The device is brand new and runs Android 11.
I downloaded the apk from the f-droid Web site. So far, I tried the following:
- Settings -> Security -> Allow installation from unknown sources
- enabled for file manager
- enabled for Chrome (to launch from Downloads)
- Activated developer options, turned on USB debugging
Also rebooted the device. All this doesnt help.
Any idea how to overcome this issue and install f-droid?
Try rebooting in safe mode. Also try downloading the apk again. Error might come if apk is corrupted.
No, did not. Another, bigger problem appeared: MIUI’s lock screen turns off WLAN after some time. I turned off all battery savers, access restrictions, but had no luck. So I returned it to the dealer. No more MIUI…
We can close this issue.
I appreciate that you’ve returned your handset so this matter is over.
But to reassure other users, I have a Poco phone (still Xiaomi) that’s brand new and running miui 12.5 and Android 11. No problems with f-droid. It installs just fine.
