Motorola hasn’t been doing well lately. Several planned phones have seemingly been delayed or cancelled, and half of the company’s engineering team in Chicago was laid off earlier this month. While Oreo has yet to be released for the company’s 2016 flagship (at least beyond carrier testing), developers can now download the updated kernel source code.
If you’re not familiar with how this works, the Linux kernel that Android uses falls under the GPL license.

Xiaomi promised that the Mi A1 would receive Oreo by the end of 2017, and the company hit a buzzer-beater by rolling out Android 8.0 to the Android One device on December 30th. But the kernel source code was nowhere to be found, a violation of the GNU General Public License, version 2 (GPLv2), and an affront to the development and enthusiast community. It’s about two-and-a-half months late, but Xiaomi has finally released the Android 8.0 Oreo source code for the Mi A1.

Just as it did after the unveiling of the Galaxy S8/S8+, Samsung has published the kernel sources for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. But this time around, the company has gone ahead and released the code for the Exynos and Snapdragon models at the same time.
Of course, these won’t be of much use to the everyday consumer. To a developer, though, this means that custom development can commence.

Motorola’s flagship devices still get updates relatively quickly, but its budget phones lag behind quite a bit. For example, the Verizon Moto G4 Play was just updated from Android 6.0 to 7.1.1 earlier this month, shortly after the international variants received it. Now Motorola has released the kernel source code for the G4 Play’s Nougat update.
The kernel source for ‘Harpia’ (the G4 Play’s codename) was published earlier today on GitHub.

Android OEMs are required to release the kernel source code every time they push a new Android version to a device. It includes any modifications they’ve made and its what tinkerers then use to build custom ROMs other mods. Some OEMs are quick to release the code after an update, whereas some drag their heels. In this instance, Samsung has been impeccably fast.
After a thorough beta program, Samsung finally started rolling out Anrdoid 8.0 Oreo to the Galaxy S8 and S8+ yesterday.

HMD Global, the exclusive manufacturer of Nokia-branded phones, has done a pretty good job of keeping their devices up-to-date. Late last month, for instance, the company opened up the Android 8.1 beta for the Nokia 8. But this doesn’t change the fact that it’s been 136 days since HMD’s Chief Product Officer, Juho Sarvikas, tweeted that the kernel source code for the Nokia 8 would be shared with the open-source community — and it still hasn’t happened.

Now that Huawei’s plans of selling phones on US carriers have fallen apart, the company appears to be trying something different – appealing to hardcore Android enthusiasts looking for inexpensive phones. OnePlus is easily the leader in that niche, after Google stopped selling its budget-friendly Nexus phones. The Honor View10 (Honor is a sub-brand of Huawei) is already targeting OnePlus, and now the company is helping community developers create ROMs, recoveries, and kernels.

Earlier in January, the online chatter about Xiaomi’s delay/unwillingness to release kernel source codes for its Mi A1 phone reached a peak. Given how popular this little gem of a phone has become (read my take or Corbin’s review) and all that it could do for a measly $ 220 price tag, as well as the fact that it runs Android One, Google’s own official software for third-parties, it was quite unbecoming of Xiaomi to not release the source or take such a long time to do so.
