Unknown apps from this source


I have my own repo and Ive compiled and ran my own client ( versionCode: 1005000)

However when I try install from my repo Im seeing the “For your security, your phone is not allowed to install unknown apps from this source”

I have signed my app using the signing process outlined in the docs.

I thought the whole point of fdroid was it prevented this ?

I am on android 8.1.0


Did you give F-Droid the permission to install applications?

you mean this permission
<uses-permission android:name=“android.permission.REQUEST_INSTALL_PACKAGES”/>

So is there no way then besides having root and privileged-extension to have fdroid install apps without constantly asking for allow unknown sources to be accepted?

Of course it is, on my Oreo devices system asks you once, on first app install through F-Droid if I want to allow F-Droid to install apps…I say Yes and carry on…on the next installs I’m not asked about anything.

What ROM is this? Stock from an OEM or custom?
