Replicant 9.0

A port of Replicant to Android 9 is being worked on.

See the Porting_Replicant_to_Android_9 wiki page for more in depth technical details and progress.

Potentially supported devices:
  • The work on Replicant 9 is made with the Galaxy SIII (i9300), so it should be supported.
  • The Galaxy Note II (N7100) is very similar to the Galaxy SIII but requires a bit more work to be supported. So they could probably be added if someone steps up to do the work.
  • The Galaxy SIII 4G (I9305) and Galaxy Note II 4G (N7105) could also be added if work is done to add support for their modem in Replicant.
  • We don't know yet how much work is needed to add support for the other devices that are currently supported by Replicant 6.0, so we don't know yet if they will be compatible with Replicant 9 or not. We would need to find or get more information on the upstream status of theses devices before having a rough idea.
  • It will be easier to add support for devices using a mainline kernel, so if they meet the requirements set for Replicant 9, they could be added as well if someone steps up to do the work.

Replicant 6.0

Most problematic usability issues that need to be fixed:
  • Some SIM cards are not recognized in Replicant 6.0 while they were recognized in Replicant 4.2 This bug is probably fixed since Replicant 6.0 0004 RC1, but it needs more people testing it to know for sure.
  • Some applications from f-droid do not run because of graphics issues. This is fixed since Replicant 6.0 0004 RC1.
  • In some circumstance the sound quality in calls is really bad (see the bug #1773 for more details).
Most problematic Freedom issues that are being fixed:
  • The F-droid stock repositories are not compliant with the GNU Free System distribution guidelines. F-droid has been removed since Replicant 6.0 0004 RC1.
  • Replicant 6.0 cannot be built with a GNU/Linux distribution that is compliant with the GNU Free System distribution guidelines.
  • Because Android build system didn't use a package manager, finding the license of each repository isn't trivial (bug #1973). We need to do more investigations on that, as the licenses are printed in the device information in the settings.
  • Similarly we don't know the license of the Webview component as looking at the license of each repository used to build it isn't trivial (bug #1786). The licenses are also printed in the device information in the settings.
Most problematic security issues that need to be fixed:
  • The last security update for Android 6 is from October 2017 .
  • The Webview browser component is outdated and has security issues because of that (bug #1786).
