Google, why do you think you know the name of my first teacher, when even I don’t know it?
By the way, this is surely not my secret question, because I never configured it, and I forgot the name of my first teacher decades before Google was born. I Know, this may be unbelievable for you digital naïves.
Not being able to login into my Google account raises at least one question: How to use my Android Phone? The answer for me was, not at all. Sure, I could just make a new Google Account, but needing a Google Account to be able to use my phone is ridiculous.
What I did instead was: I obtained a Bootloader unlock key for my Phone and installed CyanogenMod on it. Fortunately I had the Android SDK installed, so it took me just some minutes:
- Get the image for your Phone
- Unlock the Bootloader
- Use the
fastboottool from the Android SDK to install the image.
- Reboot, done
I think I owe Google a big Thank You! Now I’m completely Goolge-free with a Phone without Vendor- and Google-Crap that is impossible to get rid of.
This was probably one of the better ideas I had.
