Well, some might remember my time with a cheap and nasty Android tablet (some might call these “landfill Android”).  The device packaging did not once even acknowledge the fact that there was GPL’ed software onboard, let alone how one obtains the source.

I discovered it was based around the Vimicro VC0882 SoC.  Turns out, that’s the same as the ViewSonic ViewPad 10e, who do release their kernel sources on their knowledge base.

Thank-you ViewSonic, you have just helped me greatly!  Maybe I should track down one of your tablets and buy one in appreciation.
