Re: Whats after the Oreo Release?

That statement about Blackview not releasing the source codes, and the secrecy behind it, makes me think Blackview developers are using software they shouldn't be using (i.e. some unlicensed piece of code from third parties) and releasing the code would reveal that. Maybe I'm wrong, but that's what all this leads me to think. Anyone else thought of reverse engineering?

I'm overall happy with my BV8000, and was happier when it was updated monthly or bi-monthly on Nougat (except for the security patches not being updated) but I'm also pretty sure that my next phone won't be a Blackview. Maybe the next Pocophone, when they release an 8 Gb RAM phone or something like that, but definitely not Blackview.

Don't worry, it's not about secret or scam hidden software but about policies between our internal departments. Our ROMS are not the most clear from bugs, but don't spy the final user in any way (Google is already doing that..).

Don't worry, I'm not saying you're spying on us (I'm not Donald Trump). Just saying that your user base would definitely improve if your devices were more opensource-friendly. Most users of Chinese phones know that they usually need lots more tweaking than models from Samsung and others. I've been working with Chinese phones and brands for years and almost always a custom ROM (something you can only get on opensource-friendly phones) was needed in order to solve the bugs the company didn't have the time to address. And the same opensource-friendly dynamics then allow the phone manufacturer to incorporate in their stock ROMS solutions provided by the community (giving credit where credit is due). It's a give and take relationship between the company and the community, beneficial to all parties involved. That's the opensource idea, something that even Microsoft is embracing these days.

Is there a possibility for the update of Oreo to be available before the end of the year?
I'm a software developer, see my projects if you're interested.

Dear Blackview_admin! It's November now, but there is no available update yet. Does it mean, that Blackview has stopped supporting BV8000?
