Hey guys,

what do you think about GrapheneOS? (https://grapheneos.org)

I think there are some disadvantages:
- only Pixel devices (because only these have some security "flags")
- no root access
- hardcoded Google domains

and some advantages:
- good hardware support
- hardenized aosp
- closed bootloader after flashing

Now I would like to discus about this ROM

I'm interested in this ROM too. I have a Pixel 3a. I haven't flashed it yet because I'm trying to find out what people's experiences are first. There doesn't seem to be a lot of posts about it. Did you ever flash it? Also, what do you mean by "hardcoded Google domains"?

Well, the captiveportal contacts the Google servers regularly when you connect to a WiFi. That was one reason why I lost interest in the ROM. The other was the limited device support and missing root access. I absolutely need access to the iptables. As a one-man show, the ROM can be adjusted at any time.

Do you have some kind of reference for that? I'm using it now and would really like some proof to bring up in their subreddit as a WTF.

graphene seems great, no root does not
I don't want the bootloader locked.

I want Magisk extensions

I need root for LP _only_ to remove ads. Is there something like LP that allows (interactively) disabling app activities?

GrapheneOS leaves these set to the standard four URLs to blend into the crowd of billions of other Android devices with and without Google Mobile Services performing the same empty GET requests. For privacy reasons, it isn't desirable to stand out from the crowd and changing these URLs or even disabling the feature will likely reduce your privacy by giving your device a more unique fingerprint. GrapheneOS aims to appear like any other common mobile device on the network.
