HTC has made the Gingerbread kernel source for the EVO Shift 4G, HTC Thunderbolt, and Droid Incredible available for download on their developer center website.  As always, unless you're a kernel developer or ROM chef, this won't do too much for you -- other than build anticipation for the awesome new flashables that will be coming soon for these three. 

Devs, have at it.  And don't be afraid to holler at us when you get something good cooked up!

Get to work devs! My shift needs some fixin'!

Does this increase the chances that root will be achieved for GB DInc?

Wow still nothing for the samsung epic

Kronko says:

Incredible? I have not gotten the gingerbread update, they put it on hold. Maybe devs can do a better job now.

Or maybe HTC and Verizon could releasethe update for the correct phone and not the Evo 4G.

This essentially means HTC is done with support for these phones and is handing the baton to independent developers.
