Hi!

We can fix a lot of S3 Mini bugs like poor battery life or low audio quality and much much more, but only with your help.

These bugs are caused by OS kernel which is not up-to-date with stock ROM’s and Samsung is refusing to update it. Our previous requests have been ignored by them, and the point is that Samsung have to update it, they are just forced by law and licensing terms of Linux, however they just don’t want to do this because of some unknown reason.

We think that the only way to get an updated source code is to… Show the power of our community and spam them with request messages. That’s the only way to fix A LOT of S3 Mini bugs still present. Ace 2 community have done this before with a great success, so we can do this too!

It’s a nasty way, but it’s the only thing we can do as a community, because our previous requests had been ignored.

We’d be very pleased if you want to help us. It’s easy, just send them the message provided below:

 

Contact form: http://opensource.samsung.com/reception/receptionSub.do?method=inquiryView

Inquiry type: Request for Source Codes

Sample message:

I’d like to request the most recent Linux kernel source code for Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini i8190. Source code already available on Samsung Opensource is very outdated and not up-to-date with Samsung internal source code, which can be proved.

According to GNU GPL license you are obliged to publish any source code you had changed in Linux kernel, and you are violating law by not publishing it.

Please, stop pretending that current kernel is up-to-date and just update it. Community have had enough waiting for you to even answer to our requests.

 

Thanks in advance!
