineage Magisk and LSposed module but haven't you bit confused with it's name derived from popular custom roms that was previously known as CyanogenMod?

ClearLineage module is undoubtedly named after LineageOS may be because now a days majority of custom roms use  LineageOS as base so don't worry it will on almost all custom roms but can't guarantee though if you faced any kind of problem like unable to install or disable ClearLineage then you can simply contact support group of ClearLineage for sure.
