    Post [APP] microG GmsCore - lightweight free software clone of Google Play Services

    Since Android 6, a location provider has to be a priviledged app and thus, its apk has be be pushed to /system/priv-app. For any priveledged app on the other hand, any permission it requests has to be well defined in a xml file within /etc/permissions. Otherwise, the OS will stay in a boot loop...

    Create a new folder on your sd card via adb adb shell mkdir /storage/<sdcard>/test and give access permissions of that folder to anyone adb shell chmod 777 /storage/<sdcard>/test Then, on you phone, try to write into that folder.

    I don't kow about you guys but I prefer Lineage OS just because there is no Google stuff on it. I don't see the point in getting an Open Source operating system and then flushing it with closed source surveillance software. Since I use Open Source apps, only, I have no need of spoofing.

    Chromium / Saving downloads Using any browser like Bromite / Chromium, I cannot save files to internal storage, e.g. /storage/emulated/0/Downloads. Message in the save as dialogue says: No sdcard found. Although, in the same window, I can select the actual sdcard in /storage/XXXX-XXXX/Download...

    This is actually a IchnaeaNlpBackend situation, which means, just the Mozilla nlp should have issues. Try the updated build here https://github.com/microg/IchnaeaNlpBackend/issues/50

    Sorry, I don't see any missing steps. Have a look at your device's logcat via ADB. You'll see the log rotating again and again. Stop it with Ctrl-C and look for error messages. Edit: First hint Look for messages like PackageManager: Privileged permission android.permission.<PNAME> for...

    Instead of UnifiedNlp I used microG Service Core, which latest build is quite newer than the lastest build of UnifiedNlp. I also removed UnifiedNlp. microG Service Core seems to bring it's own build of UnifiedNlp, although I cannot see the latter as a separate package. I did not test signature...

    At the beginning, I did. Play Service queried my coarse and fine location 4600 times within 90 minutes. Now I don't have Gapps installed anymore.

    That doesn't seem normal. Over night my devices discharges by less than 5% when not in flight mode. Look for suspicious processes via top: $ adb root $ adb shell top

    Nothing else to do. But updating the firmware is mandatory.

    On network location Now after a week of testing, I am sure to say that my network location issues are gone since switching to microG and it's build of UnifiedNlp. Thereby, I get a network location fix instantly and as soon as I enabled the location switch. Here's what I currently use: *...

    Post [ROM] LineageOS 16.0 UNOFFICIAL - 1.2 [2020-02-11]

    Using LineageOS 16 1.0, I installed microG Services Core by copying the package to /system/priv-app/microg, added privapp-permissions-microg.xml (see previous post) and then, by accident, wiped my /data partition, so I had to set it up again. Annoying at first, but - location behaviour has...
