HMD has finally shifted into a higher gear when it comes to meeting the obligation under which the company uses the open-source software. Basically, to use open source software, HMD has to publish the changes it made, the whole software for which it used the open-source code or something in between, depending on the type of the license. HMD’s kernel list has grown nicely over the past few weeks, with Nokia 6.1 Plus and Nokia 7.1 being the latest additions.
The list now includes almost all Nokia smartphones, without the Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 5, Nokia 3.1 Plus and Nokia 2. I hope HMD will also shift in a higher gear regarding bootloader unlocking, because having Android enthusiast using your device is a good thing for support in form of custom ROMs after HMD official support expires or in general to target a bigger audience.
