Revolut App on LineageOS/AOSP?

I was thinking of installing a OSS-Image on my Phone (AOSP-based, or LineageOS)…

As this requires root - does anybody have experience with the revolut-App on a OSS-Android? (does it run out of the box or does it need some “tinkering”?)

As far as I know financial apps don’t work on rooted devices for security reasons.

Well no problems so far with Lineage OS


As far as I know installing a different ROM doesn’t require rooting. You only do it if you want to. And the functionality of the app depends on the way you root it. If I remember correctly the Revolut app works when the phone is rooted with Magisk.

Revolut works when you have root permission on your device. But login with fingerprint won’t work, you’ll have to insert PIN everytime you open the app.


Revolut worked fine with LOS 15.1 (not rooted, no gapps, stock LOS).
But with 16.0 it is crashing like 5 to 15 seconds after I open it.
Has anyone a similar issue?

Hmm It works on LOS 16 without any problems for me

Is any one of you by chance using a Nexus5x?

(that’s the device I’d like to install a customROM - yet I had to postpone, apparently the creditcard-App (not revolut) shall not like customROMs)

It works for me on LOS 15 except the top-up.

Do you have GApps installed or anything done besides stock?

Yup gapps are installed together with magisk

Seems it won’t work anymore as long as Your device is rooted…
I could not install 5.51 using Play Store and after getting it other way the app crashes…

Didn’t know if the root was the reason, till I didn’t got an mail from Revolut (was talking with them coz of “your device is not supported” in Play Store) with question: “[…] could you please confirm if your device is rooted?”…

MAGISK Hide doesn’t help…

Thanks for your input @Ch3mn3y - i postponed my plan to install a customROM. JUST because revolut - because there’s no other way to manage the account. (atm, :r: is the only card i have that supports GPay in CH - kinda essential.)

It’s a real shame if one thinks about it:
Transferwise: runs perfectly in a browser AND on a tablet.
Neon (a CH-online-bank) also on a tablet.
Even the app of my main-bank runs (now/finally) on a tablet.

Only Revolut ONLY runs on smartphones only - and only if one does not install a customROM. …not the best way to “behave on the market” (especially since there are a lot of topic mentioning "there should be a 2nd way to manage the account other to the smartphone - bc smartphones can brake or get stollen)…

I still use lineage OS (rooted)) and I’m still able to update and use revolut :smile:

I’m on a custom ROM with Magisk and I have no issues with the Revolut app (as long as it is enabled in MagiskHide). Google Pay also works with a workaround which is explained on xda-developers.

Seems You are right. On my other device, rooted as well (with AEX, but Nougat, bot Oreo as the problematic device) Revolut works fine.

Dunno what’s the problem as even previous versions stopped working. No problem with Google Pay, my banking app. Only Revolut has some problems…
Just after I got Play Store info that my device is not supported anymore…

Any of You use Xiaomi device? I have Mi Max 2 and am afraid if it’s not coz of USA-China “war”… The other device is Motorola one, so i wouldn’t be affected.

Hi folks,
thanks for the infos!
I will somewhen give it a try, but only if i have another phone ready to use…
(main reasons: apparently, the Nexus 5X will have to wait a little longer for LOS16, and the app for my main credit-card runs defenetly not on a customROM, but is needed to log in on their web-app…

…i now just hope, that they’re not going to block older android-versions after app-updates… (while the S10e and Mi 9SE look great, i’m not sure if i’m going to buy a non 5g-phone now)

If someone installs a customROM on his/hers Nexus 5X and gets both Google Pay AND revolut running - i would appreciate a “how to” never the less :slight_smile: (not sure if magisk or not, aso)

Is there a solution for S3 with LineageOS 14.1? Thank you.

I “resuscitated” my old phone (Xperia T from 2012) with LineageOS 16, and was able to install the revolut-app.

Now I’d like to test it when logged in to check if everything runs as it should:

Q - do I have to “unlock” the new device (if yes: how to do so)
a) when running the same sim (i can switch from nexus to xperia for testing)
b) when running a different prepaid-card

I am trying to install Revolut on my backup phone, an old Xperia ZR (2013) with Lineage 15.1 and the last update. Doesn’t work. First I had to disable root access to see it on Google Play, then when trying to install it I got this message: “Your device isn’t compatible with this version”.

Is it because Lineage OS dropped support of my phone last month?
