AOSP Support for MediaTek Devices

Dear MediaTek,

Lots of people have bough Android devices with MediaTek chips inside.

For many of those people, trying to keep their devices updated to the latest version of Android has been an exercise in futility.

The main issue with your platform seems to be it's closed nature.

Because of that, it's extremely difficult for the Android developer community to provide any support for devices that rely on MediaTek chips.

Please, openly provide all necessary binaries and source, so there can be proper Android developer community support for MediaTek based devices.

Basically, full support for AOSP + Custom ROMs.

You could aim to be the "Asian Nexus" and reap all the benefits of the Android developer community enthusiasts.

Thanks in advance.

Regards.

  • ChrisL 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!
    Consider...

  • Fabien Lusseau 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.

  • Michał Well, firend of mine asked about phone I bought. Right now - my answer is - do not repeat my mistake, buy something without mediatek...
