In Android 12 and above, the system restricts the process, the virtual machine runs unstable or cannot continue to run in the background. You need to obtain shell permissions to remove the restriction. Therefore, it is necessary to download VMOS Assistant to assist in obtaining Shell permissions. You only need to activate it once. After activation once, you don’t need to pay attention to the activation status of the assistant. If VMOS Pro runs unstable or cannot continue to run in the background, just activate it again!

When you try to use VMOS app without VMOS Assistant on Android 12 and above, you will get a prompt to download it

Activation:
In this tutorial, I will use my tablet Samsung Galaxy S6 Lite running Android 13

Download and install VMOS assistant from the official website: VMOS小助手

Open the VMOS assistant, and open the first four steps of preparation. Steps translated below
1. Connect your phone to WiFi
2. Unlock the "Developer Options" in the system settings
3. Turn on the "Wireless Debugging" switch in the "Developer Options"
4. Go to "Developer Options" - "Wireless Debugging"
Click "Pair device with pairing code" to get a 6-digit pairing code
Enter the 6-digit pairing code in the notification bar


I'll explain more about those four steps below

Step 1: That's the easiest step, connect your phone to WiFi. If you don't have Wifi, you can't activate VMOS Assistant

Step 2: Unlock the Developer Options. Go to "Settings" > "About device" > "About phone". Tap “Build number” seven times. Enter your pattern, PIN or password. The Developer Options will be unlocked

Step 3: Go to "Settings" > "Developer Options" > "Wireless Debugging". Enable Wireless Debugging.

If you got the screen "VMOS Pro is already running normally" in chinese, you have activated it successfully

You can now use VMOS normally

What should I do if the startup fails?
When the startup fails, you can enter your relevant information in the pop-up feedback pop-up window. After VMOS receive your feedback, they will adapt and notify you as soon as possible

Do I need to start the VMOS assistant service every time?
After the activation is successful, theoretically, there is no need to activate again, and after restarting the phone, there is no need to activate again. When VMOS Pro runs unstable or cannot continue to run in the background, just activate it again.

I think you can disable wireless debugging, but don't uninstall assistent. you may need it again in case vmos fails

Assistant requires wireless debugging not sure why seems fishy enough. Feels like giving remote access to somebody.

To recover my saves from previous vmos i installed titanium backup but root is activated yet it does not acces it. Were you able to update supersu?

Assistant uses adb commands locally so you don't have to use a PC. If it was a remote access, it wouldn't need debugging at all

Try disable and enable root.

ran vmos assistant and got the successful activation screen but vmos pro keeps on crashing upon loading is that normal
Have you tried other roms?

Hi AndnixSH, I'm currently running android 12 on an oppo a16, I've done all the steps and almost everything works fine, my problem is that all the games that are imported or installed from vmos pro don't launch, it displays an error message telling me that the application has stopped automatically, would you have a solution?
Good evening and be well

It doesnt work for android 13
Try VMOS 2.9.7 official version. Also provide feedback to VMOS developers via the app
