With the first batch of Android One devices on the way, MediaTek has released the kernel source code for the devices for developers to take advantage of. The source is available on Google’s Android repository.
Other OEMs that use MediaTek processors typically aren’t compliant with releasing source code for their hardware, so it’s nice to see the company bypassing the company and releasing this on their own. Hopefully we’ll see other companies follow suit.
