Most of the Android smartphone manufacturers tend to release the Open Source Kernel Source Code of their smartphones, whenever an anew devices release as per the Android Open Source Project license Agreement (AOSP). TO comply with this, the Koren manufacturer Samsung also has just released the Open Source Kernel for the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ smartphones, which have launched back in February.
Any developers or software testers can avail the Kernel Source code for the smartphones, which they can utilise for developing the CUstom build ROMs for Galaxy S9 smartphones, adding new features or a bug fix. The Kernel includes the proprietary drivers and other essential core files which are needed to make the ROM stable and compatible with the devices.
In case you are interested in grabbing the Kernel, you can avail it from the Samsung’s Open Source website OSRC (Open Source Release Centre) with certain agreements. Currently, the Kernel is available for specific models only including SM-G960F, SM-G960U, SM-G965F, and SM-G965U smartphones, which are basically US models of the Galaxy S9 and S9+. If you are a developer, feel free to download from the Samsung’s website here; also, make sure you are aware what you are dealing with.
