I am now able to install the Brave app (I think I was out of memory before!)… but … now, when I click on the brave rewards icon in the search bar, and then select ‘join rewards’ and it attempts to ‘create wallet’ bu then crashes with the attached crash report.

This is something to do with Google Play services, right??


glad to know it installed now

microG is a group of service that replace the google service that need for some app it used by lineage which is /e/ is based on it

let me ask one of the team for help here @Serg @tmancey
