French /e/ foundation develops Google-free Android ROM (in development):
– we are testing it on Moto G4 (Android 7.1.2, Patch Level Dec 2018)
– ROM comes with Signal, Magic Earth, K-9 Mail (fork), microG and more
– you can use F-Droid as an app store
– we will likely publish an article about it in the near future
No, I actually spotted it in my RSS feeds last Saturday. Sadly, LOS dropped support for the Moto G4, however, it is supported by /e/.
Btw: We already contacted the admin and asked if they can self-host their Google font on e.foundation … no answer so far.
Anyway, it looks like an interesting project.
@infosechandbook Nice, the reasoning sounds 100% like https://shivering-isles.com/First-impression-on-e#why-e-why-not-lineageos :D
That's actually a big problem with LOS. Some people even buy their new phone based on the assumption that it is supported by LOS–and then: dropped support.
In the end, you own an unsupported Android phone with many missed security patches, again.
Any chances of supporting any of the Nokia phones in the future?
