HTC Release Kernel Source for AT&T One X
The kernel source for the Tegra 3-based International HTC One X was released over two months ago. However, its Snapdragon S4-based sister device, the AT&T One X has left users eagerly awaiting the kernel source release for their device. Well, the wait is finally over!
XDA Forum Member shashank_virgo let us know that HTC have released version 1.73 of the kernel source. While this is a relatively old version that has since been updated numerous times, it’s still a great starting point for the developers to sink their teeth into, and start producing some long awaited custom kernels for the device.
In fact, one dev has already been busy, releasing the first custom kernel for the AT&T variant. XDA Recognized Developer sbryan12144 has compiled the source with his first tweaks, which enable overclocking of the device up to 1.8 GHz. Now, overclocking the AT&T One X to 1.8 GHz is nothing new. However, this does mark the arrival of the first custom kernel for the device.This is only the start, and he promises there are more features to come.
We can no doubt also expect to see a number of other developers come up with their own customs kernels in the near future. Keep an eye on the AT&T One X Development Forum for more kernel activity.
