@chrisrg I can not get my hand around the fact that an instruction lacks precision with respect to such core details like boot vs. recovery. However, I flashed the recovery.img to the boot_a and boot_b slots and - nothing, just stuck at sony logo. So ****ty.

Maybe you entered command wrong?

For myself I would flash boot with the recovery image just to the slot I was on when plugging in the device for fastboot mode. Tried it now and it's fine.

fastboot flash boot iode-3.0-20220601-pioneer-recovery.img

Then unplug, hold vol down and power to boot into recovery, re-plug...

Hang on, maybe better to flash the recovery to both slots, I'll try again. Back soon!

EDIT: I have no problem flashing recovery whichever way it's done,. Just the OS is not installing, but I think that's a separate problem because I have a more recent rom on here at the moment.

So, in summary you should be fine following iode instructions using the flash boot_a and boot_b commands

@chrisrg Thanks for your patience, got it sorted out. Just repeated everything, got some problems to get into recovery mode, but finally it went through, I can confirm, that the recovery image has to be flashed to bbot_a and boot_b, recovery and boot are the same with a/b devices.
Any advice on how to root with newer magisk versions?

is the "{Ad/Malware/Data leak}-blocker: iodé" open source. If yes could you please send me a link to the source code?
Thanks

Since iodé is a derivative of LOS (as stated in the thread title), it's supposed to come with LOS's features and faults. And since it seems to be common knowledge (I never took the chance to corrupt my system by putting part of it onto a sd card) that the "adoption" doesn't work reliably - you won't gain anything from iodé in this respect.
(I'd like to be corrected if I'm wrong.)

Will it still communicate with some google servers in background for the gps or the precise location or other stuff ?

I am asking that because on my xperia X suzu I've tried to ungoogle a lineage os ( no Gapps, and I've changed all servers I could ), but when I run logcat I am still reading some logs that show communication to google server, may be some ping ( blocked with AF Firewall except one )... but I do not want this too.

PS : I am actually configurating a sony XA2 cause I need UBS-C, I hesitate between lineage os ( so iodéOs may be) and sailfish ( linux based one ).

Yes French.
There are no communication with google servers unless you activate microG push notifications during the setup. Then it will depend on what you do on your phone of course, which app youstall, etc.

In all cases: the iodé app monitors everything, so you'll be able to check exactly what happens on

I have adopted iodé os on my XA2 pioneer, the firewall is cool... and yes in some apps it stay some connection to google api and else, but you have to authorize it... for example discord is working very well without any authorisation to google stuffs, Curiosity Stream too.


( I've failed for FL Studio installation.
I've bought it in 2020, and since my xperia X suzu on lineage os without Gapps I can't use it anymore.
That's really stupid because I've bought a XA2 pioneer in order to use it with the Rode AI-Micro.
I've recieved the little soundcard 2 days ago.
Yesterday I've solder some atenuator filter to plug my electroaccoustic guitar on electret lavalier input of the USB-C souncard.
I also build an electret microphone ( all from scratch for free and it's working so well ).
Near professional recording quality with a really small interface ( 69€ FPC on Digit Photo ) and DIY from scratch stuffs... it's just amazing.
Except the Rode apps, because you can't export your recorded files. I've switched to "Lexis Audio Editor". The free version is amazing, like a small audacity with all basic needed function, vrop, trim, normalize, cut ect... wav, m4a, FLAC ect... )

About FL studio : if you really want try to make it run, you should take a logcat and open an issue at microg issue tracker on github.

Happy to see iodé can be useful to musicians ;-)

    Introduction

    iodéOS is a privacy-focused operating system powered by LineageOS and based on the Android mobile platform. iodéOS aims at protecting the user's privacy with a built-in adblocker and by freeing the smartphone from snitches.

    The objectives in the conception of this ROM are threefold:

