Can we expect another update?
I'm tired of all roms and i want something simple for basic usage
Thanks
Same here, I dunno why so many devs (including the army of 13-year old devs on t.me) build so many roms & kernels that are mostly the same, I didnt find Derpfest & PE very different from eachother but I was very impressed by Resurrection Remix on another samsung phone though. I do appreciate the hard work all the devs do but when it comes to realizing why old users want vanilla roms instead of gugle included, they dont understand the various serious scenarios of privacy requirement a user might want. They think as if only kids & college-brigade are the biggest users of android. Cant blame the devs coz most people (the whole world taken as one) dont care about privacy, they dont practise privacy much in their own lives, they just arent aware enough of it.
Ask ANY dev how to block/modify shamshung, gugle, mi & hoawai core internal privacy intrusive apps and files & they answer "oh, im afraid thats no longer possible because beginning android 10 partition system has changed bla bla bla & also OEMs are making it more difficult to modify system partitions etc. and they have started taking complete control of their devices bla bla bla". So in other words, all these young devs are able to do is add new skins to android and find out rooting solutions. I do appreciate the rooting solutions (practically just one proper available-magisk) the devs provide apart from that they really cant do much apart than provide "debloated roms", NOT EVEN Lineage COULD BLOCK/MODIFY Privacy Intrusive Core System Apps beginning Android 9 Pie!
Its SHOCKING how the OEMs and software giants have total disregard for Users Privacy....users have become absolute puppets in their hands. Nobody can drag them to court because they make users ACCEPT their Privacy Policies WITHOUT giving users an option to use the devices (That User Purchased) otherwise, unless the users allow themsevles to be followed everywhere. So its like Take It OR Leave It scene. Then our employers and peers and friends say "hey I just sent you the receipt/doc on gmail/whatapp/telegram/one drive /gdrive..what? you are not on gmail?.. oops but our company uses g-services bla bla bla". Men will be men no mattter how much order & tech is brought in. All the rules are being broken at the top while being made to look like alls fair at the user-end lol.
What had started out back then as Developers & FREE-MINDED Users' Enthusiasm to bypass Gugle & OEMs iron fisted regimen on smart devices (more for the sake of human e-rights) has just seemed to have fizzed out as most devs are just busy projecting their new android skins & other tit-bit programs so they get a good job with some OEM or software firms, NO dev or user dares challenge the Software Giants & OEMs in court anymore about Privacy & Trackers as they get purchased or obsoleted & isolated by the Software Giants , OEMs, Peers & the whole Trillion Dollar Software Industry Machinery. In the last 10 years like everyone is busier WORKING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY FOR A SOFTWARE COMPANY or Some Electronic OEM Giant. Everyones Hooked on to some electronic device in one way or the oher.
I'm not complaining about a persons choice of livelihood or lifestyle or need for electronic gadgets but I see young kids just hooked on to big screens and smart devices in front of their faces 24/7 without real-world experiences, I'm just Shocked at how EASY it was for Software & Electronic Giants to sway aside individuals personal rights & privacy to take over this world almost unchallenged. Its no less shocking (& even traumatic ) than Thaliban! Did you notice the difference in the movies that were produced 15 years ago and now? Its just UNREAL & FICTIONAL software generated stuff now or mixed with real & unreal.
Yeah, I know what u guys gonna say- " I need to visit the Psychiatrist! ". Thanks.

#UPDATE:

Guess what I found out. Seems like Lineage 18.1 Vanilla ROM has joined hands with Gugle-spy too, even without gappz! My reasons-

[ A ]
I installed TBPro V8 on Redmi N10 to take a backup (System + App data) of system & 3rd party apps, & the backup process got stuck at 93%, It was stuck forever trying to backup a system app called 'External Storage 11' ; so I froze the app (External Storage 11) using another freezer app (root) and disabled 'run at boot' feature too for (External Storage 11 app) and then AN INTERESTING THING HAPPENED - when I cleared Dalvik & ART Cache to reboot the phone it rebooted but....this time TBPro app refused to start!!! BUT THATS NOT ALL ...lol

[ B ]
Then I used a Root File Exploration app to tryn disable the app (External Storage 11) from /sytem by renaming the app from ExternalStorage11.apk to ExternalStorage11.epk AND ANOTHER INTERESTING THING HAPPENED - This time the Root Exploration app refused to start!!! I didnt clear the Dalvik/ART Cache this time but tried to boot the phone...it was stuck at lineage bootlogo for sometime then OFox recovery got replaced by Twrp so no other option but to reinstall the Lineage 18.1 ROM!

