@ck Optional: Physical removal of all microphones. A headset can be connected for voice communication.
@nitrokey I think the speaker can also be used as a microphone.
@bkos Yeah, that's why we are looking into it.
@nitrokey If I were you, I'd disconnect speakers and microphones from the mainboard and use a wireless protocol (e.g. BT, but closed) for data transfer. Have a seperate module control and distribute microphone and speakers, potentially other sensors.
@bkos Yes, we are looking into that.
@nitrokey I like the idea. It's probably hard to do, but a hardware kill switch would be awesome.
@nitrokey Kann man nur empfehlen :) Die Kombi von Pixel 4a + GrapheneOS ist absolut alltagstauglich, "sicher" und nutzerfreundlich.
"Optional: Physical removal of all microphones. A headset can be connected for voice communication."
@nitrokey Ist es ein 4a 5G oder das 4a?
@koetpi 4a (ohne 5G)
@nitrokey What about support? Are these supported longer than any regular Pixel 4a with Google Android and Graphene OS?
@hund same support duration until August 2023.
@nitrokey Thanks for the reply. This is unfortunately why I don't bother with Graphene OS. :/
@hund Unless a GrapheneOS maintainer decides to support the device longer.
GrapheneOS did 'extended support' for Pixel 2, which only recently finished Google did the work getting Android 11 to run on that phone a couple of months before they dropped support. GrapheneOS advice was to replace the phone ASAP as it got increasingly insecure as months passed
Think Google will drop the 4a just before releasing Android 14- someone would have to get GrapheneOS/Android 14 working on it, which is significant work
@nitrokey 'Most secure android on the planet' is a big claim.. Unless there is some evidence to back it up...
@nitrokey The price though. That's double the amount of a normal new Pixel 4a.
How to do you enable VoLTE and SMS over LTE and WiFi calling? Last time I checked, those are proprietary libraries that don't exist in stock AOSP.
Do you use the proprietary vendor partition?
Does the Pixel 4 even boot without a proprietary library? I know the Pixel 3a doesn't.
I ask because your page says "100% open source"
@kop316 proprietary drivers are required.
