I consider having MicroG
Signature Spoofing/MicroG support
After my good experience in terms of performance boost when I switched from OpenGApps to BitGApps, I wonder what will happen if I go one step further and give MicroG a try, too.
Has anybody tried MicroG yet?
I'm impressed with this:
This is a simple MicroG installer. It can install MicroG and other stuff into your system partition or as a Magisk module. It supports virtually all mobile architectures (arm/64, x86/64, mips/64) and fully supports KitKat and above. It can also (mostly) support much older versions, but sync adapters and some location providers won't work. It can even uninstall itself from your device, just rename it and flash it again.
Can you give me a little help to find the zips?
I can image. I'm lucky, it appears on the left side on my phone.You are right, but when you type quickly on the keyboard, you keep tapping the icon that covers the key. It's getting a mess all the time.
adb shell settings put secure show_rotation_suggestions 0
First of all in recovery flash:
2-microG.zip ( which one is your decision )
3-Select: Wipe Dalvik Cache & Wipe Cache
4-Press 'Reboot System'
Second part, configure the microG:
1.- Open microG Settings
2.- Self check
3.- Should appear all ticked
4.- Press Power Button and select Restart
Today I stumbled over a rather peculiar problem:
It seems impossible to pair with an Echo Dot gen. 4
Thanks mernurisha, I just "dirty flashed" it (via TWRP without any wipes) and the update worked well.
However, I detected still two issues:
- the wireless display mirroring is not working. The TV finds the S4 mini smartphone. However, when I want to connect to my TV, the phone reboots as soon as the connection is tried to be established.
- NFC seems not to work. I tried several apps from F-Droid and several cards, but there is nothing detected. Does it work for others?
Yes, they have been included. As I said, the app is perhaps suitable for older android versions. Otherwise, I do not know why.still the same score.
Did you include your modifications in lineage-18.1-20210621-UNOFFICIAL-serranovelte ?
Had a similar Situation some months ago. Try to copy every "single" file from root directory to a New directory. It helped me, micro SD was still OK but there was a Problem with one of the single files in the root directory. Hope it helps you too!Today I noticed a problem with my external miniSD (exFAT formated). It worked fine since a year, I think. But now I can't access the sd anymore. Futhermore the phone says I should install it again. Now I can choose the usage: removable external SD or internal memory. Both decisions will lead to a formated SD, means data loss. For me no way, it's a 64GB miniSD! So I did some digging. Within TWRP I can access the data, with a PC, too. So at the end no data loss, but I couldn't get the sd to work without reformating using Android 10/11. So there was no workaround, this means work, backup data, reformat sd within android, copy data back. Very annoying! Futhermore I couldn't figure out why the problem occoured in the first place and how to prevent it in the future. Very annoying, too. However this seams to be an exFAT specific problem. Because a reformated sd with FAT32 doesn't show this problem. With FAT32 you will get the same install dialog in the first place, but after that there is no need to reformat, data loss, whatever ... . Therefore my advice for all Android 10 oder 11 users would be, format your external SD to FAT32! Beware of exFAT! Maybe someone can shed some light into it, because I have no explanation for this behavior.
Hi. Thanks to mernurisha for this ROM. I just installed it and it works very well.
I have a question: I don't want to install GApps but I consider having MicroG. For MicroG there is signature spoofing needed. Is this somehow possible with this ROM and if yes does anyone have a hint how to do it?
All the best, rom4nb
I think I have found a bug:
The search function is missing in the music app. There is usually a search button in the music app next to the three dots that open the menu.
See the attached screenshots: on the left Galaxy S4 Mini with missing search, on the right how it should be (here example from my other Samsung Smartphone)
As it is the system music app I see no way to reinstall the app myself. Maybe it's a bug of the ROM? Can someone confirm this bug?View attachment 5280185
Will reinstall help? Or do I need to find another app?
Do you know which pedometer app is compatible with this rom?
GPS also works for me. VoLTE is not supported by my network operator, so I cannot test it.
But I found another problem yesterday: when I want to share the screen over WIFI, I see the TV and I can start the connection (TV also shows connection in progress). But as soon as you think connection is now established and the screen should be shared, the phone reboots. I tried several times, the screen share always triggered a reboot.
