- ASB May 2019 patches (sec. string 2019-05-05)
- System Webview M74
- Fixed video recording
- WiFi: Use hardware MAC address
- Bluetooth: Use hardware MAC address
- Fixed swype functionality when using AOSP keyboard

You know I just read that android q is intentionally forcing random Mac address on each connection, as a method to stop IP tracking. So soon you may just revert this fix.

Lol

For the latest 5/26/2019 release, though it does not say it fixed it explicitly, the location services still don't work (ford 2015 fire 7). Just for a data point :) I tested with just the ROM + open gapps.

    I followed the guide for WebView replacement on Bromite site:

    I used the arm.apk for Lollipop and above (SDK21),

    go to the webview directory in /system/app/webview (if you do not have such directory, this procedure will not work)
    cut the webview.apk file and store it on your SD card for backup purposes
    copy the Bromite SystemWebview apk there and rename it as webview.apk
    make sure the permissions of webview.apk are 0644 (should be by default)
    reboot phone
    install the Bromite SystemWebview apk file as you would for any other app

    I almost had it, but then no.

    My goal is to have this nexus rom, rooted, and still use my tv-provider streaming app work. This was possible on "revampted, but battery life on nexus is almost 3x as long

    issues ;
    -app needs location
    think i have if spoofed now. Installed "fake-gps" fom playstore and set a location.
    then used smalli-patcher , to patch framework as a magisk module. Now the fake gps location is treated as real location, and gets loaded into fused-location


    -app detects root
    With magiskhide and magisk reset props this was fixed. Root was not detected and device thought it was a google nexus device, which gets certified device in play store.

    but now root got detected again when installed the module for location.


    Maybe if the patched framework was part of the original build and not a module it may work???

    Location services is one of the next things on my list. Going to see if I can get it working for next release.

    Just flash the newest build. No need to wipes. You don't lose anything.

    Did this with a wipe of the Davlik, and after flashing just this rom (and not the pico gapps), the play store has gone a bit mad. Looks like the google play services isn't installed on the device. Any suggestions on how to resolve before clearing out the device and starting again?

    Wipe system (only) then reflash rom + gapps package (pico/nano). When prompted wipe cache/dalvik before rebooting.

    Note: a more comprehensive set of initial wipes will be needed if updating from another rom (FireOS, Lineage, etc).

    Thanks, this didn't work. Not sure if it is because I am using a Family account on the device (kid under 13 account). Rebuild it is.

    Family account? Sounds like you're coming from a different rom (ie: not Fire Nexus). If accurate a full wipe (rebuild) is required.

    As in a Google Family Account... It was this ROM. I've got two fire 7s that the kids use and they have google accounts that have been created using google family. I fixed one, I just rebooted to recovery and flashed gapps, and now it all works again. The other which I cleared the system memory as per the instructions is borked, so I am going to flash it from clean.

    Ah, yes. In that case I don't believe there is any connection to family account status. As for why the devices behaved differently during the update process is likely rooted in previously undetected differences in base configuration. Or serendipity. :)

      Information + Features
      - Pure AOSP Experience
      - Also ideal for customisation through Xposed

      - EVEN MORE IMPORTANT: As of January 2019 this ROM only works on devices using the bootloader hack. See <<< HERE >>> to unlock your devices.

      - IMPORTANT: Do not update Magisk via the Magisk Manager App, your device will enter a bootloop if you do. Instead update Magisk via TWRP only. If you do this by accident then it is recoverable by just flashing the latest version of the ROM again (with gapps etc as required).

      Rules
      - Please search the thread before asking questions
      - Please try to stay on topic, I know it's not always possible

      Progress for Next version

      - I'm working on an update which should fix up the previous borked release.
      - This ROM relies on gapps been included to work correctly so will not be releasing without it
      - I've fixed a bug in one of the last security updates I back-ported. Google services using the latest gapps now seems stable.
      - I wanted to check over a few more things and do some testing before release.
      - Hopefully should be done within the next couple of days.
