Hi, first, the OS is a great achievement! Our couple presents where pixels for each other and I setup GrapheneOS for both a few weeks ago. Two remarks from an non-developer with some but limited understanding:
- it would be good if there was a monthly cumulative update channel. The regular (and slow) updates are rather testing the patience and I could not with good conscience drive my parents to it...it would never ever be updated....which does not make it safer.
- please add some instructions on installing (bloody) WhatsApp with backup. I am fine with Signal but others... Aside from temporary access of play services to SMS, for restore play services needs (temporary) access to contacts (or the switch for misbehaving apps or both, I am not sure anymore) as it otherwise does not recognise an existing account to load backup from Google drive. I spent some time to get there... For newcomers this is unnecessarily frustrating given that the flash procedure through browser is otherwise outstanding.
