The most important difference is aptx is not hardware related and the aptx shared objects are generic. The blobs needed for galileo needs to match the soc, the android version (or you need to reverse engineere the e.g. the nougat hal (from zuk) to work with pie's (or q's) location stack via wrapper or shimming) and the rom's (the rom, that should receive the galileo extended blobs).
If we find a device with an android 9 and/or android 10 stock rom supporting galileo we can try to put them in a source build rom.
Thanks you for the reply, I have been frustrate to make the idea more public. It was weird that the feature wasnt implemented by Oneplus, I guess because they are a "Small company". Is the GNSS firmware the same for the 3/3T between 6.0 to 9.0?
While the 3/3T and Zuk Edge have the same SoC, the Edge was has been abandoned by Lenova, see the XDA forum for the Zuk Edge. So the last offical stock ROM is Oreo based.
Luckily the whole phones stock ROM is open source? I didn't get the rhetoric.
Also could there be a hardware implementation? Is there a requirement for a pin to the antenna like FM radio?
