This module is my personal time-killer.

(Used to)



MODULE IS NO LONGER UPDATED IN THIS THREAD, USE REPO INSTEAD!



Does it have any flaws?
Definitely. It's aimed only at downloading and installing of vendor apps. Everything besides feature-names and library-names is stripped.
Does not modify the build.prop or anything other than /system/etc/permissions/.
This means that some apps may still not want to be installed, downloaded or launched properly.

What vendors are supported? (Some only partially)
HTC, OnePlus, Essential, Asus, Nokia/HMD Global, Google (lens, dialer, launcher, Daydream, maybe something else), Motorola, BlackBerry, Nextbit, BQ, Sony, Samsung, Cyanogen, Razer, NVIDIA, Acer.

Any FAQ?
After reboot, wait. Or not. Play Store often isn't too hasty in terms of compatibility detection. If you want to be quicker and don't want to say something about not working module, reset Play Store and Play Store Services data + reboot again. And if you are somehow on Marshmallow, you may even need to wipe the whole data.

Do I have any wish? Definitely!
First. Please don't post it on the main page of xda. We don't want it to be patched.
Second. Be cooperative. If you have a problem (other than app crashing) or suggestion, feel free to post it. I'd gladly look into logs of failed app installations or your packed /etc/permissions/ & /etc/sysconfig/ folders from your exotic device, if it has an access to some exclusive apps.
If you want some help, got some feedback or just want to be up to date: you may join here – https://t.me/joinchat/FyoBiEnx3VoMCr7yVCxELQ

Do I like some specific apps?
Yup. Xperia Weather, Xperia Launcher are one of the best vendor apps of their type.

It needs more than library-name/feature-name. System modding is needed or porting, so I won't do that :/ I may provide downloadibility, but won't make it not crashing.