[ C ]
Mostly the andoid devices manufactured by OEM's after 2019 no longer come with removable batteries.

So my conclusions from [ A ], [ B ] & [ C } are-

> Higher grade AI [Artificial Intellingence] is most likely present inside vanilla aosp custom roms of 2021 too so aosp based gappz-roms will have built-in AI (Artificial Intelligence) most definitely, else how would the custom ROMs & OEM Stock ROMs know which 3rd party apps a user was using to tryn disable which critical system apps? I never used a sim nor ever connected to wifi so how?

> Privacy is not about vanilla or gappz included roms, Privacy-breaching Artificial Intellingence is always present in vanilla (non-gappz) roms too because the base andoid 9 ,10 or 11 that sits inside the 64/128 Gb storage doesnt go away by custom-recovery (custom-bios) wipes (maybe fastboot mode could wipe everything but i'm doubtful)

> If the AI (Artificial Intelligence) is capable enough to figure out what buttons a user presses when and for what reason (which definitely it is capable of as I see) then its not hard to imagine that the AI (Artificial Intelligence) could also self-boot the device (when a user has switched off the device or when the user is asleep) and turn-off firewalls etc. too to upload user's personal data to the satellites via users data (sim card) connection OR users wifi connection (using saved wifi PWs) OR using Open-wifi newtworks to communicate with external cloud servers.

> It's no coincidence then that the recent devices come with non-removable batteries because if the primary user of the device is 'User 0' then the AI [Artificial Intellingence] is 'User Invisible/User Hidden' & needs uninterrupted power supply to always be connected to external servers as and when it feels the need to ( ofcourse without users consent. What consent just a copy of your data sent, you still have your data!..lol ). Thats the nature of espionage isnt it? To make it look like something but the core purpose something else too. If you ask any geek or seller about why batteries are non-removable in recent devices they'll say "In-built batteries give better battery-backup!" but the Artificial Intelligence might need power when user is asleep or when device is switched off is something users just leave to their imaginative fiction. The recent andoid versions & even some aosp roms seem to put so much stress on Usage-Pattern Learning & analytics, no wonder.
[ I had seen some lesser-known phones/tabs wake up the screen display for a fraction of a second even after I had switched them off long before in the night..but i presume next-gen AI wont even need display to be ON in order to access internet if programmed to do so ]
I wonder why else would OEMs be so bothered to build 6000 mAh non-removable battery devices with heavier OS that hog the batteries (even when debloated) just to let the user have half-a-day worth of juice more than the older devices? Maybe they want uninteruppted power supply for their Mr. Artificial Intelligence to stay connected to their servers & so they provide Fast-charging as well, all the way upto 120W fast charge..lol

> They make it look like the user can just toggle a few switches in settings and regain privacy but the deeply embedded AI is hidden. I guess even if they accept using such intrusive AI algorithms in the future they wont give a demn coz for the S/W Giants & OEMs users are probably just foolish apes hooked on to games & social sites. It wont bother their conscience coz Trillions of dollars & careers & jobs are at stake, Its huge bizness for them now ; privacy can go for a walk.

> Prabable reasons for huge investments in Software Developement & Artificial Intelligence - Data-mining, Surveillence, Counter-Intelligence by various agencies, To show-off Tech-Superiority, To create a software-dependent world to turn apes into more logical-thinking beings using tech ..lol

BTW whoever are purchasing these complete-spy-devices (over-smart-fones, over-smart tvs, over-smart gadgets) with 800 dollars upwards are noober than me coz I spent just 400 and they paid way more than me to be spied on, these devices are still the same beneath, you like good wardrobes dont you? For me its just a very very expensive flashlight coz im not going to be using complete spy devices if I had the choice.

