[Q] Cheapest Android phone with full kernel source
What is the cheapest available phone out there that has full kernel and android sources? I and a bunch of classmates need to do a project which requires custom kernel building and development on a phone. We have experimented with dev boards etc but now its time to get 4-5 real phones, so obviously cost is an issue.
Our project doesn't really need very high resources, so ROM size/RAM size/CPU speed, etc don't matter much - as long as touch screen works, calling works, wifi works, and custom kernels and android can be built and uploaded to the phone, Unbrickable/difficult to brick is a plus of course.
Any suggestions? We looked at mt6573 based Motorola Xt389, which seemed perfect, but it seems there is no source code released even though motorola has released lots of source code for other devices ( on sourceforge /motorola/wiki/Projects/ ).
Is there ANY thing out there that we can use? I know there are several in the higher cost range with full source code, but something close to, or cheaper than Xt389 is pretty much all we have the budget for.
Would appreciate any suggestions!
