Mike Gerwitz (mikegerwitz)'s status on Sunday, 29-Jan-2017 19:56:33 UTC Mike Gerwitz Looks like #Replicant is seeing some more development: http://redmine.replicant.us/boards/21/topics/12057?r=13991#message-13991
But it's a lot of work for one person. It's a shame that there are so few Android devs that care about a free Android OS and are willing to put some time into it. That's why I'd like to see #LineageOS adopt some of the principals, at least as a base upon which they build non-free images.

Might I remind everyone of all the other things Google gathers about you (use #Replicant, btw, or at the very least don't identify yourself with a Google account):
Mike Gerwitz (mikegerwitz)'s status on Friday, 03-Jun-2016 04:17:08 UTC Mike Gerwitz On my S3 running #Replicant, IceCat (and FF) immediately crash when starting. I got a stack trace through adb, and it says "No available EGL configurations". I found this:
This is rather unfortunate. Orweb works, but I want a browser with which I can install the addons that I consider necessary. Anyone have any suggestions?
...my timeline has become an Android support line.
Mike Gerwitz (mikegerwitz)'s status on Friday, 03-Jun-2016 00:56:26 UTC Mike Gerwitz I'm not all that familiar with software for #Android and other mobile OSes: does anyone have a suggestion for free/libre, end-to-end encrypted, !privacy-respecting, decentralized software that supports both Android and iOS for text, video, and voice?
My life would be easier if I didn't need iOS support; I have people on iOS devices to communicate with.
Oh, and it needs to work on #Replicant without any proprietary software dependencies.
Mike Gerwitz (mikegerwitz)'s status on Wednesday, 01-Jun-2016 04:36:51 UTC Mike Gerwitz Just installed #Replicant on my "new" Samsung S3; works great!
It's still a tracking device, though.
Mike Gerwitz (mikegerwitz)'s status on Saturday, 06-Feb-2016 20:19:56 UTC Mike Gerwitz Wow. #Apple will brick your #iPhone (with a fingerprint reader, is seems) in iOS 9 if it has been repaired by someone other than Apple:
You shouldn't be using an iPhone to begin with. But this shows another way that #proprietary software is used to control users---in this case, having the effect of controlling the repair market too.
Just give Apple more money for a new iPhone, forget that you lost your personal data unless you decided to back it up to the "iCloud" (which is a terrible idea), and then move along and be happy.
Or run an operating system that respects your #freedom, like #Replicant.
