My need is a bit niche, but I've been looking more towards GrapheneOS as it seems like it may solve the problem for me.
I want to fully dumb down my smartphone to the extent that I don't have a play store or a browser. Essentially, I would load apps only through adb. Ofc GrapheneOs is only supported properly on the Pixel series. To unlock the bootloader on my smartphone is a mission I'm not bothered with in order to root it, which may also solve my problem. This is why I'm looking into GrapheneOS.
A few questions:
- Is the Pixel 5 still worth getting at this point for GrapheneOS?
- Can I easily delete any app I want, including all the app stores and browsers?
- If I end up using an older Pixel that is no longer supported properly, what are the negative implications that I really need to worry about?
