Help F-Droid acquire system privileges - view in repository

Description

Note: This is still in a testing phase. If you install this app, F-Droid will need root privileges to install it as a system app.

org.fdroid.fdroid can make use of system privileges or permissions to install, update and remove applications on its own. The only way to obtain those privileges is to become a system app.

This is where the Privileged Extension comes in - being a separate app and much smaller, it can be installed as a system app and communicate with the main app via AIDL IPC.

This has several advantages:

  • Reduced disk usage in the system partition
  • System updates don't remove F-Droid
  • The process of installing into system via root is safer
