It looks like @MIUIrom released the source to Jamezelle and nix. Very excited :grin3:
To clarify, MIUI did not release any source code to us. We are trying to work with them to integrate the LTE changes directly in MIUI but we aren't hopeful. We do have slayhers CM7 source code with the associated LTE changes and I've been slowly processing them and merging the compiled code together.

As far as a donation/bounty goes... don't give me anything up front. jamezelle and I are going to work on this regardless.. if we make it happen.. do what you want :)

Here's a question.. So once the official MIUI phone drops, will the devs have to release the source code for MIUI?? I'm hoping so.
Nope.. the only thing they are required to release is the kernel source code. The rest of Android is licensed under an Apache License which does not require source code to be released. We also asked MIUI if they had any plans of open sourcing and they said no.

I think there's some drama going on within MIUI. I'm not privy to it but things haven't been quite right for the past ~4 months with the MIUI folks from what I've read in between the lines of (aka. their forums being suddenly unavailable, later moved to a new server, and then some devs ditching the forums yet still working on ports). So imho it has nothing to do with TBolt/MIUI but more has to do with the MIUI community itself.

I hope I'm wrong and they just get it working, though!
Nah.. it was a mistake. I had all the threads reopened as jamezelle and I are still hacking away at it. The sheer number of commits we have to merge in is mind-numbing. Add on top of this the fact that we don't have the luxury of source code and we have to deal with smali and it's even more hellish.

Like others have stated.. with the minimal work involved to add 4G once 3G is working it makes no sense to release a 3G version. If xoomdev or any other smali masters want to assist us with this we'd be more than happy to have the help!

The other issue we face is that because merging all these commits takes so long by the time we make any progress, our release is already 2-3 revs behind. For example, our current work is being done on version 1.7.1 which is 2 releases behind the current. Once there is a stable MIUI release for the Desire HD it'll buy us some more time to stay current.
