XDA Users Petition Samsung to Share More with Developers

After shipping 300 million handsets in 2011, Samsung is arguably the biggest and most important handset manufacturer at present. HTC seeks to challenge this with devices in its new One series, and Samsung is still seen by many to fall behind HTC when it comes to third party development.

While we at XDA don’t tend to cover petitions on the portal, it was felt that this one could potentially result in some major benefits for device users if it gains more traction. The petition came about as a result of XDA Recognized Developer, and CyanogenMod Device Maintainer, Codeworkx, and his detailed post detailing what is holding back traction of custom ROMs on the Samsung Galaxy S2.

It is hoped that this petition will gather enough weight that it can be presented to Samsung Mobile, in the hope of greater future cooperation with third party developers on all their devices. To read more about the petition, and sign it for yourself, click here.
