  • I did not realise so many of you would click this video 😂 Stay for a fun easter egg right at the very end 👀 To see the Ultimate Tech fails video: nowine.info/loft/m3easH-9h5dtjoo/video

    • Hi

    • Have two phone private calyx & android?

    • Fairphone would be the ultimate match for CalyxOS, they make sustainable, right to repair phones, that are great quality and environmentally friendly. The phone would have it all 1. Great secure and private OS 2. Great quality phone. 3. Sustainable 4. Based on right to repair 5. 5 year warranty 6. Spare parts for all of the phone 7. A company that pays fair and equitable wages, to suppliers and emplyees

    • I almost always prefer more options and I'm no fan of Google BUT there's a reason for Android's supremacy. If Google actually wasn't evil, they'd incorpor your ideas and give you credit.

    • This is what the freedom phone dreamed of being.

  • They guy that caught the ketchup LOL

  • We need a calyx os version of chrome os

  • 2:53 as a C programmer, I think it's trying to allocate and dereference some memory location.

  • Clear phone

  • Calyx OS or Graphene ?

  • The perfect phone for a criminal.

  • Google💩

  • i wish this was available for samsung phones

  • Somehow this video made me more worried then relaxed that there is someone working for privacy. I would like to say, well I have an iPhone, but I thinks it’s same situation. And people worries about covid vaccine and 5G and staff. They should watch this video.

  • I want this better I need this

  • can anyone tell what the mobile is that?

  • it's still android. it's not a new os, just another custom rom. Most (even stock) android roms have a feature to disable internet for a specific app

  • NOwine vanced +micro g it's a great combination

  • Pls a Video about Samsung Galaxy a12

  • im tired of being tracked on my phone ill just make it myself

  • I would still rather have a pixel. This is a Andriloid phone for IOS users..

  • Is there a chance to install this OS on a scamsung device?

  • How about Cryptodata phones ?

  • So how all phones should always be?

  • Hellllllllllooooooooioooooi

  • If calyx takes off i am swtching.

  • Might be one of your most important videos so far. Thanks !

  • Nice Catch 😂😂😂

  • Mrwhosethboss channel is fake Be careful he cheated me $ 141

  • Pretty amazing idea, and project could very well end up big.

  • Take a shot everytime he says privacy

  • why you using ketchup?

  • This os have root access?

  • Love that cat

  • Google didn't make Android, they bought it

  • you are great you do miracles so great there is no one else like you

  • Cat.

  • Can't wait to see how far this goes!. Beautiful review by the way!

  • The comment section of this video is full of scammers profiles, be aware of this channel 👀

  • So, it's just a custom ROM like any other custom, nice try, but it's just custom Android but paid.

  • This video made my whole month. DOWN WITH BIG TECH AND BIG GOVERNMENT

  • Its literally a mod version of android phones 😂

    • nowine.info/loft/a21njnKTadpxfWE/video I'd be curious to know what is involved in porting this over to other devices the way LineageOS does; given some of the recent moves by Apple, etc. I can see this becoming more and more popular an option particularly for those working in commercially sensitive fields, having privacy concerns for their own personal wellbeing, etc.

  • How does this work with Android auto? Would be interesting .

  • So Aurora goes to google ask the app for the user insted of the user, and gives it you.(Aurora get your infos, and share them to google for letting them get the app for you!)

  • Using micro g helps me watch this video and skip all of the sponsored shit

  • Just give me a call recording that Google took away

  • Xiaomi being Chinese, and China being so famous for being pro-privacy..... I doubt they will adopt it. Also, I think this whole push for "Privacy" is being slightly made more scary then it actually is, most likely to make money from that fear. No one is truly interested what Bob is browsing on the internet, they are interested however that bob is a 34 year old male living in a certain area that has a tendency to react to green advertisements. Not so they can sell stuff to him directly, because that is way to much trouble. But to see if in general, an average 34 year old male living in a certain area is more suspectable to buy green stuff.

  • So, basically calyx os is android without google services involved and with improved privacy things

  • You can't beat the world lol , android rules , you think a company with 1000 employees can match the world ?

    • @Yak28if clayxos people that good why they copy android source ? They can't make their own like apple?

    • @L Lawliet They're not selling it. CalyxOS is made better, gets the latest Android updates every single month and is provided for free with no strings attached.

    • Dude android os is an open source everybody can get the source and fix any bugs , Calyx basically... they take the source of the year 2021 and put it in their home and said to people come buy it from us lol 😆 we made it better. On the other hand after 1 year the Android source code will get way better than now and it will exceed calyx adjustment to the code . I hope you get what I mean

    • Calyx is Android.

  • i love your cat

  • how do i install this on my phone

    • Instructions on their website.

