Re: Android Source Code

Jane,

 

The mods have proven that they are very fast to ban someone or delete a post. How about removing the Solved flag from this topic?

 

This topic is not Solved and should not be presented that way.

 

Thank you

The source code posted is unusable thats why they dont want it to be classified solved. There is a big difference with just uploading a bunch of text files when compiled doesnt work than one that when compiled actually works.

again, that is what Mark was given. Same difference with my phones, the codes once put together do not work.

All I am trying to say is Mark had the post marked as Solved. In all honesty it is Solved. Whether or not the codes are complete he posted what was released. He did mention some of the K1's code is not open source and is unable to get the code from them.

And being peer to peer, everyone complaining here makes no difference.

All we can do is wait.

The source code you linked to for the A1 is incomplete and useless in its current form.

 

The source code for the K1 is not valid as it does not line up with the hardware inside the K1.

 

Just because something has been posted does not make the issue solved. Those .zips posted are incomplete, or not valid and have only angered the development community even more.

 

I understand this is a community supported forum but this topic is not Solved and should not be presented that way.

 

Perhaps the mods should have waited for someone to confirm the kernel source was complete and worked before marking the topic "Solved".

 

Edit:

MrPeter how can you say this when the only reason the TPT source code and the pieces of the K1 and A1 source code that have been released are from us communicating on this forum?

@JaneL has, in fact, hit on an interesting way -- mathematically perfectly valid -- to truly solve the problem. When you think about it, there are two sides to this equation in which customers are rightfully demanding access to working source code as mandated by the GPL. We've all been focusing on the side of the equation that requires Lenovo to provide said code. Of course, @JaneL has seen the other side of the equation for the easier solution. Eliminate the customers. Kudos, @JaneL, for the innovative approach. And lets not forget @MrPeter1985 for so artfully defending the mess and pointing out that it's useless to complain here so soon after being reminded that organizing an effective complaint is verboten. I lift a virtual beer to toast you both.

Wow ! Are you serious ?!? Go to the car dealer, buy a car. What will you do when you'll see there's no seats ? You didn't ask for a car with seats ! Don't complain about it, that's your fault.

 

Seriously, should the title ask for valid source code, not just some random line of codes ?

Exactly, You didn't buy the tablet with an agreement for the source to be released with your product.

 

So what am I to do about my Samsung phone then? Jump all over their forum and demand it? I think not.

 

All I'm trying to say, like I have many times before, we can only wait. I am in the same boat, what makes it any different?

I still hope you are not serious. Of course I bought the tablet expecting the source code to be release because Lenovo should release it.

Stop comparing the K1 with your previous phone, even if MrPeter did not received his source code for his phone, that doesn't mean that Lenovo doesn't have to release the source code.

First you should verify carefully that there is a problem with the source and it's not just that you're doing something wrong - it sounds like in your situation that there really is a problem with the code, if a lot of developers have tried and failed. You should then get in touch with Samsung, politely explain the problems you are having in compiling the code, and why you think the problems are because of the source release, and ask that they rectify the source release. 

 

If they don't provide any channels for you to actually get in touch with them, you might be forced to try to contact them via their forum - it's not necessarily the first thing you should try. Ideally Samsung would provide some channel where you can feedback on their source releases, but if they don't then there's little else you can do.
