[ale] [was] Re: Give application write access to /dev/console?



It requires the play store app and services to be running. The play store has the location tracker.

I found, by digging, the location history that stuff collected. It was detailed enough that it could stand up in court as a method to place me near a crime scene or exonerate me. So I went through and turned it all off. The gmail app then barfed warnings about missing functionality until  some tracking stuff was reactivated. Additionally, I found no way to stop gmail from respecting my choice for firefox. I frequently get news notices from a friend I travelled to Ireland with. Gmail started using only chrome for links. Chrome has no method to flush browser history that I could find.

K-9 works just fine. Firefox works just fine. Cuprum pdf viewer is pretty crappy (can only display first of a multi-page pdf).

I have a nice, new Oneplus 5 and I'm very close to doing a full wipe and install only apps from freedroid.
