An email has been sent to STMicroelectronics regarding permission for the usage of the leaked sources as no dev would use them.


--------------------------------------
Respected management
The sources for Novathor U8500 used in numerous android devices have been leaked on 26 January 2014. The developers for this chipset request permission to use these sources in the development of custom firmwares for devices in non-commercial ways to replace stock firmwares. Due to licencing of the chipset sources and Novathor's closed source policy the usage of these sources was not accepted by the developers due to legal issues.
We await your reply concerning the usage of these sources.
Thank you
--------------------------------------
Please do not spam this thread with your opinions regarding the usage of the sources. Its all up to the devs if they want to use it. If St says yes, all is well and good and if it says no then go back to closed source

their reply (if any) will be updated to this thread

They've got a complete CM11 for the Ace 2 with everything working if you check their dev section. I hope we get similar as no offence to FXP, but CM9 is pretty slow, I've hoping we benefit from project butter + the KK memory improvements.
