Status of the hardware test application smmi_test

bnsmbbnsmb Level 1

Hi

the Android from ASUS for the Zenfone 8 contains a very handy hardware test app (SMMI_TEST). Unfortunately that test app does not run on Custom ROMs for the Zenfone 8 due to a not matching certificate.

So question:

Are custom ROM developers allowed to include the SMMI_TEST app with the correct certificate in the custom ROM for Zenfone 8?


regards

  • Hello @bnsmb!

    I just got info regarding this, SMMI is a preloaded app in the ZenUI image, if the phone is loaded with a custom ROM the app will be gone as well.

    Hello Matthias

    thanks for the answer.

    sure ... but I can extract the App from the running ASUS Android, re install the Zenfone8 with a Custom ROM and then reinstall the SMMI app (or add the SMMI app to the image of the CustomROM). My question was not regarding how to do that .


    My question is:

    Am I allowed to add the SMMI App to a Custom ROM for the Zenfone 8 and distribute that Custom ROM? I guess this app is the property of ASUS.

    So it's a question to the Lawer

    regards
