Epic Touch 4G Sources Released – Good Move, Samsung!
Well, we truly gotta give it to Samsung this time as they seem to be making a turn for the better and trying to get close to developers at the same time. XDA member Korey_Nicholson just informed us that apparently the Epic 4G Touch did not get released by itself. It looks like the kernel sources (D710) are also available for download in the Samsung website. So, for all of you who were impatiently waiting to start developing custom work on this brand new device, now is your chance. Also, this goes to show all the skeptics in the crowd that even large sized companies can have their good days as well.
In any case, you will be able to download, tweak, compile, rinse, and repeat to your heart’s content. So, what are you waiting for? Go for it and if you happen to create something good, make sure that you share it with the rest of the community.
Scroll down to find D710 and have fun building those kernels!
