@tuxdevices @martijnbraam Thanks for sharing. Hardware-wise, I would argue that the Pinephone is a bit more free than the devices supported by Replicant as it runs a stable and free bootloader.

However, one important aspect neglected here is security. Software-wise, #replicant only offers vastly outdated Android versions with tons of security holes in their stable branch. On the other hand, #postmarketos offers recent software.

See also my old mid-2019 article on that:

Why is Replicant so out of date? How are these alternatives going to be true replacements if they are not up to date, at least from a security viewpoint.
