Phones LineageOS 15.1 is officially supported on
LineageOS is the successor to Cyanogenmod – a Google-free, freedom technology alternative to stock Android that isn’t infected with Google Play Services (Google’s surveillance services) … Version 14.1 is stable and runs flawlessly on older hardware but if you’re looking for a new phone, this list I compiled may help.
@desikn Was just reading about it yesterday. Have yet to try it out but aiming to when I get a chance.
@aral Can't wait to install it as soon as the Pixel is supported!
Dat site homepage still returning 500...
@aral oh, is "web+" the official name for the dat/Beaker browser stuff? there's gotta be a better name than that...
If people can’t find something, they also can’t use or promote it, which I’m afraid puts us at even more disadvantage.
Unix naming conventions mostly don’t help, except when it’s reasonably unique. And even then, my colleague is still struggling with xcb („xbc“) and I regularly get rgb wrong („rbg“).
@aral the Sony Xperia XA2 looks sweet. And is half the price of a Fairphone...
@aral It's a pitty that OS for mobile phones does not work more like GNU/Linux for standard computers: you can install the same distro on almost all computers with the same processor architecture. Given the current capacity of modern phones, I think it should be possible to pack all the drivers and specific settings to the basic Android, and then chose the appropriate ones when loading the OS (or during install). I think the problem comes from manufacturers not releasing any of the drivers, etc
