Hi, I ordered a Fairphone 2.
Because I search for a fair alternative in almost every direction, this includes reducing
the dependency from large companies like Google.
Thus, I would expect sustainability also for the software…
Unfortunately I find it hard to get details about this.
I saw somewhere that the phones are rooted, which is good, and in the shop, there is a statement in that Android 5.1 is used.
(BTW, I really had trouble to find these specifications. Strangely there is NO hint for technical specifications of FP2 at fairphone’ss home page).
But I am really wondering whether I can/should use the original Android provided for FP2 or switch to CyanogenMod.
I saw some discussion here:
But what I really would like to have is a FAQ entry regarding the question whether and how I can deal with CyanogenMod with FP2.
So here are my requests:
- Please add a section regarding what sustainable development means for you regarding software
** OS version(s), updates, rooted OS, …
- Please add easy to find links to technical details and the stuff above.
- Please say something regarding CyanogenMod. At least in the FAQ.
In any case, if somebody could elaborate on using CyanogenMod with FP2 now, that would be very helpful. I would like to use CyanogenMod the moment I have FP2 in hands unless tis doesn’t make sense. Any hint would help.
