People working or wanting to work on Replicant

Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli

Nickname: GNUtoo
Email address:
GPG key: FB31 DBA3 AB8D B76A 4157 329F 7651 568F 8037 4459
Role: Replicant developer, member of the Replicant steering committee.
Location: Paris
Events/Conferences he typically attends to: local events and conferences in Paris

Current work:
  • Reviewing patches when they land on the mailing list.
  • Replicant 6.0 releases
  • Porting Replicant to Android 11.0
  • Porting libsamsung-ipc and libsamsung-ril to Android 11 and upstream kernels
  • Maintening libsamsung-ipc
  • Project documentation and installation instructions
  • Making Replicant more easy to both users and contributors
  • Maintaining the Replicant infrastructure
  • Community management
Looking for help:
  • I need help on the migration guides mentioned in the ReplicantReleaseNotes. When that work is done we could announce the Replicant 6.0 0004 release.
  • I need help for all the subsequent Replicant 6 releases if any.
  • I need people to help review the patches I send on the Replicant mailing list
Offers for collaboration:
  • If you find some information on how to change IMEI, I can implement IMEI changing in nv_data-imei.c
  • If you find information on how to remove network locks I would also be interested in writing a tool, because we don't support the official way to do it and sometimes for some reasons it rolls back to being network locked.
Previous work:
  • Many small contributions for many devices and areas of Replicant
  • Some uncompleted kernel work for Goldelico GTA04 port
  • Replicant founder, worked on devices with Qualcomm System on a Chip (SOCs) long time ago

Devices and testing hardware: list (As I also work on other free software projects like Parabola, I moved the list there).

  • Simtrace 1 and 2 to sniff the communication between the modem and the SIM card.
  • I've the UART on all Samsung devices supported by Replicant and on the GTA04. The setup is faster on some devices.
  • I've also tools to recover from the installation of bad bootloaders
  • Good at C
  • Weak in C++, Java
  • Has some good idea on how the hardware and modem works
  • Has less good idea on how the graphics part works
