If you have Iodé running, go to settings / system / microG / and turn on Safety NET and Google Device registration.
This will trick the store and act like you have google account.
I did as you said but still got this error with wildrift

Aybe the problem is with security settings.
Go to Iodé application / settings / protection selection / turn off (un tick) standard and customized security for wildrift.
It fixed the problem for Oculus app to me.
So 😔 not working with wildrift 😭 (it worked if i reinstall play store 🤣 - really dont like this way cause need root lucly patcher ...☹️)

See Riot Games are the devil's toys. 😄 I dont know why you obsessed with wild Rift. I was too but once you play some matches with Mobile Legends you gonna say its way better and much more honoring you.

Uff... I tried 3.1 ver with A12. UI has so bad design that I consider to downgrade to 2.4 with A11. Which means... No security updates, right?

hey guys, does anyone know where the feature for hidden apps did go to? Usually I used this option from the home screen before iodéOS 3.0. Now with the update I can not find this feature anymore :( please help

hey does anyone know about this? I am currently on iodéOS 3.0 but thinking about downgrading to 2.6. I still was not able to find the hidden apps feature in 3.0. Or will is it available in 3.1? thanks

Some problem with the OS that I have also with LineageOS: The administration rights bricks after a few weeks of fresh installation with the built in file manager, browser and photo gallery. Im unable to move/creat/delete anything on the phone or SD card. Even the buttons for that actions disappears.
I can get around by installing other applications which gets new priviliges so admin rights.
Seems like the OS has built in time lock for admin rights of apps.
I checked and it really has option for it but its disabled.
No matter if I switch it on - off, the stock apps lost admin rights.
Iodé OS has a feature that it can delete stock apps but cannot delete browser and file manager. Its a big miss to me having to have non functional apps on phone.

    iodéOS is a privacy-focused operating system powered by LineageOS and based on the Android mobile platform. iodéOS aims at protecting the user's privacy with a built-in adblocker and by freeing the smartphone from snitches.

    The objectives in the conception of this ROM are threefold:

    1. To keep the stability and security level of LineageOS, by minimizing the modifications made to the system. Apart the system modifications required by the adblocker, we mainly only added a few useful options commonly found in other custom ROMs, made some cosmetic changes, modified a few default settings to prevent data leaks to Google servers.
    2. To ease a quick adoption of this ROM by new users. We especially target users that are concerned by the protection of their privacy, but are not reluctant to still use inquisitive apps like Google ones. We thus included MicroG as well as a coherent set of default apps, and simplified the initial setup of the system. Particularly, an initialization of MicroG has been made with GCM notifications allowed by default, a privacy-friendly network location provider (DéjàVu) pre-selected, as well as Nominatim Geocoder.
    3. To provide a new and powerful way of blocking ads, malwares, data leaks of all kinds to many intrusive servers. We are developing an analyzer, tightly integrated into the system, that captures all DNS requests and network traffic, as well as a user interface (the iodé app). Compared to some other well-known adblockers, this has the advantages of:
      • Avoiding to lock the VPN for that use. You can even use another adblocker that uses VPN technology alongside our blocker.
      • Being independent of the kind of DNS server used by the system or set by an independent app: classical DNS on UDP port 53 or any other one, DNS over TLS (DoT), DNS over HTTPS (DoH), ..., as we capture the DNS requests before they are transmitted to the system function that emits the DNS request. What we do not support, is DoH when it is natively built into applications, i.e. when an app communicates directly with a DoH server, without asking name resolution to the system. It would require to decrypt HTTPS packets between such an app and the DoH server, which may create a big security hole.
      • Precisely mapping DNS requests and network packets to the Android apps that emitted (or received) them.
      • Deciding which apps have a filtered network usage (by default, all apps), and which ones can communicate with blacklisted servers.
      Since its first versions, we added many features to the iodé blocker: several levels of protection, fine-grained control over the hosts that should be blocked or authorized, displaying statistics on a map to see the quantity of data exchanged to which countries, clearing statistics... We are actively developing the blocker, and new functionalities will be regularly added.


