How to root your android phone with magisk (so android pay and netflix work again)

How to root your android phone with magisk (so android pay and netflix work again)

Google yesterday released Android Pay in the USA and the service will soon expand to other parts of the world as it gains traction, but what must be a burning question for you, us and many other like-minded folks is “Does Android Pay works on a rooted device?”

Well, NO. Right now, Android Pay doesn’t officially work on rooted Android devices. However, it isn’t so rude like Samsung Pay that it won’t ever work on your device if you’ve ever rooted it.

Android Pay can work on Android devices that were previously rooted or have bootloader unlocked, but it won’t officially work on devices with active root access.

Google Wallet had similar restrictions for rooted Android devices, but then Google silently removed the restriction and made Google Wallet work alongside with root access on a device. This may happen to Android Pay as well. At some point in future when Google figures out a way to secure Android Pay from root access, and become really sure about it, it may lift the root restriction for the app.

So Android Pay doesn’t officially supports root access, but that doesn’t mean there’s no workaround. There are a few methods to get Android Pay work with Root.

Method 1: Systemless root workaround for Android Pay

Follow the instructions below to get Android Pay working with Systemless root, thanks to jgummeson for the tip:

  1. Format/Factory reset your device to stock firmware with no custom modifications.
  2. Root your device with systemless SuperSU.
  3. Enable USB debugging on your device:
    1. Go to Settings » About tablet » and tap Build number 7 times to enable Developer options.
    2. Go back to Settings » select Developer options » enable USB debugging.
  4. Setup ADB and Fastboot on your PC.
  5. Connect your device to PC.
    └ If a prompt appears on your device screen asking to allow USB debugging, select “Ok”.
  6. Open a command window on the PC and issue the following command:
    adb shell
    chmod 751 /su/bin
  7. That’s it. Android Pay should now be working with systemless root on your device.

What we did in the systemless root method above is turn off the SafetyNet checks detecting systemless root on the device. Hope it works for you. If not, try the other methods given below as well.

Method 2: Disable Root from SuperSU

As suggested by Turd Fergussen in comments, just disabling root from SuperSU also works:

  1. Open the SuperSU app on your device.
  2. Tap the Settings tab.
  3. Untick the “Enable Superuser” option.
  4. Open Android Pay and set up your cards.
  5. Go back to SuperSU app and tick the “Enable Superuser” option.

That’s it. You should be able to make payments now.

Method 3: Use RootCloak Xposed Module

You could use a Xposed module called RootCloak which cloaks your device’ root status, so you can cloak the Google Play Services app (which Android Pay uses) and hide the fact that your device is rooted. Below is a quick guide for the hack:

  1. Install Xposed Framework on your device.
  2. Install RootCloak Xposed Module and enable it in the Xposed installer app.
  3. Open RootCloak app from your launcher.
  4. Now as a first-time user of the app, open menu (tap 3 dot icon) and select the “Reset to Default Apps” option.
  5. Now if Google Play Services isn’t already in the list of default apps, add it using the + button.
  6. Either reboot your device or Force Close the Google Play Services app.
  7. Open the Android Pay app, it should now work on your rooted device.

Note: If you’re getting force closes while adding your credit or debit cards, you may have to toggle it On/Off repeatedly until you’ve added all of your cards. And finally leaving it On.

Note 2: You may want to use the latest Google Play Services app that released earlier today if things don’t work well.

Alternative Method (untested): Install “No Device Check” Xposed module.

Google introduced a new SafetyNet API recently, which helps app developers check if your device is rooted or modified by returning a “false” status so that their apps can adjust features accordingly.

The “No Device Check” Xposed module changes this behavior and always returns “true” status for your device’ compatibility so that apps think your device isn’t rooted or modified in any way, and thus enable all of its features for you.

This may also help us to use Android Pay on a rooted device. Give it a go and let us know if it fares well in the comments section below.

How to root your android phone with magisk (so android pay and netflix work again)

Gaining root access on Android devices isn’t a new concept, but the way it is done has changed with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The new “systemless” root method can be a bit confusing at first, so we’re here to help make sense of it all, why you’d want it, and why this method is the best way to root an Android phone moving forward.

What Exactly Is “Systemless” Root?

Before we get into what systemless root is, it’s probably best that we first talk about how rooting “normally” works on Android, and what’s required for it to do its job.

Since Android 4.3, the “su” daemon—the process that handles requests for root access—has to run at startup, and it has to do so with enough permissions to effectively perform the tasks requested of it. This was traditionally accomplished by modifying files found on Android’s /system partition. But in the early days of Lollipop, there was no way to launch the su daemon at boot, so a modified boot image was used—this was effectively the introduction of the “systemless” root, named such because it doesn’t modify any files in the /system partition.

A way to gain root access the traditional way on Lollipop was later found, which effectively halted progress on the systemless method at the time.

With the introduction of Marshmallow, however, Google strengthened the security that was first put in place in Lollipop, essentially making it unfeasible to launch the su daemon with the required permissions just by modifying the /system partition. The systemless method was resurrected, and that’s now the default rooting method for phones running Marshmallow. It’s also worth mentioning that this is also true for Android Nougat, as well as Samsung devices running 5.1 (or newer).

What Are the Advantages (and Disadvantages) of Systemless Root?

As with anything, there are advantages and disadvantages to gaining root access with the systemless method. The primary downside is that it doesn’t work on devices with locked bootloaders by default—there may be workarounds, but they’re very specific to each device. In other words, if there is no workaround for your device and it has a locked bootloader, there’s essentially no way of gaining root access.

Other than that, however, the systemless method is generally better. For example, it’s much easier to accept over-the-air (OTA) updates when you’re rooted using this method, especially when using a tool like FlashFire. FlashFire can flash stock firmwares and re-root them while flashing, as well as handle OTA installation (again, re-rooting it while flashing). Basically, if you’re running a rooted device, FlashFire is a good tool to have. Keep in mind that it’s currently still in beta, but development is making good progress.

The systemless root method is also much cleaner, since it doesn’t add or modify files in the /system partition. That means it’s much easier to unroot your phone, too. It doesn’t even survive a factory reset, so it’s much simpler to make sure devices are unrooted and wiped clean before selling them.

Of course, that last bit is a double-edged sword, as some users would prefer to stay rooted after factory resetting their device—the good news is that you need only re-flash the appropriate SuperSU file to re-gain root access, which is easy. And if you want to unroot without performing a factory reset, you can just flash a clean boot image for your device. One command prompt command and you’re done.

It’s also worth noting that there are certain services, like Android Pay, that simply won’t work on rooted devices. At one point, Pay did work on systemless devices, but this was completely accidental. There are currently no plans to try and bypass Pay’s protection on rooted devices.

