  • starting a native adaptive Linux client for Signal | 2021-04-11
    For push notifications, I think we should implement a native Linux daemon for Firebase Cloud Messaging without Android. This would require no extra effort for the Signal Foundation. It could also be used for reimplementations of other Android chat applications such as WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Slack, Zulip, and more. microG has already reimplemented the Android API in Kotlin and studying that code could be helpful.

    I'm not so sure if it works on your device though you could try installing microg stuff

    I'd start with a reflash of the rom so it's clean. Then try the official ones (not a fork) or

    Which is why microG is a thing.
  • Is the COVID Alert app a failure?
    I really wish there was an F-Droid fork, it's the only reason I don't use it. Focusing on the open-source aspect of the app could create a lot of good will and trust with the community, and it could use bundled or system MicroG instead of Google Play Services, like Germany's app does.

    It does connect to google for firebase notifications. Here is a list of the google API it re-implements.
  • Which Android OS? | 2021-04-01
    LineageOS is the obvious choice, I use Aurora Droid and Aurora Store yet have still not found an app I need Play Services for. If not, it's possible microg has implemented the feature you need, otherwise there's the OpenGapps pico variant which will almost certainly be sufficient.
  • I finally ditched Micro G. Should i get Graphene os in the future? | 2021-04-01
    Do you mean you tried signing in with your Google account? I don't have one and I wouldn't want to, so I can't tell you if that's just an incidental issue - have you checked the microG issues on GitHub?
  • LineageOS 18.1 Released | 2021-04-01
    I've been using LineageOS since the good ol' CyanogenMod days and I am very grateful for how much work the developers put into it day in and day out.

    Thanks to them, I managed to get rid of Google Apps in my day-to-day life almost[0] entirely and drastically improve privacy for me: Instead of Google Play Services I use MicroG[1] and instead of Play Store, I use Aurora Store[2] and F-Droid. For syncing files there is Syncthing[3] and for backups there is Seedvault[4]. To isolate apps I don't trust I use NetGuard[8] and Shelter[9] and practically no internet-facing app has access to my internal "SD card" on which my photos and documents reside. As a bonus, getting rid of GApps and using LineageOS has increased my phones' battery life and their overall lifetime tremendously. (I've only owned three smartphones in my entire life, the original T-Mobile G1, the HTC One M8 and the BQ Aquaris Pro.) I couldn't be happier.

    That being said, I've closely been following GrapheneOS[5] because I find its additional security guarantees very attractive. In fact, just a few hours ago my new Pixel 5 arrived and I'm looking forward to giving it a try. Though I already know I will miss MicroG… Maybe I'll end up building my own custom Android ROM, using Hashbang or RattlesnakeOS[6, 7]?

    Overall, I don't really understand people who criticize Android for not being open while loudly claiming a "pure" Linux phone would be so much better. (There was yet another discussion here on HN just a few days ago.) Yes, Android is a not your typical open-source project and clearly in the hands of Google. Yes, most phone and chip manufacturers still haven't open-sourced their hardware binary blobs. We definitely have to fight these fights. But with a Linux phone I'd probably be struggling with window-manager-related bugs in the worst possible moments (say, an emergency call) and risk all my data getting stolen whenever I install a new app.

    As much as I like Linux – I dabbled with it the first time almost two decades ago and have been using it as a daily driver for more than a decade – but its stability and, especially, security guarantees are orders of magnitude worse than Android's.

    I secretly hope that Fuchsia will find its way to the desktop at some point and be able to replace my Linux system.

    [0]: I still use Google Maps every now and then

    [1]: . See for LineageOS images that come with MicroG pre-installed.









  • How to use the Kill Switch on a Samsung Tablet? | 2021-03-28
    If the upgrade to Android 8 or higher is not available for your tablet, which it seems to be in your case, there are two solutions I see, flash a custom ROM of Android on it or buy a newer device. For the ROMs, it can allow you to get more superior versions, you can get these ROMs on forums like XDA Developers, which I recommend. On the other hand, I want to tell you some warnings, some features may not work or malfunction, this is usually specified and also, there is an absence of Google services, you should use MicroG, MindTheGapps or Open GApps to have them, choose the one that is recommended by the developer of the ROM you have chosen. If you don't follow the installation instructions correctly, it can cause consequences, like device bricking, it never happened to me personally, I always followed the different guides well, so at your own risk.
