Lightbulb [Petition] : Get the Sony's sources.

I've read in some threads than developpers can't really build her rom's and kernels in healthy bases because we didn't have the official sources of our devices.

But we have seen than Sony has help Xperia S project and our community is big, then we can try to get more complicity from Sony to our XDA Developpers.

I'm from Belgium, so I also wrote a petition to the French speaking users.

We need to do great things about our devices, we need some help from Sony's, android is a open-source project at the start, and i don't understand why her politics didn't change with her poor quality developpement about our smartphones.

If you agree with this petition, speak about on this thread, we will then arrange with Sony.

It's a good place to start our request and i think we can do great things if we persevere.

*** [You can now sign the petition online by following this link : iPetitions - Get the Sony's Sources.] ***

Quote:
Attention: Sony Mobile Development.

From: Android Community Developers.

Concerns: Xperia Smartphones.

Application: Through this petition, the community of developers using your Android smartphone wish more support from you regarding the sources that you disclose. You recently provided your help to open a project benefiting the smartphone Xperia S, however, a large proportion of developers use for development, your midrange smartphones, namely the Xperia U, P, Sola, Go We would much greater openness on your part to share our efforts and provide consumers a wider range renewed.

Yeah right, i think if we do nothing, we get nothing. I'm actually looking for the possibility of this Petition. If every developper of these devices is ready to write her name, we will probably get a return of Sony, but we need a big mobilisation, if we are 20 guys, it's gonna be to the trash. So, complete the poll and say your opinion in this thread to get a idea of motivated guys !

Edit : You do not seem motivated ! We are fighting for our freedom ! ;p

Exclamation We need our help !

Thank you guy. We need your help, there should be a show of solidarity on the part of everyone on this forum for our rights, it will permit us to be able to invest in projects more concrete and sustained, and why not extend the movement beyond Sony Smartphones, and thus make our Android devices more open and customizable.

The Sony would share everything ... the problem is most codes produced by ST-Ericsson and they're not open source! that's the catch!
