damn, i can emphasize with the sentiment. hats off to your efforts to slow down time for the last free generation of internet dwellers. sure, permission systems have improved, but to me it looks more like an effort to dissuade critics and make people "feel" in control rather than "be" in control. i think i might have bought my last smartphone. next device will be a mini archlinux or an old dialpad brick. i salute M66B, the legend, as well as my fellow technology outcasts, and wish you well for what's coming...I am considering to terminate support on January 5th 2023 because:
(*) They refuse to add an API to access scopes, resulting a too many questions and also loosing users.
- Not many people use the module anymore
- The support of the project is pretty limited
- Android has become more privacy-friendly over time
- The LSposed developers do not support the module (*)
- The module is too often misused, for example to cheat in games, etc.
- I have received enough hate mail
This means that XPrivacyLua has been supported for exactly 5 years. XPrivacy was first released on June 12, 2013, so that's in total about 10 years of XPrivacy(Lua). I think that is a pretty long time.
