Samsung first posted open source kernel files for the Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Gear just before the weekend, only a couple of days after both devices became available internationally. There weren't many models available at the time, just two for the Note 3 and one for the Gear. Now Samsung has introduced eight more for the Galaxy Note 3, including the SM-N900, SM-N9005, SM-N900K, and many others.

These devices haven't launched in the US yet, but these files enable developers and open source enthusiasts living stateside to play around with things before anyone else, in a sense. But don't let that make you jealous - while these files don't do much of anything for the everyday consumer, they're essential for the developers and tinkerers who create the ROMs that many of you will inevitably flash. So lets think of their playing around with things as a commitment to the greater good.