Thanks for listning. Dont even say it, yes im going to meet the psychiatrist now!

I didnt mean any bad against devs though, they're just working for what they aimimg for, but yes AI inside Andoid 9, 10 & 11 make the device more of a spy gadget from what I sense. Rooting just allows some leverage but I see low-level thugs on street who know high-level thugs inside governments & gugle to pilfer data of individuals (they obviously use Analytics etc. to find just about any detail they need), that renders Root privilages practically useless. But, thanks for putting it on Privacy & Tech Giants. (y)

interesting research..
But theres no way anyone outside the comrade-world could escape big daddy Phentagons surveillance really, maybe not even the KayGB perhaps. Gugle, Mycrowsoft, Appel, Leenux distro communities, all work round the clock for Hoamland Sekurity, they are just the front desks for Phentagon. They prolly have all the 7.8 bil people in this world neatly tagged, filed up in a designated folder for future references in real-time. All this sekurity for the pretty woman walking down the street really, would an ugly duckling be given this kind of protection, not really doesn't happen. I use the Custom ROM channel to upgrade instead of OEM Update channel. Nova is the most popular 3rd party launcher.

However...Alcatel, which is supposed to be "French", is owned by Nokia, which is "Swedish". And some sources say it's unlikely that TCL (the Chinese manufacturer) is involved, rather, some app developers "got hacked"...but how likely is that.

Sounds more like a European false-flag thing?

Uhm...by the way, how hard is it to actually set up some Chineeese server? Can't you just ask a friend or student there to set up a PC for you somewhere?

If Google does it, it's fine, but as soon as that server (or maybe just the first relay node) is located somewhere in China, it's shady-shaaady :poop:

if google does, it's fine - not. that's why I have named some brands sold in EU and US market. it's just stupid mind setting which leads to nonsense like Trumps Huawei ban.

I have explained reasons for data collection here
https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/dkb-tan2go-app-on-rooted-device.3835355/post-79702049

user data is the new oil, they feed their computers for predicting everything. BlackRock is the biggest player here. They own the world already, why they shouldn't own your data... nothing is for free, every f** app is interested in user data. they give you something you benefit from, you give them something back. join discussion here

Im speechless at all this spy wars going on everywhere & innocent people getting bullied like this. So its all justified then, why don't they just charge everyone for their apps & S/W like mycrowsoft does? why keep free things at all when ethics are a question? I spent 4 years day and night 24/7 to find root solutions to secure my devices and just last year i spent sleepless nights for 10 months now for the same reasons. Anyone and everyone who have insiders in gugle, OEM & Telecom finds out every detail about us and leverages it to mock me, its getting obvious and dangerous often. So many people have vanished because terrorists tracked them down through insider tipoffs. This is crazy war going on.

I think you didn't quite understand. companies are interested in your data. but they are not interested on you.

btw cache partition is not containing anything other than recovery logs and OTA

thanks I didnt know that but I also use sdmaid to cleanup app junk & system junk every now n then.
Its not the companies We ar eworried about its the elements who use the companies to get to us thats bothersome, anyway you wouldn't know the mayhem unless you lived where I live :-/

Samsung also? Do you have an example? I mean except the fact that they have to use ARM CPUs and other "third-party" components which renders their chipsets wide-open to whatever vulnerabilities our governments decide to design into the processors...

User data is not the "new" oil - your village priest, teacher, lawyer, doctor, psychiatrist, banker etc. already know everything there is interesting about you. If you went to church in 1900 and confessed to your pastor, what do you think used to happen with that information? Or if all the villagers above happen to have Wednesday pub meetings, what do you think they're talking about? Or why do you think our elites used to send highly-trained loyalist Jesuits in every country before an eventual invasion? Information gathering and convergence is nothing new and it's certainly nothing European-Americans started/invented.

