Swing and Miss: Motorola RAZR i Kernel Source Almost Here

The newly announced Motorola RAZR i is what many people looking for change have been waiting for. Well, maybe not looking for change, but rather looking forward to Intel’s entrance into the mobile handset market. Talk began regarding the Medfield platform, which is essentially an Intel Atom CPU and a PowerVR SGX 540 GPU, which actually brings devices one step closer to being full laptop replacements. For those who guessed that Google would be the first to take them for a spin, you were correct.

Shortly after being released, we noticed a thread started by XDA Forum Member pOOBAH1973 where it stated that the kernel sources for this device were already available from Moto/Google. The nano second that piece of information became available, Motorola devs jumped in head first to try and download this source. However, according to XDA Forum Member mattlgroff, the links, while valid through MD5 validation, seem to be yielding a corrupted download. Every mirror available has been tried by him as well as other devs, just to arrive at the same result.

The issue was already reported. However, if anyone from Motorola or Google happens to read this, please note that the sources being provided are corrupted. Thank you for the attention on this matter. We definitely look forward to seeing the complete sources and what our devs can do with them. Please leave some information if you happen to download the correct file from anywhere else, and share it in the thread linked below.

Source is finished… but the kernel source is corrupted upon download.

You can find more information in the original thread.

Best of Matias Duarte – “Ask Me Anything” Summary

Matias Duarte, VP of Design at Google, is perhaps one of the most prolific software designers of recent times: Material Design, the highest exponent of Android beauty, is Matias' own brainchild. Without him and his creation, the biggest Android update of all time wouldn't have been what it was and our favorite platform would still carry a look that many deemed outdated even before Material Design was shown. With an internet following that spawned several internet memes and even a weird community,...
