As an Android developer, the first thing I do when I set up Eclipse with ADT on a new machine is hunt down the Android source for the API level I'm working on.

Earlier this month, I added a request for Android 4.0 source to be added to the plugin, and I'm pleased to report that the plugin maintainer just added it to the latest version.

Honeycomb sources are being worked on.

If the smokin' fast Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus still isn't fast enough for you, we have good news. Samsung just released the kernel source code for the device to its Open Source Release Center. This will allow developers to see what the Exynos processor under the Tab 7 Plus' hood is really capable of.

Sammy also dropped the source code for the new Galaxy Tab 10.1N, the redesigned Tab 10.1 that was released in Germany to avoid Apple patent infringement.

Wow, this happened sooner than we expected - but Google just announced only minutes ago that the source code for Android 4.0.1 Ice Cream Sandwich is on its way to Google's AOSP tree right now. We'll update as we learn more. Here's the original post:

Hi! We just released a bit of code we thought this group might be interested in.
Over at our Android Open-Source Project git servers, the source code
for Android version 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) is now available.

Since I'm seeing questions inquiring about Android 4.0's source code drop every 5 minutes here and there, I thought it would be a good idea to point out this blurb in a recent post by an Android engineer Dan Morrill, aka morrildl:

  • To reiterate, these servers contain only the ‘gingerbread’ and ‘master’ branches from the old AOSP servers. We plan to release the source for the recently-announced Ice Cream Sandwich soon, once it’s available on devices.

    At the end of today's Ice Cream Sandwich unveiling, we found out that the ICS SDK (API 14) was available immediately, but a much more important bit - the source code - was not mentioned at all. It didn't really come as a surprise - historically the source was released about a month after the SDK (with the exception of Honeycomb), but I'd like to clarify something right away for those confused between the SDK and the source code.

    We've already seen the source for the AT&T Galaxy S II, the Epic 4G Touch, and a handful of other new devices, so why not throw T-Mo's Galaxy S II into the mix? Sammy dropped the code earlier today -- hit the link below to download it. Let's see how fast that Snapdragon will actually run, gents.

    Samsung officially announced the Galaxy Tab 8.9 yesterday, and today, the kernel source has been released. Considering we already know what the Tegra 2 is capable of and how much it can be overclocked while remaining completely stable, I expect to see 1.4GHz kernels pop up before the device is even released.

    The source is out for both the Wi-Fi and LTE variants, so if you're into tinkerin', hit the respective links below to download.

    While Samsung may have promptly released the kernel source code for Sprint's Epic 4G Touch on release day, it has gone one step further with AT&T's variant and already uploaded the code to its Open Source Release Center. AT&T just announced the launch date of October 2nd this morning, so this makes the code available nearly two weeks before the phone.

    Hit the link below to download.

    Just two short days after Sammy released the kernel source code for the Wi-Fi Galaxy Tab 10.1, developer pershoot released the first overclocked kernel for the device, clocking a smoking 1.4GHz. The VZW variant of the Tab 10.1 will now be able to receive the same treatment, as the kernel source just hit Sammy's Open Source Release Center.
