EVO Shift 4G Kernel Sources Released by HTC

XDA moderator toastcfh comes bearing a nice little gift, courtesy of HTC. If you were happy about getting perm root on your HTC EVO Shift 4G, this will likely make a tear roll down your cheek. HTC just released the sources for the “speedy” kernel used in the aforementioned device. To the end user, this probably doesn’t mean much at this stage, but for kernel devs, this is the equivalent of someone having opened a candy store in front of a bunch of toddlers. Possibilities from this will include: fixes and improvements to the current kernel for the EVO Shift, ports for other devices, and much more. So, if you were hesitant about getting your hands on one of these because of the lack of development, now is your chance to get one and get the most out of it.

Have you done any work on this kernel already? We would love to hear your experiences with this so far, so please share your findings.

no bs let the fun begin link below

Best of Matias Duarte – “Ask Me Anything” Summary

Matias Duarte, VP of Design at Google, is perhaps one of the most prolific software designers of recent times: Material Design, the highest exponent of Android beauty, is Matias' own brainchild. Without him and his creation, the biggest Android update of all time wouldn't have been what it was and our favorite platform would still carry a look that many deemed outdated even before Material Design was shown.
