Pro1X, Stock Android non-GMS build?


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I've just received the Pro1x and I only want to use android without GMS. Although I can debloat it from adb I woud ask if it's possible from FXtec to make a stock build without GMS or if I have to wait until some lineage OS build comes to reallity. I'm the only one with this needs?

Thanks in advance!

If I'm not mistaken, I don't think they can and still release properly certified Android.

@EskeRahn I've ususally use this: https://github.com/0x192/universal-android-debloater but that's not what I want.

@Hook Whaaaat?  I don' know anything about that. Please some info is welcome!

I've never been able to find a source that spells it out, but I believe that once a company has had  their Android GMS certified, there are road blocks to their providing a non-certfied version without Gapps. But, it's a guess, not fact.

For an AOSP based version like LineageOS or AICP we will have to wait, and no, I have no idea how long, unfortunately.

Don't worry. I know the rule about no ETA

Ok. Thanks

I've asked f(x)tec some days ago about getting a Gappless version as an alternative of having to deal with google spy stuff and google's ToS (which is even worse than gmail's🤮). I'm waiting for an answer.

Do note that If there were early LOS builds, I wouldn't have asked that.

We got this with the Pro1, but as a once-off that @tdm kindly provided because he had access to the source as the LineageOS developer at the time.  I don't believe it was updated though, and while it would be nice to get it again I wouldn't get my hopes up.  Note this also likely means no OTA updates.

It would be nice with an official AOSP build, with updates, that LineageOS, AICP and others could build from.

There is a GMS-less Android build available. I updated the G-drive link in here: 

 I suggest using QFIL method to flash rather than adb sideload. Good luck!

Is it possible to flash this with adb or fastboot? I'd rather not figure out how to set up a windows VM with USB passthrough just to play with this phone.

Yes, you can. I'll list the general steps below, let me know if you have any questions:

 

1. Unlock bootloader first by following the guide here.

2. Then, flash the GMS-less recovery.img by doing:

adb reboot bootloader

fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

3. After that, reboot your Pro1-X to recovery mode. On dead Android logo, use button combo : Power + Volume Up

adb reboot recovery

4. Use Volume buttons to navigate the menu to select "Apply update from ADB", and use power button to select.

5. We will now use ADB sideload to flash the "“merged-qssi_bengal-ota.zip” inside the GMS-less firmware folder. 

adb sideload merged-qssi_bengal-ota.zip

6. Once the process reaches 100%, you'll see the recovery menu again. Select "Reboot system now".

It would be great if we could have an equally simple process to flash it to its stock Android-state (with GMS).

There is another way to use a script to flash all OTA images in fastbootd mode, but this needs more fine tuning. Same method stated above also works with GMS build, but still need testing too. I'm working with beta-testers to ensure everything works before I publish here.
