Replicant status

While that device is Very similar to the Galaxy Note II (GT-N7100), some peripherals are wired differently on the two boards, and the two boards have different cellular modems.

Replicant 6.0

To get partially supported by Replicant 6.0 we can either:
  • validate that the device boots with the GT-N7100 images. The downside is that the images would have support for libsamsung-ipc that could probably be disabled after boot, but it would make the installation instructions more complicated than they should be.
  • Building images for it without libsamsung-ipc. That would be better. Ideally we could also look if the ofono ril has some support for its modem and the one for the Galaxy SIII 4G (I9305).

For Replicant 9

As it uses the same dts as the GT-N7100, it might just be possible to make an image without modem support for it, however the GT-N7100 also need to be added in Replicant 9, which requires to port (and upstream!) some display drivers.
