I want as little Google as possible on my Fairphone 4!

…and when will Iodé be ready fpr FP4?

Only beta versions are on the Play Store, see the README for how to join the beta.
Or, since this is a topic about de-googling, you can install it via F-Droid too :smirk:

Florisboard lets you swipe across the spacebar to move the cursor around, which is a much more elegant solution than arrow buttons, and I really wish AnySoft implemented that feature.

Also in OpenBoard

Florisboard is not usable in german. at least not for me. because of dictionary and auto correction.

january at the earliest. but i expect at least february.

I don’t need a dictionary (it’s in my head!), but I need a Swiss German keyboard :wink:

you’ll have to try installing it and checking if it offers the layout you need.

Hi, thank you very much for the list.

How exactly did you uninstall them?
Because I haven’t rooted my fp4 yet (is there a way?) I cannot log in to root over adb.

Have you found a way to root it, or did you just disabled them from the settings?
Or am I missing something else?

@pseu
Try this:
adb pm uninstall --user 0 name.of.package

Thank you so much.

Works like a charm.

To also give something back, here is a one liner to execute in Linux (maybe also other UNIX-like, idk) systems to uninstall all the apps at once:

xargs -0 -n 1 adb uninstall --user 0 < <(tr \\n \\0 <apps.lst)

where apps.lst is just the copied list from Stanzi into a file (note that there need to be linebreaks in between the packages).

Did anyone had success using LineageOS 23 dialer? (Lineage OS Phone 23.0 (Android 11+) APK Download by LineageOS - APKMirror)
My phone rings, but I can’t answer calls just rings with no permanent notification (I can make calls though) - and notifications are allowed for the app and it is set as default.

Solved by changing to Simple Dialer.

Hi,

By any chance did you manage to remove the search box ?

Regards

Only by using a third Party launcher

With LawnChair in f-droid store…

Thanks to you and the previous answer,

Hoping this get solved in future update to allow us to remove it…

Unfortunately, I am running again into similar issues with android.intent.action.CREATE_DOCUMENT :thinking:
Mainly while exporting settings from apps (andOTP, AntennaPod…)

Anybody experiencing this as well? Any ideas what the issue might be?

EDIT: It seems, that a lot of App rely on the DocumentsUI app from Google and alternative file managers like Material Files cannot replace some of their function.
I had therefore to reinstall the original App using

adb shell cmd package install-existing com.google.android.documentsui

If you want to use backup functions of your apps you cannot remove this app from your phone. I’d be glad to be taught differently.

as indicated above this could be a general A11 issue, so did you read this https://www.reddit.com/r/Android/comments/j3zgmm/managing_files_in_the_androiddata_folder_on/

Hi,

By any chance did you encounter DNS issue in 4G after removing theses packages ?

I currently do not have any DNS resolver when I’m in 4G,

Everything works perfectly in wifi

EDIT : Seems like there’s no default DNS server for 4G or something like that, using blokada VPN allow me to use 4G correctly ? I don’t really understand where the problem is
