New crowdfunding effort to replace Mediatek cellular chip

A new crowdfunding project just started to replace the proprietary Mediatek (or Qualcomm) cellular chipsets in mobile phones with a complete Free and Open version. I think it is worth supporting. Could this potentially be integrated into the next Fairphone so it can run a Free OS such as Replicant?


Very interesting!
I own an Openmoko GTA02 and I followed OsmocomBB for some time, and this project seems very promising, although the Calypso chip is not 3G/4G so I don’t think this could be and endpoint for a smartphone…
However thank you for sharing with us :smile:
