Modifications

Allow Signature Spoofing

  • This allows microG Services Core and FakeStore to fake GApps properly
wget -O ~/'Downloads/GmsCore-android_frameworks_base-N.patch' 'https://raw.githubusercontent.com/microg/android_packages_apps_GmsCore/master/patches/android_frameworks_base-N.patch' && cd ~/'android/lineage' && patch --no-backup-if-mismatch --strip='1' --directory='frameworks/base' < ~/'Downloads/GmsCore-android_frameworks_base-N.patch' && rm -f ~/'Downloads/GmsCore-android_frameworks_base-N.patch' && sync

Allow Location Providers Outside /system

  • This allows microG Services Core to provide UnifiedNlp without having to be installed to /system/priv-app or having to have an outdated NetworkLocation.apk there
wget -O ~/'Downloads/UnifiedNlp-android_frameworks_base-N.patch' 'https://raw.githubusercontent.com/microg/android_packages_apps_UnifiedNlp/master/patches/android_frameworks_base-N.patch' && cd ~/'android/lineage' && patch --no-backup-if-mismatch --strip='1' --directory='frameworks/base' < ~/'Downloads/UnifiedNlp-android_frameworks_base-N.patch' && rm -f ~/'Downloads/UnifiedNlp-android_frameworks_base-N.patch' && sync

Steven Black's Unified Hosts File

  • This provides basic ad-blocking, anti-malware, and blocks other undesirable websites/connections
rm -Rf '/tmp/master.zip' '/tmp/hosts-master' && wget 'https://github.com/StevenBlack/hosts/archive/master.zip' -O '/tmp/master.zip' && unzip '/tmp/master.zip' -d '/tmp' && python3 '/tmp/hosts-master/updateHostsFile.py' --auto --output ~/'android/lineage/system/core/rootdir/etc' && rm -Rf '/tmp/master.zip' '/tmp/hosts-master' && sync

Phone

  • This needs done after breakfast
sed -i 's/voice_capable">false/voice_capable">true/g' ~/'android/lineage/device/asus/deb/overlay/frameworks/base/core/res/res/values/config.xml'
sed -i 's/aosp_base.mk/aosp_base_telephony.mk/g' ~/'android/lineage/device/asus/deb/lineage.mk'
