Samsung has released the kernel source code (and other GPL bits of code for open-source software) for the D700, which we all know and love as the Epic 4G. Does this mean a stable Gingerbread build is imminent? We have no idea, but we do know that the many of you guys who have long forgotten about the official update path should now have even better custom ROM's to flash, and developers can carry on doing what they do independently from Samsung and Sprint. That's why we love open-source software. If you're a kernel developer, or think now would be a good time to start, grab it from the source link (search for D700).
