A few weeks back there was this marvelous announcement that miui would finally release the sources to developers so that we can have new kernels etc developed.

There has been no more news since then. Any update from the mods?

I was just going to ask the same thing! Any word or information from an official source would be great.

I have a MI2s and it's one hell of a phone, but I'm tired of Xiaomi's closed mind and am thinking if I should sell the phone and wait for Nexus 5.

Please Mark, or whoever knows anything, tell us some info.

Only the kernel? That's not what I expected, I thought the whole source, so custom rom can be maked.

You only need the kernel to build other custom roms like AOSP, CM, AOKP etc.
MIUI will never be open-sourced

Aha, yea I'm new with sources and that kind of stuff. :)

Now I hope Xiaomi will release the Mi3 sources asap, that will be really nice.
