Samsung releases T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3 source code for Android 4.4.2

KitKat source indicates that KitKat itself could be ready for T-Mobile's Note 3

Samsung has posted the open-source components of Android 4.4.2 for the T-Mobile branded Galaxy Note 3 today. This is not news in and of itself, as manufacturers are supposed to post the open-source code they have used. But when we see code for software we don't yet have, that's another story.

Posting the code means that Samsung thinks it is ready for production. Typically, we have seen source code two or three days before an actual update, and we're hoping to see the same thing here. Of course, it may not be ready for production and it just got posted early. Yeah, I'm a party-pooper sometimes.

Anyhoo, if you have a need for the KitKat source for the T-Mobile Note 3, you can grab it from Samsung's open source page. If you're just anticipating the release of KitKat for the T-Mobile Note 3, come have a seat over here with the rest of us by the electrical outlets.

Thanks, everyone who sent this in!
