    you might have conflicted overlays. uninstall all overlays from overlay manager in substratum app. after that apply overlays again. your can use YouTube for reference

    You have to Uninstall all your overlays before updating the phone this is why your system ui stopped.
    You can reset only settings and apps to get back to your normal device without formatting your all data.

    i lost all my data last night due to substratum
    system ui crashed and substratum refused to open up app
    and was unable to recover my data through pc as i cant toggle settings from charging to file transfer

    Make sure you are selecting the right version of the OS.

    Also the most trusted are pitch black and Swift black themes.

    Substratum Themes require patience. One can't go on clicking all the options and apply.
    Proper and safe application of overlays should atleast take you 5-10mins. Correct app version, correct OS version, compatibility all need to be taken inaccount

    am using pitchblack as my main module, then only enable a few features in ozone like clock settings, aosp status icons, phone dialer. all working good. i have op5 official oreo by the way. make sure when you enable selected few features to activate "disable other theme" option.
