It's always been intended to release a camera module and a LCD panel module.
I pray that these modules, at least, will be easy to clone and hack with.
I mean, sure I would buy an LCD panel from the foundation, but also I would like to be able to setup my own. If I'd have the display and its specs, I'd only need the proper way to configure the GPU for it (perhaps a handy /etc/dsi.cnf file would be awesome ).
We are currently not sure. A conf file approach would seem to be best, but that requires some input from Broadcom people (Dom, me or someone). Note that the connectors to these displays are often different, so you would need some sort of PCB to convert to the correct cable format as well. It's not just a software problem.
