So this is my very first attempt in any kind of android development. I have here my phone's official kernel source. I was wondering if I can build this to boot or if it's ready for building.

Also this phone is bootloader locked and there's no official or unofficial way to unlock it. So what can I do with the source or the boot image ?

    source code is released to comply with GPL license only, it's useless on locked devices

  • I figure out this is the whole phone open source. I'm sure I can break into it and root/unlock it somehow Commented Jun 27, 2021 at 1:28
  • what if I can build it as singed image so I can flash it using the locked bootloader or even use EDL mode Commented Jun 27, 2021 at 7:28
  • doubt you can sign you don't have OEM keys. even EDL mode is impossible without OEM signed firehose programmer

  • I found stock rom/firmware ​for the phone and I think we can do a lot with a locked bootloader Commented Jun 27, 2021 at 17:52
