I also vote for the F-Droid distribution. I am trying to build it from
git clone https://github.com/gfwilliams/Gadgetbridge.git
I also created a local.properties file pointing to the Android SDK.
But I am stuck at the CONFIGURING stage:
> Configure project :app
Checking the license for package NDK (Side by side) 21.4.7075529 in /home/user/Android/Sdk/licenses
License for package NDK (Side by side) 21.4.7075529 accepted.
Preparing "Install NDK (Side by side) 21.4.7075529 (revision: 21.4.7075529)".
<====---------> 33% CONFIGURING [1h 20m 18s]
What could be wrong? But thanks for the Google Play Store version. I extracted it and installed it through adb instead on my phone without Google:
adb install-multiple base.apk split_config.armeabi_v7a.apk split_config.en.apk split_config.xhdpi.apk
I am also having issues with the Notification settings > Applications list. It is showing only system apps, none of my installed apps. But maybe it is better to start a new topic for these issues? This topic is getting quite big with a lot of different issues being discussed.
