No, not unlocked. I followed these instructions. It was straight forward from what recall. IIRC, now that i think about it more, I used a precompiled binary, but checked the hash before installing it. That's not to say I can trust their hashes, but I'm counting on the community to raise hell otherwise.

If you're talking about GrapheneOS, I've been running the OS myself for the past year.

I didn't send them my device to flash, I compiled it from their repository and flash my device myself.

With that said, the project is complex and the likelihood of an individual to verify there are no exploits seems pretty low.

Moreover, the Over-the-air updates are nice for my lazyass, but its another attack vector

Signal is "open source". The servers and client code were published to a repository on github, and for the past year, they weren't updated at all. Only recently there was an update to the repository for the server. Its clear the public repository is not the canonical repo, so how can anyone trust what they're actually running. Having a zero trust hash signature of the codebase from the servers would be nice

Prior to (uh) thinking deeply about the context in which I exist, it was my life ambition to be an investor at a VC firm...

Regardless of the strategy or objective, the tactics are the same. Also, general chaos, has the unlimited potential of creativity and emergence. To me, it is the end, but to fash, its the means to an end. Either way, it is materially identical. It leads me to question what is actually occurring.

How do you account for industrial agriculture requirements to a vegan diet? Would you condemn indigenous folks who, say hunt for their traditional diet? What about the necessity of animals role in an ecosystem or in regenerative agricultural?

Even if you self host, the routing meta data (email headers) are not encrypted or secured in any way.

Wouldn't a Matrix.org service be more reliable for secured communication?
