HMD releases Nokia 3 kernel source code

Wednesday, May 16th, 2018

HMD Global has released the source code for the Nokia 3. The 3 has become the fourth phone in Nokia's lineup to have its kernel source released, following the 1 and 6, as well as the rather late 8, last month.

The source code allows developers to much more easily build custom software, and it's definitely nice to see. With that being said, HMD still hasn't unlocked any of the Nokia devices' bootloaders, making the source code a lot less useful than it should be.

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.

Razer already has kernel source and factory images available for the Razer Phone Oreo update

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

The Razer Phone is one of the few devices that caters to developers and enthusiasts with an unlockable bootloader, factory images, and so on. It was stuck on Nougat until recently, though. Razer just started pushing the Oreo 8.1 update, but you don't have to wait on the OTA. There are already factory images available for download, and the kernel source is out.

The Android 8.1 image clocks in at 1.6GB, and you'll need ADB on your computer to install it.

Motorola releases Android 8.0 Oreo kernel source code for 2016 Moto Z

Sunday, March 25th, 2018

Motorola hasn't been doing well lately. Several planned phones have seemingly been delayed or cancelled, and half of the company's engineering team in Chicago was laid off earlier this month. While Oreo has yet to be released for the company's 2016 flagship (at least beyond carrier testing), developers can now download the updated kernel source code.

If you're not familiar with how this works, the Linux kernel that Android uses falls under the GPL license.

Xiaomi releases Oreo kernel source code for the Mi A1

Saturday, March 17th, 2018

Xiaomi promised that the Mi A1 would receive Oreo by the end of 2017, and the company hit a buzzer-beater by rolling out Android 8.0 to the Android One device on December 30th. But the kernel source code was nowhere to be found, a violation of the GNU General Public License, version 2 (GPLv2), and an affront to the development and enthusiast community. It's about two-and-a-half months late, but Xiaomi has finally released the Android 8.0 Oreo source code for the Mi A1.

Samsung publishes kernel source code for Galaxy S9/S9+ Snapdragon and Exynos models

Thursday, March 15th, 2018

Just as it did after the unveiling of the Galaxy S8/S8+, Samsung has published the kernel sources for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. But this time around, the company has gone ahead and released the code for the Exynos and Snapdragon models at the same time.

Of course, these won't be of much use to the everyday consumer. To a developer, though, this means that custom development can commence.

Android 7.1.1 kernel source now available for Moto G4 Play

Saturday, March 3rd, 2018

Motorola's flagship devices still get updates relatively quickly, but its budget phones lag behind quite a bit. For example, the Verizon Moto G4 Play was just updated from Android 6.0 to 7.1.1 earlier this month, shortly after the international variants received it. Now Motorola has released the kernel source code for the G4 Play's Nougat update.

The kernel source for 'Harpia' (the G4 Play's codename) was published earlier today on GitHub.

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.
