Broadcom: Release the Driver Source of GPU and CPU for BCM21553 devices.

This petition had 10,851 supporters

If Broadcom release the drivers of GPU and CPU for BCM21553 devices, we should be able to run much more things than the one we can on custom OS. This will include CyanogenMod, AOSP, CyanMobile and lots of other differents OS. If they release the Source, we could have Ice Crean Sandwich 4.0.4 smooth on our device. Even we can think of first Jelly Bean port based on 4.1.2, 4.2.2 or even 4.3. Port of android 2.3.7 it has released stable release due to we used Alcatel GPU and CPU libs. They were similar to AOSP, so we could use it on our devices for CyanogenMod 7.2, AOSP, and CyanMobile. All of them based on android 2.3.7, because Alcatel uses AOSP 2.3.7 so we could use it easily.

This libs are not compatible with 4.X version of android due to they need modifications at source. This is why we need the source of that libs instead of the pre-built binaries Broadcom gave us. 
The libs that Broadcom gave us were simply wrong libs, with the excuse of test builds.

Broadcom knew that there was lot of people complaining about the CM drivers, so they said, let's give us something to them to be them happy, but let's give them a test builds, not fully working, so they could not use it as a daily driver. Now that we know what was the meaning of this, we complain about the REAL source of libs. The ones can be adapted to our device for newer versions of Android.

Sincerely BroadcomCM

Si Broadcom libera los controladores de la GPU y la CPU para los dispositivos BCM21553, podremos ser capazes de ejecutar nuevas versiones de SO. Esto incluirá CyanogenMod, AOSP, CyanMobile y un montón de otros differents SO. Si se liberan podríamos tener Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4 sin ningun lag en nuestro dispositivo. Incluso podemos pensar en el primer port Jelly Bean basada en 4.1.2, 4.2.2 o 4.3. Android 2.3.7 se ha lanzado versión estable debido a que usamos librerias de Alcatel de GPU y CPU. Eran similares a AOSP, por lo que podrían utilizarlo en nuestros dispositivos para CyanogenMod 7.2, AOSP y CyanMobile. Todos ellos basados ​​en Android 2.3.7, ya que Alcatel utiliza AOSP 2.3.7 para poder utilizarlo con facilidad.

Estas librerías no son compatibles con la versión 4.x de android, debido a que necesitan modificaciones en la fuente. Es por eso que necesitamos la fuente de esa libs en lugar de la pre-construido binarios que Broadcom nos dio. 
Las bibliotecas que Broadcom nos dio eran simplemente libs equivocadas, con la excusa de librerias de prueba.

Broadcom sabía que había mucha gente quejándose de los controladores CM, por lo que dijo, vamos a darnos algo para que sean felices, pero vamos a darles una libreria de prueba que no funciona plenamente, para que no pudieran utilizarlo como un SO diario. Ahora que sabemos el significado de esto, pedimos la verdadera fuente de bibliotecas. Las que se pueden adaptar a nuestro dispositivo para las nuevas versiones de Android.

Sinceramente BroadcomCM
