I really cant thank you enough for all the hard work you are putting in on the Find 5, you are just starting to crack some amazing things. I see some good work from you already. Maybe we can get Faux123 or some others to hep you out building a steady kernel that can be built upon. that would be a good thing to start out. I know Fuax and Show-P will help you if they have the time, they have helped a lot of people out in the community. I wish I were as good as you with development. There are some great Devs around here like you mentioned Faux is one of the best, I have used his kernel on my One X International my Nexus 4 and Nexus 7. I have also used Show-P work too and many others that are around here. I just hope that everyone can come together and create a solid kernel for the Find 5, and it looks like you have taken the lead, and you are off to a great start. I'm sure with all the great devs around here we will have a selection of kernels before long. All of your work is appreciated and I'm sure our Find 5 will be an amazing device once more people get their hands on the device. It is selling like crazy now, we just got to wait until it ships to everyone and be patient.
Where are all the roms at
Don't worry they will come in time, the Find 5 is just now getting delivered to people. When more people get their hands on the phone. I know of at least 3 people who are working on Roms right now and that is considering, that the device has only been sold for two weeks and most people don't even have it in their possession as of yet. The device went on sale in the US 2 weeks ago in limited supply, and it was the first batch of devices they had in stock, it sold out in minutes and actually crashed Oppo's server because all the traffic from people trying to but it at once. Now it is back on the order list and it seems like they have fixed their stock issue, it seems that they have a lot more in stock at least they have not run out yet and its been almost a week, shipping will take 1-2 weeks to get it though. The device is selling really well in China, The last phone they developed (The Oppo Finder) was the slimmest android phone ever made at 6.6mm thick and it sold over 10 million units, This is the first time they have sold in the worldwide market selling devices straight from the manufacturer itself.
Underclocking to 192 MHz is pointless on a device with properly working cpuidle unless you can reduce voltage significantly compared to 384.
I guess you learn something new everyday I wont be underclocking my DNA at 192 anymore, I just don't understand why it is the kernel? I appreciate the tip, lowest setting for me is 384 now.
Slight possibility that I might get a Find5 to do a CM bringup, but highly unlikely at this point. I'm not a big fan of GPL noncompliance. (The fact that it took over a month to release is a bad sign. The fact that it required work to get it to even compile is a worse sign - who knows where else the source does not match the released binaries???)
I think you would be happy with the Find 5, and I believe if their are any issues with the source code everything will be sorted out. Oppo is very friendly to the community after a visit to their forums you will figure that out they want to get into the US market and they know what we want , True Android - Open Source. if anything the stock Rom would be a different experience for you, I like it and will give it a go for a couple days anyways. Their are roms being worked on and ported as we speak, I'm pretty sure CM is being worked on by KaMma, and I know Flyme is being worked on because the developer told me, also the MIUI Team said this is the device that they want to develop their newer MIUI Roms on.
Yeah it did take over a month to get the source code but we got it, and I think they will do better in the future. They are new to the game this is their first World Wide Phone, they usually just sell in China and we know how that is. So they are doing the right thing, even if it is a little bit late one moth isn't that long really. Compare one month to some of the other major manufactures, and one month is pretty damn good. Most of the big name manufactures take longer than a month to release their kernel source code, I know HTC wait 90 days, at least they did with my One X International Version, and Motorola, LG, are not that great either to be honest. Samsung is getting better and Sony has JUST NOW, come around with its latest device, you know how they were before the Z!
Anyways you should get the Find 5,your development skills would be awesome on this device, I cant wait until everyone starts getting theirs and starts more developing. I think this phone is going to be great for development, and by the way, it looks so damn sexy too.
