Hi, apparently I’m having troubles to understand this process properly and couldn’t find sufficient instruction anywhere, hope someone will be able to give me some orientation.
Device: Moto E (2nd Gen, 2015) 4G/LTE - Surnia
OS: LineageOS 17.1-20210430-NIGHTLY-surnia (Android 10)
Host machine: Debian (Testing) with
fastboot, from updated official repositories.
After reading this: https://gitlab.com/fdroid/privileged-extension/#f-droid-privileged-extension
I went there: https://f-droid.org/packages/org.fdroid.fdroid.privileged.ota/
Downloaded the last ZIP: https://f-droid.org/repo/org.fdroid.fdroid.privileged.ota_2120.zip
And then following this: https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/surnia/install#installing-lineageos-from-recovery
I rebooted the device in Recovery mode (with Lineage custom Recovery, already installed) and followed:
On the device, select “Apply Update”, then “Apply from ADB” to begin sideload.
On the host machine, sideload the package using: adb sideload path-and-filename.zip
Once you have installed everything successfully, click the back arrow in the top left of the screen, then “Reboot system now”.
Apparently everything went fine. Now, once rebooted I don’t see nothing F-Droid nowhere. Is this correct? I did everything fine?
I then downloaded in the smartphone: https://f-droid.org/F-Droid.apk
But when trying to install it the system (LOS) tells me that, “For your security, your phone is not allowed to install unknown apps from this source.”, and if I go to Settings it offers me to “Allow from this source”. Is this the idea? Should I allow and that’s it, or this is not working right at the moment?
Please, let me know if I’m not being clear enough or should add any other data.
Any clarification would be most welcomed.
Thanks a lot in advance.
