Webview disabled after upgrade to A9 on FP2 / OpenOS / f-droid
Which version of the software are you running?
fp2-sibon-userdebug 9 21.03.0-rel.2 sibon-3cb25d6c
After upgrading to A9 using the Updater app all applications depending on webview stopped responding. They shut down immediately upon starting. In Settings - Developer options I see Android System WebView 89.0.4389.108 (disabled for user)
Is there a workaround?
I looked for a Webview or Webview alternative but couldn't find any in f-droid. Then I tried installing Brave from FFUpdater, knowing that this relies on Chrome/Chromium. Although this yields a functional browser it doesn't fix any apps depending on the WebView widget.
See this comment for instructions on how to enable Android System WebView.
