I'm currently trying to fix the same issue. There is support for Vodafone Volte on the pixel in the Netherlands so maybe I can load the Vodafone mbn and tweak the mbn with ims settings for KPN. WIP
I don't think magiskhide props chaging device values will work because the carrier files inside the mbn file is only accessible through QPST. And you showed that the device name etc was written inside ims_user_agent, which is inside the mbn file.
Sorry for asking a dumb question: Is that I must ROOT my Pixel 5 to enable 5G and VoLTE? I worry that the banking apps will cease to work one day when magisk hide doesn't work. I plan to use this phone for 3-4 years in fact.
Also, I am using eSIM now and *#*#4636#*#* just doesn't work for me. If I want to use 5G and VoLTE, is that I have to use a physical SIM?
Or, if I prefer not to root my Pixel 5, I can only wait and see if Google may change their policy? (not so optimistic...)
Well this zip file is supposed to solve this problem and provide us with a solution to enable at once all the missing services. Keep us posted!
For Vo LTE to work your SIM needs to be registered with your operator. What do you see when you dial *#*#4636#*#* ?
From the creator's repo:
I can confirm this to work with the Pixel 5 aswell. A bit of a hassle but IMS shows as registered when the phone is in NR/LTE mode. For some reason VoLTE does not register when phone is set to use also 3g and GSM. However, with VoLTE working, there's really no downside leaving the phone locked to LTE and NR as 4G coverage is very good in my country.I enabled volte on my 4a 5G. It should also work with Pixel5, I think.
omg another kiwi <3Late but this is the case. I have a Oneplus 8 IN2013 rooted with a different LTE profile via PDC. I have both 5G and VoLTE despite it not being supported by any of the carriers(Spark, Voda and Skinny).
I am too keen if anyone figures this out because I'd like to switch to a Pixel 5 and stay in the Android eco system and ditch my Oneplus 8 so I'll be keeping my eye on this.
You're not getting VoLTE or 5G due to a literal misconfiguration. A Spark rep have already said that it's not going to be supported in this Geekzone thread https://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=39&topicid=280371&page_no=1#2619750 (there's actually quite a bit about this).
I honestly hope someone figures it out or enough complaints/demand grows for Pixel phones to start being supported in NZ. I'm sick of NZ getting the short of the stick but I am now ranting at this point
The android 12 developer preview 3 is packed with more carrier settings. All carriers in the Netherlands have support and they updated the expired apn settings. I found a carrier policy containing a very detailed list for europe with 5G support.
I suspect they are included with the upcoming may patch. I didn't expect Google tot fix this, a very pleasent surprise!
