Anyone have experience "freeing" a Samsung s10 device? I have an S10e and was looking into LineageOS, but apparently you can't run a bootloader on a snapdragon?

Idk hivemind what are my options?

Note: I actually love the device, just think samsung does weird things (like putting ads in the weather/health apps). Any freedom enhancing tips are welcome!

Very cool to see user freedom discussed on a major tech review channel!

Anyone have experience putting a custom ROM (like LineageOS) on a Samsung S10e? I love Samsung's hardware but my goodness do they try their best to ruin Android...

Why don't "stock" image editors come with a rectangle tool anymore? I miss MS paint...

Ok people. Too much Internet for today. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

What does everyone here like to use for instant messaging/video calls? I use Signal, which I like decent enough. I have heard that Element is pretty good, but wanted to see what everyone else thought.

So tried iFixit for the first time. My mistake: replacing the battery of a MBP as my first project...

The thing won't even turn on now. What next?

Can anyone recommend a federated "reddit"? I miss my downvotes ๐Ÿ˜‚

I didn't realize just how good fosstodon was, but now I realize how lucky I was to have picked this instance when I was getting started.

Thank you all (including those of you not on fosstodon) for creating such a wonderful community!

"The issue here is not political correctness, itโ€™s . The overwhelming monopoly that has as a code host is a problem that the community chooses to ignore."

Can someone tell me a little about OsmAnd's license? It says it's GPLv3 with an "exception" whereby you must get written permission to release derivative work on the major app stores.

Does this actually hold up legally? I thought the GPL prohibits "further restrictions"

Hey folks: the Fosstodon CoC is always important, but it might be *especially* important today. A few quotes to remember:

* Fosstodon is *not* a free speech zone
* Fosstodon is *not* an advocacy space
* Do not be intentionally antagonistic
* Do not post about inflammatory, controversial subjects without a Content Warning.

Full CoC:

Be kind to each other out there, and generous with your use of Content Warnings!

Alice, I don't mean to be rude, but how did you get this number and yes I voted, but I'm not going to share that data point with you while also verifying my digits, unless you follow me on fedi.

Just deleted Insta. One less proprietary app I need to worry about!

F the system 

Expanding on this:

If you need shit, buy it used
Use FOSS operating systems and software
Trade or barter for things you need
Hand down unneeded possessions to friends and family
