General discussions about the entire Android ecosystem.
Use common sense.
No piracy. Period. Don’t care about your beliefs.
No gray-area or illegal exploitation such as bypassing Google FRP, permanently locked bootloader, rooting un-rootable devices, bypassing lockscreen, etc.
No sharing APKs or related executable software. See rule 4 for more details.
If APKs are shared, they must be done from well-known sources such as GitHub, Google Play, and F-Droid. No direct downloads or sketchy file sharing websites. This does not mean advertise your software here. Do so in the !email@example.com community.
No Android v. iPhone discussions. We also do not tolerate slander or bashing of both devices and their respective ecosystems.
No shilling. We will call you out on it and take action. You can calmly and respectfully make suggestions, even to other devices or ecosystems like iPhone. Nothing more than that.
No discussion/promotion of controversial or scam custom OS’s or companies such as CalyxOS (Calyx Institute), PureOS (Purism), etc.
No discussion/promotion of controversial or scam devices such as Librem (Purism), Freedom Phone, etc.
No discussions of devices or software that deviate or mismarket themselves from Android such as PinePhone, Librem, Ubuntu Touch, etc. These are not Android devices and are not in any way related to Android.
No custom OS promotions. Discussions about known OS’s are okay such as GrapheneOS, ProtonAOSP, etc. Though these discussions would be better in !firstname.lastname@example.org.
These rules are subject to change at any point in time with or without user notice.
