Samsung publishes kernel source code for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge
Samsung has just published the kernel source code for the Galaxy S6 (SM-G920) and S6 Edge (SM-G925) on the Samsung Opensource Release Center website. While consumers may not find this news all that appealing, developers can now download the source code to enhance their application functionality for both of the new flagships. This news comes after HTC’s recent release of the kernel source code for its new One M9 handset.
When manufacturers release source codes for their devices, that usually means we’ll start seeing multiple custom ROMs available for the handsets sometime in the near future. Unfortunately, Samsung hasn’t released complete documentation for its in-house built Exynos 7420 processor, which makes it more difficult for modders to start building their custom ROMs. We’ll be sure to update you when we hear any more on the subject, but for now, consumers will have to do some waiting.
