Kernel Source Master List for the International Galaxy Note

Whenever a new kernel is released, it is subject to the GPL. This means that full kernel source code for all publicly released kernels and firmware based on the Linux kernel must be made publicly available. This is usually no big deal, as most OEMs and kernel developers provide the legally required GPL-compliant kernel source shortly after releasing a new update or device. However, the difficulty is often in finding all source code links that you would need conveniently. While going into the kernel thread and grabbing link is fine, having a centralized space for this would help many looking for a base upon which to add commits.

This is now available on the Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000 thanks to XDA Recognized Contributor chasmodo, who has put the links to all of the kernel sources in one place. The thread is split up into two pieces, one for the Samsung Touchwiz kernels and one for AOSP kernels. Inside the thread, users will find two links for each kernel. The first takes users to the original thread so they can grab up the source links, and the other is a download link for those kernels.

So, if you’re looking for a kernel or kernel source on the N7000, this is likely a thread you’ll want to keep bookmarked, as it stands as a central hub of sorts to help users get the kernels or source code they want. For additional information, check out the kernel repository thread.

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
