Earlier this week, Samsung officially started the rollout of the Galaxy Note 3's update to Android 4.4.2 KitKat. Appearing first for those in Poland through KIES, the update matched what had been leaked shortly before the rollout began.

Just a few days later, Samsung has uploaded the official kernel source files to its Open Source Release Center.

Interestingly, the manufacturer told developer Chainfire just yesterday "we only publish open source code of official version," responding to a request for access to the files. This response was slightly odd considering the official rollout actually began Monday. Nonetheless, interested developers are now free to inspect and tinker with the fresh code after downloading it from the link below.
