Hi dears,
I don't how many... but as soon launched, I placed my order for the 128GB version.

It is: http://www.royole.com/flexpai


Now... as soon payed, I didn't get any update and I raised up the case to PayPal as well.


Despite my path, I hope for you a better feedback, what's your opinion about?



Cheers.,

But I don't think the phone will be good even in youtube android authority posted a video in which they showed the phones look good in folded condition but in straight it looks ugly.

Personally I don't care about aesthetic! Functionality is my only way and it's something revolutionary!!

Mine was OK, the SIM card holder tip broke off but can still insert a SIM card. I have tried many different things. I used the Chinese app to download something called "Go" when I open the app, I see Royole and references to Play store. I still cannot get it to work. I tried to create a Royole account (no luck still).

I use my Huawei phone to convert the Chinese to English (camera/hivision). They have FAQs in the app, and it implies I needed to disable two factor authentication but it doesn't work still.

I hooked up the FlexPai to ADB/Logcat to see the debug messages and I see security exceptions. So I fear we may need to root (and this is outside of my expertise).

I use the web versions of google apps as a temp workaround (outlook for email). Some apps work some apps don't.

Looking forward to your blog!

Hi, Ive got some google functuonality installed on my flexpai (google maps is ok, playstore working but no possibility to sign in)
I am looking to install the google account apk for pie. You should have to install manually some google apk and for pie!!!

com.google.android.gms_17.1.91_(100400-247666647)-17191037_minAPI28(arm64-v8a,armeabi-v7a)(nodpi)_apkmirror.com.apk

Hi looks promising.

In your list of 3 apks two of them are actually the same "app" just different versions
com.google.android.gms is the same as Google Play Services.

You need this one

com.google.android.gsf_9-4832352-28_minAPI28(nodpi)_apkmirror.com.apk

plus this version of Google maps

com.google.android.apps.maps_10.16.1-1016101040_minAPI21(arm64-v8a,armeabi-v7a,x86,x86_64)(nodpi)_apkmirror.com.apk

AND IT WORKS!!! great work.

I can't log in but maps works otherwise.
maybe we need to latest google account manager - looking into it.

thanks

I found an account manager for Android Pie but no luck.

I look at logs in ADB - and it seems there are permissions that are not granted
nable to get provider com.google.android.gsf.settings.GoogleSettingsProv ider: java.lang.SecurityException: You need MANAGE_USERS permission to: get the profile parent

I tried to grant using ADB shell but cannot.

So in an area I don't have expertise on.

I see we can unlock our bootloader so potential for other ROMs and root to address these issues

Quick update,

Just installing this one APK
com.google.android.gms_17.1.91_(100400-247666647)-17191037_minAPI28(arm64-v8a,armeabi-v7a)(nodpi)_apkmirror.com.apk

then issue these two command from adb:
adb shell pm grant com.google.android.gms android.permission.INTERACT_ACROSS_USERS
adb shell pm grant com.google.android.gms android.permission.READ_LOGS

helps a lot.

Apps like flipboard, sirius etc now work (when they didn't before).

Apps not working for me still: pushover, textnow and the google apps (where I need to login).

thanks
Adrian
