So would I! Now it is pretty much official, that the makers of Fairphone will not be providing any new android versions (for the time being, they don't even ensure essential security updates, such as fixing the UXSS vulnerability). So clearly, there is no other option to ever get a newer Android onto the FP1. Who could take the lead on this? Also, is there any indication that @chrmhoffmann might be interested?

Hi,

Without MTK sources, you won't be able to make a full functioning rom.

Anyway, I unfortunately don't have the time.

My advice, buy a new phone and make sure it is supported by cyanogen.

Does anyone know what requirements does MTK have? Did they want money or did you have to sign a NDL?

Wait, didn't you build this rom with the kernel that you compiled yourself? You even linked to a github page for that. Which sources are missing then? I'm confused
