So I very much want to go out and buy a pixel just to get Grapheneos as most devices these days are getting more and more locked down and have many other privacy issues.
The only thing stopping me from just doing it is the apps I use and I want to know if there's alternatives for the apps/mods I currently use daily and have for the past few years.
I'll list some apps/things I use and would like to know if there are any alternatives that will work with Grapheneos or if they are features that are or may be supported in the future. You'll notice the main issue here is they use root and afaik Grapheneos won't support root anytime soon which I find odd as I having root on my manjaro or any Linux install for that matter isn't frowned upon and personally I'd rather take a hit on security for more freedom. I did see a grapheneos rom where someone pre rooted it with a magisk patched boot img but haven't looked too much into it.
Anyway here are the apps:
First off AdAway: I use this over others because it directly edits the host file and doesn't have a constant VPN (work around) or service running. It blocks ads within apps and is kinda just there as I hardly notice it also I have a bunch of domains blocked ect.
Call recording: I heavily rely on call recording and this is a must have feature for me. I saw some posts asking about this but the post/op was deleted.
Tasker: I use tasker to automatically toggle WiFi on/off depending on if I'm working/out or not.
Themeing: I'm currently on Android 10 but I'm not familiar with newer versions as I've been out of the loop for a long while now and im not sure what the state of themeeing is on newer versions. currently I theme apps like discord,Twitter, SoundCloud, email, ect using swift installer I am currently on an amoled device and have grown accustomed to pitch black themed apps. I feel like this is probably going to be limited if I move over to Grapheneos.
Fng (fluid navigation gestures):I use this app to hide the navigation bar and replace it with gestures instead. Problem is it needs root to accomplish this.
I also use naptime to force doze in certain situations to save battery and it's something I could live without but I'm curious what the state of battery saving is with graphene is I'd assume right off the bat it's better than stock Android. I also use acc (advanced charging controller) to stop my device from charging with it gets to a certain percentage.
Any help is appreciated and thanks in advance.
I'm assuming the answers are going to be something like Grapheneos is for privacy so it won't support these things but I'd thought I'd ask and see before I either start looking for a better room for my 6t or a good rom on a new phone.
