Galaxy S III SGH-i747 and SGH-T999 Source Code Released

The Samsung Galaxy S3 is one of the most powerful phones on the market. Although the AT&T and T-Mobile variants do not sport the 1.4 GHz quad-core Exynos 4412 processor found in the international version, they feature an incredibly fast, dual-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor. The Snapdragon S4 features Qualcomm Krait CPU and the Adreno 225 GPU.

The fast hardware practically begs for equally optimized ROMs and kernels. Now thanks to Samsung’s software engineers, the device’s power can be harnessed thanks to the release of GPL-compliant kernel source code for the AT&T SGH-i747 and T-Mobile SGH-T999. The best part is that this is before the devices even officially go on sale. This is great news for kernel developers, looking to get started with development a bit early.

What are you waiting for? Head over to Samsung’s Open Source Release Center and download the SGH-i747 and SGH-T999 kernel source code!

Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors.
