Huawei announces roll out schedule for the much awaited Honor Open Source Program for the Honor View 10. It aims to provide much-needed kernel sources, an essential part of custom ROM development and application programming interfaces (APIs). Developers will be able to take advantage of AI capabilities in chips like Huawei’s Kirin processor.

They are opening the AI source and bootloaders for the Honor View 10 to developers to be able to have access not only the AI APIs, but also root and give the opportunity ROMs. The company is excited to see how developers will play and what they generate, thanks to the access given to their AI ecosystem.

The Honor Open Source Program for the Honor View 10’s pegged for a late January 2018 rollout. With access to Huawei’s open AI ecosystem, there’s no telling what exciting applications and ROMs developers will make. Not only this, 1,000 developers will get Honor View 10 units to get popular custom ROM developers off the races. For the same, they have already contacted the Paranoid Android and LineageOS teams. It is a great opportunity for both, developers interested in nabbing a phone for themselves and looking for access to the Huawei AI ecosystem.
