    HTC Releases Thunderbolt Kernel Source Code


    After bickering back and forth with the Android community about the terms and timelines of kernel source releases and getting flooded with emails, HTC finally put together the source code for the Thunderbolt kernel and uploaded it to their developer portal. The file weighs in at 87MB and will enable ROM developers to finally do some proper work on custom ROMs, including improving battery life, over- and under-clocking, and implementing other tweaks (hopefully, it includes LTE drivers so that CyanogenMod devs donít have to reverse engineer the protocol and write their own driver).

    Download the kernel v2.6.32 from HTC

    wow! way to go HTC! if only more manufacturers were more like HTC...

    this is a perfect example of something that HTC absolutely did not HAVE to do, but they did anyway because of the open-source philosophy surrounding android and Linux-proper alike. it's great to see at least one manufacturer realize that adopting the open-source philosophy and increasing the company's bottom-line do not have to be mutually exclusive.
