Have you tried the latest AA version? I think it should work with Android 8. Adb installation works for me for the latest AA version and Android 10.
If you say that "The app works fine" with AA, then you can watch video.A quick question... just to confirm...
I have installed the latest version of the app. My phone is a Redmi Note 9 running MIUI 12.0.8 (Android 10) and AA 6.5.612134. The app works fine.
The bootloader is locked and the there's no root access.
I just want to confirm that I WILL NOT be able to watch any movies I have on the phone using AA and Fermata. That is only possible if the phone is rooted, right?
