Google Nexus Player

Code:
- Your warrenty is now void.
- You have been warned.
- Use at your own risk.

Introduction:
This is the Official Lineage OS 16.0 thread for the (Asus) Google Nexus Player , codename fugu.

How to Install:
Please follow the instructions on our Official LineageOS Wiki page here.

If you don't follow these instructions, please don't expect support here. We also don't support 3rd party addons (Magisk/XPosed/Dolby/Viper/etc.), so please don't seek support if you use these.

Known Bugs:
  • None!

Notes:
  • We pass SafetyNet without any 3^rd party addons. AddonSU, and other addons will likely change this.
  • Because Lineage 15.1 is AOSP based as opposed to Lineage 14.1 which used a hybrid AOSP/CAF base, the in-remote Microphone works!
  • Neither OpenGApp's nor MindTheGApp's ATV packages currently fit on the Nexus Player's small system partition! Use the GApps Iink if you want them -- if you use these, Google apps will crash, and Developer Settings will not open. Use *only* the ATV GApps I link below if you wish to use GApps.

Download:

  • LineageOS Updater
  • Custom ATV OpenGApps TVStock Build (thanks to @msg01 for discovering the root of this problem and building this package!) -- You will want to either sideload or install the Google Webview from the Play Store (or the one in that Google Drive folder, as it was excluded in this GApps build to make it fit in fugu's small system partition.

Same. Tried force quitting and clearing data for the Play Store. Didn't help. It just sits at "install pending" forever for any app.

EDIT: I tried again from scratch but with the javelinanddart build of "MindTheGapps-8.1.0-atv-x86-20180320_010247.zip". Same issue.

The same thing is happening to me. All applications remain in Pending Installation.

Yeah, its a stupid Google bug. Let the play store do its thing and update, don't try to install/update anything.

What is happening is Google Play is updating, then Google Play service is doing like a 150mb update in the background at a turtle's pace.

Then reboot from in the settings app. Should solve it.

Also, I didn't block development settings? You need to click the build # a ton of times as always. They work great here.

Is there a way to operate TWRP other than a mouse on the USB port with an OTG cable?

My OTG cables have a right angle bend that overlaps the HDMI and I can't get them to both fit. I even took a Dremel to a cheap HDMI cable and can't get it to fit. Forcing it will put torque on the USB connector and I don't want to break it internally. I suppose I'll order a straight OTG cable from Amazon, but it will take a couple days to get here.

Can someone please post some screenshots? I'm dying of curiosity as to what LineageOS for Android TV is
Try it then? ;p Honestly though, right now we don't have Customizer updated, so if you sue the O launcher, it'll look the same as stock, with extra OS features.

Yeah, TWRP is a pain on this device. I use an AirMouse via OTG.

I should have Lineage Recovery (navigable with the bottom button like the fastboot mode on fugu), ready in a bit here.

Great work! As soon as Netflix is fixed I will start using this. The only purpose my Nexus Player serves is to run OpenVPN and Netflix UK to watch certain shows I can't get here in the states.

Looking forward to trying this, will be checking in frequently.

After re-installing everything from scratch I will be able to download applications from the Play Store. Unfortunately, Netflix does not work (reports error ui-800-3). Another program that does not work is MX-Player.

stuck with google play store

Hey guys,

any suggestions?
- From TWRP:
- Wipe Data/Cache/System
- Install Lineage
- Install mindthegapps OR opengapps
- clear cache
- reboot

With mindthegapps, it seems like lineage doesn't install as this looks like the stock oreo os, google play store is there, but I'm stuck with all of my apps pending installation issue - even when left overnight. unable to sideload
With opengapps - lineage seems to successfully install, but then there is no google play store, so im unable to download anything - i thought maybe i could workaround by downloading the apk through the web browser, but their is no file explorer so im unable to browse to the apk file.

I'm stuck - would greatly appreciate any / all help!

got it working

Hey guys - figured it out. Was an issue with the opengapps file I was using. Had to remove a few things from the apps folder.

    Man this is awesome!

    The Nexus player on stock 8.0 was not the best experience, but I didn't want to downgrade to 7.1.2 as per many recommendations. Found this ROM after finally getting back on XDA to do something about it. Reflashed the latest factory image, installed TWRP, 4/16 ROM, GApps in the post, and lastly Magisk for Adaway support mainly. Things are working great. Every app and major feature I tried worked, including Netflix and Google Home support.

    I noticed some very minor hiccups. Not sure if any have been reported before. If you double tap home on the Nexus remote it opens recents, but I haven't found a way to use the clear all button or close any of the apps. I guess you're not supposed to close them anyway. If you enable advanced reboot in Dev options, doesn't actually seem to come up. Moonlight for some reason flickers in the game selection menu but doesn't flicker ingame so that's not a big deal and very well could be moonlights fault itself. And lastly, so minor, when you click the microphone search button in the play store, it plays the audio cue ding twice before listening to your voice.

    Overall, fantastic fantastic ROM. It's been a long time since I needed to root any device after getting a pixel, but when your TV is 2 years out of date almost, it's thanks to people like you for keeping it alive.

    Edit: To my surprise, remote control with HDMI-CEC works way better than it did with stock. Bravo.

    Fun fact, some CEC features/sepolicy are not present on stock, so CEC seemed to be hit and miss on stock ;p

    Also, another fun fact -- Lineage OS 16.0 now boots. Needs a lot of work, but boots :)

    16.0 development update:

    All progress can be tracked here, and this chain alone will get you building what I am building:

    https://review.lineageos.org/q/topic:fugu-p

    Right now you need to either run setup-makefiles.sh or use: https://github.com/npjohnson/proprietary_vendor_asus/tree/lineage-16.0

    Right now it boots, and all works except Wi-Fi (should be an easy fix), Audio (going to need some real work here), and in-remote Microphone (no clue if I can get this working again).

    But other than that it runs better than Oreo frame-rate/dropped-frames wise in my opinion!

    Hope to have more to say soon.

    Donations welcome, have some tuition payments coming up, haha.

    Update: Everything works on 16.0... except Audio lol - when I figure that out, it will ship. Should be before 17.0 drops, then onto getting fugu up to 17.0. :)

    L1, Netflix 1080p, Screen Cast, and Android TV Remote app are all fixed.

    No bugs remain on fugu 15.1 - enjoy.
