So apparently some Android manufacturers not only won’t provide security patches, but will instead just lie to the customers that their software has been patched while all the vendor has done has been to change the date stamp on the security patch.
Pretty extreme lol, one more reason to run custom roms I guess…
I’m interested in how this ‘looks like in the real world’, so if you feel like it you should all test if we got any patches missing with SnoopSnitch (Play, F-Droid) and see how bad the situation actually is.
Update your phone to the latest software, run SnoopSnitch and post your results below!
EDIT: The version on F-Droid is outdated, by the time of writing only the Play Store version works on all phones, no root required.
