Kernel Source Available for the Moto X

Just 14 days ago, we announced that we had given the Moto X a home here on our forums. While the device may not exactly pack the highest specced internals, it offers several software perks enabled by its low power ancillary cores. Now, we are a happy to report that GPL-compliant kernel source has finally been released for the device.

Source is currently available for the T-Mobile (XT1053), AT&T (XT1058), and Sprint (XT1056) models. Curiously, the Sprint model was included, despite not yet being available for purchase. This is in contrast to the Verizon model, for which source code is not available despite its imminent launch.

This is the first important step towards aftermarket development on the Moto X, and we can’t way to see the custom kernels that will come from this. Head over to the Moto X Sourceforge page to get the sauce, and head over to the Moto X forums to share in the development work that will inevitably follow.

A tweet and vine from OnePlus shed some more light on this product, which was confirmed to be named as DR-1 (dr-one, get it?) and was to reach stores "next month". In a...

Xiaomi Finally Releases Kernel Sources

If you are familiar with Xiaomi, you might have heard that they are not the most compliant when it comes to the General Public License that makes the core of Android open to us. The terms of the GPLv2 state that since the Android kernel is based on the Linux kernel, which is licensed under GPL,v2 Android has to be open-source for everyone to study or modify, and those that modify the Android kernel have to make their sources immediately available for...
