I'm back on the forums after being away for some time.
In the meantime I got myself my own LG Optimus G to be able to get to effective developing for this device.
My opinion is that this device is a powerfull device with a lot of "still to be unlocked" potential.
Before I bought the LG Optimus G I used the Samsung Galaxy S Plus, which had a very active and good developers which even today still perfectly support this old device.
When that phone launched it contained Android 2.3.6, but today it supports even the Android 4.4.4 builds (unoffical).
One of the most important steps in achieving this goal was to move from the Samsung provided kernel source to the CAF (Code Aurora Forum) based kernel source.
Because I wish the LG Optimus G the same future as my old device, I would like to get busy with bringing up the CAF kernel codebase on the LG Optimus G.
This will be a big project which is why I request fellow developers which are interested in this project to please join and form a development team with a common goal.
What needs to be done is:
- Obtain official LG Optimus G (Android 4.4) kernel sourcecode from: LGE975_G_Kitkat_Android_V20a_Kernel.zip
- Obtain latest CAF Kernel codebase (chipset apq8064) from: msm-5bfc8718998bedfeea1997d83838ffd1981cbf12.tar.gz (Last modification date: 30-06-2014)
- Extract added LGE Specific code and drivers from the official LG kernel source.
- Set-up a team Github with the clean CAF codebase, which all the driver and LG specific code will be added to.
If you're interested in helping with this project please contact me or leave a message over here.
Please no spamming etc.
