Did Samsung just drop the Kernel source code for the Google Edition S4?

The flashing community is going to love this. Samsung has apparently jumped the gun and aired the Kernel source files for its Google Edition Galaxy S4.

The Kernel source code could allow developers to tailor their custom ROMs to the underlying hardware – making the radio, camera and many other components work as they should.

The Snapdragon-running Galaxy S4 corresponds to the I9505G model number and hasn’t even gone to retail stores yet – US customers can get it from Google Play starting June 26 for $649. If you’ve gotten your hands on a Snapdragon-powered S4 already, then you may just want to wait for a purified ROM to come out.

With this leaked source code, that could be sooner rather than later. Get it while it’s hot here.
