Some manufactures lately show that they are not afraid in the new and are open to challenges, by giving their source code of their devices to third party developers. We must not forget for example Vernee, that gave the source code for their Vernee Thor model. Elephone has just entered this group of manufacturers, for its P9000.
This will give the ability to modders and developers to start working on their own custom ROM firmware.
If you are a modder or developer, then you should better check the Elephone P9000 specificiations here and the P9000 kernel details here.
