Custom ROMs and WebView issues

Ran into an issue on one of my devices with the app that runs a custom ROM. I figured I would make a post here to help anyone else facing the issue. So if you are getting stuck on the initialization screen you may need to perform these steps in order to continue with app setup.

Original issue: https://github.com/home-assistant/home-assistant-android/issues/395

Steps to fix:

  1. First install Android webview: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.webview&hl=en_US

  2. Next install the following xPosed module: https://repo.xposed.info/module/net.typeblog.webview

  3. Activate the xPosed module and restart the device

  4. Continue with setting up the Android app
