OnePlus released GPL parts of the kernel source already. They do it in the most minimally legal, maximally scummy way possible. They're so far gone from the ideals that made them successful in the beginning, its sad. Hopefully people will stop giving them moneyIt appears OnePlus still has not released OOS 12 Kernel source. (<-- Github link)
See these issue links in particular:
Where are the DTS in the OOS12 kernel source?
GPL Violation: OOS12 kernel_oneplus_sm8250 sources have not been released
I linked to two of these issues, there are a ton of them actually, they are scattered across Github, across many devices. Then again across many Reddit threads. OnePlus apprently doesn't care about GPL and doesn't care about releasing the code as they are supposed to.
If you're reading this, you'll probably get even angrier
Yes I know. That's why I wonder why there's still no lineage 19 for the 8tIf you're reading this, you'll probably get even angrier
AOSP for OnePlus 5/5T - Android 13 /* * Your warranty is now void. * * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please * do some research if you have any...forum.xda-developers.com
ngl but stats are really irrelevant here.Probably because people are essentially still complaining about it.... It's kind of like asking for ETAs.
Lineage Stats. The 8T is fairly low on the list compared to the say the 5T, or the 6T, or the 9, 9 Pro, other devices that have been mentioned.... I'd say be happy with the support we've got.
There's even a donate in the OP, if you really want to say thanks. Just make sure it's it's a donation / thank you, not a bounty for a LOS 19.
For now we got LOS 18 we, at least it works well.
Hey Luk , I have S12 which is Color OS and since it is COS , Oppo , and Vivo lock there bootloader and there is no Custom roming for these 2 brands or unlocking the boot loader, is that what's happening to the 8t ,
No idea what you're talking about.
Are you asking if the bootloader was retroactively locked? OnePlus does not lock bootloaders. Never have. The cell carriers who offer OnePlus phones do, but they also offer unlock codes when certain criteria are met.
In the beginning, one plus was very developer friendly. They work with the custom firmware community, and even when they stopped working directly with the community they continued to be supportive of it. None of that is true any longer. They are now an active hurdle to custom firmware development. They are not posting the code they are legally supposed to, and when they do it's often late and incomplete. Which means the developers have to work 10 times harder to make anything work, or they can just develop for pixels or other more supportive brands.
Unless things changed dramatically at oneplus, this is just a taste of how bad things will get. So enjoy this, it's probably the best our oneplus devices will ever be, custom firmware wise. It's all down hill from here
Yep, I'm offering free LineageOS conversions for the 5 people I know personally who were dumb enough to listen to me about buying OnePlus phones. Seems like the least I can do.Yeah, I had two Honor 5xs, got unlock codes from Huawei, also last Huawei devices I ever bought.
The worst part is I don't think OnePlus realizes the extent of what they are doing. I realize "enthusiasts" that run custom software are a very small percentage of sales. It doesn't matter that most of us have a stack of OnePlus devices. However how many people around you have you recommended a OnePlus device to? Just recently I had my mom order a new OnePlus device, she just runs OOS, but it was a cheap, decent phone for her. As tech enthusiasts, people generally ask people like "us" what they should get. OnePlus can alienate whoever they want. However if the tech crowd switches brands, OnePlus's already pretty small slice of the pie is probably going to get smaller...
/off topic rant....
Yep, good call. Let's get this thread back on track. Sorry @LuK1337, collective venting completed. We all appreciate you, especially since OnePlus is making it an increasingly uphill battle. We're very lucky, and grateful, you're still willing to deal with all this BS to bring us awesome custom firmwares.@OhioYJ and @thefanum Only slightly going to keep this Off Topic going. I agree OnePlus is no longer Dev friendly like they used to be, and there are many reasons to support this conclusion which includes the fact that the Kernel Source Code issue started in OP5 times (that was when the nightmare really started being obvious I noticed). Also enthusiasts did build OnePlus, after all OnePlus' Official OS was CyanogenOS which was the corporatized version of CyanogenMod (you can read the history of that mess here https://www.androidauthority.com/cyanogenmod-lineageos-654810/).
