HTC Releases Kernel Source and Framework Files for the HTC One M8

The HTC One M8 (2014) is a fantastic device, and one which manages to improve upon its critically acclaimed predecessor in practically every way. We recently talked about how XDA Senior Recognized Developer jcase and Recognized Developer beaups managed to root the device. But naturally, the real fun doesn’t begin until there are high-performance custom kernels for any given device. Now, HTC has taken the first steps towards letting the aftermarket developer community do what it does best.

Late last night, HTC posted the GPL-mandated kernel source code files for the HTC One M8 (2014). The source code and framework support files are available for 16 variants, including every US carrier currently selling the device as well as the Google Play edition.

If you’re a kernel developer looking to get started on the M8, today is your day. To get started, head over to HTCDev’s Developer Center and download the kernel source for the appropriate variant of the M8.

[Many thanks to Sunymoore for the tip!]
