It's really as simple as that, even if blackberry managed to make a really good android phone, without it being secure, they had nothing, and no one wanted secure.
    Secure from whom?

      Exactly, you don't write it on LineageOS. LineageOS comes without Google Play Services and you cannot install them. You either need to rebuild with the Google stuff as system-apps or you modify the system partition of LineageOS. It does NOT work on stock LineageOS without mods.

        There are no significant user base for Jolla. At all.

        Again, you'd see Graphene or Lineage being the leading community forks of Android that people actually use. They are as much FOSS as Jola is. They are serious business daily driver OSes. Jolla is not.
