When I was back on the stock ROM I used the Google Dialer and really liked the google assistant caller ID / answer feature of the app. It looks like those features are only available if the app is a system app?

I've tried to convert the Google Dialer app (from google play) to a system app by extracting the apk via these steps (https://beebom.com/how-extract-apk-android-app/) and then moving that base.apk to the /system/priv-app/ dir and rebooting. When I reboot the app isn't a system app.

I've then tried to install the .apk from the /system/priv-app dir with Root Explorer but it gives me an error that the apk cannot be parsed?

has anyone else been able to successfully convert the google dialer app to a system app?

Thanks in advance!

Ive never bothered to try because that function wasnt available even on stock ROM here in Australia when i last ran stock, if now even...

You might, if youre using Magisk, try Terminal App Systemizer Module (much easier than pokery in a file manager and crossing fingers):

Hey
Installed protonaosp today on my device for the first time.. Successfully rooted the device through patching the boot.img but I am losing root access every time I restart.
Anyone experiencing the same thing?
Magisk was working completely fine for me on evo x rom

Nvm: had to install magisk again through the app itself after flashing the boot img for once.
thanks

So I tried that (app systemized) magisk module. It was outdated in the magisk manager so I downloaded the source code and updated the android version it now installs correctly and I've systemized several apps including the Google dialer. I'm able to see the call screen option in there but it just shows "activating call screen (requires wifi)". It seems to be stuck on that? I've also tried to update the flags in the Google dialer XML file but that doesn't kick it over either...
I'm guessing the activating dialer is downloading something from Google that's not getting downloaded for some reason? Anyone have any ideas on how to get this to work?

ProtonAOSP: 11.5
phone: version 66.0.374464860-publicbeta
Google play: 25.6.14-21 [0] [PR] 376382668

Thank you!

Youre unlikely to get those kind of answers in this thread. I would try searching call screen in the search box, im sure theres probably plenty of leads. As i said previously, i'll be of no use, it literally doesnt work in my country

Donated, since flashing custom roms in the dark ages in the gingerbread androids, this is the single most polished ROM i have ever used.

China Tencent product, a must-have software for Chinese users. This system can only use version 8.5 now. If it exceeds 8.5, it will flash back. The same problem appeared on ArrowOS, but they fixed

    This ROM is too stable.
    Yeah... it's a bit suspicious, isn't it.

    Ok, magnaged to make the move from Bliss (10) to Proton (11), so far so good.

    However, I have a few things missing:

    a) customizing (colors, ...)
    b) edge sense can't be modified (long/short)
    c) no "terminate active app" by gesture (long swipe)
    d) no advanced power menu

    Are there any tricks or workarounds for those points?

    Any need to change kernel?

    I'm not passing savbety net, yet, may Google Play Store is not vertified.

    Tried this



    Google Pay should work with the following:
    • MagiskHide enabled in Magisk Manager
    • Do SafetyNet check in Magisk Manager
    If you dont pass SafetyNet, i would be surprised...

    If you pass SafetyNet, then next check Play Store is Certified (Google Play Store -> Settings -> About)

    If device is uncertified:

    • Toggle Airplane Mode to On
    • Clear Data for Google Play Store and Google Play Services
    • Reboot
    • Toggle Airplane Mode to Off
    • Wait 5 minutes
    • Check Play Store is certified
    • If Certified, open Google Pay, and add card

    You may need the latest Universal SafetyNet Fix from here:


    To use this new version, you will need Riru, from here (installed first, then reboot, the try USNF above):


    Do a clear of google play store/services and google pay afterwards, and if still no luck with google pay, remove card and readd...

    * Be aware that you should not use the very latest Magisk Alpha (706a4922) with Riru as it has known issues at the moment.

    Installation
    This ROM is currently distributed as factory images, similar to stock. Flash it the same way you would flash stock factory images. Don't forget to wipe all data using "fastboot -w" before booting the ROM.

    Firmware is included, so there is no specific requirement for which version of the stock ROM you are coming from.

    You can also use the quick & easy web installer, which allows you to install and update the ROM from any computer or phone without using the command line. The installer works entirely within your web browser and completes in as little as 4 minutes, depending on the speed of your internet connection. Consider using the web installer instead of installing manually.
