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.

Google’s July 2018 Android platform update shows Oreo usage more than doubling since May

Monday, July 23rd, 2018

We get it, Google. You're busy with a lot of things, and platform distribution updates can fall by the wayside. Still, the most recent two-month gap was unusual. Someone finally had time to spit out new numbers today, and it's actually rather good news. Oreo usage is up to 12.2% across both versions, which is more than double where it was back in May.

This market share for Google's latest OS version isn't objectively good, but it's good for a new version of Android.

Friday, June 29th, 2018

The update (build H87220a) includes the Oreo system update as well as various unnamed bug fixes.