So Which Method Should I Use?

How to root your android phone with magisk (so android pay and netflix work again)

The good news is, you don’t really have to “decide” which root method to use. When you flash SuperSU, it will decide which rooting method is best for your phone, and act accordingly. If your phone is running Lollipop or older, it will most likely use the /system method. If it’s running Marshmallow or newer (or if it’s a Samsung device running 5.1 or newer), it will modify your boot image instead, giving you a systemless root.

It’s unlikely that the systemless method will ever become backwards compatible for older versions of Android, as that would require a significant amount of work for dozens of devices that will either be upgraded to a newer version of Android or retired. Thus, the focus for this new method is being put on Android Marshmallow and Nougat.

Android is a complex system, and obtaining root access can open the door to unlocking its full potential. That said, rooting your device isn’t something you should take lightly—unless it’s a developer or other bootloader-unlockable unit with stock images available, you should definitely tread carefully. Developers in the rooting community are going to great length to provide the best rooting experience possible, but that doesn’t always mean it’s going to work perfectly.

  • I never relocke yet! I think Netflix issue is not associated with root!! marvel shows work on g7 HDR.. try youtube ,then decide!

    once you unlock bootloader u cant update via OTA , but using lg bridge u can update root/non-root!!

    Just use lg bridge to update—then magisk to root agian simple!! (in this case uninstall previous installed magisk manager and reinstall a fresh start)
    download .kdz file from the link/official then using lgup upgrade then magisk ..
    I think the Lg bridge is the best option.

    Once the bootloader is unlocked widewine certification will change to L3 which in turn doesn’t let videos from Netflix, Amazon, hotstar to play more than 480p. And HDR won’t work.
    However in all the phones relocking bootloader will bring back widewine to L1 again. But not in LG G7.

    YouTube doesn’t require this certification to play videos in HDR or 1440p.

  • I’m currently using my M8 unlocked/rooted with a custom ROM. I mainly use Root for wifi tethering on my unlimited plan for my son’s tablet if we are not at home on wifi. I have been kicking around the idea of getting either the HTC 10 or holding off for a little while for the new Nexus/Pixel phones. I’m also at a crossroad because I want to try and use Android Pay, but I can’t do that with anything that is rooted. So Android Pay or Root for Wifi tether. See my issue? Anyone know if its possible to get both of what I want?

    I like all the reviews I have seen for the HTC 10 here and other places, so I know I would be happy with it. But I don’t know if I would be better off getting the Nexus/Pixel for Stock Android. I would assume the wifi tether would work without all the Verizon block crap, and I could keep it stock unrooted for Android Pay.

    I know systemless root worked for a little while, but I thought Google closed that loophole. Can anyone shine some light on this?

  • Well as we all know the Trio products have little to no support on their website. so after alot of searching and digging around i finally found a way to root the stealth G2. now keep in mind this method has worked for me, and it MAY work for you im not sure just post your results here.

    these are the links i got my info from

    ALSO if anyone has found any quicker or better methods please feel free to post im only putting what i found worked for me

    Step 1 getting the stealth g2 to be recognized as android device

    Remember to keep the debug mode checked on your device
    The first thing i did was get adb working on it. for me the device never installed properly it would say TrioStealthG2 with an exclamation. what i did was download the adt bundle from,from their once it finished downloading i clicked on it, i clicked on sdk,then clicked on extras,then google, and finally android usb. once in the android usb directory click on android_winusb.inf. from here you want to add some lines under either x86 section or x64 section (youll see under those sections alot of other device names like the nexus with same lines under their name)that will allow your device to be recognized as an android device and not as the G2.Here are the lines

    %SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_16D5&PID_8005&MI_01
    %CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_16D5&PID_8005&MI_01

    We are not done yet though now we want to copy and paste your device id over the line ending in: USB\VID_16D5&PID_8005&MI_01, minimize the page and go to device manager. once their right click TrioStealthG2 or whatever the name is for you and go to properties then go to details and click on hardware id.copy the id it usually looks like the USB\VID_xxxx&PID_xxxx&MI_xx. once you finish copying your id go back to the android_winusb.inf file and now paste your id over those 2 lines i gave you. in the end it should look just like the lines i gave you, the only difference being that YOUR id is now pasted over instead of the one i gave sshould look similar to this: it won’t be exactly the same but similar.this is an example. You’ll see my lines added in there .(you can try to paste my line and see if it works if not just follow the instructions.)

    Save the file and exit now you want to go back to device manager and update the drivers on the trio. click on browse my computer for file and click on the directory the android_winusb.inf you saved is under. for me it was under the android usb folder so i clicked on android usb and thats it. it should update the drivers and tadah now you have an android device.

    Step 2: Actually rooting the phone One click method (this is not my method and you can download the program at

    this is the EASIEST part once you finish getting the computer to recognize your trio as an android device just go to the site i gave and download unlockpro the free download. thats it, yes its free it has the free version and paid version. free version works just as well. once installed just click root, let it do its thing and your set. you may want to download SuperSU from the play store and if it lets you download binary files your good to go. test it and post results ;D

    Manufacturers like Samsung and LG have added their own implementation of multi-window features to Android for years now, but with the release of version 6.0 Marshmallow, Google has finally gotten around to working the same feature into stock Android.

    The feature still has a few rough edges, so it’s hidden by default, and you’ll need root access to activate it. But by adding a single line of code to your build.prop file, you can now use multi-window mode with any app on Android, so you can multitask like a pro with true split-screen views.


    • Android 6.0 Marshmallow
    • Rooted device
    • Root-enabled file browser with support for text editing or JRummy’s dedicated Build Prop Editor

    Step 1: Modify Your build.prop File

    First up, open your favorite root-enabled file browser with text editing capabilities, then navigate to the root partition of your device, which is the highest folder you can get to in the folder tree. From here, open the system folder, then make sure to mount it as “read/write” so that you can make changes to the files it contains.

    Next, scroll to the bottom of this folder and long-press the build.prop file. From here, choose “Open With,” then select “Text Editor” or a similar entry in your root-enabled file browser.

    Once you’ve got the build.prop file opened in a text editor, scroll down to the very bottom of the list and hit enter on your keyboard to add a new line. From here copy the following line of code, then paste it into the bottom of your build.prop file:

    • persist.sys.debug.multi_window=true

    Step 2: Save Changes & Reboot

    After adding the line that enables multi-window mode on Marshmallow, tap the three-dot menu button at the top of your text editor and choose “Save.” From here, simply reboot your phone to make the changes become active.

    Step 3: Use Marshmallow’s Multi-Window Mode

    Once you get back up, you’ll be ready to use Marshmallow’s multi-window feature. To begin, open your recent apps menu, then you’ll notice a new button directly to the left of the “X” in each of the app title bars.

