Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

OSMTRACKER has a neat feature where you can reconfigure the "button" layout to support your own logging goals. I was able to easily write the .xml defining the "buttons" I want but could not follow the instructions for installing the xml. Is there a where you can put the xml so that it can be downloaded to your phone and tested? I read the wiki https://github.com/labexp/osmtracker-android-layouts/wiki and got stuck at "Custom Layouts created by users will be uploaded to this repository or another Github repository that follow the instructions below."

Sample XML file : https://pastebin.com/yeHdz28E

Location in Android phone : create a folder called layouts in the same folder where the tracks are exported to. In my Android 11 phone, it is shown as Internal Storage/osmtracker/layouts

I was trying to get the custom buttons into my new phone and found this thread. I figured out the answer later. Next time I will find the answer here itself :)

I no longer have an Android phone and the new(er) versions may have changed what permissions are available so all this may be wrong. I recall putting my phone in developer mode then using my laptop and adb to push my custom buttons to a directory within the OSMTracker's storage area. Sorry, I don't recall exactly which directory. I do remember that images for custom buttons went in to the same directory as the XML file.
