Elephone P8000 shipping 25th July source code already available

elephone p8000 source code

Just as promised, Elephone have released the kernel source code for the Elephone P8000 publicly to devs to get their hands on.

Elephone has really made an effort to embrace the Android dev community. From releasing their own versions of MIUI and Flyme for their popular range of phones, to launching their own UI, Elephone and flash tool, Elephone have offered plenty of options for fans wanting to customise their smartphone experience.

Gizchina News of the week

For the Elephone P8000, the company has gone a step further by releasing the source code to the phone, allowing developers to build their own custom ROMs for the 5.5-inch device. Elephone have released the code on Github where it can be downloaded now, 2 days ahead of the release of the Elephone P8000 phone on the 25th July.

The Elephone P8000 follows on from the P7000 with 5.5-inch display, fingerprint scanner and 3GB RAM but features slightly smaller bezels, a different design, MT6753 chipset, 4165mAh battery and 13 mega-pixel Samsung main camera.

    I don’t really know if upon this code Devs can already work or they need more, MTK code specific, Don’t really know much about linux coding. Btw this is a great step, I really don’t like of any current Elephone device, and they look cheap, but this is a Big step rather than announcing phones every week, they are now doing something really good, would be a dream if other companies try the same, and start to open their minds about custom development, and perhaps the MTK mind.

    This is amazing news ! I will order mine very soon even if i own a p7000 because the open source code means a lot of custom ro and optimisation = long phone lifetime ! 🙂
