Samsung Posts Android 4.3 Kernel Source for the Galaxy S 4
Ever since the Android 4.3 (XXUEMJ5) update was released for the Samsung Galaxy S 4, we knew it wouldn’t be long for the kernel source would follow. Now, one week later, Samsung has uploaded the GPL-mandated kernel source files for the XXUEMJ5 update for the GT-I9500 and GT-I9505 models.
Naturally, this means little to end users. But if you’re a GT-I9500/I9505 developer looking to build a custom Android 4.3-based ROM or kernel, this could make things substantially easier.
The kernel source files are available in Samsung’s Open Source Release Center. After you’re done grabbing them, head over to the Samsung Galaxy S 4 forum.
