Summary

The rough process of the most important steps is:

  • Backup the data you want to keep
  • Install an open Android OS like Replicant or LineageOS according to the respective guide for your phone
  • Install the F-Droid app store

I have some older iPhones and would be interested in reusing them, say, as dedicated webcam servers or similar. It will be a great day when someone comes up with a way of flashing an iPhone with another operating system.
