HTC Drops ICS Kernel Source For Sensation, Sensation XE, Vivid – Get It While It's Hot

Just under a week after starting the Sensation's Ice Cream Sandwich Rollout, HTC has dropped the ICS kernel source for the Sensation, Sensation XE, and Vivid, much to the delight of their respective development communities. This news follows hot on the heels of Samsung's Galaxy SII kernel source drop, and seems to suggest a promising pattern among the two manufacturers of maintaining punctuality in releasing source.

For the many developers who have been prodding HTC to release the source since the devices' ICS updates started rolling out, this is great news, and should give a jolt to Sensation and Vivid development.

HP Finally Gives Up Touchpad's Android Kernel Source (From Touchpads Caught Running Android In The Wild)

Remember back when an HP Touchpad was spotted running Android out of the box? Well, it would appear that after some cajoling, the CM team (in association with an attorney) have convinced HP to release the Touchpad's Android kernel source, along with a couple of other GPL components specifically modified for Android-powered Touchpads accidentally released to the wild. In addition to the kernel, HP released code to androidvncserver and i2c-tools.

[Update: Now With ICS Source] Gold For Android Developers: Add AOSP Source Code To Eclipse With The "Android Sources" Plugin

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.

Samsung Releases Source Code For The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus And The Galaxy Tab 10.1N

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.

Android Engineer: Ice Cream Sandwich AOSP Source Code Will Be Released, But Not Before Galaxy Nexus Goes On Sale

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.

    CyanogenMod Team: There Will Be No Official SDK Port Of Ice Cream Sandwich By The CM Team - CM9 Will Arrive When The ICS Source Does

    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.

    Samsung Releases Kernel Source Code For The Galaxy Tab 8.9 Wi-Fi And LTE Variants

    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.
