I made an article about degoogling an Android phone. I get asked a lot about this topic so I wrote it down. Feedback is appreciated as usual!

You forgot netguard. To keep those apps you cannot remove from "calling home".

@rudolf well, that's not exactly an issue as there is no app calling home in initial installation and if you are forced to install and use one, then you probably can't block it on firewall either.

Btw you are many times able to remove "non removable apps" using adb shell command:

pm uninstall -k --user 0 <package_name>

But looking at it second time, it will be good addition in some special cases, so I will add it to the article. Thank you!

@marian_mizik
It is not clear that your article says one must have Lineageos.

And even if, Lineageos does contact Google

@marian_mizik I've been using the e project is on my s9 for last few weeks.nar far most elegant method for degoggling I've come across so far

@timeslip1974 Cool! They have great potential to get bigger user base.
