HTC Releases Kernel Source for the One X
Not too long ago, we announced the release of the HTC One line and the subsequent creation of a home for these devices within our forum. Then when the device hit store shelves, it was immediately met by a substantial following. Needless to say, the One X is a pretty big deal.
XDA Senior Member MarcoHD now lets us know that HTC has released the version 1.26 and 1.28 kernel source code for the HTC One X. Although the HTCDev website seems to be in and out of service due to the high demand, XDA Forum Member Fightspit has posted a mirror in the thread. Kernel developers now have a base upon which to add their tweaks, and many such as Recognized Developer LorD ClockaN have already begun the process.
Kernel developers, it’s time to get cracking! Those looking to get in on the discussion can share their thoughts in the original thread and download the source code from the HTCDev Downloads Section.