    Tap this button, then you’ll be asked to choose the multi-window layout for this app. The first option makes the app occupy the top half of your screen, the second option puts it in the bottom half, and the third bumps the app back into full screen mode.

    For now, the second app in your split-screen view is automatically selected, meaning after you choose a layout for your first split-screen app, the other half of the window is populated by the adjacent entry in your recent apps menu. If you’d like to change the secondary app, open the recent apps menu and swipe it away, then the next app will be used instead.

    Multi-window mode works in either landscape or portrait mode, and each app can be controlled as you would expect. Currently, there is no way to resize the two windows, but it’s still quite useful as it is.

    If you’ve used an Android device, you’ve most likely heard the word APK in many events. Think about an APK as Windows’ executable documents, except it’s for Android. It’s an approach to introduce an application on your Android device and has demonstrated to be very helpful with the goal that you can avoid the line and get another update quicker or even download an unreleased application.

As in the Windows system, we use the .exe file, the same as in the Android system, to install an application. Most of the android users are not familiar with the term because they use the Play Store to install an application where the term is not available. If you want to use your favorite application in your device, then the APK file of the particular application is your key to use the application.

  • In this tutorial we show how to do function tracing on your Android device.

    Setting up your Android device

    Before you start, you will need to root your device in case you haven’t done so already. It is technically also possible to use Frida without rooting your device, for example by repackaging the app to include frida-gadget, or using a debugger to accomplish the same. But, for this introduction we’re going to focus on the simplest case: a rooted device.

    Also note that most of our recent testing has been taking place on a Pixel 3 running Android 9. Older ROMs may work too, but if you’re running into basic issues like Frida crashing the system when launching an app, this is due to ROM-specific quirks. We cannot test on all possible devices, so we count on your help to improve on this. However if you’re just starting out with Frida it is strongly recommended to go for a Pixel or Nexus device running the latest official software, or a device whose software is as close to AOSP as possible. Another option is using an emulator, ideally with a Google-provided Android 9 emulator image for arm or arm64. (x86 may work too but has gone through significantly less testing.)

    You will also need the adb tool from the Android SDK.

    First off, download the latest frida-server for Android from our releases page and uncompress it.

    Now, let’s get it running on your device:

    For the last step, make sure you start frida-server as root, i.e. if you are doing this on a rooted device, you might need to su and run it from that shell.

    adb on a production build

    If you get adbd cannot run as root in production builds after running adb root
    you need to prefix each shell command with su -c . For example: adb shell “su -c chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/frida-server”

    Next, make sure adb can see your device:

    This will also ensure that the adb daemon is running on your desktop, which allows Frida to discover and communicate with your device regardless of whether you’ve got it hooked up through USB or WiFi.

    A quick smoke-test

    Now, on your desktop it’s time to make sure the basics are working. Run:

    This should give you a process list along the lines of:

    Great, we’re good to go then!

    Tracing open() calls in Chrome

    Alright, let’s have some fun. Fire up the Chrome app on your device and return to your desktop and run:

    Now just play around with the Chrome app and you should start seeing open() calls flying in:

    You can now live-edit the aforementioned JavaScript files as you read man open , and start diving deeper and deeper into your Android apps.

    Download and Install AOSP Android 8.1 Oreo on Motorola Moto E5 (GSI): This is an unofficial build available for Motorola Moto E5. The ROM is based on Android 8.1 Oreo source code. It is compatible with any project treble hardware. So if your device supports project treble, then you are good to go. The Custom ROM is maintained by phhusson. If you want to know more about AOSP Android 8.1 Oreo For Motorola Moto E5, just Visit this XDA Thread

    This ROM is a Generic System image File which is commonly known as GSI. This can be installed on any Treble-enabled device. Previously users have to wait for the ROM to come to their device but now things have changed. If you have a treble-enabled device, you can flash the file to enjoy the new features of Android 8.1 Oreo.

    The Android 8.1 Oreo is fairly a new version of the Google labs. With the release of new Android 8.1 Oreo, the parallel thing that happens is the development of the Custom ROM which essentially acts as a wrapper to the underlying Android version. The Official AOSPExtended Oreo on Motorola Moto E5 based on Android 8.1 Oreo is packed with new Wallpaper Themes, AutoFill, Redesigned Power Menu, Adaptive Icons, Picture -In- Picture Mode, Google Play Protect and 2X Boot Time, new Shutdown and boot Animation, Pixel 2 Launcher, Round Statusbar Icons, and Settings. Follow the below step by step guide to install AOSP ROM on Motorola Moto E5 (Android 8.1 Oreo).

    Quick, if you’re a root user, grab this. I use it to cross check CTS and SafetyNet checks when I’m building Recovery projects, with Magisk Manager.

    It’s low profile – no bs type of app (comparing to super booost 2017 clean pro like bbqpizza booster turbo apps), and the free version is near ad free.

    Sounds pretty useless?

    Magisk has built in SafetyNet checking and to check for root simply fireup a terminal and ender ‘su’.

    I use it to cross check Magisk for CTS. 13.1 added the CTS profile and an Integrity check, which wasn’t available on 12.0

    I was making do with their free app ‘SafetyNet Checker’

    But is now. So again, this is pointless.

    That’s why I never bought it, because I was making do with their free app ‘SafetyNet Checker’

    Install a free app that requires root and see if SuperSU prompts for permission ?

    no its the middle section of the apps that would be of interest to pokemon players wanting to hack their way to be a pokemon master… sec screenie

    Lol you’ve lost me, how is a root checking app meant to do that?

    You open up your map spoofing app because clearly you’re already rooted the phone then check your actual maps apps to see if it’s working ?

    no, I didn’t even mention root check aside from the title. it’s the CTS check that’s worth adding if you need to have builds that need to pass the verity and cts checks Google has..

    edit: no, pokemon changed so you cant spoof. I don’t play it, I just read the fallout at XDA.

    This is more useful as a CTS Integrity checker. All Root checkers are useless.. same with busybox checkers. CTS is different. Google has a hash of what your device should be from the manufacturer, if you root, your hash changes. Magisk Manager can change properties that trick the checks so Android Pay will still work, and other banking or higher SELinux apps checks

    Think of it more as a way to check if your tools designed to beat Android Security is beating Android Security, on a tampered device.. that Google now can’t tell if it’s been tampered with

    – Add the Play Stp if your Android device doesn’t have access to Google Play Services by default?

    (Pocket-lint) – You need the Google Play Store if you want to install most apps on an Android device. But what if your Android device doesn’t have access to Google Play Services by default?

