Kernel source code for Moto E5 now available

Sunday, November 11th, 2018

Motorola has already released the kernel source code for most of the Moto E5 variants, including the E5 Plus and E5 Play Android Go Edition. However, the code for the plain E5 has not been available for developers to tinker with — until now.

Motorola just uploaded the Android 8.0 Oreo kernel source code for the regular Moto E5 (codename 'Nora') to GitHub. With this, developers can more easily create custom ROMs and recovery partitions for the phone.

Motorola releases Oreo kernel source code for the 2016 Moto Z Play

Thursday, August 2nd, 2018

Android 8.0 Oreo first arrived on the Brazil Moto Z Play in March of this year, then it started to roll out in the United States two months later. Motorola usually releases the kernel source code for each update around the time it is released, but for whatever reason, the Oreo code hasn't been available until now.

The company today published updated kernel sources for the original Moto Z Play, which has the codename of 'addison.' The updated code allows developers to more easily create custom ROMs and recoveries that are based on Android 8.0.

The HTC U12+ isn't a great phone, but if you bought one anyway, I have some good news for you. HTC just released the kernel source code for the U12+, allowing developers to more easily create custom recoveries and ROMs for the company's latest flagship.

Motorola releases kernel source code for Moto G6 Play

Sunday, April 29th, 2018

Even though Motorola usually doesn't push software updates in a timely manner, it doesn't take long for the company to release the accompanying kernel source code. The Moto G6 and E5 family was officially announced earlier this month, and even though the phones aren't widely available yet, Motorola has released the kernel source for one model - the G6 Play.

The kernel source code for the G6 Play has been uploaded to GitHub, under the device names "aljeter" and "jeter." If you're not familiar with this process, the code allows developers to create custom ROMs and recoveries more easily.

HMD Global finally releases Nokia 8 kernel source code

Saturday, April 21st, 2018

Despite doing a pretty good job on keeping its phones up to date, HMD Global has until recently had a bit of trouble with releasing the kernel sources for its devices. But in a "finally" moment, the exclusive manufacturer of the Nokia brand has released the Nokia 8 source codes to the developer community.

Having this code allows developers to start tinkering with custom software for the device(s) in question. These kernel sources for the Nokia 8, which was very well-received by our very own (awesome) Rita, have often been requested by the dev community since the phone launched.

Xiaomi releases the kernel source code for the Mi A1

Tuesday, January 30th, 2018

Earlier in January, the online chatter about Xiaomi's delay/unwillingness to release kernel source codes for its Mi A1 phone reached a peak. Given how popular this little gem of a phone has become (read my take or Corbin's review) and all that it could do for a measly $220 price tag, as well as the fact that it runs Android One, Google's own official software for third-parties, it was quite unbecoming of Xiaomi to not release the source or take such a long time to do so.

Motorola releases Oreo kernel source code for Moto X4

Sunday, January 21st, 2018

Those of you familiar with the GPL will know that manufacturers are required to post any modifications they make to the Android kernel. Motorola does this with all of their phones, including the Nougat-powered Moto X4, but now that Oreo is out for the phone (well, at least the Android One version), the source code for that needs to be posted as well. Lo and behold, it has.

A developer requested the kernel source code for the X4 (codenamed 'payton') about two weeks ago in Motorola's GitHub, and it's finally been granted.

Motorola releases Oreo kernel source code for the Z2 Force

Wednesday, January 10th, 2018

It only took about a month for Motorola to release the Moto Z2 Force's kernel source code after it launched in August. As you may know, OEMs are required to publish their modifications to the Android kernel code, which is then used by developers to make custom ROMs and recoveries.

The Z2 Force originally shipped with Android 7.1.1, but some models have since received an update to 8.0 Oreo. Motorola has now released the updated Oreo kernel source, after a few developers asked the company to publish it.
