Samsung Releases KitKat Kernel Source For Sprint Galaxy S4

While no US carrier-branded variants of the Galaxy S4 have received an official update to Android 4.4/KitKat yet, Samsung has dropped the KitKat kernel source for the Sprint's model. While that by itself is really only of interest to developers, its implications will matter to a much larger audience. Generally, Samsung does not release kernel source for builds that aren't official. Historically, once source code is made available, official OTA updates follow in reasonably short order.

The new firmware build number is L720VPUFNAE. Currently, there is no official word from either Samsung or Sprint on when the accompanying OTA update will roll out, but if building kernels and hacking are your thing, go have fun.

Motorola Releases Open Source Kernel Files For The Moto G

There's a new Android phone available, so you know what that means: open source junkies get to take a look under the hood thanks to publicly-available kernel files. Motorola's post for the Moto G comes a few weeks after it officially went on sale,which is pretty typical. You can download the kernel source code for the Moto X over at SourceForge.

There's only one Moto G model at the moment in a GSM flavor (though new models should be coming soon enough), so there's only one entry at the moment. You can expect the files for the Verizon version and any other localized variants to be posted at the same place just before or after their release.

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.
