Default Amlogic M3 (ICS) and MX (JB) overview and what to expect

Hi folks,

long time no word from me and I'm sorry about that.

I already few times explained why I don't support anymore Visson products etc, so I'm not going to do it again

Here's few words on current Amlogic souces and what can be expected from hardware manufacturers...

M3 platform... They released new ICS source branch at the end of January this year. 4.0.4 version of Android, kernel version is 2.6.34. Not much to say about it, mostly bugfixes, kernel optimizations, few new drivers...

MX platform... MX started with 2.6.34 kernel and ICS, they moved on to 3.0.8 kernel and JellyBean 4.1.1 and 4.1.2. These releases of JB were pretty buggy and unstable. In late November last year I got info that they will not do they best to get 4.1.2 stable. Instead of that they put their resources to porting 4.2.1 JB to MX platform. First useable sources for MBX (Android TV boxes) were released in January. Still buggy, needs more time to get all things working, but so far it's good.

Current status of MX JellyBean (20130131): Android version: 4.2.1, Kernel version: 3.0.50. Stability: Needs more bugfixing and testing but so far so good

Also, Amlogic does not have intention to prepare JB for M3 platform and certainly does not support it. Porting JB to M3 is pain in the a** actually... My M3 product runs on JB 4.1.2, but not Amlogic sources.... AOSP 4.1.2_r1 as base + drivers and proprietaries from Amlogic. That works pretty good

If you find my work useful, buy me a beer