"Vulnerability by Design in Mobile Network Security"

"The digital cellular mobile network GSM (Global System Mobile), commonly called 2G, was standardised by European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) during the 1980s. Weak security was purposely built into the system because various European governments requested the ability to deactivate or break the encryption on the radio link in order to eavesdrop on mobile phone conversations. At the introduction of 2G GSM in 1991, MNOs (Mobile Network Operators) outside Europe were forced to use weak encryption, whereas European operators could use relatively strong encryption. For that reason, a strong and a weak set of cryptographic algorithms were designed. Parts of the GSM 2G standards were kept confidential and only distributed to industry partners under non-disclosure agreements."


What European-Americans are doing is what Europeans have been doing all along, so one shouldn't worry about some shady shell companies in the style of Tyrell Corp. or Weyland Yutani - but the elites in your own village/country and the very culture that nourishes them. "If you point one finger at somebody, three will point at you."

After all, for some magical reasons, it's never us that get sprayed with dioxins or silently "disappeared" from our ancestral lands, right?

I keep my downloads and everything in a pen drive , keeping the Internal storage empty all the time, only transferring files from OTG to Internal Storage when needed then quickly reboot to recovery and delete cache partition everyday :p
That's actually not a bad idea...to keep the device as "stateless" as possible and to store all user data on a separate storage. This would, at least, minimize data loss in the event of technical issues with the device...I think I will try this

your analogy to "new oil" is inappropriate. nobody cares about you, you're not that special Person Of Interest.

BlackRock analysts run the most secret and most complex predicting software in the world (and I am not talking about Aladdin). It's about feeding with as much data as possible, surveillance is just a side effect (they can throw to the dogs to eat keeping governments on short leash)

as for Samsung bloatware, I remember some user claimed about impossible to disable random full screen pop-up ads from Samsung pay. I meanwhile found a tutorial, so this would maybe help him
https://www.androidauthority.com/stop-ads-samsung-phone-3108986

two years ago, Samsung sent out Suspicious notification from "Find My Mobile" to whole world by accident. What's interesting in that, the message was received even by users they never signed up any samsung account, some had even willingful disabled Find My Mobile by revoking it from device administrators
https://android.stackexchange.com/questions/221400/suspicious-notification-from-find-my-mobile

back in 2014 Samsung was proofen backdoors in Galaxy devices (link in comments)

Store your data in two or more separate HDDs, electronically and physically insulated from each other.

    Can we expect another update?
    I'm tired of all roms and i want something simple for basic usage
    Thanks
    Same here, I dunno why so many devs (including the army of 13-year old devs on t.me) build so many roms & kernels that are mostly the same, I didnt find Derpfest & PE very different from eachother but I was very impressed by Resurrection Remix on another samsung phone though. I do appreciate the hard work all the devs do but when it comes to realizing why old users want vanilla roms instead of gugle included, they dont understand the various serious scenarios of privacy requirement a user might want. They think as if only kids & college-brigade are the biggest users of android. Cant blame the devs coz most people (the whole world taken as one) dont care about privacy, they dont practise privacy much in their own lives, they just arent aware enough of it.
    Ask ANY dev how to block/modify shamshung, gugle, mi & hoawai core internal privacy intrusive apps and files & they answer "oh, im afraid thats no longer possible because beginning android 10 partition system has changed bla bla bla & also OEMs are making it more difficult to modify system partitions etc. and they have started taking complete control of their devices bla bla bla". So in other words, all these young devs are able to do is add new skins to android and find out rooting solutions. I do appreciate the rooting solutions (practically just one proper available-magisk) the devs provide apart from that they really cant do much apart than provide "debloated roms", NOT EVEN Lineage COULD BLOCK/MODIFY Privacy Intrusive Core System Apps beginning Android 9 Pie!
    Its SHOCKING how the OEMs and software giants have total disregard for Users Privacy....users have become absolute puppets in their hands. Nobody can drag them to court because they make users ACCEPT their Privacy Policies WITHOUT giving users an option to use the devices (That User Purchased) otherwise, unless the users allow themsevles to be followed everywhere. So its like Take It OR Leave It scene. Then our employers and peers and friends say "hey I just sent you the receipt/doc on gmail/whatapp/telegram/one drive /gdrive..what? you are not on gmail?.. oops but our company uses g-services bla bla bla". Men will be men no mattter how much order & tech is brought in. All the rules are being broken at the top while being made to look like alls fair at the user-end lol.
    What had started out back then as Developers & FREE-MINDED Users' Enthusiasm to bypass Gugle & OEMs iron fisted regimen on smart devices (more for the sake of human e-rights) has just seemed to have fizzed out as most devs are just busy projecting their new android skins & other tit-bit programs so they get a good job with some OEM or software firms, NO dev or user dares challenge the Software Giants & OEMs in court anymore about Privacy & Trackers as they get purchased or obsoleted & isolated by the Software Giants , OEMs, Peers & the whole Trillion Dollar Software Industry Machinery. In the last 10 years like everyone is busier WORKING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY FOR A SOFTWARE COMPANY or Some Electronic OEM Giant. Everyones Hooked on to some electronic device in one way or the oher.
    I'm not complaining about a persons choice of livelihood or lifestyle or need for electronic gadgets but I see young kids just hooked on to big screens and smart devices in front of their faces 24/7 without real-world experiences, I'm just Shocked at how EASY it was for Software & Electronic Giants to sway aside individuals personal rights & privacy to take over this world almost unchallenged. Its no less shocking (& even traumatic ) than Thaliban! Did you notice the difference in the movies that were produced 15 years ago and now? Its just UNREAL & FICTIONAL software generated stuff now or mixed with real & unreal.
    Yeah, I know what u guys gonna say- " I need to visit the Psychiatrist! ". Thanks.

