No-Google SmartphoneI’ve been using dumbphones for awhile now, but I started to miss some smartphone features.

Then a friend of mine mentioned LineageOS again. I decided to take the plunge… And I’m glad I did!

It IS possible to have a relatively private smartphone without all the Googley madness – even in this day and age.

But it does take a bit of time, patience, and some technical know-how.

Note that I don’t walk through the entire installation process here since it’s particular to your specific phone…

But at least you’ll be headed in the right direction!

That’s all, folks!

    LineageOS sounds interesting. Any way to mirror your LineageOS screen on an hdmi monitor/TV in a wired way? I have a display with an hdmi/MHL input but most phones dropped MHL output in favor of wireless solutions.

      Hmm, I dunno. It probably still depends on what the phone itself supports – at least to some extent. Of course, if you root the phone and play around with it, you can do darn near anything, but you’d have to be a real linux commando!