  • How do I get it

    • nowine.info/loft/pomEsoaddrWRoII/video I love how we've been slowly privacy-pilling Arun. CalyxOS, GrapheneOS and even Lineage are a massive upgrade from "stock" android (not AOSP)

  • All i see is huawei

  • Weird they didnt use brave as default browser

  • thanks for review. i am russian but i understood all. i think i Will dowloand it

  • 08:25 He sued the FBI ? And WON?!!! Now THAT'S a BADASS!!

  • This man gets sponsored by android and in the video my man put this video at the end💀

  • My man I have a xiaomi phone that has MIUI and I have all the stuff that this sistem has

  • Panic button, sounds like the cheat button when your asked for your phone

  • BlackBerry has a similar rights access log

  • You forget to mention that this also breaks some features such as Pokémon go and alot of banking apps as Micro-g will not pass Googles SafteyNet attestation and bootloader unlock feature that comes hard build into the QUALCOMM and other various cpu models as the bootloader is a security feature of the cpu not of the installed os or device but of the hardware itself to protect the core of the device but that's not to say its bad as most published roms update security features and try to keep ahead of the ever battling malware market and death of devices themselves as why waste something that's perfectly fine just in-need of an upgrade so custom roms are great and you can use google services (if you like being watched and followed 24/7) or you can use micro g which works as you described and does so very well but it does have downsides I feel you should mention as to some its a lossto some but to others who only use the device to text and play games then Micro-g is the better of the 2 options

  • ngl the main reason i clicked on this video was because it was talking about an OS whose name is almost identical to this user handle that i've spent much effort coming up with 😂

  • I use IpadOs

  • There are some pros and cons. One of the cons is that the government won't know if you have illegal data on your phone (For example: drug dealing and in the worst case - Child pornography.).

    • I love Aurora store, you get to see just what an app needs, if it is genuinely free or not, etc. That OS, would be far better.

  • Try r os

    • I almost always prefer more options and I'm no fan of Google BUT there's a reason for Android's supremacy. If Google actually wasn't evil, they'd incorpor your ideas and give you credit.

  • 1:22 that catch💪

  • 2:01 I love the fact that he has not subscribed to his own channel😂🤔

  • It would make sense to use Calyx OS on devices that no longer receive updates. It is a win-win for everyone. I still use my ancient phone on android 10 with Lineage OS and works great.

  • Dad of ios

  • Huawei owners will like this.. including me lol. Sounds better than g space

  • Android: "Good lord what is happening in there?" Calyx: "Aurora Borealis"

    • @Christopher Marshall lmao

    • At this time of day? at this time of year? At this part of country? Localised entirely within your kitchen?

  • I love the video most when he says A Subs To the would be......... ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  • It needs a Pixel phone. Lame. Fail.

    • It works on a couple of other brands as well. They're adding more phones. See their latest post on website.

  • 👍👍👍👍

    • nowine.info/loft/nI6paoPaqtuoYX4/video Thanks for sharing this video, any innovation that could create more competition AND more privacy is a good thing for us consumers.

  • The saw someone catching the sauce

  • 1:23 good catch

    • I'd be curious to know what is involved in porting this over to other devices the way LineageOS does; given some of the recent moves by Apple, etc. I can see this becoming more and more popular an option particularly for those working in commercially sensitive fields, having privacy concerns for their own personal wellbeing, etc.

    • That transition at 1:23... I just wonder how many tries this took!!! Soon enough this channel will have to do a collab with Dude Perfect!!:)

  • If only the guy who made the freedom phone just installed CalyxOS on his device he would actually have a leg to stand on...

    • Thanks for sharing this video, any innovation that could create more competition AND more privacy is a good thing for us consumers.

    • What good would one leg do him without a brain? :)

  • so it's android. just not google's android. don't pretend it isn't android just because it isn't connected to google.

  • how is this vpn any different than your ISP? How can you know they don't decrypt and sell out or give up your data?

    • @cyberwho? Oh sorry my bad

    • @Yak28 I was referring to the vpn company he advertised in the video not calyx os

    • Their history and behaviour says a lot. Look up the Calyx Institute's founder and his battle with the FBI. Also, your ISP doesn't offer you deals from other ISPs. CalyxOS does offer you alternative VPNs during setup. Moreover, their code is open source and they don't collect the data, so how will they sell it?

  • Would love a fairphone with calyx on it.

    • @Google Account Duh, because they pay fair and equitable wages to suppliers workers, third parties will not so they can compete. You obviously have no idea how to critical think. And Fairphone has a 93 % repair-ability score, so stop your uninformed/lying bullshit.

