Motorola’s new releases – the Moto X and Moto G have been available for only a few weeks and the company has released the kernel source code for both these devices. The source codes are available to download on Motorola’s development GitHub in the form of a single compressed archive as being confirmed by a Motorola staff member in the comment section of the wider MSM kernel.
The Kernel is the Linux-based baseline software that stands between Android and the phone or tablet hardware – allowing both to interact flawlessly. The release of the Moto X (2014) and Moto G (2014) kernel source code means that ROM developers no longer have to build their own drivers and other core hardware controlling software. This is what Open Source is all about, we all work together, share our accomplishments and make for a better experience for all.
If you are up for loading new ROMs with customized features, visit the site Motorola GitHub and grab your copy of the kernel source code. You will find the code for Moto X under the name “Victara” and Moto G codenamed “Titan”. It is expected that Motorola will push the updates as and when new software is released, but the Android 5.0 update will need a new kernel.
