In a video I posted back in April, RockChip Vice President Chen Feng promised that they were working towards becoming a more open company. Ultimately most people are hoping this means releasing their Android source, but for now the first step has been taken and they’ve released a Linux source code for their RK3188 SoC. Whilst this doesn’t mean much for end users in the immediate future, it means a lot for developers trying to port Linux distributions to RK3188 devices such as the Ugoos UG007B, a myriad of tablets and hopefully in the future, some handhelds.
If you’re interested in taking a look, you can check it out in github.
Who knows how far this will go, for now I’m just going to sit back and imagine a super powerful handheld running OpenDingux*. Drools.
*I know OpenDingux is built to run on MIPS currently, but a man can dream.
