Telus Amaze 4G ICS Kernel Source Released, No TI WLAN Present
Previously, we brought you news that HTC Amaze 4G owners wanted their TI WLAN source code and had started a petition for it using emails and social media to get HTC to release it. HTC hasn’t yet released the TI WLAN source code, but they have released the ICS kernel source for the Telus Amaze 4G. This is still fantastic news for HTC Amaze 4G owners, as development—which was on hold for so long due to not having source—can now finally get underway.
Now that source is released, the developers who commonly work with it have come together to tear it down and figure out what’s there and what isn’t. XDA Recognized Developers hasoon2000 and sportsstar89, along with XDA Senior Member oryan_dunn and a few others, have taken a good look at the source code and have concluded a decent number of things and have identified some issues.
Of course, the biggest issue is that the source code they’ve been petitioning for wasn’t actually released. The aforementioned developers have determined that not only were the TI WLAN drivers not included, but what little source code related to it was included was commented out. This has flustered the developers, but they are already working on ways to get around not having the source they requested.

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...
