Bootloader is locked out of the box, but doesn't verify signatures before booting (so SPFT can be used to bypass the locked bootloader), it is also unlockable in a Nexus-like fashion if you want fastboot support.

It'll work with any US carrier, this phone's got amazing LTE band support.

Anyone got ideas on the battery llife?
Battery life is good, but the power management software is a little too aggressive for my liking. When I have time to do full benchmarks (with my usual optimizations, including limiting the aggressive power saving) I'll post more info.

The Android Pie navigation is part of the stock launcher that Google ships on Pixel and Android One phones,
it's not actually built into Android. I haven't tried getting it working on the F1 yet, but it does have it's own implementation of fullscreen swipe-up gestures in Smart Assistant
EDIT: I'm not actually positive about that first part. Either way, it's something that's not included here.

For root you need to use Magisk 17.3, it doesn't work with Magisk 18+ (not good, hoping we find out why soon). To remove encryption you must Format Data in TWRP and then flash this zip BEFORE

The real question is going to be whether we see any development for it on XDA. I'm seriously considering buying an F1, but since you really can't rely on first-party software updates for these Chinese no-name devices, I'm holding off to see if it gets some love here on XDA.
Correct, but you must visit the settings and enable OEM unlocking first, and the command is "fastboot flashing unlock" for this one. Also the bootloader doesn't verify signatures if it's locked so all this really does is allow you to use fastboot to flash things. SPFT also works so this is insecure but on the bright side it means the phone is virtually unbrickable. I would love to see XDA add a forum for the device. I'll also be working on it a bit.
