    I think it's not lazyness, it' lack of developers - they are busy with porting MIUI6 on other newer devices then old MI2...

    they are lazy. We have 1-2 Developers in xiaomi.eu. M1ha chief, and he copes. They need to think again.
     
  6. Just look at what nexus4 has :)
    Nexus4 even has the latest drivers for gpu, audio, camera,...

    I think this will stop here though because qualcomm doesn't provide a 3.10 kernel for this SoC.
    That doesn't mean we don't get updates anymore because the 3.4 kernel still is compatible.

    But havent they provided 3.4 source for old MSM8255,I dont see a reason for them to dont do same for MSM8960/APQ8064.
    Do drivers for camera,gps and audio even matter since this functions just need to work "properly" and for generic drivers like GPU its portable.
     
  9. @XperianPro The reason is that the 3.10 kernel was cleaned up to support devices with FDT(FlattenedDeviceTree) only.
    apq8064 is one of these old SoC's without FDT and qcom is not gonna rewrite the whole code and publish new bootloaders to do so.
