Daydream runs pretty nice on my n6p. sucks to sideload all apps also not all apps can be found on google. so i wanted play store to recognize my device as "daydream ready" and let me download all daydream apps. a little googleing later i found 2 reddits explaining what to do and saying "it works" in the comments.
https://www.reddit.com/r/oneplus/com...us33t/dbmy2it/ creating 2 new files in /system/etc/permissions/
https://www.reddit.com/r/Android/com...work_on_other/ put the 2 feature tags in handheld_core_hardware.xml
none of those worked. i could start sideloaded daydream apps before this. updating/downloading from play store is my issue.
things i didnt try yet:
- a clean flash of the rom then change the permission files in twrp adb then reboot.
- putting the feature tags in 2 seperate files AND in handheld_core_hardware.xml
- https://android.googlesource.com/pla...erformance.xml has the <feature name="android.software.vr.mode" /> and the high performance mode tag in it. didnt try that 2 tags in one file way yet.
anybody got this to work yet? if so pls share
EDIT: i made a magisk v10 module changing the build.prop. if anyone wants to do it this way feel free to dl the attached module.zip. just downloaded some previously "incompatible" apps. idk what happens if u install it on a device that is not daydream-compatible. n6p is the dev device so it is compat but not daydream-ready. as every dev i take no responsibility for anything. u flash this at ur own risk. that it requires magisk to be installed and working is self-explainatory. just ignore the "wrong vendor.img" warning that pops up on booting.
UPDATE: magisk module disabling bug fixed since some versions ago.
V1.1 : quick and dirty commented out out manufacuturer line and zipped it again. still v10/11 magisk template but it works. just tested. template didnt change much anyway to v12 i think.
