Install lineage.microg.org .
Unfortuately they are stuck at LOS16 for santoni :-(


Official lineageOS has no signature spoofing and nanodroid can't patch android 11.
Ok - this I overlooked and thought NanoDroid could handle the LOS18 ROM and patch it. Any idea if this will be possible in the near future?


P.S.: you can try other methods to get signature spoofing on android 11 like patching services.jar or xposed module fakegapps or crDroid https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...android-6-x-7-x-santoni-stable.4176461/unread
Looked shortly into patching services.jar - handling that is too much for me :-(

Never did anything with xposed so far - will have a look into it.

As jabiyeff is doing the LOS18 I use and the mentioned crDroid ROM - maybe I will look into this way. Would have preferred to stay on plain LOS though :-(

Thanks anyway for the guidance.

Hi. I ve a Samsung A40 on crDroid ROM (7.7 [ROM/A11] VANILLA OFFICIAL [ARM64][A40-SM405FN]) with flamegapps installed. I installed nanodroid with magisk and reboot. Everything goes fine, I can enable all the stuff in microG and everyting looks fine. But when I reboot again I got a "google play services keeps stopping" and the icon of the microG parameters disapeared. I ve tried re installing it, installing microG coreAPK to get the last version etc. Same. Works fine after first reboot, go back the google play services after second reboot. Any help welcome.

I would try a clean installation. Wipe system and data. Flash crDroid. Boot and make sure there is no GApps

Thnaks for the quick answer. Wanted to avoid a factory reset but seems the easiet and cleanest; you re right. Done. seems to work. MigroG settings stays visible after reboot, no google play services notifcation (logical, indeed). In self check in microG setting I can tick all the boxes except "permission to access location in the background". don't know if mandatory or not.

Depends on what location based services you use. Normal sattelite based geolocation (gps) works independently

Managed to tick all the boxes after a an update of microg from F droid. Looks good. GPS does not work on Osmand or others, will try to look for a solution. Thanks again!

I knew this page,
but the description does not help in all cases. I followed the description exactly, but the new renamed bromite webview version is not recognized by my system.
Until the renaming of the package, all updates ran absolutely smoothly since installation via nanodroid
Unfortunately, the bromite developer does not give support, he said you should look for a solution yourself on the Internet :-(

Actually, the updates do continue to be offered via F-Droid BUT going by the description, it may now be just the vanilla Chromium version. [screenshot] Given that none of my older ROMs run Magisk (a root method I never cared for) I'll just continue on with the provided updates.

On newer Android I use the Magisk module mentioned above to get the new one.
What the dev csagan5 says is quite correct with regards to getting the new version to work. See the wiki. A long time ago we were testing getting Bromite webview to work on OEM stock ROMs. They/some/most had no support for `com.android.webview` so it wasn't possible. Manual attempts to do so would result in problems with the ROMs. Today's ROMs, OEM or custom, would have to have support for the new package name (`org.bromite.webview`). Quite sure none do at this point (haven't checked recently).
At the moment the aforementioned Magisk Webview Manager is the easiest way to possibly use the new webview.

The latest magisk version of nanodroid bromite webview is 87 and it's recent enough for me.

Tried it on a Yu Fly F9(chinese android 7.1.1 phone), stock webview version was only 52 and apps were getting broken from its age.

Installing android system webview, bromite webview normally as apps didnt work and it couldn't switch to them in developer settings, only the old 52 webview was always being shown. Magisk webview manager also didn't work as it needs android 8 at least.

So in the end that was the only working systemless solution without messing with signatures and stuff. Awesome, happy to get some more use of this smartphone now.

Hi!
I'm trying to put MicroG on my Unihertz Jelly Pro. Running the newest stock ROM (there is no working custom ROM), which is Android 8.1.0.
I went by https://gitlab.com/Nanolx/NanoDroid/-/blob/master/doc/Installation.md
I installed the newest Magisk v24.3.
For the deodex'ing I followed DeodexServices.md. I Found both a .odex and a .vdex file, so I followed the procedure for both and put the resulting files in services.jar as classes.dex and classes2.dex. Before, the services.jar only had a META-INF directory inside and was otherwise empty.

I'm stuck now at patching Signature Spoofing. The NanoDroid-patcher-23.1.2.20210117.zip says
services.jar status: DEODEX
...
!! failed to apply patches

Did I do the deodex'ing wrong nonetheless? Or what else could I try?

