Android tech-savvy and developers rejoice as Samsung has just released Galaxy S III’s kernel source code. This means that modders will now be able to start creating custom kernels based on Samsung’s Android flagship smartphone.
Devs should take into consideration that the source code released is only valid for the international version of Galaxy S III
(GT-I9300). However, we can safely assume that as soon as the North American variant goes on sale, Samsung will publish the kernel source as well.
Still, Android developers will be able to take advantage of this source code in order to tinker with one of the best smartphones that is now available on the market.
The Galaxy S III source code is now available for download
via Samsung Open Source Community site, but in order to access it users will need a valid account.
