Luckily, the list includes a broad range of phones and tablets, and it just keeps growing. Since our last roundup, TWRP came to devices including the Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra, Moto G6, and Nokia 6.1.

Samsung releases Oreo kernel source code for the Galaxy S8/S8+

Friday, February 9th, 2018

It includes any modifications they've made and its what tinkerers then use to build custom ROMs other mods. Some OEMs are quick to release the code after an update, whereas some drag their heels. In this instance, Samsung has been impeccably fast.

After a thorough beta program, Samsung finally started rolling out Anrdoid 8.0 Oreo to the Galaxy S8 and S8+ yesterday.