    It’s actually not a huge amount of bother to add the Play Store yourself if you have an Android phone or tablet without the Google Play Store. We’ll show you how in this very feature – and we’ll also show you how to install the Play Store on an Amazon Fire tablet, too.

    On an Android phone or tablet

    1. For older versions of Android – before Android 8 Oreo so Android 7 Nougat and earlier – you need to go to your Settings menu. Find the option for Security or Lock screen and security (Samsung) or similar. Within that menu there should be an option to enable Unkown sources. In stock Android this is below a Device administration heading.

    So toggle this on, then you’ll get a warning prompt. Tap OK.

    In Android 8 Oreo and higher the process has changed. Instead, such permissions are now granted on an app-by-app basis, so we’ll deal with what you need to do in a second.

    2. The next step is to download the APK – or installer package – of the Play Store. This is the equivalent of an app installer you’d download on a PC or Mac.

    APK Mirror is a reliable source and safe to download from. Download the latest version of the Play Store from this link. Should you be looking to reinstall an earlier version instead, you can get previous versions, too.

    3. Now open the installer package – you might need to browse to it in your Files app to find your Downloads folder if you don’t know where it has downloaded to.

    On older devices where you have enabled the Unkown sources option, the Play Store will install. You’ll then be able to find it in your apps drawer or on one of your home screens depending on which type of Android phone you are using.

    4. On newer devices, you’ll be prompted to allow the app you’re downloading the APK with to install unknown apps. Usually, this will be your browser asking for this permission so usually it will be Chrome. So toggle the option on when shown, then tap install when the Play Store prompt appears. Again, the APK will then install the Play Store app.

    You may get a warning saying “this type of file can harm your device” but you can ignore it.

    5. Open the Play Store – you might find it needs to download updates – and then you can browse and install other apps on your Android device.

    6. You can revoke the permission you granted in step 4 easily should you want to – just go into that particular app’s settings in Settings > Apps > Special app access and tap Install unknown apps to toggle it off.

    On an Amazon Fire tablet

    Amazon’s Fire OS devices are designed specifically for Amazon’s content and apps – they don’t have the Google Play Store or any other Google apps like Google Maps. But they are based on a forked version of Android so can also have the Play Store installed.

    1. Go into Settings > Security and enable Apps from Unknown Sources. This is the equivalent of step 1 above.

    2. Next you need to download these files. They’ll go into the Docs > LocalStorage tab > Download folder.

    3. Now tap to install each one in order. You’ll now have the Play Store on your device so you can sign in using your Google account and install apps.

    This article will show you how to install a fully functioning Ubuntu Linux operating system (OS) on your mobile phone. The first method we will describe requires you to root your device.

    How to root your android phone with magisk (so android pay and netflix work again)

    What Is Root?

    Android phones use Linux file-system ownership and permissions. The root is the superuser.

    When you log into your device, there are certain functions you can perform on your phone based on user permissions. The root user or superuser has permissions to do anything to any file such as uninstall an application.

    Before you can grant yourself superuser permissions, you must unlock the bootloader and install a custom recovery.

    Rooting your device adds a standard Linux function that was removed by placing a small file su (switch user) with permissions in the system.

    How to root your android phone with magisk (so android pay and netflix work again)

    When you run a file without any other parameters, your permissions and credentials are switched from a regular user to a superuser with complete control.

    Use Apps to Root Your Android Device

    For this method, you will need to install three apps from the Google Play Store.


    BusyBox gives your phone access to Linux commands that you wouldn’t typically have. It is necessary to enable many root apps to work.

    How to root your android phone with magisk (so android pay and netflix work again)

    Linux Deploy

    Linux Deploy is an open-source program used to easily and quickly install Linux OS on your Android mobile phone.

    How to root your android phone with magisk (so android pay and netflix work again)

    It works by creating a disk image on a flashcard, mounting it, and installing an OS distribution.

    Open the app to make sure you have root access (you should after installing BusyBox). Click the download button on the top or bottom right-hand side of your screen.

    How to root your android phone with magisk (so android pay and netflix work again)

    • You will now see the options menu. Leave most of the settings as the default. Under Properties: Linux, select your distribution.
    • Change the flavor of Linux by selecting an option from the Distribution suite.
    • Select the desktop you want under Desktop environment to change the look and feel of the app.
    • Under the GUI setting, tick off Enable to ensure your device will have a graphical interface. Go into the GUI settings to change options such as the screen resolution.
    • Under Properties, give yourself superuser privileged access by setting your Username to root.

    To open the menu, click the three dots at the top right-hand side of your screen. Select Install and click OK to start installing the app on your phone.

    The process takes a little time as it is installing the entire Linux distribution on your Android device.

    After the installation is complete, click START to open fruit (a sub-compartment), then hit STOP when finished.

    VNC Viewer

    The final app to install is VNC Viewer. It will turn your Android device into a remote desktop and allow you to view the GUI.

    How to root your android phone with magisk (so android pay and netflix work again)

    Install a Linux OS On Your Android Mobile Phone With UserLAnd

    Another way to install a Linux OS on your Android mobile phone is to use the UserLAnd app. With this method, there is no need to root your device.

    How to root your android phone with magisk (so android pay and netflix work again)

    For the most part, new features for Google Maps, such as Live View augmented reality walking navigation, come to Android first.

    One exception is changing your vehicle icon in driving navigation, which is now coming to Android after debuting on iPhones and iPads.

    On both versions, however, the ability to choose your navigation icon is not very obvious. Here’s how to do it.

    Step 1: Update Google Maps

    Google Maps for iOS has had this feature already, so you shouldn’t need to update your app. However, this is new for Android. In fact, as of this writing, the official support page for this feature says it is not available for Android. So, Android users will want to go ahead and make sure their apps are updated.

    • Install Google Maps: Android (free) | iOS (free)

    Step 2: Navigate to a Location

    Open Google Maps and use the search bar to find a destination for navigation. If you don’t have a place in mind, you can also use Explore to discover a nearby location.

    In the location’s information page, tap the Start button to begin navigation. Or, tap the Directions button if you need to make adjustments to your trip, such as adding stops, choosing routes, or selecting transportation mode (you’ll want to make sure driving directions are selected to change your icon) before tapping Start to begin navigation.

    Step 3: Change the Icon

    Once you’ve begun navigation but before you’ve started driving, tap the blue dot that represents you and your vehicle. This will pull up the available options. Aside from the default blue arrow, you can be a red sedan, a yellow SUV, or a green truck. Sure, the pickings are slim (there’s no Batmobile like in Waze, for instance), but, if you’re bored with the blue arrow, it’s something.

    This guide teaches developers how to set up their workstations in order to use Samsung Mobile SDKs in their apps. It covers basic topics such as how to download and install the SDK.

