Hi there,

I was just searching through Google to see if huawei had released the source code for Honor 8x.

Guess what!!!!

It is there in the open kirin website. I've downloaded it but I'm not a dev.

So I'm sharing this here so that someone with kirin soc development experience can work with this and possibly, get the development going for Honor 8x.

Here is the link.

Are there no developers willing to develop for this phone?

I think only because of bootloader unlock not available officially for Honor anymore.

How do they find the code to unlock it ? Do they pay Huawei to give them the code or ?

I know it's crazy no one has picked up development for it but I know it's the whole bootloader thing that is turning people off it sucks
