Hi @oasisfeng

I am a Greenify Donation Package user and I am planning to install Island, the only purpose being to Freeze system apps that are waking up very very often (like Google Play Store, Google Play Music, YouTube, Google Maps, etc).

So, if my understanding is correct, I believe I should be good to go good as long as I am able to use only the God mode.

However, when I open Island, the app says:
"Sorry, the required "Multi-User" feature is not supported on this device"

In addition, since my device is a custom Android 5.0.2, it does not come encrypted either.

So, my only workaround seems to be to setup Island manually.

Question 1:
Since my only requirement is to freeze apps, is it possible for me to setup and use only the God mode? (without needing to setup the normal mode later).
If your answer is No, which one should I proceed to setup first, God mode or Normal mode? Should I still proceed with setting up the God mode first? (given my device's limitations as mentioned above)

Also, to quote two of your posts,

Question 2:
In my Android 5.0.2, in the system Settings app, I don't have an option called Users. I only have an option called Accounts, which has accounts like Google, etc.,. listed inside of it. Since my device does NOT list a Guest User like you have pointed out above, should I remove all accounts, including my primary Google account, before I proceed to manually setup God mode?
I see that you have mentioned to remove only users (and not accounts), but I am wondering if I should instead remove all accounts as my device is not listing any USERS.

1. Yes, you can just set up Island in God mode only, and create the separate Island space any time later.
2. You need to remove both all accounts and all users before setting up God mode if your device is not rooted. Some device models may have Users section positioned elsewhere, you need to find that in the system Settings. (or it's nowhere if your device does not support multi-users at all)

Okay. For now, my requirement is only to freeze system apps using Greenify's Deep Hibernation option . Is it a must to create the separate island space (later) for God mode to work? Meaning, can I use God mode alone, without ever setting up the normal mode (even later)?

Okay. My device does not have the Users section anywhere under System Settings. It is non-rooted and is also not encrypted. Also, when I open Island as of now, it says:
"Sorry, the required Multi-User feature is not supported on this device"
So, it looks like my device does not support multi-users at all. So, this would mean I could proceed setting up the God mode after removing all accounts. Correct?

If you're using Magisk, you should enable multi user support in settings and come Magisk manager to island.
As is explained in the post right above yours.

I have cloned Google photos to island with the intention that it would only see the photos in the island workspace, but it sees all media and device folders.

Is there any way to lock it to the island workspace?
