Do you guys sell pre-installed phones?

Added by Alex Vong about 5 years ago

I am newbie. My old phone is not working and I want to buy a new one. I just wonder if you guys sell phones per-installed with Replicant OS?

The system is called Replicant, not Replicant OS and I am not aware of any shop selling devices pre-installed with Replicant.

Thanks for the reply. I think I will buy a Samsung S3 and install Replicant then.

Is there a way to verify that a install of Replicant on a phone is the same as the files downloaded from this place, from my understanding you check and verify that the files is signed by the correct key and then install, thats not possible after.

I must say it was really a quick procedure to install it.
But I can imagine that not everybody want to or know how to do this.

IIRC this is done automatically by recovery when installing the zip, see the hashes in META-INF/MANIFEST.MF.
I don't know of any procedure to check after the installation, on the running system (e.g. the contents on /system) but I'm sure one could write a script for that purpose!

I'm selling phones with replicant pre-installed: https://redmine.replicant.us/boards/3/topics/9147

Right now I have a mint condition Galaxy S3 available. Can get more if there is demand for it.
