Sep 3, 2017 — Hey Supporters,
The source verification results are all in all good - we can declare VICTORY!
It's most likely really the Phoenix OS kernel as it carries slight unique modifications in comparison to Android-x86 and it's forks.
There is one small, but somewhat significant catch though...
Anyone wanting to see what they changed has to compare a similiar project which isn't comfortable and quick. You can't just jump in and start contributing. It just can and should be much better.
I'm in direct contact with Phoenix OS team and I'll be pushing for a more neat and organized way of maintaining their kernel repo.
I've asked for adding solutions that will make any future contributors work easier - adding code branches, tags and releases etc.
We have what we demanded. This is the power of a vocal community!
I send a big Thank You to all of you signees, supporters, sharers, Reddit upvoters, friends and people who bombarded Phoenix OS e-mails.
XDA Developers - the biggest mobile dev community portal even posted an article about our petition.
It gave us a major boost - thanks!
1. Time to improve the hardware compatibility.
There are quite a lot of us. Only a fraction of the petition visitors signed - just to give you a picture. There are thousands of us :D
We have to build Android-x86 documentation to help users start adding drivers and improving existing ones.
In the meantime, those of you who know how to do it - join Phoenix OS kernel contributors and make it better :)
2. Now we can ask for more! :D FOSS!
Requesting the full source won't hurt us right?
If we get more supporters than this time, maybe Phoenix OS team will really consider it?
What do you think? Time for another petition? Let me know.
Sorry for doubling on this - my bad I didn't knew how change.org works :D :)