    This section covers:

    1. System Requirements.
    2. Downloading Samsung Mobile SDKs.
    3. Getting started with Android Studio.

    1. System Requirements

    To develop apps for Samsung mobile devices, you must first set up your Android development environment. If your development environment is already configured, you can skip this section.

    1. Verify that your development system meets the requirements specified by the Android System Requirements.
    2. Set up your Java environment:

    To develop Android apps in Java, you need the following:

    • Java Development Kit (JDK) — this provides the tools required to build a Java app.
    • Java Runtime Environment (JRE) — this lets you run Java apps on your computer.

    To set up these components: 1. Go to Java SE Downloads. 2. Click Java Download to display the download page for the latest version of JDK, which includes JRE. 3. Click the download package for your operating system: Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux. 4. Install the JDK package. For details about the installation, see the Java Platform Installation.

    1. Download Android Studio:
      1. Go to Android Studio.
      2. If the browser has detected your operating system, click Download Android Studio. Otherwise, click Download Options and select a different platform: Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux.
      3. Unzip and install the bundle. It includes essential components and the Studio IDE.
      4. Launch Android Studio.
      5. If you get a notice of Platform and Plugin Updates, click update to exit Studio and launch the SDK Manager. Then install the suggested packages.

    2. Downloading Samsung SDKs

    Downloading SDKs from Samsung Developers:

    1. Go to Mobile page
    2. Select the SDK you want to download
    3. Go to the Resources page for the SDK
    4. Click the download button
    5. Read the license agreement, select I agree to this SDK License Agreement and click Download
    6. Unzip the downloaded SDK to a folder of your choice. The SDKs typically provide the following folders
      • Docs: Programming guides and API references
      • Libs: Java and C libraries to use in your app
      • Samples: Sample apps showing example source code
      • Tools: Additional tools that may be needed to use the SDK
      • Extras: Additional support resources

    3. Getting started with Android Studio

    This section describes how to create your first project in Android Studio and run an app.

    Creating an Android Studio project

    1. Launch Android Studio.
    2. Create a new project by clicking File > New Project
    3. Fill out the fields:
      • Application name: your app name
      • Company domain: the qualifier for your app package name.
      • Package name: this is the combination of the company domain and application name, which must be unique across all packages in the Android environment. Android generates this from the application name and company domain values.
      • Project Location: the directory where your app is stored. You can use the default or specify another location, if desired.
    4. Click Next
    5. Select the type of device you want to target, for example, Phone and Tablet
    6. Select the Minimum SDK level you need to support the SDKs you’re using. In this example, select API 21. Click Next
    7. Use the default Empty Activity type and click Next. For more about activities, see Android Activities.
    8. Use the default Activity Name and Layout Name and click Finish For more about creating a project in Android Studio, see Creating Projects.

    Adding a Samsung library to Android Studio

    To use a Samsung SDK in your app, you add the library files that are bundled with the SDK to your Android Studio project.

    1. Open your project in Android Studio.
    2. Use a file browser to navigate to the folder containing the Samsung SDK
    3. Open the add-on SDK folder, then open:
      • Docs > API Reference > index.html: to see what libraries and API methods are provided by the SDK
      • Libs folder: to copy the libraries you want to use in your app
    4. In your Android Studio project, top-left drop-down menu, change the Android view to Project
    5. Right-click your app’s libs directory and select Paste
    6. In the Copy dialog, click OK to paste the copied files into your project
    7. The libraries now appear in your project under the libs folder
    8. Right-click the libraries and select Add As Library.
    9. Select the module to add the library to. If your app contains several modules, ensure that you add the library to the appropriate module. Click OK. Your project now includes the SDK you downloaded.

    Running the App

    Android Studio provides two ways to compile and test your app: – On an Android Virtual Device (AVD) – On a physical Samsung device To run your app:

    1. Plug your Samsung mobile device into your computer using a USB cable
    2. If you are using a Windows computer, go to Samsung Android USB Driver for Windows, then download and install the USB driver onto your computer
    3. Enable developer options on your device by going to Settings > About device > Software info and tapping Build number seven times. (Devices with Android 4.1 or older already have developer options displayed by default.)
    4. Turn on USB debugging by tapping Settings > Developer options > USB debugging

    If My Knox is installed, USB debugging is grayed out; try using another device.

    1. In Android Studio, with your project open, click Run > Run ‘app’ (or press Shift + F10)
    2. Select the device you want run the app on, under either Connected Devices or Available Emulators

    Running a sample app

    The sample apps are in the Samples folder of the SDK you downloaded. To run a sample app:

    1. Open Android Studio
    2. In the top navigation menu, select File > Open
    3. Navigate to the sample app directory in the SDK you downloaded
    4. Click OK to import the file to your project

    A free and open-source operating system for various devices, based on the Android mobile platform.

    Latest review

    Have you encrypted your Android device? If so, congratulations, you are one of the small number who do. Feel free to leave class early. But if your Android smartphone or tablet isn’t encrypted – and estimates out there claim that fewer than 10 percent of the 1.4 billion or so Android devices out in the wild are encrypted – then here’s how you go about securing your data.

    All you need to encrypt your Android smartphone or tablet is time (it can take a couple of hours, so make sure your battery is fully charged or your device is connected to the charger). You don’t need to root the device, and you don’t need to buy or download any software.

    I’m going to assume here that you’re running Android 5.0 or later. Anything older and you really should consider upgrading your operating system or hardware. Also note that most devices that are shipping with Android 6.0 have mandatory full-device encryption.

    • First, back up your data. I’ve done this process many times and never had a problem, but if things go bad, and all your favorite cat videos end up gone, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
    • Go to Settings >Lock Screen >Screen Lock > [input your current password] >Password and create a strong password. Do I need to remind you of the importance of remembering this password?
    • Next go to Settings >System >Security >Encrypt device and select Encrypt phone (or, if you’re doing this on a tablet, Encrypt tablet). You will be asked to confirm your password again.
    • Sit back and wait for the encryption process to complete. I’ve seen this take anything between 45 minutes and a couple of hours.

    That’s it. Are there drawbacks? I can think of a few of small ones:

    • There could be a performance hit, especially on older devices.
    • The only way to roll back encryption is to wipe the device.
    • You have to enter your password on each reboot and to unlock the device, and you lose the convenience of pattern and PIN unlock. That said, more modern devices with a fingerprint reader can still use that as an unlock mechanism.

    If your device uses an external SD card, you can encrypt that too. Just go to Settings > System > Security > Encrypt external SD card > Enable and follow the prompts. This not only encrypts the contents of the SD card, but it also means that the card cannot be used on another device unless it is wiped.

