Greeting all Samsung Mobile users,
Codeworkx, one of the developers behind CyanogenMod Project is asking all our help to sign this very petition to Samsung Mobile ~ Help third party development achieve full potential of purchased devices. To get needed source code from Samsung Mobile to get all hardware bits working on AOSP based ROM like CyanogenMod and MIUI.
Why this is important? Most of the mobile phone manufacturers will only support and update ROM (or firmware) for 1 to 2 years after the phone was released. And you won’t get any update or improvement after that. For example, Samsung Galaxy S will not get latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Firmware officially. However, with 3rd party ROM developers’ help, all Samsung Galaxy S users can enjoy ICS.
But without all these source codes, custom ROM is not perfect. And will lack of some important features. So do support custom ROM developers and sign this petition. I signed mine. How about you?
Thanks fx for the tip.
