We still need to determine if the NovaThor U8500 has a signed or unsigned bootloader and whether it has good modem isolation. This post suggested that it doesn't have good modem isolation: https://redmine.replicant.us/boards/27/topics/39?r=10155#message-10155

Has a Mali-400 GPU

  • Target version changed from Replicant 11.0 0001 to Replicant 11.0

I create a new "Replicant 11" version as it is unlikely to add it in the very first release.
