Saturday, October 13th, 2018

Motorola has been churning through its backlog of GPL obligations lately. The company released kernel sources for the Moto E5 Play Android Go Edition a few days ago, followed by updated source code for the Moto G5. Now the kernel package for the E5 Plus is out on GitHub.

If you're not familiar with this process, the kernel source package allows developers to more easily create custom ROMs and recoveries for a certain device.

Friday, October 12th, 2018

The non-Plus model of the Moto G5 was never released in the US, but for those of you overseas who have one, here's some good news for you. The Android 8.1 Oreo-based kernel source code for the Moto G5, codenamed 'cedric,' has now been published on GitHub, meaning that developers can start cooking.

This news comes after the G5 Plus's source code being released late last month. Now that the G5's code is out as well, developers can build custom ROMs, kernels, and other software for the G5 on 8.1 Oreo.

Motorola releases kernel source for E5 Play Android Go edition

Thursday, October 11th, 2018

Earlier this year, Motorola released a special Android Go version of its lowest-end phone, the Moto E5 Play. It uses Google's Android Go platform, and is only available in a handful of European and Latin American countries. The phone might start to receive custom ROMs though, now that Motorola has released the kernel source code.

For those unfamiliar, the kernel source code allows developers to more easily create custom ROMs and recoveries for a certain phone.

LG V40’s kernel source code is already available

Saturday, October 6th, 2018

It's not unusual for kernel source codes to be published before phones/updates even debut, but just two days after LG took the wraps off of the V40, the kernel source code for various models has already been published.

Five variants of the V40 (LMV405) are listed on LG's OpenSource Code Distribution site: TA, TAB, TM, TMB, and TS. The file names remind us that this brand-new $1,000 flagship ships with Oreo, which is a shame.

Motorola releases G5 Plus kernel source code for Android 8.1 Oreo

Friday, September 28th, 2018

You hear us talk a lot about manufacturers releasing the kernel source codes for their devices. Some resist hard, while others just take some time. In the case of the latter, Motorola released the Android 8.1 Oreo sources for the Moto G5 Plus over on its Github.

Though succeeded by the G5S Plus – which had it's 8.1 Oreo kernel sources released a few months ago – the Moto G5 Plus (codename Potter) is still a good budget phone.

Kernel source code for the Nokia 6.1 is now available

Wednesday, September 26th, 2018

The Nokia 6.1 is HMD Global's sequel to last year's immensely popular Nokia 6. It's a great phone, as we covered in our review, and now its kernel source code is publicly available for developers to tinker with.

Unfortunately, the kernel source release is little more than HMD following the legal requirements of various open-source licenses, since all Nokia Android phones are bootloader-locked. Since custom ROMs and recoveries are out of the question with locked devices, there's not much developers can actually do with the source code package right now.

Samsung releases kernel source code for the Galaxy Note9 (Exynos variant)

Monday, August 27th, 2018

Developers, get your fingers and keyboards ready, it's about to get busy in here. You can now download the kernel source for the hottest Android smartphone of the past months, the Galaxy Note9.

Kernel sources are crucial for the modding community: they're important for creating stable custom ROMs and making reliable mods. But not all variants of Samsung's devices are created equal when it comes to mod-friendliness, and the Note9 doesn't change things.

Motorola releases Oreo kernel source code for Moto G6 Play and E5 Play

Thursday, August 23rd, 2018

Back in April, Motorola introduced six - yes, six - smartphones simultaneously. Three belonged to the Moto G6 line, and the other three were in the Moto E5 family. The company has now published the Oreo source codes for the Moto G6 Play and E5 Play.

While six phones were announced at that same time, only three arrived in the US. The two Play phones mentioned here are among those. Here are the links you'll need:

One of the GitHub E5 Play entries specifies "james-a," not just "james." We were unable to find any mention of "james-a" anywhere else on the web, though it is possible this is dev-speak for a specific E5 Play model.

HMD publishes Nokia 2.1 kernel source code

Tuesday, August 21st, 2018

The Nokia 2.1 was announced back in late May, and it's HMD's new budget offering. With pricing starting at around $115 for an Android Go phone with a 4.000mAh battery, it sounds like a decent deal. HMD has just released the source code for the 2.1, nearly a month after it did so for the 5.1.

HMD is required to release the source code by the GPL. That would ordinarily help with custom ROM and recovery development, but since Nokia refuses to allow its bootloaders to be unlocked, this doesn't really do much good.

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.
