  He needs it to test the hardware bringup and set-up of the Mali GPU
  with the mainline Lima kernel driver. 

  According to him, people have been reporting some difficulty on the
  Galaxy SIII, while things seem to be working ok with ODROID U3.

  Also, at least one core Lima developer has access to one ODROID U3,
  and used it to add support for the Exynos4412 SoC.

  If he or GrimKriegor who works with him stumble upon many unknowns in
  the Galaxy SIII they can use the ODROID for some testing.
* Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli: Agreed
* Joonas Kylmälä: Agreed
* Filippo Bergamo: Agreed

  We have now someone IRC who is working to understand if
  it's possible to run a fully free bootloader on the Galaxy SIII.

  Since she knows a lot of people that could help as well, including
  people that know how to find bootrom exploits, we have increased a
  lot the probability of having a fully free bootloader on the Galaxy
  SIII and other devices with the Exynos 4412.

  There is also an u-boot port for the Galaxy SIII and similar
  devices by Simon Shields, which currently depends on a nonfree and
  non-redistributable first stage. When he sent that code upstream,
  it broke booting on the Odroid U3[1], so the code was not merged.

  This would allow GNUtoo or other Replicant contributors[2] get the support
  for the Galaxy SIII and similar devices merged upstream.

   would be interested in doing that work.
