Cannot force 120hz on Android 12

    Dfast , Jan 26, 2022 :
    While i got the phone, i found that when opening any google app(youtube, keyboard, etc.), the phone forced itself to render on 60hz, causing the phone to feel laggy
    i found a solution, using adb to force the phone to 120hz, everything went smooth, there were absolutely no problems with that at all
    since Android 12...
    the command "adb shell settings put global oneplus_screen_refresh_rate 0" when tried to be run, it shows an error
    also, there is ANOTHER that does the job, its called the jOnePlus Tools, it's doing the same job, but not trough a computer but locally, the app just needs to be given access via a computer
    but yeah... it shows strange error and cannot be installed at all

    Please help, i have searched throughout the internet and all i see are these two methods, who do NOT work :( any advice is welcome

    Progress: found the "Disable Permission Monitoring" setting in developer options. After enabling, the commands were ran successfully, but this changes nothing. adb shell settings put global oneplus_screen_refresh_rate 0 changes nothing, the one about the jOnePlus Tools work, but the application itself does not change anything. Maybe the new android's screen settings variable is elsewhere :(

    Seems like some specific root access has been explicitly restricted even in USB debugging mode in Android 12.

    with disable permission monitoring it's able to bypass it but the command about higher refresh does nothing, and the app does nothing :(

    stuck at the same point.
    I tried everything, is there any changes to the adb command that we need to apply? or maybe a different command to write?
    (maybe because we need to write it slightly different when dealing with android 12 - at oneplus 7 pro with android 11 it worked perfectly)
