I’m trying to replace the phone app with the Google dialer by installing the Dialer 2.1 and the Google contacts 1.1 as system apps. The problem is when calling I don’t get the popup to choose which SIM to use, and then nothing happen. I used the same method with flyme 4 and it worked fine. Anyone have a solution ?
I’m using flyme 188.8.131.52A on Meizu M1 Note
Install Google Dialer
@Dimitrive it adds nothing.
Could it be a missing framework or something ? Because I can only install the app as a system app, and the calling account in preferences shows a blank page With no options
@Dimitrive Yes, used Google installer 1.4.4
Google dialer 2.1, Google contacts 1.1, got the apks from apkmirror
@Dimitrive sorry, what framework, Could you be more specific ? Isn’t all Google related component included in the Google installer ?
@Dimitrive the link is dead :/
Since I found how to install these 2 apk to our device, I thought that it would be good to share it with you.
This will only work if you have Root access
First download this zip file from this link
Unzip this archive and you will get 2 different apk
Copy both apk to folder system/priv-app (I use free es explorer)
Give these permissions to each of these apk
Install each apk by click on them and select install.
(Optional) Restart device
Now you should be able to find 2 new apps at application drawer :
Phone (with blue icon) and
You can make shortcuts with them to access them directly from Homescreen.
Hope it helped!
@Dimitrive I can only install Google dialer as a system app therefore it doesn’t show in the security center
@Dimitrive I know how to do it
But you can’t manage permissions for system apps, they don’t show in that list
