I am looking at the list of devices covered by this xda-dev posting - most
interesting is the Samsung Galaxy Nexus - again, this is a reference
handset, something that in the past was in the hands of developers only,
but now many people around the world are using.
So that's very interesting, which was the point of my OP - the google
nexus phones represent a particularly ripe avenue for osmocom since they
are reference handsets, and presumably the "warez" that you need are in
many more hands than previous chipset docs and code. Perhaps there is a
flaw in my assumption ?
The bad news is that the list of devices from the xda-dev posting does NOT
include the Galaxy S II GT-i9100, which was mentioned earlier in this
- how did the calypso docs leak in the first place ? Was it indeed a real
breach of intellectual property, or did they just get published by TI
since they were uninteresting in some way ? How nefarious is the story
- What would it actually cost to get the documentation and code needed for
either of these two items we are discussing above ? If I go to Qualcomm
and sign up as a developer (under a corp name, etc.) .... is it $10k ?
$100k ? Or are the docs you need not available at any price ?
I would like to think that the "warez" needed for one of these targets are
so widely distributed (because of the android ecosystem and the aggressive
push there) that simply putting out a loud and wide "call for leaks" would
yield some results...
