Transparency and openness are at the core of our ambitions to bring more fairness into our products – and also into the software on our products. Following this ambition, we’re excited to announce that we are publishing the source code of Fairphone 3 Android 11.
You can find instructions to download the source tree and to build your own Fairphone 3 software on code.fairphone.com. If you are interested, you can also send patches and contributions to our Gerrit instance at https://gerrit-public.fairphone.software. The source tree contains all Android and Linux kernel sources that we can publish, which excludes some proprietary components that are required for the phone to work. For those we publish a binary blobs package instead. The public source tree also does not contain proprietary third-party apps such as the Google Mobile Services.
For the (former) Fairphone 2 users out there: Our Fairphone 3 source release has a very similar scope as the Fairphone Open source code for FP2. However, currently we are NOT planning to release Fairphone Open for Fairphone 3.
Let us know if you have any questions or feedback!
