Should the Aurora app store have all the free apps that are on the Google play store? Because I can't seem to find my banking app (which are free on the play store)

When I click the link that's supposed to lead me to the play store it just says 'no such app found'. Any way to force it to open on aurora?
Any missing permissions for aurora in app settings? You switched installation method to aurora services in aurora-settings (new since Calyx 2.5 build)?

Most banking apps rely on Google Play Services. Since this Rom does not have it, it probably won't work anyway. Only solution if you want this Rom, is to login from a browser.

Actually it worked perfectly after installing the apk. Doesn't matter though, the ROM lacks customizability so back to LineageOS

I currently have Calyx installed with MicroG and is working well. I am toying with the idea of moving to Graphene so to test the apps I have are compatible. If I disable/remove the apps relating to MicroG, I need to know which ones to do. I'll probably disable them 1st and run for a week and then remove altogether and then move over to Graphene if it works.

Is Calyx not secure enough? Just curious....

I have to say....Calyx is probably the best for me..;as far as security and usability balance.

One question I have though....Calyx and Graphene use "AVB Keys". I'm guessing that really increases security???
Correct, it's all about encryption for the best security. You could remove the keys by editing the flash-all.bat file but I woudn't recommend doing that.

flashing works without any issues but after its finished i still get the stock rom after the restart, any solutions?
That can't be. This is a like stock rom without the Google goodies. If you flash this, it would not boot stock firmware, you would be stuck at boot animation without a factory reset, but flashing this does a factory reset automatically unless you edit out the -w in the flash-all.bat file. In this case, it wouldn't boot at all.

I installed CalyxOS on my 4a yesterday afternoon and all I can say is "Two thumbs up".

Only issue I have had so far is Signal telling me it can't find google services and the pop-up about establishing a connection (I don't remember the exact wording). I reinstalled Signal and haven't had the pop-up in awhile. Not a deal breaker by any means. I think I have this fixed now.

I'm on Visible Mobile and have had no issues with data, SMS, or calls.

I haven't flashed a phone in 7 or 8 years... The CalyxOS install was simple as pie.
How did you fix the issue? Right now I am in a similar situation where everything works, but the only thing that isn't working is my data, where there should be an LTE on the top left of my screen is replaced by nothing at all.
