Will Android be open source too?
#1
This is the third time I've asked this, first in message, then as a comment after the pledge, but still nobody could or was willing to answer me if Android sources will be published or not. Well, the kernel sources will have to be published but I don't know if the AllWinner Android source is proprietary or not. the Mali source is closed source, if I'm not mistaken.

So please somebody tell me if there will be repositories to build Android for then PINE 64 from the AOSP source, or not.

PINE A64+ and PINE A64-LTS share sames SDK source. The only different is PINE A64+ memory configuration set as DDR3 and PINE A64-LTS sets as LPDDR3.
