The non open-source parts of Pinephone - What kind of threats do they facilitate?
#1
I've read a bit about Pinephone's challenges in getting the device all open-source hardware ...

... What threats do these weaknesses facilitate? I have read the IME problem on most computers even allow remote hacking, as well as who knows what data theft to the (small) memory. Do the Pinephone closedsource parts allow similar types of distant threats (people can hack it over the internet)? Do they allow a way to open or access files bypassing the OSs fulldisk encryption? Or can they be exploited in some other ways?

(full support to PinePhone's workers and hope they continue on their worthy path)
