So, Being one of the first guys who post his works on Android Kernels and ROMs here on Opendesktop I have been checking this section for new works or support for my device. I noticed there are a lot of products that violate the license or kind of post “fake updates”?
I would like to list some of them that i found (I am not trying to blame the developer or anything, i just found it weird).
This kernel, he posted like 11 updates with 0 changelogs and the source he points to is updated last on august 23rd.
This kernel is also same many updates no changelogs and the source it points to is also wrong i suppose.
I don’t know what a custom recovery is doing in kernel section.
There might be others too in Kernel section.
The Android ROMs is such a mess like oh my god.
Here is one golden example.,
Its a tool to root android and is developed by topjohnwu. The guy posting it is no way related to magisk and the source he points to is also wrong. Clearly he is doing it for money.
Same goes for this, he is posting magisk and Bit google gapps when all he doing is building the ROM. So he is clearly stealing the work of john wu and thehitman(Original creator) who also have the same bitgapps hosted on pling.
One more guy stealing work… source he provided is totally wrong. Also Uploading Open gapps, magisk and Viper Audio modification libraries.
@opendesktop It would be great if you guys could take a look on the things happening in this section.
The Suggestion i can provide is that while uploading the product on android rom section they must provide the Device sources( Device trees, kernel trees and device vendor sources) too other than the ROM’s source.
Second is that guys uploading magisk or GAPPS or mirroring some else’s work as their own products should be discontinued in this section.
Thats all… Thanks.
