And i don't mean kernel sourcecode. I mean whole sourcecode to make all hardware bits working on aosp roms.
Obviously more people are concerned of the sh!t FM than what with really matters.
For a while now, I have been curious how XDA has not yet issued a statement to Samsung, which all the non-dev folk can sign? I remember vaguely a while ago such note was published on the XDA blog for HTC which read along the lines of "give us source"...
To my mind, the problem is fairly easy to address in 3 steps:
1) the developers need to say clearly what is required (source for all, not just kernel) - this is because us lamers have no clue what to ask for...
2) XDA should post it as petition and call the mass (followers) to sign and support (remember the SOPA petition? 50k in a matter of hours)
3) those who are not necessarily in-the-know or dev should click away and support with sheer mass/numbers
Of course, you will have the unlimited tweet/RT/facebook likes and others who will post on Samsung's Wall... (I know I will).
Please accept this as humble recommendation how to get heard - devs need to lead the faithful fans to petition Samsung, instead of listening/reading/replying to lamers pissing of devs who (actually) suffer most from lack of source code...
