elephone p8000 source code

Elephone may well be the first company to ever release the source code for a Mediatek Chinese phone with P8000 code available soon and the hunt for developers now on.

You should all probably be aware now that Elephone aren’t your usual Chinese phone maker. They tent to launch handfuls of phones at a time and were one of the first Chinese phone makers to bring alternate ROMs to their Mediatek powered phones.

Continuing on from this, Elephone have revealed that they will be releasing the Kernel source code for the Elephone P8000. The P8000 is a 5.5-inch FHD phone with octacore Mediatek chip, 3GB RAM and runs Android 5.1 out of the box. The release of source code will allow developers to build their own ROMS for the phone either based on things like CyanogenMod or even a whole new system of their dreams.


Elephone are also taking the opportunity to seek our developers who are interested in Joining Elephone to build custom ROMS. Those who are invested are asked to send their details to Elephone via the recruitment page here.
