Remove Google from my FP3

i know it says lineageOS there, which confuses me, because we are talking about fp3 google version. so am i right that i can use that launcher for my fp3 google-android9 version?

Yes, at least it worked when I tried it.

Hello @javiz87
I have a good news for you: there is a 100% unGoogled OS currently in development named /e/OS. It’s a ready to use OS with it’s own AppStore with + 80000 Apps included FOSS Apps and all default App (email, calendar, sms, weather, note, contacts etc…) has been also unGoogled. It’s name is /e/OS.
Here is the post about the development :
and here is the website talking about /e/Os :
I hope this is useful :slight_smile:



I have installed /e/OS and it was quite easy!! (with a Debian PC).

I am so exited to get out the big G out of my phone. I will wait some time to tell you how it works for me.

Thank you very much for the information!!


All pleasure is mine :slight_smile:

Well, I have be using /e/ OS and I admit is quite good. You have interesting apps in the alternatives app stores while most of Play Store apps works on my PF3. There are a few that doesn’t work but are very few and it is not a problem.

The problems with screen (I think I have had bad lucky and the hardware is defective) are still there and that’s the big deal since I bought it, but the /e/ OS works better than stock OS. Now, the phone runs perfect, no issues founded (at the beggining I had a lot).

I recently discover an alternative to Youtube in F-droid. The app is: NewPipe.
I dont use youtube, but the website I used to check (Invidious) has stopped.

Using NewPipe or the now stopped Invidious are surely preferred over using Youtube directly, although the videos still come from G00gle servers, so they still get your connection metadata+info about the videos you watch. At least you avoid the other trackers on their page, so it’s a progress for sure. :+1:t3:
