As Qualcomm are keeping even the most basic hardware information secret from
the development community.
For the developer community this is both a challenge and a pain in the arse.
We get bricks from left and right, but we have absolutely no useful or freely
accessible documentation for how to determine the internal HW settings that
can be useful to revive our phones and tablets.
As the QC empire only speaks in terms of $$$, we have to expect that there
will never be any publicly available documentation on this (or any future)
top-model chip-sets from Qualcomm. Security by obscurity is their motto,
because that is what their sales numbers and marketing officers are telling
them is right.