    1. To keep the stability and security level of LineageOS, by minimizing the modifications made to the system. Apart the system modifications required by the adblocker, we mainly only added a few useful options commonly found in other custom ROMs, made some cosmetic changes, modified a few default settings to prevent data leaks to Google servers.
    2. To ease a quick adoption of this ROM by new users. We especially target users that are concerned by the protection of their privacy, but are not reluctant to still use inquisitive apps like Google ones. We thus included MicroG as well as a coherent set of default apps, and simplified the initial setup of the system. Particularly, an initialization of MicroG has been made with GCM notifications allowed by default, a privacy-friendly network location provider (DéjàVu) pre-selected, as well as Nominatim Geocoder.
    3. To provide a new and powerful way of blocking ads, malwares, data leaks of all kinds to many intrusive servers. We are developing an analyzer, tightly integrated into the system, that captures all DNS requests and network traffic, as well as a user interface (the iodé app). Compared to some other well-known adblockers, this has the advantages of:
      • Avoiding to lock the VPN for that use. You can even use another adblocker that uses VPN technology alongside our blocker.
      • Being independent of the kind of DNS server used by the system or set by an independent app: classical DNS on UDP port 53 or any other one, DNS over TLS (DoT), DNS over HTTPS (DoH), ..., as we capture the DNS requests before they are transmitted to the system function that emits the DNS request. What we do not support, is DoH when it is natively built into applications, i.e. when an app communicates directly with a DoH server, without asking name resolution to the system. It would require to decrypt HTTPS packets between such an app and the DoH server, which may create a big security hole.
      • Precisely mapping DNS requests and network packets to the Android apps that emitted (or received) them.
      • Deciding which apps have a filtered network usage (by default, all apps), and which ones can communicate with blacklisted servers.
      Since its first versions, we added many features to the iodé blocker: several levels of protection, fine-grained control over the hosts that should be blocked or authorized, displaying statistics on a map to see the quantity of data exchanged to which countries, clearing statistics... We are actively developing the blocker, and new functionalities will be regularly added.

    Features

    Changes in LineageOS to prevent data leaks:

    • Default DNS server: Google's DNS replaced by Quad9's 'unblocked' servers in all parts of the system.
    • A-GPS: patches to avoid leaking personnal information like IMSI to supl server.
    • Captive portal login: connectivitycheck.gstatic.com replaced by captiveportal.kuketz.de for connectivity check.
    • Dialer: Google default option replaced by OpenStreetMap for phone number lookup.

    Pre-installed apps:

    We included many useful default apps, but our choice cannot suit everyone; so we added the possibility to remove them. It can be done at the end of the phone setup, or at any time by going to Parameters -> Apps & Notifications -> Preinstalled apps.

    • MicroG core apps: GmsCore, GsfProxy, FakeStore.
    • NLP backends for MicroG : DejaVuNLPBackend (default), MozillaNLPBackend, AppleNLPBackend, RadioCellsNLPBackend, Nominatim Geocoder.
    • App stores : FDroid (with F-Droid Privileged Extension) and Aurora Store.
    • Browser: our own fork of Firefox (with Qwant as default search engine, many other ones added, telemetry disabled, parts of telemetry code removed) instead of Lineage’s default browser Jelly.
    • SMS: QKSMS instead of Lineage's default SMS app.
    • Email: p≡p (Pretty Easy Privacy).
    • Camera: our own fork of Open Camera, with a few tweaks.
    • Maps/navigation: Magic Earth GPS & Navigation (the only one free but not open source).
    • Keyboard: OpenBoard instead of AOSP keyboard.
    • PDF: Pdf Viewer Plus.
    • Personnal notes: Carnet.
    • {Ad/Malware/Data leak}-blocker: iodé.
    • News: to keep users informed about our developments, as well as a FAQ.
    • Meteo: Geometric Weather.

    Pre-included FDroid repository:

    The apps that we tweak or develop (microG services, the browser based on Firefox, the News app, Open Camera ...) are available through a repository that we included in FDroid (check the "Apps for iodéOS" category). For this purpose and to avoid name conflicts of some apps, we also had to make a few changes in FDroid.

    Useful options from other custom ROMs:
    • Smart charging (disables charging when a given level is reached, to protect battery health).
    • Fingerprint vibration toggle.
    • Swipe down to clear all in recent apps (Android 10 only).

    • 07/02/2023 (build 20230131):
      • Blocker:
        • Improved blocking settings. You can now choose 'Standard' blocking (ads, trackers, malwares, etc) or 'Reinforced' blocking (same objective but more extensive), and then select additional categories.
        • The 'Porn' category has been extended to a wider 'Sensitive content' one, that also includes fake news, gambling, drugs, piracy, torrent..., with mainly child protection in mind.
        • The 'Extreme' category has been removed, as it is now part of the reinforced blocking.
        • Improved blocking lists. We merge several acknowledged and up-to-date sources, and have diversified our sources to produce more complete lists. The standard list has however been reduced a bit, to avoid as much as possible interference with apps expected behavior.
      • Added a new network location provider: Local NLP Backend. It is an improved version of the DéjàVu NLP backend which was already available in iodéOS. Like DéjàVu, it builds a local database connecting localizations learned from other NLP backends and apps using GPS, and mobile antennas/Wifi; but also has an active mode (not preselected) that can trigger GPS requests. To configure it: Settings -> System -> microG -> Location modules

    Hello guys,

    I have some trouble to make the GPS work.
    It says i have no GPS signal.

    Maybe i have to move a bit so it detect more antennas ?

    Same situation here...
    No problem with gps on my device. You may try to delete assistance data with an app like gpstest.
