I’m looking into installing a more secure Linux distribution on my OnePlus 6T. I’m hoping to find a distro with sandboxing capacity so that I can still run some Google and Whatsapp services without opening the door to my contacts.
Is EndeavourOS planning a mobile version? That would be beyond fantastic.
I wouldn’t hold your breath for that if I was you.
Considering the amount of work and the complexity of making it work on the most common telephone chips out there, I think the possibility of us releasing that is very small.
But who knows what the future brings? I would’ve laughed in your face if you asked me four years ago to start running an entire distro. And look at us now…
New projects start when someone takes up a challenge/idea and tries to bring it to life.
You guys took on a challenge and brought it into life.
Linux on phones needs a lot of work and it needs a group of people passionate about it to bring it to life. These people need to have knowledge to work on arm stuff too (because all these phones have arm processors)
I know. I saw someone installed Arch on their smartphones and wondered how doable it would be for EndeavourOS to do that. In the meantime, I’m leaning toward Graphene. It’s difficult finding a mobile platform that has sandboxing.
