The Xiaomi Mi A1 is one of the most interesting smartphones available in the low midrange, presented a balanced set of specifications, for a price per standard, well below $ 245. The fact of running Android One is a plus point for all who prefer Google’s Android, getting to MIUI for Xiaomi fans.
The Chinese brand has fulfilled its promise, has made available the update for Android 8.0 Oreo, on the last day of 2018, which certainly pleased who bought this smartphone. This update, however, was not accompanied by the availability of the Kernel source code, which is contrary to the GNU General Public License, version 2 ( GPLv2 ).
Two and a half months after launching the update with Android Oreo, Xiaomi now provides the Kernel source code for this version of Android, which can be found on GitHub (Tissot-o-oss branch).
They are therefore good news for those who develop ROMs and of course for all those who are adept with a modified Android. So the doors are open, now it’s time to wait for the first proposals, which, as usual, should arrive via XDA.
There’s a lot to like about the Xiaomi Mi A1 — you get a Full HD display, Snapdragon 625, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, 3080mAh battery, and Android 7.1.2 Nougat out of the box with the August security patch. The highlight is the dual 12MP cameras at the back, with Xiaomi offering a similar configuration as the flagship Mi 6.
