This is my first time writing on this forum. I am very interested in having a lighter phone that isn’t so distracting and time-consuming.
If there is some way of restricting the installation of new apps, as well as the possibility to remove the standard browser, I would very much like to learn how to do that. I have been thinking of modifying the eOS ROM before flashing it to the phone to remove the browser, or to do this with root or something. However, for the first part on restricting the installation of certain apps, that maybe should be easier? I know that stock Android has Google’s Digital Wellbeing for that, but it is not installed with eOS.
I have also been thinking of creating a custom ROM that doesn’t have any App Store and install new apps by downloading apk files on my computer and transferring them to my phone, however I would like to get automatic updates that I do allow on the phone. And then again, I don’t really know how to do any of these.
To anyone reading this: would you have interesting resources for me to look into this?
You just don’t install new Apps and just let whichever App store you used to install your Apps manage the App updates?
If you think about preventing the OS from introducing something new with an OS update, I don’t think you can do this beforehand. You would have to uninstall/deactivate again once it’s there, but I think this would be necessary rather rarely, at least with /e/OS.
