That just sounds great!
As @Xurde78 already reported (and I repeatet the test), the King installer doesn't seem to work (in terms of faking the installation source). I used one of the already released Magisk packages that works fine for Maps or VLC, but not for any other navigation app. Installing OSMAnd~ by KingInstaller showed me in Setting/Apps/OSMAnd~/Appstore: Installed by Kinginstaller ...and it is not listed in Launcher. I belive you that it works for you, but why that works for us? Do you have an idea? I am on LOS20 too.
King-Installer v1.2 didn't work for me either on my LineageOS phone,
because we have a different `com.android.packageinstaller` provided by our ROM.
That's why I created King-Installer v1.3, with the "Enable if you use rooted (LineageOS) phone" checkbox.
Question: Do you see in the /settings/apps/xxx/app-shop really: Google Play Store?
Yes I do, you can check the proof I uploaded here, as a comment on my PR
This is to make it less detectable that you're using modded software, however at the moment it's not a requirement.Reading the full manual I see few difference:
* You install stubs and AA BEFORE installing the Magisk-AA-Module.
(Currently AA will also be happy if you do not have the dependencies installed "as Google Play Store")
Did you try my v1.3 fork with the "Enable if you use rooted (LineageOS) phone" checkbox?* You installed the stubs with King-installer too, but if that doesn't work with OSMand, why it should work with the stubs? Or does it more than fake installation source?
Also please re-visit the ReadMe, I've added new installation / usage instructions earlier today.
The "Root installer" of Aurora Store is a requirement to "install as Google Play".* You used Aurora root installation mode, while I used default (session installation?).
I've checked the source code, and for as far as I researched it,
it was the only installation method which spoofed "com.android.vending" during installation.
Before I was using "Aurora Services" as the Aurora Store installation method,
which didn't work either.
