Thank you for your awesome app @M66B
Unfortunately I can't use the official ebay app, even if I allow everything through xprivacy lua app.
The app seems to check a Google play service permission.
Is there a way to fix this without giving play services full access.
Every other app is working flawlessly.

Oneplus 6T official rom
No firewall
Restricted some Google spyware through a script (maybe the root of the problem? But other users don't have this issue)

I don't use and don't want to use the eBay app, so I cannot help you with this.

I am planning to close this thread referencing to the main XPrivacyLua thread with the remark to contact me in another way about purchases. In practice the wrong thread is used often anyway.

Are there any objections to this?

Making one thread for XPL and XPL Pro is a good idea. Most people do not understand that there are two.

So it might be right decision ...

You're the OP, and you best know what you're doing. Your observation is certainly correct as well as your conclusions and decisions. It's a pity that quite a few people are unable (for whatever reasons) to differentiate between the two things. Do you intent to leave "[APP][XPOSED][6.0+] Use Xposed without developing a module" open regarding the custom hook definitions, or will it be closed, too? In latter case, you might want to consider to migrate its OP into the XPL OP.
Thanks very much for all you work for the benefit of the XDA community and our all privacy; this includes all your projects. As XPL doesn't have top priority (to what I fully agree), a comprehensive approach with just one (or two) threads is certainly the best.

    XPrivacyLua Pro companion app

    This thread is to discuss about the pro companion app of XPrivacyLua.

    You can install the pro companion app for free and manage hook definitions and access the hook definition repository for free. You can see how the other features work, but using them requires a purchase:

    • backup and restore all settings
    • manage individual hooks per app
    • set/randomize custom identifiers globally/per app
    • allow (non) starred contacts globally/per app
    • set custom fake or coarse location globally/per app
    • view a global log of which restriction were applied and when
    • notify on applying an app restriction
    • dark theme

    Although the pro companion app is stable, it will be forever published in the Play store as "testing" because I don't want to deal with unfair ratings/comments. Just too many people have unreasonable expectations.

    If you value your privacy, please consider to support this project by purchasing pro features or with a donation.

    If you want to install the pro companion app and activate the pro features without Google services, please contact me through this contact form: https://contact.faircode.eu (select "XPrivacyLua standalone").

    The pro companion app is supported with Xposed only.

    Christ dude $15 for pro features???!!

    And you even got the admins to delete the fork that enables the pro features for free. **** move.
    XPrivacyLua is completely free to use, so you can protect your privacy for free. Given the time I have put into it, this is a big gift. The pro companion app offers convenience and advanced features and is not free to use.

    You clearly experience the price too high, but in fact it is much too low because it will never ever pay for the hours I have put into this project.

    Most apps are free, but in fact you are paying in some other, likely privacy invading way. Most paid apps are cheap and they can be due to the high number of users. XPrivacyLua has maybe 3000 users and just a few percent actually support the project. I have put about 450 hour into this project. Go figure.

    So, if you value your privacy, please support this project instead of trying to use the pro companion app for free.

    Edit: there has never been a fork or whatever, so you have been using either cracking tools or a cracked version of the pro companion app. Crackers do not work for free because that is simply not how the world works most of the time. Mostly they earn their money by inserting malicious code. So, you are not only using illegal stuff, but also taking a big risk. Don't be surprised if something was stolen from you.

    You were very vocally against the pro features despite the community feedback and only enabled it as a means to kill the community fork. So yes you released it but locked it behind a prohibitively expensive price as a way of getting back at people. For $15 it might as well not exist. But tbh I think it's more of an ego issue than a money issue. And it's obviously apparent from how you took an amazing app and neutered it because you want to police how others want to use their devices. Yes this is your personal project and you can do whatever the hell you want with it but it just seems so counter productive.
    Which community fork are you talking about?

    Edit: all source code is here: https://github.com/M66B/XPrivacyLua, but it doesn't contain the pro companion app because I don't want it to be used free.

    And yes, I was against pro features and still I built them and put a price on them, which go together. So, be happy that there are pro features available and not only XPrivacyLua. It is not 'a way of getting back at people', that lives only in your mind.

    I provided XPrivacyLua for free and open sourced it. How is that an ego issue?

    I am not policing how you use your device. That is absolute nonsense.

    You obviously want to use the pro companion app for free. Can you please explain me why?

    Basically you come here to complain that your cracked version doesn't work anymore. You should be banned for that.

    I think it is pretty disrespectful to steal somebody else's work.

    A ton of apps do this. XPL is literally useless if you can't or don't want to pay $15. Your privacy ends when your inability to pay begins.

    And to those preaching this as the holy grail as privacy: don't even pretend, you know some apps outright crashes when restrictions are applied.

    I'm usually okay with these semi functional freemium apps since they cost a few bucks at most to unlock but $15 is too greedy out of principle alone, especially if he's making this for the, lol, "betterment of humanity". You'd think with a mission that great the not-so-optional features would be more accessible.

    Watch him interpret this as wanting things for free because in his mind less money apparently equals no money. Probably sprinkled with some threats of leaving because he thinks he's rovo89 or something.
    If $15 is worth the pro features and to support the XPrivacyLua project is up to you, but it is clear to me that you don't want to pay anything or almost nothing. That is fine, but then you should not have access to the pro features.

    XPrivacyLua generally doesn't let apps crash, although this can't be prevented completely. See also the FAQ.

    Nobody preaches that XPrivacyLua is the holy grail of privacy, but it is the most complete privacy tool for Android there is.

    Anyway, go find another completely free privacy tool that is maintained and supported and just go away here.
