Xiaomi promises that it will release the source code of its devices after three months

Speaking of Xiaomi, is talking about MIUI, and in the case of My A1, Android One. A firm loved by many users, with a spectacular quality-price ratio . However, as far as software is concerned, it is not a firm that shines on its merits. The late release of the source code of Xiaomi is, according to developers, unacceptable , and that is that Francisco Franco lashed out against Xiaomi , for the incredible delay in releasing the My A1 code.

Today, we tell you that Xiaomi has taken good note of the criticism, and is committed to release the source code of your terminals in a period of, at most, 3 months after its launch.

Xiaomi will release security patches “on time”

Although we do not understand why Xiaomi does not release the security patches a few days after the launch of the devices, like other companies such as OnePlus, we applaud the decision to, finally, adapt to Google’s standards . As we read in Android Police , Xiaomi has set a deadline of three months to release the code of its new devices .

The General Public License v2 (GPLv2) obliges manufacturers to release the source code, and Xiaomi was taking too long, even in the case of Android One . This prevents developers from working on these devices, something that the community suffers and communicates through large forums such as XDA Developers.

With this news, Xiaomi users can be sure that the community will start moving much faster , as long as Xiaomi keeps his word – remember that they did not meet the code release dates in the Xiaomi Mi A1 -. We hope that this is a sign of honesty and good work, and that all Xiaomi users can enjoy the release of the code, since it opens a world of possibilities at the moment this happens.