    Samsung also? Do you have an example? I mean except the fact that they have to use ARM CPUs and other "third-party" components which renders their chipsets wide-open to whatever vulnerabilities our governments decide to design into the processors...

    if google does, it's fine - not. that's why I have named some brands sold in EU and US market. it's just stupid mind setting which leads to nonsense like Trumps Huawei ban.

    I have explained reasons for data collection here

    user data is the new oil, they feed their computers for predicting everything. BlackRock is the biggest player here. They own the world already, why they shouldn't own your data... nothing is for free, every f** app is interested in user data. they give you something you benefit from, you give them something back. join discussion here

    User data is not the "new" oil - your village priest, teacher, lawyer, doctor, psychiatrist, banker etc. already know everything there is interesting about you. If you went to church in 1900 and confessed to your pastor, what do you think used to happen with that information? Or if all the villagers above happen to have Wednesday pub meetings, what do you think they're talking about? Or why do you think our elites used to send highly-trained loyalist Jesuits in every country before an eventual invasion? Information gathering and convergence is nothing new and it's certainly nothing European-Americans started/invented.

    "Vulnerability by Design in Mobile Network Security"

    "The digital cellular mobile network GSM (Global System Mobile), commonly called 2G, was standardised by European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) during the 1980s. Weak security was purposely built into the system because various European governments requested the ability to deactivate or break the encryption on the radio link in order to eavesdrop on mobile phone conversations. At the introduction of 2G GSM in 1991, MNOs (Mobile Network Operators) outside Europe were forced to use weak encryption, whereas European operators could use relatively strong encryption. For that reason, a strong and a weak set of cryptographic algorithms were designed. Parts of the GSM 2G standards were kept confidential and only distributed to industry partners under non-disclosure agreements."


    What European-Americans are doing is what Europeans have been doing all along, so one shouldn't worry about some shady shell companies in the style of Tyrell Corp. or Weyland Yutani - but the elites in your own village/country and the very culture that nourishes them. "If you point one finger at somebody, three will point at you."

    After all, for some magical reasons, it's never us that get sprayed with dioxins or silently "disappeared" from our ancestral lands, right?

    I keep my downloads and everything in a pen drive , keeping the Internal storage empty all the time, only transferring files from OTG to Internal Storage when needed then quickly reboot to recovery and delete cache partition everyday :p
    That's actually not a bad idea...to keep the device as "stateless" as possible and to store all user data on a separate storage. This would, at least, minimize data loss in the event of technical issues with the device...I think I will try this

    thanks I didnt know that but I also use sdmaid to cleanup app junk & system junk every now n then.
    Its not the companies We ar eworried about its the elements who use the companies to get to us thats bothersome, anyway you wouldn't know the mayhem unless you lived where I live :-/
