Big edit here
Let’s forget this poll idea, I did it really badly, that was useless.
So thanks to @lissyx help now it’s a bit more clear:
For the moment, the main supported phones are Z3C and Flame. There are builds for them, people help to fix builds issues, and so on.
We could start “officially” (as a community effort) starts to maintain more devices, it already possible on a lot of Xperia devices, some Nexus, Fairphone 2, Open C (…) - because there were supporting Firefox OS, and they can adapt to Cyanogen Mod (or AOSP for Xperia devices).
So we need help to build for those devices, and make change to get them working if needed - and maintain it after that.
Who can help on this point ? For instance by making builds, or testing them.
Regarding the Cyanogen Mod part, there are some need of help making gonk working with CM 13 base (and not the previous CM 12). If there is C/C++ devs’ here, come on
Hello everyone !
As said during the transition meeting today, it can be a good idea to make a quick poll to know which devices you use, or want to use if it’s supported.
Right now the Z3C is officially supported, Flame is working too. They are the “core” of the supported phone list, used by developers as reference.
We now need to understand which phones will be the more useful for the community, in the first time to contribute, and in a second time to use it.
Here is a quick poll, if you have a phone in mind that is not in this list, I will manage to add it
Don’t forget to add phones that you know people use a lot, like Open C for french people.
Xperia family devices (please, precise which model)
Other Nexus devices ? (please, precise which model)
Galaxy family devices (please, precise which model)
S4 was supported by Firefox OS
Is it possible ?
Any other ? Please add details below (and vote)
NB: Something that can be useful, when you add a new device into the last, try to know what CyanogenMod version it support (CM 11/12/13). This can help to understand what device can (not) be ported.
Also if you can help for porting a device, please say it ! It can be just testing, or also building, doing some code, filing bugs…
If you have any background in CM port/building, please say it too.
Let’s vote !
Post Scriptum: I just want to share an idea here, fell free to react.
If for instance we can support 3 phones, I would suggest that apart from the easiness fact, we should focus on have an high-end phone, a middle-end and an affordable device (we need also to think about contributors from developing countries, that could need a cheap device).
In that way, we allow contributors to have a phone that fits their need: an high-end one for those that want it, and cheaper one for those that can’t afford expensive phones / have 1+ phones and buy some phone to help porting.
Let’s give and example: Open C as a cheap device, Xperia E4/M2 as a middle-end phone, Nexus 5 as high-end phone.
What’s your toughs ?
