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.

cu,

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!

    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

    Current Release

    Stable: 23.1.1.20210117 "BusyCompat"

    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 %

    Top referers:
    - XDA
    - Miui Browser 'Hot'
    - 4PDA

    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).
