You have a custom rom on your phone... Right anon?
>>
I would have to pay some chink over $100 to remotely unlock the bootloader of my s10e to do that.
At least I got this phone for free.
>>
>>84469061
Yes, LineageOS with MicroG.
I only need it for banking applications and better GPS support.
>>
>>84469061
Nope, enjoy your poor performance and battery life anon !
>>
>>84469101
Thanks, already have that doe
>>
>>84469101
Literally the same battery life and performance.
If not better since there's no bloatware installed.
>>
no but disabled play services which is basically the same

What do you mean you dont want our dedicated shit shop app?

Lineage 18 on my trusty LG V20. When I can't maintain it anymore I will probably stop carrying a cell phone since 3G networks are being phased out and there will be no more non-"smart" phones.

Why wouldn't I use android in 2021, I can at-least get control and ownership on android phone.
Why would I get iCandy instead?

Do you know the horrors of locked bootloaders? The despair you feel when you scroll through xda-developer forums finding nothing? The feeling of grief will slowly eat your soul, until you find that one post telling you that the only way is to literally exploit a hardware CVE to flash your ROM?

I have gone through that. And I tell you, Anon, that it was worth it. I didn't give up. I refused to live in the botnet. I didn't want to choose between removable battery and root. I chose to have them both. So what if normie apps wont work because I'm missing Google Play Services? So what if I lose warranty? I chose freedom and even Richard Stallman himself would be proud of me.

I survived, and to any of you who haven't installed a custom ROM: With enough determination, you will survive too.
>>
>>84469261
Literally the same excuses as the Linux freetards

"I need my freedomâ„¢ yet you're using a OS that is literally owned by Google lmao"

Where is this image from, I keep seeing it get posted.

>>84469168
You can't unlock the bootloader on snapdragon unless you have access to samsung's special tool. There is no other way. So stop calling people dumbasses when you have no idea how it works, dumbass

>>
>>84469289
you can run custom roms without the google crap, faggot.

I see why you're confused though, flashing a ROM requires some technical knowledge.
Definitely not something a brainwashed itoddler would understand.
>>
Look, Apple vs Android guys:
The only conclusion that your fruity discussion bears is that
>>84469242
and
>>84469224
are Americans.

Pls stop flooding the thread, I want to read about this thread's subject for once.

I am literally somehow always the idiot that always gets a phone that doesn't have custom rom support, me idiot
>>
>>84469367
you checked xda-developers?
>>
>>84469061
for me its calyx os, the schizo ROM for people who need to talk to normies
>>
>>84469289
>"I need my freedomâ„¢ yet you're using a OS that is literally owned by Google lmao"
And what's your point here.
there are two evils and one allows to be less evil then the other one.
>>
>>84469061
I'm planning on it, and whether or not I stick with it is a question of how usable the rom is.
Recommendations?

>>84469380
Yes

Somehow all Phones i gravitate to are Mediatek ones. I should inform myself more properly before purchase, but then in store i just go "Haha, this phone seems to be in my specs and prizerange" and then I buy it. My brain turns off.

I had a mediatek too and dealt with it. Seems that not all of them are lost cases.

When I was younger I liked to play with custom ROMs and patches. I am not interested in that anymore and just use a stock ROM on my Samsung A51. It is not even rooted. Maybe I am becoming old...
Custom ROMs frequently have bugs or lack features.

yes, i have grapheneos installed
>>
>>84469061
Yeah but I feel like the custom rom/root scene is dying off because of safetynet and normies. Not being able to use banking apps simply because your phone isn't cucked sounds awful.
>>
>>84469061
Are there ROMs for an iPhone 7?
>>
Ubuntu Touch isn't a ROM, is it?
>>
>>84469061
No. Phones are trash to be used for voice, messages and navigation. I tether to a Thinkpad on the road so I've a proper PC for everything else.

Phone UIs and apps sucking are only a problem when you use them.

LINEAGE CHAD REPORTING FOR DUTY. FUCK JEWGLE

>>84469061
no my jailbroken ios wasn't made by an indian tech guy
>>
>>84469167
What version of the phone do you have?
What features are working/not working?
Mine is H-910 and people on forums say 2nd display isn't supported, FM isn't working and there's a risk of unrecoverably bricking the phone bc of some proprietary files in the bootloader
>>
>>84469061
No, I have a galaxy s7 and lineage STILL has a bug where you echo during calls. So I'm stuck with stock until this eventually dies and I switch to a pixel or something.
>>
>>84469357
Like there's nothing else than mobile BSD and JVM/Linux

>>84469334
False yet hilarious that you bought into that.
>>
>>84470204
1) It is not false. Prove it isn't false. You can't because you are a retard.
2) I didn't buy into anything. I got the phone for free.
Stop giving /g/ a bad reputation you donut

always had, started with my then galaxy spica. going to a cuarom android 2.2 with multi touch was awesome. as of now still using my oneplus one, thanks to the good ROM support

>>84469061
If by custom you mean LineageOS then yes. If you mean custom as in some XDA pajeet's rom then no.
>>
>>84469061
I would if I could, but I'm too retarded to compile the source code of /e/ for my phone. Would've flashed the rom from the previous gen of said phone but the bootloader version was too new.
