    Open Sourcing Mediatek - Wiko DarkMoon ; SoC MT6582
    MediaTek Development
    Being owner of an Mediatek device, means (most of the times) not having the sourcecode published by the Official vendor.
    Wiko Never published an proper JB 3.4.5 Kernel Source Code (they only gave us incompleted, and unbuildable sources).
    Plus, they never updated this phone (to KK) as promised ...

    --> Well ... This is XDA after all .....

    WELCOME to KitKat

    It should also work without any issues on the clones:
    - Micromax a200 Canvas turbo Mini (India, others) --> Confirmed working
    - BLU Life Play S ( South / North America) ---> Confirmed working
    - Myphone Agua Iceberg Slim ( Philippines , others) --> Confirmed Working
    - QMobile Noir A910 ( Pakistan, others ) --> Confirmed working
    --> If you guys have any issues on this clones, let me know
    --> Should be only a matter of changing the modem

    Hello Guys !