    How to root your android phone with magisk (so android pay and netflix work again)

    So Android L 5.0 is officially called Lollipop. That’s not the name I would have picked but then again, I don’t work for Google. Thankfully, there’s a lot to look forward to in Lollipop. Including a whole new design language, much faster performance, and the promise of smooth scrolling (finally).

    But this is Android. Lollipop is out now for Nexus devices and should be available soon for Motorola and the higher end HTC phones. But that still leaves out hundreds of Android handsets. You’re basically left to the mercy of the manufacturer or your carrier when it comes to updates.

    So while you probably can’t yet bask in the glory of all things Lollipop, there’s a way to fake it. Hey, fake it till you make it, right? Lollipop is a visual change. And if the look is what you’re after, you can get it by changing the launcher, icons, fonts, boot animation and the keyboard. Some of that stuff requires you to be rooted but if you’re here, I assume you’re already rooted and ready to go.

    1. Lollipop Keyboard (No Root Required)

    How to root your android phone with magisk (so android pay and netflix work again)

    This is the easiest one to install. The Lollipop keyboard doesn’t require you to flash a zip. It’s just an APK that can be installed as long has you have Unknown Sources enabled from Privacy section in Settings.

    Download the APK and install it. Open the app and follow the tutorial to enable the keyboard. The important part is to go to the Lollipop Keyboard app after it’s enabled and switch to Material Design Light/Dark theme from the Appearance or else the keyboard is just going to look like the pre-Lollipop update.

    2. Download And Set Up The Wallpapers

    How to root your android phone with magisk (so android pay and netflix work again)

    With a new release of Android comes sweet new wallpapers. Check out all the available Lollipop wallpapers here.

    3. Get The Android 5.0 Camera APK

    Android Lollipop’s Camera app looks and works much like the Google Camera app we’ve talked about before. It’s also available as a downloadable APK file. While root access is not necessary to use the app, users are reporting frequent crashes on non-rooted devices.

    4. Google Now Launcher 5.0 (Root Needed)

    If you’ve been using the Google Now Launcher on your phone, this won’t be a big change for you. Download the zip file and flash it via the recovery of your choice.

    After flashing the zip I did get the updated launcher with the new white Google Search bar but it seemed buggy. Also, the sweet new icons from Lollipop were not included in the package. Multiple mirrors for the updated Google Now Launcher are available here.

    5. Google Play Store 5.0

    The Google Play Store has been updated to version 5.0 with a flat look and material design. If you’ve not received the update yet, download the APK from here.

    6. Try The New Roboto Fonts

    Related: If you’re rooted, here’s an easy way to install hundreds of free fonts on your Android system.

    The Roboto font in Lollipop got a slight update. It’s a bit sharper now. While the differences are not immediately clear, the subtle upgrades make the new fonts much better to read. Download the flashable zip from here.

    When Do You Think Your Device Will Get The Lollipop Update?

    Let’s play the classic Android update game. Guess how long it will take for your phone to get the Lollipop update in the comments below.

    Open source features make Android more vulnerable to malware harassment, coupled with the Internet privacy environment itself is already very serious, so Android users should pay attention to equipment safety. Android in the smart phone market share is very high, has a rich selection of models. For Android users how to manage device security, protect their privacy. Here are several effective ways, we may wish to refer to:
    Use the screen lock
    Do not ignore the most basic screen lock function, although this is the most basic security measures, but simple and effective. According to survey data show that 34% of Android users do not set the screen lock, which is obviously a very big security risk. Although malware, backdoor great harm, but do not ignore the most basic security measures, because if the phone is stolen, at least the user information will not be easily leaked. Set the screen lock is very simple, and each Android phone support, as long as the settings – security – screen lock project can be.
    In addition, the need to pay attention to set the password to use strong passwords, simply do not set “123456” or “password” this simple law of weak passwords, refer to some websites or account registration password rules, the password contains irregular numbers , Uppercase letters and lowercase letters, at least 8 characters, is relatively safe.

    Screen lock is only a very basic protection measures, if you want to make local data more secure, may wish to use more sophisticated encryption. Android itself already provides data encryption, support for mobile storage and external storage, if you want to encrypt the data on the micro SD card, you need to spend some time. Encrypted data only need to enter the Settings – Security menu, select the relevant option.

    Android Device Manager

    Android also has similar iPhone “find my iPhone” feature, this feature can be bound to the device and Google account (or mobile phone manufacturers own account), in the case of mobile Internet access, you can manage through the site, including viewing geography Location, lock or delete data in the case of lost mobile phones can play a role.

    Use Android VPN

    Using a public WIFI network in public places poses a risk that exposes the device to an insecure network environment and is hacked and tracked. Effective way to solve this problem is to use the VPN the Android , the device IP does not directly connect to the network, but first connect the terminal server, which means that in the same public network devices you can not get real information for network intrusion protection is a certain effect, currently on the market of high-profile easy to use Android VPN should be: FlyVPN, use interested can search.

    Use encrypted communication services

    Many Internet communication software provides a better data encryption mechanism, such as Skype, use them to send Internet messages is relatively safe. As for non-network messages, you can download some encryption software to achieve a more secure send and receive.

    Learn about app permissions

    Early Android garbage or Trojan applications, is not perfect through the application of the mechanism of authority, resident in the background for espionage, such as a flashlight applications need information and Internet permissions, is undoubtedly very unreasonable. Although this situation has improved, but still have to be careful with some ulterior motives of the application, so download and install applications, we should try to select a reliable application store, and carefully check the installation permissions. In addition, if you feel the phone is no reason to slow down or often pop-up spam push, you can enter the Settings – Application – Permissions project to troubleshoot.

    Antivirus and protection applications

    If you often download some applications from the Internet, then install antivirus and protection applications is still very necessary. At present, Android field has a lot of security software, you can achieve virus killing, garbage and Trojan horse application troubleshooting and other functions to ensure the safety of equipment.

    After successful root of device. Now, I need to make device always in wake state i.e. always visibility of UI and no black screen or any daydream screens. To do so I think I’ve to accomplish following :

    1. No lock screen – turned off
    2. Sleep set to “never”
    3. Daydream set to “off”

    What I found is all about application layer i.e. there are some applications which can do above tasks. But since my mobile is rooted I want to achieve with system files so that even if some other applications try to change above functionalities then they should not be able to do so.

