@jeder Seems not to apply to apps that aren’t requiring network connection, but still anoying as hell.
...to the proprietary megacorporations and the Anti-FOSS movement
@arh Not exactly proprietary...
But release it on a proprietary platform or you're harmful.
You can release open-source apps on Google Play just fine but well... you'll be releasing it on Google Play...
@setto it’s less fDroid related and more “any out of play store app”.
there are many side loaded mal ware app
@kura I don't know about that.
I can install *literal malware* downloaded as APK file from an email just fine and Play Protect doesn't start bitching :^)
@setto This would be fair if all apps installed from the play store also had the same warning. Google has shown that they cannot protect you from harmful software either.
@kura Doesn't seem to matter too much.
Multiple phones allow me to (running Android 11, Android 10, Android 9 and Android 8).
I recommend this app for installing (other) apps https://f-droid.org/packages/io.github.muntashirakon.AppManager
I don't use it.
>do you audit the code of application you install over Aurora?
The software installed from aurora are the same from the playstore.
Aurora is only their to replace the google software.
>did you audit Aurora?
I did nothing, my brother found the software and saw that it was under GPLv3 after testing he realized that it was a lot more practical than the google play store.
I don't judge you. it's kind of a reminder for everyone pretending to fix the problem with such alternative, like F-Droid or Aurora.
AOSP is too big to beat and the XDA or F-Droid communities do not have the rigor and professionalism to maintain such critical piece of software.
FOSS on smartphone is a dead end.
Use an iPhone or a dumb phone.
>I don't judge you.
>it's kind of a reminder for everyone pretending to fix the problem with such alternative,
I'm already aware and my brother too, he's just mitigating the issue as much as he can.
>Use an iPhone
>or a dumb phone.
New simcards in france can't work on old phones.
Burner phones require you to register with your passport or ID for it to work.
>is a dead end.
Mobile is dead.
Since the Bataclan attacks our cuck president and sinisters decided that burner phones were mostly used by bad people so it needed more easy traceability.
I noticed that when I participated in the yellow vest protests.
>just have to study AOSP or Replicant
I was a user of replicant until the new sim cards wouldn't work in older phones.
I had a i9100 and still have it.
>it would have been a nice choice.
I haven't followed anything in cellphone tech, I don't use it much.
