The Privileged Extension is an optional add-on. It does not include the F-Droid client. You should install F-Droid client from within Android and flash the Privileged Extension using a custom recovery.
Hi, From my experience, running LOS 16 on BQ Aquaris : I flashed the following zip org.fdroid.fdroid.privileged.ota_2090.zip that you can get from here : https://f-droid.org/en/packages/org.fdroid.fdroid.privileged.ota/. You need root privilege, aka addonsu.zip installed before (for LOS).
Then once I boot up the device, F-Droid was installed, and Priviliged Exstension as well. Automatic updates for F-Droid Apps work like a charm.
Hope that helps,
Basically this ota zip didn’t work in android 10 roms. I think Dev’s should work on it. I tried all possible thinks but not working in all roms. In twrp recovery it says it’s flashed successfully but when I boot phone there is no app and nothing change.
Manually app installed but that ota zip is just bluff I guess. I always tap to install button always to install app from F-droid. Also there is no support from Dev’s which is worst thing in my opinion.
