Android 4.4.2 Source Code Released for T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3, NB4 OTA Imminent

Official builds of Android 4.4.2 have been making their way to various iterations of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 over the past month. Now, it seems as if the  is next on the list, as the GPL-mandated kernel source code has been posted to Samsung’s Open Source Release Center.

News of the source code release comes courtesy of XDA Forum Member toastido, who first noticed the addition on Samsung’s Open Source Release Center earlier today. This source release corresponds to the yet-to-be-released N900TUVUCNB4 update for the device. And while we don’t know much about this particular update other than its build number and Android version, it’s safe to assume that the T-Mobile variant will get to enjoy all of the same goodies seen in other iterations of the device.

Now obviously the GPL-mandated source code release means absolutely nothing for end-users. However, given that kernel source is usually released within a few days of OTAs, we think it’s safe to assume that T-Mobile Note 3 users are in for some tasty 4.4.2 goodness in the coming days.

If you’re a developer looking to start working with the KitKat source code for the device, head over to Samsung’s Open Source Release Center for the T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3 (N900T). And while you’re at it, don’t forget to head over to XDA Forum Member lcm151‘s Android 4.4.2 update discussion thread.
