You would gain far more in usable code and international reputation with the people that tell others what to buy than you could ever possibly lose through reverse engineering the small parts of your platform that are not licenced from others.
It would mean apps wold work better, it will make you more appealing to higher end manufacturers.
It would also just be the right thing to do since you are relying on open source software (android/linux) developed this way in the 1st place for your survival
I consider buying MTK6592/MTK6589T china phones. However without support for AOSP + Custom ROMs (CyanogenMod) I will wait to do so.
Best support is only possible trough openess!
I'm a big fan of Mediatek phones and I will love to have the right to enjoy it at its fullest.
Mediatek is doing an awesome job to keep the price low and giving the needed performance at the same time.
Francesco Pasa3 days ago Comments: MediaTek chips are great, they offer good performance for a small price. However one thing is missing: open source drivers to let the community make the devices actually work. Hardware is nothing without software. I think opening the driver sources will benefit everyone: the users will get awesome support, MediaTek will become more attractive for more users and will gain in popularity. Not to mention that if you MediaTek wants to enter the Chromebook market, this will double the benefits for everyone.

Jason4 weeks ago Comments: The only thing that holds me back to buy a mediatek based phone is that there is no custom rom,kernal for it. Please change your policy.
