I know there are some Replicant users here, so here's my little experience:
I can't install OsmAnd (I know, non-free graphics, but that's it),
and I CAN install LibreTasks, but it crashes as soon as I try to edit a setting.

Experienced anything similar?

By the way, it's a Galaxy SII.
I just opened it because my screen stopped working...
Thankfully it was just a connector that was off.
So I just put it back, and bingo!

Just sharing, if you happen to have a similar problem.

The weird thing is that both programs get installed/work just fine on another phone.

I'm actually running replicant on a SII as well. For some reason some programs just aren't compatible from my experience. I've got replicant running on a SIII and it will run programs the SII will not run.

That's weird. That would be related to hardware support then?
At least thanks to you, now I know my SII isn't defective.

Maybe a clue, I'll have to try an earlier version: https://github.com/osmandapp/Osmand/issues/1172

Or for some probably different reason:
https://github.com/biotinker/LibreTasks/issues/194

I'll try to fix these two, but hopefully it's not a waste of time (in case of a hardware-related issue).

Usually 3D acceleration/OpenGL.
For example no Firefox-based browser works for those reasons.

Oh. Too bad, these 2 programs were rather interesting. Oh well.
Do you know by chance an offline maps program that works on Replicant?

Just to make sure my phone is OK, do any of you have weird bugs from time to time? Things you've never had on other phones?
Like having to input my pin code twice in a row, out of the blue for example. Or Replicant restarting by itself most likely when I tried to open F-droid if I remember correctly. Stuff like that.
I just want to make sure this is classic Replicant stuff. Else, I'll have to reinstall the whole thing, hoping it would fix that stuff. Else, it's the hardware that would be faulty.
