Google Play HTC One

Kernel source published —​ but no update for devices just yet

HTC has released the kernel source code and related platform support files for the Google Play edition HTC One, as required under the GPL. The code drop comes ahead of the Google Play HTC One's Android 4.3 update — officially, the phone's still on 4.2.2, and we've not seen any updates on our own devices just yet.

The kernel source code is from software version 3.06.1700.10 (up from 2.14.1700.15) and Linux kernel version 3.4.10 (unchanged from the 4.2 firmware.)

We've checked Samsung's open source release center and there's no Android 4.3 code on there just yet, so it looks like HTC's first out the gate with its kernel release. In any case, hopefully this means the 4.3 update for Google Play edition phones is just around the corner. We'll let you know as soon as the updates start rolling out.

Google Play edition HTC One Android 4.3 kernel source released


Based on what I saw in the Nexus 4 forum, I can wait to get 4.3. My S4 Google Edition is running just fine!

The Nexus line is superior to all other OEM devices out there when it comes to software and firmware updates.

Can't wait for the rom cookers to incorporate 4.3. I'm running it on my 2013 Nexus 7. It's sweet.

Got my 4.3 update about 2hrs ago. No home button mapping like on the 4.2.2 version of sense, at least that I can find. It did fix my Play Movies playback though, so now I can finally watch movies I've bought from the Play Store on my phone.
