On this week's episode, we discuss how to overcome some of the challenges in building your own image of Android to use on any device, particularly where security is a concern. We're excited to be joined by one of the developers behind one such project that's made headlines recently, Gabriel of GrapheneOS.
01:02 - Are we talking about custom ROMs?
02:51 - What does GrapheneOS do that AOSP doesn't?
12:04 - Why can't I install a custom OS on my existing Android device?
19:15 - How can I get apps to work on my custom Android-based OS?
28:26 - Why are Android update guarantees still so lackluster?
You can learn more about GrapheneOS at grapheneos.org, and you can try it out on your Pixel device with their easy-to-use web installer.
