Moto G5S Plus kernel source code for Android 8.1 Oreo is out

Wednesday, August 1st, 2018

All manufacturers are required by the GPL to release the kernel source code whenever there's a change to it, which usually happens when a major update is pushed. The Moto G5S Plus, codenamed 'sanders,' has been waiting for its Oreo update for quite a while now, but with news of a soak test occurring in Brazil and this source code's release, it looks like it may be coming soon.

The Moto G5S Plus is the Moto G5 Plus's successor, offering a dual rear camera setup, metal body, and a 5.5" 1080p display.

HMD publishes Nokia 5.1 kernel source code

Monday, July 23rd, 2018

HMD Global may still be refusing to unlock bootloaders, but it's required to release each phone's source code by the GPL. The company has just published the kernel source for the Nokia 5.1, which was announced a little under two months ago.

For those unfamiliar with source code, it allows developers to build custom software like ROMs and custom recoveries more easily. However, because Nokia is refusing to allow its bootloaders to be unlocked, there's really not much that can be done.

Motorola releases 8.1 Oreo kernel source code for Moto X4

Friday, July 6th, 2018

The Moto X4 started receiving Android 8.1 Oreo back in May, and it brought with it a couple of issues. Two months later, Motorola has released the kernel source for that update as it's mandated to do by the GPL whenever there are any modifications to the Android kernel.

What this means is that developers will now have a much easier time making custom ROMs and recoveries for the Moto X4 on Android 8.1 Oreo.

Motorola Moto G6 and G6 Plus kernel source code released

Saturday, June 16th, 2018

With the Moto G6 and G6 Plus slowly becoming more and more widely available, Motorola has published the kernel source code for the Moto G6 and G6 Plus. The G6 Play's source code was released in late April, but it's taken over a month on top of that for the G6 and G6 Plus's for whatever reason.

The Moto G6 goes by codename "Ali," and the G6 Plus by "Evert." The kernel source codes for these two devices will help developers create custom ROMs and recoveries, which enthusiast owners will no doubt want.

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 Moto Z2 Play Oreo kernel source code

Thursday, April 26th, 2018

Lenovo-owned Motorola has definitely passed its glory years, but the company is still pretty good about releasing the kernel sources for the new updates on its phones. The Moto Z2 Play (albus) is up next, with Lenovorola pushing the device's Oreo kernel sources to GitHub.

Having these available will allow developers to make custom ROMs and the like with far greater ease than without them. So if you're developing for the Z2 Play, or thinking about it, Motorola has made your life easier.

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 promises to change its ways and release kernel source code within 3 months of device launches

Thursday, April 12th, 2018

Chinese OEM Xiaomi has a poor reputation when it comes to OS updates and the timely release of kernel source code. It took a Twitter backlash and criticism from several tech blogs to get the company to finally release the Nougat source code for the Android One-toting Mi A1. A similarly lengthy wait had to be endured before the Oreo code was be provided last month. Xiaomi has now stated its intention (again) to release kernel source code within three months of a device's launch.
