    Hey guys I`m new to this forum but I have been a member inside the famous XDA-Developers site for over 1 year and I follow the development of the popular CyanogenMod daily. As you might know there have been some big problems for great Developers like Codeworkx of the CyanogenMod to bring a stable and a bugfree version of Jelly Bean to Exynos based devices because Samsung doesn`t release the Source Code and proper documentation for Exynos based devices.
    As most of you know our Galaxy SII I9100 is based on a Exynos 4210 processor.

    On XDA developers there is a campaign going on. Goal of the campaign is that Samsung releases the Source code and proper documentation for Exynos based Devices including our SII of course.

    How do we do this?
    The plan is to write a lot of messages to Samsung over the sozial media like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ etc.

    This thread will inform you people where to contact Samsung, so that we get their attention or as codeworkx said:

    So our goal is to get Samsung`s attention by writing as many concerns as possible of missing source code to Samsung. Of course it`s also important what you write, so it`s not just a big noob campaign asking for the Source Code. Codeworkx made a list of what is needed:

    You can find a done letter that you can copy and paste more down below.

    There are other signs that this might go somewhere, since this concern is reported now on several popular Android-blogs like Androidcentral and sites like XDA Developers, which will lead to even bigger popularity on this issue.
