looks like https for my site works on an old phone with Android 2.3.3
I wasn't sure if it would
maybe the ciphers are new enough and tls issues with old Android browsers are only about SNI? (using a multi-domain cert - one cert for three domains so on all of them the server default would be the right one anyway)
or maybe something on the phone updated itself?
anyway its good that it works without problems or warnings.
the old app for Friendica and Hubzilla that is on it still works too (and now over tls)
not so lucky with the fdroid client app though. There was an ancient version of the it on there (which I had installed on it years ago)
after trying to get it to update failed I tried downloading and installing the current version.
but now when I try to start it the screen just goes blank and nothing happens
not the end of the world though - could still download apps from there via browser/https if I can't get the client working.
Sick of the FAKE battery trouble on this phone but THERE IS NO WAY In HELL i would spend a single cent on a phone that does not have ROOT out of the box bilkying will only make me shove back HARDER its a BOYCOTT

it won't let me post a comment so posting it here:
regarding transport cards: Here in sydney they have the Opal cards, but you can add credit to them at local stores and pay with cash, which is what I prefer anyway, because I don't like giving out credit card credentials willy nilly to strangers and don't want those credentials sitting around in everyones databases. (I never understood why so many people take such risks)
