Liberating MediaTek bootloaders and modem firmware

On the right you can see photos of a Coolpad Modena 2, which was built around MediaTek’s MT6735P SoC (System on a chip). In case you are wondering why we’re not showing a picture with postmarketOS running on it: we can’t! This is because the vendor decided to ship it with a closed down bootloader, which prevents users from running custom kernels.

The postmarketOS team details how they are cracking open the bootloader and the cellular modem firmware on MediaTek-based devices.
