OnePlus users launch petition for Project Treble support!


During an¬†AMA¬†last week, the Chinese manufacturer officially declared that the new¬†OnePlus¬†5T¬†(but also all previous models)¬†will not support¬†Google’s¬†Project Treble.¬†¬†

This announcement has in fact baffled the users who decided to take things into their hands, by calling for a petition to ask the company to go back on its footsteps.¬†The petition was submitted on the¬†change.org¬†portal¬†and asks the whole community of¬†OnePlus¬†to re-evaluate the decision not to extend support to¬†Google’s¬†Project Treble¬†.¬†This is a request made directly to¬†Carl Pei, co-founder of the company, and¬†Pete Lau, CEO and founder.

At the moment, the petition has raised¬†little more than 5,500 signatures¬†in less than a week, and it keeps collecting more as we write this article.¬†The stated goal is¬†to attain at least 10,000 signatures, so that they users can finally have the manufacturer’s attention.

The petition is available¬†at the following link¬†if you are interested in signing.¬†project treble¬†Google’s Project¬†Treble, involves reorganizing the very architecture of¬†Android¬†in a modular fashion.¬†This way part of the system will be separated from proprietary customizations, so you can make the updates faster in release.¬†For now, Project¬†Treble¬†is only available for devices that come with¬†Android 8.0 Oreo¬†pre installed.¬†However, for manufacturers, it is possible to adapt them by making available¬†releases¬†that support the project;¬†the only downside is that this would require a complete re-elaboration of the proprietary firmware.¬†This is probably the very thing that¬†OnePlus¬†he would like to avoid doing.

What do you think Gizchina fans? Can we give a hand and make them think again perhaps?

    This is getting blown way out for no good reason. People really don’t understand what it means and the idiots over at xda are just, making it worse.
