Custom ROMs are fun. More than that, they offer ways to significantly extend the software life of phones. Manufacturer decides it no longer wants to support hardware? Hopefully someone out there will take up the mantle. But to do that, they need the kernel source code for a given device.
OnePlus has already made those files available for the OnePlus 3. Developers and tinkerers can snag the goods from Github.
This could be more useful than you might think, for you and OnePlus alike. The company has already relied on community builds to bring updates to users. These files are what the community needs to get to work.
Now that that's out of the way, how many of you managed to snap a OnePlus 3 after yesterday's launch?
