And a kudo to @gmarkall. You have to love the "one other vendor gets it wrong once, thus it's fine for Lenovo to get it wrong consistently across all devices" attitude. Samsung has a whole website devoted to developers, one function of which is distributing the code. If its wrong, all outward appearances suggest they'd like to get it right. Contrast that with this situation.

"Exactly, You didn't buy the tablet with an agreement for the source to be released with your product." Um... wrong. I bought and Android device with full knowledge of the GPL. Android device == kernel source. It's a reason to go Android and not iOS. It's like buying a sound system with THX... the name itself implies certain standards and affordances. You could not be more absolutely dead wrong than you are in that one sentence.

gmarkall and others interested in A1,

 

Still working on the missing items and the boot loaders - x-loader and U-boot.   Probably several more days to get a complete package and update the link for download. 

 

Sorry for the delay.   Please bear with us a bit longer.

 

Thanks.


 

 

4 weeks have almost past since your last update. Any progress since then?

Yes,

 

We updated the A1 source package overnight and believe it is complete.  Gmarkall is testing and should have additional feedback.

 

Still looking into the K1.

 

Thanks

Do let us know if you need someone to test it out, before a public announcement.

Im more than willing to be the tester.

 

Thanks

Re: Android Source Code

All,

 

I realize there is some contention on having marked this discussion solved - it was not my intention to anger the developers.   I marked the post as a solution to guide people who don't want to read through many pages of discussion to get to the links for download.

 

Without this, there are some who may think we never responded on this matter, and I don't think that is quite fair either.

 

We'll look for further feedback on the A1 code and we can review if additional changes are needed.

 

We are also continuing to look into the K1 - I appreciate the detailed feedback from khanning and krook1.  

 

Best regards,

 

Mark
