Question Mediatek
Any kernel sources publicly available for Mediatek SOCs MT(K) 6575 6577 6583 6588 ? I couldn't find anything Is Mediatek open source friendly ?

PS: I ask this because I consider buying a dual sim dual active android phone and best bang for the buck seems to be offered by MT6577 devices like ZTE Grand X (V970), Huawei Ascend G500 (U8836D,U8832D) and many other chinese phones.
Also, devices based on MT658x started appearing on the market too.

It seems Mediatek is not that open source friendly, the small bits and pieces I could find on Mediatek SOC's were long outdated or really incomplete sources.

Damn

I found few customized roms for Mediatek based phones....but virualy all of them use stock unmodified kernels form manufacturers.

Did any developer (interested in Mediatek based phones) tried to contact Mediatek regarding support policy for their SOCs ? The strange thing is that, although most mediatek based phones target Asia (China, India, etc), virtually all asian developers around xda-forum seems to target high end international phone models based on more widely spread SOCs. I wonder if this is related to poor SOC support from Mediatek or just poor phones quality. Probably first one .

When I'll have enough posts to be able to post in devel section of the forum I'll try to contact Bruno Martin ( bgcngm ), the guy who released customized roms for both ZTE V970 and Huawei U8836D, maybe he have more details about Mediatek and this 2 phones.
