How is it? Do only relay on f-droid and downloading the apks of apps you need?

It pisses me off that to be able to download stuff of the google playstore i need a fucking account.
>>
Making a throwaway account is so hard.

>oh no Google will see my cantonese dickgirl cartoon fetish in my search history
>>
Those who use android that way usually end up with loads of root hijacks!
>>

I don't have google. I download my apps from f-droid, aptiode or raccoon (desktop, you still need an account). Apptrack to check whether updates are available.
>>
There's apps that won't run if you don't have Play Services, but I think there's a way around it.

Anyway I'm too lazy, I just use a throwaway account.

This, I'm currently using a throwaway account with fake info.

>>
>>52246889

>my laptop runs gingerbread
And you call that piece of shit a laptop?
>>
>>52251320
yes. it's a thinkpad x1 hybrid that runs win7 and can switch to android at any time. i get up to 17 hours of use when it is using android. between 10 and 11 if i'm doing nothing but watching movies the whole time.
>>
>>52246776
It really helps if you're rooted to prevent some apps from not working if you don't have Google play services, other than that everything else you may need can be downloaded through f droid, aptoide or blackmart.
>>
>>52246776
The only 2 apps that made me keep google stuff is snapchat and my mobile bank (both require play services to log in)
>>
>>52246776
Stupid question: Why shouldn't i use my main Google account? I don't even use that account on desktop but just wondering. I already have my Moto E connected there
>>
>>52246776
Okay. If you need apps from the play store then there's always raccon. But some apps do require fucking play services otherwise they won't run.
>>
>>52251952
Try NOGAPPS Project
>>
>>52251969
Interesting. I'll look into that.
>>
>>52246776
I'm currently trying out GMScore. battery life while the phone is unused is better.

the only apps I downloaded from the FakeStore are Signal, an app for my city's bus schedule, fitnotes to track workouts and shuttle for music.
from f-droid I'm using chanu, Firefox and a file manager.
using the aosp email app.
>>
>>52251969
Most of that is discontinued. I found
http://forum.xda-developers.com/android/apps-games/app-microg-gmscore-floss-play-services-t3217616
which also has gcm and so on. but you'll need xposed on cm for that.That probably sounds like a retarted question but is cm prerooted?
>>
>>52249003
You need to use apps that don't need JewgleGayServices
>>
>>52252128
I don't know but i guess it's not
>>
>>52246865
How do you get a root hijack if you're not on public wifi?
>>
>>52252243
You don't unless you're downloading free apps from shady stores like aptoide or don't have an adblocker for apps and browsing.
>>
>>52246776
currently using f-droid and comparing chanu. clover, and overchan. So far so good, hasn't given me problems
>>
>>52246834
>>52249049
Lmao Google still knows it's you
>>
Who the fuck cares
>>
>>52252642
People who care about privacy?
>>
>>52252714
why do you care if google laughs at you because of your chink porn fetish
If you are ashamed of something then maybe you should think about it
