GPL-Mandated Moto E Kernel Source Finally Released, Razr M/HD Source Updated to KitKat

We’ve talked quite a bit about the highly affordable Moto E ever since its launch earlier this month. We first shared a system dump a little under two weeks ago, and that was quickly followed by a preliminary TWRP build. Then two days after that, Motorola graciously allowed us to bootloader unlock the device.

Despite all of this early progress, one thing had been missing up until now, and that’s functional kernel source. Now, however, Motorola has finally complied with the GPL-requirements and released the open source kernel code for the Moto E.

Ordinarily, we wouldn’t be celebrating an OEM for taking a half month in releasing something that should have been available at device launch. But as you would expect, this is still a great thing for developers, who now no longer have to rely on code from other devices to create development work on the E. In addition to the kernel source release for the Moto E, Motorola has also updated its Razr M and Razr HD to match its KitKat updates that we saw not too long ago–again, better late than never.

Developers, it’s time to get those engines started. Head over to the source links below to get in on the source-built development action.

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