You could try xposed module fakegapps

Hi,

sorry for directing people to that complicated procedure for such a long time:
My best known method for getting signature spoofing on unsupporting Android 11 and 12 is the good old xposed method.

Install magisk modules "Riru" and "Riru - LSPosed"
Install LPSosed module FakeGapps whew-inc fork
Enable recommende apps in FakeGapps

Hey, I’m very glad I found this and it worked for signature spoofing thanks a lot. However, the nlp part does not work the OS does not recognise it. Is there anything I might have missed or is it another part that I should look at specifically?

I know it’s a bit off topic here but I figured I’d ask you as I used the above method.

Thanks for your help

    Hello, I have problem and hope for help in this forum - I updated to the 19 LOS MicroG, it has MicroG already installed, Fakestore and two location modules (which is new) , it works well all boxes are ticked two location modules could be activated so far so fine, BUT there is no patched playstore and the installer I worked with till 18.1 (FriendlyNeighbourhoodShane) is no use in this circumstances. But I should reinstall some apps from playstore like my newspapers or for example LectureNotes, there is no open source app which could replace them. I'm sorry but I need them
    Oh. Lecture notes is a paid app. Maybe you can find a workaround with the app developer. (I don't recommend pirating).

    For all fee apps I use aurora store.

    For NLP to work correctly, microG has to be a system app. Having magisk in place, I recommend a module

    NanoDroid

    NanoDroid is a installer for various OpenSource related things, most noticably microG and F-Droid. It supports direct /system installation, both devices with or without A/B partition scheme, aswell as Magisk Mode (module) installation. It also includes several tools (eg. GNU Bash, shell utilities, more), scripts, fonts, sounds and additional features (system debloating, init scripts, automatic logcat creation), aswell as a companion F-Droid Repository.

    Furthermore it allows the user to do fine-graded installations using configuration files, which allow to choose what to install, or if several alternatives are available, which of them, see "Alter Installation" in the full documentation (link at the end of this post).

    In order for full microG experience NanoDroid contains a modified Play Store which allows (in-)app-purchases with microG, which would normally not be possible. It also tries to remove all previously installed GApps on it's own. For ROMs without builtin signature spoofing support NanoDroid includes an on-device Patcher which tries to patch your ROM from TWRP.

    Versions until 15.1 were called NanoMod, starting with 16.0 they're called NanoDroid.

    NanoDroid does now have a companion F-Droid Repository for easy updates of Play Store (patched with (in-)app-purchase support) and MPV builds Repository Info-Page

    I never had a look about how much users NanoDroid might have gotten meanwhile, but I checked the stats, just for fun. So, if you wanna know, I'm leaving this here.

    Just to make it clear: no personal information is stored, only basic stuff, like country of origin, Browser agent or what has been accessed, no tracking or profiling.

    All values from May 1st to May 24th, for HTTPS access only (HTTP access to my site is down to less than 5 %, so I didn't bother).

    NanoDroid (Zips):
    - Full/Stable: ~29.300 (!!)
    - Full/Beta: ~500
    - microG/Stable: ~16.500 (!!)
    - microG/Beta: ~1.000

    NanoDroid F-Droid repo:
    - F-Droid repo update checks: ~88.000
    - custom GmsCore installs: ~4.000
    - patched Play Store installs: ~3.500
    - unofficial MPV build installs: ~1.350

    Access by country (Zips):
    - unknown (unresolved, Tor, VPN, or unknown to statistic software): 52 %
    - Germany 5 %
    - Brazil 4 %

    Access by country (F-Droid):
    - unknown (unresolved, Tor, VPN, or unknown to statistic software): 30 %
    - Germany 11 %
    - Russia 4 %

    OMG, I'm working on a project which attracts more than 45.000 users (active users of course unknown). I never thought NanoDroid would become this huge.

    Thanks a lot for your ongoing support!

    Hi everyone,

    I know I've been inactive for about 2 or 3 months here.

    Those who follow the git repository might already know that some groundbreaking work was going on since beginning of August.

    A new beta release 22.6.91 (= 22.7-beta2) will drop this weekend. What's to expect:

    - full support for Android 10 (many issues resolved)
    - full support for Android 10 **if deodexed** in the Patcher
    - flashing all Packages (except the Uninstaller, needs a few changes, still) through Magisk Manager, this includes the Patcher aswell (yes, yes!)
    - more. See ChangeLog.md for the full list.

    I won't go into reading the past 10+ pages, if there are any unresolved issues or questions, feel free to post them again (or in case of issues even better: create a ticket over at gitlab, with logs included).
