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!

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
