I deleted my google, facebook, microsoft accounts, so, yeah, I can live without those guys, let’s see if they can live without my data, xD.
I bought one of those cheap phones, I disabled g playstore, gmaps, etc; I use aurora and fdroid to get apps, mainly bitwarden, nextcloud, k9mail, vlc, and a couple of other music players. That’s it.
My main laptop broke down, so I won’t be doing the porting until I fix that, or maybe I should consider getting a refurbished laptop.
Anyway, the reason for getting a cheap phone was so I could port and try options, like sailfish, /e/, maybe ubuntu, or anything that seems more fun that android, it is a very low bar.
If it gets too messy or cumbersome, I can always order a teracube (iode OS), or a volla, they have very reasonable prices.
Not a lot of phone choices to go with Graphene, lineage, a bit of a bummer.
