Amazon is selling Fire tablets now for $50 USD. Maybe that would be a good investment. :) I didn't think they would work for LC testing but Brian Milby used one so I guess it does. He had to transfer standalones via Dropbox I think, but once installed the app ran well. There is probably a way to cable the device to the computer too (which is what I do) but I don't know how Amazon controls that.

Or you can get a really cheap older phone at swappa.com.

The Fire tablets are based on Android until 7, only no google apps on it from factory. It's a good price. Maybe installing openGapps will help.
I can test on Android 7 samsung if i want.
:D :o :) :shock: 8) :lol:

Yeah, that's why I didn't want one. There is no access to the Play Store either.

When you install this OPenGapps (Open Google Apps), there is. Look here:https://opengapps.org/

I also used it when i flashed my old Samsung Sii with LineageOS. Then you can use PlayStore it as before.

Interesting, I didn't know about that. I will keep it in mind. So far I haven't had the courage to flash a new ROM. There aren't many tools for Macs. I have an old Samsung I wouldn't mind ruining though.

For almost every phone you can find info how to flash, resources and tools here:https://www.xda-developers.com/how-to-i ... m-android/ and here:https://forum.xda-developers.com/custom-roms Much info for Samsung phones.

I don't know if you need to flash the entire rom too, just to install Gapps. Maybe putting the zip on a uSD-card is enough, and then just to start the phone in recovery mode. Then install it. But maybe there is no option to install, if there is not an alternative bootloader available.

Many people use the roms on XDA-developers to get rid of the bloatware many phone-providers put on it.

On https://lineageos.org/ you can find a clear rom for your device (there are people there from previous Cyanogenmod, the company Google wanted to buy but they refused).

I don't know specific info about the Fire tablet, but you shouldn't need to flash roms just to get an app onto a device. Unless things have changed a lot recently, just look up how to "sideload" an apk.

You can't sideload OpenGapps, you place the zip on an memory card. Then start the phone by pressing volume+, action and power , Hold & wait until the bootloader comes up, then install the zip and all necessary will be installed.

But probably not possible with the standard bootloader from the factory, there are alternative bootloaders available from where you can also install a rom.
On the Samsung Sii installing Android 7 there was also a pitting needed, increasing/reformatting the internal memory to get it fit. It's succeeded, but its never without risk. There is also a tool to remove the exclamation mark for Samsung when a rom has been flashed.
A bit out of scope here.
