Introducing BharOS – The Open Source Android

Alternative You’ve Been Waiting For


If you’re fed up with Google’s ever-increasing stranglehold on the Android operating system, you’re not alone. Luckily, there’s an alternative that puts you back in control of your device: BharOS. Developed by JandKops, a non-profit organization incubated at IIT Madras, BharOS is an AOSP (Android Open Source Project) based operating system with no Google apps or services. In other words, it’s a version of Android that isn’t bogged down by bloatware and unwanted features. And best of all, it comes with No Default Apps (NDA).


The good thing about this mobile operating system is that this one comes with No Default Apps (NDA). This basically means that users will get most of the storage space, unlike Android. The OEMs ship phones with default Google apps as well as some native apps. With BharOS, one won’t be forced to use apps that they may not be familiar with or that they may not trust.


One will also be able to receive ‘Native Over The Air’ (NOTA) updates, similar to Android phones. The developers assert that NOTA updates are automatically downloaded and installed on the device, so users don’t have to manually check for them and install them like on other mobile operating systems.


BharOS is still in its early stages of development but the team is working hard to bring new features and improvements with every update. The developers have also promised to keep the OS up-to-date with the latest security patches from Google. So if you’re looking for a reliable and customizable Android alternative, keep an eye out for BharOS.


BharOS is an upcoming open-source Android alternative that promises a customizable and bloatware-free experience. It comes with No Default Apps (NDA) and Native Over The Air (NOTA) updates, making it a viable option for those who are looking for a more streamlined mobile operating system. Keep an eye out for this one – it just might be the next big thing in open-source alternatives to proprietary software!
