IF ANY ONE IS INTERESTED I HAVE THE OPEN SOURCE FILE FOR THE LENOVO S650 MINI VIBE X , I HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE OF COMPILING ROMS FROM SOURCE BUT IF SOMEONE WANTS TO TRY I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE ANY EFFORTS.
MOSTLY MULTI LANGUAGE IS NEEDED WITH FULL RTL SUPPORT IF IT CAN BE DONE AND AS CLOSE TO AOSP AS POSSIBLE.
CURRENTLY ONLY CHINESE AND RUSSIAN ROMS AVAILABLE WITH 1 OF THE CHINESE BEING MULTI LANGUAGE BUT TOO MUCH STILL IN CHINESE.
I DON'T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT IS NEEDED BUT LET ME KNOW IF CURRENT ROMS ARE NEEDED OR LENOVO SOFTWARE, PC DRIVERS ETC
JUST SCROLL DOWN TO DOWNLOADS IN THIS PAGE FOR SOURCE FILE
WE ALL KNOW THAT THE CHINESE ARE PUMPING OUT PHONES FASTER THAN ANYONE AND ARE USING ANDROID FREELY TO MAKE THE ROMS BUT NOT SO GOOD AT GIVING BACK TO THE DEVELOPERS TO MAKE CUSTOM ROMS,
SO THIS REALLY IS MORE OF AN APPEAL, GIVEN THAT LENOVO HAVE POSTED THE SOURCE CODE, SHOWS THEY ARE OPEN TO DEVELOPMENT ON THEIR PHONES, ALSO GIVEN THEY ARE NOW A GOOGLE / MOTOROLA COMPANY AND DESERVE THE ATTENTION, EVEN IF IT IS THE ONLY MEDIATEK BRAND THAT GETS BACKING.!!!!
THEY MAY NOT BE FLAGSHIP DEVICES AND MEDIATEK IS VIEWED AS ' CHEAP ' BUT LENOVO, DESPITE THE BUDGET END APPEAL, ARE PRODUCING DEVICES CAPABLE OF BEATING ALL OF THE BIG BRANDS IN MOST PERFORMANCE RELATED TESTS !
Thanks for the support, it is really appreciated, is a great phone just takes a little bit of getting used to mediatek ! If you have connections please try to push this if you can, I am being pressured for news on the lenovo forums based on this request !!
Fingers crossed something good will come !
