In the review, I saw the blogger installed Google services. How can this be implemented?
Can I ask one thing?
I can use GAPPS on ‘android_v220826’ installed trough oowow
But there is no GAPPS on ‘android_user’ I made from github code.
(Fix “Mipi screen UI display is flattened” is good at ‘android_user’)
@Jeter The link explains in detail how to add gapps code and compile it.
We followed the steps mentioned inhttps://github.com/goenjoy-hlm/google/tree/r-64bit for installing GAPPs for VIM4
We are using the vim4-android-11-64bit-v220826 release but we are getting few compilation errors.
Can you please suggest what is missing?
please ckeck below error_screenshot for your reference
Hi @goenjoy , Thanks for your quick response
Here are the steps
We are using following commands taking reference from here
Sorry, because there are large files, you need to execute the following command again to pull large files.
vim4_new$ cd vendor/amlogic/google/ vim4_new/vendor/amlogic/google$ git lfs pull
Hi @goenjoy Thanks for the solutions
Now we are able to see the google play store and we are able to install remaining apps
But some important application we are not able find this apps in Google play store
Google play music
**play Movies **
Looks like the VIM4 Android image may not be declaring the “features” required by the Android APK. The APK declares those in the AndroidManifest.xml file, through
You can see the list of features by installing the “Device Info HW” app, then open its “System” tab, and check “System Features”. However, I do not know (yet) where to modify the list of features declared by the VIM4 Android image.
If the problem is indeed that the Android image isn’t declaring the right features, I believe that I found where those are stored, and hence, how to add new ones:
Once you have adb working. Type
adb shell "ls /*/etc/permissions". I think that the features declared are simply the concatenation of all features found in those XML files. As a comparison, I found this list of XML files in the official Android repos: data/etc - platform/frameworks/native - Git at Google One interesting file is tablet_core_hardware.xml
Next step would be to add extra XML file to a VIM4, and I guess reboot, and check if the
Device Info HW for instance would be able to find the new features. If yes, I’m not sure what’ s required to make the Play Store reload that, maybe we need to re-register the device on the Play Store.
One confusing thing, is that ‘features’ and ‘permissions’ are linked/mixed.
I hope it helps.
The next version will fix this problem.
