Source Code for HTC One M8 available on HTC Dev

M8-cover

Now available on HTC Dev, you can grab the kernel source code for the HTC One M8. This is for both the Sense 6 version of the device for a variety of international carriers as well as the Google Play edition of the phone which we sadly won’t see in Australia (at least, not officially).

Developers and hackers will be thrilled to see this source code as it’s going to give the third party ROMs a shot in the arm for the new generation of flagships, no doubt it won’t be long before we see nightly builds of Cyanogen or an early build of MIUI for the device.

Given the Open Source core of Android, forcing manufacturers to release their source code makes sense (pardon the pun) and allows the continued development of the platform: Discuss.
