you are greatly underestimating how hard it is to make a whole custom chip, and if tensor was truly custom I doubt whether roms would exist for it and in my opinion I would much rather have tensor be based on exynos than be a bad attempt at a custom chip


for Android being bloated you could just use degoogled lineageos or grapheneos
The reason I dislike Android is because I have a fully degoogled , rooted BLOD Nexus 5X with microG (LineageOS.. 17? 18? I don't remember.. android 10.), so I know what good AOSP can bring, considering that phone cannot even boot on stock software. Full android is overly bloated even on modern hardware.

But really, it can't be that hard. I'm pretty sure Tesla just designed custom silicon for their supercomputers, Google has significantly more capital. I don't actually know much about Tensor Gen 2, but Gen 1 made several compromises that were unacceptable, at least for the Pro models, in my opinion. It's only an issue because of stock android. Android 12 and 13 are very bad compared to 10 and 11 imo.

They could just.. not design a bad chip. Ya know, not release something before verifying it works.. maybe it's not on the engineers, maybe it's because of corporate crunch like with Cyberpunk. Either way I'm butthurt I spent $1000 on this thing when my Nexus 5X would have worked fine for a few more years. Really got me with the new camera sensors lol. (Edit for context: my daily driver was a Pixel 4XL but it bricked before Pixel 6 launch. I was using the Nexus for a month, which I had to unbrick after my Pixel 4XL bricked)

Google could invest in American industry and sell ethically produced phones, but I don't think they give a **** about any of that, only about making profit, hence why they are on Pixel 7, and release the same device twice a year. I'm simply done supporting the industry. It's all so wasteful and unethical, too much so for the rate of innovation. Apple silicon has left every other chip manufacturer including Intel in the dust. And their chips don't overheat when ambient temperature goes above 30°C like Tensor does. Google needs to design their own silicon to have a chance at lasting much longer. Nobody buys their **** anyway, except for us nerds.

Since its been google's policy to make AOSP buildable for all of their current hardware, I don't see why there would be any issue. Now if it was some OTHER hardware vendor with custom hardware, then I would see your point.

    Disclaimer: I am responsible for LineageOS on the Pixel 6 and 7 series.

    The way Pixels are designed, they can't boot a recovery image with "fastboot boot". In turn, you can't get TWRP, unlike say a OnePlus or Samsung where TWRP is still viable. IMHO still beats OnePlus 10's locked-behind-credentials MSM tools tho.

    While I'd love to have TWRP on Pixels, it's simply not an option anymore. Hence why Lineage Recovery is the only option for LOS on Pixel devices, and other Pixel ROMs are flashed via fastboot versus recovery.

    Why? This is a pixel, it has fastboot.
    Twrp is way faster for anything, installing a custom rom, magisk, etc... Plus you don't need a pc every time

    Like the title says will our devices be able to get this too?

    You're joking right? Fam...if you're out and about and bork with twrp. Or accidentally wipe your phone and internal, it happens....then you'll SOL and if like me on vacation a few years back and my girlfriend booted into twrp and wiped my phone trying to get back into android, DON'T ASK ME HOW it SUCKED. 🤣⚰️
    BUT...if you bork with fastboot you're already attached to the PC.
    So? If you wipe internal storage while out you're a moron who shouldn't be rooting anyway. Don't let anyone else use a rooted phone even if they're someone close. I'm sorry for your situation, but next tike maybe a

    I guess that's more a reminder to do a full system backup then a reason not to use twrp. Doesn't it have a nand backup thing?

    wait are you working on the real official one? i thought it was npjohnson
    Well I do work with npjohnson, but am much lower profile than him.
