Samsung releases Galaxy Note ICS kernel code to developers

Release of Ice Cream Sandwich source code should allow for further custom ROM development

Samsung’s 5.3” hybrid Galaxy Note has been out for a while and sales have never been better, with the 5 million unit threshold being crossed last March.

Now just two weeks after the Note was officially updated to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and ahead of the impending 10.1” Note release, Samsung is making their kernel code available to the public. Starting immediately, the device’s source code will be available online and should help out developers churn more and more custom ROMs.

Unlike most companies, Samsung has been very forward with their software updates and bootloaders, and the latest source code release is no different. Interested parties should head over to Samsung’s Open Source Release Center, and get started on de-TouchWiz-ing their devices.
