I have recently installed a Google-less Android (well as much as it can be) on my phone and I am using microG to bypass any of the Google Play Services issues. When trying to setup Sync on the Android by scanning the QR code I receive a message stating ‘Sync could not be setup [Failed to fetch]’. I am assuming this is somehow related to the Google Play Service as I have tested a few things.
- Tested other Android variants without the Google Play Services - Failed
- Tested without microG installed - Failed
- Tested with the ‘gapps’ Google Apps installed - Worked but puts Google back on the device
For reference I am using a Poco X3 and currently running crDroid OS with microG fully installed and working. It is a clean install so nothing else that could be impacting it at this time. The version of Brave I am using is 1.5.5 which was downloaded from Aptoide.
I have tried to scan the QR code from 2 separate devices and also attempted to use the text code, all failed.
Any support on this would be great as Brave is certainly my daily browser of choice.