    • nowine.info/loft/b4mma6zFaL6sYZg/video That transition at 1:23... I just wonder how many tries this took!!! Soon enough this channel will have to do a collab with Dude Perfect!!:)

    • @Google Account What about Teracube?

  • Due, holly $ht, the quality of your videos have got even better, well done

    • Thanks for sharing this video, any innovation that could create more competition AND more privacy is a good thing for us consumers.

  • Google a opp

  • Tell ur name bro 😁

  • i still wouldnt trust a chinese xiaomi phone with CalyxOS (the chinese are brilliant hardware spy bug creators. Even if Samsung phones had hardware spy bugs as well, i prefer any other country but china spying on me). ==>A samsung phone + Calyx OS would be great. Wont ever be installed by default on theirs tho..

  • tl;dr - there is no way Xiaomi or OnePlus is going to partner with Calyx OS. 1. Xiaomi, as stated by their founder, is an internet company, i.e they sell the hardware so users can see ads (hence the bloatwares on Chinese phones). Surely tech geeks can remove them but normal users won't. Moreover, if Xiaomi wants to expand their business later, what's better than controlling the operating system? Right now they are already selling cloud storages to users (and surprisingly, not cheaper than Apple or Google), so there is no way they would give up the gold mines to Calyx OS 2. OnePlus is slowly becoming another Oppo (they switched from OxygenOS to ColorOS and probably being assimilated into Oppo soon) and Oppo's main audience is the general public - who don't give a crap about privacy. In addition, similar to Xiaomi, Oppo wants to control the operating system as well (the only reason why they are pushing ColorOS on OnePlus phones) to gain profit from internet services. Only tech enthusiasts would buy a privacy-oriented phone with Calyx OS. Then again, if they are tech geeks, they could've bought any phones and install custom roms. That's how Google wins, because both normal users and tech enthusiasts are buying Pixel. They get data AND money from normal users, while tech-savvy people will give Google money, because no other phones get that much community support like Pixel phones. Check xda forum, Pixel phones always get the best and stablest roms, because their source codes are published quickly. Other phone manufacturers like Samsung or Xiaomi would take weeks, or even months, to publish their codes (partly because they release so many models), so not many developers would pay attention to these devices (except flagship phones).

    • Tech enthusiasts are not the only ones who would buy it. Friends and family often ask techies for advice on which device to buy. In other words, if these deGoogled phones were easily available in stores, normal people would buy them if advised by trustworthy techies.

  • Nicely explained.

    • Very informative video. Although I don't think it's smart to conclude that since it's open source "there are no hidden trackers or spyware". Open source is great, but somebody qualified needs to spend the time auditing the source code to make sure it's clean. (I'm not suggesting anything about Calyx OS. Just a general comment.)

  • best os in the world

  • Great... now micrg can track me...

    • MicroG is open source. It cannot do hide sneaky trackers because it's code is public!

  • Calyx Os sounds like a great OS but honestly speaking I will not install it.

  • Looks just like Android

    • It's an Android distribution. It's not a different OS, just Android without Google

    • I love how we've been slowly privacy-pilling Arun. CalyxOS, GrapheneOS and even Lineage are a massive upgrade from "stock" android (not AOSP)

  • Hahhahaha.... That hand which pops up behind to catch the ketch up bottle 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • Excellent piece on the privacy part!

  • So it's not a new OS ... It's just AOSP

  • So it's just Android... cool I guess? How about someone makes an actual new OS though

  • Watch google come after Arun for talking about this

    • Thanks for sharing this video, any innovation that could create more competition AND more privacy is a good thing for us consumers.

    • @Super ninja I know. I merely pointed out that he still mentioned CalyxOS after taking money from Google. Money didn't shut him up so respects to that :)

    • @Yak28 Google has nothing to do with android. CalyxOS is based on android but without google

    • They already did. The next video after this one was sponsored by Android. And but at the end Arun still said check out CalyxOS :)

  • FBI open up

  • This and grapheneos are only on pixel? Why? I have a s20+ and an old roommate installed a remote access tool on my phone he can even read this msg while I'm typing it. I need to get rid of andriod asap. Why is there no other os options for Samsung?

    • @Radplay ya I did a factory reset didn't solve anything.

    • Both GrapheneOS and CalyxOS are based on Android. Also, can't you just factory reset your phone? Or flash the stock OS using ODIN or Heimdall?

  • Can you still download apks on calyx?

    • Never thought he would make a video on this ! Great Go FOSS

    • Calyx is an Android distribution so yes, you can install apks on Calyx

  • Thank you Mrwhosetheboss that you show this , it is a good film

  • I love custom roms so much, and i will use it for ever

  • When the FBI break into someguy house, then you know that there not scummy

  • It feels weir to see the “why” before the “what”
