I’ve been having some troubles trying to install the f-droid privileged extension on my Pixel XL running Android 9.0. When I try to update or install applications using the privileged extension, I get an error saying “Error installing package: the privileged permissions have not been granted to the extension!”.
Here are the steps I took to install F-droid and friends:
- Installed the standard f-droid apk from f-droid.org
- Downloaded and installed “F-Droid privileged extension” application from within f-droid itself (https://f-droid.org/en/packages/org.fdroid.fdroid.privileged/)
- Flashed the ota zip from TWRP (https://f-droid.org/repo/org.fdroid.fdroid.privileged.ota_2090.zip)
Is this the right order? I’ve tried some other permutations but haven’t had any luck yet. If anyone could provide any suggestions or let me know what they have tried, I would love to hear it.
I miss the functionality to install without having to click through each update/installation - the only time I’ve ever actually had this working was when I ran LineageOS-microG with f-droid privileged preinstalled
