It's that time again: the software engineers at Samsung are on an open-source bender, and they won't stop until every last Galaxy phone has been served. Today Samsung posted kernel files for some big (as in widely-used) devices, and some not-so-big (but still actually pretty big) devices. Verizon's version of the Galaxy S4, the vanilla Galaxy Tab 3 7.0, the Galaxy Mega 5.8 Duos, and the GSM version of the Galaxy Mega 6.3 all have kernel source code posted at Samsung's open source repository.

We've seen the kernels for various versions of the Galaxy S4 before, as well as the LTE version of the slightly more enormous Galaxy Mega 6.3. The rest of these are brand new, and among them, the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 is probably the most important. Thanks to its rock-bottom pricing structure and wide availability, it's likely to make its way into more than a few hands this summer. The Galaxy Mega 5.8 Duos is a dual-SIM model intended for remote markets and travelers, like the rest of that sub-family.

The source code files are available at the links below. Developers, help yourselves.
