Explain

This plugin is used when you need to install APKs on Android without any UI interruption and silently on Custom Android ROM using rooted devices.

Getting Started

Add this to your package's pubspec.yaml file:

dependencies:
  flutter_install_apk_silently: ^0.1.2

Android

You need to add some permission in AndroidManifest.xml file.

<!-- Install/delete permissions, only granted to system apps -->
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INSTALL_PACKAGES" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.DELETE_PACKAGES" />

Android Root on Emulator

You must have to root your device. To test the package on Emulator, you can follow these instructions here. Or you can root you real device and make your Custom Rom.

Usage

Install APK

You just have to import the package with

import 'package:flutter_install_apk_silently/flutter_install_apk_silently.dart';

Then you can download APK from internet or use one from device storage as file, and pass it to install.

Please see example.

bool result = await FlutterInstallApkSilently.installAPK(file: file);

The method will return a boolean with the status of installation. And if it fails you can catch the error.

Reboot Device

This method helps to reboot your device, you should check your permissions in manifest.

bool result = await FlutterInstallApkSilently.rebootDevice();

This plugin is mainly developed for GRANDTK company.
