Got a new (second hand, pre-scuffed) samsung phone. Here are the bad experiences I'm having:

- Scam fishing text from some party who knew I'd made the purchase, somehow knew my number.

- Trying to install custom ROM.

- Installing another OS requires proprietary samsung software that only runs on windows

- Requires waiting a week after enabling developer options, before OEM Unlock will appear

@faun i don't remember the details, but i'm almost sure i used "heimdall" in gnu/linux to flash twrp in at least three different samsung devices - once you have it, installing custom roms is "straightforward"
