HockeyApp + Xamarin SDK ? Custom

Hello, I have successfully set up HockeyApp for my Android app using the NuGet package HockeySDK.Xamarin (4.1.0-beta1). But this package doesn't seem to support the Android Customization Options (

I can't add custom data like UserID, Contact, Description to the crash reports.

Here is how I initialize the CrashManager:

HockeyApp.CrashManager.Register(this, HOCKEYAPP_APPID, new CustomCrashManagerListener());

    class CustomCrashManagerListener : CrashManagerListener
        public override bool ShouldAutoUploadCrashes()
            return true;
        public override string UserID
                return "UserID";

HockeyApp support says the package is developed by Xamarin, so they have no access to the source code.
And Xamarin Insights is shutting down.

Is there any other way or alternative NuGet package (or source code) as a workaround?

Best Regards,
