Of course, I'm an oaf
And of course the dreaded Gapps issue too... don't need Gapps for much, just a handful of apps I fear I can't get via fdroid such as DSVideo to watch videos via the NAS
Good luck with that. Perhaps there is another way to install Gapps without TWRP?@spoo333 Yes, just install PHH's Superuser app from fdroid:
F-Droid ist ein installierbarer Katalog mit FOSS-Apps (Free and Open Source Software) für Android. Der Client vereinfacht die Suche und Installation von Apps und behält den Überblick über Aktualisierungen.f-droid.org
I have no clue on how to get TWRP running, therefore not yet played around with Magisk.
But two weeks of vacation ahead, so maybe I will further investigate into this.
Ok, cool, good to hear that unlocking still works with the most recent stock rom. Thanks.
The Lineage OS is based on phh treble rom and there is a page not updated of the Mate 9. Your devices is similar to ours so it was a type "A" and now it should be "AB", use an app from the google store to check this info.
This is the link, just search your device mine is the M5 8" wifi (sht-w09). You can flash a vanilla (no gapps), the gapps version (be aware is Read Only). if you need a rewritable System partition download the vndklite version (arm64-AB-gapps-vndklite is 2,9Gb but it will not fit in the standard partition <2,9GB ).Hi Massima,
Sorry for this noob question - where would I find the M5 entry in the phh's wiki?
And generally, is it possible to install a treble rom on the M5 with gapps and functioning bluetooth? I've been using Openkirin so far but no luck with bluetooth there.
Many thanks for any help you can offer.
