  • Kernel Sources for Motorola Devices Appear to Differ from Binaries on Live Devices

    Android's foundations are born in open source, releasing as an open source operating system and growing to be the largest operating system in the world. Without licenses like the General Public License (GPL), open source could not have been enforced...


    The GPL has protected so much of the growing Android community over the years. It allows developers from anywhere in the world to take a device and use the kernel source code to make something great out of it. It’s a recipe for brilliance in some cases, with some amazing feats of intuition and development shown daily by our amazing developer community. To build an AOSP-based ROM for any device, for instance, it’s imperative that we have access to the kernel source code to ensure that the ROM can boot properly.

Over the year we’ve notice that this “double registration process” (creating a wiki page and then filling the registration form) is a bit difficult for some of our participants and we wish to change that. In the plan for the coming months we plan to have a single registration process which will in turn generate a wiki page. We also want to display the event date as some of us cannot celebrate exactly on this international day due to local celebrations or other reasons.