    How to root your android phone with magisk (so android pay and netflix work again)

    7 Answers 7

    1. Activate developer mode
    2. go to Developer options
    3. turn on “Stay awake”

    How to root your android phone with magisk (so android pay and netflix work again)

    Your main use case appears to be as follows (from your question)

    Even if some other applications try to change above functionalities then they should not be able to do so

    You can write a system service to trigger the PowerManager.WakeLock at regular intervals. (Source)

    To optimize the service you can also try setting the screen timeout the the maximum possible again at regular intervals so that even if changed manually it gets reset. (not sure how much max is allowed, you’ll need to check with trial and error)

    How to root your android phone with magisk (so android pay and netflix work again)

    I think you will need to modify the framework. Build framework.jar and push it to the device.

    Other alternative I can think of is using some MDM(Mobile device management) solution from Airwatch/SOTI/SAP Afaria which have privilege APIs to control the device.

    How to root your android phone with magisk (so android pay and netflix work again)

    Ok So after reading your question carefully, I found that you are not looking for any programmatic solution. You don’t want to install an app to do that what you want is to modify the system file to achieve this functionality automatically.

    Basically you want to modify the file who is exposing its methods to other apps by PowerManager class to control the sleep time and wake lock. Two things you need to know here:

    1. The system file you are looking for is available in jar format not in text or any other form.
    2. If somehow you will locate that file and start playing with that then you would end up breaking the compiled version of Android framework and your phone may misbehave after that.

    Conclusion I understand you want to do something tricky by doing this but unfortunately it can’t be done this way and even if you do so by playing with that file then all operations of your phone handled by PowerManager class will start playing with you. 🙂

    China gets all the cool smartphones, but should you try importing one?

    In the last few years, we’ve witnessed a big change to the way the smartphone market works. China has become both the biggest smartphone market on Earth and home to some of the most interesting smartphone companies. Lately, all the cool and crazy smartphones seem to be launching in China first and then maybe (or sometimes never) in the rest of the world. This includes devices like the all-screen Oppo Find X with its crazy motorized pop-up camera. Earlier, you might have had an eye on the original Xiaomi Mi Mix, the phone that kicked off the slim-bezel smartphone craze.

    With the United States often taking a backseat in the worldwide smartphone market, you might be tempted to import one of these exotic foreign smartphones. You can almost always do it—either through a random Chinese smartphone site or sometimes even on The question is, though, should you? Importing a smartphone will result in a number of challenges, so there are a few things to think about.

    Connectivity issues

    The biggest problem you’ll run into is with cellular connectivity, where a foreign phone might not work on your local cellular network. Each carrier has a set of LTE bands that it operates in, and while phones sold in the US are usually careful to hit the right carrier bands, Chinese smartphones might either not work on your carrier at all or work with reduced connectivity. Droid Life has a nice cheat sheet here for US networks, and you’ll need to compare that to the spec sheet of each individual phone. The general answer is that you have a chance with GSM carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile, and Verizon is getting better thanks to VoLTE (Voice over LTE) which removes the need for CDMA. You’ll have a much harder time with Sprint.

    Some Chinese OEMs like Xiaomi and Oppo are moving into Europe, which means wider LTE compatibility and a better chance of US compatibility, so things are getting better. Also keep in mind that phones can have variants for different regions, so make sure the version you’re buying has the bands you need.

    If you’re really desperate, the phone you want should work on Wi-Fi no matter what, which means it should work at home or at the office. That also means just carrying around a hotspot is an option, too.

    The Play Store and bootloader barriers

    How to root your android phone with magisk (so android pay and netflix work again)

    Getting the Play Store to work on a non-Google build of Android is tough. Downloading the requisite Google apps to a PC is easy— maintains an up-to-date package of the latest Google apps for download, available in various flavors for every combination of CPU architecture and Android version out there. The problem is installing them on a phone. Some of Google’s apps need system-level permissions to work, so they need to be installed as system apps, which normally a user isn’t allowed to do. Your Chinese Android phone will need an “unlockable bootloader,” which is basically an on/off switch giving you full control over the phone software. With an unlocked bootloader, you can boot into a recovery mode and modify the phone so that you can get system-level permissions and install the Google apps you need.

    Whether or not your phone has an unlockable bootloader can be hard to even figure out. It’s usually not on the spec sheet, so you’ll need to hope someone technical has posted the information on the Internet somewhere. A good place to check is the XDA Forums, which are meticulously broken down by individual phone model. Just search for your particular phone and see if other people are making progress on modding or unlocking the bootloader and/or rooting the phone.

    Chinese companies have been pretty good in the past at providing unlocked bootloaders, but lately they’ve been throwing up barriers due to security concerns. As we experienced firsthand when we imported the Xiaomi Redmi 3, smartphone retailers aren’t necessarily trustworthy. In our case, the reseller opened our device, unlocked the bootloader, flashed the Google apps to the system partition, put the phone back in the box, and sold it to us as unopened and “new.” At least, we hope that’s all they did.

    What is the current version of Android? Well, soon enough it’ll be Android 13 – Google’s operating system update over Android 12 – which is currently available in beta, with the full release to follow autumn/fall 2022.

    Google I/O, the search giant’s annual keynote and developer’s conference, kicked off on 11th May 2022, adding a little more flavour to the mobile operating system’s picture in terms of what we can expect: from features, through to which phones will be getting Android 13 at launch.

    Android 13 will be pre-installed on the Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro devices, as they’re always the first over the line with the latest software in tow, expected to arrive around October 2022.

    Here are the key Android 13 features to expect and what they’ll mean for your Android phone following the future update:

    1: ‘Hand-off’

    As partially detailed at Google I/O 2022’s opening keynote, Google is set to expand the continuity of use across its devices. Apple already does this for its ecosystem, so it’s an obvious feature to build into Android 13. This will include being able to quickly share files between products, such as copy something on your phone and paste it into your tablet.

    There’s also incoming Fast Pair expansion, which will allow hand-off between devices – say you’re listening to music in your car via Android Auto, you can then switch that to your headphones instantly for your onward journey, and finish up with your home speaker or other audio device. It’s thought that Google may open Fast Pair up to wider third-parties too.

    2: New Themes

    This one has long been known, when Android’s VP Engineering dropped a blog post about Android 13’s incoming goodies.

    The key take-away here, as you can see from the picture above from said blog, is that Android 13 will bring dynamic icons to all apps, not just Google’s own. That’ll help cease any conflict and give more incentive to actually use broader themes (with that caveat that developers have to offer a compatible app icon for it to work).

    It’s not a mahoosive update by any means, but Android’s design always ebbs and flows from one visual theme to the next with each release – and this looks nice and tidy.

    3: New Media Controls

    It might sound small, but it’s kinda fun: Google’s media control shows as an animated waveform during playback, bouncing along with what’s playing, for a more visually interactive interface whether within Android or on the lock screen. Google has slowly but surely been improving individual audio playback controls, this just helps dress that up into a more contemporary look – artwork included, too.

