An easy way to Install AOSP on Smartphone... ? FOSS

cross-posted from: programming.dev/post/6749271

Hi,

Intro about XDA forum (skippable)I was using a lot xda-developers.com for anything that was related to Android development and phone support. (ROM etc…) But it became rotten --> https://programming.dev/pictrs/image/0b30b1df-4a81-4d24-9a1c-1d5e62bb3650.png 😱 https://programming.dev/pictrs/image/75cdc0d7-bfe7-4161-ba48-57fca51f4603.png 😱

Current situation ton Install another ROM ~OSAs you may know, in order to install another ROM For example to get rid of Google ! 👿 You need one that is specifically build for your devices for example: wiki.lineageos.org/devices/This is so inefficient ! You might have heard of Treble that focus on this problem - …googleblog.com/…/here-comes-treble-modular-base-…- www.hsc.com/resources/…/what-is-android-treble/sadly it’s made by google 👿 and I doubt that they will release all the code. We will see. If you don’t know what is AOSP <–

The question : How to install AOSP on a "Supported device"I’ve always use only google-free smartphone ! But OMG it’s time consuming. 1. Found a smartphone ( with the spec you want and in your budget ) 2. Check if you can have\import it in your “country” 3. Check if someone already cook a ROM that support that specific model 4. or create it by yourself (even more time consuming ) 5. Sometimes: bypass any protection that prevent to install another ROM ! 6. Finally install the ROM’s, boot loader etc… At this time, when it seem that Treble is not there yet… Do you have a quicker path\Solution ? Thanks
