Hello Dear Community,

Today is an exceptional day that will surely be even more.

I represent the company IUNI which has since ceased to exist.

I want to convey that we had unfairly kept the open source code instead of sharing it.
If we had shared it from the start we would surely not be there right now.
The IUNI U3 would surely have been the biggest One Plus rival at this time if the sources had been released.
We might not be dead at the present time...
However, before completely disappearing, we must repair injustices.

We release the source code of devices that we still have in possessions:
https://gitlab.com/iuni

And we call on the former developer to share the sources of the society in their possessions to the community.

Download it, distribute it, study it, modify it and let the company keep on living through sharing!

Finally, we have a game, a challenge to launch to the community!
If using these sources you (the community) manage to bring the IUNI U3 to the latest version of android stock we will share a last surprise that will be grand before we completely disappear.

For it is in uniqueness that we forge our own personality.
That each of us is unique.

With love,
IUNI


UPDATE - AS PROMISED:

To our delight we had the honor to see motivated contributions for the IUNI U2 and U3.

In view of evolution, it is now our turn to keep our promise.
We promised a last surprise for the community.
We put, in this surprise, all our heart in its conception, it was our identity, our strength and we bequeath you.

Please, check the spoiler to now our gift for you, the community:



IUNI OS is our last farewell gift for you.
It's not all, U3 and N1 repos are completed and compilable., also a documentation has been added.


We hope that this newcomer to the open source scene will delight you and will offer an additional alternative among custom roms.

It is with the greatest affection that we say goodbye to you.
Each of you is unique

With love,
IUNI Team

PS: Oh... One last thing... :rolleyes:

FAQ:

What about the sources for the IUNI U2 and i1?

We're very sorry, we only have the source code of the IUNI U3 and N1 in our possession.
The rest of the source code is kept by Gionee who refuses to share it.
That's why we call on the former developer to share the sources of IUNI in their possessions to the community.
We hope that this call will allow us to retrieve the source codes of the remaining phones from former employees.
Each recovered source code will be automatically transferred to the GitLab.

Hello, dear representative of IUNI!
Please, can you post the sources for IUNI U2?
We really need them.

Please for IUNI U2!

Good luck with that! Me and my friend, we've tried reaching out to Gionee/Allview/Walton/IUNI. The only ones who replied were Allview, who kindly said no. You will probably have more luck if you contact these developers on Baidu/Weibo, Chinese Gionee forums, have you already tried that?

Our former employees have been contacted by bulk email.
However, each of them signed a contract prohibiting them from broadcasting the source code. So those who have retained a copy will not dare to admit it to us because the contract prohibits them to keep files. A forum is a good place to share because it allows them to not be recognized.

In the past, we received a lot of email about source code request. As had been recurring our communication services had sent an answer on Weibo and on our official website.

Hello Sooraj,

We are delighted of your motivation.
Unfortunately we have no stock in our possessions.
We're going to get in touch with sellers and we'll keep you informed when we find something.

Fantastic news, I gave this great device to my father, his first real smartphone, and he is enjoying it. I have loved this phone and I would have kept it if my wife wouldn't have bought me another one. Thanks for the effort, hope we will have nice roms!

Hi there IUNI team,

Is there any way community can contact with Gionee re-presenter and ask him to provide source code?
Or at least to answer on the question: if there is any possibility that source code will be provided in near future?

Thanks.

If I say, it will no longer be a surprise.
Nevertheless this surprise will not only be for former users of IUNI but for the entire Android community. ;)

Hi JesusFD,

Unless to be a powerful press, they will certainly not accept to communicate about it. You can always try by joining them on their LinkedIn in open letter.

Gionee will never want to release the source code because they are on a debit strategy. They aim to sell as many smartphones as possible and design as many models as possible. The release of the source code affects them in the long term. Because by releasing the source code the lifetime of the smartphone is lengthened and Gionee loses control of its programmed obsolescence, so the number of purchase decreases. By not releasing the source code Gionee can force its users to buy the top model by stopping to update the old one. They refuses to release the source code because, according to them, they risk losing money.

Even if the release of the source code is the best strategy, they will not accept it unless they are subjected to strong pressure that could jeopardize their business.

This is indeed a great step. Just letting you know that your team (behind release) has done a great job and this might be a game-changer and even get developers to buy the devices who can't afford the expensive ones.
Cheers. :good:

Do you have a way to release fresh Qualcomm/Mediatek vendor source? MSM8996 for example. It would be the greatest achievment, as many OEMs just fill the original source with bugs, providing only prebuilt libs :/ Or maybe this is the surprise? ;)

Hi @IUNI_Source,
i already building rom for iuni u2 without source.
Also you didn't share u2 kernel source.
LineageOS 14.1 working fully except camera on IUNI U2.
This is my source : https://github.com/feroxx
And this is my last build for u2: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=961840155545590613
Any gift for me?

Incredible, you just prove that you are a genius!
It is a pity that I no longer have the source code of IUNI U2 in my possession. It could have solved your camera problem.
In this case I would have a bonus, a gift to offer to the community in your name in addition to the surprise. ;)

Indeed this could allow developers to work on a fully released machine without the slightest restriction for a small price.

Hello
If it can help

N1

U3 still on sale in nepal


here u3

It helps a lot, thanks.

I would not say anything about the surprise. And it will have nothing to do with chipset source code. However you can start to thank @feroxxx... ;)

But do you have some contact I/you could reach for a chance to get this source? Your source for U3 would greatly help 2013-2014 devices in their days, but now the community would benefit greatly only from the fresh source :/
