I've just found this trick to install Playstore (phonesky) posted on github for LOS18.1 MicroG but did'nt try it yet...
Main part missing for android 11 is a stable patcher. You don't need that for lineage.microg.org . What components of nanodroid do you use?@Setialpha Do you consider Android 11 support stable yet? I see there are still some bug fixes and changes queued up in the changelog for the next version.
I'm on LOS4microg 17.1 with Nanodroid, and would like to upgrade to 18.1, provided I can safely flash Nanodroid on it.
Thanks for the info! I use the main zip (patched Play Store), plus Bromite, Google libs, and OSMAnd.
Each setup is different. You can get no guarantee. I always try to have a second phone setup. You can try to do a dirty upgrade.
Oh, I'll definitely be doing a clean install. I don't want to compromise my daily driver by being lazy. Hence, a weekend-long process instead of an evening.
Wouldn't it be easier to enable the Bromite repo in F-Droid's settings, then F-Droid would offer any updates.
How about not installing nanodroid on lineage.microg.org ? There is a magisk module for patched päaystore. Everything else can be installed as user app.I am struggling trying to install LineageOS 18.1 & NanoDroid on a OnePlus 8T (A/B slots, virtual partitions from Super partition, TWRP limited beta).
Neither TWRP nor LineageOS Recovery would install the NanoDroid zip. There is no OrangeFox for this device.
I succeeded to install LOS for microg, adb push the NanoDroid.zip and install from Magisk/"Install from storage". However, it ignored nanodroid-apps and nanodroid-setup from the same folder. Yet the config folders listed in Applications.md are read-only or do not even exist:
Also, the permissions RECEIVE_SMS and ACCESS_BACKGROUND_LOCATION are unavailable, which may be the cause why some apps are stuck on startup (F-Droid) or crashing (including Magisk Manager). It's a known issue but the suggested fix does not work for me, as again the given paths are inaccessible or non-existing.
Do you know an easy way to get NanoDroid installed (controlled by nanodroid-setup and -apps files) on LOS18.1 on such a device?
I had been seeking NanoDroid's convenience of one-stop-shopping. But sure, I'll try that now. Thanks!
I don't know anything about the file you linked. But from the size i guess it is lineageOS without GApps. Thats good. Try to run it without GApps or microG first to see what's missing and how stable it is.Hello kurtn,
knew about that link already, however there only LOS16 is available :-(
I prefer staying on the current LOS18 builds here:
To my understanding installing microG via NanoDroid through Magisk is the one way to get it actually working, as NanoDroid is "paving the way" for microG requirements.
What am I missing here?
