{Open,Easy}EUICC

A fully free and open-source Local Profile Assistant implementation for Android devices.

There are two variants of this project:

  • OpenEUICC: The full-fledged privileged variant.
    • Due to its privilege requirement, OpenEUICC must be placed inside /system/priv-app and be signed with the platform certificate.
    • The preferred way to including OpenEUICC in a system image is to build it along with AOSP.
  • EasyEUICC: Unprivileged version that can run as a user app.
    • Due to obvious security requirements, EasyEUICC is only able to access eSIM chips whose ARF/ARA contains the hash of EasyEUICC's signing certificate.
    • Prebuilt release-mode EasyEUICC apks can be downloaded here
    • For removable eSIM chip vendors: to have your chip supported by official builds of EasyEUICC, include the ARA-M hash 2A2FA878BC7C3354C2CF82935A5945A3EDAE4AFA

Building (Gradle)

Make sure you have all submodules cloned and updated by running

git submodule update --init

A file keystore.properties is required in the root directory. Template:

storePassword=my-store-password
keyPassword=my-password
keyAlias=my-key
unprivKeyPassword=my-unpriv-password
unprivKeyAlias=my-unpriv-key
storeFile=/path/to/android/keystore

Note that you must have a Java-compatible keystore generated first.

To build the privileged OpenEUICC:

./gradlew :app:assembleRelease

For EasyEUICC:

./gradlew :app-unpriv:assembleRelease

Building (AOSP)

There are two ways to include OpenEUICC in your AOSP-based system image:

  1. Include this project and its dependencies inside the AOSP tree.
    • If inclusion in manifest.xml is required, remember to set the sync-s option to clone submodules.
    • The module name is OpenEUICC. You can include it in PRODUCT_PACKAGES, or simply build it standalone using mm.
    • Compilation of this project is only tested against the latest AOSP release version. The app itself should be compatible with older AOSP versions, but the source may not compile against an older AOSP source tree.
  2. If compilation against AOSP source tree is not possible, consider building with gradle and import the apk as a prebuilt.
    • No official Android.bp is provided for this case but it should be straightforward to write.
    • You might want to include privapp_whitelist_im.angry.openeuicc.xml as well.

FAQs

  • Q: Do you provide prebuilt binaries for OpenEUICC?

  • A: Debug-mode APKs are available continuously as an artifact of the Actions CI used by this project. However, these debug-mode APKs are not intended for inclusion inside system images, nor are they supported by the developer in any sense. If you are a custom ROM developer, either include the entire OpenEUICC repository in your AOSP source tree, or generate an APK using gradle and import that as a prebuilt system app. Note that you might want privapp_whitelist_im.angry.openeuicc.xml as well.

  • Q: AOSP's Settings app seems to be confused by OpenEUICC (for example, disabling / enabling profiles from the Networks page do not work properly)

  • A: When your device has internal eSIM chip(s) and you have inserted a removable eSIM chip, the Settings app can misbehave since it was never designed for this scenario. Please prefer using OpenEUICC's own management interface whenever possible. In the future, there might be an option to exclude removable SIMs from being reported to the Android system.

  • Q: Can EasyEUICC manage my phone's internal eSIM?

  • A: No. For EasyEUICC to work, the eSIM chip MUST proactively grant access via its ARA-M field.

  • Q: Removable eSIMs? Are they a joke?

  • A: No, even though the name "removable embedded SIM" can sound like an oxymoron. In fact, there can be many advantages to these chips compared to fully embedded ones. For example, the ability to transfer eSIM profiles without carrier support or approval, or the ability to use eSIM on devices that do not and may never get the support, such as Wi-Fi hotspots.
