Part of the series: Podcast recommendations
This is an open series where Hacker Public Radio listeners can share and recommend podcasts that they listen to.
My review on the FP3 when it came out
Two solutions for a free OS:
lineage OS - free android with the Gapps removed
the /e/ project !! A "de-googled" operating system - actually a fork of lineage OS - this is what I'm going to talk about here.
The research paper on Google Data Collection by Professor Douglas C. Schmidt, Vanderbilt University (2018) - learn how and how often normal Android phones send your data to Google servers.
Another background article on tracking (in German) based on research from a Norwegian journalist:
MicroG services, a replacement for Google's libraries on /e/ with purely open-source implementations.
The man behind the /e/ project: Gael Duval, pioneer of Open Source, Mandrake, Ulteo...
His article outlining his vision for /e/ : https://gael-duval.medium.com/e-os-redefines-the-mobile-operating-system-paradigm-for-a-more-sustainable-world-4e929b1010c
You can buy a FP3 and an FP3 + with /e/ pre-installed here !!
Installing on your phone: over 110 devices supported: from Asus to Google, to Oneplus and Xiaomi
How to install it on the FP3
Install /e/ on FairPhone FP3 - FP3 | /e/ documentation
Privacy ratings of apps: https://exodus-privacy.eu
- KISS launcher
- Simple launcher
I recommended you add these apps:
- Antennapod - podcast client
- FairEmail or simple email
- Fennec (Firefox)
- newpipe for watching youtube without being tracked
Backup via adb is apparently broken | Not the fault of /e/!!
You cannot simply flash a new recovery, such as TWRP, to flash images or backup, instead, you can use this method
