  1. I'm not 100% sure how this all works, but I think that the bootloader check is just 1 of the safetynet checks. LOS wouldn't be verified by Google, which is also one of the checks.
  2. It was always known that default LineageOS wouldn't pass safetynet. Only "new" information is that the stock software is perhaps subpar, but I wouldn't say that's news either and I expected that, and it's also subjective. I don't think this is even a problem with the phone, more so with proprietary apps being stupid.
  3. That's outdated, current devices are shipped with a locked bootloader. First shipments were with an unlocked bootloader, but customers had to lock it to pass safetynet. See
  4. South Korea, which has tested a lot of people, had 7300 infected and 50 deaths on March 8th. So, 0,68%, significantly more than you're saying and 6,8 times more than the flue. These numbers can also rise if not kept in check because then the amount of people that need treatment will rise above the level that hospitals can manage, resulting in people with this virus taking places that are needed by people with other issues. But experts still aren't sure about the percentage, it's too early to tell. It's fair to say it's significantly more than the flue. Personally I'd guess it's between 1% and 4%.
  5. Set a deadline and threaten further actions (chargeback, reporting to governing authorities, etc.) if your rights aren't met.
  6. Jesus christ, I can't believe some of the replies here. People die because of this, the lethality rate is much higher than the flu (or the cold), people that survive can have a significantly worse quality of life, and there's a significant hospitalization rate among the people that get it putting pressure on hospitals that might not be able to take it if drastic actions aren't taken. I sincerely hope everybody stays safe during this pandemic.
  7. That's got to be at least tricky legally. Searching a bit it seems that technically they should be able to do that, at least in the EU. Anywhere else and they might run into problems with the contract with google for the play store certification since it apparently says you can't sell devices with and with google play services. Aside from that, if they find a way to sell it with LineageOS instead, they'd be selling a phone that technically doesn't have all the features advertised since it wouldn't have google pay. They could do some other tricks to ship LineageOS with working google pay, but I think that would be even trickier legally. But yeah, I'd advise customers to just install LineageOS themselves. It's very easy, and if you manage to brick it the dev seems keen to help even the deepest bricks. It's also one of the advertised features.
  8. If that's the case they should just send a reply to tell them that, it wouldn't explain the inability to reply to emails.
  9. Also reasonable to expect it to last until it's no longer mentioned, but here we are. Kinda weird, I don't have anything to do with the company. Don't see how this should affect anything with your order, but considering you've already cancelled once I don't think this is a real issue. You seem to misread me here, I just hate it when people are misrepresenting facts or arguing with plain old fallacies. They could've handled that better, probably, I didn't follow it too closely because I don't care about those earbuds. That could explain it. Not sure how that would work legally then though, if you refuse to update a page with changed terms on an order.
  10. No, that's not how logic works. Just because it's extended doesn't mean it's extended until further notice, or that there's no end date. A while might've been 1 second and it would've been technically correct. You ordered something that didn't mention you'd get earbuds, and you're not getting earbuds, nothing wrong with this. I'm not just going to believe you when it doesn't line up with pretty much everything else.
  11. That was kinda your whole argument, that the order page said something that apparently you don't remember 100% completely. I see no reason to believe the order page made any mention of earbuds with your pre-order when you ordered then. So, fully fair. No reason to expect something you didn't order.
  12. I was thinking of this, my bad. Anyway, I also found this which says the text about the headphones was different from what you're claiming was on the site. Seems weird to me that you saw text that's from April (and on archive sites), while others saw a different text. I don't see why they would change it to indicate an end, and then change it back to the April version.
  13. Looking forward to this, no fully working bluetooth audio is what I'd personally miss the most. Also, really appreciate all your (and others!) hard work on this.
  14. Thought they changed that text shortly after you complained the last time, and added that they'll honour those that ordered before they removed it, even though that wasn't the plan before. Not sure though, but if that's the case it's somewhere in this thread. The text is technically wrong though, because it would mean all orders even today (which are technically pre-orders as well by their own definition) should be getting the earphones, even though it's no longer mentioned on the order page. But that's just semantics. And the case substitute still seems to be included with all orders.
  15. I had typed a reply in the different thread, but that reply got deleted so I'll try to recreate it. Recommended app for backups still seems to be Titanium Backup, but that's closed source. You can get it from the play store with Aurora Store, but I'd get why you wouldn't want it. Best open source alternative seems to be oandbackup. However this seems to maybe not backup some things like Wifi settings and texts. Performance might also be worse. I will be trying oandbackup some time this week (with Titanium Backup as a backup backup), I'll post my findings here then. If anybody else got any recommendations I'd love to hear them as well, or if they'd want me to test any specific app/setting to backup across a wipe (as long as it's nothing too difficult).
  16. Last update was "However because of the virus no one knows when the traffic is re-open and people can get back to work.", does it really help to just repeat the exact same information?
  17. I believe you first need to enable the fingerprint sensor before it'll be activated automatically. So if you never do that, then it's completely disabled in practice. No idea if you can do this after enabling it, but I'd guess you can.
  18. Really? Adding that opinion to an objective list means it's detrimental? Even though there's a valid bug report there? Just what kind of bug reports, that you're saying are happening, are acceptable to you then?
  19. And just FYI, Erik said to "Email [email protected] ... to chase your request if necessary.", like I already said.
  20. Thanks for including the link to the dev page. Installing a "random" APK from a google drive that requires root doesn't seem safe. Not that I particularly trust it now that I have the dev page though, would've preferred to see the source code or something. But thanks.
  21. Ah yes, the claim and then if challenged the other person should just google it themselves, and with an implication that that other person isn't that smart with a passive aggressive tone. Language changes by the way, and there's no reason to believe it's currently sexist.
  22. That option isn't sexist, that's what you're making of it. Anybody can be one regardless of what they're born with, and nobody's inherently one regardless of what they're born with. It's purely based on how that person acts.
  23. I don't like screen protectors. Gorilla glass by itself is pretty good, the plastic screen protectors scratch significantly easier, and the glass ones are kinda weird for curved screens. I've used both in the past, and I've always just kept them on indefinitely even though they got scratched/cracked, they seem pointless to me personally.
  24. That doesn't really make sense, the work in China is obviously delayed, but development doesn't necessarily need to happen in China. There's an office in the UK. If anything I'd say that because manufacturing is on hold, that's the perfect time to focus on other things.
