HTC Kernel Source Code for Android 4.4.3 on the M7 Developer Edition and Sprint HTC One M8

Just one week ago, the Sprint HTC One M8 received its official update to the recently released Android 4.4.3. Now, HTC has released the GPL-mandated kernel source code for this update, as well as for an upcoming Android 4.4.3 update to the HTC One M7 (Developer Edition).

The kernel source for the Sprint HTC One M8 corresponds to software revision 2.16.651.4_R2, while the kernel source for the M7 Developer Edition corresponds to its 6.07.1540.1 update. Both kernels come in at Linux version 3.4.0, and they are for their devices’ respective Android 4.4.3 updates. As always, these files are of no major consequence to traditional end users. However, aftermarket kernel and ROM developers looking to create or update source-built development projects will undoubtedly find them helpful.

If you’re a third-party ROM or kernel developer looking to work on the M7 developer edition or Sprint M8, head over to the HTCDev source links below to get in on the action. That said, given the source code update for the M7 developer edition, we wouldn’t be surprised to see the update start rolling out in the very near future.

Yesterday, we discussed the second part of our tech giants coming to the west series with Huawei. What people may not know, however, is that Huawei owns a company by the name of HiSilicon.
