Question about Google Mobile Services


#1

Why does Onyx not certify the devices with Google Mobile Services (GMS) so that all devices can have a valid play store, play service and play protect?
It would make a big difference for all markets except for the Chinese market and you only need to certify once per model.

2.0.1 and continuing Google Apps problems

I would be interested in feedback from Onzx concerning this as well (in particular for the Boox Note P). It seems weird to have the feature in the updates, but it being unusable and the error message suggesting I’m participating in a license violation. Maybe an open Appstore (FDroid/Amazon) would be a workable alternative, at least that would provide any appstore and not force the installation of apks from disreputable sources.
