Things are finally on track for HTC One. The latest Android flagship of this Taiwanese manufacturer was hit with production issues in the start which caused launch delays. Now that those setbacks have been done with, and the HTC One is on track for what seems to be a successful launch, the company hasn’t forgotten about the developers that have been anxiously waiting for the code. HTC One kernel source code is now available for download from HTCdev.
To an average user the kernel source code is obviously of no use, but there’s no doubt that developers will now be overjoyed. The “openness” of Android platform allows developers to customize it in a variety of ways. Popular custom ROMs which reinvent the Android experience are widely distributed. Custom ROMs provide users with an entirely new experience, one that is different from stock Android on their device. Some of the most popular custom Android ROMs include CyanogenMod, MIUI and Android Open Kang Project or AKOP. With the kernel source code finally out, developers can get to creating some amazing ROMs for the HTC One.
