@patience-mpofu were there any changes in this file? I quickly compared this file with the original one and can't see any changes.

@patience-mpofu note that there are many strings.xml files for other languages. because this is just a demo of the white-labelling capabilities, it's OK just to change the en file, but I want to point out that we'd need to (at least consider) changing all the other files too.

Not sure about this change on its own - how would it find the AboutActivity without a package name?

@patience-mpofu I'm unsure about this change. Firstly, we shouldn't be changing their Java code - we can override Java code in the same way as all the other files (by making a copy into the jembi directory), and secondly, it would be better to try use Build.BRAND, Build.MODEL to get a reasonable name to avoid us having to override the Java.

@patience-mpofu I compared this file with the original, and don't see any changes. I believe this is because all the text for the page comes from strings, so just changing the strings should be enough and this copy can be removed.

I think this workaround is going to restrict us in the future, I recommend my third workaround as described in the issue I created here: https://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroidclient/issues/1180

RAD-58 Add a workaround to prevent app crashes
This change add a workaround to prevent the app from crashing when preferences are displayed. A ticket has
been opened with F-Droid https://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroidclient/issues/1180. The workaround will be reverted
once an official fix has been released
RAD-58: Revert applicationId in build.gradle
Reverting the jembi applicationId change because there is also an issue
when sending the APK via bluetooth. Since it's not required that our
app has a different application id, we decided to minimise further risks
and work with the standard F-Droid applicationId.
