    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...

    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.

    Yeah, RC5 here. Minimum volume using internal speakers is fine, I agree. Might be my headphones are pretty loud due to their low impedance. Anyway, although reducing the minimum value to -9600, I cannot find any difference in volume. Do you think the mentioned config file is the right approach?
