[Q] Encryption, custom recoveries, unlocked/relocked bootloader and security
Rather technical and controversial topic but I got something really bothers me. I'm about to root my nexus 5 and have checked on xda, reddit, and various forums regarding to possible threats to unlocked bootloaders and security concerns for custom recoveries.
I will certainly encrypt my phone, but not sure how custom recoveries will react to that. Will they work? If so, will they compromise my security? Should I bother with installing stock recovery and re-locking my bootloader? This guy* seems to know what he's talking about, and there are some apps** to ease this process. However, there are loads of forum posts by senior
posters assuring that one shouldn't bother with all those.
Being new to android, what advice can you give to me?
ps. sorry for the links. being new to forums, I'm not allowed to embed links into my posts.
