As we knew that Xiaomi gave us broken kernel source, so we currently not able to compete adequately with MIUI because we don't have all the sources needed to maximize the performance of our hardware. So, with the existence of CAF (I might not completely understand the whole situation and what actually CAF is), in your opinion, how are our chances to emulate the power of MIUI on our device using LOS based roms?
Copying and pasting from one of AOSP-CAF threads:
What's CodeAurora Forums ?
Code Aurora Forum (CAF) is a consortium of companies with projects serving the mobile wireless industry. Software projects it concerns itself with are e.g. Android for MSM, Femto Linux Project, LLVM, MSM WLAN and Linux-MSM. Code Aurora is basically AOSP plus all Qualcomm specific enhancements and optimization.
So instead of saying "based on LineageOS 14.1 kernel source", I say that it based on CAF kernel source with LineageOS updates and patches; typically because anupritaisno1 doesn't like that mentioning.
And yes, we have chances, but not 100% unless proprietary Xiaomi stuffs are open-sourced.
