Looks like there won’t be a lack of privacy-first ROMs in the near future. I found out about GrapheneOS from the privacytools.io, where I more expected to see something about /e/, but couldn’t. It doesn’t look like a direct rival so far, but rather like a niche product such as CopperheadOS. However, GrapheneOS only at the beginning of its journey.
yeah, that’s the way I was hoping e would go when I perked in Kickstarter
Do your due diligence on Copperhead and Graphene. They are related, with an ugly history. See Redit, etc. Note that privacytools also recommends Lineage, which is the base for /e/, and others.
would you mind posting a link about Copperhead and Graphene?
Reddit search, see the Goodbye and Stolen Donations headlines:
Wikipedia isn’t always the best, but they have a concise summary of problems/history:
Edit: This discussion (tl;dr) talks about all 3, including /e/, and may have led up to Graphene being listed on PrivacytoolsIO.
Thanks for the links!
I read quite a bit and do get the idea that Copperhead is pretty dead and Graphenes future is quite uncertain.
But my main impression is that above all theres a spirit in the /e/-community to keep things sympathetically simple!
