+ \begin{itemize}
+ \item $\rightarrow$ No Exynos with removable battery and isolated modem.
+ \item $\rightarrow$ All the devices supported by Replicant 6.0 have been dropped.
+ \item $\rightarrow$ We'd like to support the devices longer...
+ \item The APQ* also look interesting, we would need to do more research on it:
+ \begin{itemize}
+ \item Isolated modem?
+ \item Upstream support for the SOC?
+ \item Nonfree bootloader? (signed?)
+ \item Probably way more work needed (different modem, more upstreaming work)
+ \end{itemize}
+ \item We also took the decision when LineageOS didn't support thoses.

+ \begin{itemize}
+ \item Galaxy SIII (I9300): Good upstream status, modem support lacking, and other small fixes to do.
+ \item Galaxy Note II (I9300): Good upstream status, modem and display support lacking

+ \begin{itemize}
+ \item $\rightarrow$ Upstream Linux $\rightarrow$ We can support them longer.
+ \item Remaining issues:
+ \begin{itemize}
+ %% $\rightarrow$ Repurpose the device and run GNU/Linux when not supported anymore.
+ \item RAM size and new Android versions
+ \item Nonfree bootloader
+ \end{itemize}

+\begin{frame}
+ \center{Nonfree bootloader}
+ \begin{itemize}
+ \item Incompatible with Linux since year 2000
+ \item Nonfree $\rightarrow$ Incentive to drop the device
+ \item Partially free u-boot port
+ \item Research to understand if we can make it fully free (xboot)

+ \end{itemize}

+\begin{frame}
+ \center{Future directions}
+ \begin{itemize}
+ \item Finish the research on xboot
+ \item Look into devices like the PinePhone and the Librem5
+ \item Share more work with GNU/Linux upstream (ofono, other hardware support libraries)
