I feel terrible asking this question as it's essentially blasphemy and goes even against my own ideals, but I'm going to ask it anyway, hopefully there won't be too much kickback.

Is there any way to use the proprietary software for the GPU? I understand that presently graphics rendering is done through software rendering and there is potentially the Lima driver in the distant future for new releases but in the meantime CPU rendering is just painfully slow.

Additionally, Is there an officially recommended way to remove default apps, mail, browser etc.

I don't think you'll get many folks here wanting to help you do that. Maybe ask in the IRC room and someone will say "send me a PM"? It won't be me as I have no idea, other than to say install another custom ROM.

Totally understand and agree to be honest. :) Though I'm going to stick with Replicant. Will just live with the graphics issue.

Hi Adam,

How is going? Are you using S3? To be honest i am going back to Replicant after long break, previously was using SG S3 and got issue like you said a little annoying. After some time phone died due to normal usage.
Found on internet used SG S2, i read on this forum that due to smaller resolution of screen, CPU should work better will test it if phone i will receive is working correctly.
