Hi,

Just wanted to let you guys know how I got the Smartthings app to work on my S20 FE (Also my older Samsung devices)
Some of the debloat guides/scripts remove either 1 or 2 packages required for Smartthings to work on Samsung devices.
The packages are:
com.samsung.android.easysetup
com.samsung.android.beaconmanager
Without these two I couldn't set up Smartthings and it would force close randomly.

You can install the packages with adb (as long as they still exist on the device):
adb shell
$ cmd package install-existing com.samsung.android.easysetup
$ cmd package install-existing com.samsung.android.beaconmanager

An alternative is to change build.props and change the ro.product.brand to Google or something other than Samsung. I have not tried this.
