Default Kernel request to Samsung

Hi!

We can fix a lot of Galaxy S Advance I9070 bugs like poor battery life or low audio quality and much much more, but only with your help.

These bugs are caused by OS kernel which is not up-to-date with stock ROMís and Samsung is refusing to update it. Our previous requests have been ignored by them, and the point is that Samsung have to update it, they are just forced by law and licensing terms of Linux, however they just donít want to do this because of some unknown reason.

We think that the only way to get an updated source code is toÖ Show the power of our community and spam them with request messages. Thatís the only way to fix A LOT of S Advance bugs still present. S3 Mini community have done this before with a great success, so we can do this too!

Itís a nasty way, but itís the only thing we can do as a community, because our previous requests had been ignored.

Weíd be very pleased if you want to help us. Itís easy, just send them the message provided below:



Contact form: HERE

Inquiry type: Request for Source Codes

Sample message:

Iíd like to request the most recent Linux kernel source code for Galaxy S Advance I9070. Source code already available on Samsung Opensource is very outdated and not up-to-date with Samsung internal source code, which can be proved.

According to GNU GPL license you are obliged to publish any source code you had changed in Linux kernel, and you are violating law by not publishing it.

Please, stop pretending that current kernel is up-to-date and just update it. Community have had enough waiting for you to even answer to our requests.



Thanks in advance!

Our phone came with Gingerbread, and when the Jellybean update came, that source you linked was the only thing dropped (because it's GPL), which is the current source code we are using for all the kernels available, including CM11 and CoCore.


I think the only time where the older one was used, was when Shaaan tried to port CM 7.2.


Erm, most of what we don't have it's the modem/RIL, that are not ST-Ericsson but Samsung. Unless Sammy has the 3.4 kernel hidden somewhere (very unlikely), anything that is released from now on, it's pretty minor.
