TeamViewer Host Add-On won't install

Resurrection Remix 5.6.9 (Android 6.0.1)
TeamViewer Host 12 (from play store)

I get the prompt that my device supports the remote control feature but the addon refuses to install. I click install and it just fails and says "App not installed."

I've tried all the QS add-ons from the store and they all don't work. Apparently I need the AOSP 1 version from the teamviewer site but when my ticket is unanswered after a week.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Hi noobiee,

Thanks for posting!

Unfortunately, as we require authentication keys from the manufacturers to allow remote support, only stock ROM's are currently supported. Your device is likely a supported device which is why the app is prompting you to install the Add-On, but it cannot be installed due to your custom ROM.

I am sorry for any inconvenience.

ROOT needed, but thanks!

Hey! I had the same problem and after a lot of messing around, I got it to work by installing it as a System App. You will need root. I'm not sure if you can just install it as a System App with something like Lucky Patcher, but what I did was:
  1. After TeamViewer downloads the QS Addon APK, retrieve it from Internal Storage/Android/data/com.teamviewer.host.market/files/Download/TeamViewerQSAddon.apk

  2. Use a file explorer that has root permissions and the ability to change files and folders permissions (I use ES)

  3. Create a folder in /system/app/ or /system/priv-app/ named TeamViewerQSAddon with rwx r-x r-x

  4. Put the APK in that folder and change its permissions to rw- r-- r--

  5. Reboot and it should work! Tested on my OPPO Find7 running CM13.1
