It was digged out that NLP issue is due to newly introduced configurations for Qualcomm proprietary codes affecting at least beryllium and polaris. Here is a report upstream. Do you know how to inform the maintainers of Xiaomi devices (and probably others) more efficiently?
No luck with typing https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D%C3%A9j%C3%A0_vu
It sounds like @Setialpha can build a patch for that issue in nanodroid. Or he has already? Can you flash nanodroid and test?
After googling, it seems to me that introducing Qualcomm Location poses a significant risk to privacy since it will implicitly collect user data, including geolocation, tower, WiFi and IP address. It is very difficult for me to understand the official position of Lineage OS Team on this. Therefore it is not only a technical issue, much more serious.
I can tell you Lineage's official position on this subject. "We told you so! Now go install Google package as your supposed to and stop using that insecure microG project."
Lineage does not allow signature spoofing on official builds, that's why this is a separate project. Also, this project defaults to the Mozilla location backend,, if your wondering their position.....
This commit MUST be reverted!
It effectively destroys the free choice of NLP providers and imposes severe privacy issues by collecting mentioned data using a unique id. I do not understand, how this commit could ever be accepted. At least users should be asked and have the option to take part in this data dealing game...
Anyway, if one wants to compile from source by oneself, how this could be effectively reverted? (I'm not completedly new to this, have compiled Lineage for microg before, but without any changes and others systems like libreelec, openwrt ... too). But here, I'm confused.
In config.xml in .../frameworks/base/core/res/res/values both variables do have the right values. I suspect that the settings in overlay/frameworks/base/core/res/res/values overrule these.
So, how to change this behaviour? I even don't see any overlay/... in the Lineage source tree...
Could somebody please kindly explain or give a step by step, where to make the appropriate changes and then how to compile?
