How does Replicant install differently than other custom Roms?

Added by ware akaunto 11 months ago

I read the Replicant installation guide, but it's kind of difficult. I already have TWRP installed on my device, so I'm going to use that to install Replicant. Can't install it?

Yes, you can use TWRP. Just put the zip file of the system image somewhere accessible by TWRP (sdcard or internal memory). Then ask TWRP to install that zip. Also, better clean your data and cache partitions before that.

Didn't know that this is working, too. Is it less secure to use TWRP than Replicant recovery?

Well, according to Wikipedia website .apks are not libre software:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Team_Win_Recovery_Project

So I looked for my Device (Note II) and I can see it has up-to-date imgs:
https://dl.twrp.me/t03g/

However, when I surfed on the source code I found it's 3 years old:
https://github.com/TeamWin/android_device_samsung_t03g

To sum up, as far as security and privacy are concern it's not as reliable as Replicant recovery.