    4: Improved Privacy

    You might not think about it all the time, which is part of the point, but privacy and security is a big deal. Android 13 will step things up a notch by being more modular in its approach: for example, there’ll be a new photo picker to share individual photos with specific apps, rather than permitting full Gallery access.

    Sometimes it’s the stuff that you can’t see that’s most important though, which is where RCS comes into play. This stands for Rich Communication Services, a more secure and step-up replacement for SMS/MMS text and picture messaging. Once Google has got others on board, it’ll open out Google Chat in a more secure format for all.

    5: Designed for tablets

    Android hasn’t been quite as dreamy on bigger screens over the course of time, but Android 13 looks to update how it adapts for devices such as tablets.

    This means the notifications shade will get wider, there’ll be a better app bar at the bottom of the screen, and improved dual/multi app experiences.

    This will include all Google’s native apps, which will have big-screen specific layouts, such as Messages with a multi-column view. Third-party apps are invited too, with some bigger ones, such as Facebook, TikTok, and others, set to bring improvements.

    Bonus: New Google Wallet

    Okay, so this isn’t explicitly an Android 13 update, it’s a Google app update that’ll likely land ahead of the full-fat operating system upgrade.

    Google Wallet has, of course, been around for a long time as a great place to store your payment cards. The new Google Wallet goes even further: Google is proposing ID cards will be valid and stored virtually, beginning with Student ID in the USA, but international reach is expected.

    There’s also virtual credit card numbers incoming, which will put an end to your clearly visible card number, the aim being to cut down on fraud and connect the card very much to your own account only.

    Android 13 update: Summary

    You might’ve read all the way down to here and be thinking, “wait, what, that’s it?” Fraid so. Android 13 is more a behind-the-scenes tweaks update to the operating system, paired with a handful of visual changes. But it’s not going to fundamentally change your life – and that’s just fine. At least it looks nice. Plus it’s an excuse to get excited about the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro.

    Which phones will get Android 13 first?

    In addition to the Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, Google’s of other Pixel devices will also be supported, presumably at the same time as above or very soon after, which comprises the list below. In addition there will be other brands that will receive the software update, with Samsung typically high up that list in terms of speed, although these are yet to be confirmed.

    • Google Pixel 6 Pro
    • Google Pixel 6
    • Google Pixel 6a

    It makes more sense than ever to put some Android apps on you laptop. As well as giving you access to apps that have no desktop or web equivalent (like Snapchat ), it’s great for playing games on the big screen—we got Alto’s Adventure up and running on the Pixelbook with no problems, and plenty of other games would benefit from the extra screen space too.

    It’s also a boon for apps that can make proper use of a keyboard, like Word or Evernote , dramatically improving your typing rate. Or forapps that benefit from the extra precision of a mouse and trackpad—think SketchBook or Adobe Photoshop Sketch . Any app that’s ever frustrated you on a smaller screen can work well on a laptop or desktop.

    Most of these apps are perfectly happy running on multiple Android devices too, so all your stuff gets synced over fairly effortlessly once you’ve signed in with your Google account. There are exceptions, like WhatsApp—which really needs a phone attached to work—but most apps will be fine with having your laptop registered as another device.

    Whatever app you choose, there are a growing number of ways to get them on your laptop.

    On Windows and macOS

    Bluestacks for Windows has long been one of the best Android emulators out there for desktops and laptops, and is still one of the top choices. It’s focused primarily on gaming, but you can use it to run any kind of Android app you like. A macOS version does exist, but it seems to have been discontinued, so your experience with it will vary.

    With the software downloaded and installed, you can browse through games on the Google Play Store straight from the opening splash screen or via the System app folder under the My apps heading on the left. For anything you can’t find, you need to click Home then Install APK and point Bluestacks towards a file you’ve downloaded from a repository like APK Mirror .

    The application emulates a Galaxy Note 3 tablet running Android Lollipop, which is now four years old, so anything that won’t work on that device is going to struggle here too: We got Spotify running, for example, but couldn’t get Instagram to function. You certainly can’t fault the app in terms of ease-of-use and layout, with all your apps neatly laid out and new ones just a click away.

    Bluestacks comes with a bunch of useful features too, like a full-screen mode, keyboard control support (where available), an integrated screenshot tool, and the ability to set your location manually (just so Android doesn’t get confused about where you are). It’s the slickest emulator experience on Windows, certainly as far as games go.

    NoxPlayer for both Windows and macOS matches Bluestacks pretty much feature for feature, but is even faster and more intuitive to use. Again, you get full access to the Google Play Store so you’re not reliant on loading in APKs from third-party sources. The interface is slick and easy on the eye, and we had no problems getting the emulator up and running.

    When you’ve opened the software, just head to the Play Store app in the Google folder and pick the apps you want to use: This time we could run pretty much everything we tried, including Instagram , so if you want a little floating Instagram window on the side of your desktop, NoxPlayer fits the bill.

    Like Bluestacks, you get plenty of handy features for managing Android apps on a computer, like options for tweaking mouse and keyboard input commands, a built-in screenshot tool, and a full-screen mode. You can even transfer files between your computer and your virtual Android device, as well as run multiple instances of Android apps if you need to (for different user accounts, maybe), which Bluestacks can do as well.

    You’re still on an older version of (virtual) Android (Lollipop) but you should find most of your favorite Android apps working in the Nox Player. Click the cog icon (top right) to set the application options, including the graphics rendering mode, how much of your system resources it can use up, and the default resolution.

    On Chromebooks

    Android app support is now rapidly improving on Chromebooks, and you can check out the current list of Chrome OS machines that can run apps from the Play Store here . To give you an idea of how well Chromebooks currently run Android apps, we’ll detail the process as it stands on a Google Pixelbook .

    The Google Play Store appears just like one of your Chrome OS apps, and because you’re already signed into your Google account on the Chromebook, you can jump straight into the apps—browsing and installing them works just as it does on any Android smartphone.

    One annoying result of this integration is that clicking on an app link on the web fires up the Play Store app rather than opening the Play Store site, and that’s not always going to be the behavior you want (you can get around this with an incognito window, but it’s still not ideal).

    Despite a few imperfections and glitches, the experience of running Android apps on Chrome OS now feels much more polished than it used to be. You can drag around individual windows, minimize them to the app shelf, and even make them full-screen (though apps that haven’t been optimized for tablet use might struggle with this).

    It’s getting rarer and rarer to find Android apps that won’t work on Chromebooks, although occasionally glitches can happen. Apps update automatically in the background, just as they would on any other Android device, and on most Chromebooks you now have the choice of touchscreen or even stylus input as well as using your keyboard and trackpad (which can be clunky depending on the app).
