We've received news that HTC has just made the HTC Hero kernel source code public. For the average Android user, this isn't big news but for those who like to dib and dabble, tinker and mod their phones, this is magnificent news. Having the HTC Hero kernel source code available to the public releases all the inner workings of the software on the phone--every little painstaking detail. Now everyone will be able to see what HTC did to tweak Android and developers can offer the same performance enhancements in their own builds. Basically, with this, developers will be able to do a lot more and offer deeper access into their phones.
Sounds good by us. We're happy that HTC is following in line with Android's open source nature. What do you guys think?
