HTC releases kernel for Google Play Edition HTC One (M8)

The HTC One (M8) was announced last week, and alongside it the Taiwanese company announced a Google Play Edition that runs a vanilla version of Android out of box.

While the device isn’t available yet (although it is up for preorder on Google Play in the US), HTC has released the kernel source through its HTCDev developer portal.

Unless you’re an app developer or want a look at some of the under-the-hood workings of HTC’s new flagship, the 131.7MB worth of data won’t be of much use, as it’s designed mainly around improving app support for the upcoming GPe.

Still, if you want to get your hands on the kernel you can follow the above link. Meanwhile, learn all you need to know about HTC’s new One flagship in our extensive review.
