Smile Porting CyanogenMod 10.1 to Lenovo A820 / A830 (MTK 6589)

Hi,

I recently bought a few Lenovo A830s for my family and my company, and I'm interested in porting CyanogenMod 10.1 to them (and their smaller sister the A820)

I understand that we have access to some of the source code for the Mediatek kernel (github - varunchitre15/MT6589_kernel_source)

and that one of the other major sticking points is no support for dual SIMs in CM.

I was just wondering whether anyone was interested in helping me with this, and whether they had any more insights to give before I started looking into it.

If this project is successful, I think it should also be much more straightforward to port CM to other MTK 6589 devices.

Best wishes,

Tom

Thumbs up MIUI

I started looking into this, but I found it quite tricky.

In the meantime someone ported MIUI V5 to this device, so I have been using that instead.
