Samsung Releases Kernel Sources For Verizon Galaxy S3


After OEMs release an Android smartphone, according to the GPL, they are obligated to release the kernel source in 9 weeks. Some manufacturers release it sonner, others later, but they all fulfill their obligation.

Samsung is one of the fastest OEMs to release source code for their new devices, and they’ve just proved that today, when they released the source for the Verizon Galaxy S3. This is a big treat for developers, but still, the VZW Galaxy S3 has a locked bootloader, but that won’t stop the bright developers to develop high quality ROMs and kernels.
