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.

Galaxy S6 Shipping with Different Camera Models

One of the Galaxy S6's most flaunted features is its spectacular camera, its 16MP with an f/1.9 aperture performing excellently in well-lit shots as well as low-light ones, with most reviews concluding that it trounces the camera on the iPhone 6 as well. However, all may not be right in Monde de la Samsung, as earlier today, XDA Member Bananaz came across a surprising detail about the shooter on the S6, and while the revelation is not necessary groundbreaking, it...

No, Android Apps on Windows Mobile Isn’t a Good Thing

As Symbian and Blackberry OS gradually gave way to Android and iOS towards the turn of the decade, the former leviathans found themselves struggling to hold their ground and when all seemed lost, they were forced to resort to extreme measures. While Nokia gave in to an acquisition by Microsoft, RIM's plans were more out-of-the-box and one of their efforts to save the platform whose existence was nigh on end was to build a runtime that allowed Blackberry devices to run apps built...
