    Since Oxygen OS 4.0 many users have found the option of changing SIM card accent color missing in settings. After days of research, I finally found a way to do it without root.

    First off, you need to download an app that allows you to launch activities. I'm using Activity Launcher, which could be found in Play Store.

    Launch activity launcher, click the menu on the upper left side and select "All activities". Scroll the menu and look for "com.qualcomm.qti.simsettings". Expand it and click the last "SIM cards" in the sub-menu (com.qualcomm.qti.simsettings.SimSettingsActivity).

    After launching that activity, you'll see the option to change SIM accent color as shown in the screenshot below (click on the SIM card text next to the toggle to open this menu):

    And that's it. Btw I really hope OnePlus could bring this option back to the settings app.

    I'm on Open Beta 6. Do you mean that you can't find this activity?

    If you're using Nova launcher you can use the "activities" widget.

    just one of the many questionable things Oneplus has done, but I'm glad you found it, kudos indeed

    Quite a lot. You can discover some hidden menus or settings via Activity Launcher.
