Librem 5 Mass Production Phone Has Begun Shipping

"Shipping the Librem 5 has been an immense multi-year developmental effort. It is the culmination of people’s desire to see an alternative to Android and iOS..."

Two on-site job postings added today: more (including remote work) will get posted in the future.

I'm having a great time.
$ rmdir content/

$ mkdir content
mkdir: cannot create directory ‘content’: File exists

@cameron So it's been a great experience so far :p My brand new phone still works and now runs LineageOS. Next step is to install F-Droid (which you can't get from Google's App Store) but that's for tomorrow

@cameron Okay the LineageOS install went pretty well! I read this article first: and it gives a lot of useful background info. Then the Lineage wiki gave clear instructions and commands so I wasn't lost even though it was pretty much my first time touching an Android device

@cameron @nergal I'm in the exact same situation as you with a dying iPhone 5 and no short term hope from my order. So I ordered a Motorola g7 and will try to put LineageOS on it... I'm nervous as well but if it works it's going great for the transition phone until I get a usable Librem

@mrbaraban @purism A Librem One subscription maybe? I got one to get email. I no longer use the email but kept the subscription anyway

@bachir @manhack +1, voter avec son portefeuille c'est encore la meilleure solution. "Dire qu'il suffirait qu'on arrête de l'acheter pour que ça ne se vende plus"

@manhack ce n'est pas avec une pétition que l'on fait pression sur Google, c'est en arrêtant d'utiliser ses services (Gmail, Docs, Drive, Analytics...) et en remplaçant la ROM de son tél Android par une utilisant fdroid ou en achetant un téléphone sous GNU/Linux comme un #Pine64 ou un #Librem5

@purism Biggest improvement for 2019 was switching from gmail to 🇨🇭❤️ Looking forward to my in 2020!

@tapaniraja GitLab for its free version being open source and for being more than just a code hosting service, having CD pipelines for example
