Feeling like a boss hacker when I got this far. And now I've even managed to install pixel experience 😎
Pretty cool to get Android 10 on this old Nexus 5x but it's only temporary while I figure out how this all works. In the next few days I'm gonna replace it, probably with lineageOS

I'm wanting to try a different version of :android: on an old Nexus 5x I've got. Something like lineageOS :lineageos: or /e/OS but I'm new to this whole thing so hoping some kind folks might have some advice for me or be able to point out good resources.

First up which custom ROM and why?
Is the most basic AOSP Google's version or have the built on top of it?
What stops older phones from being supported with the latest version of Android?
Any gotchas I should be aware of?

Mmhmm this does sound good.
Switching between camera and presentation been annoying me. Hopefully they can make this simple enough that it doesn't get in the way. Could actually see it being cool for streamers too.

Hello World!
I'm MonkeyMatt, new here and new to the Fediverse in general so thought I'd make my

Over the last couple years I've been thinking a bit about some of the concepts that are part of Fediverse but didn't realize it already existed. So awesome!

I ended up down this rabbit whole after looking into @k9mail which as a software dev by trade (predominantly Android) I'm hoping I might be able to contribute to. It desperately needs swipe to delete for one.

So anyway, howdy 👋
