Sources For Samsung Galaxy S2 Hercules (T-Mobile) Released!

With the release of the latest addition to the Galaxy S2 family, Samsung is yet once again proving that they are trying their hardest to commit their involvement in the development community. With the previous two installments (for AT&T and Sprint), we saw that the Korean manufacturer dropped the sources for both kernel and platform almost immediately after release (and in the case of the Epic 4G Touch, it was on the same day). It seems that people getting the Hercules (SGS2 version for T-Mobile USA) also got the special treatment that Vibrant owners could only dream of back in the SGS days. XDA member bubby323 points us to the fact that the sources surfaced on Samsung’s site in all of their downloadable glory. So, if you were waiting to see if any development would be done on this behemoth, I think it may be fair to say that it will happen. At the very least, the needed tools to do anything at all are out there.

If you want to get your hands dirty or simply want to monitor what others do, please step into the Hercules area to find out more.

The kernel and platform source have both just dropped on Samsung’s website.

You can find more information in the original thread.

Kirin: A Processor the Western World Should Look Out For

Yesterday, we discussed the second part of our tech giants coming to the west series with Huawei. What people may not know, however, is that Huawei owns a company by the name of HiSilicon. Hisilicon's processor department may not be the most popular in the west but their technology is impressive, with year on year improvements being easily seen. In the coming years, manufacturers such as Qualcomm may have to face the fact that there are other companies just as able...
