Omnirom??

If we are including both replicant and cyanogennmod then perhaps we could also include omnirom which is somewhere between them.

I really dislike Android and have not tried the others so didn't vote. Might try some of the others over the upcoming holiday season.

Thumbs up

Geeksphone rocks CyanogenMod too!!!

But, upon installing fff-OS it took away the options to quickly and easily install the other OS's!!!! Then I made the mistake of playing with Fff-OS's developer tools and it has (allowing for many settings at once) locked\borked up the phone, haven't played with it since but the phone has good support plus downloaded the CyanogenMod installers and should be able to reinstall(?) (would be helpful if I could scroll tho!)

TAILS !!!

Sorry if this repeats someone's reply and sorry if tails is mentionned in an other entry, but i was browsing distributions and privacy solution and can't see mention of tails... how weird...

this makes me think linuxquestions.org is not so independant that i was believing...

too bad...

As this is the Mobile Distribution category, Tails would not be a suitable addition.

This category is for Phone/Tablet Distributions. We had a Live category in the past, but it was replaced some years ago.
