Hey everyone !
My name is Ségolène, I’m French and I’m 27 years old.
I really need a very special app, that I can’t replace, and that won’t work on my phone. And I really like my google-free Open OS… It’s called Rankers NZ, it’s kind of the bible of camping sites around New Zealand, and it has no copycat or other app that could compete.
So I’ve tried the wiki Install every app on OpenOS. But I don’t really understand everything and it does not go the way the wiki says. So either I am doing something wrong or my phone is doing something wrong. I don’t know which, but either way, I really need some help !
So to get this app to work, I have tried everything as far as “Level 4: Tricking apps to work">“Hiding root with RootCloak”.
At that point, I tried to disable root, just in case, but it didn’t work, so I went on to try RootCloak. I installed Xposed downloader, went to the settings, chose sdk level 25, downloaded the newest entry, rebooted to recovery, and tried to install the downloaded file… which did not work. It gave me an error message (Zip signature verification failed - Error installing zip file ‘/sdcard/Download/xposed-v89-sdk25-arm.zip’), after a line saying “Skipping Digest check: no Digest file found”.
So here are stuff I don’t really understand and maybe made a mistake about :
- considering Open OS has been upgraded since you wrote the wiki (not on Android 5.1 or 6.0 anymore), I chose sdk level 25 (the lattest) instead of 22 or 23 (it was actually pre-chosen)
- I’m not sure what “reboot to recovery” means exactly, so I turned my phone of, and then while power on, I pressed volume up+power for 10 seconds; it took me to this weird mode that I don’t exactly know what it is, where I chose “Install” and then, went looking for the downloaded file; then I just ticked the “reboot after installed” box, and swiped to install.
Oh, and I read the few next steps, just in case, and it’s pretty much chinese to me…
So, after all this, can someone help me ? Has anybody had the same issue or does anybody understand what this means ? I’m kind of desperate because I really need that app. Please, help me !
Thank you for everything !
