Inside the Stealth Survival Phone


Looking for a phone that doesn’t spy on everything you do? Getting or making your own de-Googled phone may be right up your alley. I call my personal variation of this setup the Stealth Survival Phone, and in this video I give a quick look at some of the apps I use.

Remember, the right to privacy is the same thing as the right to self-defense. If you just give away all of your information willy-nilly then you are waiving that right.

If you’d like to try creating your own de-Googled phone there are plenty of guides online on how to do that, but feel free to get in touch with me if you’d like some guidance. I also am willing to setup the software on the phone for you if you send it to me in the mail. If you request my assistance, I ask that you find some way to return the favor, and https://gift.cahlen.org shows you a few ways to do that.

Thanks for watching!

  1. I noticed an ‘AlanWatts.txt’ file on your phone. Here’s my story about Alan Watts:

    When I was 20 yo, my semi rich stepfather divorced my mother, thus taking away any financial support I would need to go to UCLA, to which I had already been accepted and was just waiting to pick out my classes. So, I volunteered for the draft (1966) and took off to Aspen, CO to do some skiing before they called me up. The night before I left for Aspen, my mother gave me ‘Nature, Man, and Woman’ by Alan Watts. I took it with me and read it intermittently between activities, and could barely get through it it was so boring.

    Long story short: I went into the Army, then off to Viet Nam. When I got back, I was so discombobulated in psychology, soul, and Spirit that I was in desperate need of something. The first book I went to was ‘Nature, Man, and Woman’, which I read over again, and it meant everything in the world to me and sent me on a 30 year quest of similar knowledge, and eventually got me recombobulated and things are fine – finally.

    A couple of years after the war, when I felt I had gained back at least a modicum of psychological stability, I attended UC Berkeley as a Literature major. What a freak show back in 1971! Some of it creative, like the ‘East Bay Sharks’, but much of it gutter level funky. One day, on the rim of the fountain at the entrance to the campus, I saw a tall, lean, bearded chap talking Zen stuff. I didn’t figure it out at the time, but I am sure now it was Alan Watts – especially now, having heard him talk on several videos, which weren’t available then. I wish I’d have known then because I wouldn’t have been shy about approaching him, and with the offer of a couple of vodkas, I’m sure I could have drug out the conversation.

    Also at Berkeley, I read ‘The Turn of the Screw’ by Henry James. ‘The Turn of the Screw’ is, of course, the great American Koan, but as far as I know I am the only one to have recognized it as such and received benefit from it. My treatise on the subject can be found at nidrahb.com, but I don’t suggest you read it until you have read the “amuzette” (HJ) and have been profoundly upset by it for a period of time. I read it for a class while surrounded by the freak show of Berkeley and still amping from the VN war. Strange times!

    Alan Watts isn’t by any means the end-all of your search for Spiritual counselors, but he is well worth having in your line up of them. I still listen to his talks on YouTube now and then.

    1. Thank you for sharing that awesome story, Bill! I also have a long history with Alan Watt’s work. He’s had more influence on my thinking than anyone else.

  2. Heads up for people trying to get the LG V20 us996, there are certain versions of that phone which may not be able to be rooted. The UCK model is one of them. Mine is a UCL and worked just fine, and I hear there is a USA version which works as well. The 3-digit identifier is next to the barcode underneath the battery.