    Changes in LineageOS to prevent data leaks:

    • Default DNS server: Google's DNS replaced by Quad9's 'unblocked' servers in all parts of the system.
    • A-GPS: patches to avoid leaking personnal information like IMSI to supl server.
    • Captive portal login: connectivitycheck.gstatic.com replaced by captiveportal.kuketz.de for connectivity check.
    • Dialer: Google default option replaced by OpenStreetMap for phone number lookup.

    Pre-installed apps:

    We included many useful default apps, but our choice cannot suit everyone; so we added the possibility to remove them. It can be done at the end of the phone setup, or at any time by going to Parameters -> Apps & Notifications -> Preinstalled apps.

    • MicroG core apps: GmsCore, GsfProxy, FakeStore.
    • NLP backends for MicroG : DejaVuNLPBackend (default), MozillaNLPBackend, AppleNLPBackend, RadioCellsNLPBackend, Nominatim Geocoder.
    • App stores : FDroid (with F-Droid Privileged Extension) and Aurora Store.
    • Browser: our own fork of Firefox (with Qwant as default search engine, many other ones added, telemetry disabled, parts of telemetry code removed) instead of Lineage’s default browser Jelly.
    • SMS: QKSMS instead of Lineage's default SMS app.
    • Email: p≡p (Pretty Easy Privacy).
    • Camera: our own fork of Open Camera, with a few tweaks.
    • Maps/navigation: Magic Earth GPS & Navigation (the only one free but not open source).
    • Keyboard: OpenBoard instead of AOSP keyboard.
    • PDF: Pdf Viewer Plus.
    • Personnal notes: Carnet.
    • {Ad/Malware/Data leak}-blocker: iodé.
    • News: to keep users informed about our developments, as well as a FAQ.
    • Meteo: Geometric Weather.

    Pre-included FDroid repository:

    The apps that we tweak or develop (microG services, the browser based on Firefox, the News app, Open Camera ...) are available through a repository that we included in FDroid (check the "Apps for iodéOS" category). For this purpose and to avoid name conflicts of some apps, we also had to make a few changes in FDroid.

    Useful options from other custom ROMs:
    • Smart charging (disables charging when a given level is reached, to protect battery health).
    • Fingerprint vibration toggle.
    • Swipe down to clear all in recent apps (Android 10 only).

    Great Rom, I am using it since 2 hours.

    One important note:
    Your installation guide has some mistakes(at least for unlocked phones )

    You do not tell which recovery should be used. Also that you need the recovery image and the file vbmeta .img.
    The TWRP xda page instructions for Heimdall Linux helped me:

    Just a quick heads up - TWRP will break stuff just like on my lineage, lineage recovery should be added to installation instructions instead.
    Manually flashing a disabled vbmeta image also isn't needed unless AVB was disabled in this build.

    Is there any way to use google RCS chat in google messages or restore whatsapp backups on this ROM.
    I'm aware using these apps compromises my privacy, but i need them to communicate with family and friends.
    I managed to finally restore my WhatsApp messages. If you have a spare device handy it helps, I'll assume in my instructions that you do and this device has WhatsApp with all your data on.

    On the spare device:
    • Open WhatsApp -> Settings -> Chats -> Chat Backup
    • Make sure "Back up to Google Drive" is set to "Never"
    • Then click "Back Up"
    • This will then save a local backup to the root of your device (well the main user folder)
    • Navigate to your root/user folder and compress the WhatsApp folder. It should contain 3 folders within it: Backups, Databases, Media.
    • Download Airdroid (or something similar, but this worked best for me) and start a web session.
    On the new device with iodé:
    • Go to the Local IP Address displayed in Airdroid (or equivalent)
    • Download the .zip file you created.
    • Unzip this file into the root/user folder that you found it on the spare device.
    • DOUBLE CHECK: That the folder structure is the same as on the spare device:
      • Root/User
        • WhatsApp
          • Backups
          • Databases
          • Media
    • Install WhatsApp from the Aurora Store (or whereever you prefer)
    • You should then be prompted to "Restore Backup" after the SMS/Phone verification in the process.
    Hope this helps!

    p.s. Use Signal rather than WhatsApp if you're interested in even more privacy. The hard part is getting others to use it.
