Angry FESM | Free Exynos Sources Movement







------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


We all know how hard it is for developers as codeworkx, Entropy512, and XpLoDWilD to work on Exynos devices such as the I9300 Galaxy S III. The reason for this difficulty is the lack of proper sources & documentation for the Exynos SoC. What Samsung release is kernel source, and a few parts of the platform source that aren't actually modified or really critical. The goal of this thread is to convince Samsung to release the needed sources & documentation for the Exynos SoC!

You know that bad press for samsung is our most effective weapon to make things changing.
So if you want to make samsung to continue paying attention, you know what to do...
Fight till you got what you want to have.

Write a request asking Samsung to release the needed sources & documentation for Exynos devices:

It is also highly recommended to create inquiry in the OSRC:
http://opensource.samsung.com/recept...method=inquiry
Quote:
Requester: Enter your name.

ID (E-mail): Enter your email address.

Country: Select your country.

Inquiry Type: Select "Request for Source Codes".

Model: Enter "Samsung I9300 Galaxy S III".

Message:

Dear Samsung,

A great device becomes GREAT only when software truly compliments the hardware. We, the development community, are striving very hard to achieve that objective. Many users of Samsung Galaxy S3 and other Exynos based devices want to make the phones released by Samsung truly inspirational and surpass any competition. This powerhouse will achieve its true potential only when the development community get the source documentation regarding the hardware components such as the resource libraries pertaining to the Exynos SoC and Mali GPU.

It not only benefits the end user but will also be highly beneficial for Samsung in the long run, as these customers will then get utmost satisfaction with their device and will then help in the word-of-mouth publicity of Samsung products.

A truly inspirational product is born when it inspires the masses and is able to mesmerize the entire world. With Samsung Galaxy S3, we are witnessing a paradigm shift in the mobile industry and need your little help in making this turning point even more monumental.

We hope we will not be disappointed by a customer centric company like yours.

Warm regards,
A true Samsung fan

It says we are a "loyal cliché of people"
I wouldn't post that anywhere as they will not take it seriously because it makes us look illiterate.

But besides that I agree with the idea.

and is now having a self-defeating affect and forcing these brilliant developers to lose faith in Android.
Please change this to "effect" very quickly.

Great idea, but this should probably be rewritten until it sounds professional. If we're going to stick with this, then here are some changes that should be made.

Quote:
As you know, developers are the lifeblood of the Android ecosystem and are generally the people that are developing the most exciting and innovative applications for users.
No dashes needed.

Quote:
Samsung has generally been at the forefront of mobile/cellular phone innovation and has usually allowed access to this type of non-sensitive information, so other co-innovators can continue to develop for the wider community.
Quote:
We know you understand the size of the Android community, in fact you also use this community yourself to unofficially beta test your own internal updates and firmware versions, so please, repay the community by releasing this none-sensitive information.
No dash needed.

Quote:
The Samsung Android community are a loyal cliché of people.
Makes no sense.

Quote:
They don’t want to move away to devices by Sony, or HTC, but their openness is forcing everybody to rethink their loyalties.
