    Maybe if enough people comment on it, we can get Samsung to release source code for the RIL on the Stratosphere and Charge.

    You can also go to http://opensource.samsung.com and search for SCH-I405_VZW
    Then click on the envelope on the side and request more stuff.

    Samsung has given a very definitive answer to this already, and it is NO!!!

    Someone on XDA filled out the section on the left of Samsung's Open Source website requesting RIL source, here is what they asked:

    Samsung's response was very to the point:

    Why does Samsung still care about this radio? Don't all SoCs support LTE now no longer requiring a separate LTE radio?

    Apparently they think keeping their code proprietary gives them some sort of competitive edge against their rivals. It's pure crap, too, it's not like Motorola or HTC going to use their code to make their phones more competitive, they have their own code base which works fine for them. Essentially, it's Samsung being bitches because they feel like it for no good reason.
