Hello Magisk community,
i put together a module which installs system-less the Google Dialer v2.3.12 with Magisk.

Tested and working on my Moto X Pure - XT1572 with Marshmallow 6.0.1, Magisk 10.2 and Magisk-Manager 3.0,
Should work on other stock Roms, etc. as framework and permission files a standard files.


Included files:
- com.google.android.dialer.support.jar (framework)
- com.google.android.dialer.support.xml (permission)
- GoogleDialer.apk (Google Dialer)

Do not forget to set the Google Dialer as default app in Configuration - Applications

Notes:
I used version 2.3.1.2 as it is to my knowledge the latest version which works flawless with
- Caller ID
- Places Nearby
- Call blocking
- TeslaUnread from Nova Launcher
- No FC when entering configuration

All later versions, specifically those with the new design v5.+ have problems with Nearby and Tesla Unread on Marshmallow (Google-Dialer will not be recognized by TeslaUnread as default dialer).
Anyway you can update the dialer by downloading the apk from "http://www.apkmirror.com/".
Latest limited working version is 5.1.13122 (Nearby and Tesla not working)

If somebody finds a later version working with all above features, let me know and i will update the Module.

Also i did not include "Google Contacts" as it can be installed as a user app with no problems.

Wishes and suggestions welcome.
Have fun.

I installed this on a stock Xperia Z5 (E6653) and it installs properly and I can open the Google Dialer. The issue I'm having is that I can't enable permissions for the Google Dialer because it tells me I need to disable overlays for the app. When I go into settings to try to disable it, the Google Dialer does not show up, so I can't enable/disable overlays. Calling doesn't seem to work either, I think again because I can't change permissions.

I was able to update the app through the Play Store though, so at least I know that works. Maybe it's an issue with Sony firmware. Maybe you could post a zip that doesn't include the apk and I can try installing it as a user app and see if it works that way?

The apk you can extract from the zip file. If you want only to install the framework and permission file with Magisk delete the priv-app folder under /system in the zip file. That's it.

It works.

I deleted the folder from /Magisk/GoogleDialer/system/priv-app, enabled the module, rebooted, and installed that the same version of the Google Dialer from apkmirror.com. The dialer works, enabling permissions works, and updating through the Play Store works.

I'm not sure if it's the intent of this module, but it might make more sense to have the Google Dialer installed as a user app rather than a system app, because it seems that it might work universally. It would be interesting to get some feedback from other users to see if they have the same issues I did or if I'm the only one. Either way, this is working great, thanks for your help.

You can do so as you have done. But your way does not work on several other Roms. In my case i couldn't even install the apk as user file. Any way glad it works.
I also updated via Playstore, but the updated version was not recognized by Tesla - Unread, neither Nearby works.

It can be downloaded on ApkMirror.

Dialer v5.1.1 is the latest version that works in devices not running 7.1+. (Therefore 7.0 Nougat and below work with Dialer v5.1.x).

That is correct, but Nearby, Caller ID and TeslaUnread does not recognize this version as default dialer as far as i know.

What Rom are you running, installed as user app, with or without the framework. And Tesla unread works?

Hm, what Rom are you running. Installed as user app, with or without framework and permission file? Tesla unread recognizes the dialer as default dialer?
I have 5.1.13122 and the above three features don't work.
