    Hi all,

    does someone know where to find the OnePlus 2 kernel sources?

    I would like to look into it and check feasibility of creating a custom kernel (as I did for the OnePlus One already for OOS and CM / COS).

    Thanks for letting me know.

    @OnePlus team: Please note you have to disclose kernel sources according to Linux Kernel GPL. I just add that, as I had no good experiences with your cooperation on basic questions in the past in the OnePlus One area. So good opportunity for you to step up as well along with the new device.

    Indeed. But I am quite pessimistic, I think nobody from oneplus team will ever answer. I had this experience enough.

    And when we are lucky we see kernel sources in 2 months...

    Why not? What is wrong with creating a proper kernel for the op2?

    Yes, you might be right. They will likely never answer directly. They never did in the past.

    BUT - they have to give the kernel source out. This is law, and this also applies to OnePlus. So in worst case they could even be sued.

    Sooner or later we will therefore get hold of the kernel sources. How much of use they are is something else, they made it already hard with the sources provided for the OPO.

    It will be released.

    Tried to ask about it, but there is not a time schedule yet.

    Just patience :)

    I hope they do release sources for the kernel.
    That's the least they can do for freelance developers, as their own pool of developers came from these hobbyist devs.

    This is why I have patience waiting for an invite. The device will not become my daily driver till I can run a custom kernel and rom on it.

    I have faith in the OOS team that they will EVENTUALLY release it. As they have been community developers before too, I know they understand our eagerness!!
