As Motorola's first phone developed start to finish under Google's corporate umbrella, the Moto X is getting more than a little attention from developers, modders, and ROM enthusiasts. They'll be happy to know that the kernel source code for various models of the Moto X are now available on SourceForge. Kernel code is available for three models: AT&T (XT1058), T-Mobile (XT1053), and Sprint (XT1056).

The choice of models is a bit surprising, since there's still no word of when Sprint will start selling its version of the Moto X, though they've had a sign-up page for weeks.

It's okay to love kernel source – you can admit it. Sony is pretty good to the open source community, and in keeping with that reputation, it has posted the open source files for the Sony Xperia M. Yay.

The Xperia M is a budget device with a 1GHz Snapdragon S4 dual-core, 1GB of RAM, and a 4-inch 854×480 LCD. There's no LTE, but the Xperia M will be produced in a dual-SIM variant.

Another Android device is on the way to release, and that means it's time for the kernel source to be posted online. Samsung has been so kind as to drop the code for two variants of the Galaxy NX camera on us – the standard international, and a version for South East Asia.

The Jelly Bean-based packages are a hefty 1.1GB for each device, and Samsung's servers are pretty sluggish. Any developers that want to dig around in the code from this bizarre product should get that download started now.

Getting access to kernel source code is a big deal for developers. It has a lot to do with getting all the neat features to work in your favorite ROMs. You might not swoon when Samsung drops the code for new devices, but you should be happy someone does. This time it's the bizarro Galaxy S4 Zoom that's hitting Samsung's open source site.

Kernel source code is an important part of a ROM developer's everyday life. It's what enables them to bring new features to your favorite device. What gives them with the opportunity to improve battery life, overclock (underclock) the processor, and so much more. For the average Joe, it's no big deal; for developers, however, it's a valuable asset.

A new device has just popped up on Samsung's open source site with the enticing model number GT-i9505G. For those not keeping track, the Snapdragon-packing Galaxy S4 is the GT-i9505. Samsung may have just dropped the kernel source for the Google Edition GS4 before the device is even out.

The same model number is also appearing in the Bluetooth registry, and there is a new WiFi Alliance certification for it. The hardware listing does look identical to the standard Galaxy S4, but that doesn't necessarily prove anything.

It's not just the high-end Galaxy S4 that deserves to have it's kernel source plastered all over the internet. Budget handsets might as well get the same treatment. To that end, Samsung has posted the code for its Galaxy Ace 3 Duos and Galaxy Amp.

It was way back in early May that the kernel source for Sprint and US Cellular Galaxy S4 variants showed up on Samsung's servers. The Virgin Mobile Canada edition was added in April. The Verizon and AT&T devices came in the following weeks, but no peep from the T-Mobile version. Well, until today – Samsung just posted the T-Mobile GS4 kernel source in all its glory.

HTC must've been doing a bit of spring (read: summer) cleaning when it suddenly stumbled across some source code that should've been released to the public ages ago. First up is the AT&T HTC One's kernel source, which was nowhere to be found back in late April when all other One variants' source hit the scene.

What's even more interesting, however, is that the company also released the Thunderbolt's ICS kernel source.

There's nothing like a fresh batch of source code to get you through another Monday morning. Samsung has just posted the kernel source for two of its newer S4 variants, the Galaxy S4 active (i9295), and the dual-SIM version of the Galaxy S4 Mini (i9192). Samsung has been on an open source run lately with the AT&T GS4 and Galaxy Tab 8.0 going up just last week.
