Many apps require google play services to run. An alternative seems to be the micro-G project. This solution requires signature spoofing to be enabled to properly work.
From this question it appears that enabling signature spoofing is as simple as selecting the “Disable android system package verification” in the android app support settings.
However on the phone I am working with this option does not appear with only the options “Start Android App Support on startup” and “allow android apps to access your contacts” being available. Is this normal and what steps can I take to solve this problem ?
For additional information the phone is an Xperia X single sim, running sailfish os 18.104.22.168.
