HTC Drops Kernel Source Code For One S - Once Again Neglects The US Version On T-Mobile

HTC has given developers another treat today, in the form of kernel source code for the HTC One S. HTC's Dev Center has the downloads available, categorized by carrier and region. Unfortunately, the US variant on T-Mobile is conspicuously absent from the list. Previously, when HTC released the kernel source for the One X, the AT&T version was similarly missing and remains so to this day.


HTC hasn't explained why the US models are being left off the list, though it isn't difficult to imagine that the US carriers are simply more fussy than operators elsewhere in the world.

HTC Releases One X Kernel Source Code – AT&T Variant Conspicuously Absent

Keeping up with its trend of timely code release, HTC dropped kernel source code for the HTC One X today, the same day the device became available through AT&T. The code release includes kernel source for the One X across a range of carriers and regions, including Optus, T-Mobile, Orange, Vodafone, and more, though the list notably excludes AT&T.


While HTC's release of One X kernel source is certainly a step in the right direction, the AT&T variant's absence is unsettling, and many are no doubt still wondering when (or if) the device may be allowed into HTC's bootloader unlock program after a controversial statement from the manufacturer Friday.

HTC Unloads Kernel Source Code For A Bevy Of Devices, Including The One V

HTC, keeping up with its recent pattern of speedy source release, has dropped official ICS kernel source code for a heaping handful of devices, perhaps most notably the One V, a member of HTC's new One line which hasn't yet debuted in many countries.

Other devices include the US variant of the Vivid and several iterations of the Sensation, with the Desire HD and myTouch 4G Slide's Gingerbread (2.3) kernel source also being dropped.

Samsung Pushes The Galaxy S II Ice Cream Sandwich Kernel Source Code To The Open Source Release Center

Samsung, a company once known for taking far too long to release updates and source code, has really done a 180 degree turn-around over the last several months. Updates are now coming in a more timely manner, and source code sometimes hits the scene before the device it supports is even released.

Keeping up with its current approach of timeliness, Samsung has now pushed the Ice Cream Sandwich kernel source code for the international version of the Galaxy S II, which just started receiving the update one week ago.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 Kernel Source Code Hits The Open Source Release Center

While we've yet to actually see a release date for the Galaxy Tab 7.7 that Samsung debuted back in September, the company has now dropped the kernel source code for the device. In the past, this usually indicates an impending release, so we're willing to bet that availability will be officially announced at CES next week.


For those who need a reminder of what the Tab 7.7 is all about:

  • 7.7-inch 1280x800 Super AMOLED Plus display (the first tablet to have this)
  • 1.4GHz dual-core Exynos
  • 3MP rear shooter, 2MP 'round front
  • Android 3.2
  • 5,100mAh battery

Of course, a lot can change in three months, so we may actually see some changes made to the specs of the device before its release.
