The Moto X, proudly made in the good ol’ US of A, from Motorola, has been made available over AT&T for nearly a week now, and it is also tipped to arrive tomorrow via online orders through another of the big four mobile carriers Stateside – namely, Verizon Wireless. As for the other carriers, they have more or less remained mum on the specific release dates, but it seems that Motorola has been impatient on those additional releases, having posted the kernel source code for the AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint variants of the Moto X.
Just to make sure that everyone who reads this is on the same page, the kernel source code that was posted is not the full source code that comes with the relevant and necessary binaries which would be required if one were to churn out their very own custom ROM for the Moto X. The kernel source code does, however, carry enough with it so that those who are equipped with the relevant technical know how will still be able to tinker with it, creating some very nice uses for modders, including churning out their own custom kernels that can subsequently be used to overclock the Moto X or perhaps even make its power efficiency levels increase.
