Bye bye, Google! No GApps installed. Happy days!
@fireglow I am dreading going to somewhere I don't know with OSMAnd~ I'll definitely miss Maps telling me when the next bus/trains/tube is!
@fireglow Is that the OsmAnd+? I've got that installed. I just realised that it has London transport times (ETAs) on it. Hurrah!
Welcome to the club! Feel free to ask for tips and tricks :)
@Antanicus Oh thanks! That's very kind of you.I feel cleansed! :D
@politicalcustard Welcome to the club!
@lucy My Xperia Z5 feels like new! Glad I took the plunge.
@lucy Lineage's guide for my phone was really good, it only took about an hour. The quickest flash I've ever managed! Usually they've taken hours, if not days!
@julian I was interested to see what Lineage was like without any extras. Maybe that's project for another day! I did read about microg though.
@politicalcustard I'm planning to try Lineage with MicroG today. My phone committed seppuku a while back (just rebooted into a soft brick... Lineage has never been great on my device) and at this point, it's worth learning how to do this, and making a clean break.
@politicalcustard Congrats! I've been doing this for a few weeks or so as well, pretty happy so far.
@uwehermann I'm using Lineage with Nextcloud, I've found it to be a really nice combination. I love your Youtube videos, I've just watched a couple of them, they are very hypnotising, both visually and to listen too.
@politicalcustard sweet. Are battery drainage and delivery delays solved for Signal w/o G-Services?
@dosch I've not noticed any delivery delays with Signal and I've been having a few quick back and forth conversations. Battery has been fine too. Come join the party!
@politicalcustard have been on Lineage for some years, but needed MicroG and playstore for some local gov apps...
@dosch I realised that there were actually battery draining issues but I managed to solve them by using an efficiency profile in the battery and performance settings. It's not made a noticeable difference to the speed of the phone.
