About this app

WARNING -- We do not guarantee that problems caused by the improper use of this utility can be fixed, and we are unable to help you with any such problems. We support only this app, not your device's system software. Settings Database Editor (SetEdit) is invaluable if you need it, but if you're not careful you're very likely to mess something up.

By default, for your protection, Android prevents you from modifying the SECURE and GLOBAL tables. If you have Android Jellybean or later, you can remove this protection from an ADB shell using the command "pm grant by4a.setedit22 android.permission.WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS". On earlier versions, you can only remove this protection on a rooted device by installing SetEdit to the system partition.

Android Q and later will ask you to "check for update". Please ignore this. We can't stop this warning without reducing SetEdit's functionality, and we will not do that.

The app works well. But lacking one thing it should have a search/filter option to look around the records I'll rate it 5 if the filter option is added. By the way kudos to the developers. Good Job 👌

Awesome. Now I can change settings that the devices' manufacturer decided to keep inaccessible for me for some obscure reason. For instance, the touchscreen haptic feedback (enable/disable) in my Galaxy A50. I just can't live without it. Pity it can't edit the Java table due to Android restrictions. Suggestion: add search for settings strings. God bless you!

This editor works great, with a very clear and intuitive interface. I am using it on a OnePlus 6 running Android 10 (Oxygen 10.3.0).. Despite a warning appearing on launch saying it may not work, it works fine for what I needed. I got this to fix the notch issue created with the new Android version. Worked like a charm.

The warning from Android is misleading. If we make the change Google wants us to make, it will actually reduce the number of settings that can be edited.

What's new

* Android Q and later will ask you to "check for update". Please ignore this. We can't stop this warning without reducing SetEdit's functionality, and we will not do that.
v2018.10.31:
* Added support for the SetEdit Community Translation Project
* Due to Google Play policy changes, for the foreseeable future, there will be no more updates to the main SetEdit app. All future updates will come in the form of addons, such as the Feature Pack and the Community Translation Project.
