The device launched in the US in August and it seems that a few users were already antsy about grabbing the kernel code because they raised an issue on the Moto GitHub. Well, their wait is now over since the release is official.

The source is now available to download on GitHub for the Android 7.1.1 NCX26.122-59-8 build. If you don't know what most of these words mean, you needn't worry. As a user, you won't get anything out of the code, but developers can use it to build better and more stable ROMs based off the official kernel source.

The Moto Z2 Force performs well in JerryRigEverything's durability test

Lenovo's latest Moto flagship has been through the mill a bit recently. The problems with the Z2 Force's shatterproof but easily scratchable plastic-covered screen have been well documented, and the smaller battery is one of a number of other disappointments when compared to its predecessor.
