Hello to all the FairPhone’s users,
as noted on ARCore support! ARCore is NOT supported on FP3 or FP3+.
I’m tryng to config Google’s ARCore in my FairPhone 3+, this is only for expert user and/or programmer.
For help me you need to:
- Have a FP3+ with Android (possibly NOT rooted), not ubuntu or debian or postmarketos or any GNU/Linux distro;
- Be an expert user, with knowledge of adb and logcat;
- Have or create a Github account;
- Basic (or better advanced) knowledge about image format, optic and camera (I lack this, I’m starting to study from 0);
- Have much free time (I don’t have it);
- Be very motivated.
If you are a noob please don’t ask for help, don’t ask an modified .apk or .ab (will be impossible or illegal) and ESPECIALLY don’t ask Google support.
Google’s ARCore staff permit to “experiment” new UNOFFICIAL devices as long as you don’t ask for help or official support.
If they receive requests they will remove the possibility for everyone, so please don’t do it.
If you need ARCore on your FairPhone but you have not the skill don’t ask help, study.
An unofficial help by FairPhone staff would be very appreciated but not pretended.
Google’s ARCore on FP3+ is VERY experimental and can be VERY instable, I’m obviously not responsable on any damage on both hardware or software side.
I don’t know if this hack can “brick” your phone. So you have to suppose it can.
Also if you have problem you cannot ask at anyone, create a complete backup first to hack your FirePhone 3+.
Also, please don’t ask for a FP2 or FP3 or FP4 custom profile, I don’t own such FairPhone and I’m not actually interested, If you have the skill you can do for yourself (you can look on my Github repo for hint how to do it).
Honestly a free (libre) implementation of ARCore would be MUCH better, but totally impossible for me.
Good hacking to all.
