Hey everyone,

We at Honor want to grow our community and following.
So in doing so, we are opening/releasing the AI source, kernel source and bootloaders for the Honor View 10 to developers to be able to have access not only the AI APIs but also root and give the opportunity for rom's to be developed. We want to see what some of you can do by having access to our AI eco-system.

This is extremely exciting for us at Honor and proud to invite 1000 developers, as our sign of commitment to the community to join the Honor Open Source program.

We plan to release this program by end of January 2018. There are still details to iron out but will definitely keep everyone informed with more info.

Please visit https://store.hihonor.com/us/ to sign up to be notified. Also stay tuned to this thread as well.

Being apart of the XDA community myself as a consumer for 8 years, XDA has a close place in my heart. I appreciate and thank all the developers here, personally. I am really excited to share this news to you all.

I will reach out to the LoS and AOSPA team and others, myself as I know how important they will be.
I'm all ears from you all regarding feedback. I believe this news will be well received.

Cheers!
Chris

Update 1: To register for recruitment, please sign up here and share: https://goo.gl/forms/GEmYu75TnxUCeRu53

I've compiled a list of documents and source that developers need:
1. Kernel Source
2. Fastboot Factory images
3. NFC and Audio Amp source
4. Device trees
5. AI APIs

This is a list that I will request and also stress that any Chinese needs to be translated to English.
If there is anything else that devs may need, please feel free to let me know so I can ensure we make it happen

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Update 2:
Hope everyone is well

Big update with some exciting news to share!
We have selected the first initial developers to receive the Honor View 10. These developers are key building blocks for future development for the View 10. We're really happy to have these devs and their appropriate team on board and willing to participate with the Honor Open Source Program.

Yes, there are other important teams and developers in the community and we will provide devices to the other team members as well (LOS, AOSPA, AOSIP, DU, etc).
This is just the first, small phase of many more to come.

This should greatly jump start development once we release the kernel source publicly to download

First 9 Developers are:
@LuK1337
@topjohnwu
@franciscofranco
@luca020400
@rovo89
@OldDroid
@phhusson
@Myself5
@Dees_Troy

If all goes according to planned, kernel source should be available in the next week or two (for the EU model).

Thanks for all of your support! Hang in there and I'll keep everyone updated as more info is available :)

Cheers!
Chris

This sounds amazing! I wasn't even aware that this was in the works. Can we nominate a particular developer to receive one? If so, I nominate XDA Senior Member phhusson so he can continue his work on generic, AOSP Treble ROMs.

P.S. I'll keep in touch with the AOSPA team and update the community on how things go!
Absolutely! We want to hear feedback and I can reach out to them if tagged. Ideally we're wanting to stay in the USA, but I'll find out more info.

I have already posted on the AOSPA G+ group and have gotten in contact with the LOS team as well.

Great to hear! I'd love to subscribe to the open source program when it's available.

I'd like to nominate @chadouming to receive a device for his contributions to upstreaming the use of toolchains used when compiling Android and for having taken on the Uber project as a whole when Chet Kener left development. He puts so much time into projects and his work to make it stand out. I can't stress his contributions enough. Check out his GitHub profile:

Nicely said Chris! Now I definitely want to get my hands on the View10! However, if I am not mistaken, the one that was released does not have US LTE bands correct? If I purchase the chinese version, can the LTE bands be unlocked or do I have to wait for the US/Global version? Also when will it be released?

+1 Chris. The Honor view 10 sold in India has no support for LTE bands used by USA carriers. So if I purchase my view 10 from India can additional LTE bands be unlocked manually. I am eager to get my hands on view 10 (sold in India and not Chinese version )but the lack of LTE bands used by USA carriers is the only thing holding me back.

This is tremendous news and i think having developers have access to bootloader and ai will really expand the potential for this device and the user experience. Look forward to being involved.

One of the biggest issue with the honor source for the kernel was the fact that a lot of it was in un-translable Chinese. If you guys help with the translation I am sure Honor devices would get far more custom rom development. It's one of the things that prevented me from getting the device. I only buy devices I can build aosp for.
