I recently bought a FP2, after my FP1 finally crashed. After starting it, I was shocked, that I cannot deinstall such Apps as GMail, or google hangout, but only am able to deactivate them. Thhis did not satisfy me.
Thus, I did some research and decided, that I wabt to install LineageOS for MicroG in the first step, and later on extend it with playmaker, in order to get those play store apps, that are important to me, without google. The only problem: I have no plan, how to implement this software and failed to find a step by step instruction. (note: since the phone is totally new, I do not need the mitigation, but a new setup of the system)
What I found until now:
- the LineageOS for MicroG official website with FAQs, downloads and so forth
- The downloads - which one is the one I need? Is it one of those from the 17.12.2018? And if yes, which of those three? If it is the lineage-15.1_20181217-microG-fp2.zip, do I need to unpack it on my Computer first before starting the installation?
- this wiki, which I should follow according to the lineage for microG-website, but which confuses me, since there is no .img data in the LineageOF for MicroG downloads, put also no .img in the unpacked lineage-15.1_20181217-microG-fp2.zip: //wiki.lineageos.org/devices/FP2/install
Thus, I do not know, which file I should later use in the installatation process.
So, those are the question, I have so fare. I used the search fuction in the forum, but was not successfull in finding any other than the instruction for the mitigation and the instruction link for installing the normal LineageOS (//wiki.lineageos.org/devices/FP2/install ), which does not solve my problem.
Currently I am very clueless and hope to receive help here.
Thank you a lot in advance. I wish you some great coming-up-christmas-days
